Time for a cat scan! - Jemm
Iz I the right way up for printing? - Vicky
This is clearly not my cat. If this was my cat he's have one arm shoved down into the printer trying to tear up all the internal whirling bits with his bare claws. - Soup in a TARDIS
LOL, Soup! - Kol Tregaskes
Too Funny! Reminds me of the San Mateo Cat Shelter where one of the cats loves to sleep on top of the laster printer where the paper comes out... - Greg Lato

this is underfaksink at its worzt - pb:
Petr, I have no idea what you mean, but thank you. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
@Kol .. :] that, partially, might have been the purpose.... I don't know it exactly either. :] .. was I reflecting on a cat under the fax, and that it is hard to fax that way ... /?:] ... "underfaxing at its worst" .. - pb:
Ah, OK, Petr. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
there ya have me ! :] .... see, to be honest with you, i saw this pic couple days ago, but i let it go, without posting it ..... what does that make me? :] - pb:
OMGosh, just 23 more likes to beat this: http://beta.friendfeed.com/imified... ;-) - Kol Tregaskes

Freemor, yes very cute! :-D - Kol Tregaskes

Just 5 more likes needed. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
Fax, Petr. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
even a flat cat... faxes just can't handle the hair. You'd have to shave the cat first, else the hair will burn and stick to the drum... a mess! (I am extrapolating from transparencies, mind, i don't have access to a cat to test) - Iphigenie
Hehe, Joelle. This is now tied for the 'likes' top stop. One more then, hehe. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
Hehe, Greg. Blimey! Erm, is that not far from 500 likes now? ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
Bloody marvelous, Kol. Wish I could like it again... too cute (and help u to 500 likes). - Roberto Bonini
I couldn't believe it when I logged on from the morning over posting it and saw it was at something 200 likes! You all have a strange fetish with cats and fax machines, hehe. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
Am I the only one who saw this and their first thought was - My goodness did someone break that cats neck? It still freaks me out a little - Steve C
Steve, it does look a little out of place, but cats are pretty bendy. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
They fax much better if you flatten them first. What? - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
LOL, Kevin. - Kol Tregaskes
i can also imagine the cat going there cause it is snug and warm - Iphigenie
Ey, it would be a tad warm on there, especially after a long working day. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
Caption which needs to be said aloud: Uh Ohz, I'm totally FAXED! - sofarsoShawn
Hehe, Shawn. 10 more for the big 5-0-0. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
Countdown! 8 more now! - Mike Nayyar

WHOA! Cool! - AJ Batac
awesome! - siniradam
you just made my color blind self cry tears of joy - I can now click that to discover all of the links that some crazy color mad designer has "hidden" from me by their color choices - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
is there a bookmarklet to make hackernews look good on the iphone? - Ivan Kirigin
Add this to FriendFeed and you've got Wave :-) - Jesse Stay
Reminds me somewhat of ClutterMe http://www.clutterme.com/ - they figured out how to make a whole page in-place-editable (javascript of course) - just click anywhere and start typing: http://www.clutterme.com/pages... - Christopher Galtenberg
Nice, discover links obscured by CSS - Orlando Pozo
Cute trick. Not being familiar with java script (at all) what is the void%200 statement there for? - Eric Borisch
Without the void 0, the browser will navigate to a page showing the result of the computation. - Paul Buchheit
Not grasping the %200, though - Rahsheen
But that's not the case when I just execute it in the (safari) address bar. I take it that's expected? - Eric Borisch
%20 is a space. I'm not sure about safari -- I use ff. - Paul Buchheit
Cool. This + FB + malcontents + screenshots = ??? - Eric Borisch
What is this supposed to do again ?-- it does nothing that I can discern in IE, FF or Chrome (on Vista). - Brian Sullivan
OK I see what it does on FF. - Brian Sullivan
But only in FireFox presumably? - Brian Sullivan
It works on IE - AJ Batac
So it does -- first time I tried IE8 crashed. - Brian Sullivan
Works in Chrome, too - Jan Ole Peek
It doesn't seem to work in 4.0.223.11 - Brian Sullivan
I'm still on Chrome 3.0.195.27 but it says no update detected... this is in Win7. Pretty sure my OSX Chrome is 4.0.223.11 though. - Jan Ole Peek
4.0.223.11 is the latest in the dev stream. - Brian Sullivan
Works on Chrome Mac version here. I added the script as a new bookmark in the menu. - Jesper Lind
Try this instead to avoid the %20 weirdness: javascript:void(document.body.contentEditable=(document.body.contentEditable!='true')) - Matt M (inactive)
Doesn't seem to work either -- maybe a bug in the dev version? - Brian Sullivan
World's coolest bookmarklet, especially those who are creating demo apps. - Mike Reynolds
Wow, this is awesome (works perfectly for me in Firefox 3.5). Simple Bookmarklet code that makes Web pages "editable". Now if only there were save + back buttons or something = Instant Wiki. - Alex Schleber
this is the fundamental line of every wysiwyg editor you use. for IE use allowEdit - Tzury Bar Yochay
Clicking it a second time makes it un-editable (and therefore it should respond to events and such). - Paul Buchheit

Microsoft Courier makes Apple Tablet look silly - http://www.examiner.com/x-8134-...
Microsoft Courier makes Apple Tablet look silly
"You may already be asking yourself why. Well, for one, the Microsoft Courier actually exists and two, wait until you see what Microsoft has cooked up." - Jemm from Bookmarklet
I like the actually exists part. that has to be a pretty big selling feature. - Kenton
@Kenton: That usually gives an edge. Though if Apple announced that their iTablet is available for pre-order with only some teaser-logo to show and an one-liner that bashes Microsoft, it would probably outsell due to the dedicated fan-base. ;) - Jemm
LOL, good point. - Kenton
Hehe I love how something that doesn't exist makes something that doesn't exist look silly. - Rodfather
+1 Rodfather - ronin
Actually, Apple would sell because they have a track record of shipping. How many times have we drooled over some tech demo by Microsoft, yet could never actually use it? - Lon
Well, Apple tablet rumors have been going on since 2002 or earlier. I'll believe it when I see it. Same with the Courier. - Rodfather
Is it just me or is naming it after an iconic fixed-width font a bad idea? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I don't like the fold out idea at all. - RAPatton
@Stephen: Don't worry - that's probably just a code name. Their marketing probably comes up with a name like Microsoft Wireless Mobile Notebook Ultimate 2010... :) - Jemm
I don't think anyone doubts that some sort of Apple Tablet is on the way. Anyway I'm more likely to get that thing than an iTablet. - Amit Morson
There is something that both tablets have in common: I will not be able to afford either one. - Fleagle
I'm much more intrigued at Courier than the rumor of what Apple's Tablet will look like. Not least of which because I think that pen+fingers is an awesome input paradigm (and I can use it -- among other things -- as an infinite sketchbook). I hope that it's got good pressure sensitivity. And Stephen, they might be naming it after the more traditional meaning of courier as in messenger. - Chieze Okoye
That said, Fleagle's point is a very good one. - Chieze Okoye
The UI mockups were very intriguing, but, come on people, this is all vapor ware until we get a product announcement at LEAST. - Mike Nayyar
That said, if it's announced at CES, WANT - Mike Nayyar
haha, indeed. - Chieze Okoye
The dual screen "book" format has a lot of advantages. particularly if you could fold it in half and just work off one screen at a time. Say for watching a movie or reading. - Eoghann Irving

Google Voice: New, Improved, & Still Disappointing
Thx for liking, but I simply MUST insist that you also weigh in! I want to get some good Google Voice info out of your comments... here, on the Current.com page, Facebook, whatever. - Sarah Lane
What, you gonna deny a poor little woman with a brain tumor? I think not. ;) - Sarah Lane
Also! My Google Voice number is in this segment for all to admire. And so's my cell phone number, but I tried pretty hard to blur that one out. :) - Sarah Lane
I have some good stuff, will post tomorrow during the living hours. - Eric - Watch Me Now from iPhone
Sorry, Sarah - can't be monitoring FF *all* the time... :) I honestly haven't used Google Voice much for some of the same reasons you mentioned. For some reason my number is firmly stuck in my head, but I haven't given it out to many folks (more out of laziness than anything, since my friends all have my cell number already). Haven't run into the issue with voicemail (even though I have... more... - Thomas
Sarah - you're right - it pretty much sucks if you don't give out your Google Voice number. The lack of Visual Voicemail integration is also a big let-down. I've experimented with it by distributing my GV number to Facebook contacts who I don't want stalking me (I made a group for them). I've found that the inbound calling, and SMS forwarding is really cool and works flawlessly. Outbound calling and voicemails requires a visit to the GV mobile page (which I keep open in Safari on my iPhone). - Ankush Narula
Thinking about it some more, I can see a use where you give the GV number to all your creditors and potential telemarketers. I use my land line for that now, but eventually I want to get rid of that. Another use - if you want a number in a different area code. As someone who wants to eventually sell a screenplay, it might behoove me at some point to get a number in the 310 area code to... more... - Thomas
One more thing. Here are a couple of useful links I found courtesy of LifeHacker: Making the Transition - http://lifehacker.com/5311254... and Potentially getting unlimited calls with GV - http://lifehacker.com/5382770... I'll need to try out both... :) - Thomas
awesome, thx for those Thomas! - Sarah Lane
I love Sarah because she hasn't abandoned FriendFeed like the rest of the geeks. Keep using it Sarah! I'm even more a follower now than ever. - Jesse Stay
Happy to help :) - Thomas from FreshFeed
I agree that giving it to people who I really don't want to have my number is nice. If you don't really want to hear from them, just let it go to voice mail. And if you do, no worries, you can add them to your friend group. Also if you're in some networking environment, you really don't have to worry about who exactly you give your number out to. I did try to tie it to my Skype account but it did not like that at all. - Jerry Perez
I like GV's send to VM between certain times. So when I sleep I don't have to hear a phone ring unless so are so important to me I allow your call to come through. This way I can sleep but still receive potentially emergency phone calls. Also, I have used one is a home phone replacement so if people call it, it will ring my phones, my gf, and the kids. And I can see other great... more... - Philip Griego
I'm using Google Voice and like it. It's still better than the crappy voicemail from the cable company or cell phone company. I don't have any app to run it on my phone and don't need one. I voice dial to get the messages. Works great. - Dave Friedel
I use GV as the voice mail for my Podcast. Works great for that. Also use it for all of my phones, ...well, that is mmm, okay. I really wish it was a bit more flexible. - ‘-.-’ Tutivillus Grift
Hate the lack of support to visual voicemail and that I have to go to Google Voice's page to make a call if I want my number to show on outbound calls. LOVE the fact that I can give my GV # to potential employers so they don't have to worry about reaching a number I'm not at. - ChiliMac
If I could get Google voice to just let voicemails go to my IPhone I'd be happy. - ChiliMac
The real feature for GV is small business. So many telcos have SMBs over a barrel with terrible features. These people can't afford a PBX with forward and follow features. They could hook up a GV number, including their established line, and allow for forwards to any number, without the need to put 5 different numbers on their business cards. This is really a killer feature, and visual voicemail won't matter to those people. (also posted to current) - Eric - Watch Me Now
I'm probably a minority here, but since I have an Android phone I'll chime in: GV works like a charm (including masking my number on outbound calls/sms) using the GV app for my phone. - FFing Enigma
Favorite Google Voice feature: voicemail transcription sent to my cell via SMS and/or email. - Shea from BuddyFeed

Did Apple Just Lie to the FCC? - http://www.windowsitpro.com/Article...
Its a lawyer talking, of course they lied. In a legal way of course. Google said "Apple did not approve the app". Apple says "we did not reject it (yet). Difference of semantics? - Steve Dickey
Wait, what??? I don't get it. - Roberto Bonini

Constantly refreshing Twitter to see if the ddos attack is over probably isn't helping matters.
But somebody has to be the first one to tweet: "Twitter is back up!" ;) - Jemm
I'm surprised friendfeed has been able to stay up with all the extra traffic! - Craig Shipp
The constant refreshing is a IDoS - Idiot Denial of Service - or OCDDoS - Obsessive/Compulsive Disorder Denial of Service... See it quite often in the aftermath of a prime site outage... - Robert J Taylor from iPhone

update 11:20am EST: @biz ---> Thursday, August 06, 2009 Denial of Service Attack On this otherwise happy Thursday morning, Twitter is the target of a denial of service attack. Attacks such as this are malicious efforts orchestrated to disrupt and make unavailable services such as online banks, credit card payment gateways, and in this case, Twitter for intended customers or users. We are defending against this attack now and will continue to update our status blog as we continue to defend and later investigate. http://blog.twitter.com/2009... - Susan Beebe

Who owns my content on Twitter? If another company creates something out of my Tweet can I sue them? Can Twitter sue them?
So, let's look at WallTweets, or Threadless, who have the potential of taking my Tweets and turning them into T-shirts or stickers. If they create one without my permission with my content, do I have the right to sue them for copyright infringement? - Jesse Stay
Interesting... I just got a DM from walltweets saying they created a sticker out of one of my Tweets. It made me think about this. - Jesse Stay
Well I assume if you own the Tweets you have the right to set your licensing terms. - Jesse Stay
I wonder if I should slam a CC license on my tweets strean? - Mathew A. Koeneker
Mathew, CC has a Facebook app just for that on Facebook profiles. Check out mine: http://jessestay.socialtoo.com - Jesse Stay
Uh oh - is there a rebellion coming? Where's MG? ;-) - Jesse Stay
I must be missing it where do I find it on that page? - Mathew A. Koeneker
No, Jesse's page on FB. I read the Twitter TOS and RSS my Tweets into my Evernote account but does the Twitter TOS explain how to apply a Creative Commons license to your content? - Mathew A. Koeneker
Mathew, hmm, I must have removed it for some reason. Do a search on "Creative Commons" on facebook and you should be able to find it. - Jesse Stay
It has been a few days since a last visited Mr. Lessig's site. I shall get on that. :-) - Mathew A. Koeneker
Please, steal my content. Just credit me, that's all. - Mark Davidson from BuddyFeed
That is the beauty to Creative Commons licenses. Sharing with attribution. :-) - Mathew A. Koeneker
You can copyright text if it contains at least a minimum amount of original expression in tangible form. Short quips and phrases can not be copyrighted. This causes comedians some headaches, much of their material does not enjoy copyright protection. It is likely that tweets do not have copyright protection, creative commons or otherwise, and are in the public domain. http://www.iptrademarkattorney.com/2008... - DGentry
Copyright exists to protect ownership of works distributed in public. If you never publish anything publicly, you don't need copyright you just need good locks. Nonetheless I don't think tweets can be copyrighted, as they are too short to qualify for copyright protection (see 2 comments ago). - DGentry
Lelapin, quite the opposite. "When is my work protected? Your work is under copyright protection the moment it is created and fixed in a tangible form that it is perceptible either directly or with the aid of a machine or device." http://www.copyright.gov/circs... - Mark Davidson
This issue has been very well discussed by WIPO Magazine "Are tweets copyright-protected ?" http://tinyurl.com/l66qty - S.I.Lex (Calimaq)
Since I am am avowed Lessig disciple, what are ya'll's thoughts on the Creative Commons project? - Mathew A. Koeneker
You can declare a Creative Commons license for your tweets here: http://www.tweetcc.com/ - Kevin Gamble
