Ooooh. - Jennifer Dittrich from FFHound!
very tasty choice, if you have to wait until 8:30 to eat dinner. :) - holly #ravingfangirl
Meg made this last week. only with mint instead of arugula. very yum - jambina
i totally would have put mint on it if i had remembered to get some. :) - holly #ravingfangirl
I really wish Costco ever sold arugula. - Meg VMeg

Woot, I was published in Hacker Monthly http://hackermonthly.com/issue-4...
Nice! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
The comment from gggg was—interesting. - Professor A.I.
Also you've got one of the most popular posts of the past week still sitting on the front page, for you're updated interactive page. https://news.ycombinator.com/item... http://www.redblobgames.com/pathfin... - NOT THE CRICKET
Comment from gggg? I missed that. NOT THE CRICKET: yep, fun!! :) Also on reddit/r/gamedev and reddit/r/programming - Amit Patel
congrats! - imabonehead
Amit, the comment from gggg - http://theory.stanford.edu/~amitp... - NOT THE CRICKET
I thought Amit handled gggg in a very gentlemanly manner, and the red starfish-like avatar reminded me of the FriendFeed of old. - Professor A.I.
Ah, that gggg! Those kinds of comments are rare but they do happen. I try to be polite to everyone. - Amit Patel

Ooh. Where's the page from? - Laura
A postcard book called _Secret Garden_ by Johanna Basford, available from Amazon. - LB says, "TGIF!" from Android
Cool - WarLord
I have that postcard book on my wishlist ^_^ - Melly

Has anyone here experimented with Transcranial direct-current stimulation?
Glad you asked. A drinkin buddy of mine brought this up the other night and we're very tempted to. We need a skull map though. Or a neuroscientist consultant. - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich from Android
No, but I'm interested. Over 10 years ago, Melinda was seeing a psychologist involved with neuro-bio-feedback, who was mapping her brainwaves. Unfortunately, she moved away from the area. - Greg GuitarBuster
I have some friends who have experimented with it -- with interesting and good results, according to them. - Sean McBride
My brain seems quite interested in its own continued survival, so I'm, or should I say my brain, is hesitant to do these kind of things on the off chance it my turn its little grey cells to goo. - Todd Hoff

Are they Sakura Gelly Rolls? - Laura
They're a no-name kind from Big Lots. See http://friendfeed.com/colorin... - LB says, "TGIF!" from Android
I got Sakura Gelly Rolls for a friend (birthday present). I was looking at the Pilot Juice for me, mostly because it has lots of non-glitter colors too, and I want all my pens to be consistent. - Amit Patel

It's very confusing to work on a big project with people who don't use Dropbox or Google Docs or anything similar.
yep. I'm also confused when they say things like "i'm not to good with technology, so it's better to call me than do email" - Sir Shuping is just sir
"Oh, can you send it to me as an attachment?" *headdesk* - Catherine Pellegrino
Yep - lris
Or people who say 'text me' instead of using email. - Professor A.I.
Or who CALL ME. ON THE PHONE. Because I asked questions on their website ONE MINUTE AGO. - Mary B: #TeamMonique
if a project is urgent and the need for assistance is immediate, the fact that phone calls can't be accidentally deleted and don't require waiting around is HUGE. IM is a decent stand-in. sometimes. - Big Joe Silence
our faculty senate president doesn't understand google forms. which we're using to collect feedback at a major faculty event in about 4 weeks. - ~Courtney F
I have so little patience for this kind of thing. Keeping current with the tools used in a work environment seems like a basic requirement for continued employment. I always want to say to these people, "You have a brain, use it and learn something new." Sigh. - Laura Krier
I'm working on a complex SaaS migration right now and *thank god* we're using Basecamp. We always used Basecamp on the prior work I did. Our org as a whole has not standard tool and it just pains me to no end. We have Sharepoint and Chatter but that is so inferior. I wish we just had Asana or Box or something. I force people to use GDocs because ... I just can't with the revision nightmare. - Laura Norvig
I've used Basecamp and it always seemed remedial to me. Stuck in some kind of Web 1.0 time warp along with Salesforce. - Professor A.I.

thanks y'all! I still feel kinda giddy about such a deep and unexpected compliment. so of course at the thought of her leaving me I immediately explained how it's all very tenuous and I could fall backwards at any moment. we had a good laugh, and then she explained about Flight From Health. good times. - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich

7 Unconventional and “Crazy” Ways to Increase Productivity - Pick the Brain | Motivation and Self Improvement
"Being productive is one of the phrases we hear over and over again in our day-to-day lives. In some contexts, it means doing work when you’re supposed to. In others, it’s all about cleaning the house during your days off. Whatever your personal definition is, however, we can all agree on one thing: some days, productivity can be as hard to find as a unicorn in a haystack." - CAJ hates pants from Bookmarklet

Tumblr question: is it possible to "reblog" from Tumblr to a standard library website? Any chance this could be done automagically? (I want a photo site where I can post images & info. that will automatically update on my library's home page. Instagram isn't it. Maybe Flickr?)
Tumblr has an RSS feed, so you could feed in the entries using an RSS import system. - Joe

Do you have a safe deposit box? Like, one that you set up, not one that your parents set up which incidentally contains items belonging to you.
Yes. It has stuff like wills, deeds, etc. - John Dupuis
I got a good deal on one years ago at the Chase on University Place. I tried to find similar rates on the UWS but had no luck. - Stephen Francoeur
Yeah, it's got a few things in it. I need to put our wills in it. (NTS: get wills.) - Catherine Pellegrino
yes, we keep things like wills and living wills in it. When my spouse was still on a visa, we kept all of her official documents there - it would have been terrifying to lose them in a fire or to burglary, etc. My ex actually kept a relatively large stash of money (a few thousand) in hers. - Sarah
No, but I probably need to put my will into one. Or at least get that extra copy sent to my friend who lives out of state and is the back up executor. - Hedgehog
I preface this by stating flat out I know next to nothing about wills, but how do you get around the chicken-and-egg problem of needing the will to access the safe deposit box to access the will? - Mark Trapp
yes we have one. ^ copy of ... is how you get around. i actually don't know for sure what's in there. documents about our cars and our house and my engagement ring. - Christina Pikas
Yes, what Christina said. We have a copy, our lawyer has a copy, and the original is in the safe deposit box. - Sarah
i got one in the mid-80s, i forget why. later, once i married, we kept our passports and leftover foreign currency and titles and wills and other documents in it. my wife and i decided to ditch it a few years back for what we feel is a better solution for us. - Big Joe Silence
Yep. Stack of cash, extra passports for various nationalities/identities, loaded handgun, microfilm... the usual. - SAM
I used to, then I moved and never got around to setting up a new one but I should've. Since I'm about to move again, I think I will this time. I just need to find a place to replace my good credit union. - Betsy
@SAM: i always knew there was more to you than a ranch and a guitar. time to come in. - Big Joe Silence
Used to and probably should again, not for wills (exc. copy) so much as for other legal documents. - Walt Crawford
yes. I've kept one since I left home. It has original documents (birth certificate, passport, vaccine records, etc.), inherited jewelry and other tidbits of reasonable value, and a meager stash of emergency cash. - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich
Yes, I've had one since my mid-20s, a long time ago. :) Contents include wills, trusts, deeds, titles, passports, vaccination records, marriage license, jewelry, and copies of wills/trusts of relatives that name us as executors. Also contains some of the same for kids who have not yet obtained a box. - Anne Bouey
Nope. I also need to make a will. And get some witnesses to sign my durable power of attorney. - laura x
Christina and Sarah: Aha, makes sense. Thanks guys! - Mark Trapp
Never thought about it. Vital legal documents are in a pocket in my go-bag. Not so useful if fire breaks out when I'm not at home, granted. Should scan and email copies to myself, at least. - Deborah Fitchett
A cemetery worker suggested having important papers placed in waterproof baggies or containers and then placed in the freezer. In circumstance of fire this appears one of the last to be damaged. - Janet

Predict a new social feature: Google Now Cards against Humanity.

TED Talk 2014 | Ray Kurzweil: “Get ready for hybrid thinking” video now playing | KurzweilAI - http://www.kurzweilai.net/ted-ray...
"Two hundred million years ago, our mammal ancestors developed a new brain feature: the neocortex. This stamp-sized piece of tissue, wrapped around a brain the size of a walnut, is the key to what humanity has become. Now, futurist Ray Kurzweil suggests, we should get ready for the next big leap in brain power, as we tap into the computing power in the cloud." - Sean McBride
How do I "tap into" the computing power in the cloud? - Professor A.I.
Turn on the faucet? - Sean McBride
“Kurzweil predicts that in 20 years nano-bots will enter the brain through capillaries to connect us to a synthetic neocortex in the cloud. So if someone walks past you whom you want to impress, but your 300 million modules aren’t enough to come up with something clever to say, all you need to do is tap into the neocortex in the cloud and another billion modules will become available. The future human, says Kurzweil, will be a biological and nonbiological hybrid.” - Sean McBride
Does that sound crazy? Not really -- the dream of biological and nonbiological hybrids is within reach. - Sean McBride
I think you need it so you don't forget to include words like 'sound' in your comments. As for merging with the cloud, it sounds kind of big brother to me. Do you want to merge with the majority of Americans? - Professor A.I.
Thanks for the edit. One imagines that you would have the option to manage and filter your connections to a global superintelligence any way you like. - Sean McBride
Re: Big Brother -- we've already been there for years. Snowden opened up a small window on the true state of affairs. Super Google has been around for quite some time, operating quietly in the background, out of sight. - Sean McBride
