chaz, go sit in the corner and think about what you've done. - LB's Bubba. The other 1
Ah, bliss. Helvetica and Helvetica Neue are installed by default for me. [stares blissfully into a blissfully blissful blue sky of blissful bliss] - Akiva
How's that loneliness working out for you there, Akiva? - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
^^^ LOL - Marie
I suspect Helvetica is a rare treat for Akiva after so many hours of monospace fonts. Let's not deny him his dessert. - Tinfoil 2.0
Helvetica Neue *is* a treat. Ok, fine. :) - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

Out for a daddy-daughter day. I'm saddened at the "Oh, visitation day" looks I keep getting. Even if it was, hey, I'm handling my business.
people love to judge. you know what's important, tho. *fistbump* - Big Joe Silence
Screw all those people. - Brian Johns
How do you know that was the type of look? My guess is it's "damn I wish my kid was as cute as that" look - Mo Kargas
Mo, I have more divorced dad friends and family than non-divorced dads. The look is a mixture of knowing, pity and moral superiority. - Johnny from iPhone

Im going to start crowd sourcing myself a boyfriend. Musts: bearded, smart/techy, geek, compassionate, tall, strong, piercing eyes... #woozy
How tall is tall? - Stephen Mack
Can you do a Kickstarter for that? - John (bird whisperer)
No beard. :( - NOT THE CRICKET
Stephen, oh, say over 5'7"? I'm 5'5" so it's not hard to be taller than me. John, ha! I'll get all sorts of crazies that way. Jimminy aren't you a little young for me? #cougarish Haha! - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
If you say so. ;) - NOT THE CRICKET
And is a goatee sufficiently bearded? (I'm asking for a friend.) - Stephen Mack
Lessee: yes, yes, yes, I'd like to think so, 6', yes, very... so where do I send my CV? :-) - Steven Perez from Android
Wow, I fill most of those.... Is old and married a deal-killer? - Ken Morley
Aw. Nope, yes, yes, sometimes, nope, nope, ... and probably nope. 2.5 out of 7! - Andrew C (✔)

If there's a dustbin of history, who are the janitors of history? And what kind of benefits plan do they have?
Sometimes, we need the hazmat crew of history. - Morton Fox
I think the dustbin is a lie. Time is a hoarder. All sorts of historical detritus is overflowing through its halls, rotting and giving off foul odors. Faulkner meant it when he said the past isn't dead, it isn't even past yet. - Victor Ganata
If the past isn't dead, but it's giving off foul odors, I guess the past has bad hygiene. - John (bird whisperer)
Yep, parts of the past are quite gangrenous indeed. - Victor Ganata
So... cleansing fire, right? - Andrew C (✔) from Android
The past is a foreign country, and the smells are just unfamiliar to you. - Eivind
nah, i think it's the FUTURE that's a foreign country and the smells are just unfamiliar to us. the past is just a rotting carcass that won't stop trying to pretend that it's still alive. shambling horrors. - Big Joe Silence
LB hates stale candy!
It just won't stop. Someone with a sense of humor posted this on the Oconee Co. Sherriff's office page. BOLO (be on the lookout for) a large wooden ark said to be occupied by two animals of every kind. Ark is piloted by a man named Noah who may be releasing doves. The ark was last seen heading in the direction of Mount Ararat. Any contact either hop aboard or follow to high ground. - Eric Logan
Nice. :) - LB hates stale candy! from Android

It's not my favorite place to eat because of the noise level, but Red Robin makes a damn good burger. Plus they are big enough to make two meals out of!
The shakes are decent, too. - Katy S

I've never been able to make two meals out of a Red Robin burger. - Morton Fox
Neither have I. I also prefer to sit in the bar away from the kiddies, and I generally like kiddies. - Katie

Golden View Friendfeed Image Zoom — Chrome Web Store Release v1.0 —
Golden View Friendfeed Image Zoom - Chrome Web Store.png
Same basic idea as friendfeed_image_zoom userscript, but with a few compatibility improvements and all the Chrome Web Store auto-update goodness. For Chrome users, it's recommended to uninstall yesterday's friendfeed_image_zoom userscript and install this one (however, nothing breaks if both are installed at the same time). - Micah
It works! - John (bird whisperer)
John, Eeeexcelent. - Micah
Grazie! :) - MisterQ
You're welcome, MisterQ, thanks for stopping by. - Micah
Woot! Thanks for this! =) - rönin
Thank you, MICHAH. - Jenny H.
thank you ♥ - Lucretia, my reflection

@Sir. Piplos lo trovi qui Greasemonkey, cmq) - cecca
in alternativa se non vuoi installare greasemonkey c'è questa: - Angelo
Thanks! :) - *Chiara*
<3 - Batchiara
will this also work in Comodo Dragon? - Halil
I'm a little confused now as to what to install and how, I use Google Chrome, Comodo Dragon which is based on Chrome's open source, and firefox, as sometimes always run in to bugs so hate relying on 1 browser these days. Do I install both fixes? - Halil
I believe Comodo Dragon is compatible with scripts written for Google Chrome. If you can't install from the Google Chrome Web Store use the friendfeed_image_zoom version which works on both Firefox (with Greasemoney add-on) and Chrome-based browsers. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Hmmm, the Golden View add-on isn't working properly for me in Chrome 18. :( It opens a new tab with the FF Search menu.) - CAJ hates pants
Oh, never mind. My "HTTPS Everywhere" seems to interfere with the script. Hmmm. - CAJ hates pants
That could interfere, yes. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
♥ - TaS
grazie - Robbè
Tas, Robbe, you're welcome! - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Thanks! - In do
*bump!* - Stephen Mack
Outstanding! Thank You very much for this. - Stefano.
Glad it helps, Stephano, Indomabile. :) - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Micah, sorry to ask again, but still confused, in firefox how exactly do i check for updates, you said i need to install it manually, but will i be prompted when an update is available? - Halil
Easiest is just install again right now (it installs over-top). I'll make an announcement post when I do future upgrades. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
:) - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
PEOPLE OF FRIENDFEED, I IMPLORE YOU IN ALL CAPS: *Install* *this* *script* - Stephen Mack
Sorry. That would require me to switch browsers. I'll just stick with not opening pix. - Hookuh Tinypants
Firefox would be great, as not a fan of chrome. I seem to remember way back when on FF that when you clicked on a photo it came up, without all this preview nonsense, what happened? Despite Facebook's failings when you post something it links the text and descriptor of article neater, I'm pretty sure FF did this originally. For example a Youtube video would link with the text of the file instead of having to manually doing it... - Jason
The brain surgeons still fumbling with keeping FF alive made a brilliant alteration to the programming to change the way photos open (you're right, they used to just open in your browser, like a normal friggin' website). Because we haven't suffered enough indignities on this site. - Hookuh Tinypants
Jason, I made a Firefox version too (see first comment for link). - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Thanks, Micah have downloaded the Zip file. - Jason
Hookah, you reckon Facebook done this on purpose? - Jason
Not sure what you mean. They purposely made the change, claiming it was a security thing. Beyond that, I don't know if they have any other intentions behind their actions. - Hookuh Tinypants
Jason, the change was intentional - Ben Golub who still admins Friendfeed stated it was for security concerns. The technique in my script is safer than restoring the original behaviour, but brings back the convenience. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
It seems strange, that is all. But at least the site is still alive.. - Jason
It's ok. They can make all the changes they want. We've got Micah. I think we win. :D - Hookuh Tinypants
Micah FTW :-), I'm I doing something wrong, I downloaded the zip file and then I extracted it but there seems no change.. - Jason
Jason, you'll need to install the Greasemonkey Firefox add-on first: - then click to install my friendfeed_image_zoom extension. - Micah
Thanks Micah, that's great! - Jason
You're most welcome. :) - Micah
We should all buy FF - Jason
And bumping this one too. - Stephen Mack
*BUMP* for Adrian - Micah from Android
Very useful! - Son of Groucho
*INSTALLED* Bitchen dude! EDIT: Why'd they change that in the first place? Very strange. - Adrian
Bump! (I have a new laptop and needed this.) - Stephen Mack
NEW UPDATE: 1.14 - Resolved http/https protocol issue, causing Golden View Friendfeed Image Zoom to break, if HTTPS Everywhere ( ) extension is running. - Micah
Yessssssssssssssssss. - Akiva
Rad - Mark Trapp
SUCK IT, NSA. - Micah
(and by suck it, I mean have a nice day, good sirs) - Micah

Microsoft to shut down TechNet subscription service | ZDNet
GAH! I was just about to get a sub as I'm going back into tech. I might do a year before they shut it down next month. - LB's Bubba. The other 1
Not a good idea. This is one thing that allowed techs to get more familiar with the software to be able to support it. Its not going to help them in the long run. Not everyone has full free 90 days to become fully familiar with the software or have to resign up with a different email to get another 90 days to test out a build for a project. Now I'll have to include test OS licenses costs for any client that wants MS systems. - Me
Oh boo. I will miss this most definitely. As someone who never abused the system, I've always wondered when those who do would mess it up for the rest of us. - Hookuh Tinypants

LCD monitors don't have a degauss button.
One of the advantages of not using an electron gun to excite atoms to emit photons? - Victor Ganata
I miss it, actually. - Andrew C (✔)
The move from CRTs to LCDs made a big difference in the health of my eyes and sinuses, to be honest. I don't miss CRTs at all. - Victor Ganata
Sinuses? - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Yup, sitting in front of a CRT would dry *everything* out. - Victor Ganata
Some days, the degauss button was all that kept me going. - Meg VMeg
Hey, there's a $1 app for iOS to "degauss" the screen. - Andrew C (✔)
I always wondered if you could cause significant harm to anyone if you took the electron gun out of the casing and tried to shoot people with it, but then I realized that it doesn't really do much if you're not inside a vacuum except arc and short out. - Victor Ganata
BZZZZ!! *wiggle* - Big Joe Silence
On the other hand, I wonder if an electron gun would work as a space weapon…. - Victor Ganata
Now I want a degauss app! - Vezquex

10 Reasons Why You Should Sign Up for FriendFeed
I wish there was a AIR client for FF though. - barl0w
Twhirl works well for FF and it's an AIR client. - Bob M. Montgomery from twhirl
Great article. I want to learn more about the dumping the RSS feeder part. You should share some tips with that. Good stuff. - Amani
Love seeing FF through the eyes of someone who's not a traditional techie =) - FFing Enigma
Thanks Bob! - barl0w
A big part of why I wrote this post and have it running in my number one photo spot on Flickr right now is because I want more of my photography friends to sign up for the service. I *love* seeing photos here on FriendFeed and there are so many talented photographers who are not here yet who need to be. If we can get more of them to sign up, you guys will love their work. Of course there are many great photographers already on here but still a lot more who could join. - Thomas Hawk
I had to re-share this with all my FB friends. :) - Kelly W.
Still trying to figure out this whole friendfeed experience. I've had the account for a while and see lots of my twitter friends posting via ff - Demetri Mouratis
great piece! - mashable
Hi Demetri =) Different people use FF different ways because they want to get different things out of it. What are you hoping to get out of it? - FFing Enigma
Thanks for the tip. I had FF but really never 'got' what it was for. This helped! - Molly Nichelson from twhirl
Nice post Thomas. - Paul Wade
TH - for those photographers that are not on here, I put their flickr id into my Flickr Imaginary friend and see their images that way. However, it would be nice to get more photographers on here with their reader shares and such... - Justin Korn
This is definitely the best "Why Friendfeed" post I've seen. - Nick in Manila
Justin, agreed. I have a bunch of imaginary friend accounts for Flickr/Zooomr users as well. But it is nicer when they actually have accounts here, their work can be liked and commented to the larger FF community, etc. It seems like a few new people signed up today based on this post so I'm happy for that. Thanks Nick! - Thomas Hawk
I have AlertThingy FriendFeed Edition as well as AlertThingy v2 - Outsanity
Well said, Thomas. :) - Josh Haley
Nice list of reasons, all well thought out. While I'm at it, I wanted to tell you that I really like your new blog design too. - Karoli
Do most folks use FF in Standard or Real-time view mode? - Scott Loftesness
Only ever real-time.. it sits nicely on the second monitor as a Chrome App. - Greg Gannicott
Realtime here... - Chris Gulker
Did you just reformatted your post, Thomas? It a lot easier to scan through now. - Alan Le
Alan, a lot of times I post first and edit later. I probably shouldn't do that, but yeah, after posting I broke up some of the paragraphs better, bolded a few things etc., to make it easier to read. - Thomas Hawk
That's great. Make sure to check out Windows Live Writer for formatting blog posts if you haven't already yet. By the way, I love the new blog design. It's much better than when I helped you with the html way back. - Alan Le
Y'know... I must've spent two months randomly Tweeting things like "Will someone PLEASE explain to me why I should be using FriendFeed?" ... And then two days ago I start using my account (I'd had one for a while)... and NOW someone finally makes a post outlining why I should be here. You're two days late, Mr. Hawk, two days late. :P - Lou
actually, there's no search for Russian word forms on Frf. For me that looks as if there's no search at all - orie
hmmm.. I didn't know that orie. It seems like there is a lot of international users on FF, that's surprising to me. - Thomas Hawk
I've been trying to make sense of FF for months now, but every time I come away confused. As it is I feel like I'm drowning under all the social networking sites available. I use Twitter, Plurk and Facebook the most, and I use so I only have to post status updates once. How can I integrate FF into this without making things even more confusing? - Chris Taylor
oooh! I found the zooomr version of this post with no formatting and I whined somewhere else in my FF feed. This one with all the formatting is better :D - Tamar Weinberg
I really liked how you did a post on Flicker - MaryAnn Chick Whiteside
All good reasons but #10 is my #1 reason :) - Mark Krynsky
Mark - agreed. Also, Thomas ... very nice blog. I like. - Amani
@Tamar, the unformated text was a problem on the Zooomr image. Kristopher's fixed that bug now so text in descriptions on Zooomr photos should format correctly now. - Thomas Hawk
I wasn't using FF, but signed up after your post. Now let's see if it is really so useful ;-) - Marcel Körner
@Marcel also take into consideration who you are subscribed to. Aside from maybe four on your current sub list, they are not very active at all on FF. This will affect your experience here. - Carlos Ayala
Didn't know there was a "Porn" room on FF (see screenshot)... - David Young
how did you see that they are not active on FF? - Marcel Körner
David, the "porn" room on FriendFeed isn't all that active actually. I'm not really interested in porn per se, just thought it was a good group name to claim in the great FriendFeed land group name grab of 2008. - Thomas Hawk
@Marcel by their numbers, and the fact that i know most of them and can tell you first hand that they are not. (if you hover over people's names you will see their numbers) - Carlos Ayala
still hard to beat 5 years on for speed - Thomas Power

Argh! Monoprice said they shipped my monitor last night, but the delivery company said they only got the records, not the physical item. This was not reflected in the online tracking, which just said "out for delivery" or something. Hopefully will deliver tomorrow.
at least I learned when I called the delivery company that their delivery window is between 8 am and 4 pm. - Andrew C (✔)
... update: still not picked up from Monoprice. Norco (the delivery company) is pretty on the ball, with a lot of tracking, so they have the evidence that they never received it. I contacted Monoprice; they'll investigate for two days and then send a 'replacement' (odd choice of words, but eh). - Andrew C (✔)
Good thing I didn't try to get rid of my current monitor on Craigslist yet. - Andrew C (✔)
Step right up and hear me tell the tale of the 'overnight' delivery that took a week and counting. - Andrew C (✔)
Finally got it! Bad news: the panel is loose inside the monitor. Hasn't completely fallen out yet, but I think I'm going to try to get a replacement. - Andrew C (✔)
I guess overall I'm glad if I had to have fit and finish problems I'm happier having ordered from an American company than an eBay seller. - Andrew C (✔)
BTW, it seems like Monoprice's reply emails always go out right around 4 pm Pacific time, whether it's follow up to a chat hours before that or an email sent the day before. They always seem to wait till 4 pm. - Andrew C (✔)
New monitor is here! It's pretty darn big (27"). But actually no heavier than my old 20" monitor, because my old one had CCFL backlighting instead of LED. Unfortunately, the DVI cable is short, so I've got it backed up on my desk until a new cable arrives. - Andrew C (✔)

That's not what I'm talking about at all, Bubba. Haha! - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Do you find being introverted a hindrance? - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Hey, there are other introverts out there! You just don't hear from us ;) - Amit Patel
I think we may have scared her away. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
AndDick is so introverted he wants no part of FreindFeed. - Mary B: #TeamMonique from iPhone
:) different is good! I think there are many introverts here because we can moderate how much we interact with ppl without being overwhelmed. I like being with people but I need lots of time to myself, too. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Me, scared? Nah. :) It's hard being an introvert surrounded by extroverts who don't "get" me. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
I would say you get used to it, but that might be wrong. I went from being mildly introverted (and overcompensating) to being considerably introverted...and I'm 95% certain introversion cost me a significant amount of $$ during my working life. (Also, what Amit sez: Cute. I agree. When you do hear from us, we're pretending not to be introverts.) - Walt Crawford
jylli: I don't know about Zulema, but I'm certainly not being tongue in cheek. - Walt Crawford
I didn't mean to be tongue in cheek so I'm a bit confused. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

I really hoped that this would be the end of ALL TEBOW ALL THE TIME, but Belichick ruined that. This should be an interesting season. #NFL
Tebow must have some pictures of McD hidden somewhere. - Eric - Back to the Grill
I was hoping that if he got picked up, it would be by a team with a smaller fan base and media market. - John (bird whisperer)
Well, you know, Belichick, rarely does things without reason and he has the record to prove it. I think the press conference yesterday set the tone. He is gonna cut the media circus off at the knees. - Mary Carmen
I think Bill will do a damn good job of squashing whatever is left of Tebow's ego. I have heard conflicting reports of Tebow training @ TE or HB and him staying strictly QB. If he does stay QB, he will have no better teacher available than Brady. - Chris Topher
Very, very true. I think he would have a good shot as a TE. - Mary Carmen
One good thing is that having Brady as quarterback should put a stop to any quarterback controversies. But Tebowmania still may find a way. - John (bird whisperer)
Probably, but I think BB will put the smackdown on it. He has been very tight lipped about it. - Mary Carmen
As a Pats fan, I can't adequately express the rage I feel about this. They couldn't resign Welker, or get another top flight receiver, but they sign Tim Friggin' Tebow?! What. The. F. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
OMFG we lost Welker?!?! Jesus. No. NO. - Julie Kane
Their draft was a bit strange, too. - John (bird whisperer)
Are we sure he still is the best coach in football? cause you know..... (note: I am both Giants and Ravens fan so I am OK with him being not quite as good Belichick.) - ♫Jorge Covert, Trainer♫
I think Belichick signed a secret agreement with the NFL after SpyGate that forces him to play short-handed with non-NFL caliber bodies at key positions. Right now its cornerbacks and wide receivers. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Mapping Where Americans Eat The Most Fruits And Vegetables -
Mapping Where Americans Eat The Most Fruits And Vegetables
"Nutrition fads come and go, but fruits and vegetables are always trendy--they’re extremely good for us, no question about it. It’s not always easy for people to get access to fresh produce, though, especially if they live in food deserts (places where fresh food is hard to find). States with a higher density of farmer’s markets; acceptance of food assistance programs at the aforementioned farmer’s markets; and other retailers (like supermarkets and corner stores) that have lots of produce are likely to have residents that eat more fruits and vegetables every day. This map, provided in the CDC’s State Indicator Report on Fruits and Vegetables, reveals which states are eating enough produce, and which are falling behind." - Shevonne from Bookmarklet
And then there are the states where the produce looks pretty for shipping but tastes like nothing, also for shipping. - Mary B: #TeamMonique

Jellyfish ends Australian's Cuba-US swim attempt - Yahoo! News
"Five tries. Five failures. Australian Chloe McCardel became the latest endurance athlete undone by the warm waters and fierce jellyfish of the Florida Straits, abandoning Wednesday night her attempt to become the first person to swim across nonstop without a shark cage. Her team said she stopped "due to a severe debilitating jellyfish sting" as she stroked through the dark waters. The 28-year-old from Melbourne lasted just 11 hours after swimming off from Havana." - rönin from Bookmarklet

Two-faced kitten born in Oregon
"You're not seeing double. Again. A rare, two-faced kitten was born in Amity, Ore., on Tuesday. Stephanie Durkee, the owner of both the female kitten and its mother, took the two-faced cat to a vet, who say she's in good health. (She meows "loudly from both mouths," according to the Guardian.)" - Shevonne from Bookmarklet

Congrats. PS: I opened my account again and started up the "create collection" process for my Google Scholar file. It's still running half an hour later. I'll let it run for the next three hours at least...I look forward to seeing the results. - Walt Crawford
Wowowow, good job! - Meg VMeg
Hi Walt. Yeah, sorry, it shouldn't take that long... 3 mins at most. The good news is that we're moving out of time-consuming fundraising mode and into development mode (with $$ to hire contractors to help!).... we should get to fixing bugs like this soon. Sorry you are running into a bug now, and I hope you'll be up for giving it another go when we've given it a rev! - Heather Piwowar
Snoopy dance! - John Dupuis
Heather: Then I guess, since it's now been more than an hour, I should cancel it and try again some other time? - Walt Crawford
Walt, yup, cancel for now. can you email me your Google Scholar file so I can debug? Thanks! - Heather Piwowar
Heather: Done. (I don't know that I actually canceled it, but I shut down that tab.) - Walt Crawford
YAY! That is so exciting, and congratulations! - Laura Krier
Having your good news liked by oodles of people you like, admire, respect, haven't met yet, and/or have known for years? Happiness*2. Thanks, everybody. - Heather Piwowar

Thanks, Tam and Steve! Steve, the class had a beach-themed potluck breakfast for the graduation today, so she was a bit more islandy than normal (but she prefers to dress like this anyway). - Stephen Mack from iPhone
