I'm thankful for our little niche on the Internet, and all you criminals who put up with me here. Thanks for keeping me on my toes.
❤️ - Marie from iPhone
Happy Thanksgiving, Steele. I'm thankful for your glorious hair - MoTO: #TeamMarina from Android

I'm thankful for you people and the LSW.

I'm watching Magic the Gathering judges do online reference. Q: "if my opponent has Glacial Chasm in play, my Shepeard of Rot doesnt do anything to them correct?" A: "The Chasm only works against damge. It does nothing about loss of life. So they'll still lose life due to the Shepherd's ability."
They are doing good work, but could benefit from a refresher on the reference interview. - Steele Lawman

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 - #TeamMarina
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 - #TeamMarina
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 - Regulate

Arrived at work to mystery umbrella on my desk. Is it a gift? A warning? Something more sinister? This is what happens when I'm out for a week. ;)
umbrella.jpg
It's for you to cover yourself when the s**t hits the fan? - Aaron the Librarian
Possible, Aaron. I got the real answer, though, and it's far less interesting. The business librarian & I have done a series of workshops this semester with the SBDC. The umbrella was a gift from the SBDC at the final workshop last week when I was out, and business librarian left mine n my desk for me. - ellbeecee
Nah. That's just its cover story. - lris
that's a pretty cool gift - maʀtha

I was staying in a motel once (during repairs to my house post-earthquake) and came back to my room one day to find an umbrella hanging from my door. A zebra-striped umbrella, zebras being my thing. But no-one who knew I was there ever owned up to it. So, slightly creepy, but I kept the umbrella anyway, because hey, zebra-striped. - Deborah Fitchett

a section of our fence blew down in the windstorm the other week. when the guy came to shore it up until it can be permanently fixed, i also asked him to adjust the gate because it hasn't been hanging right for a while. he said it's because the clematis is dragging it down and i need to cut it back. #sadtrombone - https://www.flickr.com/photos...

#toddlerx update: Ear tube insertion and adenoid removal went fine. He is a little woozy and pukey from the anesthesia, but now he's alseep on my lap and I'm rereading In the Beginning Was the Command Line.
Best wishes to you and #toddlerx. Hope he's through the worst of it. - Catherine Pellegrino

Laura's haircut photo reminded me that my friend at the coffee shop called me "Wolverine" this morning due to my "gorgeous" hair. I had to tell her that I'm having it cut tomorrow.

A sneak peak at our Libguides V2 with search modified for "bento style" (Summon API fuels catalogue, Articles and our suggestions boxes)
libguidesbento.png
Did you have to work with Springshare to alter the LibGuides search box functionality like that? - Stephen Francoeur
Nope. It's basically css/html you add to the search template "search page layout". The hard part was to manipulate the Summon API. Requires a server to host yr script (edited to avoid confusion "Server side") - my colleague used php. If you have questions, I can relay them to my colleague who did the work. I am sure he wouldnt mind sharing. We did ask Springshare about *their* API for... more... - aaron
When you say server-side, which server? and will it work through https? - Aaron the Librarian
As in you need to run an independent script on your own server. I think the scripts send your api key etc to the Summon server, get back results in json etc. Then parse back the results to appear on the Libguides Search page. I know he used and adapted this http://libx.lib.vt.edu/service... . - aaron
thanks for the clarification and the link *plots madly* - Aaron the Librarian
Wow. Thanks for this! I don't kno if we'll be able to do it here, but now it's a goal! - lris

I might try to make pancakes. How hard could it be? Famous last words.
find king aruthur flour mixes. they are awesome. and easy. - Sir Shuping is just sir
Pancakes are pretty easy to make. As long as you don't over mix them, they stay light and fluffy. Also, make sure your griddle/pan is hot. A drop of water should sizzle away and evaporate immediately. - Katy S
Ima go put my glasses on and give it a go. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
So hard. I think my pans are wrong for it? Good luck. - Meg VMeg
I always end up burning them. I hope you fare better. - John (bird whisperer)
Pan temperature is the hardest part. - Steele Lawman
I use this recipe. it's easy. http://southernfood.about.com/od... - ellbeecee
Since when does flour have an expiration date??? - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
I've not noticed. But anything with fats in it would have to have an expiration date. Fats go rancid with time and heat. - Spidra Webster
Which begs a follow-up question: Since when does flour have fats in it? (Baking mixes, possibly... ) - Walt Crawford
First round is an epic fail. Ima go have a cigarette and regroup. Sigh. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
I'm admitting defeat. Live to fight another day. Nobody say 'pancakes' to me for awhile. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
I usually fuck up 3-4 pancakes until I get the pan temperature right. :-/ - Jenny H. from Android
^^ yep, i always have to have a bunch of test pancakes before i get it right. - holly #ravingfangirl
it always takes me 1-2 pancakes to remember that I need the burner temp a LOT higher than I think I do. - ellbeecee
I can only counter with King Arthur's nutritional label, noting that their white flour also says 0, 0, 0 for fats: http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop-im... - Walt Crawford
So, apparently, some whole wheat flours are fattier than others? - Walt Crawford
Aha: King Arthur's response in this thread clarifies things (that, and that the first link uses a CUP OF FLOUR as a single serving, where KA uses what might actually be in a serving of something baked): All-purpose flour really doesn't expire, but whole-grain flour has just enough oil to eventually go rancid: http://community.kingarthurflour.com/content... - Walt Crawford
Yeah, making pancakes on the stovetop is notoriously difficult, due to the temperature of the pan. I tend to have the best luck with my electic griddle. Turning it all the way up is always perfect for pancakes; they never burn that way. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Yeah, whole wheat flours will go rancid, which is why many store it in the freezer. - Katy S
There's a skill in the flip timing too. Only flip when the middle has bubbled and the sides have firmed. I use a smallish cast iron pan where I make one at a time. - Janet from FFHound!

Have learned that other librarians are asking vendors "did Lisa H buy xyz info lit product?" as marker of quality/whether they will buy. Feels strange to me. Should I just see as compliment?
Yes - Steele Lawman from Android
yes, but I can see how it would feel strange - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
I guess what feels most strange to me is that no one is asking me WHY we bought it. Wouldn't you want to know if my reasons match your situation? And, what resources it is going to take me to use it in that way? - Lisa Hinchliffe
Interesting that they saying Lisa bought it not so and so big name institution bought it . Your "brand" is powerful. - aaron

Public Viewing Rights & Good Faith Efforts: We are in the starting phase of policymaking around poublic viewing rights.

I have no actual examples (and filing cabinet contents were aggressively deselected with prejudice) but basically we're trying to document our formerly black-box public viewing rights policy.
