The Other Yvonne
My SIL has FINALLY made it to the 2nd trimester with a pregnancy (her 6th one). She's at around 14 weeks now and just found out there's a 93% chance the baby has Downs. While it's not the end of the world, I just wish she could catch a break. *sigh
I'm sorry for her -- how does she feel about it? - Stephen Mack
Oh man. I'll hold out hope for that 7% and that she has an otherwise healthy baby. - Half Pint
Jury's still out. She's obviously upset by the news, but it's still sinking in. - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
If she has CVS, I would be concerned. Typically, the quad screen is done between weeks 15 and 20 of pregnancy — the second trimester. If she had one done at 14 weeks I would be suspicious of the results. - Janet
She goes back tomorrow to see if it was a false positive. IMO while I'm sure the news was a shock, if I'd had so many miscarriages, having a baby with Down syndrome wouldn't stop me from finally being a mom. - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
:( I really pray it was a false positive. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Oh jeez. That's rough. I really hope she'll get different results on the next test. - Jenny H. from Android
Results are back. It wasn't a false positive. My heart aches for them and the choice they now have to make. =( - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
Mine too. They will be in my prayers. - laura x from iPhone
Such a tough situation for them. :( - Anne Bouey
I am so very sorry. - Janet
Oh my goodness. - YvonneM
Lots and lots of love for your family xx - Melly
I have an uncle with a brain injury that he received as a child, so I grew up with a dramatically disabled family member. I know what the challenges are in that, but also the joys and dignities. And so this was my greatest fear when I was pregnant. My heart goes out to you all -- it's not simple. - Jenica
The Other Yvonne
Welp! Cat's out of the bag! John has accepted a job offer in CT. He starts at the end of the month and I'll be headed back east at the end of the school year. What an adventure we're in for!
Good luck! - Spidra Webster
I'm very happy for you guys and your new adventures but I'm going to be sad you're not closer. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Oh wow! Congratulations! We now have how many months to plan a Bay area/NorCal FF gathering? - Corinne L
Congrats to John, but I am still in denial that you guys are moving! - Stephen Mack
How wonderful for you! :) For us, not so much. :( - Anne Bouey
Thanks guys! 5 months to go. We're not selling the house so we can afford to move back. =) Stephen- I'm in denial, too! - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
I'm happy for John and your family, but sad for our local loss. - Half Pint
Congrats! Happy for you, sad for us! - Mary Carmen
Mary - ferry from Port Jeff to Bridgeport! - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
Wow, that's exciting news! I hope it's a good move for you guys! - Jenny H. from Android
What a big change! - Lnorigb
I grew up in NJ so it's not TOO big a change for me, although I don't know much about CT. My whole family is on the east coast so it will be nice to grow those relationships for me and my kids. - The Other Yvonne
Yeah for the adventure and the East Coast just got a touch more class! - Janet from BuddyFeed
You're too kind! - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!

My 86-year old MIL has been staying here for the last week. It's just one more thing that's driving me nuts right now. It's amazing how much the energy at home can change with an extra body in it.
How much longer is her visit? Remember to breathe! - Anne Bouey
She's actually leaving at this exact moment for her around the world cruise!!! - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!

"I cannot help thinking that there are far too many very bloody, extremely wealthy criminals at large in the world, whose actions are rarely reported on, unless marital or extra-marital." ~Victor Grossman
"Oh, what character flaw impels me to always swim against the current? Even now, with so many people stricken and determined to oppose murderous Islamists and defend freedom of a critical press, why am I troubled by so many doubts? Must sharp, iconoclastic satire, bravely spiting the powers-that-be with sharp pens and sharp words, purposely insult deeply-felt religious beliefs? A convinced atheist all my life, I have no sympathy whatsoever for religious fanatics, be they Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Hindu, or Buddhist. Some of Charlie's foes were my foes; I enjoy attacks on fanatics, whether in Tehran, Riyadh, West Jerusalem, or West Virginia. For centuries they have caused far too much misery in our world. But that bothersome little voice whispers that, as a journalist, I might not have caricatured Christians while they faced lions in Rome's old Coliseum, or even the most backward-looking Jewish daveners during Hitler's reign. Attacking ISIS is good. But lampooning the beliefs of so... more... - Eivind

Ghosts Come Free With Purchase Of This Medieval Castle
"If you have a spare $429,000, a love of history, a burning desire to live in the northernmost region of England, and don't mind sharing your abode with a ghostly woman (and, according to some reports, a phantom hound), step right this way." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"According to the real estate broker's website, Blenkinsopp Castle dates from the 13th century with a Pele tower which was later incorporated into a 19th century mansion. During the 20th century the manor house was used as a hotel but was severely damaged by fire in 1954. The castle ruins still stand with a wing currently being occupied as an imposing family home. The house is Grade II... more... - Jessie
"The Daily Mail explains who's haunting the thing. It's quite the lurid tale: The castle is thought to have been built in 1339, and historical documents show that Thomas de Blecansopp was given a licence to crenellate, or fortify, the property in 1340. One of the family's medieval patriots, Bryan de Blenkinsopp, who held the castle some 600 years ago, was said to have a lust for wealth,... more... - Jessie

And the men’s urinals here have a silhouette of a fly in them. What’s that all about? Are they targets?
Yes, actually. It's been determined that men are not as messy when they have a target. http://www.npr.org/templat... ""Apparently," Berenbaum says, in males, "there is a deep-seated instinct to aim at targets," and having a fly to aim at reduces what she politely calls "human spillage." When flies were introduced at Schiphol Airport, spillage rates dropped 80 percent," - bentley
Interesting... First time I've seen them. - rönin from FFHound!
Same theory applied to male potty-training. :) - Anne Bouey
First time I heard about this was when I was in Portland at a conference in October. It was mentioned during a presentation on UX and UI design, and then, shortly after the presentation, I found that the bathrooms in the conference center had them. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

In a first, the Golden Gate Bridge will close for the weekend - LA Times
"The bridge will be closed for 52 hours from 12:01 a.m. Saturday to Monday morning while crews install a new, movable median along the bridge. The barriers allow new, huge "zipper trucks" to change the number of northbound and southbound lanes with traffic flow – a safer alternative to having a person hang outside a truck picking up and dropping off orange pylons, which was the old method." - Steve C, Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Police: Florida man attempted to commit a burglary while carrying his 5-month-old son | Fox News - http://www.foxnews.com/us...
"Police say a Florida man carrying his 5-month-old son acted as a lookout while his friend tried to break into a house, then threatened the owner of the home with a knife. St. Petersburg Police said in a news release that a homeowner found 22-year-old Corey Mathews outside his home Monday, holding a baby in a car carrier. Police say that when Mathews spotted the homeowner, he alerted another suspect attempting to break into the home. The other suspect fled, and the homeowner called 911 as he followed Mathews. Mathews then pulled out a knife and threatened to kill the man if he kept following him. Mathews was held Tuesday on $15,000 bond on burglary and other charges. Pinellas County jail records didn't show whether he had an attorney. Police say Mathews' mother took custody of the baby." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

The wording did make me think the baby was acting as the lookout. Which made me think of the tiny baby in a burglar costume from a cheesy TV show. And I giggled. A lot. - Yolanda

Scotland’s national instrument is in danger of extinction, according to bagpipe enthusiasts, who are campaigning for more tuition in state schools. Organisers of the Scottish Schools Pipe Band Championships are looking to turn the decline around by hosting a unique competition aimed at encouraging newcomers. - Halil from Bookmarklet
The contest has the backing of Craig Munro, of the hugely successful Red Hot Chilli Pipers. He said education bosses needed to realise it was possible to build a fulfilling career from the bagpipes. “It is clear that several schools are trying to get school pipe bands up and running but it’s becoming increasingly difficult to get the piping and drumming onto the curriculum,” he added. “If schools can offer students the likes of the recorder to learn music, then why not the bagpipes?” - Halil
I'm surprised to hear this, frankly. I understood that more people are playing the pipes than ever before. Lord knows it's easier to get started than ever before... a lot of the technical limitations have been overcome or minimized. - Brent Schaus
:( Hope it's not true. - Anne Bouey
I think they've just gotten too used to people. I've come across bagpipes in both bars and crowded town squares in later years, and naturally no one wants bagpipes that close. - Eivind
I agree with Eivind, people need to remember that bagpipes are wild animals, not pets. - Greg GuitarBuster
If not it will certainly go the way of the oboe. - Eivind
May you be visited by the ghost of Yusef Lateef https://www.youtube.com/watch... - Greg GuitarBuster

The creepy but definitive list of FriendFeed employees and where they work now. UPDATE: As of October 2, 2012, *three* still work at Facebook. Still true as of November 20, 2013.

Show all
With Paul's departure from Facebook today (November 12, 2010), I've heard several FFers talk about who's still at Facebook. I've seen various different numbers, none of which I think are accurate. This is my attempt to be more accurate. Information comes from publicly available sources where available. I drew on the list of FF employees from http://friendfeed.com/about... and http://blog.friendfeed.com/. - Stephen Mack
Ana Yang http://friendfeed.com/ana: Chief Miscellaneous Officer at Quip, per https://quip.com/about/ and had left Facebook around September 2012 (see Tudor B.'s comment from 9/20/2012 below). Formerly Places Product Manager at Facebook (see http://www.guardian.co.uk/technol...). - Stephen Mack

Overall status as of November 2010: Of the 14 people who were ever FriendFeed employees, 8 are still at Facebook (Ana Y., Ben G., Bret T., Casey M., Dan H., Jim N., Sanjeev S., and Tudor B), 5 have departed from Facebook (Ben D., Gary B., Kevin F., Paul B., Ross M.), and 1 is unknown (Goutham P.). - Stephen Mack
I will update the above if I hear news. - Stephen Mack
Technically my first day at Mozilla isn't until Monday. :-) - Kevin Fox
I will also remove this if any FF employees think it's too creepy. :) - Stephen Mack

You are both thorough and scary :) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
KLevin, tehcnically, this is your last day here and your not part of the FF team ! - Peter Dawson
Me too, Geoff. - Kevin Fox
Thanks Rochelle, updated! Kevin F., edited now, thanks. :) - Stephen Mack
Peter, what? Today is my last day where? And I left Facebook (and the FF team) back in May. - Kevin Fox
Of those still left at FB, I only see Tudor and Ben who are still active here and have contributed to FF fixes since the buyout. - Rodfather
Kevin mea culpa .. now i remember you want on a summer sabbatical ! - Peter Dawson
No worries. :-) - Kevin Fox
Rodfather, I'm not active here? - Kevin Fox

OK, took some editing but I think the above is accurate. If anyone knows where Ross M. or Goutham P. are now, please let me know! - Stephen Mack
Many thanks to people who provided info, especially Rochelle. - Stephen Mack
Rachel: That's definitely an awesome pic. I had a hard time choosing, you guys had a lot of great events. - Stephen Mack
Wow that is a great list I should probably try an add a few people. FriendFeed very good micro blogging, thanks. - Robert Bridge
Thanks Robert! Updated Ross's employer with information Anne B. found on his Facebook page. - Stephen Mack
He made them an offer that they could eventually refuse? - Stephen Mack
*snicker* - Big Joe Silence
Bump in honor of today's FB IPO. Time to do more creepy digging to see what's up with the FF team! - Stephen Mack
Updated Gary's entry. - Stephen Mack
Updated Jim's entry. He's apparently left Facebook. (I think I remember him confirming this when I had lunch with him last month!) - Stephen Mack
Updated Kevin's entry. - Stephen Mack
Overall status as of May 2012: Of the 14 people who were ever FriendFeed employees, 7 are still at Facebook (Ana Y., Ben G., Bret T., Casey M., Dan H., Sanjeev S., and Tudor B), 6 have departed from Facebook (Ben D., Gary B., Jim N., Kevin F., Paul B., Ross M.), and 1 is unknown (Goutham P.). - Stephen Mack
Stephen, Goutham worked at RockYou for a bit in 2010 and now works for Google. Also, how have I not seen this thread before?! I remember you taking that picture at Kitchen Table - fun times :) - Ross Miller
now this is creepy.. some1 is stalking all the former employees of FF :)- - Peter Dawson
Peter, I wonder who? Ross, thanks! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Jim is now at AeroFS. - Anne Bouey
Stephen, also Goutham was a summer intern the year before the Facebook buy. He did not transfer to Facebook. Ross did you transfer to Facebook, I can't remember. - Rachel Lea Fox
oh and I think Ben D. has left AOL. But I can't confirm that, I just seem to remember something about that. *shrug* - Rachel Lea Fox
Anne, AeroFS looks cool! Congrats Jim!! - Rachel Lea Fox
Ben Darnell is at Dropbox. - Tudor Bosman
Also, Dan Hsiao is no longer at Facebook (no more details). - Tudor Bosman
Goutham Patnaik is at Google. - Tudor Bosman
And yes, both Ross and Goutham were interns and were never Facebook employees after the acquisition. - Tudor Bosman
Thanks Tudor! Updated above. - Stephen Mack
Overall status as of May 22, 2012: Of the 12 people who were ever FriendFeed employees plus 2 interns, 6 are still at Facebook (Ana Y., Ben G., Bret T., Casey M., Sanjeev S., and Tudor B), 6 have departed from Facebook (Ben D., Dan H., Gary B., Jim N., Kevin F., Paul B.), and 2 were interns who never went to Facebook (Ross M., Goutham P.). - Stephen Mack
And now there are five. - Mary B: #TeamMonique
Indeed. I'll update when I get back from vacation -- by then we should know more about Bret's new venture. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Bump. - NOT THE CRICKET
Oops, I see I never updated this. Stand by. - Stephen Mack
Bret's entry updated. - Stephen Mack
Overall status, as of June 15, 2012 (updated on September 13, 2012): There are 12 people who were ever FriendFeed employees. (In addition, there were 2 interns (Ross M., Goutham P.) who never went to Facebook, per Tudor B., above.) So, of the 12 official FriendFeed employees: Currently, 5 of 12 are still at Facebook (Ana Y., Ben G., Casey M., Sanjeev S., and Tudor B), and 7 of 12 have departed from Facebook (Ben D., Bret T., Dan H., Gary B., Jim N., Kevin F., Paul B.). - Stephen Mack
So basically we're gradually losing FF advocates within the mothership. :-( - DB, Lil LB's Dad
So clearly we need to either recruit current FB'ers to start using FF or get FF users employed FB, or both. - Andrew C (✔)
13 Sep 2012: what was the cause of the outage? But perhaps more importantly, *who* kindly fixed it (and from where) ? [If FB open sources FF, who would be willingly to maintain it?] - Adriano
And whoever it was, I'd happily buy them a nice dinner. - Meg VMeg
Per Tudor (in this thread http://friendfeed.com/friendf...) it was Sanjeev who saved us. THANK YOU SANJEEV! - Stephen Mack
SANJEEV! - Josh Haley
I think Sanjeev is most eligible for a FF Rent Party of sorts. More of a FF Thank You party. - Janet
bump just to immortalise this pix and the start-up crew ! - Peter Dawson
Ana left Facebook, no more details. - Tudor Bosman
Thanks Tudor -- I updated her entry. Overall status, as of September 20, 2012): There are 12 people who were ever FriendFeed employees. (In addition, there were 2 interns (Ross M., Goutham P.) who never went to Facebook, per Tudor B., above.) So, of the 12 official FriendFeed employees: Currently, 4 of 12 are still at Facebook (Ben G., Casey M., Sanjeev S., and Tudor B), and 8 of 12 have departed from Facebook (Ana Y., Ben D., Bret T., Dan H., Gary B., Jim N., Kevin F., Paul B.). - Stephen Mack
Thanks Tudor and Stephen for the update. - Meg VMeg
Casey left Facebook as well (which, as he's Ana's husband, is no big surprise :) ). No more details. - Tudor Bosman
Ah, so three now. Thanks Tudor. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Not sure how I missed Tudor's update back on October 2, but I have now updated Casey's entry. - Stephen Mack
Overall status, as of October 2, 2012: There are 12 people who were ever FriendFeed employees. In addition, there were 2 interns (Ross M. and Goutham P.) who never went to Facebook, per Tudor B., above. So, of the 12 official FriendFeed employees: Currently, 3 of 12 are still at Facebook (Ben G., Sanjeev S., and Tudor B), and 9 of 12 have departed from Facebook (Ana Y., Ben D., Casey M., Bret T., Dan H., Gary B., Jim N., Kevin F., and Paul B.). - Stephen Mack
An update of sorts, which I guess is in and of itself creepy. I was reading a recent piece on Google Reader, and I was struck by the fact that Darnell jumped from Google Reader to FriendFeed (there are similarities between the two orphaned applications, when you think about it). Then I saw that Darnell made his move right before the Facebook acquisition. After reading subsequent... more... - John E. Bredehoft
Bump. Updated a few folks above to show they're at Quip. I think it's still the case that 3 of the 12 are at Facebook (Ben, Sanjeev, Tudor). - Stephen Mack
Thanks for the update Stephen! - Zu from AOD
Bump! I think the count is still three. - Stephen Mack from iPhone

I went to the Foster's Farm Bowl on Tuesday as my yearly attempt at being a sports photographer: https://www.flickr.com/photos...
This is the game I was hoping to setup a camera to shoot a time-lapse panorama of the whole stadium, but it didn't end up happening. Maybe next year. - Brian Johns

I cried most of the day. Didn't get out of bed much. Only ate once. Did no packing. Ignored the poor dogs outside my bedroom door. Would have ignored Jayden if he'd let me. I hate my life. It's too difficult. Painful. Sad. There's too much struggle and I can't see me ever having comfort or real happiness. I want to give up.
I know I can't but I want to. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

It's payday, so I have to scramble around paying bills and running errands. No time to wallow in my depression. After I call about a listing I saw, there may be another house to look at, too. Today may not be better, but it'll be busier, and that'll do for now. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Hoping you can find some piece of mind soon. - Eric - Let Me Know
