New York City's First Rooftop Hydroponic Farm To Yield 30 Tons Of Produce Annually : TreeHugger
"Winners of the grand prize at New York's Green Business Competition, they plan to start construction of the 12,000 square-foot greenhouse this fall and yield their first harvest early next year. The project, with an estimated cost of $1.4 million, will be powered by 2,000 square-feet of solar panels and will capture rainwater for irrigation. In fact, the project's energy-savings potential even garnished them a $400,000 grant from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority. "We are trying to demonstrate that sustainable, urban agriculture can be economically viable in the city," said the company's greenhouse director, Jennifer Nelkin, 30." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Last friday I taped an iPhone to my head and ran around Paris capturing the most famous sights in a single (somewhat shaky) shot. Here's the video: http://vimeo.com/12906858
Screen shot 2010-06-28 at 6.40.07 PM.png
*spot reserved for a later comment* - Micah from iPhone
Now we know what that 94 minute video was. :) - NOT THE CRICKET
that explain other FF posts, looking for tapes and where can one upload large video files ;-). - Tzury Bar Yochay
Yeah, I never did get the duct tape though, so I had to use clear packaging tape instead (with a sock stuffed between the iPhone and my hat to get the correctish angle). - Paul Buchheit
Patent it NOW - Josh Haley
Well, this is just genius! - Eric - No Gimmicks
When you said you ran you weren't speaking metaphorically. - Eric - No Gimmicks
Very Cool Paul! - Jeff P. Henderson
great and inspiring - Nenko Ivanov
this was perfect, I opened up my Paris map and followed you :) - İpek Aral
I'm surprised you were able to follow. I didn't have a map (my iPhone was taped to my head!) so I made a number of wrong turns, though the high-level route was pretty basic. - Paul Buchheit
Saw the vimeo on your stream and watched a little of it. Great stuff! Cool to see new iphone vid quality. (er 3gs? quality, hmm) Oh yeah, and enjoy Paris! - Jay
It's actually a 3GS, not an iphone 4. - Paul Buchheit
I think I might tape a photo of Paul with an iPhone taped to his head to my head because I want to get arrested for being a menace. - Akiva
You can fit an iPad on my forehead. - Josh Haley
Ahhh this explains the "ducktape in Paris" stuff LOL :D (that picture is full of geeky win!) - Susan Beebe
@Paul just curious how much battery did you have left after you were done recording? - BRҰANSAҰS
Something like 22%, as I recall. I had put the phone in airplane mode to reduce wireless consumption and also because I'm concerned that an incoming call would stop the video or something. - Paul Buchheit
Not bad. I guess you could get at least 2 hours of recording on one charge. - BRҰANSAҰS from BuddyFeed
Nice idea, OP - LANjackal
this is definitely on the list of 'quirkiest things ever done with an iPhone'. :-) - Olivia Lovag
this is so romantic - τorƍue
awesome, you just needed a gun and it would make a cool REAL-time FPS :) - Emil Kirichev
oh thanks you soo much!!! I love it! - Bojan Babic
surprisingly un-shaky - Sally Relton Shakespeare
Avg. speed: 9.48 km/h (9.23 mi in 94 min, see red track http://maps.google.com/maps...) - Jérôme
Paul had the initial idea for Google Glass exactly two years before Google launched Glass. :) - Space Cowboy
Now, if only he had thought of Gmail. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I hope this isn't the start of a "people walk around cities w/smartphones taped to their hats" trend. - rønin
I hope it is - Mo Kargas
If so, it'll just be transitional until smartphones are replaced by glasses-phones. Or smart glasses. Do we have an official name for those yet? - Andrew C (✔)
Iphone taped to the forehead, what a nice way to show #IamAmerican abroad :) - A. T.
first laugh of the day, ty a.t. - chaz2b

LOL, Google Glass back in the days. Monsieur: Martini? Great stuff as I was doing myself a lot of these then too... 9) - Zu from AOD

Gah sideways - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Maybe not a great sign that you're already horizontal, but best of luck to you guys! - Eivind
5k done, 95k to go! Louis is a fast walker. Why are we so crazy? My right foot is a little sore. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Good luck, guys! - Jenny H. from Android
Good luck! :D - Jennifer Dittrich
Thank you! Dodging bicycles on the Steven's Creek Trail. 8k steps down in 75 mins. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
11k done. Louis is on his second Diet Coke. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
wait, how come he can drink a soda but you can't drink your coffee? nonsense! - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
He's more talented at drinking on the move than I am :( - Stephen Mack from iPhone
18k steps! Starting to feel it. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
20k steps before 9am! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Ken is with us now, yay! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
You need a straw - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
I do. 25k done! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Louis. Have a little mercy. Stephen, he is not the boss of you ... srsly, be careful guys. Have fun. - Laura Norvig
Thanks, Laura! 30k achieved. Louis is nearly 2k ahead of me because he doesn't stop moving when I tie my shoe or stop to pee. He. Is. A. Robot. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
He'll take you round the universe and all the other places too, Stephen! - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
I think you're right, Hig. He's taking me 36k so far -- we're past the one third milestone. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Are you popping ibuprofen to prevent foot swelling/pain? - Meg VMeg
Meg, about to start. I have some blister goo on now thanks to Slacy. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Please consider a donation! https://www.firstgiving.com/fundrai... - Stephen Mack from iPhone
45k now! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
52.5k now. Louis is 56k. Stride difference or device difference? Also he keeps walking when I stop to pee. Grr! The difference is a problem. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Ken G. did 30k or more with us. Great job and thank you, Ken! Edit: 35k - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Don't take any ibuprofen! Rule of thumb when you're doing an endurance event (even walking or hiking). You don't take painkillers of any kind because they can cause kidney and/or liver damage (it screws with your hydration and sodium levels). You have to wait until you've had your first good pee after you've completed your endurance event before you should take a painkiller of any kind. - Hookuh Tinypants
Oops. Good advice. Too late. :( - Stephen Mack from iPhone
26.9 miles walked, 58.4k steps. A marathon walked in 10 hours. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
63k but Louis is somehow at 69,800. I can understand him being 2k or 3k ahead but he picked up 1,000 steps on me in the last 20 min while walking the same trail. Something ain't right. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Hmm. We did a test. He's currently getting 100 steps while I got 75 -- but we were walking side by side and matching strides. So I'm going to use his count. :) - Stephen Mack from iPhone
We're therefore nearing 75k. :) - Stephen Mack from iPhone
:-) - bentley
GO! GO! GOOOOOOOO!!! *shakes pom-poms* - Half Pint
Thanks, Vicster! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
4 hours to go. Dark again. Why did we do this on the second shortest day of the year. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
We just saw a fox. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I have a sneaking suspicion even Louis will sleep well when you're finished. - Eric Logan from iPhone
Stephen, what did the fox say? - bentley
Way to go, Stephen! I walked 200 steps today on one leg, exhausted. :) - Stephan from iPhone
80k! Just told a dirty joke. Louis didn't laugh. #robot - Stephen Mack from iPhone
You two are awesome! - joey
Thanks, Joey! (You're awesome too.) - Stephen Mack from iPhone
17k to go. Ankle really hurts on left. Roger is here! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I totally forgot to mention here that my sister walked four hours with us. She rocks. - Stephen Mack from iPhone

Congratulations, Stephen! - Stephan
Well done, guys! I hope you both are resting comfortably. - Corinne L
Thanks all! In the tub. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Thanks for being my amazing partner and for this thread, Stephen! - Louis Gray
This thread is epic! 1) Yes, I am a robot. 2) Yes, I bossed Stephen. 3) Yes, I laughed at his joke. 4) Yes, there was a Fitbit count issue, but I made 100k! 5) I am way sore and not sleeping... BECAUSE you know why. - Louis Gray
Woo-hoo!!!! Congratulations! - bentley
Let us know how your feet feel when you wake up. ;) - April Russo
Stiff, sore, slow. I am old. - Louis Gray
April: I slept in to 11. I think the technical term for how they feel is "not good." - Stephen Mack from iPhone
It's too late to advise you guys to ice your legs, but I recommend a hot bath with Epsom salts. Soak for at least 15 minutes. Make sure you get up and move frequently throughout the day. Doesn't need to be fast or long, just enough to keep your muscles from tightening back up. Do some stretches, both static and dynamic. And hydrate like your life depends on it. Also, pull up your Fitbit dashboard or app periodically and stare at your numbers for yesterday. Revel in that. :) - Hookuh Tinypants
Excellent advice, Hookuh! I did ice a bit before bath last night, and am doing some more ice today. Epsom salt bath soon. Good idea on the stretches. - Stephen Mack
I've found some short walks to be helpful for me today, along with the stretching. Not so sore that I need ice or espom salt baths today. Definitely had reached my limit yesterday and happy to have stopped then. Don't envy Louis & you today. - Ken Gidley
If by "short walks" I can qualify with "hobbling to and from the kitchen" then I can say I took several short walks today. Fitbit tells me I've taken 270 steps so far today. That's a litttttle bit different from yesterday. (BTW, when I got home last night and realized I needed to take the trash bins down, I was so mad.) - Stephen Mack
That's how I would have felt after about 7K, and it would take me days to recover. I try to stay between 3K and 5K on most days. - April Russo
Just remember - it's not the day after that kills you. It gets worse on the second day after. *runs away* - Hookuh Tinypants
Tinypants!!! (Shakes fist) - Louis Gray
I did more than 9,000 steps today, because I had to do Christmas shopping still, and take kids places. But I've not been dramatically exerting. Over time, the stiffness will subside. - Louis Gray
Just consider it a reminder of your awesomeness. :) - Hookuh Tinypants

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." - rønin 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.”" - rønin
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. - rønin

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
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. - Laruia Ingalls Botts 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! - Laruia Ingalls Botts 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 Boychick Devil

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 - No Gimmicks from iPhone
Santa's not committing adultery in this case because he's in a different area code, right? - Brian Johns

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

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 - Laruia Ingalls Botts 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! - Laruia Ingalls Botts 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)!

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
