Re: "iCloud Keychain": This is not a good week to sell a cloud-based solution for storing all my passwords.
I had to read this three times. I swear it said "iCloud Kenyan." - Betsy
Somebody's take on Prism, and dirty talk:
"Helvetica Neue Ultra Light" is not a brand of cheap beer.
But it should be! - Amit Patel
$490,000,000 doesn't go as far as it used to.
I'm willing to give it a try. - Betsy
I'd like to assist Betsy. - Jennifer Dittrich
What about 1.4 Billion? - Louis Gray
I want my cell phone to google a phone number and put the top results on the screen as soon as the phone rings. (If the number is not in my address book already)
Yes! - Tinfoil 2.0
I use Mr Number on Android. It'll tell you if a number is a suspected spam number. The users submit spam numbers to their database. I have it set where if I get a call from any of the the numbers I blocked, the phone will stop ringing. - Rodfather from Android
We've been saying a similar thing too. #WANT - Lnorigb
Rodfather, tell me more about Mr Number. (Wait. You mean if I get a call from a block number my phone will ring? What's the point of blocking, then?) - Betsy
What I mean by block is blocking a number from within the Mr Number app. Unless you have Google Voice, there really isn't an easy way to actually block a call. What Mr Number does give you the option to hang up the phone or send to voicemail automatically. - Rodfather
I'm new to Android. so I'm confused. When I get a call from a number I don't recognize (so far, it's always been a missed call), I check the number on Google, then I go back to the phone and tag that call as "block this number." - Betsy
Thanks. I'll check it out. - Betsy
I have it set to send the numbers on my block list to voicemail. If you have it pick up and hang up, you'll probably get charged a minute. Which may not matter if you have unlimited minutes. - Rodfather
Sometimes if I'm lucky I can complete a search just in time (from my desktop) but that would definitely be a good feature. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Hadn't heard of Mr Number before. Thanks Rod! Installed now. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
The Wife and I are 3 episodes in to Arrested Development. There's always money in the banana stand!
Woman Who Cracked 3 Separate iPhone Screens Expecting Baby Boy This August
Curtis, who habitually mishandles the expensive, fragile electronic device containing all of her contacts and important personal information, expressed unbridled enthusiasm over the impending arrival of her newborn baby. In addition to having outright shattered her iPhone on multiple occasions, Curtis has improbably managed to drop it on the sidewalk nearly 10 times in the last five weeks alone, and said she has become increasingly excited about the prospect of motherhood. - Brian Johns
Is Elon Musk the real Tony Stark?
Supposedly the Tony Stark character in Iron Man is based on him a bit, and Elon did a cameo on the first movie as well. - Ken Gidley
Stephen Mack: Are you looking for an event for May? 5k "Chick Chaser":
whut - Stephen Mack from iPhone
it's like a fun run meets the bouquet toss at a wedding. - Brian Johns
I'm wondering a few things but principally: What are they thinking? - Stephen Mack
That it's a fun way to meet people? - Brian Johns
A half hour run with two, two hours parties afterwards? - Brian Johns
I just mean the whole chick/rooster thing. - Stephen Mack
Do I need to explain that part to you? :-) - Brian Johns
Can a guy or gal, register as a chick or a rooster? - Not Me
Seems to only work when setup with heteronormative gender roles. At least this example. You could reverse the roles, but it doesn't seem like you could co-mingle without some serious confusion. - Not Me
All right. I chased some chicks. And roosters. And my elusive record pace. Didn't catch anything really but had some fun! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Crime Blotter: Atherton: Ralston Road, 9:10 a.m. Monday A person thought a man doing wind sprints in an orange shirt and dress pants appeared suspicious because of the clothing he was wearing.
Dress pants? Is that what the cool wind sprinter kids are wearing these days? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Maybe when Atherton people think "How do I dress down a little bit?" they conclude it means wearing last year's collection? - Brian Johns
So, how about that crazy stock market, eh?
It's been a few years since I've looked at it… - Amit Patel
This year seems to be up, with the last couple weeks being crazy-up, with a growing disconnect from reality. - Brian Johns
I like one development from this afternoon. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Now I am nonplussed. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I love a sticky thicket of information controversy:
Looks like we're gonna have a battle early about the future of the internet, man. - Stephen Mack
Yeah - I thought that was a funny little quote. Like there's any doubt we're going to have a battle about the future of the Internet, or that this is "early", or that we haven't been having that battle since the beginning of the Internet, etc.... - Brian Johns
I'm trying to avoid reading reviews of the Great Gatsby movie, in the hopes that this will be the first movie I see in a theater in years. But really, who am I kidding?
I have not. But I read the book, and I like Baz L.'s other films. - Brian Johns
.LOLz! @Cristo - .LAG liked that
I expected nothing less! - Brian Johns
Our relationship with North Korea is so surreal:
the tweet: "I'm calling on the Supreme Leader of North Korea or as I call him "Kim", to do me a solid and cut Kenneth Bae loose." - Brian Johns
I hereby dub this Rebounder Diplomacy. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
How long do I let the girls sleep in on a vacation day?
Until nature takes its course. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
in our house it's how long do they let US sleep. - Big Joe Silence
Medical question: Are vampires susceptible to blood-borne pathogens from their victims?
Depends on the vampire some of them, yes. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
As Alex says. I've also seen stories where they utilize blood related conditions like sickle cell anemia, or hemophilia, to effect as well. - Jennifer Dittrich
Isn't vampire blood often considered to be different from human blood? - Johnny
Yeah, in the True Blood series, certain blood born diseases affect vampires. In the Necroscope series, vampires avoid lepers big time because the disease is devastating to vampires. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
"I was at Woodstock. I fed off a flower person and I spent six hours watching my hand move." --Spike, in a Buffy episode. - Betsy
I think not. They are dead, after all. - Uli
Thanks for the input everyone. - Brian Johns
Electric Mazda Miata conversion kits! - Brian Johns
the "long range" conversion is 98 miles/charge! And that's $20k! Yowch. - Jonathan Disher
Yeah, but I can charge for free at work! So that would save me like 40 cents every day! - Brian Johns
And I only need about 8 miles range, so maybe I could save some money there. - Brian Johns
Cheaper than a Tesla... - Brian Johns
Somehow I have become addicted to watching YouTube excerpts of America's Got Talent and the X Factor and shows like that. Apparently there's no shortage of people from random backgrounds that can sing.
I did not see this coming. - Stephen Mack
Dude, this is still one of my favorites, if you haven't seen it - Scott. Cat Herder.
Stephen: I know - I consider this a confession. I'm sorry. - Brian Johns
Scott - I've seen that one - I'm using the crowd to pick my content, usually watching whichever of the suggested videos has the highest number of views. 33,000,000 viewers can't be wrong, eh? - Brian Johns
Also, I've been wikipediaing the ones that stand out (to me) to see if they ever went anywhere or not. - Brian Johns
Two minutes of "no way..."
Two minutes of "no way..."
Just skip to 1:20 if you want the best part. Kids, don't try this at home. - Brian Johns
Wow. - Not Me
Wow. - Stephen Mack
Yikes! - Anne Bouey
fookin'ell. - Lnorigb
One slight miscalculation in trajectory or updraft strength and there would be a wall of 'pico de gallo' somewhere near that hole. (This is why I'll never be a daredevil.) - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
With about 5 different camera angles, it would be a well documented mistake. - Brian Johns
Mom comes home later tonight. This evening might be like one of those after school TV shows where everything has to get cleaned up super-fast so she has no idea what happened.
See also: The Cat In The Hat - Brian Johns
See also: "Gypsies in the Palace" by Jimmy Buffet - Brian Johns
So did you get it cleaned? By which I mean did you shove everything into a disused closet? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I don't think the place looks half bad. If she's aware of the hijinks that occurred while she was gone, she hasn't let onto it yet. The first thing she did when she got home was unpack her suitcase all over the living room. :-) - Brian Johns
Has anyone here tried the "Cinnamon Challenge"?
Those crazy kids... Next they're going to try to drink a whole gallon of milk in 5 minutes. - Brian Johns
Collapsed lungs, though... - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I was hoping it was like the whole "giant nutmeg sandwich" trend when I was in college, but this actually seems dumber. - Jennifer Dittrich
I had a friend in college that tried that nutmeg thing and found it REALLY worked on him. We nick-named him "nutmeg" and it stuck. - Brian Johns
The other childcare-provider-family-units are away this weekend so I'm taking the weekend off from training to be a dad instead. Achievements already unlocked include going out to dinner, wearing the same thing twice, staying up late, going to the zoo, mac-and-cheese for dinner, and cereal for dessert.
I'm either the best dad ever, or the worst parent ever. - Brian Johns
Have you taken them to an R-movie yet? That's another achievement to unlock! - Spidra Webster
She's only 2.5, so we're not quite ready for that. - Brian Johns
sleeping in daddy's tee shirt instead of regular pj's is next. - Lnorigb
Make sure she draws on the walls with crayons. - Stephen Mack
Stephen: When should we show up? Your crayons or ours? - Brian Johns
Hehehe :) I rent, so... My place it is. - Stephen Mack
You're doing a great job!! - Georgia from iPhone
I don't see any mention of ice cream! - imabonehead
Don't forget to forget to brush teeth. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
What about the chocolate cake? - Jonathan Disher
Best dad ever. - Louis Gray
Ice cream AND chocolate cake. As a mom, I made a great dad. ;-) - Mary B: #TeamMonique
Don't forget to play some loud music for her to dance to. - April Russo
Today we have gone swimming, have eaten ice cream straight from the container, and not put on shoes or socks yet. Today is a good day. - Brian Johns
Sounds like an awesome Sunday! :) - Tamara J. B.
Saw a news headline "Dutchess Kate's pregnancy more visible than ever". Yeah, that's how pregnancy works. This is not news - this is biology.
This is awesome: One-night-stand is complicated by Boston lockdown. Uncomfortableness ensues.
Not a good run this evening. (after spin) I'm having trouble running after other activities. (swimming or biking) The transition is hard and it takes awhile for the lower legs to loosen up. I have something to work on.
You're doing amazing work, Sparky. I'm very impressed. You'll get there. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Swimming to run/riding is cause all the blood is in your arms and your heart has to readjust to get the blood into your legs. When swimming, I always finish with 50-100m of fierce leg kicking. - Johnny from iPhone
Interesting. That's a neat theory that I'll have to try. - Brian Johns
IronTeam update: Today's training run was a half marathon and I set a new PR of 2:13 and kept my heartrate way below my last half marathon. :-)
That's 10,390 steps for you fitbit'ers. [edited: probably actually 20,780 steps, if you count both legs...) - Brian Johns
Should be more than that, sir. 13 miles is usually above 25,000 steps. - Louis Gray
Perhaps the steps are off by a factor of 2: The Garmin doesn't directly display the counting of each step, but instead shows the rate so I was back-calculating. My running cadence is pretty steady at 78 - 80 strides per minute which yields 6.68 feet per stride which seems high. (I'm pretty sure about the number of minutes I was out.) So perhaps 20,780 steps? - Brian Johns
Great job! - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
This is a neat, pretty 2 minute video of Google Street View imagery. With nice music.
I have always thought the Google Street View was one of the most audacious (and awesome) things ever created, in the history of man. - Brian Johns
They should stamp the year of vintage in the chocolate of Thin Mints so I know how old the cookies put out in the common area are.
They last that long in the common area/ - Spidra Webster
People buy them at work and put them in a drawer and then discover them the next year when they go to put the new box in the drawer. - Brian Johns
Then they go in the common area. - Brian Johns
I myself don't buy them because I don't like them. But I can't stop eating them when somebody else puts them in the common area. :-/ - Brian Johns
