Hello Friendfeed.
I miss conversations. brain cancer unfortunately can make every conversation a struggle. - Mike Nencetti
We miss you, too. Hoping and praying for the best for y'all. - Sucker DJ LB from Android
Just to clarify for all - left frontal lobe glioblastoma brain tumors affect personality and communication. If you met my wife you would have a normal conversation. When I talk to her she takes everything I say is an attack. I am on numerous Facebook support groups, our situation is common. She's doing good. she has lost some weight, had some falls. but is still independent. She still drives, she can be on her own. Chemotherapy will not cure her. Immunotherapy is her best hope for long term survival. - Mike Nencetti
You and your wife are always near in my thoughts. - vicster: full-bodied
Hey Mike. It's good to hear from you. I'm sorry to hear that conversations with Beverly are becoming increasingly difficult. I hope your support groups are helping you cope with the changes. I can't imagine how difficult this must be for you both. *hug* - Jenny H. from Android

Successful walk on the greenway with Beverly, two days after her chemo. She walked yesterday too.

She walked yesterday too. So to walk both days following a chemo is awesome. Still waiting to see if there are any side effect to her new chemo drug. none yet. - Mike Nencetti

How is it? I've always eyeballed it every time I'm at TJs. - rönin
I can't speak for Mike, but I thought it was pretty decent (especially for something you could pull out of the freezer.) - Jennifer Dittrich
I liked it. The cheese curds squeaked. I wish there was more gravy. But not bad for a frozen dinner. - Mike Nencetti from iPhone

So I'm looking for a couple projectors to be used to display documents in a medium size conference room with full lighting. (It's instructions for constructing a papercraft project, which they'll be working on.) I'm in some deep water with the various options. Anyone have experience with a sub-$500 that will work in a bright room? - cont -
Audio is being handled by a separate system and we'll be using laptops to provide the video. I have zero brand loyalty. :) - CAJ hates pants
Oh, and we'll be getting 'inexpensive' screens as well. - CAJ hates pants
Will you be projecting from a computer? Any reason not to buy a cheap HDTV & a Chromecast or HDMI cable instead (keeping in mind that the Chromecast will only work if you have standard WiFi available; it won't work if the WiFi requires you to go through a portal)? - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
We thought about that option but we'll have people around a large conference table with the display at one end. A projector will let us have a large image without the storage issues of the cheap HDTVs afterward. We'll be sending the video by laptop. - CAJ hates pants
cheaper projectors often do not display high res, and you get resized to 1024x768. Lumens (brightness) is great, but it is also nice when the laptop does not resize. We have a small powerful Optima projector but it was around 900$. - Mike Nencetti
In a way, high resolution would work against us. We're displaying documents detailing steps of putting together a project. Big is good in this case. :) - CAJ hates pants
Everybody always wants to get the most for the least $. I'm trying to balance quality with cost agains possible future reuse. - CAJ hates pants

This was going to be a different post. However, between starting it a few minutes ago and now(ish), I have forgotten what it was going to be. I suppose you can all back to whatever you were doing before you started reading this. (Assuming you remember.)

After recently hearing about how Twitter is (supposedly) heading towards the digital graveyard, I think I'm actually more interested in it. After all, we've apparently been zombies on Friendfeed for years. I highly doubt Twitter will completely die, regardless of their foot-shooting efforts.
I am almost using twitter. I may wind up using it to get news feeds. - Mike Nencetti

OK No more external powered USB HD's. They don't last long. Hell I think I've had pet rats live longer.
I like the kits, drives i put in them last long - Mike Nencetti
Yeah, either get an external enclosure that you can put your own drive in, or perhaps a WD Passport drive, no bigger then 500GB (bigger than that and reliability goes downhill). - April Russo

Hope it's a good one :) - Eivind from Android
she was able to enjoy her meal. She takes VSL#3 probiotic to help, along with the usual medicines. was a nice date - Mike Nencetti
This pic was taken on the anniversary of my wife's diagnosis of Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) grade 4. a year ago she was being prepped for brain surgery. At the time we were not sure if she would last this long. we now have hope. We focus on quality, not quantity. we celebrate the small victories. we persevere. After spending time on a few GBM support groups, I realize how fortunate these past 12 months have been. - Mike Nencetti
The cancer attacked the left frontal lobe, which is personality/communication. There are times she can hear everyone, but then cannot understand me, so I have to repeat things 3 times. Other times she is fine. It's my life now, i am used to it - Mike Nencetti

Shopping online for grills makes my head hurt.
Anyone care to recommend a gas grill? - Sucker DJ LB from Android

I am the only person in the US with my name. My kid's the only one with his. How many people have your name?
just me - Mike Nencetti
Six of me. - Janet from FFHound!
I am just a number (there's 9289 of me!) - Heleninstitches
It says 3 but it's probably all me at different addresses. - Rodfather
711 with my first name but 801 with my middle name (which I usually go by). - CAJ hates pants
my middle name is vanishingly rare. 3 people in the US have my first and last name. - Big Joe Silence
There are fewer than 1591 people (which is an odd way of putting it) named "Eivind." One or fewer of them share my last name. - Eivind from Android
734 with the same first and last name. There are nearly 1.5 million with my first name and over 150k with my last name. I knew from a very young age that I had a super common name. I was jealous of my sister who had a more unique name. - Jenny H. from Android
3 - Bren from iPhone
OTOH, it's kind of nice because it means people who try to Google my name aren't likely to find me. ;) - Jenny H. from Android
"There are 1 or fewer people in the U.S. named Amit Patel." Um, no. Not even close. - Amit Patel
"There are 2,253 people in the U.S. named Steven Perez." - Steven Perez
Looks like I'm the only john jacob jingleheimer schmidt. - Todd Hoff
28 people have my full married name. it's in the 2 thousands with my maiden name. - Lnorigb
Just me. - Betsy
I'm upset. Famous names for Fuller do not include Bucky. WTF mate, that's like the most famous Fuller. (2093) How they get the number is rough though; they do Percentage of Population with first * Percentage of Population with last = And then convert that percentage back into an integer, so it's probably not that accurate once you factor in cultural naming patterns, e.g. See Amit's comment. - NOT THE CRICKET
About 150. - Joe
Nine and I get email for at least one of them. - Kristin from iPhone
22 of me - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte from Android
Just one of me because I'm a goddamned unique snowflake. - Akiva
11 of me... and one of them lives across the damn street. - Jennifer Dittrich
Hmm. Using my legal name (adding the "er" at the end of the first name), the site comes up with 374. Using the name I use most everywhere, "1 or fewer," partly because apparently ***nobody's*** named Walt. I know that the ornithologist in the midwest also uses "Walt" as his first name, so "1 or fewer" is just strange. - Walt Crawford

I could drive to MoTO's part of MI in 12 hours. I need to make that happen one of these days.
I'll do shift driving with ya! - Soup in a TARDIS
*grabs the cooler!* WOOHOO - Soup in a TARDIS

You WILL be passing through PA to pick me up, right? - Janet
Of course! Let's see, that puts us at 20:37 one way... - Sucker DJ LB
Too many more people and we'll be forced to rent a party bus, LB. *Forced* I say! - Soup in a TARDIS
I'm small. I can squeeze into the hump seat or the trunk or whatever. - t-ra: taking the piss
No, no, no. T-ra is just being polite. We totally need a party bus. WITH A JACUZZI. - Soup in a TARDIS
*stocks up on liquor* - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte
I can intercept party bus somewhere in Ohio! - Janet from FFHound!
:D - Sucker DJ LB from Android
I don't have firm memorial day weekend plans. Just sayin. - t-ra: taking the piss from Android
If I ever reach the stage of independently wealthy- I will all pay your wages for a one week party bus to B's place event. *ponders numbers for lotto* - Janet
if you drive I77 let me know. still have not met LB... - Mike Nencetti
I figure I've been within an hour of MoTO several times, but always when I'm in the area for other reasons. And any other year, I would've had time this extra long weekend, but plans got changed suddenly last week and I'm only doing an overnight in Michigan. *sigh* Someday. - Betsy
What will Missus Dub say when the party bus of white wimmenz pulls up? - Sucker DJ LB from Android
Apparently all pole dancing. Seriously, nearly every party bus pic I can find has a pole dancing feature. Why? Whhhhhy? - Soup in a TARDIS
Oh, my. - Sucker DJ LB from Android
I'm now imagining the soundtrack for your party bus. - Katy S
I better not pick the music. If I do it will be nonstop country, folk, and motown. - Soup in a TARDIS
All perfect for pole dancing! - Katy S
I'm trying to imagine the pole dance act that would go with Bogle's "He's Nobodys Moggy Now" ( It's alarming. ETA: That was my favorite folk song as a kid. I just sang it over and over and over. - Soup in a TARDIS

Ugh. I hate being awake early on a weekend.
I wake up the same time every day, so i can fall asleep the same time every night. sorta the opposite of early to bed early to rise. - Mike Nencetti
