I used to have some clever words here. ["iphwin" on the IMs.] Also see (gratuitous plug for wife's papercrafting website)
Personal Drip Coffee Carafe | ThinkGeek -
Personal Drip Coffee Carafe | ThinkGeek
"On the coffee plant, there grow red or purple berries (commonly called cherries). Inside these cherries are seeds (commonly called beans). So, coffee beans are really seeds. This is the reason why, unlike other beans, coffee beans don't make you toot. And now you've learned something. Time to relax now with a steaming cup of coffee. Good thing you have a Personal Drip Coffee Carafe full of it on your desk! The Personal Drip Coffee Carafe is an elegant way to keep some extra coffee around. It's all porcelain (carafe and top) and even comes with a porcelain filter cone. This filter cone accepts #1 filters (not included), which will let you drip coffee straight into the carafe. Pop the top on, and you'll have a nice little pot waiting for your refill needs. The Personal Drip Coffee Carafe - good to the last drip." - (Curtis) Alan Jackson from Bookmarklet
"Broiler safe." I'm not sure I really want to see how you'd make coffee that way, but I'm impressed that you can? - Jennifer Dittrich
The line about "...don't make you toot." is what really sold me. lol - (Curtis) Alan Jackson

While having some random troubles with PayPal in Chrome (but not in Firefox), it makes me wonder if it's time to make Firefox my primary browser again. I actually use both fairly regularly but Firefox seems to be behaving better lately. #randomobservation
Agreed. While Chrome still seems to do a better job of keeping up with web standards, it also seems to surface a lot of odd bugs (especially in javascript) - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

I apparently had not heard of this remake/reboot/refresh/regurgitation. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
There has been the infancy of a viral video campaign in existence for 9 or so months now. I read an article back then with a producer that said they didn't want to go to hard to early and be written off a hacky rehash. Given the glut of blockbuster movies coming out right now, they wanted a solid trailer with all the SFX nailed down and smack it hard leading into Xmas. - Johnny

Is it wrong to respond to an email that about a year and a half old? Technically, I was supposed to respond when I found out some specific information which I finally did this morning. I'm guessing probably not. I'm very sure the position has been filled by now but since I was pretty far along in the hiring process, I feel obligated to respond.
BAH! I just learned that they cancelled my security upgrade process. It appears I wasn't denied the upgrade but that the "Customer" cancelled the process before completion. Definitely deflating as I had been mostly treading water until that was complete. Time to hit the virtual bricks because I'm ready to move from my current job to something else.
While I'm trying to comfort myself with "at least I know now", it's not the same as "You're approved!" would be. :) Not the end of the world and now I can get some focus in my work life as to where I can/want to go. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Not content to buy a ready-made Advent Calendar, my wife is in the process of building an Advent House. OBTW, the top comes off to store albums that she'll also create. #marriedtoacrafter

"Scientists used to think that things were pretty chill over in the south hemisphere of Uranus. In fact, they thought it was one of the calmest regions of any of the gas giants. But in analyzing images taken nearly three decades ago by NASA's Voyager-2 spacecraft, researchers think they've found a kerfuffle of activity — which might indicate that there's something unusual about the planet's interior." - (Curtis) Alan Jackson from Bookmarklet

Which House Is Right For You? -
Which House Is Right For You?
"The Sater Design Collection's "Ferretti" home is just right for you! You are a romantic and charming person. Your ideal day would be spent indoors or on a balcony overlooking a lovely view with a good book and a glass of wine. You also like to entertain. The Ferretti's outdoor courtyard is perfect for just that!" - (Curtis) Alan Jackson from Bookmarklet
Huh. I actually don't hate the look of that. :) - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
I got Duvall St, a beach cottage. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
"The Sater Design Collection's "Dune Ridge" is right for you! You love the outdoors and enjoy spending your time out in nature. You are more of an introvert and prefer to stay at home enjoying a fire or building something with your hands. You need a home that is rustic and cozy. " - bentley
"The Sater Design Collection's "Moderno" home plan is just right for you! You are a blend of modern sophistication. You are a very rational person and do not like wasting time. Instead, you would rather get straight to the point. You prefer your life and your home to be structured and organized." - Soup in a TARDIS
Tam, that's really cute! :) - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Soup, I expected to get something like the "Moderno" but apparently I answered the questions wrong. :P - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
bentley, I wonder if the harp in the pictures comes with the house or you have to buy it yourself? :) - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Since it is says I'd prefer to stay at home building something with my own hands, I guess I'll have to build it myself. The harp, that is. - bentley
I'm not surprised I got it, CAJ. It is def. more my style - Soup in a TARDIS
I got custom home and the funny thing? We built a custom home 20 years ago. - Janet
That's pretty cool! I know this was some blatant advertising by that company but I always like looking at various styles of house. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
I got the Ferretti as well.It's wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy too big, I don't wanna clean all that!!! ;o) - Melly - #TeamMarina
Duvall St is way more my thing. - Melly - #TeamMarina
I got Ferretti. That pool area...oh my. I like Duvall Street a lot, though. Perfect beach house. - Corinne L
The Moderno is gorgeous too, especially the canals setting. I could definitely see this house along the canals in Venice Beach or Long Beach. - Corinne L

What Career Are You Meant For?
"You are a very analytic, calculated and smart. Your thirst for knowledge knows no boundaries, you always question everything and are always looking for something new to explore. You were meant to invent and discover new things this world has never known before." - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
"Social Activist: You are a very emotional, ambitious and stubborn person. In the past, these traits got you in a lot of trouble, but now you can actually make a huge difference in this world thanks to them. You were meant to take what you've learned so far in life and use it to help others in need" - Soup in a TARDIS
Mine was writer, but the phone won't let me cut and paste the text. - LB snowed in. from Android
Scientist here too. - Mark H
"Therapist:You are a very warm, compassionate and sensitive person. You like to help others in need, and inspire others with your work. You were meant to better people's lives and make them happier" Not too far off from my career. - Janet

I actually preferred Karen Gillan as Nebula over her character on Selfie. (I also learned that Selfie isn't getting a full season. (So not immediately canceled but still very short.))
Show all
Interestingly, she's wearing a wig of her own hair in Selfie. Guess it didn't go to waste preparing for Nebula. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
I didn't know she was in Selfie. Also didnt know about the wig hair, but I like that she kept the hair. - bentley
As a spin-oFF from another post, who here goes by their middle name primarily? My parents always called me by my middle name, "Alan", and never by my first name. They were never sure how that got started. :)
Adam does. His first name is Paul but like you, his parents never called him that. He's always gone by his middle name, Adam. - Tamara J. B.
I do. Full name: Todd Brent Schaus. I grew up going by "Todd", but started going by my middle name as a sign of a fresh start. My grandfather was known as C. Roy Tilley. Precedent. - Brent Schaus from iPhone
I do. I have the same first name as my mom's. If I'd been a boy, I would've shared my dad's first name. I once found my mom's diary from before I was born, and she refers to me by both my boy and girl middle names. So I guess I was always meant to go by my middle name. - bentley
I do. Stephen is my middle name. Danger is my other middle name. - Stephen Mack
my oldest brother is an Allan who goes by his middle name. His first name was the same as our dad's, so brother became Allan. - ellbeecee
I do. I'm having such trouble with inflexibility on the part of bureaucracies who buy CRAPPY software and then do what the software tells them that I'm thinking I'm going to have to pay to get my name legally changed. - Spidra Webster

Sometimes the picture doesn't exactly match the ad.
I think it's the perfect picture for the ad. It gets their target demographic to pay attention. - bentley
Oh, that's a perspective I hadn't considered. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson

"So you love sriracha. Who doesn't? But unfortunately, not every establishment keeps this famed rooster sauce on hand for the chili enthusiast. Sriracha2Go solves this problem by making it easy to carry your own with you wherever you go. Measuring 4.5 inches by 1.6 inches, this small container holds 1.25 ounces of the delicious red stuff, and includes a built-in clip for attaching it to a keychain, bag, or belt loop" - (Curtis) Alan Jackson from Bookmarklet
