If I may toot my own horn for a moment, I'm a bit over the moon about being invited to speak about the Canadian Government's War on Science at the York U Science & Technology Studies Seminar Series in October.
awesome, John!! - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
The page for the series is here: It's pretty serious stuff. - John Dupuis

that is pretty cool - Steve C
Thanks! Of course, the easy part of agreeing to do the talk. The hard part comes in October when I'm all, "Yikes, now I actually have to do the damn thing!" - John Dupuis

"Infographic: 75% of Americans have used their phone in the bathroom." And 25% of Americans are lying.

Picking up my project to build my own home router/firewall/IPS completely from source code (with some custom scripting as well). Let's see if I can remember how to build this toolchain.
Dang you go boy - Steve C
Well... I am heavily following Linux From Scratch to build the toolchain. From there, I will more or less veer off on my own. - Julian
The best way to know that a toolchain works is to build a toolchain out of it. I am building a toolchain today using a toolchain that was built using another toolchain. - Julian
I decided to start it over today. - Julian

My coworker offered Excedrin so I took his last one + two Advils. I'm also downing more coffee so let's see how all that works out. ⏩😩⏪
get some food in you too if possible so you don't have a tummy ache on top of the migraine - Steve C
And drink lots of water so you stay hydrated. - vicster: full-bodied
I had a good breakfast this morning. I did get water too in a thing I usually fill throughout the day. Thanks, y'all! *hugs* - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart

Drivers cited for not yielding to officer in traffic cone costume - LA Times
"California drivers have seen the signs before: "Slow for the cone." But for Moreno Valley motorists, the giant orange cone traversing the crosswalk was supposed to mean "stop." The undercover officer wearing the traffic cone costume on Wednesday walked along a crosswalk at Eucalyptus Avenue and Running Deer Road as part of a pedestrian right-of-way sting, according to Riverside County Sheriff's Sgt. Bill Guimont. But even with the costume, some motorists who were cited told authorities "they never saw the traffic cone in the crosswalk," he said in a statement." - Steve C from Bookmarklet
Drivers in MV don't stop for other drivers. Driving down Redlands Blvd. or Perris Blvd. people coming out of the side streets will run a stop sign and just turn in front of you. It's almost as bad as driving San Francisco. - Anika

Maybe I'm just more sensitized by recent events, but I've started noticing… do cops always just stare hard at all people when they make eye contact, or is that just for me?
What does a soft stare look like? - Todd Hoff
You run your tongue slowly over your lips and toss your hair back Todd. ^ - Steve C
So it's something you do before you eat? - Todd Hoff
Yeah, I'm pretty sure the cop wasn't flirting with me. - Victor Ganata
Then I would say to the prey the stare of the predator is always hard. - Todd Hoff
But has anyone else noticed this? Maybe I just need to stop making eye contact with cops. But I feel like that would make me seem suspicious. - Victor Ganata
Sunglasses? - Todd Hoff
The cops in my town always look tired and bored. - Big Joe Silence from Android
Nope, they stare and when you don't drop your gaze, they come after you. - Anika

I didn't think it was possible but everyone can see how I feel: crushed by a headache that's fixing to be a migraine. Ugh.

Commission approves closing La Jolla beach for seals' pupping season - LA Times
"he California Coastal Commission voted Thursday to approve a controversial plan by the San Diego City Council to close one of the city's most popular beaches during the annual five-month pupping season of harbor seals. The ban, to stretch each season from Dec. 15 to May 15, will prohibit people from using the Children's Pool beach in La Jolla, a small, horseshoe-shaped beach created by a nearby breakwater." - Steve C from Bookmarklet

"San Francisco said goodbye Thursday to Candlestick Park -- the stadium where the city's beloved Giants and 49ers celebrated some of their greatest triumphs. The storied venue shut down after an evening concert by former Beatle Paul McCartney that finished about midnight. It will then be demolished to make way for a housing, retail and entertainment development." - Steve C from Bookmarklet

"An Arizona high school teacher who feared she was too inebriated to drive took a cab to work, then continued drinking throughout the day until students alerted administrators that she was cursing and yelling at them, authorities said Thursday." - Steve C from Bookmarklet
The school's principal and a sheriff's deputy met with Jardine. According to the deputy, Jardine initially denied being intoxicated. She later admitted that she had been drinking the night before, that morning and during lunch in her classroom. The math teacher had a blood-alcohol level of 0.205 percent, which is 2 1/2 times the legal limit for drivers. A school security officer found a... more... - Steve C

Spike heels get workers' comp recipient in trouble - LA Times
"The spike heels gave her away. State insurance investigators last week busted Shawna Lynn Palmer, 22, of Riverside on suspicion of workers' compensation insurance fraud after they saw her wearing stiletto shoes in a video of a recent Long Beach Grand Prix beauty contest. At the time, Palmer, a supermarket clerk, was receiving medical care and benefits for a March 10 workplace injury claim she reported to supervisors. lRelated With workers' comp claim, sham bank-heist figure compounds the nerve Local With workers' comp claim, sham bank-heist figure compounds the nerve See all related 8 The state Department of Insurance gave this account: Palmer reported that she fractured a toe on her left foot and could not put weight on her foot, move it or even wear a shoe." - Steve C from Bookmarklet

'Batman v Superman': Meet your new Aquaman -
"The speculation appears to be over about yet another costumed hero set to join Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and the rest in 2016's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." Not only will Gal Gadot play Wonder Woman and Ray Fisher portray Cyborg, but now Jason Momoa ("Game of Thrones," "Conan the Barbarian") has been cast to play that crusader of the seas, Aquaman, according to Variety. Warner Bros. Pictures is so confident that Aquaman will be a hit with audiences that they've already got an "Aquaman" movie in the works, Variety also reports. In an unusual move, two writers -- Kurt Johnstad and Will Beall -- will each try their hand at separate "Aquaman" scripts. The "Aquaman" movie is undoubtedly one of the nine movies based on DC Comics characters that Warner Bros. plans to release through 2020. (DC and Warner Bros. Pictures are owned by Time Warner, which owns CNN.)" - Steve C from Bookmarklet
I'm okay with this. I was actually talking about how horrible Aquaman is as a character and how hard it would to give him a film, the other day. I think they could work it out. (I still don't feel like I'd want to watch an Aquaman movie, because it still feels stupid.) I'd actually prefer Plastic Man. - NOT THE CRICKET
Plastic man too close to the Incredibles? - Steve C
The movie will drown at the box office, but I bet he stays above water. - Todd Hoff

Glorious birds: The original miracle of flight -
"Who among us hasn't fantasized about flying like a bird? We've created hot air balloons, planes and spacecraft to replicate what birds can already do naturally. CNN recently invited readers to share their best photos of birds in action. The National Audubon Society helped identify the bird species in the above gallery. "Their ability to fly is a work of art in itself," said birdwatcher Michele Hancock, who is always on the lookout for unusual avian species to photograph." - Steve C from Bookmarklet
There are some marvelous photos in that gallery. - John (bird whisperer)

Pilot's false arm falls off as he lands Flybe plane - -
Pilot's false arm falls off as he lands Flybe plane -
"It's probably one of the more unusual incidents air traffic investigators have looked into, but the good news is that when a pilot's prosthetic arm fell off during landing, no one got hurt. The 46-year-old pilot lost control in dark and windy conditions while bringing a Flybe airline turboprop plane with 47 passengers into Belfast City Airport in Northern Ireland. A report released Thursday by Britain's Air Accident Investigation Branch said the unnamed pilot's false limb became detached as he performed a "flare manoeuver" in which the nose of the plane is raised. The pilot managed to regain control and make a "heavy landing," it said. The February 12 incident resulted in no injuries among the passengers or four crew, but triggered an investigation. "As he made the flare manoeuvre ... his prosthetic limb became detached from the yoke clamp, depriving him of control of the aircraft," the report said." - Steve C from Bookmarklet

Malaysia teen's Facebook 'like' prompts sedition probe
"The 17-year-old student in the northern state of Penang had "liked" a post that declared "I love Israel" and featured a picture of the Jewish state's flag, Penang police chief Abdul Rahim Hanafi was quoted as saying Wednesday by Malaysian media. Abdul Rahim reportedly said a sedition probe was under way and that the student claimed to have accidentally clicked "like". Police also are investigating death threats against the student. Sedition can result in three years in jail in Malaysia. The student, who has been questioned by police, has deactivated his Facebook account.

Pope's small car fascinates South Koreans -
Pope's small car fascinates South Koreans
"After his arrival Thursday, the pope left the airport in a compact black Kia that many South Koreans would consider too humble a conveyance for a globally powerful figure. In a live television broadcast, the pope climbed into the backseat of the boxy Kia Soul, rolled down the window and waved. Surrounded by a few bigger black sedans, the pope's compact car headed toward Seoul. Francis' frugality and humble demeanor have received wide coverage in South Korea, a fiercely competitive country that celebrates ostentatious displays of status and wealth. This national trait can be seen in booming industries such as private tutoring and plastic surgery. The images of the smiling pope in his little car struck a chord online, with many playing on the car's name. One South Korean user tweeted: "The pope rode the Soul because he is full of soul." For the man called "The People's Pope" the choice makes sense. He has eschewed the bulletproof "popemobiles" that his predecessors used on foreign... more... - Steve C from Bookmarklet
