I guess I never assumed publishers habitually fact-checked non-fiction books (how could they, in many cases?). My answer to "books, magazines or newspapers" would be "a select number of magazines, and probably a shrinking number." - Walt Crawford

Good variety! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
My last.fm account scrobbles not only what I'm listening to but also what anyone at home is listening to (could be my wife or two boys). Some weeks, the variety of the top 3 artists can be bewildering. - Stephen Francoeur

Fun reading project for the day: pore over the config file for our EZproxy server so I can clean it up.
You're weird - DJF from Android
If he's weird, then so am I: I would *love* to take an afternoon to do this. - Catherine Pellegrino
doing it: not weird; loving the idea of doing it: not very weird; describing it as fun: totally weird. - DJF
It's the editor in me that gets excited when I spot typos, mistakes, cruft, duplication, etc. Something to fix! Yay! - Stephen Francoeur
When I pore over our config file I spend large amounts of time thinking "Do I not understand this, or did the person who wrote this make a giant mistake?" And it's really even odds so then I mostly close the file and do something else. - Deborah Fitchett
