The only thing keeping me from becoming a Netflix subscriber right this minute is that I would have to use Chrome instead of Chromium.

Picked up two bottles just this morning. Will soon be one bottle. - Julian

"Installing update 1 of 97" is what happens when you haven't turned your laptop on since August 2013.
something tells me it won't be ready by the time I have to leave. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I had something like that when I turned on my netbook after a year and half. Updates took close to 3 days to complete. - Anika
Anika, that bodes ill for the rest of my week then. in fact it is a netbook and we're on update 18 after about an hour. smh - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
It has been over 30 months since I last booted this laptop into Windows 7. Imagine how many updates would await me... - Julian

Still trying to figure out how 💁 means "information desk person."
eesh. gendered and race-bound assumptions much? - RepoRat
Apple's interpretation. It would certainly not be mine. - Julian
For once, I think Microsoft wins: http://blog.getemoji.com/post... - Julian
yep, I agree. - RepoRat
It looks like somebody tried to generalize the AIGA "ticket sales" person http://www.aiga.org/symbol-... - DJF from Android
the android person is the worst - 1960s era "stewardess" - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
^^^ yup - Julian
MS did a good job here. The Apple one...sigh. - Walt Crawford
That character displayed differently depending on the browser and operating system. No wonder I was confused. - Joe
Ah. What I see on Firefox/Windows 7 is the iconic one that makes no assumptions. - Walt Crawford
Yeah, Firefox/Windows 7 was no assumptions. Firefox/Mac 9.something is the white brunette lady. - Meg VMeg

"Are You Avoiding the Pitfalls of Our Industry?" Oh man, if there was a library science version of Pitfall, how much would that rule?
like like like like like like like like - Meg VMeg
Would it be available for the Atari 5200 or the Apple IIGS? - Julian
Well, I grew up on the Atari 5200, but I can see multi-platform potential here. - Zamms
Make it a LibGuides widget and you can print money. - Steele Lawman
Print money like it was LibGuides! - Meg VMeg

Why women leave tech... because they have good taste - http://everythingsysadmin.com/2014...
Good author. Saw him speak in person once. - Julian
Gendered (work) culture is something constantly on my mind (and something I put up with daily). I work on a team with tens of people, and only one of them is not a man (and that one person is about ten time zones away). - Julian

Praline bacon. MMM...
I have none. This is just a suggestion, as seen on TV. - Julian
Sounds wonderful. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

My response to the story today out of the University of Florida. Memo to all human beings: do not hit, and do not rape.
At Carolina, Treon Harris would have already been off the team and out of school for good. - Julian

Apparently, I live in DC. http://gawker.com/are-you...
Though, I might not even live in Silver Spring: http://www.justupthepike.com/2014... - Julian
And here I've been telling people I used to live *outside* DC, but this says I was actually *in* DC. Good to know. - bentley

Pumpkin ravioli. mmm...
Not today. Maybe tomorrow? - Julian

Pluots sound intriguing. They would make an excellent jam. - Julian
i bet they would. - holly #ravingfangirl
I think that's my goal for next year. I just keep eating them this year >__> - Jennifer Dittrich

Well, I really hadn't intended to go through my filing cabinet and weed through the entire thing...
I wonder if I'll ever miss that bank statement from 1997... - lris
The IRS won't miss it. - Julian
Read that as "Iris is filing while high" - Johnny from iPhone

It holds true. You can't spell Citrus without U-T.
This one just got ugly. - Julian
Wow. Quite classy, Vols. - Julian

Installing Windows 10
So far its alot like Windows 8. - Me
The UI is still rough. It should get additional updates. - Eric - It's My Thing
Its not bad. Quick install. - Me
I haven't gotten a chance to play yet. I'll load it up next week. - Eric - It's My Thing
I shall have to stand up a VM at some point to poke and prod. - Julian
Running it in Fusion VM. Its ok so far. On a dedicated system it might be nice. Might take the company laptop and install it. - Me
Feels a bit clunky though. - Me
Now I'm wondering how this works on a Surface Pro. hmmm... best check craigslist for deals. - Me

The hot new arrival in town: EBOLA. Sheesh. 😷
It's just a matter of time before it's jumping the White House fence. - Alan
What if we get quarantined inside of the Beltway? 😨 - Julian

I do not own the Graceland CD ... should I?
Sure! - Julian
I like most of it. Doesn't necessarily mean you will. - Walt Crawford
You mean Paul Simon - Graceland? - Steve C Team Marina
Most definitely. - Hookuh Tinypants
*thumbs up* - MoTO: Team Marina
My fish deposit should be getting there now. Use it to get Graceland. One of best complete albums of all time. - Steve C Team Marina
Graceland is one of the (if not THE) best albums of the 1980's. Get it. - Glen Campbell
Is Rdio free in the U.S.? Here's a fantastic track where Paul Simon talks about the evolution of the Graceland album: http://rd.io/x/QTIaxTdeXTR4/ - Ken Morley
I grew up on S & G, adore Negotiations and Love Songs (which has a few of Graceland's songs) but somehow missed Graceland. I'm in the mood for some new old music :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
I was temping at an office when Graceland came out and that CD was on continuous play in our back office. - bentley
Yes. :) - Anne Bouey

I am thinking that a Balto-Wash I-95 series would be pretty cool.
Amazingly, it would attract less attention than the two local pro football teams. - Julian

Why yes, I am hopping mad. Here’s why. #teamharpy - http://pegasuslibrarian.com/2014...
When this got shared on facebook I realized that many folks in that area won't understand the context, so I added the following note: - lris
[Edited to add: for those of you who don't know about #teamharpy, conversations about sexual harassment in libraryland were recently sparked off by one prominent male librarian suing two women for 1.25 million dollars. He's claiming defamation because they spoke out about his harassment. Libraryland is in heated conversation, now, about power dynamics, the silencing affect that lawsuits... more... - lris
*sigh* I haven't seen or experienced any of this, and I find it sooooo troubling. (I do believe it). Maybe 'cause I was never one of the cool kids. still: ick. Thank you for writing your perspective. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Well that's just it, Stephanie. I've spoke with a few people who said that when they finally decided this was for the birds, they were kicked out from the "cool kids" circle and felt ostracized. There's something about that cool kids circle that seems to enable all of this. Personally, I've seen a lot less than other people I know, probably partially because I'm not conventionally pretty. Small blessings. - lris
[side note: nearly all of the cool kids I've met were not harassers] - lris
cool kid...? --> - Julian
^ yes, in a good way - lris
Ugh. Ive been following the conversation on this in ALATT on FB, and it's fucking awful. - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
Oh yeah, the ALATT thread I read yesterday was a total trainwreck. - maʀtha

The only drama I want to see in October is on the baseball diamond. Is that too much to ask?
And, of course, on the football field on Saturday afternoons. - Julian

Trader Joe's Pumpkin Bagel with Pumpkin Cream Cheese... YUM!!!!!
Have you tried TJ's pumpkin butter? Perfect for parties: pour the jar over a block of cream cheese & serve with crackers. - Corinne L
Pumpkin butter is magic. - Julian
Parties? Lol! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
It's good for random snacking on holiday days, too :) - Jennifer Dittrich
That even sounds good. - Eric Logan
I think the samples the other day had pumpkin butter on them. YUMMY! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
I could eat tj's pumpkin butter from the jar - awesome on toast with butter too - Christina Pikas from iPhone
Parties, random snacking, that moment when you are pulling together a last minute item for a potluck...you know. :-) - Corinne L

Steve Smith Sr. has started with the B&G in Baltimore.
One more TD, and it will start to look like Dexter's Kill Room. - Julian

Egads it's earlier than I'd like it to be! Good morning.
*waves* - Julian
If there's no sun, it's not as much fun. (In the morning, at least.) - (Curtis) Alan Jackson

We went from 70°F to this in less than an hour!

Not really complaining! We desperately need the rain. - Anne Bouey
I saw this post and thought about you http://www.reddit.com/r... - Rodfather
I was driving at the start and all the cars pulled to the side because suddenly we were driving unprepared on icy roads! The hail was so large that I'm afraid to check my car for dents. - Anne Bouey
Wow scary - Rodfather
Oh wow, I didn't notice the hail in the thumbnail 'til you mentioned it. Yikes. - Spidra Webster
Driving back from Monterey earlier I saw across the bay all those clouds around Santa Cruz. It didn't hit Watsonville but read there was hail in Aptos which is right next door. - Rodfather from Android
And you are not in Colorado? - Julian
Julian, this is in Napa, CA although we did experience similar events when we lived in CO (both with hail and with snow!). - Anne Bouey
I got the severe weather alert for Napa on the radio and was so surprised. Clear skies here in the South Bay. Hope you and your car are okay, Anne. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Woah. Woah - Amit Patel
It's been quite a day here. We started with a 2.5 aftershock and ended with this! - Anne Bouey
Crazy! I'm also a little jealous :-) - Amit Patel
From the Napa Valley Register: "The skies above Napa turned furious during rush hour Friday evening, pelting the area with heavy rain, marble-size hail stones and claps of thunder. In some west Napa areas, the hail piled up two inches deep, creating a Sierra winter landscape that prompted motorists to slow to a crawl or pull over. When they felt safe, some got out of their cars to take... more... - Anne Bouey
I miss 70, but it looks like we'll have a beautiful, hail free 60+ day :) - Morgan Fugel from Android

Anyone want to work with me? We need a Music and Performing Arts Reference Librarian. http://www.libraryjobline.org/job...
In an alternate 2015 (that would have passed through an alternate 1985), I could see myself making a run at that. - Julian
Given what I know about music librarianship (eroding knowledge at this point), does "Advanced degree in music" = "Ph.D. or don't even bother" like I have always heard it does? - Julian
Oooh. I may have a couple students who would be up for that. I'll pass it on! - RepoRat
Ph.D. is not required as far as I know. But, a Masters in Music of some sort might be considered recommended. - Joe
Julian
Why does quitting keep getting easier over time?
Or, more accurately, being a quitter. - Julian
