Very cool! Congrats to Andy! - Ken Gidley from Bookmarklet
Andy is a friend of a friend, published this book (his first!) last year, and quit his day job to pursue writing full time. - Ken Gidley
Book has gotten rave reviews, and NYT bestseller status when it debuted (#12). - Ken Gidley
Finally got around to reading this - once I started, it read very quickly, hard to put down. 5 stars. :) - Ken Gidley
I need to read this. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Stephen, I'll see if I can do a Kindle 'loan' for you. - Ken Gidley

Great book. - Amit Patel
Red Planet seems to be similar http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki... - Todd Hoff
I enjoyed it and would definitely watch a screen adaptation. - Jenny H. from Android
Any Bay Area folks interested in a pair of tickets for Sharks vs Kings outdoor game at Levi's Stadium tomorrow (Sat)? Got an extra pair of tickets I'm looking to sell. Let me know asap.
Game is officially sold out - I've still got a pair if you need them! - Ken Gidley
As I said on FB: "Woo-hoo! After a week in Hawaii, I'm so excited to get back to work!" - said no one, ever. 😄
Welcome back Ken! - Louis Gray
18 hours into my in-laws visit and I'm ready to be done with it. Only another 10 days to go. Thankfully, 7 of those will be in Hawaii. Happy Turkey day all!

So we had about 50 kids total for Halloween last night. I have about 350 leftover pieces of candy. And it's almost all stuff I want to eat. This is not going to end well for my waistline.

Testing - my feed is strangely quiet (like no updates for 19+ hours) - is there anybody OUT THERE?
Nice shirt. - Meg VMeg
So strange, usually have dozens of updates every day, but today - silence. - Ken Gidley
Still nothing on my feed but my own post. Not paused by mistake. Logged out and back in. Same on Safari on Mac and on iPhone. - Ken Gidley from iPhone

I see a few updates today, but most are marked as having occurred 18+ hours ago. I seem to have slipped into some sort of 'update once a day' timeslip. :) - Ken Gidley
Maybe something related to javascript or auto-reloading? - Brian Johns

Interesting theory on who Jon Snows parents are, very well researched/presented. - Ken Gidley from Bookmarklet
On the one hand I'm pretty interested in what they've come up with, on the other, I'd be 95% more interested if it weren't in video form. Gimme a chart, people. - Jennifer Dittrich
It doesn't add anything new, except for being a shiny pretty video. It's been written and copied in text for at least nearly a year. Here's one from January, with a handful of other theories. http://io9.com/5979065... - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
Jennifer, this theory goes back a decade or more. The first time I saw it was here: http://awoiaf.westeros.org/index... - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Oh, I know - it's what I'd assuming in my own reading of the first couple of books, I just prefer articles. (I have the 'ugh, video' reaction sometimes.) I am watching the video now, and it does have an appropriate amount of charts :D - Jennifer Dittrich

New car - Chevy Volt. Made my father happy, he's a die hard Chevy man. PS. Anyone want an 2001 Audi S4? Only 176K miles. :)
NewVolt 001.jpg
Sweet! How's the mileage? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
First commute today, all electric: ~25 miles so far, and car says another 23 still available. Hope to top it off at the office before I head home, so no gas at all today. Between the fuel savings and reduced cost of maintaining the Audi, the lease is ALMOST break even. - Ken Gidley
Sweet! - Brian Johns
For any LA Kings fans out there... :) #goSharks!

2) Believe - Ken Gidley
3) Cosmos - Ken Gidley
4) Resurrection - Ken Gidley
5) Bar Rescue - Ken Gidley
6) Masterpiece Classis - should have been 'Downton Abbey', but was 'Mr Selfridge, Season 2' - no idea why it chose that episode to record. - Ken Gidley
Downton Abbey Season 4 is done. Masterpiece Classic is an anthology series, so it's moved on. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Ah, thanks for the explanation. Seems like very odd coding for the Season Passes... - Ken Gidley
It messes up our data because some providers code it as season 4 of DA, others as season 8 of MC. - Stephen Mack from iPhone

Had some episodes of vertigo over the past 24 hours when tilting my head. Dr. diagnosed me over the phone, and prescribed YouTube for cure. And it worked. Life is weird.
Video of how to do the cure: http://www.youtube.com/watch... - Ken Gidley
After reading about this, I'm 95% sure other FF'ers treated themselves this way - Kevin Fox maybe? - Ken Gidley
Wow. How do you feel now? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Fine after 3 minutes of 'repositioning my ear rocks' :) - Ken Gidley
Before I did the 'maneuver', I could make the room spin by tilting my head to the left. After, I can't reproduce the effect. - Ken Gidley
I love living in the future. - Scott. Cat Herder.
Kevin had the same thing. Used the exact same video. It took a few times but it worked. So awesome. - Rachel Lea Fox

Hmm, I guess someone re-enabled the Twitter imports to FF today.

Any Yahoo email users out there? Today I noticed they have an 'autocompose Valentine' option in the webmail interface. Pretty funny stuff.
"Dear muffin, How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Your generosity has made the world a better place. Your touch makes my pulse accelerate. Never gonna give you up. Never gonna let you down. Never gonna run around and desert you. Butterfly kisses, Ken" - Ken Gidley
Each time you select an option from the drop down menu, you get a new message body... - Ken Gidley
Hehe! That's great. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
There are three different modalities - 'Crazy in Love' (my sample above), 'Friendly in Love', and 'All Outta Love' - Ken Gidley
'Friendly in Love' sample: "To my sister from another mister, If I had the whole world to choose from, I would pick you to be in my family. You're seriously the coolest. You're somebody I would call if my car broke down and I needed a ride. I'd share my umbrella with you anytime. With fondness, Ken" - Ken Gidley
'All Outta Love' sample: "Dear Madam, Who needs love when we have amazing friends? If I had the power to rename Valentine's Day, I would call it February Fools' Day. Someone should remind all those hand-holders that it's flu season. I'm absolutely not crying right now, not even a little. Never mind, Ken" - Ken Gidley
'All Outta Love' again: "Dear resident, I was thinking about love and I couldn't stop laughing. Have you ever noticed that cupid rhymes with stupid? I'm excited just thinking about all the plans I don't have to make tonight. Ugh, what was this email about? I got so bored I forgot. Oh the agony, Ken" - Ken Gidley
