Appreciating folks' warnings re: House of Cards spoilers, as I'm watching next weekend instead.
Meg VMeg
At some point, doesn't it make more sense to re-number the doors?
That is...... wow. - Micah from FFHound!
On first blush you'd think what's stopping them from renumerating? Well, perhaps a lot. To deviate from the construction drawings numbers could mean the fire alarm zone labelling would mismatch, along with other infrastructure references and so on. A pricey change. - Micah from FFHound!
So it's the architect's fault? - Meg VMeg
well, there are only five rooms affected by the strange numbering. And I'm willing to bet that this happened because a circular hall got sealed up at the far end for some reason. - DJF
Interesting theory, I'll look for a floor map on my way out. - Meg VMeg
Nope, I blame the architect: - Meg VMeg
Interesting. After looking at the dropbox image I think the architect followed standard methodology. Odds on one side, evens other side of corridor ascending from the main entrance point. The wayfinding sign is the weak link, that can certainly be improved. Here's some bedtime reading: - Micah from FFHound!
Seems like they should have looked where the main elevator would be, then do ascending/descending on either side of that (and have however they wanted to handle even/odd be secondary, I've seen it both ways). How would you improve the sign? The sign is accurate, is the problem, in my mind. - Meg VMeg
Oh, maybe what you're not seeing in the dropbox image is that they started numbering from the emergency stairs, at the far end of the floor. Not from the (only) elevator which is nearest to rooms 316-317. - Meg VMeg
To me the sign would be quicker to decipher like this: << ODD 301-321 EVEN 302-320 ... ODD 323-345 EVEN 322-340 >> - Micah

RT @krinkle8: Someone pointed out that "oh my god, becky, look at her butt" passes the bechdel test and I haven't stopped laughing for a week
Unfortunately, it doesn't :( "Oh my god, Becky, look at her butt: it's so big. *She looks like one of those rap guys 'girlfriends But, you know, who understands those rap guys? They only talk to her, because, she looks like a total prostitute.*". - Mark Trapp

I can no longer remember which symbol to use for links and which for attachments when I'm writing an email in Gmail.
I agree. For me, it's made worse by the fact that they have an option in settings to use text instead of icons for button labels that doesn't apply there (or in a lot of other places). - Mark Trapp
I have this problem every time. It's as bad as plugging in usb upside down. - Amit Patel
I thought I was the only one that time after time confuses these. Nice things not having this is why! - Micah from FFHound!
Fist bumps all around. - Corinne L
Made that exact mistake yesterday when typing an email in the native gmail interface. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Wooooooooooooooooo, I'm right! - Meg VMeg
Though I don't have this problem in WordPress, I wonder why. Because it's not competing with a dollar sign or a paper clip? - Meg VMeg
Amit Patel
I only today discovered/realized (thanks to Stephan Planken) that a lot of the people here on FF are also on Twitter. I am on Twitter but I treat it completely separately from my FF posts. Most things I post on FF and not on Twitter. Those Twitter people are missing out ;)
Most of my posts are in parallel between Twitter and FF but the 140 sped limit means FF gets my longer posts #maybenotbetterjustlonger - WarLord
I'm on Twitter, except not really. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I usually cross-post automatically to Twitter, FriendFeed, and Facebook because I have no idea what will wind up being interesting to each group, and I want to talk to everyone regardless of their choice of social network. Sometimes things in different directions on different networks off of the same post. If it's something specific to someone who only resides on a specific network, I'll post it only there, though. - Mark Trapp

Can't stop laughing. Did you see that NYTimes infographic showing how nonemployed people spend their time? It's for an absolute time zone. Here are screenshots for how many people are sleeping at "10pm", one if you're viewing from the Eastern time zone and one for Hawaiian-Aleutian time zone.
Show all
No shit 96-97% of Hawaiians are sleeping at 10pm. It's 3 or 4am Eastern time, depending on daylight savings. I assume this is a D3 error? Like, the data is trying too hard to be interactive? - Meg VMeg
My friend in Hawaii was like, "HOW IS EVERYONE SLEEPING ALL THE TIME?" because it said that over 90% of people were asleep at 8pm. - Meg VMeg
i would guess more that someone at nyt screwed up the coding than anything. - Sir Shuping is just sir
but yeah...that's still a lot of data to try to show off in one go. betting that someone also got cocky and was like "oh yeah i an do that. oh do i do that???" - Sir Shuping is just sir
Haha, I set my time zone to Bangalore's time zone, and now all unemployed people are night owls: - Mark Trapp

Did Apple's discount for education use to be better?
yes - ellbeecee
You only get $60 off a 256GB Macbook Air with 8GB of RAM. I...almost don't see the point. - Meg VMeg
yes. - Jenica
Yeah. I kept telling myself it was still $60, which in my world is a lot of money. But yeah. - laura x
When I was in college, it was a flat 30% discount on everything they sold. Just as I was leaving, they replaced that program with one where you got a free iPod and like $100 off or something with the purchase of a laptop. $60 seems minuscule in comparison. - Mark Trapp from iPhone
Yeah. I was in college during the early/mid 90's "Apple for Education" program which had some pretty decent discounts. - ellbeecee
We get the exploding twitter fav stars we deserve, not the imploding selfie-sticks we want.

I wanted to watch Divergent, but it's not on anything. - Meg VMeg
Then I checked when the new Orphan Black would be out, and it's not for ages. - Meg VMeg
Hmm. I haven't seen that. Have you seen Misfits already? - Spidra Webster
I will check it out! - Meg VMeg
S1 is really excellent. Things get a little less excellent later simply because of personnel changes and how writers usually have trouble keeping such concepts afloat forever. Hulu has a page for its scifi stuff: - Spidra Webster
Do you have access to HBO GO? I just saw Divergent there when I was flipping through it. - Mark Trapp
Misfits is good! Nope, I have no HBO GO. - Meg VMeg
I binge watched Misfits when I discovered it. - Spidra Webster
orphan black was on YouTube for awhile - jambina
I love Orphan Black. I am a few episodes into Season 2. - Laura
I'm attempting to watch Gilmore Girls, but it's not doing anything for me. - laura x from iPhone
Yeah, that's another one that takes at least 2 seasons, if not 3? I didn't care so much until Jess came on the scene, even though I didn't like Jess very much. So...maybe 3. I like Paris a lot. - Meg VMeg
Yeah, that is a problem for me with TV. That and the visual aspect. - laura x from iPhone

One of the best parts of the current perpetual copyright regime is that the Tolkien estate won't ever have to give up the rights to the Silmarillion. I can just imagine 4 movies of Legolas traveling back in time to save Beleriand. - Mark Trapp

holly #ravingfangirl
dear world: mistletoe is not holly. please learn the difference. i mean, honestly. Sincerely, the hollys of the world. #imagesearchingfail
The way I learned the difference was that holly has red berries while mistletoe has white. - Mark Trapp from iPhone
plus mistletoe has round leaves while holly leaves are pointed. - holly #ravingfangirl
I can maybe see how people could get them at least vaguely mixed up in other parts of the world, since both mistletoe and holly have multiple genera, species, and subspecies with various leaf shapes. But here in the US...yeah, no. You can't mix them up. Our most common holly has spiny-toothed glossy leaves with red berries and our most common mistletoe has smooth round dull leaves with white berries. That and one is a shrub/tree and the other is a parasite. - Hookuh Tinypants
NOW I HAVE TO BE A BOTANIST ON THE HOLIDAYS??! Okay. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I'll step up though, because *pause* many botanists died to bring us this information. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I have a cousin named Holly and this is a major pet peeve of hers around the holiday. Especially when people send her cards with pictures of mistletoe that say "Happy HOLLYdays!" It makes her violent. (yes that actually happened to her last year) - Hookuh Tinypants

I think you're right, Hig. He's taking me 36k so far -- we're past the one third milestone. - Stephen Mack from iPhone

52.5k now. Louis is 56k. Stride difference or device difference? Also he keeps walking when I stop to pee. Grr! The difference is a problem. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Ken G. did 30k or more with us. Great job and thank you, Ken! Edit: 35k - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Don't take any ibuprofen! Rule of thumb when you're doing an endurance event (even walking or hiking). You don't take painkillers of any kind because they can cause kidney and/or liver damage (it screws with your hydration and sodium levels). You have to wait until you've had your first good pee after you've completed your endurance event before you should take a painkiller of any kind. - Hookuh Tinypants
Oops. Good advice. Too late. :( - Stephen Mack from iPhone
26.9 miles walked, 58.4k steps. A marathon walked in 10 hours. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
63k but Louis is somehow at 69,800. I can understand him being 2k or 3k ahead but he picked up 1,000 steps on me in the last 20 min while walking the same trail. Something ain't right. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Hmm. We did a test. He's currently getting 100 steps while I got 75 -- but we were walking side by side and matching strides. So I'm going to use his count. :) - Stephen Mack from iPhone
We're therefore nearing 75k. :) - Stephen Mack from iPhone

It's too late to advise you guys to ice your legs, but I recommend a hot bath with Epsom salts. Soak for at least 15 minutes. Make sure you get up and move frequently throughout the day. Doesn't need to be fast or long, just enough to keep your muscles from tightening back up. Do some stretches, both static and dynamic. And hydrate like your life depends on it. Also, pull up your Fitbit dashboard or app periodically and stare at your numbers for yesterday. Revel in that. :) - Hookuh Tinypants
Excellent advice, Hookuh! I did ice a bit before bath last night, and am doing some more ice today. Epsom salt bath soon. Good idea on the stretches. - Stephen Mack
I've found some short walks to be helpful for me today, along with the stretching. Not so sore that I need ice or espom salt baths today. Definitely had reached my limit yesterday and happy to have stopped then. Don't envy Louis & you today. - Ken Gidley
If by "short walks" I can qualify with "hobbling to and from the kitchen" then I can say I took several short walks today. Fitbit tells me I've taken 270 steps so far today. That's a litttttle bit different from yesterday. (BTW, when I got home last night and realized I needed to take the trash bins down, I was so mad.) - Stephen Mack
That's how I would have felt after about 7K, and it would take me days to recover. I try to stay between 3K and 5K on most days. - April Russo
Just remember - it's not the day after that kills you. It gets worse on the second day after. *runs away* - Hookuh Tinypants
Tinypants!!! (Shakes fist) - Louis Gray
I did more than 9,000 steps today, because I had to do Christmas shopping still, and take kids places. But I've not been dramatically exerting. Over time, the stiffness will subside. - Louis Gray
