FTC sues online dating site for faking profiles -
FTC sues online dating site for faking profiles
"The Federal Trade Commission filed its first lawsuit against an online dating site on Wednesday. It accuses a British company, JDI Dating, with using fake messages and computer-generated profiles to trick people into upgrading to paid memberships. JDI Dating operates 18 dating websites, including, and People who created their free profiles would receive messages that appeared to be from members who lived nearby and wanted to meet. According to the FTC's complaint, these messages were almost always bogus. The only way users could respond to that email was to sign-up for a paid membership of $10 to $30 a month." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
WORLD SERIES GAME 6: Given that the Royals know Peavy so well and have his number, it would really throw them to put in Lincecum and back him up with Petit.
That would be a gutsy move by Bochy. I wonder how much his previous relationship with Peavy influences him. - Heisenberg
There's only one pitcher on the Giants current roster that has thrown a no-hitter. Twice in fact. Once this year. - Heisenberg
I guess I want Timmy because he's done so well in past World Series. The best argument is for Petit, but that makes the bullpen weaker. - Heisenberg
Not sure Timmy's back is up for pitching at all. - Steve C Team Marina
Don't you want to see a game seven though ? - Eric Logan
No, not really. :) - Heisenberg
I guess the Disney ending would be MadBum winning game 7. That would put him up there as one of the greatest pitchers of all time. - Heisenberg
Disney endings are overrated. :) - Eric Logan from FFHound!
Disney still lives. - Heisenberg
Apparently when the starter does not go 5 innings, the scorer has discretion about who to award the win to, so that's how MadBum got the official win tonight. (I read that on the Internet, so it may or may not be true.) - Brian Johns
I think they changed it to a save. - Heisenberg
Yes, they did. Here's a good article about the change: - Brian Johns

Wait, are those RAIN clouds?
It's supposed to rain here in Los Angeles tomorrow. We'll see. - Steve C Team Marina
nope, they are candy clouds! candy corn clouds! - Sir Shuping is just sir
We've been getting 90% chance of rain on Friday throughout the week's forecasts (except one day when it went to 100%). So those clouds around here ( a few hundred miles north of LA) sure better be rain clouds--ideally carrying a lot of snow for the Sierras. - Walt Crawford
No rain in the forecast here - just a few clouds, with wind. Probably only gusting when I'm trying to serve. - Mary B: #TeamMonique
It's quite humid here in Sac. Heavy rains predicted for tomorrow & Saturday. I say BRING IT ON. - Corinne L

Dear future in law, you might want to warn the future bride her future husband is a big ol' open mouth kisser. Lots of tongue. Even more drool. It's shocking not to get a kiss without coming away with your face dripping. And if your face isn't dripping your arm probably is because he missed.

You think I can request another kind? The kids will take amoxicillian like it's candy even without flavor but this stuff is just horrid.
Does your drugstore have the option to add flavors? Some do. - bentley

Typo. I meant even *with* flavor. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Yes you can request another kind. Or you can request flavor from a non-chain pharmacy. - Steve C Team Marina

Last night our youngest told us she had learned about words that sound like what they describe: onomatopoeia. I was rather surprised, since she is just 6 and I didn't learn that concept or word until I was nearly 12.
My wife, not having English as her first language, initially thought she'd made this up. :p - Big Joe Silence from Android
I always spelled it like this: Onomatopoeia - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
*writes this down* - Big Joe Silence
Too bad it's not easier to spell. It's a cool word though! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
When your wife sees the word spelled out she'll know for sure that you made it up. :-) - bentley
i can claim that it's some obscure Saxon curse word. - Big Joe Silence
The grand daddy of all that is discussed here: - Iain Baker
"Quadrupedante putrem sonitu quatit ungula campum or “The horses’ hooves with four-fold beat did shake the crumbling plain.” Now, say the Latin out loud (Latin is kind of like Spanish, you pronounce it how it’s spelled… so just sound it out… Oh, and there’s a hard G in “ungula”). Repeat it a couple of times until you can say it well and at an even pace. Do you hear them? Say it in a James Earl Jones voice. Hear them now? It’s the horses hooves on the plain!" - Iain Baker
That's perfect, Iain! - Anne Bouey
Iain wins! - Big Joe Silence

Boston Bruins bring 'Frozen' to sick kids -
"The Boston Bruins put down their hockey sticks on Monday and got decked out "Frozen"-style for a good cause. Bruins defenseman Dougie Hamilton would never have been Disney's first choice for Elsa, the cartoon star of the hit "Frozen" movie. But he and forward Matt Fraser (now known as Elsa's sister, Anna) brought a bit of Halloween fun to the sick children at Boston Children's Hospital. Rounding out the cast were Bruins defenseman Kevan Miller (Kristoff), forward Seth Griffith (Hans), defenseman Matt Bartkowski (Sven) and defenseman Torey Krug (Olaf). Dougie Hamilton\'s Elsa versus the real thing? Dougie Hamilton's Elsa versus the real thing? "We're all fans of it. I've seen the movie, and I'm a fan so I'm not going to lie about that," Hamilton said on the team's blog.

"- In a blog post late Wednesday, actress and avid gamer Felicia Day weighed in on the roiling #Gamergate controversy, saying that by doing so she feared retribution from someone who might leak personal details about her online.""As it turns out, Day's concerns were justified. Within an hour, an anonymous commenter had posted her real-world address and personal email. The practice, called "doxxing," involves publishing someone's vulnerable personal information online as a form of punishment." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

I'm freaking out about being a 1-car family right now. The minivan finally gave out. We can't buy another until our mortgage refinance goes through. Until then, all of the commitments for carpooling to school and driving for field trips are cancelled. =(
*hugs* I can totally understand your frustration. Any eta on when the refi will be done? - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
That's the other thing... I can't get an answer from our mortgage broker. Waaaaaaa! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
What about a cheap rental for a week or two? - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
What about stealing one you can look up how to hot wire most vehicles online. Or so I've heard. - Steve C Team Marina
Lol! I think the rental is the way to go. =) - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Over here, a lot of people I know use car-hire sites like Zipcar - is that sort of thing an option? - Iain Baker
I could check into using ZipCar, but I have carseats to deal with so I'm not sure how convenient that would be. I can rent a full-size car for about $180/week. That should get us over the hump, but it's not as ideal as having a minivan. - Yvonne Renee

Century-old notebook from Antarctic expedition found -
"Explorer Robert Falcon Scott died in 1912 while crossing Antarctica, but his story lives on in artifacts that continue to be discovered on the frozen continent at the bottom of the world. The most recent find: a century-old photographer's notebook in the ice at one of Scott's expedition bases in Antarctica. The notebook belonged to George Murray Levick, a surgeon and photographer who was part of Scott's 1910-13 expedition. It contains pencil notes about photos he took in 1911 at Cape Adare." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

I saw that this morning I might get it though I have no idea how it works. - Steve C Team Marina
I'm not sure how it works either, but I pre-ordered one. Estimated delivery, Dec 3rd. - Greg GuitarBuster
We don't really need this and don't have a TV. Would it work with a projector? There's an HDMI output on something. I plug the computer into that to watch junk. - Anika
Anika, maybe. In your setup, The Stick would be replacing your computer. Are you currently streaming from your computer hard drive or do you have wireless internet. Your projector would display the video signal, but does your projector support HD? Also, The Stick doesn't have speakers, it's using the speakers on the TV. - Greg GuitarBuster
I'm thinking this is just like the Chrome Cast but it seems to come with a remote when in the Chrome Cast the device you're streaming *from* is the remote. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
It looks like the Fire TV Stick works with amazon tablets only when you want to show a stream from your device to the stick: "Fling movies and TV shows from your phone or tablet—Fling movies and TV shows from your Fire tablet or Fire phone to Fire TV Stick, turning your TV into the primary screen and freeing up your phone or tablet to provide playback controls, a customized display for... more... - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
Also this: "Mirror your phone or tablet display—Wirelessly mirror your tablet display to your Fire TV Stick from Fire tablets, Fire phone, and Miracast-enabled phones or tablets including devices from Motorola, Samsung, LG, and Google without any additional apps or software." - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
I will say it's nice that the stick doesn't need a separate power cord. But I don't like that I can't use Chrome Cast on it. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
The media unit is connected to the projector (this is the one we have: When I plug my laptop in it via the HDMI port, it's usually to play a disk or stream from online sites that lack apps on my blu-ray player or Xbox. Our sound system is connected to the media box... more... - Anika
Does the mirroring thing mean that if I'm watching Dramafever or FUNimation on my tablet or phone, I can have that play through the stick? - Anika
Yes but it mirrors using 'mirrorcast' so the phone has to be able to do that first. The stick should work with the HDMI port directly on your projector. :) - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
I bought one. Figured I shouldn't pass it up at $20. Even if it doesn't work with the projector, one day I may be able to afford a TV. - Anika
Let me know if it works out! I'm curious. :) - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
