"...But not always. Scott Heydt, director of marketing at Horizon Signal Technologies, says his company routinely sets up its portable traffic signals at road construction sites. Frequently, they are simply towed to a site and turned on. "We just set one up like that in New Jersey," said Heydt. "You can be driving to work and everything is normal, but on your way home, discover a new traffic light." (Of this possibility, a Google spokesperson said, “We will have to be ready for that.”) ... - WarLord

#nanowrimo Pre-Nov 1 nano novel musing or it's only October 22 which story idea do I like better. The story I want to tell is modern day magic mixed with coming of age in suburbia. One idea is of course our young protagonist trained by modern day wizard. I have a "meets cute" so it starts nicely BUT of course the older wiser mentor
Can sorta kinda take over story from our young hero. Plus of course rules are boring - WarLord
Second idea, the protagonist finds a Grimoire and teaches himself to be wizard. This has advantages of more mistakes and hapless experiments as he works his "painful" way into competence. Plus maybe nice conflicts with wizards and any wizard ruling council as he blunders about. I kinda like "B" better BUT - WarLord
The Grimoire the wizard cook book is essential and how I get that book into his hands is driving me nuts. I'm thinking a book sale maybe a box of books for $10- $20 bucks but again how to make the Grimoire be ignored by all until Dylan finds it??? - WarLord
I like the idea of stumbling on a book. Dylan could be cleaning someone's attic/basement/garage and find it, the person doesn't know what it is so they let him keep it. Could be at a book sale, tucked away behind some other things, maybe planted there for him to find? Box lot at an auction that he sees something he wants and the book is at the bottom with a few others. The cover could be grimy and indistinct, which is why people ignore it. - Heather
^ that one's easy. It looks like an ordinary book to everyone except that kid. He has the "gift" so he can read it. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I thought about "ordinary book" thing... I like cleaning out the trash.... Dylan does good deed adventure ensues. I thought about box of books also containing enclosed book stand that concealed this book... I dunno taking out the trash maybe with a side of ordinary looking book - WarLord
Of course maybe I need to expand my "palette of colors" I mean kid discovers magic, adventures ensue - where have we read that before? If I go with "taking out the trash" literally anyone could discover the book. An adult, not necessarily an orphan or sullen loner etc etc That makes an accidental wizard a very different story - WarLord

$65 to find out if we have $1700 or $2900 in repairs. Time to move on?
'99 Chevy Venture 119,000 miles. Is this repair the beginning of the end? - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
I've got a '97 minivan. I asked the mech before pouring money in it. It was his opinion that if I did the repairs, there were still years of good life left in it. If you like your car, if a reputable mech tells you the repairs will take care of things for a good while, that it has life left in it, then it's certainly cheaper than buying another car. - Spidra Webster
How many monthly payments in a new (or newer) ride is the repair and will repair give you that much useful life out of your old ride. - WarLord
'99 Chevy Venture 119,000 miles. We got it for $1 about 6 years ago. I can't roll down the windows, no cup holders for the front passengers, radio only (cassette player stopped working last spring), windshield cracked... I think we're ready to move on. - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!

Funny how the people who keep saying voting is a waste of time only talk about how all the candidates and parties are the same. They never mention the fact that you're also voting on state, county, and city measures that will totally affect your life in very concrete ways.
That's because they're simple-minded. It's too hard for them to think that much. - Anika
Plus of course the parties and candidates are NOT the same but hey simple minded - WarLord
I assume they've never voted and have no idea that there are things like ballot questions. - Heather
People who "choose" not to vote come up with the most remarkable reasons. And it's SOOOOOO difficult to register and vote (esp. in states with permanent absentee ballots, like California). Thus us aged and, unfortunately, them extremists take over the gummint because we'll take the time to be part of it. - Walt Crawford

Recurring dreams: 1. I'm in high school and I can't remember my locker combination, and 2. I keep thinking that I have missed a ton of assignments and am failing the class.

I have those as well! Also: 3) I'm graduating from high school for the 3rd, 4th, 5th time because I kept going back to try to get better grades. I suddenly realise I'm a married mother of two hanging out with 17yo's and wearing a uniform but that's not weird. - Melly - #TeamMarina

This is PERFECT “Why #Gamergaters Piss Me The F*** Off” by @ChrisWarcraft https://medium.com/@ChrisW... Chris Kluwe speaks truth to idiots #ftw
Like this: "... (#Gamergate, for those unaware, is what happened a bit over a month ago, where an angry neckbeard posted demonstrably false allegations about his ex-girlfriend, claiming she slept with video game site reviewers for better scores for her games (again, demonstrably false), and then a whole bunch of other angry neckbeards on the Internet went full Denis Dyack and spitfrothed themselves into national attention by making an array of threats on numerous female game developers, including ones about their death, tried to hide behind a shield of “it’s about journalistic ethics because they said gamers are dead,” and generally proved why the Internet needs to be burned to the ground and the ashes salted. If you’re curious about the details, here’s a good background link.) ..." - WarLord
Or this "... You slopebrowed weaseldicks with zero reading comprehension and even less critical thinking skills who think an article claiming “Gamers are dead” is something bad? Fuck me sideways with a sandblaster. It’s like all you can do is look at this collection of words, scratch yourself uneasily, and then run off to look for grubs. Your reaction (and I am not making this up,... more... - WarLord
This is the best thing I've ever read. AMAZING! - Heather
THIS 1000x. "In fact, #Gamergaters, if your concern really was ethics, the very first thing you would be saying about this whole mess is, “Holy shit, get these fucking misogynistic creeps away from us. Let’s find a different hashtag to assemble under RIGHT FUCKING NOW.” You’d be doing everything in your power to make sure the legitimate cause you’re concerned about wasn’t hijacked or used as a shield by those with no other agenda than to make women and minorities afraid, simply because they can." - rönin

we have a Kindle Fire HD. it was free. no real complaints. - Big Joe Silence
We continue to like our Kindle Fire HD 8.9, but now you'd want the HDX 8.9, which is apparently powerful enough to be a decent general-purpose tablet (and has phenomenal resolution). But it's still Amazon-tuned, running a customized Android, which may be an issue. - Walt Crawford

"... These people have nothing in common except their prior irrelevance, obscurity, and a dogged hatred of anything resembling progressive values. But to even call the clown kings of Gamergate "conservatives" is to give them more credit than they're due; this isn't political, it's personal and deeply cynical. Atop a blob of angry, naive, and alienated youths is this handful of self-promoters who recognize an opportunity to self-promote. The kids of Gamergate think they've found heroes and allies, a group of adults who will finally include and respect them. But they're being made fools of all over again. ..." - WarLord

Ruth Bader Ginsburg puts her finger on the goal of Texas' voter ID law: racism http://fw.to/wKJnzdE
"Texas has been found in violation of the Voting Rights Act in every redistricting cycle from and after 1970," she wrote. She cited "the state's long history of official discrimination in voting, the statewide existence of racially polarized voting, the incidence of overtly racial political campaigns, the disproportionate lack of minority voting officials, and the failure of elected officials to respond to the concerns of minority voters." - WarLord

That wasn't what I expected, but it is so true. I feel lucky - most of my teachers, even when the format was 'lecture,' routinely encouraged students to engage in questioning over the course of that day's lessons, and always chatted with students at the beginning and end of classes far more informally. I didn't realize until now how important that probably was. - Jennifer Dittrich
Wow truly insightful reflective post #mustread - WarLord
I'm glad most of my classes and my kid's classes aren't like what he described. We had self-guided classes. Unit was introduced, then we read, discussed, were assigned a project and presented. That's how my kid's schools are. We had the freedom to run to the library, computer lab or wherever. I do have to say, college was a big adjustment for me. Having a teacher dismiss my question in the middle of a lecture seemed so rude compared to my schooling. - Anika
