Stephen Mack
You're filling your bottle of drinking water. Do you add cubed ice, crushed ice, or no ice?

Cubed ice, always. I'm surprised people keep selecting crushed ice on the work fridge. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
crushed - Mary Carmen
Cubed. Always. - Anika
Cubed. Rarely crushed. Maybe 1 out of 20. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Crushed! Depending how crushed is crushed. I prefer maximally crushed. - Meg VMeg
None because I fill it out of the tap at home or the filling station at yoga and it's just water. - joey
For drinks in a bottle (Gatorade, water, etc.), I'll do cubed. For drinks in a cup, I'll do crushed. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE from WinForFeed
No ice. The ice isn't filtered water so it tastes gross to me. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Is the water cold or room temperature? Is it summer? - Melly
Melly, let's say the water is cool and the room is warm. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Crushed whenever possible (which is never at the moment) - Soup in a TARDIS
I'd probably just have cool water. If I was feeling hot, I might add a little crushed ice. - Melly
I don’t care about the ice. I want my WATER crushed. - Akiva
Crushed ... I'm one of those terrible ice eaters. - Shannon - GlassMistress
No dice. - NOT THE CRICKET
I don't like refrigerator ice. It always tastes off. Usually bagged ice in the freezer. - Eric - Back to the Grill
None for me, thanks. - CAJ hates pants
I prefer crushed ice or nothing. - Janet
It all depends on the size of the opening on the bottle. Cubes won't fit into everything. - April Russo
Cubes in a bottle, they melt slower. - Heather
Nice 15 year TiVo bottle you're showing off there... - Brian Johns
and "none", please. - Brian Johns
Sparky, that's the one every employee got from the Blue Moon Fifteen Party a month ago. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
i skip the ice and i refrigerate the bottle in advance. - Big Joe Silence
Cubed if it's for water in my water bottle. Crushed for everything else, including to eat all by itself. - Hookuh Tinypants
No ice. - Steven Perez from Android
Oh yeah - I forgot. I thought it was part of your gift basket. - Brian Johns
No ice. I used to drink room temp water when I lived in Vegas. - Jenny H. from Android
No ice. - Mark H
^ That's my reasoning for putting ice in my water bottle as well, except with running. Between the sun and the heat of my body, the water I carry gets disturbingly warm. The only exception is at the gym. For some reason ice-cold water isn't refreshing during a workout, so I just go room temp. But in general, ice in the water bottle (besides, the body burns more calories with ice water versus room temp :) - Hookuh Tinypants
Always cubes. I want the longer lasting cooling effect you get with the reduced surface area of cubes vs. crushed. - Ken Gidley
If you want a longer lasting cooling effect, fill the bottle partially and freeze it. A nice big block of ice in there would work better than a bunch of cubes, and since it's going in as a liquid, there is no issue about the size of the opening. ;) - April Russo
Winter adds bottle-shaped ice here. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
For water, no ice. For sugary drinks, crushed ice. - Amit Patel
no ice, nothing but coffee and water for me please - chaz2b
Cubed for endurance. Crushed for cooling efficiency. None for time efficiency. Preference doesn't matter. - Ross Miller from iPhone

Stephen Mack
Damn. Someone broke into my car between 5 and 7 at work tonight. Smashed the driver side window. Stole some random crazy stuff like headphones and toiletries -- but left my wallet and its cash alone. Uh, what? (EDIT: All fixed now, see http://friendfeed.com/lovefes...)
ffhound_image_0.png
Oh, wow, I am so sorry :( - Jennifer Dittrich
This sucks mate. - Mo Kargas
What a crapper. I'm glad they didn't take your wallet. - Anika
It could have been so much worse! Why steal my expired Zoo membership cards but leave my wallet behind? They ransacked through the glove compartment and various other compartments, saw the wallet, but didn't take a thing out of it. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
oh noes!!!! - Mary Carmen
That really sucks. As for the smalltime stuff, I've had that happen to my car before. I think it's homeless folks looking for things they find useful but so small that if they get caught it's clear they weren't after money. The odds are they won't get caught so it's worth taking the risk for them. My car was broken into and a flashlight and travel alarm clock were taken. Nothing else. - Spidra Webster
Oh geez. :-( - John (bird whisperer)
GAH! People suck. - Melly
:( - Micah
man, that sucks! Did you report it yet? - imabonehead
That is terrible. - Eric - Back to the Grill from iPhone
Oh no! :(((( So sorry, Stephen! - Tamara J. B.
Dang - Marie
Duuuude. I'm sorry. :( Also, why do you leave your wallet in your car?!?! - Lisa L. Seifert from iPhone
Damn, Stephen, that sucks thoroughly. - Akiva
Aw, Stephen, I'm sorry. - Anne Bouey
:-( - Betsy
:-( I'm sorry, Stephen. - vicster: full-bodied
Ugh, that sucks. - Kristin
Sorry to hear that Stephen. :-( - Stephan Planken
Ugh :-( - Amit Patel
Dang - Josh Haley from Android
BOOOOOO!! That sucks. Happy 15th anniversary! - Louis Gray
Do not like. :(. Where were you parked? Out by TiVo Central? Rain damage? - Ken Gidley from iPhone
:( - Eivind
Oh no! - Katy S
Sorry to hear. This happened to me once. Whoever it was didn't take my wallet that was left in prominent display, but did take the few pennies in change that were rolling around, and my sweaty gym clothes. Weird. - Uli
Ima: I did report it through our on-site security guards. Police declined to investigate in person. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Lisa: Good question with no good answer. I normally wouldn't but I didn't need it on me today, so left it there (hidden from view) because I didn't feel like carrying it around. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Ken: Yeah, boonies by TiVo Central where I normally park. Probably a bit of rain damage -- hard to tell with all the glass everywhere. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Louis: Thanks but not for a few more days. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Spidra and Uli: It is so weird. There must be a logic they're following but I cannot fathom it. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Thanks for the support and kind words, all. I feel fortunate to still have my wallet. The window can be easily replaced and nothing of great value was taken. Just inconvenient. It did make me late for a date, but she was very flexible about changing plans and helping me out. We had a good time. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Boooo. At least you're safe. It's just a drag. - Gabrielle from FFHound(roid)!
bastards :( - Jonathan Disher
:( - chaz2b
:( - Alix May
:( :( - DigitalAptech
I am so sorry Stephen. :( - Janet
That sucks. Sorry to hear. - LB's Bubba. The other 1
They didn't take your garage door opener, did they? - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Dude that sucks. =( - Yvonne from FFHound!
That's awful...I'm so sorry Stephen.... - furrworld
Sorry to hear this. :-( - YvonneM
:( that sucks - Sir Shuping is just sir
Curtis, nah, I don't have a garage or an opener. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Jerks! I'm sorry this happened to you, Stephen. I know how it feels. :( - Jenny H. from Android
Damn :((( - Iain Baker
Whut. Not cool. - Steven Perez
I'd be extra vigilant around the house. If you think they looked at your wallet at all, they might have your address. - vicster: full-bodied
Good grief! :/ - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
bogus... though now I'm hella curious what lucky lady scored a date with The Mack. - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich
Noooo! :( - Ross Miller
Argh, bad, bad :) - ҀҾѦ
That blows!! Sorry!! - Georgia
Not cool, though I'm glad your wallet was left intact. I'm intrigued as to why someone wouldn't steal cash. Spidra's insights are fascinating. - Corinne L
Vicster, good thinking and I had the same worry. Fortunately my brother-in-law is living with me and is there during the hours I'm not there, so I'm not too worried. - Stephen Mack
T-Ra: :)))) - Stephen Mack
Just got off the phone with my Farmers agent (my friend Al, a great guy and long-time family friend), who arranged for a glass company to come out today at noon to TiVo to clean out the glass and replace the window. I do have a small deductible, but he arranged a discount, so my out-of-pocket cost will be under $100 to get this taken care of. Could be worse! - Stephen Mack
Corinne and Spidra: The hard part for me to understand still is when someone causes hundreds of dollars of damage (like when they smashed Spidra's radio) but only pockets items worth $20 or less. I guess that's why New Yorkers in the '80s and '90s would leave their cars unlocked and/or post "no radio in car" signs. - Stephen Mack
I love the collective wisdom here, things I never knew nor considered. Most of our smash and grab car events are not homeless but those needing things to sell for drug money. - Janet from FFHound!
Perhaps they were looking for drugs? - Todd Hoff
ouch ,.. they must be just vandels.. if they had taken Wallet and cash.. then thats a bigger felony - Peter Dawson
They must have been high....and missed the wallet - تایغر فلاکت
What a lousy thing to happen! Sorry to hear it. - Son of Groucho
:-( - Bruce Lewis
Damn. Maybe when they realized who they were stealing from they fled in terror. - Jim: with more caffeine! from iPhone
It's true I know martial arts. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Now I'm hearing Keanu Reeves saying "I know kung fu." hee hee - Corinne L

Do you think local news casters are self-aware? If so how would they keep a straight face? - Micah
She wasn't recording until she felt threatened. - Steele Lawman
But she was recording when she walked up to the bar and the girls said they didn't want to be filmed. and she expressed that she "wasn't even on. They didn't understand it." There is no excuse for violence or threats but you can't say you're not filming when you clearly were. - Johnny
... and her solution to being harassed for possibly filming strangers in the bar with her google glasses is to *actually turn the camera on and start filming*?! Interesting. - Ross Miller

Can I search Friendfeed for posts from a specific time period? Ffhound won't let me scroll far enough
You can't search for a date range, but search can retrieve results from any time period. So, if you can remember a word or two from the post, you should probably be able to find it. You can also use the advanced search filters to make this easier - https://friendfeed.com/search... - Ross Miller
Thanks, Ross. Advanced search helped me find what I was looking for :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

Richard Sherman explains the Crabtree incident and postgame interview - SI http://mmqb.si.com/2014...
image.jpg
Total rationalization. And a fairly weak one. The sad thing is, his back story is really great. He's a guy who worked hard, who willed himself to be a great football player and then acts like a total punk whenever there's a camera around. He should just let his play do the talking. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Eh. I don't really know what else people expect from professional athletes. It's like the people who are complaining about Sherman have never watched an elite athlete (or at least someone who thinks they're an elite athlete) ever be interviewed in their entire lives. - Victor Ganata
I think it's safe to say that the Erin Andrews interview went quite a bit beyond the usual athlete post-game comments. It probably wouldn't have been as big a deal if a) it didn't happen at a moment when just about everybody was watching and b) he didn't already have a reputation as a huge trash-talker. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
I don't think that's safe to say at all, but I guess we all parse things differently. Humility is not the first thing I associate with elite athletes. But, yeah, the huge audience probably had something to do with it. However, it makes no sense to be surprised by a guy with a reputation for talking smack continuing to talk smack, though. - Victor Ganata
Now I don't watch the NFL much, so maybe they have different norms, but I just think of all the guys in NBA that the sports press has at one point or the other labeled "arrogant"—Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Kobe Bryant, etc.—and to me, it's really all the same old thing. - Victor Ganata
It's pretty much the same reaction Muhammad Ali got, I guess. - Victor Ganata
I grew up watching Muhammad Ali. Muhammad Ali was an idol of mine. Richard Sherman is no Muhammad Ali. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
I'm not saying Sherman is on par with Ali. Don't get it twisted. I'm saying the audience's reaction is similar. Practically identical, really. - Victor Ganata
Oh, how could I forget Ron Artest/Metta World Peace :D Of course, he did actually start a brawl. - Victor Ganata
All I'm saying is that this is not a new phenomenon, and I think it's silly to be treating it like it is. - Victor Ganata
I guess I'm troubled by the insinuation (maybe not by you) that thinking Sherman is a boor and a poor sport is somehow just a poorly disguised reaction to his race. It essentially inoculates him from any responsibility for his own behavior. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
There is no shortage of boors and poor sports in professional sports (or at least people who are painted by the sports media as boors and poor sports), so it just seems odd to single out any particular one, is all. - Victor Ganata
And the fact of the matter is that a lot of Sherman's critics *did* explicitly bring up race in a very ugly way, so, while you certainly can't paint everyone with a broad brush and accuse everyone who criticizes Sherman of racism, there's definitely something going on there. - Victor Ganata
Ya, I just don't know how to reconcile that. There are a lot of racists. Any person of color who is a public figure is going to be assailed by them. But I just don't buy that the existence of racism absolves every person of color of responsibility for their own actions. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Or explains a broad-based reaction to those actions. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Well, that's the main dimension of this discussion, though. Sure, he should own his actions (and I think he does) but I think it's totally ridiculous to expect an athlete to comport himself like a politician (especially when politicians tend to comport themselves more like professional athletes these days.) Like you said, the guy has a reputation for trash talking. Why should we then be surprised when he totally talks trash? - Victor Ganata
I think if you're Michael Crabtree or a Niners fan, you probably have legitimate beef. I think it's reasonable for them to hate Sherman. But for everyone else? Why is it such a BFD? - Victor Ganata
It's not a BFD. Except for a few hardcore people, it was just a passing "Wow, what a douche" then moved on and watched Sherlock. I also think part of the issue that keeps this going is the idea that every person saying "wow, what a douche" is doing so from a place of racism. Myself, I thought "Wow, what an American douche" and moved on... in so much that's how the stereotype for ALL... more... - Johnny from iPhone
There are definitely people coming from an explicitly racist place, though. Otherwise, I agree, this kind of douchiness just doesn't seem like it's beyond the pale for sports. It definitely makes for great TV. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Beyond the pale for American sports? No. This type of thing doesn't really happen in sports like football (soccer), rugby league, rugby union, AFL, golf, cricket, tennis, winter sports (other than hockey) etc. ;) - Johnny from iPhone
Ping pong trash talk http://www.youtube.com/watch... - Micah
I didn't really care about the interview. It was getting in the face of Crabtree and making the chocking sign to Kaepernick the moment the game was decided. The game was over right then and he decided to be a classless punk and put the attention toward himself. Who does that? I don't get all these comparisons to Ali and boxers too. All the trash talk happens before and during the fight. Once the fight is over, almost all the time there's respect given. - Rodfather
I dunno, proclaiming yourself "the greatest" doesn't necessarily have an expiration date, you know :D - Victor Ganata
I'm of the same line of thinking as Johnny. I just had a "huh, that was just douchey" reaction and moved on. I would have the same reaction to anyone talking trash in a post-game interview because I just think it exhibits poor sportsmanship and sets a bad example for kids who look up to pro athletes as idols. I would have felt the same way had it been one of my own players in that same... more... - Hookuh Tinypants
It's one thing to say you're the best. Rickey Henderson did it, but he wasn't a dick about it. He didn't disrespect other players or the game. - Rodfather
Back in the 1980s, lots of people thought otherwise. For example: http://articles.chicagotribune.com/1989-10... - John (bird whisperer)
To me it is telling that his immediate reaction wasn't sharing excitement or celebrating with his team for clinching a trip to the Superbowl, but rather the need to taunt the loosing team. It completely lacks class and sportsmanship. The best rivalries bring intensity on the field and respect off the field, saying you're better or the best is fine as long as you acknowledge the other... more... - Ross Miller
Let's just say this is hardly the worst display of bad sportsmanship I've ever seen watching sports. I just think it's a disproportionate response. You'd think he murdered or raped people or abused animals or something. - Victor Ganata
And, yeah, I'm saying arrogance and even bad sportsmanship are normal in pro sports. I'm not saying it's necessarily right, but, let's face it, people lap this crap up. - Victor Ganata
I think there's a disproportionate response from people assuming that so many people think he's awful. There was a burst response on Sunday from fans, and then it's mostly just been the media playing it up over and over. Bottom line: game is over, a lot of trash has been talked, and there are still a huge pile of sore vaginas as a result. People need to move on. It's been two days already. Time to start pretending that most of the country gives a crap about either of the teams heading to the Super Bowl. - Hookuh Tinypants
And honestly, the NFL have a good reason to keep this going. Racism or not, the only thing people love more than a superstar is a person who thinks they're a superstar failing/getting the smugness knocked out of them. I can tell you that a decent amount of people will tune in (or at least take an interest in the result) just to see that possibility. - Johnny
I guess that's what's special about football. He's a corner. Most likely he won't get the shit knocked out of him. It would actually be awesome if the kicker talked a gang of shit. If there was any retribution, it would result in a huge penalty. In baseball it's easy. You just throw a fastball at his head the next time he's at the plate. - Rodfather

Chinese Zillionaire Who Wants To Buy NY Times Has Awesome Business Card: Gothamist
"Kazillionaire Chen Guangbiao, one of the top 400 richest people in China, recently announced his intentions to buy the NY Times with his gajillions of moneys. While the Times thus far has respectfully declined his requests for a meeting to discuss such an investment of gobagillions, if they got a better look at his business card, they might change their minds. Because clearly anyone who is a demolition expert, a moral leader, and the "most influential person of China" deserves a shot at the top of the masthead." - rönin from Bookmarklet

Grr. Windows 8.1 keeps going OoM. I guess I just need to reboot more often or something.
Are you running Microsoft Office 2013? - Eric - Back to the Grill
Nope. Just Chrome and WoW, usually :D But I do tend to go for long periods of time between reboots. I usually just let it sleep instead of shutting down. - Victor Ganata
That should be fine. I asked because I have a problem with an offline cache utility in Office eating up memory. - Eric - Back to the Grill
Sounds like your machine could use some additional spirit. Maybe replace some gems or reforge? - Ross Miller
The weird thing is that I don't really see any background processes chewing up huge amounts of memory or anything in the Task Manager. But after a few days, WoW will just start crashing out randomly due to being OoM and Chrome will start choking too. After a reboot, everything seems fine again. - Victor Ganata
You could try tracking it down using Process Explorer. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us... - Eric - Back to the Grill

Compulsory bicycle helmets in New Zealand - http://www.cycle-helmets.com/zealand...
Compulsory bicycle helmets in New Zealand
"There is no evidence that mandatory helmets reduced cyclist injuries/hospital admissions relative to overall road safety trends, despite the law causing a 51% reduction in public cycling participation and an average 90% of remaining cyclists wearing helmets." - Ross Miller from Bookmarklet
Interesting study. I didn't realize helmets were that large of a barrier to biking for some people. I don't feel like I would bike more if a helmet weren't required, but apparently a decent number of would be bikers decide not to bike at all if a helmet is required. It was also interesting to see how the requirement to wear a helmet is working against city bike share programs in NZ. - Ross Miller
Yeah, it's pretty ridiculous. Some people feel like hat hair is more devastating to them than a major head injury. @@ - Spidra Webster
I certainly don't bike because of the helmets. I'm not carrying around a helmet everywhere I go, so I skip the bike renting facilities, and either walk or drive instead. - Amit Patel
That's strange. Seems like the big barrier to cycling is getting a bike, and if you're already having to acquire that, having to also get a helmet shouldn't pose much additional discouragement. I think there may be other reasons why bike usage has gone down (and the page points out that the obesity rate in NZ goes up at the same time). But that's separate from the question of whether or not bike helmets prevent injuries. I guess the data shows helmets increase injury. That seems very strange to me. - Stephen Mack
So, as a novice biker, should I wear a helmet or not? I feel safer when I wear it, but I guess that's the problem. By feeling safer, I unconsciously take more risks. - Stephen Mack
Helmets don't necessarily prevent injury, but they do seem to decrease the severity of the injury. http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr... I imagine it's like seat belts. They probably don't do much to decrease the incidence of car crashes, but they do a lot to keep people from being killed. - Victor Ganata
Stephen, I think you should wear a helmet. When I cycle I basically believe that everyone is out to get me and that I have to be the one to make sure I'm safe. I don't think wearing a helmet makes me think I'm at all safe, conscious or unconscious, and I actively try to ensure that I protect myself. - Ken Gidley from iPhone
Wear it, Stephen. It probably won't help you if a car hits you (although sometimes it does....depends on the speed/type of crash) but it's perfectly possible to have accidents all by yourself on the bike. A bee flew into my helmet and while freaking out, I jacknifed into my own under-seat steered recumbent frame and fell to the ground. My head hit the ground but I was able to ride away... more... - Spidra Webster
Related: Bike helmets and safety: a case study in difficult epidemiology - Boing Boing http://boingboing.net/2013... - Victor Ganata
Yeah, I'm pretty sure a helmet saved my sister's life after she got hit by a car going probably around 35 mph. She lost consciousness and had to be transported by ambulance, but mostly she just had a lot of bruises and scrapes and no severe head injury. The helmet got obliterated, though. Imagining that amount of force to an unhelmeted head gives me the heebie-jeebies. - Victor Ganata
Even if the number of injuries didn't change or even increased, the drop in percentage of fatal accidents still seems to support the contention that it might be a good idea to wear a helmet. About 90% of fatal bicycle accidents are due to head injuries in the U.S. I wonder if NZ's numbers are substantially different? - Victor Ganata
I wish I could find the PSA, but there was a PSA done by a British pro cyclist who had been going from coast to coast in the US. A pickup truck buzzed him and he was hit in the head at a high speed by the rear-view mirror. He sustained a head injury that he had to do a lot of rehab to overcome but he is adamant that he wouldn't even be alive had he not been wearing a helmet. A lot of anti-helmet cyclists say a helmet does no good in a crash with a car but they're being too absolutist about it. - Spidra Webster
I can't help but be morbid and wonder if the reason why the increase in number of hospital discharges isn't almost entirely because of the decrease in number of transfers to the morgue. - Victor Ganata
If people won't bike cause they HAVE to wear a simple piece of equipment that helps to protect them, then I'm glad they don't ride anymore. Says a lot about the attitude of the person. - Johnny from iPhone
Someone found the guy for me. Unfortunately, while a helmet saved his life, it's not an entirely happy story. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news... Still, he advocates that people wear their helmets. http://www.youtube.com/watch... - Spidra Webster

I think it would serve Time right if Miley Cyrus ended up getting the most votes for Person of the Year. #trolling #trolling #trolling
This should happen. Because twerking. - Ross Miller
Kanye West would win against Miley lmao - SophiaAnne88
Maybe, but K. West wasn't a finalist :D http://poy.time.com/2013... - Victor Ganata
There probably aren't many lists that would have Miley Cyrus, Pope Francis, and Bashar Assad on them. - John (bird whisperer)
#synergy Miley, Ted Cruz, Snowden, The Pope #wow - WarLord
I'd have to quit life if Miley's non twerking ass was POY. - Derrick
I wish Time would publish the vote totals just so we could see how close the spawn of Billy Ray got to beating the Pope. :D - Victor Ganata

I don't get this. How is it a war on Christmas? Not everyone celebrates Christmas. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
It's funny because Fox has proclaimed there is a "War on Christmas" for the last few years knocking anyone for saying Happy Holidays... then they go and have a Holiday Party, not a Christmas Party. - Ross Miller
Ah, that explains it! Haha!! I'm never on the up-and-up on what they're doing. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

Any consideration for those that aren't Christian/Catholic and Fox News is the first to declare a War... - Chris Topher
Just to quibble: Catholics *are* Christian. - Spidra Webster
You are right Spidra. Catholicism does fall under the Christian umbrella (Catholics are Christians but Christians are not Catholic type deal) I broke them apart because I commonly see them separated in context due to the differences in practice/certain beliefs. - Chris Topher

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.

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 Silence
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
Bump. - NOT THE CRICKET
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
I think Sanjeev is most eligible for a FF Rent Party of sorts. More of a FF Thank You party. - Janet
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. So, of the 12 official FriendFeed employees: Currently, 3 of 12 are still at Facebook (Ben G., Sanjeev S., and Tudor B), and 9 of 12 have departed from Facebook (Ana Y., Ben D., Casey M., Bret T., Dan H., Gary B., Jim N., Kevin F., and Paul B.). - Stephen Mack
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

Sad day in the purple house aquarium. Frog 2 affectioinately known as Frog 2 passed away overnight. He was a rescue frog (from the clutches of the not quite ready for pets nieces). He spent 4 years with us and will be remembered fondly by those left behind. Frog 1 (aka fatty), Snakey the eel, and 15 random fishies.
In his honor or more likely because he was poisonous or tasted like frog legs Snakey refrained from eating him post death as is the norm in aquarium passings in our household. - Steve C
Sounds like a cool aquarium! - Ross Miller

Pizza Hut -> The Hut, and Radio Shack -> The Shack. What's next?
The Facebook... oh wait... - Ross Miller
Olive Garden -> The Garden? Taco Bell -> The Bell? - Kevin Fox
Ross: Competing with The Google? - Kevin Fox
The Oval Office -> The Office; The West Wing -> The Wing; Air Force One -> The One - Mitch
+1 to "The Bell". Ma Bell doesn't seem to want that name still anyhow. - Alex Power
Happi House -> The House, Costco -> The Co, Pottery Barn -> The Barn, Foot Locker -> The Locker, Good Guys -> The Guys, Best Buy -> The Buy, Burger King -> The King, Arby's -> The Bee's Knees - Stephen Mack
McDonalds -> The Don - Spidra Webster
Yahoo -> "The Hoo" - Alex Power
It's a fight to see which one will be "The Barn". Pottery Barn or Dress Barn.... - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
FFundercats -> The FFats? - Josh Haley
Friendfeed -> The Friend - Roberto Bonini from iPhone
I think they should have gone with "Teh Shack" - George S.
In and Out -> The In (or) The Out - Adam Kazwell
Back in Hawaii, we used the same name for everything: pretty much any person, place or thing (nouns). The term? 'DA KINE' - Morgan
MySpace --> The Space // LinkedIn --> The Linked // Apple --> The Mac // Microsoft --> The Soft - Louis Gray
Youtube ----> The Tube? - Molly Song ;)
Facebook = The FACE! // Google = The Goog // Gamestop = The Stop // Walmart = The Wall // K-mart = The K! // White Castle = The Castle - ЯIИGҜIИG
Actually they should have went with "PartsShack". It's still the main reason why most people go specifically to their stores, for miscellaneous electronic extras you need fast. - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
I'm sure Taco Bell would fight Ma Bell for The Bell - Ian Betteridge
Albertson's Safeways, Target, Macy's, Home Depot--> "The store" // Facebook, Google, Yahoo, Ebay, MySpace --> "The Internet" - Roger N

It reminds me of how I used to like taking video on 8mm tape. Well, except for the whole 6 sec limitation. Record, pause, record, pause, record, done. - Rodfather
HE WONT STOP WATCHING VINE COMPILATIONS! - Heather
