twitter user names: if you authorize with twitter, avalantern will convert avalantern user names with @twitter user names! you don't even need to worry about it!
linking to the outside: ever find, when you're writing a post, that you want to link to a common site, but don't want to go all the way over there to find the actual url? let avalantern do it for you! if you write a link, using markdown, simply mention the common site in your parentheses. for example: (the beatles) [itunes artist] (tiananmen square) [google images] (neil young) [amazon] (eternal sunshine) [imdb] avalantern will then convert that into a link, and you'll never need to leave avalantern!
i just purchased an iPhone 3GS. which means i will have a super new mobile device. even more super, perhaps, than the one i have now. and it's 32gb!
i play guitar. i could not bring my guitar to china, but i hope to find one while i'm here. playing my guitar makes me happy.
this is a new tidbit - yay! woot! hooray!
time: prefer 24 hour timestamps? or maybe a shortened name? change your time format in your settings
connecting to twitter: you can easily sync your avalantern ellipses with twitter! in settings/twitter, authorize with twitter, and set your preferences. because of the authorization method (known as oauth), avalantern will never see your password, and you can cancel the authorization any time via twitter.com!
