They did that 30000 times??? Holy crap I want to switch to TD Canada Bank - Steve C Team Marina
How are my ffeeps today? What are you all up to?
Winding down after a 5k. David is reading. Helen is chatting with her friend. - Pete : Team Marina
About to take a nap. - Julian
Trudging through the alleys of SPSS... - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
Putting numbers in boxes, Marie. I'm fine, thanks. - MoTO: Team Marina
Hanging out on the couch. - Jenny H. from Android
I'm good, thanks. Doing odd bits of grading and online-class-discussion-answering. - RepoRat
trying to get back to reality. prepping for a volunteer gig with band camp kids tomorrow. doing the laundry from my trip. examining the growing black and blue patch covering my right shin. procrastinating calling my mother in response to her email about my niece being born. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Finished awesome PubMed for Trainers class, got to have lunch with my former boss Del - maʀtha from Android
Fine! Worked on cleaning up my office ALL DAY. Then went to Sam's to buy meat and a dog bed. Now home, showered, and loafing. On the sofa. With Tucker, who liked the dog bed until I got on the sofa. :| - L to tha B from Android
And how are you? - L to tha B from Android
Winding down after a full day - how are things with you, Marie? - Jen
Winding down from winding down all day. Phew. - Jim: with more caffeine!
Don't ask me about our trial of a faculty profile system. Good pizza and cocktails for dinner. - Meg VMeg
I'm about to make up a salad thingy with garbanzo beans, so my day is preeeeeetty okay. :) - Marie
Why I Quit My Library Job and Why I No Longer Want One | INALJ -
Once upon a time, I was co-workers with the author. - Julian
Also, a quite timely blog post. Yesterday marked exactly one year of me working outside of Libraryland. (This might be the first time that I have ever so publicly shared that.) - Julian
#OHSNAP (reaction from watching last night's episode of Halt and Catch Fire)
Oh. Snap. - Julian
Once again. OH. SNAP. #spoilers - Julian
More or less... yes. - Julian
I just found out that I finally have access to WatchESPN with RCN. It started a week ago, and I had completely missed it. Yay.
Except it does not seem to be working today. - Julian
$108 million just for the right to negotiate with King James.
Would that, then, be the king's ransom? - Julian
It's good to be king. - Steve C Team Marina
I was at Harris Teeter yesterday to make a quick purpose. Even though I do not have a "club card" there, I still managed to get the discount. Guess how...?
How? - Marie
Cashier used hers? - Christina Pikas from iPhone
That was my guess, too. - Meg VMeg
Don't know what Harris Teeter is but the name makes me smile. Can you imagine being a kid with a name like Teeter? - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I loved Teeter! After so many times of shopping there you would get treats. We got our first grill as one of the treats. A whole grill! For free! - Marie
I just put in a famous phone number at the self-checkout... - Julian
867-5309? - Melly - #TeamMarina
It really does work every time. - Julian
Ha! I had no idea. Only at Harris Teeters? Or is it like a bugmenot across stores? - Meg VMeg
Pretty much any grocery store. - Julian
That is so cool. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Oooh! I'll have to remember that! - Kirsten
awesome grocery store hack!!! - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
re the name - we also have Harris Teeter, which sometimes gets abbreviated to "Harry Teet" or something similar. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
I am sad to report that there will be no alpacas at the wedding. #MerryChrisWedding
and why the heck not?? - Sir Shuping is just sir
Then count me out! ;) - Holly's favorite Anna
They've been replaced by two white donkeys instead!!! - Miriella
What about alpaca sweaters? - Julian
Not in June! - Miriella
I swear I saw a convertible Honda CR-Z the other day on the road. When I go to the website to see how much they cost they appear not to really exist. Did I hallucinate it?
I think that's what I saw! But I can't find that actual car on the Honda site anywhere. - Marie
LSW: Joe
Picture this. Ice cream truck. Library book truck. Combined. Good idea or bad idea?
book-flavored ice cream? thanks, but no. - RepoRat
Not exactly. Sell ice cream, and circulate books for free for card holders. - Joe
YES. I will suggest this to the Antelope Lending Library. - laura x from iPhone
Like coffee, but better! - ~Courtney F
I would run out to the street with a fist full of quarters and my library card if I heard the music! - Marie
Brilliant. - Kirsten from Android
are you hiring? - maʀtha
Still need to get the truck first. Working on funding. - Joe
It might have difficulty getting past the board. - Julian
I promise free ice cream to board members. - Joe

shoes on their way! - maʀtha from Bookmarklet
I had a pair of Alegria's that I wore to death. The only thing I don't like is the velcro. - Laura
shiny - maʀtha
And cute. - Julian
Do not buy patent Alegrias. I have two pair of patent and they squeak so much that I avoid walking through public spaces when I wear them to work. Actually, I've stopped wearing the patent ones. My regular leather ones, though---heavenly! - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
does this shiny purply stuff count as patent? - maʀtha
OR is it really fishskin? - maʀtha
My non-patent leather Alegrias squeak as well, though I still wear them. - kristin buxton
teeeheeeheee - maʀtha
Silver shoes are also good for rapid transit - DJF from Android
um... - maʀtha
But only if you prefer the book over the movie - DJF from Android
What is the Wizard of Oz? - maʀtha
(what do I win?) - maʀtha
$400 added to your point tally. - DJF from Android
The shoes are here! They fit perfectly right out of the box and are gloriously squeak free - maʀtha
I think I have a new shoe brand - maʀtha
Excellent! - L to tha B
Really disappointed in the status of Virtualization software nowadays. Years ago, I was able to run SuSE in VirtualBox without any real difference in performance. Now, running any version of Windows in VMWare Fusion on my MBP drags my whole system to a crawl, and attempting to run Ubuntu in VBox on my Windows machine is super slow in the guest. :(
I can understand why it's so difficult to run a modern OS inside of an emulator, but it just boggles my mind as to why it worked so well for me in the past, and is a complete letdown now that we've moved so far forward in hardware. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Are you having this problem overall? I run Parallels and I feel like my performance is fine with Windows 7. - Eric
I like KVM. *ducks* I mean, I like pie. - Julian
I've had this problem overall with VMWare Fusion on my Mac Book. This is the first time I've installed VirtualBox on my Windows machine in a long time (decided I want a local LAMP server to play with, especially since I'm taking an advanced PHP refresher course right now). I'm getting ready to test a different Linux distro on the VirtualBox. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Go Parallels. I've been using it over VMWare for years. - Akiva
What version of Windows are you running? If you have Windows 8 Pro or higher I'd recommend the built-in Hyper-V over all others. I assume your VMWare Tools were updated and all is good there. Have you tried the latest disk type in Fusion? - Eric
As far as VirtualBox goes, it seems like it went immediately off a cliff in many senses as soon as Oracle bought it. That's part of why I stopped using it a long time ago; as soon as Oracle released their first version, there were a bunch of Linux distros that wouldn't even boot up anymore in it, and after a year or so of intermittent testing, they still hadn't fixed any of those issues. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
VirtualBox is not the greatest IMO. It's free, so that's good. Otherwise, VMWare Workstation or Hyper-V are much better on Windows. - Eric
Thanks for the suggestion. Turning on Hyper-V right now. I'll give that a shot. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Hyper-V doesn't have the official support of Linux distros like VMWare has, but SUSE, Ubuntu, and Red Hat are covered if you want native support. - Eric
Yeah, I'll give Ubuntu or Red Hat a try. Just want something, other than trying to setup a WAMP server, where I can do some basic Web server config testing. Whatever flavor of Unix/Linux I run doesn't really matter to me. I already have a portable WordPress install I can run in Windows, but for general PHP dev or apache config stuff, I really need a full LAMP stack somewhere, and don't really feel like dual-booting. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
After fighting with Ubuntu for a few hours in Hyper-V (the image loads up just fine, but I couldn't seem to get any Internet connection set up for use with it, so I couldn't really install it), I started looking around at other options. It looks like Hyper-V actually only "officially" supports Red Hat (which is enterprise/payware - not sure if they support Fedora or not), SuSE (most... more... - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Update: Got OpenSUSE installed with no serious issues. Networking seems to work properly. Been a long time since I've messed with SUSE (it was purely a KDE distro the last time I used it), so it will take a little getting used to using YAST instead of APT/Synaptic again, but I'm looking forward to it. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Cool. - Eric
Happy Birthday to our Marie!
Happy birthday, Marie :) - Pete : Team Marina

Happy Birthday! - Jennifer Dittrich
happy birthday! - Marianne
Happy birthday! - Jen
Happiest of days! - laura x from iPhone
Happy birthday! - L to tha B from Android

Happy Birthday!!!! - Katy S
Phew, still have a few more hours to get my birthday greetings in. Hope you're having a great day. - Stephen Francoeur
Happy birthday!!!! - Galadriel C. from Android
But I like the Oxford comma (and semicolon)...
Also, pure brilliance. Far surpasses the original which provided the inspiration. - Julian

When's the last time you used a laundromat?
1997 - Micah
about 13 years ago, but I will again later this month when I'm on my bike tour. - DJF from Android
A week ago tomorrow. And tomorrow I will again. - ellbeecee
over and over in various cities in 1993. low budget touring sucks. - Big Joe Silence
Couple years ago when dryer crapped out. - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
find a laundromat in $city before ubiquitous Internet and wifi and Giggle Mops! - Big Joe Silence
the hotel in philly during SLA2011 - jambina
Last summer during vacation. - Hookuh Tinypants
was it SUDDENLY last summer? - Big Joe Silence
2008 during honeymoon travel. - RepoRat
At least 10 years ago. - Brian Johns
2010, I think, to wash my comforter. The last time I used one regularly was maybe 2002. - laura x
Last Friday. - Slippy from Android
Joe, it was TOTALLY SUDDENLY last summer. - Hookuh Tinypants
the last time I was in San Francisco. two summers ago? something like that. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
2007 in Missoula, MT - Jim: with more caffeine! from iPhone
I'm so jealous of y'all. I have to get it down the stairs, in the car, and to a different neighborhood. Hate having to use a laundromat. Last time? Week n a half ago. Going again Friday. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Last summer for massive bedding & linen washing. Otherwise it's downstairs in my building. I look forward to the day when I have my own washer & dryer again and I don't have to save all my quarters for machines. - Corinne L
I'm going to tomorrow for the first time since 1999. But I'm going to cheat and use their wash-n-fold service. - Akiva
Two weeks ago. (It will soon be time again.) - Julian
2 years ago when I moved in w Philosopher. we have in building laundry. - Hedgehog from Android
Earlier this year, when I was living in Vegas and the bunkhouse washing machine was broken for about 6 months. - Jenny H. from Android
Last fall to clean my duvet and mattress pad. I have a small washer with agitator, and they don't fit in it. - Holly's favorite Anna from Android
Used the apt one last fall. Truck stop one two years ago - FLEMING from Android
Last year, to wash our mattress pad since it doesn't fit in the laundry machine. - Andy
Laundromat. Um, Paris, I think. Yeah. Paris was 1995. Last laundry-not-my-own was the at motel I lived in December 2011 while my house was being repaired post-earthquake. (Haha. They still haven't finished off the work, but at least they finished enough that I could move back in and even eventually put the curtains back up.) - Deborah Fitchett
Six days ago to do sleeping bags before the camping trip. - Joe
Sunday. - Steven Perez
Probably a year ago but I think it's likely I'll be using one at least once on this upcoming trip. - Spidra Webster
My husband used one yesterday, but I am still washing my clothes by hand. - April Russo
Two days ago. And I didn't use the laundromat, it was consensual and mutually beneficial. - Todd Hoff
Sorry about the side scroll. Germany just won the World Cup.
... even with time still on the clock. - Julian
That was pretty. - Joe
"Baby rocked to sleep by CD rom tray on computer." - imabonehead from Bookmarklet
I just learned more about the "eject" command. Also, awwwwwwwwww. - Julian
GOL --> GAH - Julian
GOAL out loud? - imabonehead
I accidentally the whole romance novel. And multiple bodices were, indeed, ripped. #themoreyouknow
Oop. - Julian
I've been doing that with webcomic archives lately. Fewer ripped bodices, but similar "whoa, did I read all that?" - RepoRat
It was a Kindle book I'd gotten on some promotional thing -- I knew nothing about it. Half way through it became clear what genre this was. Oh the bodices, they were flimsy. - lris
lol they just don't grow linen like they used to - RepoRat
If it took until halfway through to be clear what genre it was, it wasn't doing a very good job of genre. ;) - Catherine Pellegrino

Frontera frontera frontera frontera frontera frontera frontera frontera frontera
You are in Chicago? - Julian
ARE YOU?!?! - jambina
You got stuck at my airport due to rain, figured I'd return the favor! - Meg VMeg
I am at Meg's, so if you need a place to crash, just holler. - jambina
Will do, thanks. Hopefully our next flight won't get canceled. - Meg VMeg from Android
Tortas Frontera calls Negra Modelo, "Mexico's finest Munich-style Dunkel beer" - Meg VMeg
That would probably be funnier if you'd been up since 3:30am. - Meg VMeg
I was up off and on from 1-7:30. It's pretty funny. - laura x from iPhone
I'm just too tired to laugh properly. - laura x from iPhone
*fistbump* - Meg VMeg
There is an Amish or fundamentalist Mormon woman here, plugged into a battery. Also this other woman is having a really loud and excruciatingly detailed conversation with her child about the child's loose tooth. - Meg VMeg
My pants are covered in Garrett's cheese powder. - Meg VMeg
We are eating torta number 2. - Meg VMeg
what's your ETA? - jambina
So we're boarding in an hour, barring further storms and/or federal requirements for rest. - Meg VMeg
ah, okay. let me know! - jambina
There is a thing called Central Time for people in the central part of the country. Remember? I think Houston would have been in it. - Joe
Made it! - Meg VMeg from Android

Any bets on when CentOS 7 will be released? -
March 2015 at the earliest. - Julian
(I've been so out of it that I did not even notice that RHEL 7 came out three weeks ago.) - Julian
The official release is getting closer! - imabonehead
If I send you a thoughtfully worded email and you reply back to me, "Thanks Kathy!" just know that I'm going to sit here, fuming, for quite a while.
That's good to know, June. - ellbeecee
>_> - Marie
Hope to hear from you soon, Mary. *ducks* - Julian
Why so touchie, Marge? - Joe
I got called Mary in a meeting last night - maʀtha
Fellaini got rid of (most of) the hair??? WHA...?
Whaaaaaaaaat. - Jennifer Dittrich
I don't even know him anymore. - Julian
Oh, it looks like it is braided. - Jennifer Dittrich
6 1/2 Years Of Selfies Show Her Life With Mental Illness -
Just incredible. - Julian from Bookmarklet
I just discovered that next to the library in my neighborhood (by neighborhood, I mean a five minute walk away from home) is a Capital Bikeshare station. Right next to a park, too. My figure badly needed the motivation to shape up.
... but now I have to figure out if the membership plus per-ride usage fees compare well to just buying my own bike. I have not had one of my own in eleven years. - Julian
Stephen Francoeur
What airline will you no longer fly and why?
TWA - Blake
Oh, we're going to go that way? OK, then I say Braniff. - Stephen Francoeur
Interflug. - Uli
B.O.A.C. - Uli
I refused to fly Northwest after they stranded me in Minneapolis one time. They got absorbed by Delta though - Hedgehog from Android
TACA (AKA Take A Chance Airlines, now known as Avianca El Salvador ) - ellbeecee
I miss Ozark, myself. - laura x
United. Because of routes. - Julian
Ryanair. True cattle car. - Spidra Webster
Frontier, because their fee structure fills me with resentment. - Meg VMeg
Spirit Airways, because the flight I took with them filled me with much rage for their poor method of handling things and their flight attendants/pilots violating faa rules - Sir Shuping is just sir
Air New Zealand because they advertise using Māori and Māori symbolism and then won't hire cabin staff who wear moko because they think it'll scare the poor widdle tourists. Then they compounded my despite with incredibly sexist inflight safety videos and refused to listen to passengers' complaints of increased sexual harrassment from fellow passengers. So I'll stick with budget Jetstar. - Deborah Fitchett
I try to avoid American. - J. Marie B
Grace L Ferguson (and Storm Door) Company .... I'm not helping, am I? - Shannon - GlassMistress
i hate American Airlines, but they seem to be the only show in town for some destinations in SE Asia. - Big Joe Silence
I avoid United as much as possible. They've screwed me over with cancellations twice at least. - Andrew C (✔)
Clearly I don't travel enough. :P - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
American and United. Their fees and general bullshit sent me running to Virgin, JetBlue, Alaska, and Southwest years ago. - Hookuh Tinypants
Delta. Always late. Always an old plane. Always a grumpy staff. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
American Airlines. Worst customer service ever and ridiculous fares. - Jenny H. from Android
I generally don't care; I go with whatever's cheapest through Expedia. I do try to avoid any airline that doesn't do assigned seating, though. Cattle calls can SaF. - Akiva
Jetstar. - Melly - #TeamMarina
I don't avoid airlines; I avoid airports. I don't connect via the NYC metro area. Ever. - Jenica from iPhone
True, Jenica. I hate Logan in Boston (kind of an irrational hate based on being stuck there for 8 hours in 1992 on my birthday trying to get back to school for fall semester), but I'll connect there if I must to avoid connecting in NYC. - ellbeecee
We have the United hub so they are hard to ignore. I try to avoid airlines like Spirit that charge you extra for just sitting down. - Eric from iPhone
Slim pickin's flying out of my small town, so we take what we can get. - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
Allegiant, the Greyhound of the skies. - Laura Krier
United, mostly because they price themselves out of consideration any time I am looking. American was on my shitlist for leaving me behind at DFW years ago, but they've been pretty reliable, and are often my only reasonable choice for flying through DFW. Delta has inconsistencies, but are often the best deal out of my mid-sized airport, though I hate flying through ATL all the time.... more... - Holly's favorite Anna
Spirit Airlines, an abomination - maʀtha
This whole thread fascinates me. I've never really thought about airlines and why one would or wouldn't choose them, other than price and schedule. - laura x
I am also an airport avoider. Will go well out of my way to avoid Chicago O'Hare and Toronto unless I really have no other choice. - Marianne
Spirit is totally a "you get what you pay for" thing. - kendrak
Here in London Ontario, all my flights connect through either Toronto or Chicago. I'm basically screwed. - DJF from Android
Well. CentOS 7 has dropped. I better get on that (torrent).
Downloading now... - Julian
Got it. Now, to share it with the torrenting masses. - Julian
MLB All-Star Game to feature self-serve beer machines - ESPN -
MLB All-Star Game to feature self-serve beer machines - ESPN
Is this a good idea? - Julian from Bookmarklet
Probably not. Aside from any concern about someone being underage, people who've been drinking are not the best at operating unfamiliar (or even familiar) machinery. - Jennifer Dittrich
Then again, if you can't operate it then you don't get the beer, so.... - Kirsten
True, though people do tend to get ornery when thwarted like that. I wonder if they've got a function to summon security built in? - Jennifer Dittrich
Curious George making a mess counts as "too scary, don't like it" for the #visitingtoddler
New Curious George? - Julian
I'm not sure that it wouldn't count as "too scary, don't like it" for Mr. 6 as well. - Catherine Pellegrino
Goodness. Don't even try Cat in the Hat, then. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE from WinForFeed
THWAPP! - Julian
