What some of us TiVo-peeps have been working on recently:
Grats to us! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Looks really cool. Depending on cable options in Palmdale, that might be a good solution. We'll need something, since we're leaving the existing TiVos here for Jojo and our friend Eddie, who's going to move in with him as a sort of RA/minimal adult supervision kinda person. - Mary B: #TeamMonique
But does it have a screensaver? - Me
Ha! That's funny. - Brian Johns
I will be getting the lowest-end model, because that's the one that supports ATSC. (Free HDTV over the air, from my roof-mounted antenna) - Brian Johns
Roamio, Roamio.... wherefore art thou, Roamio? - Louis Gray
Ironman Tahoe update: Today is the one year anniversary of the passing of my friend Greg, and I find it fitting that today I have passed my fundraising minimum for the Ironman I'm doing in his memory. Thank you everyone for your generous donations! Our dollars are going to a good cause, so hopefully nobody else will have to lose their Greg.
Over 50 of you came together and donated from $20 on up, and with 6 weeks left to go this thing is feeling very real. I'm ready to go. - Brian Johns
Looking forward to you nailing this, Sparky! In awe of the execution. I don't think I could complete any of the legs. - Louis Gray
Congratulations on the fundraising goal, Sparky! - Stephen Mack
Congrats and what an awesome things you're doing to honor Greg and help cancer patients everywhere. You're going to rock that Ironman. - Tamara J. B.
Can't make this stuff up: Utah pageant winner, 3 others charged with throwing homemade bombs from car

Utah? I would have guessed Florida or Texas. - Stephen Mack from iPhone

For all you people who love cats failing:
I'm no expert, but I think you've got a problem when your city sets up a toll-free hotline specifically to report sexual harassment by the current mayor. ‪#‎sandiego‬
Yeah, that's a problem. - Katy S
Sharknado gets midnight theatrical release:
Whyyyyy - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Because drunk college students need something to do on Friday night? - Brian Johns
I think you'd have to be REALLY drunk. - Stephen Mack
It would be better if there was a director's cut or something. - Brian Johns
Sharknado had a director???? - Friar Will
It must have had a director, because how else would the sharks know where to go and what to say? Duh. - Brian Johns
Good one, Brian. - Friar Will
It's hard to argue with that kind of logic, eh? ;-) - Brian Johns
Jumped. The. Shark. - Louis Gray
CBC had a fun interview with the screenwriter. Almost 9 minutes. - Betsy
quantify "really drunk?" #askingforafriend - WarLord
So, if you were a journalist that Snowden had turned over all his material to, (much of it still unreleased) I guess that would make you a pretty big target for the NSA.
From a Reuter's article: "The Rio de Janeiro-based columnist for Britain's Guardian newspaper said he has recruited the help of experts to understand some of the 15,000 to 20,000 classified documents from the National Security Agency that Snowden passed him, some of which are "very long and complex and take time to read."" - Brian Johns
Direct quote from my two year old girl: (while sobbing) "I don't want to go to school. I want to go to the mall."
I don't think I'm going to show her that video. - Brian Johns
Aww, why not, it's Robin Sparkles! - Jonathan Disher
OK - I just had to go read up on Robin Sparkles and the Slap Bet episode of How I Met Your Mother. I love the video for all the Canadiana, and because I love the 80's. - Brian Johns
So you'll totally show it to her now, right? :) - Jonathan Disher
Let's have a moment of silence for tonight's workout, BECAUSE I KILLED IT.
LIKE A BOSS! Well done, sir! - Tamara J. B.
Today was the longest, hardest ride I've ever done: 104 miles, about 8,000 feet of climbing. We're down to the last 5 hard weeks of training and we're not wasting our time.
I was thinking about your effort today, Sparky! Not that far away. Good luck sir! - Louis Gray
Great job, Sparky! How do you feel? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Whoa, you earned TWENTY personal records. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Hamstrings are a little tight but other than that I feel surprisingly good today. (8 mile run scheduled for today - we'll see about that) My main problem after long bike rides is the energy drain. I'm using WAY more calories than I can replenish during the ride. - Brian Johns
Good luck on your run. And eat some nachos or something. :) Amazing job! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
You're awesome. Such an inspiration!! - Tamara J. B.
That's pretty epic, sir. good work! - Jonathan Disher
And then I get home from a 4 mile walk with Kim and Olivia, and read this again, and go :( - Jonathan Disher
Sharknado, tonight on Syfy. (includes trailer video)
Makes me wish I had cable. - Brian Johns
This interview is great: - Brian Johns
Truths about introverts and extroverts:
It must be so sad to be an introvert. I wonder if I've ever met one... - Brian Johns
Looks legit. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
"Extroverts can keep talking for as long as two hours after their heads are chopped off." I bet that one is SO TRUE! - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
That one especially made me LOL. - Brian Johns
I will be tolerant of Orson Scott Card by not gay-marrying him.
‘Angry Trayvon’ app to shut down, developer says:
"The game app featured a main character who wore a hooded sweatshirt and shared a name with Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old who was shot and killed by a neighborhood watchman in Sanford, Fla., in February 2012. The Trayvon character in the game held a baseball bat and attacked other characters." - Brian Johns
The Mom From ‘The Cat in the Hat’ Finally Speaks:
Happy 2013th birthday America! We really showed those French who's boss, right?
Mais oui! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
THis article about people being stuck in airports for months or years is fascinating:
And now we get today's SCOTUS decisions...
Congrats on your big day! So happy for you, Sparky! - Louis Gray
Training for Ironman Tahoe is coming along nicely. Went up to Tahoe for a training weekend. Swam a little, biked a lot, had a gorgeous run. The bike course is hard but I'm confident I'll be able to do it in the allotted time. More info on my blog:
Awesome job, Sparky! And you look great. - Stephen Mack
397 feet elevation change during the 14 mile run is certainly not flat. Dude. 11pm finish on race day. I'm glad you're ready! - Stephen Mack
This will make some people angry: "AMA declares obesity a disease"
Today's workout: 29 mile bike, 3 mile run, 30 mile bike, 4 mile run. #ironteam #tired
Whoa, great job! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
It won't let me see run 1. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Fixed permissions on run 1. - Brian Johns
I use the term "run" loosely... - Brian Johns
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!
