Vegetable or... scary bug? http://ow.ly/i/7B9KY
or scarier sentient vegetable? - bentley
It definitely looks capable of going after you. :-) We had fun with it, pretending it was crawling across the table, stealing food. - Stephan from iPhone
This morning is best expressed in gallons, not cups, of coffee.
UB40 - Love Songs - I'll be your baby tonight

(Just because I heard that love is in the air somewhere over the Nevada desert.) - Stephan
:) - Jenny H. from Android
The theme song from Frozen would be a better choice nowadays. :-) - Stephan from iPhone
If I (finally) get to run my own country, I will ask @reddite to write the national anthem.
Oh nooooo ... Shivering by looking at picture!! :-) - Sepi ⌘ سپی from iPhone
Commencing Operation Snow Fence.
Last winter I dug the same path out over 60 times. I'm not going to do that again. Creating a substantial snow barrier. - Stephan from iPhone
Operation completed. I was going to say "bring it on" but eh... never mind. - Stephan from iPhone
Berlin Wall: Before and after http://www.cbc.ca/m...
Meanwhile in rural Canada I renewed my driver's license in 8 minutes, including walking back to my vehicle to retrieve proof of insurance.
The bane of the US folk. - Janet
Proof of insurance to renew a drivers license? You mean you have to actually own a vehicle to have a license there? - April Russo
even drivers without vehicles have to carry proof of liability coverage. the driver is insured, not the car. car coverage is called "collision", IIRC. - Big Joe Silence
I suspect the key word is "rural" in that statement. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
^ Yup - Stephan from iPhone
Uh, I did mine over the internet in about 3 minutes. - Glen Campbell
I actually renewed mine this past Friday in ~30 minutes which was pretty shocking. Also no wait for car inspection. Even more surprising because we used to have 3-4 DMVs in our county but they closed all of them and opened up a new one farther away. At least it's not a drab, lifeless building anymore. I had to go in for a new photo ID otherwise as Glen mentioned normally we can just renew online. - rönin
They always take a new photo, I believe. Other than that is a matter of checking the insurance policy number and the financial transaction. - Stephan from iPhone

Citizenfour is playing today at an Atlanta art theater. Thanks to the reminder I looked it up. I want to see this film while it is still here. - Eric Logan from FFHound!
This is a book about Snowden, the snow man. :) However, I'd love to see the film. - Stephan from iPhone

I better start planning on how to use up the remaining 20 holidays for this year.
My Drupal database increased by 300%. I updated a few hours after 7.32 came out but I'm suspicious.
More logging? - Todd Hoff
I am aware of the vulnerability. It is just the accesslog table that grew considerably. Apart from that, all is OK, we're good. - Stephan
Wife: "Sarah, Daddy's home!" Sarah, watching cartoons: "Too busy."
Have your people call her people. - Spidra Webster
I probably am her people. :-) - Stephan
I received email from the FBI's Anti-Terrorist and Cyber Crime Division. They just want some credit card details. We could argue about minor details like the 62 typos but why I know that this is a scam? The real FBI already knows all about my banking.
:) - Alistair
I noticed that the company chose to block Delicious. Apart from the obvious fact that I now don't have access to my bookmarks, how much time do they suspect employees spend on there? (I bet that 90% doesn't even know what it is.) Probably some software setting to block anything "social".
It might be in response to Google listing the old delicious url as a hazardous site. - John (bird whisperer)
Good point. I just looked that up, wasn't aware that the old dotted URL was a problem. - Stephan from iPhone
And... It started to snow. It was too good to be true (six weeks since the last time). #hellberta http://ow.ly/i/7m1hn

Following your weather updates almost makes me feel good about local conditions. - Eivind
It was 34C here today, can we meet in the middle? - Melly Claus #anticaper
Ha, we should work on making that happen, Melly. Mother Nature was nice enough to give us advanced warning of the weather to come and I'm still not ready preparing for winter. - Stephan from iPhone

Interesting read about Google's very cosy relationship with Washington. And the world still flocks to their services. - Stephan from iPhone
Since iOS 8 Safari has been locking up regularly.
I was going to say that I hadn't noticed, and then the damned app hung as I was typing! - Eric - ill subliminal from iPhone
The new release that came out on Wednesday temporarily bricked my friend's iPhone (it told her she had to connect to iTunes on her computer - we were in Portland, and her computer was in Pennsylvania). As a result, I've been hesitant to install the latest update. Regarding Safari on iOS 8, I so rarely use Safari (I use Chrome all the time), that I haven't really noticed. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
8.1 solves several issues for me (apps auto rotating) but this happens all the time, while typing. I use Chrome for now. - Stephan from iPhone
One less burden

Right on :) - Brent Schaus
Congrats! - Stephen Mack

Now we actually own one of our vehicles. :) - Stephan from iPhone
Sophie woke up seven times screaming but only remembers waking up once. She looks well-rested. Unlike her dad.
our youngest does that sometimes. she's also a morning person. - Big Joe Silence
Not sure if she had a bad dream, she doesn't remember. - Stephan from iPhone

Ah, with iOS 8.1 my phone finally decided to sync again over wifi.

Sometimes it feels like the outsourced IT folks get paid by the number of follow up questions asked. Actually reading emails must not pay nearly as well.
This contrasts with our offshore team who ask no questions ever, not even amongst themselves according to some of our staff who've paid a visit; they sit in absolute silence, doing the work they're paid poorly for, and doing it poorly too. So poorly that it drives the rest of us insane and leads to a lot of instructions to do things again but the bosses know best and they know they can... more... - Mark H
Better to ask then not ask. - Me
This company goes through a lot of people so you are always dealing with inexperienced people. I let this issue simmer on purpose; I have been unable to connect to one of our remote systems for two weeks. - Stephan from iPhone
iOS 8 keyboard suggestions were getting more confusing by the day. After a dictionary reset we are now back to regular silly suggestions.
My iPad - still on iOS 7 for now - is getting out of control. It'll apply stupid and wrong grammar autocorrects to words _two words ago_, when my attention's moved on to the current word. - Andrew C (✔)
Does iOS 8 allow direct editing of the custom dictionary? Android has for a long time and I was really surprised that iOS 6 and 7 didn't. - Andrew C (✔)
Well, previous versions did allow a complete reset too. Sorry, I should have been more precise: does it allow a surgical, entry-by-entry editing of the custom dictionary? - Andrew C (✔)
Andrew: no, you don't have access to the dictionary. Just a reset option. I wish you could edit it. - Stephan from iPhone
