A guy runs a dating advice business and charges $2,000 an hour for one-on-one advice or $350 to respond directly to an email within 3 days if you aren't a current client... my point being, I need to start a dating blog, charm a ton of readers with my woes, get famous, and then get rich. That should totally work, right?

Congrats to Stephen Mack for 15 years at TiVo! I love the day by day blogs. Fascinating lore of Windows NT and Frontpage! (via

I love you, Melly. That is all. - Friar Will
"I said to myself, if I'm going to cark it I'm going to have a beer, so I got a Goldie out of the fridge and drank that; 'cause you know eastern browns are the second most venomous snake in the world." Lol! - Ken Morley

I'm pretty sure that if the world's second deadliest snake bit me on the tip of my finger, I'd [1] wrap a shoestring around the base of the finger as a tourniquet (sp?) and then grab a knife or cleaver or anything sharp and just hack that sucker off. Less agony in the long run, and you'd have a conversation topic for the rest of your natural life. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

Which is worse? "Help, I'm trapped under this dog, and I can't reach my beer." - Joe - Systems Analyst
Coffee will always be more important to me than beer; but, being trapped under a dog (or even near a dog, for that matter) will always be worse than being trapped under a cat for me. :P - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
But dogs are easy to get off of you. Just shout "squirrel!" in an excited voice and they'll head straight for the door. Of course, you will have bruise marks on the relevant body part marking the footplant locations used to launch themselves for the squirrel attack. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

Dr came to see Josiah about his neck stiffness/pain and has recommended we take him to the ER, as he now also has swelling along his jawline, and can't open his mouth wide enough to talk or chew properly :o/
OK, I hope the ER can sort him out. *hugs* - Pete
I hope it all works out. That's scary. - Anika
He doesn't have a fever, rash, or pain anywhere else. I think being a home-visit Dr with limited equipment she was erring on the side of caution, but it's still worrying. - Melly
Triage took over an hour and the waiting room is packed. It's going to be a long wait :o/ - Melly
I'm at home with Emily, by the way. Lucky Josh gets to do the honours. He's not fond of the idea of me being alone with a small child at the ER late at night. I'm grateful for that! - Melly
Also grateful for our public health system, which means both the Dr visit and the hospital visit this evening are free of charge. - Melly
*rooting for Josiah* - Betsy
Any update on Josiah? :-( - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Still waiting, watching Mr Bean on YouTube to help pass the time. Poor kid must be wrecked! - Melly
Thinking of y'all, Melly. - LB: Ratchet Bear
Hope you get a good report soon. - Kirsten
Thanks everyone. I'll probably try and get some sleep soon, it's 1am here. - Melly
*hugs* - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Hugs Melly. Prayers for only good news. - Janet from FFHound!
Oh, we have some action! He's been seen by a Dr and will now be seen by a paeds specialist. - Melly
The paed is needed because they can't get him to open his mouth wide enough to get a good look at his throat or take a swab. I have a feeling this is not going to be pleasant for anyone involved :o( - Melly
***hugs*** for all of you. - Jennifer Dittrich from FFHound!
Paed thinks it's neck sprain/strain (which is what we initially thought), but wants the ENT to see him to rule out anything on that end. - Melly
I'm heading to bed but will keep y'all posted. - Melly
Now they want to do bloods and a CT scan. - Melly from FFHound!
I hope they can set your minds at rest soon ((hugs)) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Poor Josiah! I hope the tests come back with good results and that it's "just" a strain/sprain. *hugs all around* - vicster: full-bodied
Poor boy! Hope it gets sorted soon. - Yolanda
Poor Josh.. how's he doing now ? - Peter Dawson
So after all that they decided to admit him for observation. I don't know any more than that yet :/ - Melly from FFHound!

How terrible for all of you. I'm hoping that Josiah is feeling much better very soon. - Greg GuitarBuster
Hugs & prayers. - David Lounsbury
sorry for all of y'all -- hope it gets sorted out soon. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Test results all came back clear and he is being discharged! - Melly
Yay!!! :)) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
That's good to hear, Melly. Somehow I missed all of this until just now. Hope you can all get some rest and recovery from Josiah's (and the entire family's) ordeal. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Poor kiddo! Glad everything's okay. Hope you can all get some rest. - Laura
Yay! - Corinne L
Hooray! - LB: Ratchet Bear from Android
Yay! - Betsy
Ouch! Glad he was discharged! Any word on what caused it? Allergy or something else? - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Neck sprain or strain, most likely from the way he was lying in bed & looking at his iPad while he was sick! - Melly
They're home now - he swears black and blue he's not tired and doesn't need to sleep ;o) - Melly
Whew! I'm glad he's home now and I hope you all are able to rest easy now. - Galadriel C. from Android
Glad it's just a sprain/strain. I sprained my neck before and while it's no fun at all, at least it's fairly minor. - Heather, 30k Camper
I'm so glad to hear that. I was really worried when I just now read the symptoms in the OP. - Spidra Webster
At least it's nothing more serious. - Eric - Watch Me Now from iPhone
I'm glad to hear it's not more serious... hang in there, Josiah :) - Brent Schaus
What Brent said. So glad it wasn't something more serious! - Tamara J. B.

because commuting is part of the fun! - Mike Nencetti
My issue with "Best Places to Work" is that in the past, I've worked for 2 companies who consistently get in the top 3 for the area BUT when the time comes for the newspapers, or whomever the regulating authority is to determine such lists, there is SO much pressure put on the employees to give highly favorable ratings so it doesn't feel like a true metric. - Tamara J. B.
That sounds pretty awful - Shevonne

Good things that happened to me this week: two separate commendations from management, several Elder God-size problems solved in record time, I might have convinced the cute blonde to see me abase myself in karaoke at the company picnic, and the vending machine in the break room gave me a gold dollar coin. Not a bad week.
Now, if I can just get a few podcast episodes out this weekend, I'll be satisfied. - Steven Perez

Today is my 15th anniversary of starting at TiVo. -
This was a blog-type thing I wrote about my first two weeks there (written in HTML, at a time before blogging software was commonplace). I don't like reading what I wrote from back then, the writing is awful. The layout is too! But I do remember what it was like in those early days. Crazy days. - Stephen Mack
I don't think the writing was awful. I enjoyed what I read. Thanks for posting this :) - Brent Schaus
Congratulations. - Eric Logan
Congrats! - Spidra Webster
And congratulations, Stephen! - Brent Schaus
I read the whole page. The writing was not awful. In fact, I kept wanting to read more. - Betsy
I liked it. Congratulations, Stephen! - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Thank you, Eric, Spidra, Brent, Betsy, and Stephan! (Brent, Betsy, and Stephan, thanks for reading it, and I'm glad you enjoyed it, but to me it just sounds like, "I ate this and that, and I worked long hours, waaaaah.") - Stephen Mack
I am enjoying reading the "smack talk" blog. What an adventure! - Amit Patel
I'm always interested in the seemingly boring details of what people do all day. "Oh, I work on projects" doesn't tell me anything, whereas "I tried to get the drivers installed, I appropriated a chair from someone's desk, and spent five hours writing part of a manual" sounds a lot more real. EDIT: when I said "seemingly boring" I mean that others might think they are boring but to me they're fascinating. I always wonder what people do at work. - Betsy
Woah, Tivo is that old? - Mo Kargas
Wow! Congrats, dude! - Jim is digging out.
Congrats Stephen. - Me
Congratulations, Stephen! Been a good ride so far? - Anne Bouey
A very good ride! And I'm such a different person from 15 years ago. - Stephen Mack from iPhone

We just finished moving and I can't say enough about how impressed I am with Adam. He's just the best. It's rained hard nonstop all day long with thunder and lightning but he just shouldered all the work so I didn't have to do much. He's been working all day every day this week and moving all night yet never once complains. I love him infinitely.
After all of that he's getting up and driving to Sacramento and back tomorrow (14 hrs of driving) to take Jonah to my mom's. I <3 my husband. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Awwww! He loves you! <3 - Yvonne from FFHound!

Day 2 of Windows 8 on a new touch laptop. It's not terrible but it still feels weird. Now if I could just connect to my work's wireless network to keep the updates and software installations going. The best part is the CPU jump from an older i3 to a 4th Gen i7. Wheee!
I'm also getting used to Windows 8, from Windows XP. Mine has a touchscreen but I've hardly touched it because I keep forgetting I can! - Melly
Now that's quite a leap in operating system! And I agree on the touching. I'm very trained not to touch the monitor. :) - (Curtis/Alan) Jackson
I was always telling the kids DON'T TOUCH THE SCREEN and now I'm meant to I don't know what to do with myself. - Melly

Tim Cook Soundly Rejects Politics of the NCPPR, Suggests Group Sell Apple's Stock
""When we work on making our devices accessible by the blind," he said, "I don't consider the bloody ROI." He said that the same thing about environmental issues, worker safety, and other areas where Apple is a leader. As evidenced by the use of "bloody" in his response—the closest thing to public profanity I've ever seen from Mr. Cook–it was clear that he was quite angry. His body language changed, his face contracted, and he spoke in rapid fire sentences compared to the usual metered and controlled way he speaks. He didn't stop there, however, as he looked directly at the NCPPR representative and said, "If you want me to do things only for ROI reasons, you should get out of this stock."" - Eric - Watch Me Now from Bookmarklet

If it's interesting to you -yes!!! - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
In my job I'm starting to learn about social media marketing, but I find some concepts difficult as I don't have a good grounding in marketing in general. Also, looking at job vacancies in the social media management field, I see many require some tertiary marketing qualifications. I'm just not sure how committed I can/will be. - Melly

It's covered by VET FEE-HELP, which means if in the future I end up in a job where I'm earning over $53K per year, I'll have to start paying back the government about $40 a week, but whilst there's indexation on the fee amount ($12K) there's no interest as such. And if I never earn over that amount, I never have to pay it back, ever. - Melly
I like that. That's how education should be handled here in the US. - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
