I have tomorrow off and I even remembered to turn off the alarm.
*\o/* - Spidra Webster
But there's always "wake up, let's play the Wii!". :-) - Stephan Planken from iPhone
WII TIME! - Eivind
It's six and my biological clock says it's time to get up. Perhaps I can awake Sophie and ask of she wants to play the Wii? :) - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Barry: jealous of the Wii or the day off? (This is my second day off this year, it's been crazy busy at work.) - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Of the day off. Even my days off have been full, lately. - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte

Up. GetErDone day is underway, the first load of laundry is in, dishwasher running and general clutter clean up is underway.
Front porch swept, spiders eradicated, ant hill encouraged to move, front light fixtures cleaned and cinder blocks that have been sitting in the driveway for month as as a UFO moved to the side of the house. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Curious how you encourage an ant hill. :) - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Shop vac :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Master bath somewhere between girl clean and guest clean, second load of laundry in, and first load of laundry folded and hung. - Shannon - GlassMistress

Beverly takes me to the dr today. http://t.co/yFDVN5VKJx
Her communication issues are tough. She has difficulty in constructing sentences. She's unable to email, or text, or use written communication. When people email her I have the challenge of replying for her, When people call her I have to explain she wants to talk, but will get stuck. She most likely will need full time care soon. New chemo drug tomorrow. I'm used to this. we are still doing well, I'll use FMLA if it comes to that. I can work some at home, people will be staying with her, we have a great support group with family friends and our church. Glioblastoma multiforme is called the monster. I am on many facebook groups. I see how it can destroy the caregivers. there is no cure because it is not one cancer. well, thats all I have. im doing ok. - Mike Nencetti
Holding her and you in prayer. - Jim: with more caffeine!
{{{Mike and Beverly}}} I'm glad you have a support system. - Anika
Thinking of you both and sending good thoughts. - Galadriel C.

Sorry, Mike. I can only imagine how difficult this is. - Stephan Planken

Since Logan won't be going to the 1st day of school tomorrow, I'm thinking of going without him to meet the teacher and see the classroom. Would that be weird?
Not at all. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Sounds like a good idea. - Jenny H. from Android
I've opted not to go. As much as I'd like to be there for the first day excitement, I don't want to take away from the other kids' experience. - Yvonne from FFHound!

Sarah is a real farm girl. Tinkling in the grass is quicker than going to the house and asking for help.

Police in Ferguson Try to Shut Down Don Lemon's Live Broadcast - Gawker http://gawker.com/ferguso...
This kind of demolishes Don Lemon's own talking points, doesn't it? - Victor Ganata
Every time Ferguson is in the news I think this can't possibly get worse. I am wrong every time. Are we still talking about the US, just south of Canada? - Stephan Planken from iPhone

This one of them nights where you just don't sleep. 2am, watching drunk neighbors straggle home.
No drunk neighbors to watch here but been awake since 1am anyway. It'll be a long Sunday. - Stephan Planken from iPhone

Made my travel plans to visit mom and my grandma ... learned this morning that my Grandmother passed yesterday evening. This photo is five years old, not quite the last time I saw her, but close. I'm sorry I missed you Grammy Lynn, be at peace.

So very sorry for your loss. - Janet from FFHound!
I'm so sorry, Shannon. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Much love xoxox - Melly
Thanks all. It was a surprise but not unexpected. It is unlikely she's have recognized me if I had visited earlier - good days and bad, ya know. She was mortified to stick her tongue out in that photo, but she did it, and we giggled like little girls :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
So sorry for your loss. *hugs* - Tamara J. B.

I don’t think that waking up more exhausted than when I went to bed is what sleep is about.
And now I feel bad. When I came home just now Sophie asked me enthusiastically if I could sleep in her tent with her tonight. I really want to. My body screams no. - Stephan Planken from iPhone

She will turn two soon. You should have seen her face, so happy! At the desk I heard myself being referred to as "a very regular guest". It made me realize I'm doing it wrong; I'm away from home too much. Time to finish this project! - Stephan Planken from iPhone

Another day, another hail storm. #hellberta
You know, we were so lucky. Less than half a mile north of us the hail came down pretty hard. (No damage here, thankfully.) - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Yup. Pics in my latest post. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Yeah, seen many on twitter. Any damage in your area? - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Well, our new vinyl siding installed a few months ago (needed because of the last hail storm) fared pretty well - only one smallish hole. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Good. I know how it feels seeing your property damaged again. It's been hailing here on and off but no damage. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Ah, that's good. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!

Imma just admit it: If I changed careers I'd miss coding, to be honest. Just the coding tho. 😄
Sure. But something else would fill that void. Change is good. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
You can always contribute code to the open source community. Just pick a project :) - imabonehead
And this is why I still have this one small client that doesn't send me all that much work and doesn't pay as well as my other client does. When she does send me work, it usually involves some coding. Bigger client pays more and sends me a steady diet of customer support issues and learning paths to write for people wanting to learn web design & development, and nothing that involves me... more... - April Russo

Mr 3's attempts to be taken seriously in his grumpy mood are thwarted when he mixes up the words "kitchen" and "chicken." For example: "Go away! Go to the chicken!"
And you trying to suppress a smile just makes him grumpier. :) - Stephan Planken from iPhone
There used to be a Chinese restaurant near me, where the woman behind the counter once described a soup to me as containing "kitchen, poke, and vechie balls". It became my favorite soup. - April Russo

Looking for a cooling solution for my laptop running hot in this heat. The run of the mill cooling pads for underneath with those tiny USB powered fans isn't cutting it for me (tried a bunch of them). I even have a larger external fan aimed at it.
peltier devices paired with the fans? make sure the hot side is away from the case. (you already know this, but i'm one of those ppl who feel compelled...sorry.) - Big Joe Silence
I have been thinking about the same, just fans will not work. I just opened my laptop (easy, this thing is made to be disassembled), there is hardly any dust in the fan and cooling ribs. I will also remove my PCI cards and DVD drive. - Stephan Planken
What kind of computer? - Eric
Barring anything weird, if you want max air cooling, take a look at the Cooler Master NotePal X3 - Eric
It's for my Dell E6510. The Cooler Master is basically "just" another fan (although a larger one). I am leaning towards thermoelectric cooling, just haven't found anything "turn key" yet. Perhaps I should just bring a large portable A/C with me. :) - Stephan Planken
I haven't seen anything like that for the consumer. How would you power it and stay portable? - Eric
I guess the question may be why is your laptop so hot? Has it always been like that? I've got a couple of these at work and the models with an i7 run pretty warm. - Eric
Reason is that the ambient temperature sometimes exceeds 30°C, plus when I'm using a PCMCIA card it just adds to the heat. (This an i7 as well.) - Stephan Planken from iPhone

iOS 7 auto brightness: manually turn brightness down; 30 seconds later it's back up. Turn it down, back up, it never learns.
yeah :( - Amit Patel
Ever since I had to turn up the brightness manually because of the sun light it's been either significantly too dark or too bright. Wonder if there's a way to reset its behavior. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
The only way I could get it to work for me was to turn off Auto Brightness, adjust the manual setting, and then turn it back on. That seemed to hold for me, but who knows. - Jennifer Dittrich
Ha, thanks, I just tried that. :-) I came across an older post that suggested turning auto brightness off in low light conditions, sliding the slider all the way to the left (or close to), then enabling auto brightness again. See if that holds up! - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Seems to be working a lot better! - Stephan Planken from iPhone

Leaning tower of cake. I am so, so bummed about it even though some of it was out of my control (too damn hot in the venue, table / floor sloped to the wall, and quite frankly it was a poor idea). But here it is, and it's done and I think I'm retiring from making wedding cakes for friends ... End rant.

It looks great to me! - Heleninstitches
Too early to be drinking, Helen! Kidding, you are too kind, and I thank you. It was borderline disaster and I'd like to say I'm over it, but clearly I'm not... - Shannon - GlassMistress
I think it looks fantastic! - Anne Bouey
The temperature and the floor were out of your control, don't beat yourself up over it. I think the cake looks great! - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Take the picture from the "peacock" side, problem disappears. Also, slice and eat the cake. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
^^ was hoping for that but damned if they didn't put the cake in front of a big ass mirror! Hah! I'd say I couldn't catch a break but it didn't fall over so there's that :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Mmm, looks great. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Honestly, it looks really good. You could even argue that any slight lean adds to the peacock effect. Did rhe bride like it? - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Honestly I have no clue if the bride was happy or not. Part of the cake's problem was it was a poor concept. I did exactly as she asked knowing full well it was a bad plan. There are six layers of cake in rainbow colors in each tier. It is crazy heavy from all the frosting. I'm suspicious that the lean is due to one of the wooden dowels inside either broke or forced its way through the... more... - Shannon - GlassMistress
If someone made my wedding cake for me and it like looked one tenth as awesome as that one, I'd be happy, proud of my talented friend and very grateful. Its beautiful. - Mary Carmen
Looks lovely and I'm sure it tasted delicious!! - Sepi ⌘ سپی
What! It looks amazing! You did really well. And take it up as a learning experience - you'll get even better over time! I would be delighted to have this at my wedding. It's really lovely. You done good. - Miriella
I can tell you exactly what the problem was - when you make tiered cakes, you use plastic cake plates under each tier, not cardboard. The cardboard is for single tier only and is not meant to hold weight or pressure from your dowels. The plates have post holes that your dowels go into to keep them from slipping as well. There are also specific dowels you will want to use (not sure if... more... - Hookuh Tinypants
Yes to everything you said. I've used wooden dowels and cardboard on the 30 or so cakes I've done over the years with no problem. Guess there had to be a first, huh? I only do one to three cakes a year so I dont get much practice and it is a practice kind of thing. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I use cardboard and dowels, too, without a problem. However, when you stack a cake 3 tiers and over, I've learned it's necessary to put a long center dowel through the entire cake, boards included. Poke a hole in each separator board, then sharpen the dowel and hammer it down through the entire cake so that it sits in the middle of every tier. Some people use food grade PVC pipe as the... more... - Trish R
Trish. Its there ... even had to go to Home Depot to get it. I wasnt there for the 'autopsy' so I dont know where it failed, just guessing it has to be with the supports somewhere since the tiers were level when I started out. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I bet the supports shifted as the cake got softer when the room warmed up. Cake can come apart between the dowels and nothing prevents that from happening. - Trish R
Considered that - and leaning that direction myself, pun intended - hah! The extra layers and icing made for one heavy cake and I'm figuring I just didnt account for that weight when I assembled. The plastic rods would have been better and I might have avoided the whole thing. Hindsight ;-) - Shannon - GlassMistress

The Insidiousness of Facebook Messenger's Mobile App Terms of Service http://huff.to/1cgdsq1 via @HuffPostTech
My guess: most people won't care. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
I'm shocked this hasn't exploded everywhere online. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
I think a lot of it was overblown and I mostly agree with the first comment (by stonelaughterRL: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/social... ) - Andrew C (✔)
It's kind of weird how this HuffPo post is almost eight months old but it's only now making the rounds over social media. - Victor Ganata
Because now FB is pretty much forcing you to use this app by removing chat from the main app. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Yep. It's pretty much pushing me off of that platform entirely. I refuse to give them any of that control, and you can't use messages on your mobile device easily without that. - Jennifer Dittrich
Wouldn't you need to give the FB app these permissions to use chat anyway? - Victor Ganata
Aren't those generic disclaimers written by Google to speak in general about app functionality? That doesn't look like a TOS at all. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Victor, I don't see why FB needs 3/4 of that stuff to send basic FB messages. Maybe not even a 1/4 of that. They want access to a bunch of extra services that aren't required for the core functionality. - Jennifer Dittrich
Sure, granting the FB Messenger app some of those permissions could probably lead to some bad outcomes especially in the setting of an exploit, but I guess what I'm wondering is if those list of permissions is any different from the main FB app? - Victor Ganata
Having never used Android for any considerable amount of time, I never realized that there aren't granular controls for all those permissions. I'd definitely feel uncomfortable giving FB carte blanche like that. Although from Zulema's post, it seems like the main FB app is even worse! - Victor Ganata
Thanks Zulema! - Amit Patel
