Spring trifecta ends splendid week — solar eclipse, supermoon and equinox [The Washington Post]
From the article: "The past few days have been great for sky-watchers as a beautiful aurora sank as far south as the Midwest and Northeast on Tuesday night, the result of a severe geomagnetic storm. And Friday will add even more splendor as three astronomical events coincide on one day: a total solar eclipse, a supermoon and the vernal equinox." - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
I saw the eclipse, at least. :) - Jenny H. from Android

The No-Stilettos Rule: My Approach As A Woman Creating Scifi Book Covers - http://io9.com/no-stil...
The No-Stilettos Rule: My Approach As A Woman Creating Scifi Book Covers
"Although target audience affects all books, I'm going to dive deeper into one genre where it is absolutely critical—Urban Fantasy . This is the genre where we most frequently show characters on the covers, and the target audience is overwhelmingly women. It's also the genre where the covers get the most abuse for stereotypically having a hot woman on the cover with a gun, a bared midriff, and a bad tramp stamp tribal tattoo. The fans roll their eyes. the authors complain. People even make fun of the covers for charity . So what's going on here? If women are the target audience, how are these books ending up with objectified covers? I think there's a lot of overlap with similar issues in how women are portrayed in comics and gaming. However, as I said, the target audience is primarily women. So it sets aside the whole aspect of comics and gaming historically being a male-dominated media for now." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"First, Urban Fantasy is primarily a genre of wish fulfillment. There's a clearly defined hero, and you are following them through an adventure where you insert yourself into their eyes and experience their story, their feelings, their romance...and of course their run-ins with the supernatural. (Hey this is SFF, after all.) The hero should be sexy. But they should be sexual, not... more... - Jessie
"It was while working on these covers specifically (and yes, watching Supernatural doing research) when it all clicked for me. A hero character on the cover needs to be both "sexy I want to be" for the fans of that gender and also "sexy I want to $%^!#" for the fans of that sexual orientation. And the key, again, is agency. I kid about being a big Supernatural fan but that show hits... more... - Jessie
....I deeply and aggressively question the notion that the figure on the cover art needs to be "sexual" at all. - Soup in a TARDIS
I can see it being relevant if a big part of urban fantasy is the relationship between the main character and the sexy bf/gf (I don't read much urban fantasy so this is just based on the little bit I've seen). But outside of that, yeah, not really important. - Jessie
I don't read a ton of urban fantasy either, but what I have read has not led me to believe it is, as a genre, basically romance with magic or scifi thrown in. I know I am more easily annoyed by this whole everything-but-be-about-pairing-up issue than most people (this is literature people, not a fucking ark) but, ugh, it genuinely drives me batty. - Soup in a TARDIS
As a mainly e-book reader, I rarely get to see covers. But I really like the Seanan McGuire series of October Daye books. http://seananmcguire.com/toby... The covers there are nice and not overly sexualized from my POV. Buts the covers are not the reason why I read these books, its the content and story. Suggestions and referals from others gets me to read books more then anything else. - Me
The funny part to me is that there's urban fantasy and sexxxay urban fantasy, but both often end up getting lumped in together. You explore a lot of the same themes in the Dresden Files and Hollows books, but Rachel Morgan is more sexualized than Harry Dresden and there's more romance and sex as a central plot point in the Hollows books themselves. Both have them, but in one they're emphasized a lot more than the other. - Jennifer Dittrich

I don't always reformat hard drives, but when I do, I spend a ridiculous amount of time deciding between case-insensitive journaled HFS+ or case-sensitive journaled HFS+.
It's a sensitive subject. - Micah from iPhone
Last time I tried case-sensitive (this was years ago), bad things happened. So I just stick w/the default case-insensitive now. - rønin
as much as I want to do the right UNIX thing, you should stick with case-insensitive. For example, Adobe products refuse to install on case-sensitive HFS+. - Jonathan Disher
Yeah, on the pro side, case-insensitive is the default setting. On the con side, I once formatted a hard drive with case-sensitive HFS+ years and years ago and now I have a bunch of mp3 and aacs that only differ from one another due to capitalization. - Victor Ganata
This is one thing I still can't forgive Apple and Adobe for. - Brian Johns
As Johnathan stated, lots of apps don't like Case-sensative Journaled. - Me

I'm mildly tempted to not export anything from FriendFeed. Just say goodbye.
I thought about that, then I did an export anyway. And I'm purging posts to see how far back I can go. I'll probably do another export before the end, but whether I'll ever look at anything after that is moot. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
You can always delete your archive later, but once FF disappears, if you change your mind and want to re-read something, it's probably impossible to grab your stuff if you didn't before The End. - Stephen Mack
There are other exporters: http://web.archive.org/web... - Larry Hosken

Carrizo Plain, Antelope Valley, and maybe Death Valley could make for a good weekend trip. - Amit Patel
I still haven't gone. Maybe next weekend? - Amit Patel
Anza-Borrego might be too far south for me. I was thinking Carrizo Plain, Antelope Valley, then Death Valley, then up hwy 395 to Tahoe, since the other passes are closed. So many places to go! :) - Amit Patel
Interesting. I went there yesterday and there was very little. However, I think if I had gone to the north side (hiking longer than I had time for) I might've seen some. GOOD NEWS though is that desertusa's site pointed to some other locations with really amazing fields of flowers! I saw lots of orange (poppies) and yellows in Lancaster, and lots of purples by Soda Lake at Carrizo Plain. Pics soon. - Amit Patel

I go in these big spurts. I love the space game, I tolerate the ground game, but unlike WoW where I feel competent enough to occasionally do group stuff in STO I just don't... except on Crystalline Catastrophe, - Joe "The Anvil" Pierce
i got the hang of it, but my slow-arsed DSL connection made playing a bit crappy at times. - Big Joe Silenced
dammit, now i want to reinstall and play it again. GAH! - Big Joe Silenced
Did they have the DOFF system when you played last? It's a pretty cool mini way of doing things and lets you be more captain-ey.... Also there is now a Spock tribute statue on Vulcan and one on New Romulus (I have to go visit that one) both have plaques that honor fallen Trek alums. - Joe "The Anvil" Pierce
Duty Officers, you can now get a bunch and they go out on missions which can get you Dil, other items, xp and some other fun things. - Joe "The Anvil" Pierce
yeah, they had duty officers. that was neat. the real reason i stopped (apart from entire DAYS vanishing IRL) was that an update came down that didn't properly install and broke the game and i was never able to fix it. - Big Joe Silenced
