You ever want to share a link, and have the person you are sharing it with go to the exact spot you are looking at? The ability to embed your own anchor tags into someone else's page without needing your friend/colleague to install a third party product. THAT, that is what I want

Sometimes I don't want to tell people I'm a librarian. Mostly because 95% of the time they make some lame joke about Dewey.

So... if genetic information is transferred via cells that can pass from the fetus to the mother through the placental-endometrial linkage, and since the fetus also has genetic information from the father, the mother receives genetic material from the father, albeit indirectly? And, furthermore, those cells can distribute throughout her body even into her brain? Whoa... that boggles my mind. #MyExWillBeUpsetWhenSheFindsOut! - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android
"Uteri do not fossilize well." Hahaha! I love that line. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
"What this means is that the growing fetus now has direct, unrestricted access to its mother's blood supply. It can manufacture hormones and use them to manipulate her." I KNEW IT! - Spidra Webster

MESSAGE FROM TUNNEL: What is that, off in the distance? A glimmer? Could it be... light?
Awwwww. A line from the comments section of a campus survey: "Iris Jastram is a gem. She is the most helpful, most upbeat, and most knowledgeable library liaison I could imagine, and I'm really glad I get to work with her!"

Thinking, at least partly because of Barbara Fister, of a conference discussion group thing entitled, "H important is patron confidentiality?" Key points to begin the discussion include the Amazon Kindle library deal, Overdrive, subscribing to services that require patrons to register at the vendors' sites (eg, Zinio), and search engines that...

and search engines that don't support secure network connections - DJF from Android
And ILSs that send your password in plain text.... - laura x
Yeah. Refworks does that too. - DJF from Android
good lord, really?! - RepoRat
also, hang tight for my next LJ column, which is about one small piece of this constellation of dilemmas. - RepoRat
The response to "I forgot my password" is an email message that includes ALL the usernames and passwords, in the clear, associated with the given email address. - DJF from Android
that just ain't right. - RepoRat
Nope. And it used to be the case that they didn't bother to obscure your password while you were typing it in on the mobile website. I really don't know why we pay for it at all. - DJF from Android
Our ILL system that keeps a record of everything you have ever requested. Ditto 3M and OneClickDigital. - kaijsa
The FBI will be pleased to know. (Ours keeps a record for too long - should be scrubbed on return. - barbara fister
Our ils scrubs on return, or when fines paid. Don't know about ill, but I suspect it's approximately forever - DJF from Android
I once had a conversation with an IT guy at my old library, who said, "you know, it's true that the ILS scrubs circ records as soon as the book is returned. It's also true that the ILS is backed up nightly." Gave me the right shivers, it did. - Catherine Pellegrino

Lately I've found myself pointing to Repo's comments here on ff with the notation '^^^' to signify that I agree with what she's said. Let's move forward with just assuming that I'm going to agree with what she's said and we'll save ourselves a bit of time. Okay? Okay.
lol you should probably worry about that. agreeing with me ONLY LEADS TO SORROW. - RepoRat
:) RR and I strongly disagree on some things (cordially, I think), so I won't take this approach. - Christina Pikas
wise Christina is wise - RepoRat
Okay, so I'll be sure to note then when I DO NOT agree with RR, just to keep us all honest. - Marie

Just what I needed on Friday evening of a, well, tricky week: Peter Suber praised my Bohannon/sting essay on Google+. My week's just gotten much, much better.
No, I don't know how to link to it, or I would. He was commenting on an OATP note on the essay. Google+ has become something of a focal point for OA folk, much like FF for a few hundred library types. - Walt Crawford - Actually similar to Friendfeed. The link is in the "time since post" text. This link works for me anyway. - Cameron Neylon
Cameron: Thanks. For some reason, I wasn't getting a link when I did hover-overs anywhere. Maybe just wasn't paying attention. (Admittedly, if it wasn't for OA/Suber, I might not use G+ at all, and as it is it's infrequent.) - Walt Crawford
