The Amount of Trash America Produces is Staggering. So Why Don't We Copy Taiwan? - http://magazine.good.is/article...
The Amount of Trash America Produces is Staggering. So Why Don't We Copy Taiwan?
"When it’s garbage day in Taipei, the capital of Taiwan, you won’t see abandoned trash bags on the streets waiting for pickup, as you might in Manhattan. Instead, you’ll find Taiwanese citizens lining up to heave their own bags into the garbage truck each and every night. By turning rubbish collection into a daily civic duty, this island of 23.5 million has been remarkably successful at achieving something that eludes most developing nations: The richer Taiwan gets, the less trash it produces." - rönin from Bookmarklet
"The former minister of Taiwan’s Environmental Protection Administration, Dr. Eugene Chien, who helped create the program during his tenure, says its success proves that if you educate kids, they do the work for you. “If you tell the adults that they must separate the garbage, they get mad with you,” Dr. Chien told a group of journalists at a meeting in November. “But if I teach their son or their daughter, then the parent will say, ‘Why is my child so smart?’ and they will do it.”" - rönin
Do we have the concept of "civic duty" here? - Brian Johns
We used to, at least. - Spidra Webster
The not leaving trash bags outside for pickup makes sense considering how hot & humid Taiwan is year round. When I was living in Taipei they hadn't started the blue bag only restriction yet but I can imagine that not going over well here. - rönin

Every 25-Year-Old In America Should See This Chart - Yahoo Finance - http://finance.yahoo.com/news...
Or, why I have already lost in life with no chance to catch up with the vast majority of my peers, who are "haves" by comparison. - Julian from Bookmarklet
Paying for one's twenties in one's forties is not a good way to be. - Julian
I'm totally screwed. I'm 35 and still haven't really invested anything (nor do I really have any room in my paycheck to do so). - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
What he said ^^^. Except change that number to 42. My investment/retirement planning so far just involves an inheritance and some serious hope... - WebGoddess
Better late than never. You can save some now, and 30-40 years of growth is still a good long time for it to grow. Sure, a million is good, but 250K in savings is better than 0. - Joe
In other words, don't worry about what you didn't do in the past, but you can start with saving 1% now, 2% next year, etc. Starting small is ok. - Joe
What Joe says. (OTOH, that chart seems to assume 8% annual returns over the long haul. Lots'o'luck with that...especially when you eventually do near retirement and are less willing to see your 401(k) go down by 50% in one bad year.) - Walt Crawford

Last night I learnt that Americans don't usually like sauce on their steak... Or butter the bread in a sandwich... Is this true?
Yes to both - for me, anyway. Had quite a shock learning what a bacon butty was. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
So if I made a tomato sandwich (white buttered bread with sliced tomato and a little salt) would this get me weird looks? - Johnny from iPhone
i make tomato sandwiches like that with mayonnaise instead of butter. - kendrak
If the steak is a really good cut of meat, and it's cooked & seasoned properly, then I won't use any sauce. But I have a hard time believing Americans don't like sauce on their steak - what's your definition of sauce? Barbecue, Worcestershire sauce, or...? As for buttering the bread in a sandwich, I don't know that you'd get weird looks, but you might if you buttered your bread then added another condiment, such as mayonnaise. - Corinne L
Do you aussies have miracle whip for meat and cheese sandwiches? - Joe
Corinne... I do. Bread and butter is the base then stuff like mayo gets added on. Joe, no. - Johnny from iPhone
The steak thing doesn't sound right to me, at least for the south and midwest. It's pretty rare to not see someone putting A1, BBQ sauce, Tabasco, or somesuch on their steak, if it comes without a sauce. Also, you do your sandwiches like Uli does. But no, I don't know any Americans who use butter as the base. We tend to start with mayo, mustard, ketchup, and/or pickle relish, depending on the sandwich. - Kirsten
We usually use just mayo by itself - either one provides a good fat barrier (so the bread doesn't get soggy from other ingredients.) The sauce thing isn't uncommon, but it doesn't feel like something everyone does one way or the other. I prefer it without in most cases, but like it sometimes. - Jennifer Dittrich
Depends on the cut. I like some A1 or worcester sauce on sirloin. Mayo and mustard for sandwiches. - Rodfather
I would have said that no sauce is the usual. - Steele Lawman
Don't tell anyone else, but I like to put ketchup (or catsup) on my steak. - Joe
Most sandwich places will put in butter only if you ask for it. - Bruce Lewis
A sandwich is a butter delivery system. No butter and it's not a proper sandwich! - Marina's Godmother :-)
Oh see, Helen, that's butter-bread (as it's called in my family, at least). A snack, sure. But not a sandwich. - Kirsten
Buttered bread for sandwiches: Rare, I think (certainly not for me--horseradish sauce or chipotle, depending on the meat). Sauce on steaks: All over the place, but the better the steak, the less likely the sauce, at least for me. - Walt Crawford
My ex-husband was a butter-then-mayo sandwich person until I said to him, "do you realize you're adding a lot of calories doing it that way?" Never crossed his mind because it was the way he was raised (he was from central Pennsylvania & his mom was Pennsylvania Dutch, which may have had a lot to do with it). - Corinne L
I don't generally put butter on sandwiches (unless it's the outside of a grilled cheese sandwich). Usually it's mustard or the like, depending on the other sandwich contents. I don't generally have sauce with steak unless the steak is really dry or tough. I will eat butter on toast or on bread that I eat alongside a meal. - John (bird whisperer)
I'm convinced that this is why a true Aussie restaurant/cafe in the States wouldn't work. There are tiny fundamentals that would shock a lot of folks but the culture isn't exotic enough for people to embrace it. - Johnny
my mom used to put butter underneath the mayo but then she started worrying even more about dad's health. <threadjack> had a "club" sandwich in UAE in a British bar. so not what I had in mind. It was weird and disappointing. - Christina Pikas
A bacon-based sandwich in the UAE? - Johnny
Johnny, I think you could have an authentic cafe, but not a chain restaurant. Those, by nature, smooth out the edges of any cuisine (even American dishes) so it isn't quite what it started as. - Jennifer Dittrich
oh yeah there and Bahrain - not really observant. when I was there. - Christina Pikas
What Jenn said. Americans love to claim they have had authentic [insert cuisine type here] at some obscure restaurant. - Corinne L
I now butter my sandwiches but that's because I'm attached to someone of British extraction. - Sarah from iPhone
I just looked up the menu for Outback Steakhouse. I literally can't. - Johnny
Oh, yeah. I can't imagine that's anyone's native cuisine. - Jennifer Dittrich
No bloomin onion? - Joe
No. - Johnny
Heh. I never really thought of Outback as a place to eat Australian cuisine. It's just where they give you a fat piece of steak and a huge gob of mashed potatoes. - Rodfather
The fact they have opened Outback Steakhouses here in Australia should tell you all you need to know ;) - Johnny
Heh, totally reminds me of the random Taco Bell restaurants you see in Mexico. - Jennifer Dittrich
I'm a mustard-only person when it comes to sandwiches, though as a child, my favorite sandwich was peanut butter and butter. When it comes to steaks - I guess I'd have to ask what your definition of steak sauce is. Are you talking like a brown sauce or a BBQ sauce? Or do you mean something like bordelaise or au poivre? Because depending on the type of cuisine under which I'm ordering my... more... - Hookuh Tinypants
I tend to marinade my steaks so they don't usually call for any sauce after the fact. But I haven't heard of buttering the bread of a sandwich...might have to try that >.> - Chris Topher
I might also clarify, it's only a small amount of butter. More like a scraping than a thick layer ala mayo - Johnny
I'm beginning to be a fan of rub. I used this stuff on some filet mignon and it was awesome. http://store.tomdouglas.com/mushroo... - Rodfather
#random The closest I got to Miracle Whip in London was "salad cream," but it's not the same. I do love me some HP Sauce, though. - The First NoeLB from Android
My favourite steak sauces are chilli and lime, mushroom, blue cheese, sweet chilli, creamy pepper sauce and sometimes sweet caramelised onion. If I have a good piece of steak then I tend to go plain but a good balanced sauce in combination with the sides can bring up the whole plate. - Johnny
OK so you're talking proper sauces and not just bottled crap made by Heinz. :D This is why I love you. - Hookuh Tinypants
We have that too, but that's usually only used on the cheap cuts that end up on steak sangas or at BBQs on plastic plates :) - Johnny
I still love you. - Hookuh Tinypants
Caramelized onion? Oh, yes! - The First NoeLB from Android
I never heard of butter and mayo together on a sandwich until this one time in Canada. I got off the 401 at a small town somewhere between Toronto and Detroit, found a small sandwich shop, and ordered a ham and cheese sandwich. She took a slice of bread, spread something pale colored on it, then asked me if I wanted mayo. !!! I'm thinking, that wasn't mayo? So I said yes, and then she added mayo on top on what turned out to be butter. - bentley
(silently judges Joe for the ketchup thing) - Marie
I put a patty of butter on my steaks as I grill them. I like sauce on my steak too but then I'm sorta addicted to mashed potatoes and gravy so its more collateral. #gravyoneverythng Butter with mayo is just weird. Butter or mayo slathered on heavy and thick.... #okaymaybeitsjustme - WarLord
I need Melly in on this thread #Alone - Johnny
Butter on a sandwich brings back some middle school memories from when I lived with my mother. She would pack me lunches of salami & cheese sandwiches with butter instead of some other normal type of condiment on it, because she doesn't like mayo or mustard and refuses to buy any. - April Russo
No to either one for me. Why ruin a good steak with sauce of any kind? People in this part of the country (Southeastern Pennsylvania) often butter their bread for sandwiches if they are from a Pennsylvania Dutch background. - Friar Will
Butter on sandwiches is reserved for necessity (PB&J, needs it to help reduce the tacky starchness of the peanut butter and you can't do a proper Grilled Cheese without using butter to fry it), otherwise not really. Sauces, sometimes if the meat isn't great or wasn't already seasoned well, which could be with chili and lime or a good pepper baste. Caramelized onions don't count as a sauce. - NOT THE CRICKET
Cubano sandwiches need butter on them. - Steven Perez
Growing up, the only sandwiches I had with butter were tuna fish with diced pickles. Random, I know. I used A1 on steaks until I learned that it's a waste of a good piece of steak to sully it with steak sauce. I've had a few proper sauces on steak that were pretty good. The norm at steak houses in the US is to get a "plain" steak (marinated and seasoned) and have a few bottles of steak... more... - Jenny H. from Android
"Bread with stuff on it" is still one of the best phrases ever. :D Also - an excellent use for A1 sauce? Tater tots. Yes, I'm a heathen but I'm totally down with it. (C'mon, I'm the person who once stored their russet potatoes in the ice chest while camping; I've earned the right to be a potato heathen!) - Hookuh Tinypants
Depends on the quality of the steak. A good quality well cooked steak needs sauce like Dolly Parton needs stocking stuffers. - Todd Hoff

Maria the realtor knocked on my door. I'd been expecting someone to bring me the eviction notice and have been gearing up for a legal fight. Instead she brought the new owner with a deal.
He said he wants to move into our unit. He said we can be here through January and he won't charge me rent. - Starmama
Maria said Tito won't be asking for any back rent from me either. I asked for everything in writing and she said she'll get a letter from Tito, and the new owner said he'll write me a letter, Maria said she'll get both to me ASAP. - Starmama
They knew they were WRONG. - Starmama
Maria came to her senses, realized I'm not the one to fuck with, and decided she didn't want none. - Starmama
That's good they decided to behave like adults. - Anika
and yesterday I got an extension from the housing authority, so we have until March to find a place without worrying about losing our subsidy. - Starmama
(and damn I hope I find a place in weeks, not months) - Starmama
I'm going to tell them I need more time. can't hurt to ask, right? - Starmama
So very glad. - MoTO: #TeamMarina

Just realized in the song "I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus", it's the dad dressed as Santa and the mom is NOT committing adultery w/ Santa
For as smart as you are, damn Glassmeyer, you can be slow sometimes. - sglassme
You are the second person I've heard say that they didn't get this nuance of the song this year. It must be a year for revelations. - Katy S
Actually though, why didn't Mommy cosplay as Mrs Claus? - Andrew C (✔)
'Cos Mrs Claus isn't bearded, so the kids would recognize her and the game would be over. - RepoRat
Are you saying that Santa doesn't really exist? Maybe it really was Santa! Did you think of that? - Joe
Well, he's running around on Mrs Claus, then. - RepoRat
And, Santa would also be committing adultery. - Joe
Wait, really? - Eric - ill subliminal from iPhone
Santa's not committing adultery in this case because he's in a different area code, right? - Brian Johns
Really? *mind blown*... *throws slash fiction in the bin* - Johnny

Friday night a lady friend crashed at my apartment after a night of shenanigans. Next morning we woke up hurtin and making fun of ourselves. We both had terrible stuffed sinuses, probably too many cigs and the dry heat. She says 'I must be allergic to something. I think it's your cat.' And we howled with laughter.
I don't have a cat. Not sure why it was so funny, but it was. We laughed for a long time about it. I love finding someone with compatible humor. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
Also at one point I said 'man, we drank a lot of cigarettes... wait, sorry, that's not right.' She said, 'no, that sounds exactly right.' More waves of laughter. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android

LSW's The Librarians comment thread
He's the Doctor! EDIT: really, he's the Eighth Doctor as seen in The Night of the Doctor, right? - bentley
My refrigerator is the opposite of that. - Katy S
He's yelling in the library. I don't think he's supposed to yell in the library. - Katy S
I want that office. - bentley
Just one librarian? Seems they've heard about the job market. - Katy S
wonder if he's full time with benefits? - ellbeecee
He can't find a book? Librarian, heal thyself! - Katy S
he's killing librarians? totally almost what my NaNo plot started with if I'd tried this year. - ellbeecee
I really think he's channeling Paul McGann. - bentley
Does that room qualify as a maker station/space? - Katy S
They referenced my .sig file! "Be safe, don't get killed, save your receipts." - bentley
Talk about rolling compact stacks! - Katy S
There's the catalog you were looking for, Katy S. - bentley
So, for episode 2 we're injecting a bit of slapstick. - bentley
I missed a bit. I might have to catch this again later. - Katy S
They're two separate episodes, each for one hour. - bentley
So, I missed the end of one and the beginning of the other? Perfect. - Katy S
If I'm interpreting this correctly, they're basically making the librarians all men? Or will she still stick around? (Like I said, I missed a bit.) - Katy S
She's in the advertising graphics, so I assume she's staying. - bentley
Got it! - Katy S
#othersideoftheworld a) Is this a new series or something? b) Is it worth going to effort to acquire by means that shall not be specified? - Deborah Fitchett
a) Yes. b) as yet to be determined. - Katy S
They just started showing the two-parter again. - bentley
Thanks, I missed it earlier, but I'm recording now. - Greg GuitarBuster
Both parts will air again Friday at 8pm (EST) on the CW. #nocable - The First NoeLB from Android
Yay! - bentley
I kept thinking I had seen Cassandra (one of the new Librarians) in something and she kept reminding me of Amy Acker but I knew that wasn't it. And now I do know where I've seen her before -- she was Claudia, in Relic Hunter https://www.youtube.com/watch... -- but she doesn't remind me of Claudia at all. Weird. - bentley
Caught the first episode last night on DSTV (South Africa's cable network) .... fun. There is a FB page called The Librarians - apparently the first episode is free for download on itunes (guess in the US store only) - Ingrid Thomson
Not to be confused with the Australian series "The Librarians" http://www.imdb.com/title... - Ingrid Thomson
They weren't on iTunes when I looked yesterday but they're there now. First ep free, second ep $2.99. - bentley
Much better than the movies. But then, there's less Noah Wylie and more Rebecca Romijn. - DJF from Android
But it does feel like, "OK, Warehouse 13 had been cancelled, so let's revive this thing and capitalize on the existing market." - DJF from Android
I describe Warehouse 13 as Friday the Thirteenth The Series but without the curses. (I love both shows.) - bentley
Deborah, according to the podcast entry for an interview with one of the series' writers, they're going to be debuting worldwide via streaming this week: http://smartbitchestrashybooks.com/podcast... - Katie
well, it says the show is debuting worldwide "within days", but it doesn't say anything about streaming. In the states, you have to be a cable subscriber to log in to the TNT streaming site, and the Canadian station showing it, Space, isn't making it available for streaming. Not yet, at least. - DJF
@bently - that bugged the boyfriend too - so we looked it up and she was also the girlfriend on Kick Ass 2 - which is where he remembered her from. - WebGoddess
@Deborah: Tried to DM you some info that shall not be specified. :-) - bentley
Also, the Asian guy with the Australian accent needs to actually talk more. - DJF from Android
So is John Laroquette a real part of this series or just trivial window-dressing? (Trying to decide whether to watch it Friday on The CW.) - Walt Crawford
John Laroquette will be playing the role of Giles from Buffy The Vampire Slayer. - ♫Maurice the Trainer♫
He doesn't appear at all until the second hour of the pilot - DJF from Android
p.s. the episodes on itunes (not sure about amazon) will all be extended versions with additional footage. - holly #ravingfangirl
Finally getting to watch! - The First NoeLB from Android
So: we watched both hours on The CW. Enjoyed it quite a bit. But it's not clear when/whether the rest of the series will air on The CW...and no, we're not going to double our cable bill so we get TNT. At worst, I suppose, we wait for DVDs to come out. (Streaming's not an option: our "broad"band isn't broad enough.) - Walt Crawford
And speaking of Buffy...or, rather, Angel...it took us about a minute to place the art-historian new librarian as an evil lawyer at Wolfram & Hart. So this time he's trying to fight *against* evil magic. Nice change of pace. - Walt Crawford

Gotta say SFO's new Terminal 2 (American, Virgin America) might be best terminal in US now after the upgrades rest of the airport still blows. :) Lots of space, lots of light, lots of good unique food.
is it unique good food? or just good unique? - Sir Shuping is just sir
I love that terminal. Also, Virgin is the best airline! - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
The Virgin international terminal at JFK has two Shake Shacks. It's insane. - Meg VMeg
I'll be there tomorrow morning! - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Here I am. Napa Farms Market. I want to eat all the things. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Funny story. I was so engrossed in Soda Crush Saga I didn't notice my driver was taking me to San Jose airport. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Oh god, I was annoyed by the food in the American terminal at SFO. Sometimes a person just wants something basic. Took way too much energy and effort to find basic food that wouldn't cost me an arm and a leg. I was much happier with the other end of the flight - the American terminal at O'Hare. Now that place is awesome. :D - Hookuh Tinypants
Next time I want to try Cat Cora's Kitchen - forgot that was there. - Laura Norvig
Hmm Hookuh I am like you in searching for basic I can't eat most fancy food and don't like the rest but I had ample choices when looking around and the tacos at Andeleje (sp?) ended up being perfect under ten bucks for a meal and best tacos i've had in a while. But it's very subjective I know. :) - Steve C Team Marina

What is my daughter is causing some sort of ruckus on the street and some cop want s to arrest her and she says bug off. Does that give them the clearance to use excessive force? should she be taken down? What if her asthma kicks in? Or a seizure? What might they feel they could do to her? And would they automatically feel supported by by the system? - Tina Chase Gillmor

I have had police put guns at me cause I was in the wrong place at the wrong. Plus during the last london riots I was almost thumped by the police in the streets once I came out of an Apple Store. Too heavy handed - Moe Glitz from iPhone
@Steve, I though I had a lot of unread emails! - Adam Levy

YoCops - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Why isn't Pip on your home screen ? - Adam Levy
Keith is right, this shouldn't be about assigning culpability after the event. This should about these events not happening. Unfortunately the wide availability of guns just raises the perception of threat on both sides. - Simon Benvenutto
The police never like to be challenged - Moe Glitz from iPhone

Thanks for always being there, FF. To repay your kindness, I actually took photos of fun baking experiments! With a real camera! Apple roses, so pretty but easy to make, and they taste just like tiny bite-size apple pies.

You know you’re a grown-up when your Christmas wish is a new vacuum cleaner.
That sucks. - bentley
Dyson or Shark? - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Roomba! - Steven Perez
I am so in the market. I want a Roomba AND a Dyson. Is a Dyson really that great, though? Would love other opinions. I have a lot of carpet in my new house. - Laura Norvig
I have a Miele that I love. LOVE! Her name is Mona. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
^We absolutely love our Miele too. - AHnix (Anna Haro)
So Laura we have a Dyson it works just fine but is no better then any of our previous vacuums. Consumer Reports rates bagged vacuums in this order: Kenmore Elite, Miele Twist, Miele Cat/Dog, Kenmore 31140, Kenmore Progressive, Hoover WindTunnel (with the last three being best buys and the first three being great but expensive). For bagless it is: Hoover Windtunnel T Series, Eureka Airspeed, Eureka airspeed Gold, Dyson Animal, Shark Rotator (with the first two marked as best buys). - Steve C Team Marina
For Roombas I'm eyeing one but they now have approximately half a billion models out. The best reviewed one is Roomba 880 for Pets it is a change in brushes from all the other models so it doesn't get jammed up but is too expensive right now. Ten more model releases and its price will drop. And as the cleaner in the house I know too much and apologize for hijacking Jandy's post. :) - Steve C Team Marina
My god a Roomba would change my life lol - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I owned a Roomba several years ago and found it wasn't as much a timesaver as I thought because the brush gets filled with hair VERY quickly, requiring you to take it out and cut or pull the hair off of it. Probably not a problem for people with crewcuts but it got old quickly for me. - Spidra Webster
Steve, does that Consumer Reports have ratings for handheld ones? I really need something like a Dustbuster. - Spidra Webster
Oh hey it does in another article. Hand held are in this order: Shark Pet Perfect, Eureka Easy Clean, Bissell Pet Hair Eraser, Dirt Devil classic. Stick vacuums: Dyson Animal, Dyson motorhead, Shark Rocket, Hoover Platinum, Shark Navigator, Dirt Devil Accucharge, Bissell Featherweight. - Steve C Team Marina
If you want a cheaper Roomba, they always have refurbs showing up on Woot. - Eric - ill subliminal
Thanks, Steve! - Spidra Webster
You have no idea how excited I got over our new vacuum. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Also I had a Hoover Wind tunnel and it sucked. It died after a month. Never again. I have to say I have really loved my dirt devil. I wanna try a Miele next. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
My dad has sent me the Consumer Reports info as well, but I haven't taken time to look it over. Thanks for the personal reactions to your vacuums, guys. :) - Jandy
We still have a Riccar that works well. The repairman liked these and uses something similar himself. He said there's Panasonic branded ones that are basically the same inside. Looking at the bag, there are several brands that use the same upright. http://www.amazon.com/Panason.... Actually wrong bag but you get the point. We... more... - Rodfather from Android
I'm quite happy with our Eureka Airspeed--not too heavy and does a fine job with cat hair (and has good suction on tools). - Walt Crawford
I have a Dyson, and it's pretty great. We looked at the Kenmore bagless at the same time; even though they were a lot cheaper to buy, there was a lot of maintenance cost down-the-line that you don't have with the Dyson (all of the filters in the Dyson are permanent; the ones in the Kenmore are supposed to be replaced regularly, etc.). The Dyson is a lot of money (though there are some pretty great sales on them this time of year), but I honestly believe it was worth it. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
There was a Dyson on sale when I went to Costco. I didn't want to impulse buy, but now I kinda wish I had gotten it. I still love the idea of a Roomba, though. I feel like it could almost be like a family pet ... - Laura Norvig

Nice! I bet they appreciate that. - Stephan from iPhone

FriendFeed Bookmarklet Hosting: Micah W.'s ffbookmarklet v1.03 "Woot Tube" Release -- draggable version - http://www.zeigen.com/ff/
FriendFeed Bookmarklet Hosting: Micah W.'s ffbookmarklet v1.03 "Woot Tube" Release --  draggable version
Having trouble with the FF Bookmarklet in Chrome or other browsers? This is an updated version thanks to Micah and sizofroid. To make it easier to install, I'm now hosting it at my site, so you don't have to jump through hoops, you can just drag the updated version to your bookmark bar. - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
Yay! [update: uh, I don't see the actual bookmarklet on that page] - lris
Hmm, what browser are you using, Iris? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Chrome, Mac. Here's what I see http://screencast.com/t... - lris
Well that's weird. Chrome on Windows is working for me. When you go to the FF tools page, is the button there visible for you? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Yes it is - lris
Iris, have you disabled JavaScript by chance? I had a coworker test with Chrome on his Mac and it was working for him. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
No. And I did have adblocker running but I disabled it for that site. - lris
I love you. - Melly Claus
I love you too, Melly! - Stephen Mack
Iris, hold on, gonna try something to fix it. - Stephen Mack
I'm running Chrome on Windows if that helps, FYI. - Melly Claus
Iris, I changed how the image for the button was hosted. Did that fix it for you? - Stephen Mack
Yay! I see it! - lris
Yay! Hmm, you must have some pretty high levels of security set. All I changed was copying the image for the button from FF's server to mine. - Stephen Mack
I am not aware of extra high levels of security. Maybe I'm accidentally extremely careful. :) - lris
I'm sure it's no accident. :) - Stephen Mack
Hopefully no one else is having any trouble? - Stephen Mack
I added the older versions at the bottom, just in case there are any compatibility issues. - Stephen Mack
When I saw "draggable" I first thought it meant the popup can be dragged around within the page, to make it easier to select images that it would ordinarily be covering up...like this old one: http://pastebin.ca/1323845 I am still using that one, but installed as a dedicated CustomButton. If you have the Firefox add-on installed, it's easy to install the button from here: http://appsapps.info/ff... What I would like to have is a combo of all the goodies into one awesome button. - April Russo
April, that's a cool idea. I couldn't get the one you linked to work for me, though. I wonder if we can beg Micah to add that functionality into his version. - Stephen Mack
I just did. ;) - April Russo
Ah! I don't know about CustomButton, though. What is taht? - Stephen Mack
Which one could you not get to work? The 1st or 2nd link? The 1st is instructions for modifying the official bookmarklet to use the drag & drop popup. The 2nd link requires the CustomButtons add-on installed in Firefox. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US... You'd just click the link on my page to install the button, then right click a Firefox toolbar, go to... more... - April Russo
2nd link. But I see what you mean, it requires the add-on. Does it work on Chrome or IE, or just Firefox? - Stephen Mack
Compatibility: Mozilla Firefox 1.5+ SeaMonkey 2.0+ Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0+ Mozilla Sunbird 0.8-0.9 / Calendar 1.0pre KompoZer 0.8b1-0.8b3 Flock 0.7-1.5+ and Pale Moon (which is what I am using) - April Russo
Bump due to recent discussion. Micah, it'd be great to incorporate that feature from April's. Heard that at least one user is having trouble with the new bookmarklet. How's it working for others? (Works great for me! My default browser is Chrome.) - Stephen Mack
Working with Chrome, I'd say it works about 95% of the time really well. There are a couple sites where it just doesn't want to pull in the images, and sometimes the NY Times is tweaky, but both seem related to recent layout changes. - Jennifer Dittrich
Mine still doesn't work. I wonder if one of my plugins is breaking it. I've taken to browsing in Chrome and copying the URL over to IE when I want to post something to FF. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
It doesn't work for me: in Firefox (my default browser) it just brings up an empty box. As DB said, it might be a conflict with an extension, but I'm not sure which would be causing it. - John (bird whisperer)
First off, thank you for this work. I'll test it out in a bit. I have a lot of browsers to test in, and I use XMARKS so it should just pop to all my different browsers. - Eric - ill subliminal

Golden View Popup Link Keeper —my NEW Chrome app - http://goldenviewapps.com
GVA-header.png
WHAT IT'S NOT: Just a current page bookmark app. WHAT IT DOES DO is add a gold star UI to save in-page links intelligently to Pocket (http://getpocket.com, formerly Read It Later). - Micah
SMARTER SAVING: 1) Links are of course saved, but the post title / tweet content / search result text are also saved. 2) @twitter handle, display name on Friendfeed, and name on Google+ are saved as tags along with the link. - Micah
WHICH SITES DOES IT WORK ON? Twitter, Google+, Friendfeed and Google Search are all currently supported. More to come. Each can be enabled/disabled in the option settings. - Micah
Letting my friendfeeders know first. - Micah
All my Chrome users out there, if you could check it out for me that would be tastic! - Micah
*BUMP* for morning crew. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Hey Micah, can you explain the purpose of this again? Is it mostly a large-scale link saver (so I can grab external links from feeds and put them in one place)? It's not intended as a self-archiving tool (for non-linked content within feeds) is it? - Meg VMeg
Meg, I'll answer more thoroughly later today, but basically, you can save a post/tweet/Google search result -- the URL mainly, but the username and title are saved too. And you get a hovercard style Popup of your recent links. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Meg, here are some more screenshots: http://wittman.org/golden-... —more questions welcome. :) - Micah
Thanks! - Meg VMeg
Ok, I just made this screencast http://friendfeed.com/micahwi... demo tonight—let me know how well it helps explain GVPLK. Thanks! - Micah
Thx Micah! - sofarsoShawn
Welcome Shawn, thanks! - Micah
AJ, are you a hard core delicious user? I'll take a look at their API, thx. - Micah
I still use them from time to time. Not hardcore anymore. - AJ Batac
What's springpad's niche? - Micah
Installed and watching the video. So ... the idea is that it will save links from Twitter, G+, and search *to* Pocket? - Laura Norvig
hmm, my saves do not show the plus user (or even post title) when I go back to Pocket. Ahh, maybe because I am bookmarking it from a circle I created that only has myself in it (my own gplus "stuff to save" circle). Yep, that was it. Oooh, I am loving Pocket already ... - Laura Norvig
Love the play-by-play -- thanks for the feedback, Laura. :) - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Any thoughts or requests from anyone? I'm working on making the new Pocket account signup possible right from the GVPLK options page—but if there's something more pressing would love to hear about it. THX - Micah
Is there any firefox addon for the same purprose? Thanks - Erwin Schrödinger
Sorry, Erwin, this extension happens to be Chrome only. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
