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
Oh my lord, all that cruft in the EZproxy config file.

I finally tried balut today at @JeepneyNYC. It wasn't at all like I imagined. The smoked bangus (milkfish) was yummy! Can't wait to go back.
Whoa, what? - Meg VMeg
Jeepney is a great Filipino gastropub on First and 13th. Went with Edith and ate all the things. http://www.jeepneynyc.com/ - Stephen Francoeur
That sounds amazing. - Meg VMeg
Um, wait, I just clicked the first link. - Meg VMeg
Yeah, its something I've always taken a pass on but Edith was game for it, so I had a bite. - Stephen Francoeur
Stephen, what was it like? - Meg VMeg
Tasted like chicken, not egg. - Stephen Francoeur

Kevin Smith, "Taming a Wild Country," Peer to Peer Review - http://lj.libraryjournal.com/2014...
Pull quote: “As librarians, the best use of our energy and our resources is to support the development of open educational resources of all kinds in order to make the digital environment a richer, more robust place for students and scholars. We should be what most traditional publishers are not in a position to be—guides through the digital wilderness, of course, but also the homesteaders who will build new structures for digital learning and publishing that simultaneously tame part of that wilderness and use its possibilities and potential to the fullest.” - Stephen Francoeur
Love this. love love love. - Joe
