When you see a 14 year old kid successfully create a Nuclear Fusion Reactor, invents $100 security detectors for US homeland security that usually costs $100,000, you immediately realize that you've never achieve anything close to this even at your current age. It is an overwhelming feeling of reverence and regret at the same time.
yeah but can them mofos take pictures like AJ BATAC???? HUH??? #IThinkNot - MoTO: Team Marina

There were some bugs in the "Twitter publishing" code that caused some entries to get published on Twitter when they should not, and others to not get published when they should. I've cleaned up the code to eliminate these problems, but it's possible some settings were lost. Please verify your settings at http://friendfeed.com/setting...
I apologize for any lost or unwanted tweets. Please let me know if you spot any other problems. - Paul Buchheit
Cheers for this Paul. How cool is it that one of the founders of FF still gets his hands dirty in the code. Once a coder, always a coder :-) - Keith Bennett from Nambu
Thanks Keith :) By the way, if none of your posts are making it through to twitter, it may be that you changed your password. To verify, simply click "Save changes" at http://friendfeed.com/setting... and we will check that your Twitter credentials are still good (and sign-out then back in to fix). - Paul Buchheit
Matthew, in general all the same settings that the old ui had are available on the new one (plus a few more), though they are now divided on to several different pages. You should be able to reach all of the the settings by clicking on the word "settings" below your name in the top-right part of the page (the dialog shows a few, and links to all the others). - Paul Buchheit
You can filter by service by searching for service:twitter (or whatever service you like), and of course that can be combined with other search operators as well. See http://friendfeed.com/search... for more. - Paul Buchheit
Thanks Paul, sounds like you pulled an all nighter to fix these. - Robert Scoble
Yeah, unfortunately the code had gotten rather involved since it was trying to support both the old ui and the new (the old ui worked on a per-service basis instead of letting you decide individually on each entry), and the logic sometimes became inconsistent. I simplified it quite a bit, so there should be less room for bugs now :) - Paul Buchheit
Thanks, Paul. :) - Josh Haley
Nice try, Matthew, I congratulate you on being awake, and carpe-diem'ing Paul here, but have to disappoint you - if FF wanted us to have favicons, they'd already issued us our favicons. Do you see any favicons that made the transition from earlier version. No? You think Paul nuked them by mistake... be my guest, and I'll be looking forward to the next couple of years' worth of your pleading for favicons when you could be learning to live both here and thereater without them. - ianf ⌘
I'm a bit confused about the "Post my FriendFeed entries on Twitter by default" and "FriendFeed (when there's no Cc box)" options. Are these exclusive? Does checking the first one mean all my FriendFeed posts will get posted to Twitter even if I uncheck the Cc box? - Tony Ruscoe
Paul, thank you thank thank you for the "Check CC Twitter box by default" option!!! That's one step closer to only needing Friendfeed. I'm almost ready to dump Google Reader AND Twitter now! - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Thanks Paul! - Edwin Khodabakchian
Tony, the "cc twitter by default" option sets whether then checkbox is checked or unchecked by default in the share box and bookmarklet. The other option ("when there's no cc box") applies mostly to the API and other off-site interfaces, such as email (mail share@friendfeed.com) and IM. For any given post, only one setting applies. - Paul Buchheit
I publish to Twitter by default but now link directly to the source. I figure that those finding outside of FF want to go to the source (while those reading on FF are already seeing the discussion). - Mike Reynolds
Hi Paul, about 15 mins ago I "shared" an item from FF here to "my feed" and "cc Twitter". But still not showing up on Twitter. Just thought I'd let you know. - Brian
Thanks Brian. It turns out there was a bug in the "Share" feature that sometimes caused us to sometimes not send the tweets (the new code errors on the side of not sending tweets). It's fixed now though. Please let me know if you spot any others. - Paul Buchheit
Paul, that did the trick! Thanks for looking into that. BTW, that was a quick fix! Just shared an item on FF and it pushed thru to Twitter instantly. - Brian
Hello Paul, when I try to publish just my google talk status to twitter and have "Link to source site instead of FriendFeed conversation" selected, it doesn't send the tweet. I'm not sure if this is because twitter seems to be having difficulty right now or if it's the lack of a source link because it's a google talk status? - ehaab
ehaab, publishing to Twitter was broken this morning, so no updates went out. It should work fine now however, including publishing updates from Google Talk. Sorry about that. - Paul Buchheit
thanks! it was driving me batty trying to figure out why it wasn't taking. - ehaab
I think it's still broken. I just posted via the Bookmarklet and CC'd twitter... no go. EDIT: my latest one just posted, must be intermittent. - Daniel Sims
Hi Paul, Mine is still not working. I have also checked the setting page. - zahedzadeh

it is May 2012, 3 years passed, things are broken, Twitter makes what it promises, Friendfeed fix at top does... nothing. After oAuth decoupling and re-coupling again, fresh app access appears on Twitter control side but Friendfeed does not follow.. #PRKL - непростые коротышки
Hi Paul, apparently there's no new certificate available for FF. Italian and Turkish users are panicking, this might be a sign that the end of FF is approaching. Can you reassure us? - mentegatto

The Dramatic Moment When a Woman Pulled Over to Give Her Nephew CPR - ABC News
"As her nephew started turning blue, Pamela Rauseo panicked. She didn’t want anything bad to happen to 5-month-old Sebastian de la Cruz, who was born premature and with respiratory issues. So Rauseo stopped her SUV along Miami’s Dolphin Expressway Thursday and screamed for help. She started giving the baby CPR." - AJ Batac from Bookmarklet

Bacteria Live At 33,000 Feet
"Earth's upper atmosphere—below freezing, nearly without oxygen, flooded by UV radiation—is no place to live. But last winter, scientists from the Georgia Institute of Technology discovered that billions of bacteria actually thrive up there. Expecting only a smattering of microorganisms, the researchers flew six miles above Earth's surface in a NASA jet plane. There, they pumped outside air through a filter to collect particles. Back on the ground, they tallied the organisms, and the count was staggering: 20 percent of what they had assumed to be just dust or other particles was alive. Earth, it seems, is surrounded by a bubble of bacteria." - AJ Batac from Bookmarklet

I may just crop that and post all around my own yard. - Josh Haley
I would have written "Mow your grass, maybe?" - AJ Batac
Gave me an idea to post on my neighbor's... Thanks Micah! - AJ Batac
I actually like the grass in that photo! What's it got to do with anyone else if you mow or don't mow? As long as invasive weeds are kept in check, people shouldn't tell others how to maintain their gardens. - Halil

"U.S. Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy tweeted that she was deeply concerned by the inhumanity of dolphin fishing in Japan. Here, fishermen net dolphins at a cove in Taiji, Japan, on Jan. 20." - AJ Batac from Bookmarklet
Ok this is pretty inhumane.. but lets not play double standards here. In america its the horse slaughter, in Canada its the seal hunting etc. What about the north america hunitng for deer ? six million deer killed by hunters every year.. I think each society /country has their own issue and I think the media needs to start awareness about what happens in their own countries first, rather then being polarized on what happens elsewhere. In short, lets clean up our shit first before we point fingers elsewhere - Peter Dawson

Mexican Vigilantes Battle Drug Cartel [PHOTOS]

"Mexico has long suffered blistering violence and crime at the hands of its homegrown drug cartels. Though the Mexican government has waged war on the cartels, the effort has struggled to go anywhere. More than 90,000 people have died in the ongoing conflict. Fed up with a corrupt police force that is often in bed with the cartels and a military that has to this point been ineffective,  some Mexicans have taken it upon themselves to fight the cartels and protect their families — with an incredible conflict happening this week in the city of Paracuaro." - AJ Batac from Bookmarklet
