As an aging librarian with a domain name purchasing addiction, I'm really worried I am becoming a certain someone.

It makes sense if you read the first post: - Zamms
I must admit that I've never seen The Z and The \M! in the same room together, so can't prove that they're not the same person. - Walt Crawford
Zamms if you're going to more like him, you need to use more slashes, question marks and different colors. - Sir Shuping is just sir
Walt: Actually, I haven't seen me and him in the same room together either, so you might be right! - Zamms
Andrew: Y(_) 0 /\/\@ke @ 600d p0!nt. (Imagine that this font is fuchsia.) - Zamms
So we're following Zamms into the fuchsia? - Walt Crawford
Is that a euphemism? I don't want any Hale-Bopp cult situations here... (Also is available. FOR NOW. But I don't want it.) - Zamms
It was a weak attempt at a verbal pun. Never mind. - Walt Crawford
AH GOT IT! - Zamms
do you have a recommendation for where to buy a domain name? - Marie
Personally, I've been happy with 1and1. - Walt Crawford
Thanks, Walt. - Marie

Dear FF, I kicked off my birthday weekend with sautéed Swiss chard, sweet potato fries with aioli, and a motherfucking local grassfed NY strip steak.
And wine. - laura x from iPhone
I'd eat that. - SAM
Everything is right with this. - Julian

We're going to need more birthday weekend food updates. For science. - Corinne L
This morning a friend took us out for apple cider doughnuts at the market. Lunch was the tail end of the steak with carmelized onions and a green salad with creamy garlic dressing. Dinner is going to be broccoli and pasta with walnut sauce. - laura x

SAGE email asked me to take a survey about them, so I let them have it in the comment sections regarding GSU lawsuit and open access FUD. Such fun for such an otherwise crummy day.

every time i see Yemen mentioned anywhere, all i can think of is "I'm going to Yemen!" a la Chandler. i am a terrible person.
15 Yemen Road, Yemen. - Kristin from iPhone
kristin gets me. - holly #ravingfangirl
and is also a terrible person. - holly #ravingfangirl
My husband had a friend who went to live in Yemen in the mid 1970's. She would write to him (at that time) how it was truly the armpit of the universe. - Janet
In all fairness, I had no idea what you were talking about at the time because I avoided the internet and news all day. That being said, yeah, I am probably still a terrible person. :P - Kristin

Turns out that when you work in the same city where you grew up (even if it's NYC), a student might show up at your library with his study group and recognize you from his year-long stint in your 3rd grade class. Where you built a Beanie Baby house together out of cardboard.
so will y'all be meeting for coffee to reminisce about the beanie baby house? - Sir Shuping is just sir
We talked about it right there in front of his group, who found it hilarious! Hey, whatever gets you to come back to visit the library, right? - Lily

One of the things I love the most about having an extensive network of friends on the computer is that from time to time I finally get to meet people in person after years of lively online interaction. Last night, I met up with up with John Dupuis. So what do two OA advocates do to cap off the night? Why, take selfies in front of Elsevier's NA...
NA? - Joe
Joe: I'm guessing what got cut off was Elsevier's North America offices. - bentley
Ah. - Joe
Thanks. I usually think not affiliated or not applicable, but these two didn't seem applicable in his instance. - Joe
Dang mobile browsers. Yes, meant to say NA (North American) offices. Until about three years ago, Library Journal had its offices in the same building. - Stephen Francoeur from Android

My very odd little streak is intact. I am now up to 6 straight cases where when I have provided a reference for a person, they have gotten the job. The streak has stretched over several years. Also, for it to count I have to actually give a phone or written reference.
Of course, I'm under no illusion that they got the various jobs *because* of my reference. They all got their jobs because they deserved them in and of themselves. But at the same time, this little streak pleases me very much. - John Dupuis

Public Viewing Rights & Good Faith Efforts: We are in the starting phase of policymaking around poublic viewing rights. Troublemaker that I am, I want to define "good faith effort" and set in policy that after the defined good faith effort we will generally advise: while the rights have not been acquired, you should be okay publicly showing...
at some point we have to draw a line and move - am I way out of line? Do you have examples of good policies I can draft from? thanks! - Aaron the Librarian
Can you explain a little more? Our university is covered, at least mostly, I think, but a license that the office of student affairs handles - ~Courtney F
Yeah, I don't understand. Do you mean that they'd be showing (potentially/obviously) orphan works? Or that the rightsholders of clearly copyrighted movies mightn't get back to them in a timely way? - Meg VMeg
^^^ yes this - lris from Android
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. We use several vendors to do public viewing rights (I can find out which if you like) but occasionally (anectotally 3-5 (out of ~50) in last 5 years) we cannot acquire rights through "the usual... more... - Aaron the Librarian

I am inordinately proud of my tire changing abilities. Also, I got to use my lug wrench. I love my lug wrench. - laura x
I tend to be very proud of mine too. And it's also kind of fun to say to the men who pull up offering to help "nah, I'm ok". My brother and I used to time each other changing tires. This doesn't mean I always do it because sometimes I just don't want to. But I know I can. :) - ellbeecee
As a typical macho man, here's how I dealt with a flat tire a few weeks ago (fortunately, in the garage at the time: unrepairably flat): I got to use my AAA card, which I almost never do. Person came in a truck with a good, safe jack (instead of the crappy little Honda jack), person changed the tire. - Walt Crawford
I have long coveted a decent jack, but I have not yet acquired one. I don't have AAA because I object to their politics, and I just let my Better World Club membership lapse because my warranty comes with roadside assistance for a few years. But in this case, it was much faster for me to do it than to wait around. Got it off, got the donut on, dropped off the tire with the nail in it at... more... - laura x
Good for you. My wife would object strenuously to my changing the tire myself (mostly because of the jack), and I guess CSAA's politics don't bother me. In our case, the nail--actually a really long wood screw--went through the tread and right into the sidewall, so a patch wasn't a possibility. Main impact (other than the cost of a new tire) was that it was a Wednesday and I had to skip the weekly hike. - Walt Crawford
Sometimes I forget that Germans don't get my sense if humor.

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 - 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 #anticaper
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 #anticaper
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 this old one: 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: 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. 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

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. ;)
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 -
