if you have to drop so many letters from the words in your tweet that it's like doing a puzzle to decipher it, YOUR MESSAGE IS TOO LONG FOR A TWEET.

Twitter helps deputies bust Marion Co. party | Portland
"A secluded party in the woods for 19-year-old Nathaniel Gray's birthday. At least, that's what the attendees thought it would be. But what the underage partiers involved may not have realized was that deputies were using social media just like they were - to spread the word." - holly #ravingfangirl from Bookmarklet

"May the Source be with you." --Master Stallman
"If you can find a parrot to go with the Source, I will be very glad. DON'T buy a parrot figuring that it will be a fun surprise for me. If you buy a captured wild parrot, you will promote a cruel and devastating practice, and the parrot will be emotionally scarred before you get it. Meeting that sad animal is not an agreeable surprise." - Mark Trapp

TNT's 'The Librarians' starts filming in Portland
TNT's 'The Librarians' starts filming in Portland
"Grimm and Portlandia will soon have new TV neighbors on the block. TNT has green-lighted “The Librarians,” which is set to begin filming in Portland this spring, Deadline reports. The show stars Rebecca Romijn and Noah Wyle and centers on an ancient organization located beneath a public library that protects a secret collection of magical items. In the show, the cast will solve mysteries, recover artifacts and fight supernatural threats. The show is a 10-episode series follow-up to “The Librarian,” a hit made-for-TV movie trilogy that also aired on TNT. It will be produced by the same team that produced "Leverage." " - holly #ravingfangirl
WHAT ABOUT GILES? - Spidra Webster
Oh, awesome. - Jennifer Dittrich
yay for some of the Leverage team back together again! - holly #ravingfangirl
Yeah, that's half of my enthusiasm right there - they know how to put together a good show, and the premise is pretty fun already. - Jennifer Dittrich
One of my favorite library students is a public librarian in Portland. I hope she gets some of this action!! - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an

Just had a meeting with the CEO and received a gift package in recognition of my 15 years at TiVo. Wow. Feeling thankful and appreciated.
They should appreciate you because from what I've seen, you kick a lot of ass. - Spidra Webster

I love how insulted/galled the cartoon antidepressant pill looks in the Abilify commercial.
WHAT, A CARTOON ANTIDEPRESSANT PILL ISN'T GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU? And Abilify just smiles back, faux sheepishly. - Meg VMeg
Abilify pill is a smug bastard and needs to get the bar of soap in the sock treatment in the pill planner late at night. - Big Joe Silence

Circumcision Benefits Outweigh Risks, Study Reports [] -
Circumcision Benefits Outweigh Risks, Study Reports []
Show all
From the article: "A review of studies has found that the health benefits of infant male circumcision vastly outweigh the risks involved in the procedure. But the study, published online in Mayo Clinic Proceedings, also found that while rates of circumcision among American men ages 14 to 59 increased to 81 percent from 79 percent over the past decade, the rate of newborn circumcision has declined by 6 percentage points, to 77 percent, since the 1960s." - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
More: "One cost-benefit analysis that considered infant urinary tract infections and sexually transmitted diseases found that if circumcision rates were decreased to the 10 percent typical in European countries, the additional direct medical costs over 10 years of births would be more than $4.4 billion." - Stephen Mack
Last paragraph: "'Male circumcision is in principle equivalent to childhood vaccination,' said the lead author, Brian J. Morris, emeritus professor of medical sciences at the University of Sydney. 'Just as there are opponents of vaccination, there are opponents of circumcision. But their arguments are emotional and unscientific, and should be disregarded.'" - Stephen Mack
The full text is not long. The stat that was most surprising to me: "These data show that the risk to an uncircumcised male of developing a condition requiring medical attention during their lifetime is approximately 1 in 2. " - Stephen Mack
^ I have a hard time believing that. - Stephen Mack
Yeah that doesn't seem right to me either, and I'm not anti-snip. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
"Male circumcision is in principle equivalent to childhood vaccination"...oof, there are certain circles of the internet (coughredditcough) where that'd be some dangerous heresy. Hm, and actually, I just checked and every posting of the study was downvoted to oblivion there: - Mark Trapp
I'm generally anti-circumcision but only because I generally believed it to be unnecessary. But I certainly don't feel anti-circ is equivalent to anti-vax. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Funny how one person's 'bloodthirsty mob' is another's 'wisdom of the crowds'.

Irrationally biased against resumes involving color.
I see nothing irrational in this. - ellbeecee
What ellbee sez. - Walt Crawford
what type of colors are we talking about? the favorite one I saw used a yellow font on white paper. with some pink thrown in for good measure - Sir Shuping is just sir
Any color whatsoever (though I'm fine if email addresses and URLs are incidentally blue). Like, even if the effect is aesthetically pleasing and the information is well laid out, I just hate it on some kind of principle. - Meg VMeg
I prefer resumes with some design sense. *shrug* Possibly an allergic reaction to CVs, which ugh, so ugly and hard to scan. - RepoRat
I am irrational biased against resumes involving the movie Colors. I can check IMDB to check if you're in it. - Zamms
I like small color accents, but I hate when they use text boxes in Word, and then don't convert to PDF, so you see boxes of dashed lines all over the whole thing when looking at it electronically. - LibrarianOnTheLoose
What about, say, a résumé that appears on a website that already has a theme involving color? Should it appear on an unthemed page? - Mark Trapp
I'm okay with tasteful use of color in HTML/web-based resumes. It's only the PDFs and Word docs where it bothers me. Clearly I am insane. - Meg VMeg
Mark, that I'd expect it to be themed as the site, but give me a link to a pdf too because I still need to be able to print it off and mark it up (well, if you're an actual applicant. And in that case I'd have expected you to attach your resume/cv to an email and make my life easier) - ellbeecee
ellbeecee: oh sure, definitely on the PDF alternative. Meg: nah, I totally agree, though maybe for different reasons. My feeling is that Word docs and PDFs have an implied "this may be printed" contract associated with them that web/HTML does not, and I don't want to go all wasting my precious color ink on some superfluous coloring. I guess I could always just check "B&W" when printing, but that's an extra step that's not needed! I dunno, maybe we're both insane. - Mark Trapp

I know that we usually use the myth of Icarus as an object lesson in avoiding hubris and not reaching beyond our grasp, but when I teach my kids about Icarus, the moral I'll emphasize is LISTEN TO YOUR DAD, HE'S ALWAYS RIGHT. -

I'm releasing to the Canadian iTunes Store first to make sure everything is copacetic. I'll soon be requesting some FF testers to do their thing (Canadian peeps on day 1, world wide probably the next day if all is well). - Micah
Thanks again to my Android peoples who gave the test drive back in October—many thanks. The free app in Play store is coming up to the 5000+ download marker any time now. - Micah
IT'S LIVE! Free App: - Micah
My testing based on Canadian iTunes checked out. Woot. I've opened up distribution to all available countries 30 minutes ago (but it takes unknown hours to propagate). If anyone sees it show up in USA iTunes, and elsewhere, can you let me know? THANKS. - Micah
