Sleep is unproductive and a waste of time. - Louis Gray
Sleep is productive and a good use of time. Also comes in handy for preventing psychosis ;-) - Steel Penguin Slippy

I'm going to miss that extra hour of sleep.

That is a remarkable bot. - Spidra Webster

Sleep is unproductive and a waste of... whatever Joe said. - Louis Gray
your memory is going, Louis. get some sleep. :D - Big Joe Silence
I remembered to come say hi to you sillies. So my memory is doing just fine. - Louis Gray

I broke a record last night. No, not that, dirty mind. I went to sleep at 21:00 and woke up from my alarm at 6:00.
Sleep is unproductive and a waste of time. - Louis Gray
Ha, Mr. Gray's automated sleep response script. :-) - Stephan Planken
Automated? - Louis Gray
Wow, this is almost AI! - Stephan Planken
AI is overrated. - Louis Gray
Tell that to Larry Page, Ray Kurzweil and Peter Norvig. - Sean McBride
An AI would never wear the shirts Peter wears ;-) - Amit Patel

One last test before I go sleep, live input that's not from the mic :)

I would *love it* if someone pushed me around in a carriage, outside, with a cool breeze, for 5.5 miles. I'd sleep soundly, too.

I have the day off work today.
My kids have a minimum day. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
The Clubhouse is full on Wednesdays. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
It's teacher conference week. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Their mom is out of town this week, so I have the kids full-time. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
(This will coalesce into a narrative in a bit, bear with me.) - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I have been staying up too late lately, and I had worked up a sizable sleep debt from the Olympics. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I am, by nature, a night person. Waking up at 6:30 or 7:00 to get the kids up and fed and dressed and transported to school by 8:07 (when I live 20-25 minutes away from their school) is not something that comes easily to me. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
This afternoon I have a conference with Sammy's teacher, and then they have a doctor's appointment, and then we need to work on their homework and projects. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I have a third date this evening. (Sitter arrives at 6.) - Stephen Mack from iPhone
And I am giving an executive presentation tomorrow, which is not nearly ready. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Since the return trip back to my house is more than an hour due to traffic, I intended to work on my presentation at a cafe near the school this morning. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Instead, after dropping off the kids, I napped in my car. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Observations of car napping: - Stephen Mack from iPhone
* Heat regulation is challenging. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
* My neck hurts. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
* I feel gross. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
* People jogging by the park gave me weird looks. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
* Even quiet neighborhoods are noisy. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
* Despite all that, I napped for nearly three hours and I feel awesome. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Wow. That's great you managed 3 hrs! - Tamara J. B.
Whoa. A three-hour car nap. Amazing. - Akiva
I'm a sleep athlete. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Car naps are no bueno. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
JEALOUS! - MoTO Moca Blend
Also, good luck on the date. - MoTO Moca Blend from Android
I second MoTO. Have fun! - Anne Bouey
Having taken lots of car naps while pregnant with Luke, I totally agree on the heat regulation! Often I'd wake up sweating. - Yvonne from FFHound!
Sleep is a waste of time and unproductive. - Louis Gray
I'm sleeping extra to celebrate. - Amit Patel
I'm amazed that you can actually sleep in a car. I have done it in my truck, when horseback riding in the mountains, before Sophie was born. But I never felt rested. (It worked better sleeping on the floor of the horse trailer.) - Stephan Planken from iPhone
I have an air mattress in the back of my mini-van for just such occasions. And, yes, people give you weird and sometimes dirty looks. - Spidra Webster
Sleep athlete, you are my soul mate!!! - Janet from FFHound!
I like how Louis threw down a remix of his mantra. - Akiva
Holly's favorite Anna
Ladies: Have you noticed that the Fitbit One seems to count more steps when you wear it in your bra than when you wear it in your pocket? Or is it just me?
i had the opposite problem, actually. - holly #ravingfangirl
Mine seems more accurate (matches gym equipment stride count) on my bra. - Jennifer Dittrich from FFHound!
Well, maybe I did walk this much today. I don't know. I needed a nap when I got home, but I also got up at 6am after a restless night, so.... - Holly's favorite Anna
What made me question it was the "steps" counted when I was sitting in a car for an hour and a half. The road was a little bumpy, and my bra is old. - Holly's favorite Anna
*wonders if this thread will encourage Stephen Mack and Louis Gray to find novel ways to increase their step count.* - Eric Logan
From what some of my female friends and I have observed, it depends on how much bounce you have. - Katy S
Eric, what makes you think I don't wear it in my bra? - Louis Gray
I figured you probably would attach it to the twins. I just was unsure how it was accomplished. - Eric Logan
"Twins." - Stephen Mack from iPhone

Today is my 15th anniversary of starting at TiVo. -
This was a blog-type thing I wrote about my first two weeks there (written in HTML, at a time before blogging software was commonplace). I don't like reading what I wrote from back then, the writing is awful. The layout is too! But I do remember what it was like in those early days. Crazy days. - Stephen Mack
I don't think the writing was awful. I enjoyed what I read. Thanks for posting this :) - Brent Schaus
Congratulations. - Eric Logan
Congrats! - Spidra Webster
And congratulations, Stephen! - Brent Schaus
I read the whole page. The writing was not awful. In fact, I kept wanting to read more. - Betsy
I liked it. Congratulations, Stephen! - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Thank you, Eric, Spidra, Brent, Betsy, and Stephan! (Brent, Betsy, and Stephan, thanks for reading it, and I'm glad you enjoyed it, but to me it just sounds like, "I ate this and that, and I worked long hours, waaaaah.") - Stephen Mack
I am enjoying reading the "smack talk" blog. What an adventure! - Amit Patel
I'm always interested in the seemingly boring details of what people do all day. "Oh, I work on projects" doesn't tell me anything, whereas "I tried to get the drivers installed, I appropriated a chair from someone's desk, and spent five hours writing part of a manual" sounds a lot more real. EDIT: when I said "seemingly boring" I mean that others might think they are boring but to me they're fascinating. I always wonder what people do at work. - Betsy
Woah, Tivo is that old? - Mo Kargas
Wow! Congrats, dude! - Jim is digging out.
Congrats Stephen. - Me
Congratulations, Stephen! Been a good ride so far? - Anne Bouey
A very good ride! And I'm such a different person from 15 years ago. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
:) And it's such a great pleasure to know you! - Anne Bouey
I love this stuff, Stephen! Congrats! - Louis Gray
Thank you all! - Stephen Mack from iPhone

In high school, I was an acolyte at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church up until my senior year. #saturdayff
However, I didn't get my driver's license until I was 18. - Stephen Mack
The church was nearby, but not close enough to walk. - Stephen Mack
So if my parents weren't going on a Sunday, I would have to arrange a ride. - Stephen Mack
My Sophomore year, I was the lead altar boy, and would call each of the people on a list to make sure we had enough acolytes. (I was always amused when I called any of the female names on the list and her dad would answer suspiciously, saying "Who's calling?" quite rudely until I said I was calling from the church, and then they would suddenly be polite.) - Stephen Mack
It was usually easy enough to have someone on the list pick me up and take me to the church. - Stephen Mack
One weekend, our Virginia relatives were visiting. Our house in Saratoga was filled with relatives sleeping in all the bedrooms, so I slept under the dining room table. - Stephen Mack
We had stayed up late playing hearts the night before, and I forgot to set an alarm. - Stephen Mack
So I overslept. I didn't wake up until I heard a knock at the front door from Catherine, who was the co-lead, there to pick me up. - Stephen Mack
So I jumped up awake, hitting my head on the dining room table, and dashed into the bathroom to get dressed and meet her at the door. - Stephen Mack
Unfortunately, I had started my habit of sleeping nude when I was 12 or 13. - Stephen Mack
So since our front door was glass-lined, I'm pretty sure she saw me streaking from the dining room to the bathroom. - Stephen Mack
When I greeted her at the door, neither of us acknowledged anything out of the ordinary, and we made polite chit-chat until we got to church. - Stephen Mack
I debated apologizing and/or asking if she'd seen anything, but it didn't seem like I should take the chance. So to this day, I never knew what (if anything) she saw. - Stephen Mack
--fin-- - Stephen Mack
P.S. I didn't stop believing in God until college, but that's a story for another #saturdayff - Stephen Mack
LOL that you still slept nude when sleeping under the dining room table! - Spidra Webster
P.P.S. They also made us sing "Silent Night" at the end of the Christmas service from the back of the church while holding candles, without the congregation also singing. My singing voice is horrible, so I would just mouth the words. I felt like such a cheater! - Stephen Mack
Spidra, I had a sleeping pad and a sleeping bag. It would have been too warm not to sleep the way I normally slept... - Stephen Mack
And THAT is why we always knock when we go to Stephen's house instead of just opening the door. - Louis Gray
Stephen Mack
Jimmy from GlassWest was a total pro. (This is regarding - Stephen Mack from iPhone

Having someone come to my place of work to perform a service? It feels great, like I'm some big shot. - Stephen Mack from iPhone

You ARE a big shot. - Louis Gray
I've replaced both a windshield and the driver's side window (in my youthful days) and I can say with some certainty that I never ever want to try doing either again. And yes, workplace onsite repairs are the best. Too bad the oil change guys won't work that way. In fact, why can't we have a veritable pit crew show up at our parking stall and give it a complete once over every six months or so?! - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Stephen Mack
Damn. Someone broke into my car between 5 and 7 at work tonight. Smashed the driver side window. Stole some random crazy stuff like headphones and toiletries -- but left my wallet and its cash alone. Uh, what? (EDIT: All fixed now, see
Oh, wow, I am so sorry :( - Jennifer Dittrich
This sucks mate. - Mo Kargas
What a crapper. I'm glad they didn't take your wallet. - Anika
It could have been so much worse! Why steal my expired Zoo membership cards but leave my wallet behind? They ransacked through the glove compartment and various other compartments, saw the wallet, but didn't take a thing out of it. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
oh noes!!!! - Mary Carmen
That really sucks. As for the smalltime stuff, I've had that happen to my car before. I think it's homeless folks looking for things they find useful but so small that if they get caught it's clear they weren't after money. The odds are they won't get caught so it's worth taking the risk for them. My car was broken into and a flashlight and travel alarm clock were taken. Nothing else. - Spidra Webster
Oh geez. :-( - John (bird whisperer)
GAH! People suck. - Melly

man, that sucks! Did you report it yet? - imabonehead
That is terrible. - Eric - Watch Me Now from iPhone

Do not like. :(. Where were you parked? Out by TiVo Central? Rain damage? - Ken Gidley from iPhone
:( - Eivind
Oh no! - Katy S
Sorry to hear. This happened to me once. Whoever it was didn't take my wallet that was left in prominent display, but did take the few pennies in change that were rolling around, and my sweaty gym clothes. Weird. - Uli
Ima: I did report it through our on-site security guards. Police declined to investigate in person. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Lisa: Good question with no good answer. I normally wouldn't but I didn't need it on me today, so left it there (hidden from view) because I didn't feel like carrying it around. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Ken: Yeah, boonies by TiVo Central where I normally park. Probably a bit of rain damage -- hard to tell with all the glass everywhere. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Louis: Thanks but not for a few more days. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Spidra and Uli: It is so weird. There must be a logic they're following but I cannot fathom it. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Thanks for the support and kind words, all. I feel fortunate to still have my wallet. The window can be easily replaced and nothing of great value was taken. Just inconvenient. It did make me late for a date, but she was very flexible about changing plans and helping me out. We had a good time. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Boooo. At least you're safe. It's just a drag. - Gabrielle from FFHound(roid)!

Jerks! I'm sorry this happened to you, Stephen. I know how it feels. :( - Jenny H. from Android
Damn :((( - Iain Baker
Whut. Not cool. - Steven Perez
I'd be extra vigilant around the house. If you think they looked at your wallet at all, they might have your address. - vicster: full-bodied
Good grief! :/ - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
bogus... though now I'm hella curious what lucky lady scored a date with The Mack. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat
Noooo! :( - Ross Miller
Argh, bad, bad :) - ҀҾѦ
That blows!! Sorry!! - Georgia
Not cool, though I'm glad your wallet was left intact. I'm intrigued as to why someone wouldn't steal cash. Spidra's insights are fascinating. - Corinne L
Vicster, good thinking and I had the same worry. Fortunately my brother-in-law is living with me and is there during the hours I'm not there, so I'm not too worried. - Stephen Mack
T-Ra: :)))) - Stephen Mack
Just got off the phone with my Farmers agent (my friend Al, a great guy and long-time family friend), who arranged for a glass company to come out today at noon to TiVo to clean out the glass and replace the window. I do have a small deductible, but he arranged a discount, so my out-of-pocket cost will be under $100 to get this taken care of. Could be worse! - Stephen Mack
Corinne and Spidra: The hard part for me to understand still is when someone causes hundreds of dollars of damage (like when they smashed Spidra's radio) but only pockets items worth $20 or less. I guess that's why New Yorkers in the '80s and '90s would leave their cars unlocked and/or post "no radio in car" signs. - Stephen Mack
I love the collective wisdom here, things I never knew nor considered. Most of our smash and grab car events are not homeless but those needing things to sell for drug money. - Janet from FFHound!
Perhaps they were looking for drugs? - Todd Hoff
ouch ,.. they must be just vandels.. if they had taken Wallet and cash.. then thats a bigger felony - Peter Dawson
They must have been high....and missed the wallet - ابوتایغر الزندیقی
What a lousy thing to happen! Sorry to hear it. - Son of Groucho
:-( - Bruce Lewis
Damn. Maybe when they realized who they were stealing from they fled in terror. - Jim is digging out. from iPhone

That stinks, Stephen. Sorry it happened to you. It happened to me once in college, and to my spouse about 10 years ago. After she had been shopping in Target she deposited the couple of small bags of miscellany into the car, then walked next door to the supermarket (where she worked.) She came out 10 minutes later and the passenger window was shattered. $500 damage for about $20 worth... more... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

From the snopes article: "It's a circumstance many people find unbelievable — that there are two people living in the United States today who are the direct offspring of children born to a man who not only served as President of the United States twenty years before Abraham Lincoln did, but who was a contemporary of such titanic early American political figures as Henry Clay, Daniel Webster, and John C. Calhoun, and was himself born when George Washington was President. This remarkably short line of ascendancy is due to a confluence of factors that are not common in modern American society but once were not so unusual: men (particularly widowers) marrying much younger women late in life and fathering large numbers of children. John Tyler fathered fifteen children, more than any other U.S. president: eight with his first wife, Letitia Christian Tyler (who was his own age), and seven more with Julia Gardiner Tyler (a woman thirty years his junior) whom he married two years after the... more... - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet

Why You'll Never Make A Living Playing Live Poker Tournaments -
Why You'll Never Make A Living Playing Live Poker Tournaments
"It's nearly impossible to be a tournament specialist in the States unless playing high stakes. Even in Vegas, the full schedule of tournament series supplemented by dailies isn't a viable profession. Yeah, you can make money doing it, but not nearly as much as you can make playing $1-$3 no-limit. If you want to be a tournament specialist, move to Mexico and grind online. If your cash game has holes, it's time to plug them." - Louis Gray from Bookmarklet
During the height of TV and online poker a few years ago there were very regular tournaments in Vegas, but most casinos have cut back their poker rooms and tournaments. Back then my friend bought into a tourny at Caesar's and they had cameras everywhere. Not so unusual for the time. It's all about the cash game now, which is many hours of grinding with a sufficient bankroll as the article points out. - Eric - Watch Me Now

Books Step Behind the Curtain of Tech's Leading Companies
"The end of 2013 brought us an unusual array of tales on technology going behind the public faces of some of technology's biggest names, including Apple, Google, Amazon and the newest $30 billion kid on the block, Twitter. So I spent a good amount of the holiday break taking in stories, with their own various embellishments, covering the challenges of building a mobile operating system at Google and Apple, the executive tug of war and pivot of Twitter, the focus on design in Jony Ive's laboratory, and how Amazon has craftily executed on its plan to become the single store for everything under the sun." - Louis Gray from Bookmarklet

For a typical workweek, what's the delta in time from when you get up to when you arrive at your desk? Does it vary much day to day?

an hour and a half. Nope, not much - WebGoddess
It can vary from one hour to seven hours, depending on what I have planned to do before work. - Julian
On days when I have my kids, I wake up at 6:30 and am at work at a few minutes before 9 (as long as traffic isn't terrible), so that's 2.5 hours. On days when I don't have my kids, I might get up as little as 30 minutes before the time I arrive at work. - Stephen Mack
Julian, seven hours? I guess those days you're not starting work at 9am! - Stephen Mack
Alarm clock to clock-in takes me about half an hour. There's a ten minute walk in there too. - Steel Penguin Slippy
It varies too much from day to day. - Friar Will
It was about 1.5 hours at each of the last 3 offices I was assigned. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Depends on whether the kidlet has school or not, and depends on whether I am working from home (4 days/week) or working in my office (1 day/week). On days when the kidlet doesn't have school and I'm working from home, I wake up about 15 minutes before I sit down at my desk; on days when the kidlet has school and I work from home, I wake up about 1.5 hours before I sit down at my desk;... more... - COMPLICATED MR.

Monday's I work 1-9, so it is 7 hours, Tue/Wed 3 hours, Thurs/Fri 2 hours. - Alan
2.5 hours. Video date, ~30 min for shower and lunch making, and ~30 minutes to walk to work. - Eivind
Less than an hour. I love my sleep. - Kristin
2 hours from wake to work arrival. Each morning breakfast is cooked and packed for 8:30 eating. Lunch also packed, litter pans cleaned, feral cats fed, shower. 20 minutes of this is driving time. I have a well oiled system with no room for deviation. - Janet from FFHound!
30 minutes. - Not Me
About two hours. That includes 70-90 of commute. - Eric - Watch Me Now
"Get up"? You mean from sleep? - Louis Gray
It's around 3 hours now. I'm up a little before 5am. Charlie gets his inhaler treatment, both cats get fed. I either have coffee or make my green smoothie and drink 1/2 of that (the other 1/2 goes into a jar for later). A few minutes of catching up on the internets, morning ablutions, dressing, packing the backpack, getting things off their respective chargers and then out the door on the bike to the ferry. By the time I'm off the ferry and walk to the office it's 8am. - vicster: full-bodied
About an hour, most mornings. - Jennifer Dittrich from FFHound!
Louis: Yes, sleep, for us mortals. In your case, whenever it is you emerge from your Dorian Gray Capsule, Mr. Gray. - Stephen Mack
3.5 hours - Meg VMeg
2.5 hours - Georgia
Two hours. - Steven Perez from Android
2 hours, little variation - Bruce Lewis
2 hours. Only about 15 min. of that is commute. - Laura Norvig
about 2hrs - Peter Dawson
2.5 hours, including a 50 min. commute. - Ken Morley
My schedule is almost exactly what Stephens is : Typically up at 6:45 for kids, arrive at work at 9:15. That includes ~30m of "downtime" due to difference in dropoff of 2nd grade and Pre-K. Next year might be better. :) - Steve and 4 other people
I love Royksopp … now I'm watching a bunch of their videos … wait, what was the question? - Amit Patel
Usually around three hours when I go into the office. 15 minutes when I telework. :) - Jenny H. from Android
30 minutes when i go into office 5 when telecommute - Steve C
3-5 minutes. Varies depending on whether I woke up naturally or if some husband caused noisy kitchen catastrophe woke me up. - April Russo
Two hours, three hours on days I bring Sophie to school first. - Stephan Planken
3-3.5 hours when commuting. Under an hour when WFH. - благодарю, вас так много
I just want to add, its a joy to know I'm not the only person in the world who uses the word "delta" in its algebraic sense in everyday speech. - Steel Penguin Slippy from Android
Glen Campbell
Heh. Local news station is showing a live shot of cars spun out on an overpass. A tow truck drives up slowly, stops on the opposite side of the road from the cars, then slides very gently horizontally down to crush the cars against the side rail.
Commentator apparently missed it entirely; never mentioned it. - Glen Campbell
Wow! - Janet from FFHound!
If they didn't need a tow before, they do now! That's how you make business. - Louis Gray
