Sad we're losing FF. This is where I found Rachel fostering kittens, one of which I adopted. <3 you FF, for bringing me my Moxie. :)

Comparison: Brunette or Blonde (ignore adorable babby and do not let her sway you)

Babby picture wins! - Bruce Lewis
Definitely brunette. - Anika
Brunette but you rock both. - Kisha
*wonders if Mo is using his powers to sway the peeps* ... - Penny
brunette with high lights? - Heather
I would like to state definitively that the threat of robot lasers in no way affected my opinion, and I have never been coerced by Mo in any manner, shape or form. - Bruce Lewis
Heather - I was considering that ... Bruce - maybe the lasers didn't sway you but clearly the totally adorable babby did!! (I'm not surprised) - Penny
Brunette! - Rachel Lea Fox from iPhone
brunette - VALZONE#SCREWED
Brunette - Scott. Cat Herder.
Yes. :) - Steven Perez
Overwhelming votes for brunette. It *is* much easier to maintain ... - Penny
Brunette, but you look good either way. - John (bird whisperer)
Brunette. I am completely missing the part where Mo expressed his opinion in any way I could perceive consciously. And I am chilly, so no lasers could be involved. - Mary B: #TeamMonique
Eh, what did I tell ya. Booyah! - Mo Kargas
Brunnette - Cardeen Risen
Brunette - ovigia
OMG. All the feels. Baby Sophie and me looking so much younger! And with long hair :( - Penny

Rachel and Kevin are extremely thoughtful and generous people—we joined them in Hollywood tonight vis-à-vis tickets they offered to the Part I Finale taping of So You Think You Can Dance #SYTYCD

Look up spontaneity. This is how it reads: Rachel and Kevin along with their friends Paul and Karen flew down to LA this morning with no luggage for the finale show (Kevin scored place-holder tickets 2 months ago by signing up online). They were pretty sure they would get extras, and Rachel knew we were in the area based on the LA FriendFeed meet-up thread http://friendfeed.com/friendf... , so I got a DM. When I showed the message to my wife, she jumped up and down and screamed—that kind you'd expect when hitting the lotto. Yes, we're fans of the show. So, they waited in line outside the Kodak theater half the day to trade in the place-holder tickets for the real thing, and longer still to secure the extras for me and my wife, and we met them in queue. Wow. Just wow. Pics or it didn't happen attached. - Micah
Just meeting Kevin and Rachel in person, making that transition from online to on pavement today, was fantastic. And SYTYCD—what a show it was (everyone else will have to wait till Wed night to see it). Rachel, Kevin, we don't know what to say, except: Thank you :) PS. We still don't know if you made the last flight out of LAX tonight, but safe travels. - Micah
BTW, tonight I got a life-time free pass from Laura when I ramble on about FF 'this' or a friend on FF 'that'. There are no online friends and IRL friends. Just: friends. - Micah
I see... is that Kevin :) ? - K.D.
K.D. - yes :) - Micah
You're welcome, Micah and Laura! We also had a fantastic time and it was great to meet you IRL. We *did* catch our last flight out and are now safely re-ensconced back home in the SF Bay area! This whole trip, thrown together at the last minute, relied on a whole lot of things falling in to place and we were really lucky that everything worked out! The show was phenomenal, and we're... more... - Kevin Fox
LOL. My voice is half gone. What a day. And it was our pleasure, Kevin. Glad you're all home safe and sound. Time for sleep now. - Micah
Yay Friends!! Glad you both could make it and that you also had a great time. It was totally so cool to meet you both! You were awesome line companions! And Micah, I realized that you are the first FriendFeed Friend that I have met IRL and in the wild (as in not at a FriendFeed function or FriendFeeders wedding or something). And you were just like I expected you to be, warm and... more... - Rachel Lea Fox
Nice purse Rachel - Benjamin Golub
What a wonderful experience for all of you! - Anne Bouey
Thanks Ben! And Anne, it was really awesome!! - Rachel Lea Fox
Yes this was a great adventure, and we really enjoyed ourselves too. Great to meet both of you! - Paul Wilcox
Likewise, Paul (and Karen). Oh, and if you heard the contraband sound of a cell phone that rang at one point, that was the dude right in front of me in the next row o_O - Micah
That's great for all of you! - Anika
Anika, indeed :) See you on Saturday http://friendfeed.com/micahwi... - Micah
Micah, I didn't hear that one, but a bunch of people around us had phones and cameras. Did you get yours in the theatre? - Rachel Lea Fox
We coat checked our camera, but we got Laura's cell phone through. Three guys in front of us were taking pics with their phones the whole time (well, they left half way through though). - Micah from iPhone
They Left? Losers. By the way security barely searched my purse, I could have easily hid my iphone in there and got it in. Just didn't want to risk it with the tight timing to catch our plane. Still, kinda wish I had a photo from inside. So so glad you got the before photos. Can't wait to see the show tonight though! Did you guys decide who are you are voting for? - Rachel Lea Fox
oh! how much fun is that!! I love happy stories! - Nathalie
Wow, it sounds like you had a wonderful time. I'm glad that you did! - Michael Fidler
What? The Fox's came and went? Awesome. Sounds like you guys had a great time. - Mark Krynsky
Who is who in the pictures? - Rochelle
Rochelle, hover images for alt tag, order is left to right. - Micah from iPhone
Excellent! :) - Rochelle
Mark, trips to LA tend to be that way for us, though this one was more frantic and rushed than they normally are. We have lots of family in the LA area so often when we come down its for a short weekend for a family event and then are gone again. I think this was my first ever trip to LA where we didn't get a chance to see family. It was a crazy tight schedule too, we got in, stood in line, got our tickets, ate dinner, saw show and made the last flight of the night. It was a crazy cool day! - Rachel Lea Fox
So how did the job interview go? ;) - Josh Haley
Josh, I coming to work for you, didn't Johnny tell you yet? - Micah
Rachel, we just voted for ... drum roll ... Jeanine. She's not better in terms of pure technique, but she earned it, especially last night. - Micah
I also voted for Jeanine. I didn't think I would, I had Kayla first and Jeanine and Brandon tied for second before going to the taping. But Jeanine just impressed me so much yesterday and while I don't think it all showed as well on TV she still gave an amazing how and I think she does deserve to win. However I will be happy if either Kayla or Jeanine wins. - Rachel Lea Fox
Alright, Micah! We can pay you only in LOLs. Not sure what that converts to in US$. Glad to have you aboard! - Josh Haley
Sounds pretty hectic Rachel...but if in the future you guys have a little more time I'm sure we can schedule an impromptu FF meetup over here. - Mark Krynsky
The US Lollar is currently worth about 1.2 Canadian Lollars. It used to be even, but as the economy recovers we're getting our sense of humor back. - Kevin Fox
++Kevin - Josh Haley
What Josh said (which converted to Canadian would be: +++Kevin) - Micah
Bump for the good times. - Mark Krynsky
*lol* Awesome!!! - Rachel Lea Fox
Indeed =) - Micah
Yay for the good time bump! - Kevin Fox
This. THIS was so amazing. Will never forget it, Rachel and Kevin. Thank you for this memory. - Micah
Awww! We had an awesome time! And man, Jeanine... - Kevin Fox from iPhone
I want to like this again! :) - Rachel Lea Fox

With Paul's departure from Facebook today (November 12, 2010), I've heard several FFers talk about who's still at Facebook. I've seen various different numbers, none of which I think are accurate.

Tudor Bosman http://friendfeed.com/tudor: Software Engineer at Facebook (see http://www.linkedin.com/in...). - Stephen Mack

Technically my first day at Mozilla isn't until Monday. :-) - Kevin Fox
I will also remove this if any FF employees think it's too creepy. :) - Stephen Mack

You are both thorough and scary :) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
KLevin, tehcnically, this is your last day here and your not part of the FF team ! - Peter Dawson

Wild AND Crazy - Eric - Final Countdown
OK, took some editing but I think the above is accurate. If anyone knows where Ross M. or Goutham P. are now, please let me know! - Stephen Mack
Many thanks to people who provided info, especially Rochelle. - Stephen Mack
Rachel: That's definitely an awesome pic. I had a hard time choosing, you guys had a lot of great events. - Stephen Mack
Wow that is a great list I should probably try an add a few people. FriendFeed very good micro blogging, thanks. - Robert Bridge
Thanks Robert! Updated Ross's employer with information Anne B. found on his Facebook page. - Stephen Mack
He made them an offer that they could eventually refuse? - Stephen Mack
*snicker* - Big Joe Silenced
Bump in honor of today's FB IPO. Time to do more creepy digging to see what's up with the FF team! - Stephen Mack
Updated Gary's entry. - Stephen Mack
Updated Jim's entry. He's apparently left Facebook. (I think I remember him confirming this when I had lunch with him last month!) - Stephen Mack
Updated Kevin's entry. - Stephen Mack
Overall status as of May 2012: Of the 14 people who were ever FriendFeed employees, 7 are still at Facebook (Ana Y., Ben G., Bret T., Casey M., Dan H., Sanjeev S., and Tudor B), 6 have departed from Facebook (Ben D., Gary B., Jim N., Kevin F., Paul B., Ross M.), and 1 is unknown (Goutham P.). - Stephen Mack
Stephen, Goutham worked at RockYou for a bit in 2010 and now works for Google. Also, how have I not seen this thread before?! I remember you taking that picture at Kitchen Table - fun times :) - Ross Miller
now this is creepy.. some1 is stalking all the former employees of FF :)- - Peter Dawson
Peter, I wonder who? Ross, thanks! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Jim is now at AeroFS. - Anne Bouey
Stephen, also Goutham was a summer intern the year before the Facebook buy. He did not transfer to Facebook. Ross did you transfer to Facebook, I can't remember. - Rachel Lea Fox
oh and I think Ben D. has left AOL. But I can't confirm that, I just seem to remember something about that. *shrug* - Rachel Lea Fox
Anne, AeroFS looks cool! Congrats Jim!! - Rachel Lea Fox
Ben Darnell is at Dropbox. - Tudor Bosman
Also, Dan Hsiao is no longer at Facebook (no more details). - Tudor Bosman
Goutham Patnaik is at Google. - Tudor Bosman
And yes, both Ross and Goutham were interns and were never Facebook employees after the acquisition. - Tudor Bosman
Thanks Tudor! Updated above. - Stephen Mack
Overall status as of May 22, 2012: Of the 12 people who were ever FriendFeed employees plus 2 interns, 6 are still at Facebook (Ana Y., Ben G., Bret T., Casey M., Sanjeev S., and Tudor B), 6 have departed from Facebook (Ben D., Dan H., Gary B., Jim N., Kevin F., Paul B.), and 2 were interns who never went to Facebook (Ross M., Goutham P.). - Stephen Mack
And now there are five. - Mary B: #TeamMonique
Indeed. I'll update when I get back from vacation -- by then we should know more about Bret's new venture. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Oops, I see I never updated this. Stand by. - Stephen Mack
Bret's entry updated. - Stephen Mack
Overall status, as of June 15, 2012 (updated on September 13, 2012): There are 12 people who were ever FriendFeed employees. (In addition, there were 2 interns (Ross M., Goutham P.) who never went to Facebook, per Tudor B., above.) So, of the 12 official FriendFeed employees: Currently, 5 of 12 are still at Facebook (Ana Y., Ben G., Casey M., Sanjeev S., and Tudor B), and 7 of 12 have departed from Facebook (Ben D., Bret T., Dan H., Gary B., Jim N., Kevin F., Paul B.). - Stephen Mack
So basically we're gradually losing FF advocates within the mothership. :-( - DB, Lil LB's Dad
So clearly we need to either recruit current FB'ers to start using FF or get FF users employed FB, or both. - Andrew C (✔)
13 Sep 2012: what was the cause of the outage? But perhaps more importantly, *who* kindly fixed it (and from where) ? [If FB open sources FF, who would be willingly to maintain it?] - Adriano
And whoever it was, I'd happily buy them a nice dinner. - Meg VMeg
Per Tudor (in this thread http://friendfeed.com/friendf...) it was Sanjeev who saved us. THANK YOU SANJEEV! - Stephen Mack
SANJEEV! - Josh Haley
bump just to immortalise this pix and the start-up crew ! - Peter Dawson
Ana left Facebook, no more details. - Tudor Bosman
Thanks Tudor -- I updated her entry. Overall status, as of September 20, 2012): There are 12 people who were ever FriendFeed employees. (In addition, there were 2 interns (Ross M., Goutham P.) who never went to Facebook, per Tudor B., above.) So, of the 12 official FriendFeed employees: Currently, 4 of 12 are still at Facebook (Ben G., Casey M., Sanjeev S., and Tudor B), and 8 of 12 have departed from Facebook (Ana Y., Ben D., Bret T., Dan H., Gary B., Jim N., Kevin F., Paul B.). - Stephen Mack
Thanks Tudor and Stephen for the update. - Meg VMeg
Casey left Facebook as well (which, as he's Ana's husband, is no big surprise :) ). No more details. - Tudor Bosman
Ah, so three now. Thanks Tudor. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Not sure how I missed Tudor's update back on October 2, but I have now updated Casey's entry. - Stephen Mack
Overall status, as of October 2, 2012: There are 12 people who were ever FriendFeed employees. In addition, there were 2 interns (Ross M. and Goutham P.) who never went to Facebook, per Tudor B., above.

An update of sorts, which I guess is in and of itself creepy. I was reading a recent piece on Google Reader, and I was struck by the fact that Darnell jumped from Google Reader to FriendFeed (there are similarities between the two orphaned applications, when you think about it). Then I saw that Darnell made his move right before the Facebook acquisition. After reading subsequent... more... - John E. Bredehoft
Bump. Updated a few folks above to show they're at Quip. I think it's still the case that 3 of the 12 are at Facebook (Ben, Sanjeev, Tudor). - Stephen Mack
Thanks for the update Stephen! - Zu from AOD
Bump! I think the count is still three. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Bump. - Crisco
Whats the number now? - Me
I don't think it's changed. - Stephen Mack
I never noticed how creepy that first pic was. Not waving, but...? - Meg VMeg
Meg, I surprised them when the FF employees were eating lunch at a restaurant on Castro in Mt View, now closed. (I think I was stopping by to give Kevin something.) I wanted to take their picture but it was bad lighting so I told them to pretend I was a paparazzi stalking them ("no pictures please"). I might be able to dig up the original post.

Jim #teamFFrank
Sometimes it doesn't take a gift or even a phone call. Today was a disappointing day for my family. My brother, Frank who has been battling cancer for the last six months, was scheduled to have his tumor surgically removed today. It didn't work out that way. - Jim #teamFFrank from Posterous
The surgeon was concerned that Frank's tumor had grown larger in recent weeks and wanted an MRI done to see if she would have to revise her plan for the surgery. As a result the surgery was put off until Friday at the earliest and possibly next Wednesday. - Jim #teamFFrank
This was a hard pill to swallow, but we're doing the best we can. Bearing with us in our difficulty are dozens and even hundreds of people around the world, some of whom we will never meet in person in this life, who are praying for Frank and expressing support for him and my family. - Jim #teamFFrank
The simplest and, to me, the most moving show of support came from my friends on the social networking site Friendfeed. A while ago, my sister snapped a pic of me, my wife and our daughters with Frank. We were all wearing shirts that my mother had made for us which say, "Team Frank" on them. Frank has his own shirt which says simply "Frank." - Jim #teamFFrank
Someone, I'm not sure who, on Friendfeed who had seen that picture simply changed their user name to include Team Frank. That's all it took. - Jim #teamFFrank
Throughout the morning as we waited for answers and received none, and then through the afternoon back at home, I checked in on Friendfeed. Every single time it opened in my browser, at least one more user, sometimes four or five, had changed their names to include Team Frank. I told my parents, my sister and my brother about it before I left the hospital. All afternoon, as I sat trying... more... - Jim #teamFFrank
I'm amazed, touched, humbled and grateful. So is my family. - Jim #teamFFrank
Later tonight, or tomorrow or whenever, all those friendfeed users will change their names back, but I and my family will never forget the day a bunch of my virtual, but very real, friends did a simple thing that brought us all a tremendous amount of comfort, blessing and support. - Jim #teamFFrank
So, Friendfeed, Team Frank says thank you and bless you. - Jim #teamFFrank
I have tears in my eyes and there aren't many of us who's lives haven't been touched by cancer. Whatever we can do, know that we will, and that you have a bunch of is in your corner and Frank's as well. <3 - Derrick
Thanks to your whole family for being such great examples! - Kevin L
Let us know if there's more us peeps around the world can do. Take care of your wonderful family as best you can. - Steve C, Team Marina
Friendfeeders, whether they changed their user names or not, have been a mainstay of support for me personally throughout this time. Today was just one more example of how supportive you all have been for months now! - Jim #teamFFrank
Take it from this survivor, you brother will kick cancer's ass. He is surrounded by love and support which are crucial to fighting the fight. He will beat this. Thinking do many good thoughts for y'all. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Like Derrick, I too have tears in my eyes. Many blessings to you and your family as you move through this process. Go Team Frank! Where can the rest of us get a t-shirt?! - Corinne L
I'm teary just reading this. I <3 my FFriends! - LB needs a break. from YouFeed
Many hugs, and hopes that this delay will be for the best for Frank in the longer run. - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤

Bump for origin of "Team Frank" in case anyone missed it. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
*bumped again* - LB needs a break.
Just reread this post and again feel lucky to be a small part of everyone's lives here. #gofrankgo - Liza + = ?
From Jim's FB today: "From an email I received from a member of our church just now: I have a feelng that Jesus is standing by the gate, or the front door, or whatever it is that leads into heaven, wearing a Team Frank tee shirt and waiting to give his friend a great big welcome. I think all of us feel like we know Frank, and we're glad we do." <3 - LB needs a break.

What is your FF Comments/Likes Ratio? (Comments divided by Likes to 2nd decimal place - as of now) - http://flickr.com/photos...
What is your FF Comments/Likes Ratio? (Comments divided by Likes to 2nd decimal place - as of now)
1.05 (670/633) - Micah from Bookmarklet
Can you remind me again where to find those stats? - Brian Johns
Brian, go to "Me" link (http://friendfeed.com/brianjo...) which defaults to the Feed tab. Look at the sidebar on the right, below Discussion. - Micah
0.75 (926/1226) - still relatively new here - mikepk
I only see my stats for the last week (17/14 = 1.21) Please tell me your 670 number is for more than just a week! - Brian Johns
1.44 (566/391) for brianjohns (after week tally you should see a comma then 'all time' count - I can see it on your page) - Micah
OK, sorry. I'm a total dumbass. I stopped reading after the weekly totals... - Brian Johns
3.74, which seems way off of everybody else's. I wonder what that says. I comment a lot more than I like. - Cyrus Lendvay
FFers use FF with their own strategy or simply default tendencies. The ratio is an interesting snapshot of behaviour. Thanks for joining in everyone, hope more keep flowing in. - Micah from twhirl
0.79 - Brian Roy
0.77 - Shey
0.76 - FFing Enigma
1.39. - Rochelle
1.61 - I only 'like' when I want to throw my support behind a topic but don't have anything constructive to add. - Bjorn Stromberg
5.08 (3181/626) ! - ◄ani625Ξ ಠ_ಠ
0.66 - I tend to 'like' things without needing to comment further, I guess, and I notice I usually like the things upon which I comment. Well, frequently. - ɐ ɯıʞ sıɹɥɔ
.39 (2457/6242) I guess I don't comment much. I do 'like' a lot of things, it would seem. - Bren
0.62 then again i have over 11,000 comments - Cee Bee
1.23 (5287/4229) - I am put to shame by Cee Bee's participation, good grief! - Lindsay

yes, thanks for the correction. lindsay, you're making me feel bad. lol - Cee Bee

1.55 endlessly repeating. This Like/Comment included. - Dana D
before this comment: .69 I kid you not. - InPerpetualMotion(Gina k)
So far: Average: 1.27 | Median: 0.81 ... (if you average 1 comment per like, you'd be 1.0 ... if you're 0.xx you might herd content more than discuss ... if you're whole numbers above 1 you may not 'like' much or discuss plenty or both) - Micah

I tend to like allot of photos which really don't need comments. - InPerpetualMotion(Gina k)
InPerpetualMotion(Gina k), I really liked this 'Like' of yours (in a series of pics, so I flickr fav'd it): http://friendfeed.com/e... and commented. Thanks! - Micah

Thanks jamar78 and Marg! - Micah
A recent change in FF: now the comment count shows total number of comments (previously multiple comments in one thread only counted as one) http://friendfeed.com/e... so all the numbers above are from the old methodology.... - David HC Soul

*bump* - Micah
1.26 (2965/2346) - Micah
Thanks, Glen and pea! - Micah
Looks like my ratio as flipped again (comments back to dominating again). Seems to match my own awareness I've lately been commenting without Liking (commenting is my inherent recognition of value to me and the additional Like is when it merits an extra bump to help discovery by others). - Micah
.38 - Ryan Dadey
Ryan, I have to say, that's one high caliber ratio ;) - Micah
An update it's .44 which is an improvement from .36 - Michael Fidler

Amani, so your comments have climbed a bit. - Micah
Thanks, Eric. - Micah
yes, but i am not consciously "not liking" things - Amani from IM
Probably, just chattier then :) - Micah
I'm down from 7.16 to 6.94 :-) - Ken Sheppardson
the live NBA playoff threads have ALOT to do with it. - Amani from IM
Ken, the FCC may be interested to explore how your "I'm down" may be offensively self-deprecating ;) - Micah

4.52. I don't bother to like things I've commented on, since commenting already flags it as interesting. - Andy Bakun

Yeah, that's a decent upward rise in comments, Nicholas. - Micah
.6 (6,000/10,000) 3rd update - Now it's time to flip this on its head. My goal is to have (16,000/16,000) next time I post here. Regardless of what happens, I'm just looking forward to the next 10,000 comments, likes, posts, and new relationships I make here. It's all good! - Michael Fidler

And thank you Jimminy, Pete, Bren and Penguin! - Micah

Micah, are you doing something with these numbers? If so sounds interesting. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
0.58 - Absentee
Jimminy, I'm copyrighting every single number. It's kind of a honeypot ;) Actually, it was curiosity mostly, but I also hope to build a sampling (small and self-selecting as it may be) for anyone who might want to analyze it. - Micah
Jonas, James and Kurt - thanks you! - Micah
You're welcome. I hope the results do some good. :-) - Absentee

12.23 (844 / 69 ) I guess I take my likes seriously ;) - Chris Myles
Wow I didn't realize I was so out of whack!! 12.23 that's got to be a record (and I don't even import my feeds with the summary as a comment)!! - Chris Myles
Thanks JA, Chris (wow, 12+ is unusual :), Serkan and Nine! - Micah
Micah.. I told you I take my likes seriously; ). You *might* want to ask (in a separate post) what percentage of likes were used to "bookmark" a post or save it for later VS actually "liking it". I NEVER used like for that.. but I did use a private group that if filled with my own topics (and comments).. - Chris Myles
1.78 (8529/4782) - Micah
Likes are down relative to comments, which matches my much lower frequency of liking. I'm a more selective liker than ever. - Micah
I don't think I could argue that any particular kind of ratio is "best", because if Lurkers like to Lurk and cultivate (via Likes) and the Chatty-ites love to chat, to pump out much many more comments than Likes, each can be happy and make for a great social experience. - Micah
383/372 - Ashish
'Just clicking "Like" seems too easy' — Jason, that's because you're from the Chatty-ite tribe :) - Micah
Thanks, ashish. - Micah
wow, what a difference time makes, when i 1st posted on this thread, 6.43%, now = 1.25%, for a 5.18% difference, :o (and this is the earliest post to date i've recovered of my activity on ff) - chaz2b
chaz, I think there's been a big fluctuation for most people (maybe not that much). This is the oldest post on which you commented that you've recovered? - Micah

Thanks, Bren. - Micah
Thank you, Alex :) - Micah
that was my third post... It's interesting to see how the number has changed. of course, I manipulated the number to a degree, because I stopped "liking" things for a while... - Bren
Bren, the other thing that can seriously throw off someone's stats is a feed that upon each item it imports adds a comment automatically. - Micah
true. that can seriously inflate comment stats, of course. Then you have someone like RAPatton, who posts a gazillion comments, in part because of his playlist posts where he will list each song in a separate comment. I found, after this post in fact, that I tended to "like" things much more frequently than comment on them, that I was lurking instead of participating. I have changed the way I use ff rather considerably, and I think for the better. - Bren
Thanks, Sarah, Tutivillus. - Micah

Jenny, resistance is futile; embrace the rising tide of comments. - Micah
Comments are more difficult and time consuming than Likes. I'd be happy about a high comment:likes ratio except that many are surely imported from feeds, while every Like is manual. - Mike Chelen

The black one has stunning blue eyes. I've never seen that before! - Kevin Fox from iPhone
CUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUTE!!! - Katy S
I've seen blue eyes on a black cat before. There could be some siamese in it's background. I can't really tell from the pic - does it have a wedge-shaped head? It might outgrow the blue eyes, though. How old is it? - Katy S
Cute cute cute cute cute!!! - Georgia
The blue eyed black cat is quite different. Cute. - Louis Gray
Katy, I'm not sure if he has a wedge-shaped face. I will get better photos of them soon. They are not brothers, the black one is around 5 weeks old, 18.7oz (so he could still outgrow his blue eyes, but also might not) and the tiger is about 6.5 or maybe 7 weeks 24.3 oz. - Rachel Lea Fox
The Chuck Jones classic "Feed the Kitty" has a black kitten with blue eyes. - Spidra Webster
Precciousss kittahz! You'z so cute you look yummy! LOL I'm just kidding, I wouldn't =) - Franc, a rememberer
wow both super cute, but yeah I've never seen a black cat with blue eyes before, my black cat has the yellowest eyes I've ever seen - Toby Graham
Toby, we aren't sure if he will keep them. At 5 weeks old he could still go either way, but we are excited to see if he does! They are both super sweeties! But baths are in their near future. If you all could smell them through friendfeed... well you would still find them cute, but stinky cute!! - Rachel Lea Fox
Awww.. my cat was dusty-black and hella stinky when I adopted him. xD - Franc, a rememberer
Blacky seems to be sick. He isn't eating much and is throwing up most of what he eats. We will be going in today. I'm sure his stinkiness isn't helped by his being sick. But we will get it all worked out. - Rachel Lea Fox
super bas lepa slika - Milenko Raljic
Ken Gidley
Had some episodes of vertigo over the past 24 hours when tilting my head. Dr. diagnosed me over the phone, and prescribed YouTube for cure. And it worked. Life is weird.
Video of how to do the cure: http://www.youtube.com/watch... - Ken Gidley
After reading about this, I'm 95% sure other FF'ers treated themselves this way - Kevin Fox maybe? - Ken Gidley
Wow. How do you feel now? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Fine after 3 minutes of 'repositioning my ear rocks' :) - Ken Gidley
Before I did the 'maneuver', I could make the room spin by tilting my head to the left. After, I can't reproduce the effect. - Ken Gidley
I love living in the future. - Scott. Cat Herder.
Kevin had the same thing. Used the exact same video. It took a few times but it worked. So awesome. - Rachel Lea Fox

Our data center (SVColo) performed an upgrade to their core network switch this evening. Something went wrong, and the operation took 30 minutes instead of 5. We apologize for the problem.
we are back - K.D.
I wondered. Glad you are back! - Rachel Lea Fox
No problem. Just don't scare us like that again ;) - Mark Krynsky
Ok otherwise it was going to be an topic on Twitter. - Madhav Tripathi
I forgive you. - Vezquex
I thought FriendFeed would have deployed mobile datacenters across the US by now. - imabonehead
Talk to Scoble about getting you guys on Rackspace :) - Jason Cronkhite from Alert Thingy
Jason: we would love to host FriendFeed but any hoster will screw up from time to time so I would rather win their business on the strength of our technology and service. Our CEO puts his personal cell phone out there (I don't know of any other hosting company CEO that does that, plus mine is +1-425-205-1921). not to mention I have some major motivation to make sure FriendFeed stays up. :-) - Robert Scoble
Compete with Wave and let people run their own Friendfeed servers. - Vezquex
Thanks! I almost sent SOS via Twitter...but u guys were fast! :D - Roshan Ramachandran
Oh, and it was nice of you guys to arrange your downtime for when I was flying and off the net! :-) - Robert Scoble
The upside is I saw the 'new and improved' twitter web interface for the first time. When do I have time to do that normally :D - Micah
@scoble, that's just it. I've only known Rackspace to screw up once and it was due to some guy driving a car into the data center. Plus, all the other perks you mentioned. - Jason Cronkhite
Andy, long time :) - Micah
Something changed with this downtime, didn't it? All images are now hosted on friendfeed-media.com instead of the old i.friendfeed.com - Mitch
Mitch, the friendfeed-media change was deployed yesterday and unrelated to the outage. - Paul Buchheit
siktirtmeyin datacenter'ınızı. FF gitti diye ödümüz koptu aq. - öküz

Every year I forget to go and every year I wish I went. :( - Louis Gray
I am making it my goal to go next year. By then I'll be out of school again and in between training seasons. I'm adding it to my calendar right now, dammit. - Hookuh Tinypants
Yay! Thanks for coming! - Kevin Fox
Awesome!! I'm so glad you came Stephen. I'm sorry I didn't make it back out to talk to you at the end of the line when they cut us off at the beginning. You know how it is, the Spider Queen has needs, the werewolf needed a new bone and the swamp hand stolen someones candy again. You can't disappoint the Spider Queen if you want to stay free of her web! ;) I have photos and video going up over on the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/haunted... I'll post at least the video here too! :) - Rachel Lea Fox
It was really great -- sorry I didn't get to talk longer with you Rachel (or even see Kevin at all), but I quite understand how busy you were! Next year, I gotta organize a FFmeetup there with Hookuh and anyone else who can go. - Stephen Mack
Indeed! I really wanted to go but between Nike and school, it just was not happening. 2014 will be my magical year of Finally Having A Life Again. :D - Hookuh Tinypants
If I'm welcome, I'll totally go next year! I want to meet the Foxes! - Akiva
Here is video from one section: http://friendfeed.com/phoenix... And next year, we will still be here! Meeting us on haunt nights tends to be a drive-by like Stephen said, but we love everyone to come and love to meet everyone for whatever time period we can. Coming on a night we are open that is not Halloween is usually the best night to come. It is slightly less busy, shorter... more... - Rachel Lea Fox
Sounds good! - Akiva
It looks as great as ever! - Anne Bouey
Kevin or Rachel, do you still have the singing pumpkins installed? - Stephen Mack
Stephen, yes they are still up. They are not doing nightly shows right now, but if you let me know you are coming, I'm happy to start them for you. :) - Rachel Lea Fox
Rachel, the kids and I would love to come by and see! Would tonight work? - Stephen Mack
I'll message you to see when is good. :) - Rachel Lea Fox
Rachel Lea Fox
Scares from the mausoleum section of our haunted house. - Rachel Lea Fox
Awesome. - Stephen Mack

I love how this pumpkin came out!! Pattern credit goes to http://zombiepumpkins.com/

Rachel has seriously stepped-up her pumpkin carving game. It's pretty amazing. - Kevin Fox

Peter, not yet, but for those of us building our yard haunt it is getting awful close!! Thank you Shannon! - Rachel Lea Fox

Stupid Question: Can't y'all just raise the debt ceiling without having cuts or savings measures? I mean, just raise the limit and be done with it? Seems like it's getting over implicated cause some dudes need a political reach around.
I heard something on the radio today that Reagan raised the debt ceiling like eighteen times. - Derrick
Yes. That option has been available from the beginning, and it's still available now. - John (bird whisperer)
Yes, they could. They don't want to. I can't think of a single thing Congress ever passes that is simple and sticks to one issue only. Someone is always trying to attach riders and pork, etc. - Spidra Webster
Yep. Bush Snr about 8 I think. Clinton 4, Bush Jnr 7... - Johnny from iPhone
AIUI raising the debt ceiling is always used by the minority party to score cheap political points, but this is the first time everyone's pretending it can't simply be raised without a complicated deal about everything else. - Andrew C (✔)
Not for nothing... but if my interest rates and cost of living rises cause some dudes in another country can't get over their dance battle style wank session, excuse me if I get a little frustrated - Johnny from iPhone
What pisses me off is the fact that they are just refusing to pay the bills they incurred over the past year. I read an analogy earlier this week about it being like going to Best Buy, paying for a 50 inch plasma TV with a credit card and then deciding not to pay the credit card bill. I make purchases on my card that I have regretted, but I don't have the option of just deciding not to pay the bill - Congress seems to think it does... - WebGoddess
I'd like to see the Senate pass a bill to simply raise the debt ceiling as per usual, because just maybe they could get enough votes in the House from Republicans pissed off at the Tea Party trying to subvert their party. - Kevin Fox
I think they're still mad about the budget. - Heather
What's really whack is that credit agencies are threatening a downgrade of our credit if we don't address the deficit. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
if you were being held hostage in your own home with a time bomb about to go off, you could easily go to the door and walk out IF the hostage takers simply stepped aside. But they won't, so the simple exit doesn't happen. The U.S. as a whole is currently being held hostage by the tea partiers of the Republican party. - Frank Jernigan
It's not a stupid question! Just stupid power hungry people making the problem even stupider! Like Frank said, but I like to use the word stupid to describe this stupid situation! - Rachel Lea Fox
Johnny posted this two years ago. Hm. - Amit Patel

T'S A BRAND NEW REDESIGNED SITE!! I'm loving the new design tools from SmugMug and am happy to unveil the new site! I have been redesigning and reorganizing like a mad woman and I will be continuing to try and quickly add more photos and more services that weren't available before.

So it is still a work in progress, but a very pretty work in progress! I hope you enjoy it too! http://gallery.phoenixfeather.net/ - Rachel Lea Fox

I have an honest question to ask folks: Those of you who don't have/want/like children, do you enjoy or are you okay with other peoples' children?
ABSOLUTELY! I get to sleep at night AND I don't have to pay for college. - Lisa L. Seifert
I guess I don't have children anymore, given they're out of college and high school, respectively. I LOVE babies! Which is what you'll have the year we're about to spend in Palmdale. #itsofficial - Mary B: #TeamMonique
:) Are you volunteering to babysit? - Mary Carmen
In an emergency, absolutely. I'm certainly hoping to hang out with both of you. ;-) - Mary B: #TeamMonique
definitely - Mary Carmen
That really depends. Some children are only well behaved when they aren't around their parents, for some reason. Some parents are just really annoying with how they are so inconsistent in discipline, or just plain bad (who really thinks that an empty threat of "if you don't behave we're going home" is going to be effective?). In general though, I find kids to be pretty frickin' tiring. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Let me answer as my pre-kid self: Most of my young adult life I really disliked other people's kids. I always thought I would have kids someday but I didn't like being around other people's kids at all and I saw them as a nuisance. In the couple of years leading up to having kids I started to change though, because I knew it was going to be part of my life. Now I like other people's kids if they are well behaved but if they aren't then I hate them and think the parents are obviously bad people. :-| - Brian Johns
I have always loved kids, and have no problem with other peoples' kids so long as they're not assholes. :) In the end all I have are other peoples' kids, so I just have to keep on liking 'em. <3 - Hookuh Tinypants
what the Tinypants said :) - holly #ravingfangirl
before we had kids of our own i already liked them. exceptions existed for bad/dangerous behaviour. like suddenly playing hacky sack with my testicles, for instance. bad parenting is often the cause of badly behaved children, tho, so i seldom blamed the kids initially. - Big Joe Silenced
Yes! So much. I don't have, but do want and like children. On one side, I just find infants and young kids really adorable, like cats and corgis. :) But I also love that they're human. It just blows my mind to watch my friends' kids become little people. You know? More than just cuteness, but people with intelligence and sass and principle. It's just amazing to me. - Laura
Yep fun to play with even better to return all wired up - Steve C, Team Marina from iPod
Yes. After all, I am Unca Steeben. :-) - Steven Perez from Android
What Tinypants said. I regularly work with kids and I'm often up for babysitting, too. :) If they're old enough (as in, we don't need to use strollers), I love taking them to the zoo. Okay, I just like going to the zoo, but I'm happy to share my love of it with them. I often cook and bake with my niece and nephews. - Katy S
I fit all three categories (don't have/want/like) and I am generally not ok in environments with children, can tolerate them only for a short while. - grizabella
Screaming brats over-indulged by their parents: Not so much. Similarly over-indulged kids who think it's a great idea to mash fruit at a farmer's market. Not so much. Most kids, who are being themselves and not having tantrums (and that is most kids most of the time): Sure, they're fine. And some of them are just damn adorable. - walt crawford
I don't have children, but I am undecided if that will always be the case. Yep, I like other people's children, in general. But -- this may sound obvious -- I most enjoy the children of people I like lol. That being said, I suspect I lack the patience required to spend lots of time with kids. I'm best with teenagers, especially as a teacher. - Brent Schaus
I don't plan to have kids but I love being an Aunt to my kids both by blood and choice. Good kids, not brats is important. Also some ages are easier than others. My tolerance can be tested by some ages, but over all they are fun! - Rachel Lea Fox from iPhone
As Tinypants said. I really enjoy my friends' children, and other children in general. If they're being jerks, I feel much the same way I would with adults behaving that way, though I'd be less likely to blame them, since they're still growing up. - Jennifer Dittrich from FFHound!
I like a lot of kids better then a lot of parents. Demanding, spoiled behavior gets me riled up insanely fast, but even crying children I don't mind. I prefer kids that are interact-able (making faces at babies, playing or talking with toddlers and older kids) to kids who do their own thing. - Heather
I absolutely adore my nephews and niece. - Rodfather
Brent: I never thought I would be sufficiently patient with babies/toddlers. Until my first one arrived and that changed everything. I love hanging out with my 3 y/o more than anything in the world. - Stephan Planken
In general, yes, I like other people's kids--once they're past needing diapers, anyway. I'm an auntie by choice and by temperament, though, so as much as I enjoy being around kids there's always just a wee bit more joy than sadness in returning them to their parents. - Kirsten
I am mostly ok with other people's children - I love my siblings' kids (and like other family, I also love that they're far enough away that I'm not a regular baby sitter.) Most of the kids in my family are also old enough that you can tell they're being raised well, with behavior expectations. (they all have their moments, and all kids do, but most of the time they're good kids, even... more... - ellbeecee
Being responsible for a kid 24/7 would drive me so rapidly up the wall there'd be a hole in the ceiling, but I *love* my weekly afternoon/evening with friends and their two-year-old. It helps that I'm close enough to the family that I can tell the kid off if he's being naughty, but not so close enough that I was ever expected to change nappies. :-) - Deborah Fitchett
What Laura H said upthread goes for me too. Also, I would be really sad to have a life without kids in it, even though I have no plans to have my own. - Marianne

Caltrain service halted by police activity near 22nd Street... | www.ktvu.com
"SAN FRANCISCO — Police activity near Caltrain's 22nd Street station in San Francisco has shut down Caltrain service Monday evening. Service is halted in both directions through that area, and Caltrain is advising riders to seek alternate modes of transportation. A passenger on a northbound train that is stopped in the South San Francisco area because of the incident said an announcement was made on his train that there is a hostage situation, and that a SWAT team has been called in." - Me from Bookmarklet
