(Curtis/Alan) Jackson

Thoughtful of the meaningless, aloof of the important. Always planning change, sometimes implementing. Allons-y!!! ["iphwin" on the IMs.]

Having one of those moments when I am thinking of adding someone to a network outside of FF but not sure if know that person well enough to do so. LinkedIn in this case, but also happens with FB too. As much as I share here, you think it'd be a no-brainer.
If you can be stringent on what you share (FB) as I have many on a restricted list for my normal cat type posts. Only those closest to me or understanding of me get to see the general things. - Janet
It's an odd thing with LinkedIn for me. While I tend to want to connect with people I know from FF to build my network, it seems kind of odd. Of course, if anyone from FF asks to connect I almost always do so. lol - (Curtis/Alan) Jackson

Jeff Daniels - Spidra Webster
D'oh! Of course, now it clicks. Couldn't get Bill Pullman out of my head for some reason. :) - (Curtis/Alan) Jackson
Dave Coulier - Not Me
REMINDER: Crop Out Cancer Challenges! -
Technology is a wonderful thing. Getting some car maintenance done. Wifi in waiting room not working. Activate phone tethering. Boom. Online and doing homework while I wait. We just changed our phone plan a few days ago that allows for this so now I'm super happy. (Not to mention we are saving money.)
Whoops. Spoke too soon about saving money. Guess the front brakes, while they seemed to work fine to me, wouldn't let me pass the VA Safety Inspection. Oh well. - (Curtis/Alan) Jackson
I swear I used to have so much hair that looking at this picture feels like I was wearing a toupee.

Or maybe I just had a bad hairstyle back then. Either or. :) - (Curtis/Alan) Jackson
Look at your hair, boo. ;) - Derrick
I remember back in the day my barber used to tell me that my hair was so think it was a challenge to cut. Hard to believe nowadays. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
You're supposed to be a lot more excited about drawing a Wild card in Uno! - Hookuh Tinypants
First line of spammed "SEO" offer email this morning: "We are a reputed Digital Marketing company." Indeed. Thanks for the heads-up so early in your terribly written email.
"Reputed" can swing both ways. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
As I sit here sipping my coffee, I recall seeing some coffee concentrate at the store during my last visit. Apparently, you use a couple tablespoons and finish off with water or milk for an 8oz cup. Skipping the fact that 8oz isn't what I'd count as a cup, I wonder what would happen if you drank it straight? Probably not tasty but the effects!!! :)
If only my socks could talk.

Oh Darn! See what I did there? - Janet from FFHound!
No holes yet! :P - (Curtis/Alan) Jackson
Having a SNL flashback..........hoser. - Janet
My newly (caffeine) stimulated mind makes wonder. Are there bumper cars in Australia, UK, Japan, etc. and if so, are the steering wheels on the right hand side like this one was?
Yes. Yes. - Johnny from iPhone
Ive been on bumper cars where they place the steering wheel in the middle. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
It's on the right because that's right. - Melly
Yes. Also real cars are bumper cars for most of the Aussie populace >.> - Mo Kargas
bumper cars in NZ, too. if anyone cares. *goes back to eating sand fleas* - Big Joe Silence
Someone appears to run in good circles. :)

Difference between American and British culture. [VIDEO] -
"The American and British cultures have long been known for their stark differences. A glaring example of this became ever more evident recently with Barack Obama, Gordon Brown, and a policeman, in the most unusual way." - (Curtis/Alan) Jackson from Bookmarklet
They say the reason people who drink coffee feel better after a morning cup is due to the "fix" you're getting for your addiction. However, I'm not sure I can imagine feeling this good all the time if I didn't drink caffeine beverages. Or would I just not be able to tell the difference? Hmmm...
An alligator sings a song... [VIDEO] -
I have been told it's in Farsi. I can't say if that's true. I do know that it's pretty well done. - (Curtis/Alan) Jackson

"Physicists working at the Large Hadron Collider have spotted a long sought-after exotic particle that's the strongest evidence yet for a new form of matter called a tetraquark. Here's what the discovery could mean to astrophysics." - (Curtis/Alan) Jackson from Bookmarklet
I looked around for some images of laundry gnomes but they must have been too busy for a picture. How about these instead? :)
the second one there...i think that's what y'all need. - Sir Shuping is just sir
I will have to locate the one of the gnomes eating a lawn flamingo. - Janet

Now that I've heard the complete song, I can hear the sample from Nautilus by Bob James even more. - (Curtis/Alan) Jackson

It just occurred to me that I'm about to be as old as my FidoNet Node number from back in my BBS days.
That funny instance when you're in one Google account and it suggests yourself (in another account) as someone you might know.

Time for some self-reflection. - Micah
can we ever truly know ourselves? - ellbeecee
^ This came to mind, actually. :) - (Curtis/Alan) Jackson
are we, are we, are we ourselves? - Big Joe Silence
You be me for a while and I'll be you. - Jim is digging out. from iPhone

^^12 year old humor. (Well, you know, not that the joke is that old... just that us 12 year olds enjoy it.) - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
That humor seemed aged...and not in the tasty cheese way. :) - (Curtis/Alan) Jackson

Things I dislike #1453: That instant of realization that instead of clicking to an existing tab, you just clicked the "X" to close it. (And the panicked attempt to click on the tab to try and somehow override the action.)
reopen and check history? - Big Joe Silence
There should be an panic override function built into all browsers. - Jim is digging out.
If I'm not mistaken, there is/was an extension for Firefox that allowed you to undelete a tab. But I uninstalled it for some reason, probably because I seem to have to blast all add-ins and extensions periodically when everything slows to a crawl. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Chrome has "reopen last closed tab" or something similar as a right-click function on the tabs bar. I use it quite often. - SAM from iPhone
I thought ctrl-shift-T reopens the last closed tab in most browsers (several in reverse order, on Firefox at least. Possibly all of them, but I've never gone that far.) Long-pressing the new tab button on Dolphin for IPad also reopens the last closed tab. - Andrew C (✔)
Well I'll be jiggered! Both of those just worked for me in Chrome! Somebody ought to 'splain this stuff to me! - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
My wife somehow discovered ctrl-shift-T, which appears to work most everywhere... - Walt Crawford
Being able to bring back the tab in no way lessens the panic/frustration at accidentally closing it. :) - (Curtis/Alan) Jackson
I haven't tested it, but I'm guessing any comment text entered into the text/edit box, but not yet posted, is lost upon tab restoration. That happens ALL THE TIME when I'm using my tablet. One misplaced finger and all is lost in an instant. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
I think Firefox brings back the text box contents, actually. But even if it didn't, I have a Firefox extension that auto-caches text box contents for just such eventualities. - Andrew C (✔)
The oddest things happen on the internet. We just had an online customer yesterday from Eau Claire, Wisconsin and I was "I know that town!". Not saying I know exactly WHERE it is but I recognize the name. :)
In Michigan, I had an out of state call asking for information on the project at (his pronunciation) "Salt Stee Marie." - Betsy
Two hours ago I was going to "Do one little thing on the computer" before hitting the shower. Yeah, that always works out. <sigh>
