The two-year old is a quick learner. If the TV set is muted and she wants to watch it, she simply cycles the power (it is not muted after power up), while uttering "I'll fix it".
That's really cute. :) - Jenny H. from Android
If you don’t own an umbrella, go to a lost and found and ask for The Black Umbrella with the Black Handle. When you are presented with a selection of black umbrellas, choose the one that looks most expensive. This is not stealing. There are more lost umbrellas than there are people in Vancouver. Everyone has lost one and it all works out.

I've heard that's worth a shot here. - Meg VMeg
I should list my source: Globe and Mail: - Stephan Planken from iPhone
I am stealing those last 2 sentences to add to my writing prompts. - Corinne L
My 5 y/o needed to draw a picture of a gorilla and a puppy and asked me for help. I blame the result on her age, not my lack of skills.
Are there any negative side effects to drinking coffee. "Drinking at least one cup of coffee a day was found to lower risks [of liver cancer]." Report:
#saturdayff This is my list of Friendfeeders I have met:
Here is a question you will all have the answer to. Often FriendFeed doesn't cooperate while liking or commenting from my phone. When I disable wifi it often will work. The only difference is that it is a different 3G connection from Telus.
I have used technology once or twice in my life but I fail to see the logic. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
That's just weird. - Stephen Mack
Happens every day. Soon the problem will solve itself. :) - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Today’s 16°C felt like summer.
It's 21 here! Totally crazy warm. - Jennifer Dittrich
It felt really warm here, too. - John (bird whisperer)
It was 35ºC here today!! - Tamara J. B.
I think it hit 26C in SF. Unacceptable. - Andrew C (✔)
I could call my FriendFeed BrenFeed this morning. :)
The kiss is a wordless articulation of desire whose object lies in the future, and somewhat to the south.

If you have toddlers under the age of forty working from home is impossible. #noise
Growing pains? :)
I understand that today there had been at least two upgrades. Now I managed to connect at last. - .mau.
At the moment it works nicely. (I am using a Nexus 7 and Chrome) - Stefano.HungBaoShi from Flucso
I'm just so grateful senape is putting so much effort into building his service. I was able to connect about a half an hour ago and I saw a couple of his update posts. Progress! - Jenny H. from Android
Maybe it was something Safari said. ;-) - John (bird whisperer)
Coul be. Blame Safari ;-) - Stefano.HungBaoShi from Flucso
FWIW: it works on Chrome+iOS but it doesn't work on Safari+iOS. So yes, blame Safari. - Andrea Tassi
too many friendfeed imports. i've limited the requests. now the server should be (a little bit) faster - senape. quello di frenfit
Nevermind, now it works on Safari too. - Andrea Tassi
Senape, I suspected that might be the case. Thank you for the feedback. And to clarify: by no means was this intended as criticism. I am happy that you are offering a new home to this community and it is obvious that you are spending a good portion of your time on this. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
thank you stephan, i never thought it was a criticism :) as i stated millions of times, is growing thanks to users that reports problems, and i will never thank you enough for your support ;) - senape. quello di frenfit
Copy FriendFeed's "our service is new and we're still working out the kinks" message and keep it forever. - Bruce Lewis
Thanks, senape. And I was thinking about that epic message, Bruce. :) - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Bruce, LOL! - .mau. from Flucso
Sophie's dentist appointment went well. This was the third trial, and finally she is old enough to see that there is nothing scary about it. What a relief.
Not a relief for the credit card. One hundred and seventy seven dollars out of pocket. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
No insurance? Josiah uses the school dental van but we're about to take Emily for the first time soon (I know, should have done it years ago!) Josh has holidays in a few weeks and we're both overdue for checkups so hopefully between the two of us we can convince Emily it's all good! - Melly
This was only partially covered by the insurance. This first visit was quite late (she's 5 years old now) but the last thing we wanted to do is force her. The dentist (and everybody there) was really cool about it and now that she has lost some of her teeth they had something to talk about. Now she has seen that it's nothing to fear so hopefully next time will be easier. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Yay! - Melly
Steven's post ( ) reminds me of a humorous recipe for cooking rice. Anyone has a link to that?
Anybody knows what I'm talking about? (I am not able to find it.) - Stephan Planken from iPhone
My favorite. So good.
Our two-year old said her sister has a big heart. She was referring to the shape of the pancake, though.
She says the cutest things without realizing it. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Oh Adobe, I still hate you.
Oh Adobe, I still hate you.
First the software updater redirects to a fucking website. - Stephan Planken
Then you need to download an installer stub. - Stephan Planken
Then I need to adapt the firewall because the installer has a different name than the last time. - Stephan Planken
Then it opens another URL in IE, even though that is not my default browser. Fuck you, Adobe. Fuck you. - Stephan Planken
(I have never used that many profanities here, it's about time!) - Stephan Planken
(Oh, and I didn't even mention the sneaky check box for that horrible "thing".) - Stephan Planken
Don't forget to unchecked the optional offer. - imabonehead from Android
Opens for me in ff and invariably makes it so I can't restore session - Christina Pikas from iPhone
I should clarify: Initially it directs to the Adobe site in FF, but once the installation completes and it points to other services it opens that in IE. - Stephan Planken
I also hate the whole "An important security update is available please update flash..." o god I just updated it yesterday, still another security issue? Goddamns Adobe, would you develop a more secure software instead of keep patching the holes every damn week. - bezdomnyj82 from Flucso
It's time that Flash is put out to pasture. - Stephan Planken
or out of its misery - bezdomnyj82 from Flucso
Why hasn't someone replaced this shit yet? (Yes, I know Microsoft tried with Silverlight, but that really isn't much better) - April Russo (FForever!)
The only site that uses thst is the corporate Outlook web interface. I uninstalled that long ago. Flash I can't do without, too many sites using it. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Adobe seems to be trying to get people to stop using Flash. - Amit Patel
I would be happy to stop using Flash if Hulu, Comedy Central and others would stop using it. - Spidra Webster
I'm not sure how companies could be enticed to drop it if they haven't already done so. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Still heavily used in the world of Facebook games. - April Russo (FForever!)
for video embedding flash is totally obsoleted by the html5 video tag and the js libraries built around it; on the other hand, for online games, animations and interactive multimedia content html5 canvas is still not enough, as far as I know there isn't any authoring tool that can fully replace flash yet. - vic
As someone that works in customer support for a company that offers video courses, I can tell you that for embedded video, HTML5 has not totally obsoleted flash. There are still a number of people using older browsers where it doesn't work well, if at all, that we still have to provide a flash option, just for them. We'd probably phase it out completely if what we were offering was for... more... - April Russo (FForever!)
yes, I mean obsoleted in terms of functionality and ease of use (also from a developer point of view). Of course support for older browsers is another issue, but I cited js libraries (like video.js) exactly because they dinamically provide an alternative flash player in case the browser doesn't support html5. - vic
So many sites that are still using it. Sophie does her kindergarten reading via Flash, for example. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Way, way, way back then... - Stephan Planken
I was wondering myself, looks like it. - Stephan Planken
Oh wow! - Aryo
Awwww ... same smile still :-) - Sepi ⌘ سپی
Nice - Winckel
:D - AJ Batac
Ha! - Stephan Planken from iPhone
It amazes me that so close to the finish line multimedia experts and travel experts are still spamming here. Desperate what they'll do next?
I'm using the term expert because this is a family friendly site. :) - Stephan Planken from iPhone
It costs them nothing, why should they stop? - .mau. from Flucso
True, they have always been annoying. Just seems so futile. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
I always thought that there would be life for friendfeed as long as there were spam. Seems not to be the case - boltz
The Google translate iOS app isn't smart enough to accept URLs, how disappointing.
So of I'm going to "have" to use the website then why have the app at all. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
I’m eating cake. Delicious chocolate cake. Only 500 calories. Per bite.
You only live once! - Spidra Webster
I don't believe. There's no picture of said cake as evidence. - imabonehead
I was going to take a picture, honestly. But my hands were full. :-) - Stephan Planken
I ate a traditional Cypriot style tahin pastry last night I bought from a local shop, it was delicious, all cinnamony, would of like more tahin tbh, but it was yummy, but doesn't beat chocolate! - Halil
It sounds delicious, Halil. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
sorry no pic either, my hands were also full as I was stuffing my face ;-) - Halil
(I promise to behave for the remainder of this evening.)
BOOOORIIIIING. (as you were, please) - Micah
Hehe :) - Stephan Planken
While we are at it: thank you Mozilla. Thank you for hiding the download link to the full version for Windows. Not everybody wants a dumb download stub (like those on expensive bandwidth that want to install on multiple machines).
</soap box> - Stephan Planken
This works: - Stephan Planken
I am proud to announce that I am a new dad. Sophie Elizabeth Planken was born 12/12 @ 2334 - 5lbs 15oz.
Gratz!!!!! She's an itty bitty thing!!! Preemie? - rowlikeagirl
Thanks! She was actually a week late. It was difficult to go home after holding her for 4 hours but after a good nap I'll head back. - Stephan Planken
Confession: I started with FriendFeed just because it was one of the most user friendly ways to let my remote family know (nicely refreshed the screen). I wasn't following a lot of folks. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
I hope her mom got a nap, too. :-) - laura x from iPhone
I'm glad I get to like this now, Stephan :) - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Me too. - MoTO Boychick Devil from Android
:-) This post (the memory) makes me happy. - Stephan Planken
However, I remember the drive home. I was so tired, leaving the hospital early in the morning. I was so incredibly tired that I am still wondering why I didn't just crash on the spare bed there. - Stephan Planken
In my mind I broke the 1.5 hr trip home up in short pieces. Leaving 16th Ave. Then try to make it to the highway. Then get past Airdrie. Then the next town. Then wondering if I should not just give up. And finally I made it home. Tanya called to make sure I made it and I optimistically told her I'd be back later that afternoon. I woke up following morning. - Stephan Planken
FIVE years ago! - Stephan Planken
These old posts bubbling up make me realize I haven't followed the lot of you early enough. Missed so many good posts! If only there were some sort of online community where we could share these. O wait...
.@AutomationDirec Again impressed with your next day international delivery. (Takes longer here from the next province!)
I have been consuming insane amounts of coffee. You would think I would have trouble sleeping. You would be wrong.
I approve of this message. - Jenny H. from Android
Who would have the most comments on FF? I just saw Kol Tregaskes with a whopping 1,181,025 comments.
I have been very active, with 11,337. :-) - Stephan Planken
I have 52,202, so not even close. - Melly
Shit. I just realized Kol is likely going to crush anything I do. Most of his comments are one-off on imported items. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
I have 44,872 (now 44,873...) and I am really talkative... - .mau.
If only there were some way to distinguish native comments from bookmarklet or automatic feeds. - That's So CAJ! from Android
That's what I thought they might be. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
I'm still ahead of him in likes. :-P - John (bird whisperer)
Certainly isn't me. I only have 14,700 comments so far (before this one). - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Yes, John is King of Likes. Not a day without a like from John. (And thank you for all your posts and likes here.) - Stephan Planken from iPhone
And Jennifer is up there too. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Definitely not me. - Amit Patel
Oh, woah, you guys are a genius I can backup specific services. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy from iPhone
You're welcome? :) - That's So CAJ!
Damn. Only 224,000 likes. - Steven Perez from Android
Jimminy, yeah soz about that. I talked a lot on FF. Though the majority of the recent comments are possible imports? - Kol Tregaskes
CAJ, yes. I think we had this discussion on FF a long time ago. Wish this was possible. I'm not really interested in the number of comments imported. - Kol Tregaskes
Steven, and I bet most of those comments are about your love of Spice Girls. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
Jimminy, backing up specific services would help me. :-) I only need to backup native stuff. Imports are just that and came from elsewhere. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
I have *clearly* been slacking all these years. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
I confess nothing, Kol. :D - Steven Perez
My neighbor is recording my wife as she feeds the horses. This guy is getting strange and dangerous.
uhhh. o_O WTH? - AHnix (Anna Haro)
That doesn't sound good. - John (bird whisperer)
I advised her to call 911. This guy is now watching her. He's been over threatening to get his gun while drunk. It's time we report this. Even if they can't do anything legally it's time they know. We've let it go on for too long. He doesn't come when I'm home because he knows I will let the dog get him. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
man sorry stephan - Steve C, Team Marina
Good, an RCMP member will be down shortly. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Good. - bentley from FFHound(roid)!
I'm surprised how some popular characters on Flickr are following me. Most of my photos are private, mainly for remote family and friends. These people have thousands of followers. Ego boosters for more likes and comments, perhaps? hasn't been loading in my phone since yesterday. Worked from my laptop last night, same internet connection.
mhh - Non sono Bob
that's just a kind of welcome page. you must add /earlyadopters to enter - senape. quello di frenfit
(ok, already said, as usual :) - Non sono Bob
Let me clarify: it does load after I clear all browser data (Safari / iOS) but then a while later it happens again. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
stephan, ios browsers show only the domain name ( if you don't put /earlyadopters, you'll never come in. - senape. quello di frenfit
Thought I loaded it from a bookmark, but I should verify, thanks for the tip. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
no prob. i'm glad you're using it :) - senape. quello di frenfit
If it turns out that that is the problem I should have my internet license revoked. #dumb - Stephan Planken from iPhone
LOL! (don't worry, you can always blame the italian!) - senape. quello di frenfit
(The bookmark in Safari was for my feed. But yeah, when I went to the /earlyadopters it worked.) - Stephan Planken from iPhone
