That is a great accomplishment! - Steve C Team Marina

this book contains 'unexpected Laura Crossett' ;-) - Marina's Godmother :-)

Reading about copyright law always makes me feel like a cranky toddler because I want things to be EASY and FUN and centered around MY DESIRES! But instead they are DUMB and COMPLICATED!
I just want to use what I want when I want it. JEEZ. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
^^ THIS - Steele Lawman
Copyright is like wedding cake. Yeah sure it could be simple but wouldn't it awesome to be put some flowers, ribbons, little figures, a couple of extra layers, some extra tiers, maybe a fruity filling oooo let's get some columns on there wedding guests love columns. - Andy
And let's make it six times as big as anyone will actually eat! - RepoRat
Eat cake. EAT CAKE!! - Steele Lawman
I find it perversely fascinating. A nifty and fairly simple 18th century idea that went Hollywood. Millions of dollars on spectacle, special effects, and vapidity. - barbara fister
Oh, and lobbyists and graft. Lobbyists v. Hobbyists: Return of the Wedding Cake from Hell. - barbara fister
I'm with Steve. - laura x

About the field of poppies: "It's beautiful!" - Melly - #TeamMarina
She's crying because it's finished and she wants to watch it again straight away and I said she has to have a nap first, hahaha. - Melly - #TeamMarina
I'm impressed she made it through her first viewing without freaking out about the Wicked Witch. I certainly didn't make it through. Go Emily! - Corinne L
She tried to rehash the plot and it came out all jumbled and awfully cute. About Dorothy and the girl in the bubble and dat wizard and de yion. - Melly - #TeamMarina from FFHound!
"yion" *dies of cuteness* - Spidra Webster
We're just about to finish viewing number 3! - Melly - #TeamMarina

True or false: today I spent 3 hours cutting butterflies out of tissue paper.
False. It was 4. - RepoRat
True, plus an hour of folding and gluing plus an hour of vodka time. - Steele Lawman
The hard part was that some of the butterflies ended up turning back into caterpillars... - Lily

Campus website has been up and down a lot in the last 24 hours. Here's a recent status update on Twitter from college ITS.

Totally stealing this. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
love it - maʀtha
Brilliant. - Catherine Pellegrino

Now I am thinking about getting a tablet...
NOT an iPad. - Julian
I've got an LG we picked up cheap when Uli got his new phone. Really like it. Admittedly, I mostly use it for games, reading, and social stuff; no clue how it would do for anything more complex. - Kirsten
we have a Kindle Fire HD. it was free. no real complaints. - Big Joe Silence
We continue to like our Kindle Fire HD 8.9, but now you'd want the HDX 8.9, which is apparently powerful enough to be a decent general-purpose tablet (and has phenomenal resolution). But it's still Amazon-tuned, running a customized Android, which may be an issue. - Walt Crawford
I wonder if I can still get a Nexus 7, now that the Nexus 9 has been announced. - Julian
I'm looking to replace my Nexus 7, Julian. I really liked it. - MoTO: Team Marina
My dad picked up a new Nexus 7 last week, to replace his 1st-gen Nexus 7. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
I love my Dell Venue 7. - Corinne L
This might actually happen today, thanks to Micro Center. I will update on this soon. - Julian
You can still get a Nexus 7 from Amazon http://www.amazon.com/s.... - Me
Also I suggest what Walt suggested as well, especially if you live in the Amazon world and have kids (There is a feature for kid time and such that is not standard on others.) I use my Fire HD for when watching tv and such along with some games. - Me
Just got an amazing steal on a Nexus 7 at my local Micro Center. I almost bought two. The second would have been the 2012 model, but they didn't have any (and I would have happily taken a refurb). - Julian from YouFeed
My wife is also on her 2nd Nexus 7. - Bruce Lewis
Just a suggestion, but I love this case for my nexus 7 http://www.amazon.com/JETech%... - Me
I'm liking my Surface 2 very much the current Surface is a 3 - WarLord
I did choose a case in the store. One can always change cases... - Julian
Me being me, of course I already have Ubuntu installed. - Julian

Every now and then I think I should update my LinkedIn profile. Then I lie down until the feeling passes.

I need a personal assistant who pays me for the privilege of being my personal assistant
Sign me up for that kind of assistant, too! - lris

Writing my sabbatical proposal is exhausting. I need a sabbatical just to be able to plan a good sabbatical.
Just remember that it's a subgenre of speculative fiction and try to enjoy it. - barbara fister
What's the old saying? It's easier to ask permission to do something on your sabbatical than it is to actually end up doing the thing you asked permission for. - John Dupuis
(He says, figuring he'll start on the stuff he's "supposed" to do after finishing up the presentation on the 28th...) - John Dupuis
The hardest part is coming up with a plan this far in advance, as my application is due this month for a sabbatical in 2016. But as people keep telling me, plans can change. My head thinks it looks like a good application, so I'm going to stop stressing. - kaijsa
Also, double lolz to barbara. Speculative fiction is pretty spot-on. - kaijsa
Catherine Pellegrino
Oh, Primo, you never cease to amuse me.

Primo knows best - lris
We need a "Damn You Auto-Suggest" tumblr. - Catherine Pellegrino
Oh yes. Oh yes we do. - laura x from iPhone
We do!! - Meg VMeg
We need a Primo Knows Best Tumblr, really. - Zamms from iPhone
I will do this tomorrow. - laura x from iPhone
I just demonstrated this to a class of senior music majors. They were amused. - Catherine Pellegrino
Always show how the resource doesn't work. That's my rule. - Zamms
omg - perfect use for tumblr - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
I still like the Ebsco autosuggest for cyber warfare to caber warfare - Christina Pikas
^^^ That is brilliant. - Catherine Pellegrino
Depending on how the vote has gone .... - barbara fister
I remember students posting some interesting ones for Encore.. I think one went "Singapore general elections" and it went "did you mean 'Singapore fairy tales' "..... Can't duplicate it anymore or find the screenshot. - aaron
I got "did you mean frocks" when I searched for frack*. submitted. also, why are there 2517 results for frack* and only 426 for "frack*" . #LeSigh - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Oooh! And I got "did you mean frage?" for the same search! WTH is "frage"? (edit: Oh, right, German.) - Catherine Pellegrino
Catherine Pellegrino
Smooth, Gale. Really smooth.

Why must you hate on U Name? I bet you're one of those Name College yahoos. - Pete : Team Marina
It is pronounced Nah may. - Joe

We got those too. - Marie

Last night I had drinks with a friend. Next week her boyfriend is staying with us. I think I agreed to talk him into starting therapy, stopping coloring his hair, and getting a vasectomy. But I will have two days.

Sage, last minute cruise advice from my dad: "Don't feel bad about getting two desserts with dinner. "
Even ordering two dinners! And eating the best bits from both. - Lnorigb from FFHound!

My son talks a lot about how his body wants to do one thing (i.e. misbehave) but his brain tells him to do something else (i.e. behave). I am thinking of this as my body takes me to a meeting room and my brain tells me not to go in.

Me in class today: "Remember that JSTOR only digitizes a limited number of journals in each discipline. For example, in the subject of history, there are only...over 5,000... Ok, that's actually a crapton, but..."
History is the bread and butter of JSTOR. :) - Holly's favorite Anna
For my journalism & PR students, i emphasize the STOR in JStor, telling them that it's not current - which is what they need. JStor has great name recognition, but it's the WRONG database for mai students, generally. *sigh* - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Coverage is great in lit, but our profs want lit students entering the *current* conversation in the crit, so they require sources to be <10 years old. I have to flat out tell them to keep their grubby mitts off JSTOR and go to to MLA first. - kaijsa

DEAR NYTIMES, SHE CALLED THE FUCKING *CDC* BEFORE GETTING ON THE PLANE (BECAUSE SHE'S A FUCKING *NURSE*) AND SHE WAS CLEARED TO FLY. SO CHECK YOUR STORY BEFORE MAKING IT SOUND LIKE SHE'S AN IDIOT. LOVE, MEG

One of the students I went through writing tutor training with about 5 years ago just wrote on my Facebook wall, "A good section of my 7th grade class the other day was spent explaining that librarians are cool. Expect disciples soon."

It's never a good sign when a guy with a pipe snake and heavy boots walks into the library.
nnnnnnnnnnnope. - RepoRat
Pipe Snake Dude left just a few minutes after he arrived, and zipped off in his little Maintenancemobile. Backwards. - Catherine Pellegrino

You know the hospital in Dallas, the one that's all over the news for how incompetently they've handled the ebola situation, and for how incompetently they've covered up their incompetence? A decade ago, they laid off my (extremely competent) dad, after 24 years of service (i.e., a few months before pension eligibility). Reaping/sowing/etc.
Fuck with the Smiths, get Ebola. - Steele Lawman
They will blame the nurse for her own ebola. Because nurses are idiots, amirite. - Meg VMeg
Also, she's a woman, so hysterical. - lris
YES. And she was monitoring her *own* damn temperature, even though (because!) they weren't, and she drove her *own* damn self to the ER. Typical, paranoid woman. - Meg VMeg

I received an email with the header "Calling for Origianl Papers" ... and the text for some wolves in Open Access clothing is in the same vein. Not surprised that the same academics who believe impact factor means anything would use the logic based on this sample of one to conclude Open Access is evil ...
Here is one of the sentences from the email... "One of the several other objectives of this consortium is to hone the research skills of the budding researches and to provide a platform for the academies unseasoned but promising scholars, Industry Personnel's and any individual who can offer innovative and novel ideas to the society for its betterment." - Kathryn is a free elf

Also, I got the No. 22 with sweet potato fries from here for lunch: http://nodoiowacity.com/menu/ - laura x
Should I call it sir? - Joe
I love the color - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
She's cute, and the car is nice, too. - Glen Campbell
Nice! - lris
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! - maʀtha

Most excellent! - Galadriel C. from Android
WHAT CAR? (also, cute Lawra is cute) - MoTO: Team Marina from Android
2014 Subaru Impreza, base model. (It has Bluetooth but no cruise control--wtf?) - laura x from iPhone
Suhweet! - Stephen Francoeur
Is it time to take it drifting and rally racing yet? :) - imabonehead
#toddlerx is disappointed that it is not black. In that case, however, I'd have to name it Mordred. - laura x
#toddlerx is apparently metal as fuck. (or totally goth) - DJF
I love my base impreza - 2008 model does have cruise control. - Christina Pikas from iPhone
Welcome to Club Impreza! I love mine (not only because I bought it online, and it was damaged coming off the truck so they upgraded me a Sport version available in the lot the day I showed up to get it!) - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
I always wanted an Impreza. I've test driven them. - Eric - It's My Thing
just about every car I've owned has been black. Malcolm and I are simpatico - MoTO: Team Marina

So I re-installed YikYak just in time to see students claiming they had sex in the library last night.
yay. also I bet they were lying. - RepoRat
Young adults lying about sex in an anonymous online forum? Surely you jest! - Steele Lawman
Huh, mine aren't bad at all. Though one is complaining about the wifi at Stephen's work? - Meg VMeg
Our study rooms have clear glass walls for related reasons. - kaijsa
Same for us, but some students have figured out that the moveable white boards do a good job of covering up those windows. - Joe
Ours get the boot if they cover the windows! - kaijsa
I was inspired to peek at ours again and found that somebody is doing a Gossip Squirrel thing. "Spotted: Squirrelrina Van Der Woodsen eating an apple core on a trash can. I heard she was dating Nut Archibald but he is nowhere to be found. -XOXO Gossip Squirrel." I approve. - kaijsa
Oh, that's quite good. Our students have a thing for squirrels, too. It's sex, food/bathroom, drinking/drugs, slandering the college president, complaining about campus technology, and squirrels, roughly in that order. - Steele Lawman
I am on the verge of installing it here... - laura x from iPhone
I don't have a device that would support it, but even if I did, there is not enough money in the WORLD to get me to see what ND students are posting. No. Way. - Catherine Pellegrino
Someone is spamming ours with Bible quotes and it's pissing everyone off. - Meg VMeg
I deleted my app again because I don't need to see all the "I'm so drunk in class" posts (ugh), but was happy to see a bunch of our students who post fond things about some of our local eccentrics. They seem to enjoy seeing people let their freak flags fly, which is nice. - kaijsa
My latest favorite: "I apologize to my neighbors for the dying whale sounds. I'm trying to get out of bed." - Julie Kane
(Most of ours are about Netflix and mainlining Gilmore Girls episodes when not slamming the wifi). Also, everybody seems to want a Cuddle Buddy. - Julie Kane
Why do classes start so early on Friday, food in Burge, complaints about other people having sex, Adderall, pro/con Asian students, I wish I had a boyfriend. It's actually sort of sweet. - laura x
Oh, why did I download Yik Yak... - Rachel Walden
Rachel, I hear ya. More like Yik Yuck a lot of the time: racism, sexism, ...and more! - Stephen Francoeur

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

ALERT ALERT my dad has discovered emojii in email. this is the greatest day of my life.
Old-man confusion (I'm the old man in this case, not your dad): Is "emojii" just the hip modern version of "emoticons" or is it something different? (Wikipedia seems to say it's different...) Not that it matters; I can as easily not use emojii as I don't use emoticons. - Walt Crawford
Emoticons : emoji :: ASCII text : tiny images. - RepoRat
Emoji is now in unicode. If you want to be cool & hip and stay ahead of your dad, try kaomoji ◕‿◕ - Amit Patel
