Dolmaki helendir helen kalacak. Barbar Türkler nerden yemek yapmayı bilir - Terra Barselonevî from Android
THIS ISN'T DOLMA. DOLMA IS MADE OF RICE AND EGGPLANT AND SOMETIMES TOMATO. YOU FILL EGGPLANTS AND TOMATOS WITH RICE AND YOU COOK IT. THIS IS SARMA. YOU STOLE IT, I GET IT. BUT YOU CAN'T CHANGE ITS NAME, IT'S WRONG! - ceku al-Selefî (السلفية)
And that bread over there, that's ours either. It's called pide, mostly Ramadan pide, American people call it pizza, it's also wrong. - ceku al-Selefî (السلفية)
I have never claimed that dolma belong to my country and any other countries. Dolma is a family of stuffed vegetable dishes common in the Middle East and surrounding regions including Balkans, the Caucasus, Russia and Central Asia . You can find dolma in many countries like Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Iran, Iraq, Sweden and Turkey. - Mahdi

Dear Mahdi , these foods baklava, dolma, kebap , humus etc. I cant write all of them here.

I have been also Iran two times and it was fantastic!!! - Terra Barselonevî from Android

I've been totally procrastinating buying plane tickets back east for this summer. Every year it gets more and more complicated for me to visit the family and friends I want to see. Of course, the longer I wait, the more expensive the tickets get, which paralyzes me and only makes things worse. I start cursing the fact that I did this to myself. =(
I hear ya. - Mary Carmen

El Sereno resident organizes ‘Riff Raff Ride Into San Marino’ event
"Linked by Huntington Drive, neighborhoods in San Marino and El Sereno may be a mere six miles apart and about the same age, but the communities have little else in common. Differences in education, income levels and ethnic makeup have created a steep divide in places that were once fairly similar and familiar with each other. A 121-page draft bicycle plan now before the San Marino City Council could either widen the divide or bring the disparate citizenry closer. Much of what happens next depends on two events. “The community in El Sereno, they’re a blue-collar, working-class community,” resident Carlos Morales said. “In San Marino, I would describe them as a white-collar community. The income level drastically changes.” On June 16, San Marino staff may bring a draft bicycle and pedestrian plan by Ryan Snyder and Associates back to the Traffic Advisory Commission for review, Assistant City Manager Lucy Garcia said. Staffers plan to re-introduce the proposal in a piecemeal way to... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet

!#%% # #@@ !@#%@#$@#$ MICROSOFT @#$@#(*&+#&$ OUTLOOK is the worst !@#%&#% piece of %#$$%&!@# !@#%^^&&.
Meeting request sent to me by my boss last night. Doesn't show up in my calendar until 23 minutes after the start of the meeting. - Stephen Mack
Trying to adjust a meeting this afternoon. It's sitting there updating the folder and not letting me open the meeting. Going on 5 minutes now. - Stephen Mack
I can't believe software this bad is so ubiquitously used. - Stephen Mack
Oh good. It's not just me. Outlook is always mis-scheduling, not reminding, or otherwise screwing up. It's even dropped people off the invitation and then I end up looking stupid. - Nine DataAngel Ferdinand
What a bloated miserable piece of jacked up failure. - Stephen Mack
Nine, you have my sympathy. - Stephen Mack
And you have mine. Of all the Microsoft stuff I hate, Outlook is absolutely the top. - Nine DataAngel Ferdinand
Once I couldn't accept a meeting because I was the "Sender" when I wasn't, it was the project manager. She would have to call me to let me know about it beforehand so I'd be there. She couldn't remove me and re-add me either. Outlook is so appallingly bad. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
My favorite is when I cancel a series and then the room resource doesn't get the cancellation and stays booked, and I can't re-cancel it because it's no longer in my calendar. - Stephen Mack
The IT dept just moved everyone to a new system BUT they didn't move the rooms yet. Scheduling meetings in conferences has been FUN! Not that I book meetings, but I've heard about it in every meeting I've been to lately. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
Scott had some choice words for it the past few days. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Your IT Dept has exchange setup incorrectly then. Correctly configured Exchange server will auto configure Outlook to work appropriately. When they start to "mickey mouse" the system is when it goes wonky. - Me
Outlook annoyance of the day: Reminder to a meeting from yesterday pops up. I click dismiss. CPU consumption rockets to 100% for about 3 minutes, locking up my laptop. Eventually Outlook presents an error message: "Cannot turn off the reminder. You may be reminded again. The operation failed. The messaging interfaces have returned an unknown error. If the problem persists, restart... more... - Stephen Mack
I feel your pain. You know what is worse? The web client. - Mary Carmen
OUTLOOK YOU PIECE OF FUCKING SHIT I FUCKING HATE YOUR GUTS GOD FUCKING DAMN IT AUGGGGGHGHHH - Stephen Mack
I'm pretty sure that hidden in its code is some sort of dark magic that feeds on the hate, loathing, and frustration of the person who invokes it every day. With each minor annoyance, it gains strength, abiding against the opening of the gates when it will rise to take its place as Lord of the Blood Plains of Eternal Suffering. Or something like that. - Jennifer Dittrich
^ AWESOME - Stephen Mack
Another day, another disaster with Outlook. F'ing POS. - Stephen Mack
Today's Outlook annoyance: Senior engineer asks me if his staff can attend my meeting this afternoon, I agree, he forwards my calendar entry to his team's alias. Outlook makes it look like *I* forwarded the meeting -- his name is nowhere on the e-mail. Exec is on the alias, so gets invited. Exec's admin sends me a snippy note asking me what the hell I'm doing. - Stephen Mack
Boooooo - Georgia
What kind of janky-assed version of Outlook are you using? I've rarely encountered issues with it. Sounds like someone or something needs to be set on fire. - Hookuh Tinypants
I typically don't consider missing a meeting a problem. :) - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
Stephen Mack is such a sweetheart that when I saw all the ASCII invective, I was wondering who could have pissed him off that much. I should have known... - Spidra Webster
Thanks, Spidra, but I do get mad at actual people too: http://friendfeed.com/bitchfe... - Stephen Mack
It's so adorable when Stephen gets mad. Like good and proper mad. Because he's literally the sweetest human being I have ever met. So you figure when he gets mad, it's REALLY bad. - Hookuh Tinypants
YOU WOULDN'T LIKE ME WHEN I'M ANGRY - Stephen Mack
Psh. You're still adorable when you're angry, so yeah. We would. :) - Hookuh Tinypants
What the fuck is wrong with your Outlook/Exchange environment? This is not normal. I admit, there can be issues because I admin the damned thing at my job, but it sounds like yours is borked. - Eric - It's My Thing
Funny, Outlook is the one Microsoft product I find useful. Agree w/Eric must be a borked exchange setup. Ours works pretty darn good. - Laura Norvig
you will have to pry Outlook from my cold, dead hands. - holly #ravingfangirl
We've had Outlook since 1997 and I absolutely love it. The only times I've ever had a problem with it are when our server admin team has jacked up a setting during an upgrade. (at which point the sound of 50K+ shrieking employees gets the problem resolved pretty fast) Unfortunately, when you hire network/server people who either lack a proper foundation of knowledge for managing it or have outright disdain for it, you end up with a borked end result. - Hookuh Tinypants
Yeah, Hookuh, good point -- it's quite possible our configuration is borked, but it's been a disaster for me for the entire time we've used it (about nine years), and my general assessment of the network/admin people here is that they're very good -- plus we've had many different admins and consultants over those nine years, including MS coming in to address performance issues. I have... more... - Stephen Mack
Migrating our company to Office365 today. I'm not a huge Microsoft fan. So this should be interesting. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Shall we talk about how Outlook renders HTML? :P - Ken Morley
Only if we can talk about how much I despise HTML e-mails. - Hookuh Tinypants
I am so so with you on that. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
We're supposed to get Office365 next year. I wish we would just switch to Google Apps - we can get it for free as we are part of the Google for Nonprofits program. But no, such a drastic change would be unfathomable, I'm sure. - Laura Norvig
I dunno, Google vs. MSFT is kind of toss-up when it comes to corporate-level apps. Google doesn't scale well IMHO. Of course, the counter argument is, well, Microsoft. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)

If you uncheck "Accept third-party cookies", Firefox will no longer send any cookies to iframes (even if set outside of an iframe), which breaks the FriendFeed Facebook app. Has Firefox always been like this?
Picture 5.png
These "privacy" features end up hurting privacy, because then web sites switch to signed urls and such, which are much worse (they leak out in referrer headers). - Paul Buchheit
Yup, this was exactly my problem. I accidentally unchecked it while messing around with cookies while programming...occupational hazard... - Emmett Shear
This breaks Feedly as well. I've always unchecked third-party cookies because I was under the impression that's where most click-trackers and ad-servers lived. Am I wrong? - Akiva
Yes, for exactly the same reasons. You are not wrong. - Sam Pullara
Isn't this the default policy in IE7, unless you enable p3p for the sites? - Michael Herf
I'm not pretty sure I agree with @paul - there are enough examples of manipulations by 3rd party cookies, from ads tuning and down to other nasty tricks. You may dislike it but it is there to protect us. And it is there for years. - непростые коротышки
It's irritating enough that I have to allow cookies on sites I want to share through the bookmarklet. Luckily, I use CS Lite. - Akiva
Please see this bugzilla entry for a quick overview: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bu... - Reading the entire bug is a good idea. This is also a relevant bug if you're interested: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bu... - Christopher Blizzard
These sorts of gimmicks are to privacy what a paper mache motorcycle helmet is to safety. They interfere with legitimate functionality while giving a false sense of security. - Paul Buchheit
you should accept authentication using facebook params, and set a cookie if you can. you have the user info right there - no need for a cookie - Ivan Kirigin
For the record, I was part of the IE team when we implemented the IE third party cookie P3P support. It was a feature completely designed by a set of State Attorneys General. They specified everything down to the UI in the IE control panel. It was a disaster. - Joe Beda
Ivan, those facebook params leak through referrer headers, meaning that other people can steal your login. Joe, the P3P thing is kind of dumb, but at least I can set the right headers to make the problem go away. That's an amusing back-story though. - Paul Buchheit
from bug report above "b) the ability to make decisions based on p3p policies was removed for firefox 3, because p3p isn't an effective way to establish trust with a site. it's a one-way system; anyone can say they're the good guy" - непростые коротышки

I want to make guacamole tomorrow. But the avocados I bought are like a rock. Is there anything I can do to make them ripen faster?
ffhound_image_0.png
Like is it better to put them in the fridge, or outside, or wrapped in a paper towel, or sacrifice a goat? - Stephen Mack
(Posted in the form of an avocado man saying hi because generally speaking I have the maturity of a 12 year old.) - Stephen Mack
Anecdotally, I've put some in a plastic bag with a couple of apples, and that seemed to make the process go a little faster. (Non-refrigerated.) - Jennifer Dittrich
Hahaha! Avocado Man! :D - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Bananas in a brown paper bag - Johnny from iPhone
You can make almost any fruit ripen faster by exposing it to apples or bananas, which give off ethylene gas. Definitely leave them out of the fridge. Don't put them in the fridge until you're trying to slow down ripening. - Spidra Webster
Many thanks, all! For a perverse second I felt like being scientific about it and trying each suggested method separately for each avocado (along with a control avocado not being futzed with at all) to then establish which method was best, but the problem with that is there's no objective way for me to easily measure the firmness of each avocado, so I quickly realized I'd need a lot more data points to draw proper conclusions. - Stephen Mack
...down to the store to get more avocados, by the sound of it - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
No matter what you decide, I think you should sacrifice a goat. You know what they say: Trust in God, but tie your camel. - Morgan Fugel
I thought the saying was: Trust your camel, but tie down your God. - Kristin
I'm sacrificing some chicken and baby back ribs; that'll have to approximate. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I think babies are considered even larger sacrifices than goats, so that should be fine. I think the sacrificial value is about ten chickens to a goat and two goats to a (male) baby. - Morgan Fugel
I have sliced avocados in half & put them in a paper bag for a while to ripen them for guacamole. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
If you do your avocado experiment, these people would love to have some evidence: http://cooking.stackexchange.com/questio.... But I suspect the goat is key. - Jenica
The word "avocado" comes from the Spanish aguacate which in turn comes from the Nahuatl word āhuacatl [aː'wakat͡ɬ] (testicle, a reference to the shape of the fruit). - Greg GuitarBuster
Greg, that is good to know. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Jenica, awesome link. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Thanks all! Much riper this morning. I went with bananas in a plastic bag. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
good to know plastic worked -- I always heard close up in a paper bag to ripen avocadoes, but almost never have paper bags - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
How did it turn out? - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Tam, turned out very well! I was happy. - Stephen Mack
My working theory is that a plastic bag should work better for short term ripening (like 1 day) since there is no airflow, but a bad idea for longer than overnight because of moisture/mold issues; so for non-urgent ripening, brown paper bags are best. The link Jenica put in earlier had an interesting discussion about why brown paper vs. white paper: No bleach. - Stephen Mack
I place them in a paper bag, roll it up, and stick it in a corner. That seems to ripen them up nicely after a day (or two if they were really green and hard). - Steve
No ...only the goat sacrifice works.. ! - Peter Dawson

A recent change in FF: now the comment count shows total number of comments (previously multiple comments in one thread only counted as one) http://friendfeed.com/e... so all the numbers above are from the old methodology.... - David HC Soul

*bump* - Micah
1.26 (2965/2346) - Micah
Thanks, Glen and pea! - Micah
Looks like my ratio as flipped again (comments back to dominating again). Seems to match my own awareness I've lately been commenting without Liking (commenting is my inherent recognition of value to me and the additional Like is when it merits an extra bump to help discovery by others). - Micah

Jimminy, I'm copyrighting every single number. It's kind of a honeypot ;) Actually, it was curiosity mostly, but I also hope to build a sampling (small and self-selecting as it may be) for anyone who might want to analyze it. - Micah

Wow I didn't realize I was so out of whack!! 12.23 that's got to be a record (and I don't even import my feeds with the summary as a comment)!! - Chris Myles
Thanks JA, Chris (wow, 12+ is unusual :), Serkan and Nine! - Micah
Micah.. I told you I take my likes seriously; ). You *might* want to ask (in a separate post) what percentage of likes were used to "bookmark" a post or save it for later VS actually "liking it". I NEVER used like for that.. but I did use a private group that if filled with my own topics (and comments).. - Chris Myles
1.78 (8529/4782) - Micah
Likes are down relative to comments, which matches my much lower frequency of liking. I'm a more selective liker than ever. - Micah
I don't think I could argue that any particular kind of ratio is "best", because if Lurkers like to Lurk and cultivate (via Likes) and the Chatty-ites love to chat, to pump out much many more comments than Likes, each can be happy and make for a great social experience. - Micah
383/372 - Ashish
'Just clicking "Like" seems too easy' — Jason, that's because you're from the Chatty-ite tribe :) - Micah
Thanks, ashish. - Micah
wow, what a difference time makes, when i 1st posted on this thread, 6.43%, now = 1.25%, for a 5.18% difference, :o (and this is the earliest post to date i've recovered of my activity on ff) - chaz2b
chaz, I think there's been a big fluctuation for most people (maybe not that much). This is the oldest post on which you commented that you've recovered? - Micah

Thanks, Bren. - Micah
Thank you, Alex :) - Micah
that was my third post... It's interesting to see how the number has changed. of course, I manipulated the number to a degree, because I stopped "liking" things for a while... - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist
Bren, the other thing that can seriously throw off someone's stats is a feed that upon each item it imports adds a comment automatically. - Micah
true. that can seriously inflate comment stats, of course. Then you have someone like RAPatton, who posts a gazillion comments, in part because of his playlist posts where he will list each song in a separate comment. I found, after this post in fact, that I tended to "like" things much more frequently than comment on them, that I was lurking instead of participating. I have changed the way I use ff rather considerably, and I think for the better. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist
Thanks, Sarah, Tutivillus. - Micah

Can you direct me to the worst library website you've seen? Looking for an academic library, but will take other examples. My Google-fu is failing me.
Here's what one person thinks! http://twitter.com/AngieGi... - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
I love the folks at UW-Oshkosh, so I feel like a traitor, but: http://www.uwosh.edu/library/ - RepoRat
And if you want a nice linkfarm, http://library.uwsp.edu/ - RepoRat
This guy doesn't name names, but I wonder if you could figure out who he's talking about? http://roddymacleod.wordpress.com/2010... - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
Like Oshkosh, we're doing a re-design soon, but our site is terri-bad: http://www.uwlax.edu/murphyl... - Jen
Gotta admit, when I encounter a blog that's light-grey type on a dark-grey background, I take the advice on bad websites with a whole bushel of salt. Or would, if I was even willing to punish my eyes all the way through. - Walt Crawford
So one criteria for the worst website is number of links on the home page? we have 18 links, 13 buttons, not counting search tabs and menubar (mouse over drop down menu) - aaron
I think UW-Oshkosh best illustrates my point. Thanks, all! - Holly's favorite Anna
Aaron, we've got you beat by a mile for links. I remember counting 50 links on it a few years ago, and I thinks some have been added since then... I'd never suggest that it's among the worst library websites out there, though. http://scc.losrios.edu/~librar... - JffKrlsn
Right. Is not just the number of links. I wouldn't suggest ours is among the worst either. At least the current version. But i think our libguides home might almost rank as that and it's mostly my fault. - aaron
regarding that blog post, apart from gray on black problems, there's this: libraries that don't have a discovery layer are just plain stupid. "If finances are so bad, and there’s no other viable way, they should get rid of a member of library staff and invest instead in improving the services that are actually needed." Because as we all know, Primo and Summon work without any need for staff whatsoever. - barbara fister
...and that member of the library staff certainly isn't responsible for any services that are actually needed. :-/ - Catherine Pellegrino
ours is.... not so good. library.illinois.edu - Sarah
Might a before/after look help? See: http://library.temple.edu (before) and http://pine.library.temple.edu (after - not completely there yet) Tried to move from link overkill to most important stuff you need and more visual content - steven bell

Am I Right or Not time: I was thinking about buying a piece of software for $250. Company's policy (and DRM) restricts it to 2 computers (I have 2 desktops + a laptop which I use regularly).
I wrote customer service twice, and was told, sorry, no exceptions... but you can put it on a USB drive to get around the restriction. So my question, before I include this company in a subsequent rant on my blog: am I being unreasonable in my request and my frustration? Related question: is this type of restriction typical? (two concurrent installs, no exceptions) - Adam Lasnik
Yes, that's normal. For instance, with Microsoft Office, you can install it on a desktop system and a laptop, but you can't use it on both places at the same time. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
The dilemma is -- since this is an information retrieval / organizer type product -- I really want/need it on my home, work, and laptop computers. I apparently can't do this unless I pay for two licenses ($500 instead of $250) or use the lame workaround of a USB key, with which I risk losing my data if I don't back it up all the time. To clarify, I don't want to use the software concurrently, I want it *installed* concurrently (e.g., don't want to have to install/uninstall every day). - Adam Lasnik
And torque, that's an interesting question. I think it's the principle even more than the money. I believe they're restricting it to two installs to prevent piracy, prevent people from sharing the software with a buddy and splitting the cost. I resent the lack of trust, especially after I wrote a nice note to customer service. I'm used to the honor system with software purchases, though admittedly, most of my purchases have been in the <$100 range the last years - Adam Lasnik
I've also seen where you have to go through customer service, and if you pass the smell test, they'll give you another license (on the assumption, I guess, that people pirating the software will just bittorrent stuff and won't bother contacting customer support). - Adam Lasnik
Careful with what you install on your work computer. Software companies frequently have different licensing for applications that are being used "for business." - EricaJoy
I was actually thinking of a different but related issue, Erica, which is why I didn't plan on putting work-related stuff in the program... which also means that (in good faith) I'd be still using it for personal stuff. - Adam Lasnik
I dunno, I've bought single licenses that allow for install on a second machine provided it's primarily used only by moi. So your scenario seems like that to me, just with the extra machine. And since you can't, without some really impressive juggling, use all three licenses at once, I don't fully understand why they want to make you buy two. I don't think they'd really be losing money by letting you do what you want. - Jaemi Kehoe
And in the event that you ever had a FOURTH machine, you might be more likely to buy another license if you were pleased with them. - Jaemi Kehoe
torque, I'm glad you like this conversation! I really do respect and appreciate the tough decisions that companies have to make when they've invested so much time and money into making a product that many might simply grab without paying for. In fact, while I'd typically shout "remove the DRM, dammit!", I then get jolted into reality when I read about how jerks have pirated even an amazing $20 game by an indie developer http://bit.ly/VQug :\. - Adam Lasnik
If you do the install on a USB key, why do you have to keep the data on it? You weren't going to put the data on the flash drive if you installed the app on three different hard drives, were you? I would think something happening to the flash drive would lose that installation of the program, not the unique data, itself. Seems to me the solution would be to buy a new USB drive and do a new install. - MiniMage
Ah, very good point, MiniMage! Hadn't thought of that (I planned to keep the data files on Dropbox). Still, though, would be kinda a pain to always carry around the USB stick, not to mention be constantly plugging it in and out, no? - Adam Lasnik
Yes, that would be a pain. Do they license server installs? Do you have a server that could serve apps? - MiniMage
How on earth is a server going to help if the laptop is remote??? And I feel you Adam. - Roberto Bonini
If the licensing isn't differentiated, a server install could serve two computers at work, and the standalone at home could be the second install. Now, if two computers are remote, I suppose it won't help much; it'd probably be slow as molasses via VPN. Of course, I'm speculating about stuff I don't really know about; I'm just a desktop tech. I use server apps; I don't get to install/support them. That privilege is reserved for people other organizations have trained. :( - MiniMage
Licenses for similar software are similarly restrictive. The one for OneNote for example can go on 3 computers if you have the Student Edition, right? Lot of software isn't that upfront either; you find out when you activate that you can't take it with you. Honestly, i was happy to see my $250 got me two licenses: that's just 125/install instead of 250/install... TheBrain is well worth it & they've seen there product stolen already so... - Ruud Hein
It's interesting to ponder how the situation might be different if the software in question were a service (web-based or otherwise). Granted, you'd probably be paying per unit time, but there would be no question of "which" machine it was installed on -- probably just a prohibition on running it simultaneously on a single account. I've never understood why more desktop software vendors don't do that; perhaps just that people are used to paying a single fee for installed software? - Joel Webber
Ruud, I think that that model isn't going to survive. Young people today aren't (IMHO) buying office, buying PersonalBrain. They're doing everything online, where there are monthly fees (use anywhere) or no fees (directly or indirectly advertiser sponsored). I'm 37, and in all my geekiness and all my software/service experiences, I can't recall a single instance of a program that has such strictly limited installs. iTunes/Rhapsody songs are... 3 or 5 computers? Even even that DRM seems on the way out. - Adam Lasnik
I just don't think people, especially young people, can even fathom pay-by-install. And Joel, as for pay-per-use-hour, that's an intriguing idea, but IMHO also doomed to failure. For many products, the more use = the more one sees the value = the more evangelism. Pay-by-hour seems like such a relic of the time when computing power / bandwidth was crazy-expensive. In today's multi-tasking world, it'd also be infuriating (how many of us dedicate 100% of our personal CPUs to one web/software app at a time? :P - Adam Lasnik
Agreed: I think the software-sales model is broke - dot. Subscription is the way to go although in the Evernote forum some discuss how *that* keeps them hostage... I think PB should let me do with the install as I wish -- but failing that I do think they have the right ... and that it's worth it. - Ruud Hein
I can get two hamburgers for $2.50, should I steal a third one? Seriously Adam, it doesn't really matter if the model is broken or not, if software licensing has a future or not, those are just the restrictions that they have. It's how they have built their licensing system (and software costs money to make :-), especially software that is not used by gazillions of people). Going from... more... - John Mueller
John, normally I respect your brilliance, but I gotta heartily disagree with your analogies and reasoning here. 1) Hamburgers cost per item. Software does not. It would not cost the company any more if I used it on 3 computers instead of 2. In fact, their revenue would increase by possibly $250 ;). 2) I wasn't advocating a move from $ to ads. As I noted, I'm quite happy to pay for software and have done so frequently. 3) I see absolutely no relationship between size of a company and licensing model. - Adam Lasnik
Actually, hamburgers cost close to nothing per item; It does however cost quite a bit to be able to sell them to you. The thing is, these companies have built their business on being able to sell you a license for a certain number of computers. You might not like that model, but that's the way they are calculating costs, the way they're paying for overhead and the ability to provide the... more... - John Mueller
I used to run a software company so it's something I spent a lot of time on :-). Changing a licensing model is a lot of work and you can't just say $X/2PCs/user is unfair compared to $Y/user or $Z/year. In the end, the overhead (of creating, distributing & supporting the software) has to be paid for just the same -- how it's split up is (simplified) based on marketing. Marketing changes... more... - John Mueller
To clarify, John, while I have to admit to some temptation to bittorrenting in this case, I wasn't seriously planning (and do not plan) to violate the license agreement. Rather, I plan on not further evaluating the software and simply finding an alternative. And despite your arguments, I still think it's a lousy marketing decision, a lousy way to calculate costs. I mean, they could say "People should pay based upon the sum of the letters in their last name" and I'd see that as only slightly less arbitrary. - Adam Lasnik
This sort of thing makes my head hurt. There was a time, until recently, where My husband and I each had a desktop and a laptop. We like to travel, so we needed some software on our laptops. It was frustrating to run into this situation where we'd have the software on one laptop and one desktop. That meant a lot of switching seats in the office and travel sucked because we'd have to trade off laptop tops to finish our projects. This is one of the reasons we're trending more open source and cloud for our biz - Anika
I agree, Adam, in your case it sucks and to be honest, in your situation I'd think twice about it too. I don't think there is ever a perfect licensing model. When we sold software for $2000/user, we'd get people who say they're only working part-time and couldn't we give them a discount, etc. Sure, if you're working 30% it seems really unfair to pay the same as someone who's working... more... - John Mueller
I just noticed sharing files through dropbox is not working any more. I used to share free version files through dropbox, but recently found that all the links to pages drag-and-dropped into the app won't save the URL as it used to. And it won't even let you copy-paste the link into the Notes – whatever you posted disappears in a matter of seconds if you're adding it on one computer (at work) and forgot to close it leaving home. Their licensing really sucks. - earlyadopter

Tanabata – Festival of Star Crossed Lovers | Japan | Japan Travel | Nihon Sun
"Separated by the milky way, two star crossed lovers are only able to meet once a year on the seventh day of the seventh month based on the lunisolar calendar. The legend of Hikoboshi (the star known as Alter) and Orihime (the star known as Vega) has roots in China but has been associated with Japan’s Tanabata festival since the sixth century." - Jenny H. from Bookmarklet
"Orihime, the daughter of Emperor Tentei, was a skilled weaver and made lovely clothes for her father. On day as she sat alongside the the river of heaven ( amanogawa – the milky way) she was overcome with sadness as she had been so busy with her weaving that she hadn’t had time to fall in love. Tentei, believed to be the ruler of the heavens, witness her woeful state and arranged a... more... - Jenny H.
"The Tanabata festival (also know as the star festival) celebrates the reuniting of these lovers separated by the milky way and the word tanabata can be translated as “weaving with the loom (bata) placed on the shelf (tana)”. During the Tanabata festival sprigs of bamboo, sometimes small and sometimes the size of a tree, are hung with tanzuku, papers upon people write their wishes. Traditionally people wish for improved technical skills and abilities in homage to the legend of Hikoboshi and Orihime." - Jenny H.
Did you ever see the photos I took of our Tanabata Festival here? That was a fun time. Do they have a festival where you live? - Anika
I didn't, Anika, but I saw there was a page for it on FB when I was researching. I don't think we have a large enough Asian population for this festival, but I would love to attend one day. Do you have a link to your photos? - Jenny H.

Nice article.

Traditionally people wish for improved technical skills and abilities in homage to the legend of Hikoboshi and Orihime." - Bruce Lewis
So, it's a year later and I came across this post and realized you asked for pics of the Tanabata festival here. It seems I either missed it or the comment was deleted, so here are my pictures from the festival in Little Tokyo: http://www.flickr.com/... - Anika

The only thing I really found myself thinking about during this morning's root canal was: how did they cram all this stuff in my mouth? o_O
No. Comment. - Hookuh Tinypants
It's been a really long time since I've seen a dentist and thank the stars for the advances in technology that made the trip pretty effortless. I hope that after my face returns to normal, that any residual pain is fleeting. - Derrick
I recently narrowly escaped a root canal and got away with a filling instead (problem tooth since I was a kid). I too was impressed by the relative quickness and low-level discomfort of the process, despite the fact that lots of things seemed to be coming and going throughout. Wishing you a speedy recovery! Also, ibuprofen. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I have found myself repeating loving-kindness phrases during root canal. keeps the mind busy. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
It's a little tender now that the novocaine's worn off, but certainly much better than the pain I can't believe I've been in for the past month. And yes, I did find myself meditating while I was under the drill. - Derrick
I'm proud of you, Derrick! Great job getting this done. - Stephen Mack
Most common dental procedures (fillings, crowns, root canals) are relatively painless these days -- more annoying than anything else. Ask for steroids (prednisone) to reduce swelling, or at the very least stock up on ibuprofen. - Tudor Bosman
It'll definitely be sore/tender for a day or so (jaw, too, obviously from staying open so long!) but you'll be much happier by comparison. <3 - Lola Bean (Penguin) from iPhone
Thanks, y'all. Tis a little tender but nothing that some ibuprofen won't take care of. Even though he gave me some Vicodin. - Derrick
Aw, I just saw this. I'm glad they gave you the good drugs in case you need them. Take care! - Katy S
I think of all the dental procedure's I've had, and there have been several, this was the most painless and easy going. Glad to have such a great dentist. - Derrick
Heal well, Derrick. :) - edythe from iPhone
Wow. - Derrick
Wouldn't be the first time. - Derrick
And what do I know, I just had a root canal. I should probably stay offline. - Derrick
