Megan loves summer
Further to the EBL / Ebrary books-missing-bits thread: here is a screenshot of an EBL book from Duke UP that was in our PDA catalogue (now removed so that it's not accidentally purchased). It says that Duke doesn't hold electronic rights to the material, but apparently EBL sees fit to sell it anyway.
I am gobsmacked. - barbara fister
I wonder if this is a gross mishandling of international copyright? - lris
Isn't this one of the same titles that was mentioned in the other thread? EDIT: oh wait, it was Megan who mentioned it, in exactly this situation. Nothing to see here, please move along... - Catherine Pellegrino
Yeah, sorry, just made a new thread for the screenshot - Megan loves summer

Mr. 12 looks toothless in this picture, or tooth-deficient anyway. Not my favorite picture of him for sure! Mr. 71 looks pretty happy. - Mama Lawson
I always smiled with my mouth closed as a kid. I wasn't aware one was supposed to show that one had teeth. - laura x from iPhone

My mom arranged for my father to take Mr. 12 to PAX Prime this year, the big videogame expo in Seattle. Mr. 12 left the house a few minutes ago and they fly out of Denver this afternoon. I'm so excited for them! I hope it goes well.
I'm so glad it's your dad taking him, because I know you'll get some fabulous photos of Mr. 12 out of the deal. :) - Catherine Pellegrino
Yes, I just emailed my dad a request for a few photos of them together, since dad's usually behind the camera and not in front of it. - Steele Lawman
First snafu: Luke left his wallet at home. Luckily, dad has deep pockets. - Steele Lawman
Mis-delivery to my house confirms the name of my neighbor is what I thought it is.

What good is reality? I choose the blue pill. Don't stop spinning, l'il top. Memento's Leonard should have used erasable ink.
It's not that reality is any good. It's just what you're stuck with. #settling - Victor Ganata

"Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away." — PKD - Victor Ganata
I see your PKD and raise you with someone from the Rove/Cheney administration: "The aide said that guys like me were "in what we call the reality-based community," which he defined as people who "believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality." ...

ok. let's try to balance this initial dread and terror reaction with some helpful reminders, shall we?
I remain employed with full benefits through October 1st. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I have access to enough money to cover 2 month's salary. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I'm a long-time member of a professional association that has a job bank and gives me access to a wide network. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I needed to update my resume anyhow. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Good positioning. Now all energy to that new job! - Eric
The volunteer work and professional networking I started this year has exposed me to opportunities here in Athens I didn't know existed. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
every so often it's helpful to find out who your real friends are, and this will be one of those times. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I have an amazing support network of friends that have helped me through bad times in the past, so I have the moral support I'll need to make some tough decisions (provided I ask for it; that's on me). - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I have a Master's degree and a broad range of fairly marketable skills. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I paid off 2 credit cards so that chunk of cheddar can go elsewhere. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra

since I finally got my taxes filed, some money will come back from the Fed even after paying what I owe the state and the tax preparer. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I was on a roll for awhile keeping a reasonable expense budget, then I blew it with beering and dining, and now I can get back on it for better overall regardless. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I've wanted/needed to get my 401k and IRA and other random accounts I've accumulated over the years organized for awhile and kept putting it off (b/c ugh) but now would be a good time to get my money house in order in general. I asked the tax guy about it and got a recommendation, so I have someone to call to help me get started sooner rather than later. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
my therapist will help me through this and will likely run a tab for me if I'm unable to pay for awhile as she's done in the past. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra

Every now and then, my friend Jessy Randall makes me write a poem with her. And I enjoy it. And then she finds someone to publish it. We are published in the latest issue of "Industrial Lunch," sharing the cover with such luminaries as Jacques Lacan, Evelyn Waugh, and The Monkees....
The link to the online magazine is here, but I'll paste in the poem in the next comment: - Steele Lawman
WHEN I AM FLYING I like to drink Canadian whiskey. I used to drink it with Coke, but then I started to drink it with San Pellegrino, and I realized that it wasn't the Coke that I liked about the drink. But San Pellegrino is a bit expensive, so now I just get seltzer. So it's the whiskey and the sparkling water and maybe a little shpritz of lemon. Or motor oil. A little whiskey, some... more... - Steele Lawman

Tonight I am at another show. Another one of my favorite local bands, including epic musician twitter crush guy, and I am just going to enjoy myself and not drink too much or get morose. Last night got a little ugly towards the end.

I know they only offer so people have to use modems that become public wifi. Jokes on them. I LIVE IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE, SUCKAS. (2/2)

Hi. My name is Sarah Glassmeyer. I've been a law librarian for 9 years. I JUST NOW NOTICED that US Code titles are in alphabetical order.
Sarah G.
Can't wait for my parents' next visit when we can play the game of "which one of you gave me THIS fucked up gene."
Have you fulfilled your childhood dream of getting a syndrome named after you? - sglassme
Not yet...I think for Christmas this year everyone is getting a DNA test. I want to see what your guys' genomes look like. The new doctor is an interesting mix of hard core cutting edge medical technology and woo woo. In the middle of reviewing my genetic tests she recommended a lady in Hebron that does colonics. I was like, "I thought we stopped treating mental illness with enemas in the 19th century...." - Sarah G.
I think you would have to knock out Mr 45 before he would allow that. - sglassme
That can be arranged. I think I'll get him the butter knife set too. - Sarah G.

YOU GUYS. Big Research University Across The Street apparently now has guest wifi. This is (or may be) a total game-changer.
It has yet to be determined whether that guest wifi also confers access to licensed electronic resources, but I'm about to test that out. - Catherine Pellegrino
Let us know!!! - laura x
Can you connect to their guest wifi from within your library? That would be wonderful/evil. - Steele Lawman
Nah, we're way too far away. ("Across the street" is actually a mile+). But they've NEVER had guest wifi before, so this is HUGE. - Catherine Pellegrino
signal booster? - ♫Robot Chicken, Trainer♫
rogue mesh network! - RepoRat
excellent. - MariWeaver
Come on out to Denver. We have guest wifi. - Joe
We have guest wifi, too! With access to e-resources. - kaijsa
No guest wifi, no eresources....over here.... - aaron
We have guest wifi. Access to e-resources depends on which IP range we've given vendors, which depends on our license. - Deborah Fitchett
Heh. Dean of the Big Research Library Across The Street confirms that guest wifi does not confer access to licensed resources. If they want to use BRLATS's e-resources, our faculty and students are still limited to the two "guest" workstations with no printing or access to email. - Catherine Pellegrino
That's bogus. We count guest wifi users as walk-in users--they get the same privileges as anyone who walks in and uses one of our computers. Which means full access to all our e-resources. Or is this another of those public uni vs. private uni things that I just can't seem to wrap my head around? - Kirsten
I have no idea. My experience has been that large private research universities can get VERY growly about random walk-in users, and this is no exception. Where it really burns me, though, is that they're treating our faculty and students -- who have full borrowing privileges with their print collection, co-register in their classes, etc. -- the same as random walk-in users. - Catherine Pellegrino
Oy. Yeah, that's messy and confusing. And y'all are probably the ones who have to explain it to your students most, even though it isn't a policy you can do anything about. Frustrating. - Kirsten
Seconding what Kirsten says. If you're in university guest wifi range, you're a walk-in user. There are maybe a few things that don't work on guest network, but that's because they need individual accounts and only university emails work for those. - kaijsa
Oh, I just caught that this uni is private (reading comprehension, may I have some?). Yeah, that makes a big difference, I think. Still, if your students can register for their classes, seems like they should get to use the network when ON CAMPUS. Jeez. - kaijsa
No printing/email is even meaner than my private academic library is to walk-ins. - Steele Lawman
We are a tier or three below ND, but even as a private U, our guest wifi provides access to our resources, even for walkins. - Joe
