Time for a cat scan! - Jemm

This is clearly not my cat. If this was my cat he's have one arm shoved down into the printer trying to tear up all the internal whirling bits with his bare claws. - Soup in a TARDIS
LOL, Soup! - Kol Tregaskes
Too Funny! Reminds me of the San Mateo Cat Shelter where one of the cats loves to sleep on top of the laster printer where the paper comes out... - Greg Lato

this is underfaksink at its worzt - pb:
Petr, I have no idea what you mean, but thank you. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
@Kol .. :] that, partially, might have been the purpose.... I don't know it exactly either. :] .. was I reflecting on a cat under the fax, and that it is hard to fax that way ... /?:] ... "underfaxing at its worst" .. - pb:
Ah, OK, Petr. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
there ya have me ! :] .... see, to be honest with you, i saw this pic couple days ago, but i let it go, without posting it ..... what does that make me? :] - pb:
OMGosh, just 23 more likes to beat this: http://beta.friendfeed.com/imified... ;-) - Kol Tregaskes

Just 5 more likes needed. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
Fax, Petr. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
even a flat cat... faxes just can't handle the hair. You'd have to shave the cat first, else the hair will burn and stick to the drum... a mess! (I am extrapolating from transparencies, mind, i don't have access to a cat to test) - Iphigenie
Hehe, Joelle. This is now tied for the 'likes' top stop. One more then, hehe. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
Hehe, Greg. Blimey! Erm, is that not far from 500 likes now? ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
Bloody marvelous, Kol. Wish I could like it again... too cute (and help u to 500 likes). - Roberto Bonini
I couldn't believe it when I logged on from the morning over posting it and saw it was at something 200 likes! You all have a strange fetish with cats and fax machines, hehe. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
Am I the only one who saw this and their first thought was - My goodness did someone break that cats neck? It still freaks me out a little - Steve C, Team Marina
Steve, it does look a little out of place, but cats are pretty bendy. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
They fax much better if you flatten them first. What? - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
LOL, Kevin. - Kol Tregaskes
i can also imagine the cat going there cause it is snug and warm - Iphigenie
Ey, it would be a tad warm on there, especially after a long working day. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
Caption which needs to be said aloud: Uh Ohz, I'm totally FAXED! - sofarsoShawn
Hehe, Shawn. 10 more for the big 5-0-0. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
Countdown! 8 more now! - Mike Nayyar

this feed actually shows us once again "the real" conqueror of the webland! :D - آریــوبرزن

We added a few features you might have missed recently: support for imgur.com thumbnails (http://friendfeed.com/search...) and "Best of" for users/groups on the iPhone (http://friendfeed.com/iphone...)
Screen shot 2009-10-29 at 3.05.19 PM.png
Rumors of FriendFeed's death are greatly exaggerated. (Thank you, Ben!) - Stephen Mack
Thanks, guys :) - Franc, a rememberer
Stephen, very happy to see new features like this, but I think the "death" part is the major users reducing their activity. I'd love to see some support from Facebook in promoting FriendFeed more to encourage those users to go back. Or maybe they don't want to? Regardless, bonus for me! Thanks Benjamin - you're awesome! - Jesse Stay
Jesse, fair enough but major users always did come and go. Some of the departees who left said they were doing so because there was no new development. Clearly not all development is halted. Last week Paul hinted that FF may receive a major new feature, and characterized his participation as "20% time" -- I'll take that. - Stephen Mack
I backed down off the all caps. The group "best of" is really useful, love it. - Stephen Mack
Stephen, I agree - I'd just like some confirmation that Facebook cares about all this so I can know whether to focus my efforts on Facebook or FriendFeed or both. - Jesse Stay
I noticed the best of on the iPhone the other day, wrote it out on a cake and then ated it. - Josh Haley
Thanks for the update Ben - AJ Batac
Jesse, I think you should focus where your users are focused. What do SocialToo users want? But if they want Facebook focus, you should still keep an eye on FriendFeed, since the future Facebook will look a lot more like FriendFeed. - Bruce Lewis
Bruce, I'm not sure we know that. - Jesse Stay
Paul Buchheit said the FB acquisition was attractive because of shared vision/direction. I would be surprised if a lot of that vision wasn't already embodied in this product right here. - Bruce Lewis

Watch: Astronaut wrings out washcloth in space, and it's stunning - latimes.com
"This week, commander Chris Hadfield, an astronaut aboard the International Space Station, demonstrated what happens when you get a washcloth soaking in space and then wring it out. The experiment, called "Wring It Out" was designed by two 10th-graders in Nova Scotia. Kendra Lamke and Meredith Hatfield won a contest sponsored by the Canada Space Agency to come up with an experiment for an astronaut to perform in micro-gravity." - Steve C, Team Marina from Bookmarklet
Let's hear it for surface tension! - Brian Johns
Also, Canadian astronauts make great commentators, based on this particular example. - walt crawford

I'm not that organized, but I have at least labelled all my cables. And this past year, I even put banana plugs on all my speaker cables, so the next time I have to hook it all up should go a good bit faster. - Andrew C (✔)

Do you use Google image search? What do you like about it? What would you like to see change?
Haven't tried it yet. - Todd Hoff
Yes. I'm not wild about the most recent rev. I liked it better when you didn't get a pop-up (javascript?) window when trying to hit an image link. Besides using it to look for pictures to use for memes and jokes (isn't that what most people do?), I like using it to check that the hits I'm getting are about what I'm really looking for. So, for instance, I'm having to make up work on a... more... - Spidra Webster
I'm surprised you like the old version better -- the landing page with the full size image superimposed over the page it's on, then you had to press the back button and click the next result? - Bruce Lewis
Hmm. I wonder if I'm describing it right. As I recall, I used to search on Google.com. Then I'd select "Images" tab and get a bunch of thumbnails of images with the site and the image size. And when I hit the thumbnails I could check the site. It's not that I abhor the concept of a preview. But in practice those windows (whether they're made with javascript or whatever) tend to be buggy... more... - Spidra Webster
I like being able to do reverse image searches (i.e., enter an image url and find the source). I don't always find what I'm looking for, but it's a nice feature to have. - John (bird whisperer)
Sorry about that, Spidra. - Bruce Lewis
John, I like that too. - Bruce Lewis
I like the pictures. - Jenny H.
I do use it - I didn't particularly like the adjustment to the image view, mostly because it wasn't obvious the first several times that the behavior had changed (that I needed to click something to close) and it meant that I had to move the mouse around more. Other than that, I've found it pretty useful. I'd love to more easily discard results selectively, when images show up that aren't at all what I was looking for. - Jennifer Dittrich
What John said. A reverse image search would be great but I have no idea whether it's even possible. - Spidra Webster
Jennifer, try the arrow buttons. The discarding idea is interesting. - Bruce Lewis
Spidra, is there a camera icon in the right side of your Google search box? I don't know if it's on all browsers. If it's there, click it for search by image. - Bruce Lewis
It's been pretty terrible. I've complained about it several times. I dislike not being able to see snippets of the search results text and having to mouse over or click to even see which website each result comes from. I guess that new "try these, too" feature could be of some use eventually, but I'm still extremely annoyed with the latest changes. - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
I tend to start my Google searches using the search box at the upper right hand of Safari. I usually only go to Google's home page when there's a particular doodle I want to see. There's no camera icon there. - Spidra Webster
Kamilah, there's a tradeoff between space for text and space for images...I wonder how hard it would be to give people a choice. - Bruce Lewis
I use it to find pictures to enhance my FriendFeed posts. :) - Eric - Final Countdown from iPhone
@Spidra - there already is reverse image search. I use it via the Firefox extension "Who Stole My Pics" (maybe an overly confrontational name) which lets me do reverse image search straight from the right click context menu. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
Ah. I'm off Firefox for the moment because it's been crashy for me. I was trying to remember why I most wanted a reverse search and I think it's for ID purposes. When I have a photo of some plant or something and I want to know what I'm looking at, it's my hope that matching it with the same photo or similar ones will lead me to the info. - Spidra Webster
I use it to look up colors of different superheroes for my son when he is coloring them - Mr. The Jason Fleming from Android
Finding the exact photo might help, but a merely similar photo, graphically, will almost definitely be of another plant. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
Yeah, I figure the tech just isn't there yet. But I can dream. - Spidra Webster
I like the new format: the ability to preview an image, go directly to the original image, and to see similar images to the one I am previewing. - Friar Will
OT, but if Firefox is crashing for you, you might try turning off hardware acceleration... I've heard that's been unstable lately. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
Oh, jeez, yeah, I use it all the time. I use it on the reference desk, in the way that librarians use clip art books for patrons wanting specific images. I used it got tattoo ideas. I use it to look for people. I use it to look for random, strange images to share and alter. I haven't had good luck with dragging an image to the search box. It has to be very clear and specific. I'm still adjusting to the new Images, but nothing has made me too cranky. - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
I'm on a Mac and I don't get a camera icon (checked on Firefox, Chrome, and Safari). On Chrome, there's a microphone icon inside the search box. I won't be at a PC to check until tomorrow. - bentley
When I'm in reference (and for personal searches) I use google image search all the time. We also teach it as part of Intro to Internet 2: Searching. - bentley
I wish it were easier to limit to reusable / creative commons images - since I often use it to find images for my blog or other academic illustrative purposes - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
I like seeing the preview image on a page by itself when clicking the thumbnail, and having the option to visit the source page or not..rather than an overlay on the source page, potentially exposing the computer to possible malware that may be embedded on the source page. This is going to save me a lot of time, trouble, and work removing malware from some people's computers. What would... more... - April Russo (FForever!)
I and several of my coworkers have it as our jobs to improve image search. I seriously consider lots of ideas, especially ones accompanied by explanations of what kinds of searching they serve better and why. - Bruce Lewis
I use it all the time. Just yesterday I was trying to figure out whether my "juvenile hawk" photo was actually of a juvenile bald eagle. Browsing GIS made me think no, it really is a hawk. Besides, if I stopped using GIS, Radhika M would kill me ;) - Amit Patel
I use image search; it's awesome. I use it to identify foreign words that I suspect are nouns, to get pretty images for documents. Things to change: Personal Results don't tend to be relevant; until they are, I wish it showed fewer of them... by which I mean none. (Yes, that's a search setting, but turning it off loses my "never show results from these domains" setting.) If I have... more... - Larry Hosken
I like it, including the recent changes. I use it nearly every day but mostly on desktop. Havent tried it on the tablet yet. - Jim #teamFFrank
I just did a search for "Desmids slide" and after checking out the preview, hit the site. It took me to a completely different (porn) site. Given that I'm on MacOS, I'd be a little surprised if this switcheroo were due to a virus on my system. However, I'm afraid to try to replicate the steps in case it does lead to malware. That's the first time that's ever happened to me on Google Image Search. That is, first time a seemingly legit URL switched up to a porn one once I hit the link through Google. - Spidra Webster
Spidra, that's probably just the way the site was designed. If the user-agent comes from a search engine, it displays a fake page, otherwise it redirects to the other site (like just about any short-url service does). Probably not malware, just shady practices. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
Thanks, Jimminy. I didn't understand that possibility. - Spidra Webster
I admit the results for https://www.google.com/search... past the first page weren't what I was expecting. - Amit Patel

I think it took 5 minutes to setup the Surface. Nice! http://t.co/rm8RFvzIEN

added a bluetooth mouse, and a network printer. cant use the version of office installed, we have volume licensing. not sure how much trouble it will be to add it to the domain, since it does not have ethernet. - Mike Nencetti
88.4 gig free space - Mike Nencetti
uninstalling and reinstalling office 2013 was fast. did not time it. - Mike Nencetti
old 17 inch dell monitor does not work well. it cannot display 1600 x 1050, so you cannot clone displays, only extend. will test a newer monitor. - Mike Nencetti
a dell E2211H 21" monitor works fine, cloning and extended. this is a using a mini display port to vga adapter. - Mike Nencetti
not easy, but using vpn was able to add to the domain and create a local account. our firewall blocks much of the Windows 8 GUI - Mike Nencetti
After a reboot was able to access corporate wifi, VPN no longer needed. my only nagging issue is the occasionally slow bluetooth mouse it is a gear head. - Mike Nencetti
So far the biggest issue is the VGA to mini port adapter. Even the newer monitor does not properly connect, sometimes. I have to reconnect it multiple times to get it to work. I have tried all modes, even turning off the Surface video. Taking it home tonight. This may replace my work laptop. - Mike Nencetti
Boot up and log in using the window/power button combo worked. Kinda hard to ctrl-alt-del with a touch screen. Sitting in the car waiting for my wife. Using the iphone5 as a hotspot. - Mike Nencetti
note to self - remember to bring Surface power cable home. I suppose I had better order a 2nd one. Also left the pen at work. The Surface already knew my home WiFi password, even though I was not logged into my outlook.com account. Logging in at home is quick, even with the domain id. RDP back into work via VPN is nice. My wife said the screen is too small while I was showing her Outlook 2013.. She tried to do an iPad pinch to increase font... So for some this screen size will be an issue. - Mike Nencetti
I noticed how the Win8 GUI added icons for my Citrix apps. I was puzzled as to how Office 2010 just appeared. - Mike Nencetti
Battery life is much like any other intel I5 laptop I have worked with. It does not suck, but it is no iPad. - Mike Nencetti
My Mac Mini DV to VGA adapter works better than the device I purchased from Microsoft. Odd. The fact that it is not designed for the angled Surface does not seem to matter. A least I have a solution if we purchase these for execs. - Mike Nencetti
Cannot load Win 7 remote server admin tools. Will go look for Win 8 tools if I have time. (EDIT) took about 5 min to install. Win 8 GUI added the icons. - Mike Nencetti
IE10 is touch screen, and Chrome is not, at least when using FriendFeed. I only have sporadic periods to test this. Busy week. Like it so far. It forces me to learn Windows 8. - Mike Nencetti
Do you have Chrome launched in desktop mode, or in Windows 8 mode? Either way, it should work with touch. It doesn't seem to support auto-correct, though - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Desktop mode - Mike Nencetti
the stylus works for Chrome. Not the finger. I cant click Post - Mike Nencetti
Weird. Do you think it's just because of the size of the target? I'm working on a 20" touchscreen Windows8 computer, and don't really have any issues in Chrome. That said, I have read that, on the Surface, IE (and a bunch of other apps) automatically scale things up to either 125% or 150% zoom; so maybe Chrome isn't doing that (making it more difficult to hit the target than it is in IE). - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
It has something to do with Chrome, since with IE10 I can click using the same fingers that fail on Chrome. I have a Bluetooth mouse, plus the Keyboard trackpad, it is not an annoying issue. I have not had the time to Google it. (Edit. I am editing this using the IE10 browser) - Mike Nencetti
good example, in IE10 I can use my finger to scroll up and down on FF, not in Chrome. - Mike Nencetti
80$ for the ac adapter. It has a USB charging port. Was going to get a spare... - Mike Nencetti from iPhone

Sitting Is the Smoking of Our Generation - Nilofer Merchant - Harvard Business Review
"I've learned that if you want to get out of the box thinking, you need to literally get out of the box. When you step outside, you give yourself over to nature, respecting its cycles and unpredictability. It keeps me more awake to what is happening around me by experiencing the extreme heats of summer, or the frigid power of winter. It makes me present to the world around me instead of being insulated from it." - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet

I should really go check Facebook to see what's been going on with my extended family.
Problem is, FriendFeed is more fun. Oh well, if it's important they'll email. - Bruce Lewis
Best of day / week works for me. - Bruce Lewis
I think an uncle had a birthday today. I haven't been on FB in a month. It's just too headache-inducing. - Anika
Hah! I think I have you beat, Anika. I was just on FB ... well ... actually about a month for me too. - Bruce Lewis
=) BTW, it's nice to see you back around here. I've missed you! - Anika
I actually went on vacation this month and didn't bring a computer. I've also been playing Ingress. I don't think I'll ever totally leave FriendFeed. - Bruce Lewis
I had assumed you were super busy with work. How was your vacation? - Anika
Fabulous. It was my first time ever in a warm place in February -- Cancun. - Bruce Lewis
Oh, how nice. I expect the whole family enjoyed it as well. You guys are going to get addicted. My uncle (the one whose birthday is most likely today) went to Cancun in a February 18 years ago. Now, they go down there every year. - Anika
I don't know if we'll go down every year, but I bet we'll go down again. - Bruce Lewis
Definitely everybody loved it. We swam with dolphins. - Bruce Lewis
Oh wow! That is so cool. Do you have pictures? - Anika

OurDoings closing to new users, continuing for existing users
"I've worked out an arrangement that avoids hurting those of you who've come to rely on OurDoings. All existing users can keep going at the same level of service." - Bruce Lewis from Bookmarklet
"The only wrinkle in all this good news is that I can't run a business that competes with my employer. OurDoings competes with Picasaweb and with Blogger. What would normally happen in this situation is that OurDoings would be shut down. But Google is not a normal company." - Micah

Bittersweet? :( - Anne Bouey
Yes, it is bittersweet. But Google is definitely worth it. - Bruce Lewis
I'm glad you were able to get a reasonable accommodation from them. - Anne Bouey
Me too. It was the opposite of cookie-cutter treatment. - Bruce Lewis
Finally got around to viewing this post. You need to remind me to start uploading pics to Picasaweb. :) I like the simplicity of taking a pic and emailing it to a site. Then having it propagate to other sites automatically. - Mike Nencetti

Hurricane Sandy Aftermath: What Happens to the Birds?
"The devastating superstorm that hit the U.S. East Coast this week didn't just wreak havoc on human communities—the spawn of Hurricane Sandy also damaged habitat for coastal bird species. (See "Hurricane Sandy: Why Full Moon Makes 'Frankenstorm' More Monstrous.") We talked to Bryan Watts, director of the Center for Conservation Biology in Williamsburg, Virginia, to get a bird's-eye perspective on the disaster." - John (bird whisperer) from Bookmarklet

Odd pic I took while waiting for my wife to buy cards at Hallmark. Did not think much of it. getting +1's on Google.

I just saw the news. Saw. An image on a phone in a stream of collective consciousness. There's nothing new I can say that hasn't been said of Steve Jobs, except something that is, technically, unrelated: I'm going back to school. Full time. Electrical/Instrumentation training. Decision was made earlier today. Orientation is tomorrow.
I said it wasn't technically related, but of course in another sense it is - Micah
It's good news, Micah. Congrats! - Ha3rvey (on hiatus)
Thank you, Ha3rvey. - Micah
Congrats sir! - Scott. Cat Herder.

Love you, Micah. Congrats on heading back to school. Very proud of you. - Derrick
Congrats and good luck, sir. - chrisofspades
That's awesome! Don't limit yourself. - Gabrielle
You have to be able to do what you love to be truly successful - that's one thing Steve stressed throughout his life. Go after it, and don't let anything take it away. - teleken from BuddyFeed
