Techie librarian: connecting people with information, wherever.
delicious
There are days when I look back fondly to when a technical glitch was the card catalog drawer getting stuck.
DNS changes give me a headache.

I just love the fact that on my Mac I have to use Chrome to access Mozilla's backpack badge system. Firefox gives me "This browser is not supported" error!
We did a Choose Privacy study break last night, in honor of ALA's Choose Privacy campaign and our own finals. We set up food and computers set to Watch Dogs: Digital Shadow game app--it's a trailer/teaser for a game, but gives a fun and illuminating view of how much an app can see in your Facebook Account. http://digitalshadow.com
And then we also provided instructions for REMOVING apps from your FB account! - Rebecca Hedreen
About 50 people showed up! I don't think we've ever gotten that many for anything! - Rebecca Hedreen

We are losing our "personal" web space at my university - the web server space where we put up portfolios, professional home pages...basically, anything professional that didn't go into the "library" web server or CMS. Students have room on the Microsoft OneDrive, but faculty and staff, get, well, nothing if it's not departmental or course-related.
Not that I've kept mine a shining example of up to date web presence, but... - Rebecca Hedreen
same thing happening here. GDrive is recommended replacement. pretty wack. - RepoRat
really really sad. - aaron from BuddyFeed
We had Blackboard's portfolio system recommended as a replacement. WTF? (It's ugly, clunky, and not suited for anything other than a portfolio, if that.) - Rebecca Hedreen

RT @megaden: Facebook can track any page that includes a Facebook like button. Including the library's. Do not put like buttons in the OPAC! #LTC2014

Wow! A first day of Spring that actually feels like spring (wet and warmer). And a cute Google Doodle: http://www.google.com

Could some Twitter user please look at Twitter on the web and tell me where your logout button/link/command is? Thanks.
RT @copyrightlibn: Also, to alllll the people who have emailed me the article about Getty images, it's a neat project, but ads & user tracking ISN'T FREE.
Click through to someone's Twitter profile, go to follow them, realize I'm logged into the library account. Go to logout--cannot find the sign out link! I'm trapped!
Even weirder. http://twitter.com/logout doesn't work--click button nothing happens. - Rebecca Hedreen

Of course, lovely collapsing menu CSS used by our systems librarian on new(-ish) webdesign does NOT work in IE9. 7, yes; 8, yes; 10, yes; Firefox, yes; Chrome, yes; Safari, yes; IE9, no. And what is the most commonly used browser on campus?
And we didn't spot it right away, because we actually update our browsers. - Rebecca Hedreen
Combing through my vendor email, I come across this webinar: "Do You Have Improperly Misclassified Interns?" No! All of our interns are properly misclassified.
Poor interns... - Laura from iPhone

My university's final exam schedule announcement email this morning contained something I'm assuming is an untranslated ascii code--unfortunately, given the subject matter, that code is "¨" at the beginning of each line. Does anyone happen to have a more complete listing of ascii and/or know what this was supposed to be?
I'm guessing it's a bullet of some sort, given the positioning. - Rebecca Hedreen
According to a quick search it maps to a diaresis / umlaut - Pete : Team Marina
¨ <it's that. i put it into a web page.. i thought it might be diamond but that's &diams; - Christina Pikas
sounds like somebody was using Microsoft Word plus a font that maps poorly to Unicode. - RepoRat
or someone was really saying "die" "die"! - Christina Pikas
I suspect that it's what RR sez--bullets have a way of mapping to strangeness on export. - Walt Crawford
Thanks, all. (And they just sent the email again, without the mysterious ascii this time. No bullets, but maybe they sensibly gave up on that idea!) - Rebecca Hedreen
This looks like excellent plausible deniability for some of the emails I'd like to send about [Name of Project Redacted]. (Volcanoes should not be necessary this early in the week.) - Deborah Fitchett
Google/Authors Guild case, final summary judgement. Case dismissed. https://www.dropbox.com/s... (and an excellent lesson in fair use, too.)

Discovery of the day: storing oolong tea bags next to the lapsang souchong tea bags produces a lightly smoky oolong. Nice. ☕
