If anyone wants, I can post my hacked-together Ruby script that will download your feed and all the associated entries and images.
It is pretty rough. - Victor Ganata
So far known bug: I think any entry where the post text is just "." will result in weirdness - Victor Ganata
I'd like to see it, Victor. - Micah from FFHound!
It depends on the nokogiri gem. - Victor Ganata
OK, I will find somewhere to upload it to in a bit. - Victor Ganata
Cool. Thanks. - Micah from FFHound!
There is a superfluous "Â" in line 29 and in line 285. It should be "Older items »" not "Older items »". This won't matter for the main feeds, but it will break things when trying to download comment feeds. - Victor Ganata
Ooooh, sweet. - Jennifer Dittrich
I've never done anything with a Ruby script. Are there newbie instructions, or is it the kind of thing you need to know how to use so I shouldn't even try? :-) - bentley
I guess it depends on how adventurous you are. Right now it's just a command line script, and as I've just discovered, it can be messy trying to install ruby. And this is in OS X. I wouldn't know where to start in Windows. - Victor Ganata
I'm on a Mac but I know nothing about Ruby, so I think I'll pass for now. Thanks for writing it, though. - bentley

Couldn't FB release FF to the world as open source? Or couldn't someone purchase it for a pittance? - Sean McBride
I am pretty sure part of the rationale for FB's purchase of FF (beyond acquiring the engineering talent and the technology) was to make sure that none of their competitors (Twitter, Apple, Google) bought FF to use to compete against FB. It's not in their interest to release the source or let it be acquired by someone else. - Stephen Mack
Good God -- no matter how hard I try to hypnotize myself into liking Facebook, I find it to be slow, turgid, unwieldy, clogged up, heavy, cluttered and messy. - Sean McBride

The only thing FB could say at F8 tomorrow that would interest me: "We're not shutting down the best social network on the web after all." -

So I signed up for this where are you on it?

Wow, Mike! I was thinking my 11800+ was good! - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
I think I am done with my high numbers. There is a competition at work. it is fun competing, but my feet are a bit sore. - Mike Nencetti
Just spent 5 minutes on FB and holy crap I hate it. Why does my home feed change so drastically every time it reloads?
Yeah, I hate that it doesn't "save your place" when you click on something someone has posted and want to go back to comment/read what others have said. - Jennifer Dittrich
It's an algorithm so each interaction changes the calculation. Set your News Feed to Most Recent (from Top Stories) and it should fix it. - Johnny
Unfortunately, unless you use an add-on, you have to reset your news feed to most recent every. damn. day. (Not every session, but every. damn. day.) - walt crawford
Even when I have it set to most recent (without an add-on) it will still move stuff around. I find it incredibly shoddy and frustrating. - Jennifer Dittrich
Walt, FB hasn't reset my feed back to Most Recent since the last UI refresh. Maybe it's a bug with FB cookies on your browser. - Johnny
What Jenn said. I hate their algorithm so much. I see the same crap posts 30 times a day, but will miss good posts from my friends. So irritating. I've been unfollowing people and post types (as in 'never show posts from x', where x=Buzzfeed, Gawker, etc), but my FB feed still blows. The more FB tries to improve, the worse it gets. :( - Jenny H. from Android
I marked some folks as "Close Friends" even though we're not simply so I get a notification when they post. - Spidra Webster
Hey, haven't been around lately. What's new?
I showered. - Just another Bubba
Robert Scoble announced Social Media is dead. - Me

Shutting down is the new trend. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA

Exporting your feed should be a breeze. :) - Stephan Planken from iPhone

Here are the photos from our awesome meet up on Saturday in Oakland for Vic's birthday. We had a fantastic time but it went by too fast. For me, this will be the last FF meet up before FF shuts down, but I do hope we all remain friends for a long time to come. Thanks Vicster, Stephen, Jimminy, Corinne, Gabrielle, Mandy and Anne for being wonderful

If I wasn’t wearing my fitbit, did I move at all today?
*posts photo of a fitbit strapped to a tree* - Big Joe Silenced
I *hate* when I forget my FitBit. It's like all that movement doesn't count. - Catherine Pellegrino
Last week I stopped running after a couple laps and started again because my running app wasn't turned on. If you're asking yourself what the heck is wrong with me, it's okay :) - Jen

earlier, I posted a very general statement of affection for my friendfeeding friends. In the comments on this post I shall endeavor to be more specific about the things I really love about you fine people.
I like pie - Johnny
I like that Johnny likes pie. And that Johnny connects so immediately and warmly with everyone. - Bren
I had delish key lime pie tonight. - Micah
I love all the foodies here. I have seen so many great recipes from anna, Steven Perez and a bevy of other food-o-philes on here. edit: Micah just made my point for me. - Bren
I Loves me some ZZ Top - Loud! - Brent - Yes I am
I love that people here have fun *here,* that they share their joy (and sorrow) with people all over the world who have become a close-knit group of friends. Real friends. - Bren
I love Jandy's insane passion for film. I don't really get it, but I love it, and I am glad there are people like her and Jon (among others) who just let their passions show, even if they are somewhat obscure, or if they get flak from the people who don't get them. - Bren
I love the musicians, Rob (atmos trio), Josh Haley, Helen, and everyone else who shares their incredible talents with us. - Bren
I love the writers - Higlet, Brent, Aden, momo and so many others who grace us with beautifully turned phrases on a regular basis. - Bren
I love seeing Kamilah's ff-inspired art roll through my feed. She captures the essence of friendfeed in a way that is primal, joyful, vibrant and warm. - Bren
I love RAP's vast and comprehensive strolls through musicology. - Bren
I love the politicos. Even when I don't agree with them. I love that there can be civil political discourse here, even when it seems impossible in the "real" world. - Bren
I love the photography. The talent possessed by Kol, Mellisa, Johnny, and many many others is beyond me, but I'm glad I get to enjoy it. - Bren
Oh, right... the librarians. don't even get me started on the librarians... so much awesomeness - who knew? - Bren
Wonderful post. Simply wonderful. - Absentee
Oh, Bren....(((((hugs))))) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
I will share by double chocolate klondike bars with you Bren - VALZONE#SCREWED
witness the generosity of friendfeeders :) thanks, Val - Bren
welcome Bren :D - VALZONE#SCREWED
*applauds and wipes away a tear* Thanks for saying this, Bren! :) - LB needs a vacation
Bren: I think this made my week. Well said. - Ha3rvey (on hiatus)
nicely done Bren - MoTO Boychick Devil
Very nice! - Katy S
I love Derrick. His honesty, openness, and willingness to share his life with us is disarming and endearing. - Bren
Thank you for making me smile, Bren! - Mary Carmen
I love the ff'ers who have moved on, but who made ff interesting to me at times when I thought I would just bail: Corie, Far, Haggis, among others... I am thankful that I had the opportunity to encounter these fascinating, fun, lovely people. Maybe someday they will come back to the fold, but even if they don't, I'll always be thankful for what they contributed. - Bren
I'm really glad that this post has made people happy. I will add to it as I think of people. :) - Bren
this is so great, not least because I dig the same people for the same reasons <3 - Starmama
I love Bren, because he slyly wore a sweater vest to the PDX meetup and gave me a ride home in his zoom-zoom mobile and didn't succumb to putting his hands all over me. It's tough. Many fail at it. - Derrick
It was especially difficult since we got "lost" and had to drive around Portland for an hour... :) - Bren
"Hello, Friendfeed!" - Josh Haley
A: don't tell anyone, but you'll always be one of my absolute favorites. :) - Bren
:) - Derrick
I even love Cristo/Jimminy/Blu whoever the hell it is... - Bren
what about you, Cristo? you don't love me? - Bren're speaking of yourself in third person now? - Bren
:) - felicious
Ha! - Bren from iPhone
Which isn't hard, since he writes about 75% of that himself *highhat* - Bren from iPhone
Thanks, Bren - RAPatton
bump - Bren
{{warm feelings}} Thanks, Bren. - bentley
This is the kind of stuff I'll miss about FF. - Colette
yep. - Bren
Aw. This is really lovely. - felicious from FFHound!

Is there a message in the bottle??!! :-)) - Sepi ⌘ سپی
It is. It says: "I am like you" :) - Eivind
Reminded me of this: "....Walked out this morning, don't believe what I saw, Hundred billion bottles washed up on the shore , Seems I'm not alone in being alone , Hundred billion castaways, looking for a home.... " - Aryo

For the most part, I agree with that great sentiment - CarlC
i've travelled to NZ, Japan, Singapore and Malaysia. met alot of good people, but also loads of prejudiced, narrow-minded bigots. no single country or culture has a monopoly on those traits. - Big Joe Silenced
hear, hear - CarlC
Joe, that's a given. Fear and skepticism about outgroup members is a common human trait deeply rooted in us. Experiencing other cultures helps overcome that. - Eivind
*bump* - felicious from FFHound!

I know this will not last long, but for now I have reached the #1 ranking. (EDIT) I guess this needs some kind of #fitbit hashtag
Screenshot 2015-03-22 11.43.20.png
What list is that? - John (bird whisperer)
just my fitbit friends. sorry should have hashtagged it. - Mike Nencetti
mostly work, but a few Friendfeed people are in it. - Mike Nencetti
We had a workweek challenge this past week. I won my group, but would have lost if Gina G was competing, She was fortunately in another challenge. Only 10 people per challenge. So that is why my number is so high. I have a weekend challenge going on now. - Mike Nencetti
It really does some down to, at least to me, treat people the way you want to be treated.
I misread that as “tweet people the way you want to be tweeted.” - Amit Patel
Only if you're Elmer Fud. - Hookuh Tinypants
