Told my folks today about the coming demise of the best social network on the internet. They were sad to hear it. We are wondering if anyone has an actual copy of the memorial video that y'all put together? I'm sure I can find it later when I have a chance, but I thought I'd ask.
Oops. The memorial video for my brother from back in 2011. Sorry for not being clear. - Jim #teamFFrank
Yes, it's almost 2am and I'm still on FF. And Friday is now over...
Tonight I drove from Pottstown to Brooklyn, NY and back. I was picking up The Actress for her spring break week. I'm glad she's home. - Jim #teamFFrank
The trip was sad. I spent pretty much the entire drive thinking about how disempowered I feel as a result of FF being shut down. - Jim #teamFFrank
Some of the most significant moments of my life were shared with this community. You all played a bigger role in my life between September of 2010 and January of 2011 than did most of the people that I have met in person. I tried to say that about 5 different ways, like "know personally" but I do know many of you personally even if we've never met. - Jim #teamFFrank
And that got me thinking about how many people in the FF community could say nearly the same thing. And then I started thinking about what kind of calculus goes in to a decision to shut down a community like this. Finally, I wondered why we were given a "thanks for your support" but no say in how or if this community should continue to exist. - Jim #teamFFrank
Where I wound up was, well, nowhere in particular. I wish I could tie my thoughts up in a wrapped package with a bow, but my ruminations just sort of ended with: It was ours. Not theirs. Why are they taking it? - Jim #teamFFrank
Jim: First of all, *hugs*. I sympathize and agree with what you wrote, but I personally can't blame Facebook for shutting it down. It's a cost for them, and probably not an insignificant one (probably around $100,000 to $200,000 a year, at least -- factoring in storage, bandwidth, hardware maintenance, and personnel costs to handle that). And what do they get? There's zero revenue. And... more... - Stephen Mack
200k a year? What's that to Facebook? Why not monetize it in some. Ah, it's no use arguing. I was just putting it out there. - Jim #teamFFrank
Yeah, it's nothing to them, either way -- which was your point. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
2 am also for me every night since THE news :/ - did
So, I'm at the bakery, source of many great FF memories.

I'm looking for an archiving solution for FF. I will keep trying Claudio's version here, but it hasn't worked for me yet. And once it aborts, I don't know if it leaves behind the pages that it was able to archive or where to find them if it did. Anyone know of other tools to do this?
Here's a link to Claudio's archiver: - Jim #teamFFrank
I used one Pete suggested. You might search his comments for the link. I'll try to look, too, but my phone is wonky. - LB needs a break. from Android
That seems to be working. We'll see how far back it goes. Thanks! - Jim #teamFFrank
Oh, I think I know now why you were bumping stuff. That sucks. - Jim #teamFFrank
I was just bumping things I liked. You couldn't get it to go back? :( - LB needs a break. from Android
It went back to 2011. Maybe I'm not using it right. - Jim #teamFFrank
The counter wouldn't let me archive past 5,000 -- I guess that's posts. It returned a 404 error at some point. - Jim #teamFFrank
Ah. I didn't see how far mine went. I did, however, keep changing the start number, so I did 10,000 with a 5K count, 15K, 20K, etc. - LB needs a break. from Android
Claudio's can't do more than 10k, as of right now. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
Okay. I guess I am doing it wrong. What does count mean? - Jim #teamFFrank
I need a mac-friendly solution :-( - Mary Carmen
I guess I'm still doing it wrong. I cannot get it to go back farther than mid July of 2011. - Jim #teamFFrank
Anyone? - Jim #teamFFrank from Android
No you're not doing it wrong, the limit on the number of posts easily accessible from the API is 10k, all of the available archival tools, at this point do not address this. They don't do anything to go back further. At 10 posts/day, you can only go back to early 2012, using the API. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy

Was I right about the takeout? - MoTO Boychick Devil from Android
Yes, he stopped first at the Saint Peter's Bakery, which was almost another hour out of his way, then drove in to Philadelphia to see me at Penn Hospice. I'm getting a little teary eyed just typing this. - Jim #teamFFrank
I can't do anything on the FF website in Chrome but look at it. It works in Opera though. Ironic for a service that was invented by ex-Googlers. The suck of facebook is indeed far reaching.
Works like a champ for me in Chrome. Try an incognito window. If that works, clear your cache. - chrisofspades
I don't know why I didn't think of clearing the cache. That worked. - Jim #teamFFrank
Facebook still sucks, though. - Jim #teamFFrank

Sometimes it doesn't take a gift or even a phone call. Today was a disappointing day for my family. My brother, Frank who has been battling cancer for the last six months, was scheduled to have his tumor surgically removed today. It didn't work out that way. - Jim #teamFFrank from Posterous
The surgeon was concerned that Frank's tumor had grown larger in recent weeks and wanted an MRI done to see if she would have to revise her plan for the surgery. As a result the surgery was put off until Friday at the earliest and possibly next Wednesday. - Jim #teamFFrank
This was a hard pill to swallow, but we're doing the best we can. Bearing with us in our difficulty are dozens and even hundreds of people around the world, some of whom we will never meet in person in this life, who are praying for Frank and expressing support for him and my family. - Jim #teamFFrank
The simplest and, to me, the most moving show of support came from my friends on the social networking site Friendfeed. A while ago, my sister snapped a pic of me, my wife and our daughters with Frank. We were all wearing shirts that my mother had made for us which say, "Team Frank" on them. Frank has his own shirt which says simply "Frank." - Jim #teamFFrank
Someone, I'm not sure who, on Friendfeed who had seen that picture simply changed their user name to include Team Frank. That's all it took. - Jim #teamFFrank
Throughout the morning as we waited for answers and received none, and then through the afternoon back at home, I checked in on Friendfeed. Every single time it opened in my browser, at least one more user, sometimes four or five, had changed their names to include Team Frank. I told my parents, my sister and my brother about it before I left the hospital. All afternoon, as I sat trying... more... - Jim #teamFFrank
I'm amazed, touched, humbled and grateful. So is my family. - Jim #teamFFrank
Later tonight, or tomorrow or whenever, all those friendfeed users will change their names back, but I and my family will never forget the day a bunch of my virtual, but very real, friends did a simple thing that brought us all a tremendous amount of comfort, blessing and support. - Jim #teamFFrank
So, Friendfeed, Team Frank says thank you and bless you. - Jim #teamFFrank
I have tears in my eyes and there aren't many of us who's lives haven't been touched by cancer. Whatever we can do, know that we will, and that you have a bunch of is in your corner and Frank's as well. <3 - Derrick
Thanks to your whole family for being such great examples! - Kevin L
Let us know if there's more us peeps around the world can do. Take care of your wonderful family as best you can. - Steve C, Team Marina
Friendfeeders, whether they changed their user names or not, have been a mainstay of support for me personally throughout this time. Today was just one more example of how supportive you all have been for months now! - Jim #teamFFrank
Take it from this survivor, you brother will kick cancer's ass. He is surrounded by love and support which are crucial to fighting the fight. He will beat this. Thinking do many good thoughts for y'all. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Like Derrick, I too have tears in my eyes. Many blessings to you and your family as you move through this process. Go Team Frank! Where can the rest of us get a t-shirt?! - Corinne L
I'm teary just reading this. I <3 my FFriends! - LB needs a break. from YouFeed
Many hugs, and hopes that this delay will be for the best for Frank in the longer run. - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
Great post, and thank you for sharing the details of your experience. I am new here, but this is the reason I like this place. Even newbies can join Team Frank. Sending you good juju! - Liza + = ?

From Jim's FB today: "From an email I received from a member of our church just now: I have a feelng that Jesus is standing by the gate, or the front door, or whatever it is that leads into heaven, wearing a Team Frank tee shirt and waiting to give his friend a great big welcome. I think all of us feel like we know Frank, and we're glad we do." <3 - LB needs a break.

I was meeting with someone c. 1999 when they mentioned that I had looked at my watch 3 times in like 15 minutes. I immediately took it off and have not worn one since. - Jim #teamFFrank

The other day, one of the first grade teachers came up the hall in laughter induced tears. She handed me a poem about the color blue that one of her students had written. Here is the poem: Blue is my favorite color because it is the color of the sky, and of the ocean, and the color of my friend's shirt.
Only, the young poet had left the 'r' out of 'shirt.' - Jim #teamFFrank

Two school years ago, a teacher walked up to me in the hall. She was laughing so hard she couldn't speak well, so she handed me a piece of paper and squeaked, "read." - Jim #teamFFrank
I obeyed. She stood and watched, knowing when my reaction would come. On the paper was a short non-rhyming verse about the color blue. It had been written by one of her first grade students. - Jim #teamFFrank
It read, "Blue is my favorite color. It is the color of the sky and the sea. It is the color of my friend's shirt." - Jim #teamFFrank
Only, he left the 'r' out of the last word. - Jim #teamFFrank
Let me just say that such a condition would freak me right the funk out! - Jim #teamFFrank

I meant to share this as a SaturdayFF post but all of a sudden it's not Saturday anymore. I was at the bakery (don't look so shocked) a couple of weeks ago. Ob-la-di ob-la-da was playing (Mary had the Beatles mix going). I was singing along as I paid my bill. The guy next to me said, "Great song but do you know what album it's from?"
I said, "The Beatles." - Jim #teamFFrank
He said, a little louder, "Yes, but do you know which Beatles album it's from?" - Jim #teamFFrank
I said, "The Beatles." - Jim #teamFFrank
He looked a little exasperated. "Yes, this is a Beatles song, but do you know which Beatles album it's from?" And then, as if there was no hope for me in this world, he playfully tapped my shoulder and said, "It's Abbey Road." - Jim #teamFFrank
I unleashed my kill move. "Actually it's on what is known as The White Album but the real title is The Beatles." - Jim #teamFFrank
His eyes widened to the size of saucers, or maybe I was just looking forward to drinking my coffee. He croaked, "You're right." - Jim #teamFFrank
I said, "Yes. I am." He said, "You just schooled me." I said, "Yes. I did." - Jim #teamFFrank
"You picked the wrong guy to challenge in Beatles trivia," I said, politely. - Jim #teamFFrank
He even told his wife about it. He said, "I tried to challenge that guy on what Beatles song was playing and he SCHOOLED me!" She looked at me and smiled. Then she looked back at him with a look that I interpreted to mean, "Really? Again?" - Jim #teamFFrank
Wireless charging is my new favorite thing.
