Here's a friendfeed downloader that worked great for me. It's by M. Can Bayrak. More here: https://plus.google.com/u...
But no version for Windows users? - Sean McBride
What is Windows? It's python so it might work on windows. - Todd Hoff
I'm bookmarking that one for later - I figure I'll try a few different things to see what works. - Jennifer Dittrich
It worked for me when nothing else did. - Todd Hoff
does it have any advantage over this one? https://github.com/claudio... - خراسانی
That one didn't work for me. I kept getting bounced from the site. Though for reasons I don't understand it seems to be variable. - Todd Hoff

I made a cute little flash story called A Very Special Frankenstein Birthday. It's available on Kindle at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Very-Sp... If you have Kindle Unlimited it should be free or I can loan it to you. Just let me know. The art was done by an artist from Poland.

To keep customers coming back, some Chinese restaurants are lacing noodles with opiates - Quartz - http://qz.com/271411...
To keep customers coming back, some Chinese restaurants are lacing noodles with opiates - Quartz
"Forget Colorado, stoners. The real frontier of narcotic edibles is in Shaanxi province, China. A restaurant owner there just confessed to police that to keep customers coming back, he had infused his noodles with 2 kilograms (4.4 pounds) of pulverized poppy buds—which can contain narcotics like morphine and codeine—that he bought in August for 600 yuan ($98). Apparently, it worked; the restaurant boss said customer numbers leapt (link in Chinese) after he started using his “special” seasoning. Chinese authorities say doses were enough to addict frequent diners, reports the South China Morning Post (paywall). Police launched an investigation only after one of the restaurant’s repeat customers tested positive for opiates in a routine urine screen. But Zhang, the shop owner, wasn’t the first Chinese restaurateur to strike upon this idea—not by a long shot. An investigative report in 2011 found that illegal poppy products are available in Shaanxi markets—with restaurant owners being the... more... - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet
"Restaurant owners all over China have long embraced this customer retention trick. Last year, two restaurants in the southern metropolis of Guangzhou were caught adding pulverized poppies to their food. The prior year, seven restaurants in Ningxia were found to be dousing their hotpot soups with morphine. A Sichuan restaurant has repeatedly been found to feature codeine as a “secret... more... - Anne Bouey
Ah, entrepreneurship... - Eivind
"The 26-year-old diner whose urine test exposed the noodle shop’s secret is still in prison for drug use—even though further police testing suggested he tested positive as a result of the poppy-laced noodles. “Whether it’s through self-inflicted drug use or unwitting food consumption, it’s still drug use,” says local police chief Ma Yubin told the Xi’an Evening News. “The law doesn’t draw a sharp distinction between the two.”" Oh, China. - Jessie
I'm both excited and appalled by this... - Hookuh Tinypants
Sounds like the police chief needs his noodles spiked. - Todd Hoff

Any Gilmore Girls fans? I'm not sure if I'll be ridiculed, but I've been kinda binge-watching.
Such a great show. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
One of my favorite shows of all time. - Todd Hoff
I started watching it this winter - I couldn't watch too much at once. The dialog is crazy fast. - Jen
I watched it last summer - I'd caught an episode here and there before that, but never very much - ellbeecee
Heather got me into it through the daily airings @ 11am on ABC Family. We started at about season 4.5 and went to the end, then caught up to where we started once they restarted from the beginning. Great show! - Chris Topher
Good. I was afraid I was the only guy to watch. So many people have told me they talk too fast but I didn't think so. - Just another Bubba
I know a lot of my Twitter friends were really excited when it was added to Netflix. I haven't watched it, so I don't know if I'd enjoy it or not. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Definitely a fan. Wish I had the DVDs so I could binge. - Spidra Webster
We don't binge--ever--but we own the whole series and will return to it one of these days/years. We don't buy series unless we (a) really like them and (b) are certain we'd want to re-watch them in the future. - walt crawford
Gilmore Girls isn't a show, it's a lifestyle. <3 - Heather
I'm a fan :) - Brent Schaus from iPhone
Tam keeps telling me to watch it, but I'm not sure I can cope with that much Lauren Graham ;-) - Heleninstitches #teamff
I can cope with that much Lauren Graham. Oh, yes. - Brent Schaus from iPhone

For those who are into data hoarding, what are people using to archive whatever Friendfeed posts are still accessible?
I've seen more mentions of this: https://github.com/claudio... - rønin
Although the non-US crowd has been bandying this about as well: http://www.softpedia.com/get... - rønin
I'm systematically copying and pasting all my posts into a word document and deleting as I go. Not the popular route, but the one of my choosing. - Jenny H. from Android
Copy, paste, delete, drink, repeat... :-) - Todd Hoff
ALL. DAY. LONG. I finished one account, but I'm only mid-2011 on the other. Super tedious, but worth it to me. - Jenny H. from Android
Ack! No, no deleting! How am I supposed to find my comments that I want to download if you're deleting them all? (she asked, selfishly and ack-fully) - bentley
I know and I feel bad about that, but I've tried with the scripts before, they didn't work, and I'm not risking losing the documentation of my life since 2008. Selfish, perhaps, but I'm out of time and options. - Jenny H. from Android
Copy/paste I understand, but why delete? - bentley
Because you can only go back 640 posts and I have many thousands of them. - Jenny H. from Android
I think Benjamin Golub pushed a change so that you can go back farther than 640 posts now. So far I've gotten to 1140 posts. - Victor Ganata
I guess I'll try re-running the script, but I assumed that message was that going back would be more robust but not that they raised the cap on how far back you could go. - Andrew C (✔)
If you manually type in friendfeed.com/$USERNAME?start=1350, it won't work and it'll just give you that same page as friendfeed.com/$USERNAME?start=660, but there's now an additional ncursor=$LONG_HEXADECIMAL_STRING field that I have no idea how to parse that allows you to go back way farther - Victor Ganata
OIC. Yeah, so a robust script would have to manually grab and parse the "older" link rather than just calculate it. - Andrew C (✔)
I can't get past start=630 and I KNOW I have posts beyond January of this year. :( - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Yeah you need the ncursor=xxx key too. - Victor Ganata
Ben's change definitely let's you go beyond start=2010 now. But as Victor mentioned, it only works with the corresponding ncursor. Seems like the only way to get that is to physically click to each page. - chrisofspades
I guess I'll just have to save the raw HTML - Victor Ganata
Could someone who knows Ben ask if the ncursor thing could be used in the FF API? - Andrew C (✔)
And if server load is an issue, which it might be, Twitter's export runs on the server. You make a request, it churns away for a bit, and then when it's done it emails you (I think?) with a link for an archive you can download. - Andrew C (✔)
https://github.com/zverok/clio goes beyond 640 posts boundary (scroll to the end of README.md for instructions in English). - courant
Trying the Ruby version now, courant. Thanks for sharing! - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
The scripts I've run do seem to get past the 640 post limit, but they end up going in infinite loops after the 10,000th post. - Victor Ganata
Victor, the Ruby version got as far back as 2013 (with only one month from 2012). That's a lot because, as we all know, I post A LOT. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
Right, so, does anyone know anyone at FF/FB to ask to adjust the API to go past 10K posts? - Andrew C (✔)

I had a 1917 Liberty Quarter, that I found in my dad's yard about 10 years ago. I don't know where it is anymore, but think it's somewhere at home. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
Grr. I used to own an 1893 Morgan dollar until my cokehead uncle stole it. I think now my oldest is probably a Mercury dime I have somewhere ('30s). - Spidra Webster
I have some pretty old pennies. Not sure if I have anything older. - John (bird whisperer)
I have something from the Holy Land at work. I think it's a widow's mite, but I'll have to ask the giver. - LB needs a break. from Android
I have an Indian head penny. Don't know what year, though. - April Russo (FForever!)
I have a Mercury dime, but it's fused with a penny, so.... - Heather
1836 capped bust dime - holly #ravingfangirl
Hopefully I still possess a silver dollar from the last half of the 1800s. - Eivind from Android

Why are white people expats when the rest of us are immigrants? - http://www.theguardian.com/global-...
Why are white people expats when the rest of us are immigrants?
In the lexicon of human migration there are still hierarchical words, created with the purpose of putting white people above everyone else. One of those remnants is the word “expat”. - Halil from Bookmarklet
expat is a term reserved exclusively for western white people going to work abroad. Africans are immigrants. Arabs are immigrants. Asians are immigrants. However, Europeans are expats because they can’t be at the same level as other ethnicities. They are superior. Immigrants is a term set aside for ‘inferior races’. - Halil
never thought about it this way before, interesting - Halil
Although expat can refer to both temporary and permanent residents, I always thought of it as temporary and immigrant as permanent. - Anne Bouey
I've wondered about this, though the first time I remember hearing the term it was used in a history lesson to describe both black and white Americans living in Paris in the early 20th century. The only times I can remember anyone contemporarily referred to as an "ex-pat" they've been white, and often have been living abroad for longer than the "immigrants" in the US on temporary work visas. - Jennifer Dittrich
It's not just about race. Actually, it is more about the status and profession of the person. A person with a higher social status and a job that requires hihger education, pays well and gives a position that is perceived to be more prestigious will be called an expat, regardless of his/her race or nationality while a simple worker will be called an immigrant. Likewise, you can well be... more... - grizabella from Android
Yeah, the difference does seem to be mostly about privilege on multiple axes. - Victor Ganata
after posting my comment above, i saw this on fb from a polish guy, which is more or less in line with what i think...and it is first hand experience: "Non-Eastern European white people.* I was an immigrant in America when teenagers holding the confederate flag egged my house and the police hung up on my father because of his accent, and I'm an immigrant here in Europe when people ask... more... - grizabella
Sure, privilege (and the lack thereof) functions on multiple dimensions and distinctions are on a spectrum rather than between discrete categories. It's never all or nothing, black or white. - Victor Ganata
I've always thought of it as a world relative to the group. If I settle elsewhere then I am an expat. To the people in the area I'm settling I'm an immigrant. - Todd Hoff
Yeah, expat is closer to emigrant, not immigrant. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
It probably varies from region to region, but my impression is that in the Philippines people from ASEAN countries and from other former colonies of European countries tend to get called immigrants while people from East Asia, Europe, or the Americas tend to get called ex-pats. It kind of seems to map along lines of privilege, particularly economic privilege and also by the perceived strength of the person's home country (and this perception can vary widely from person to person.) - Victor Ganata

Worship not whited sepulchers, it's the spirit of the law that matters. It's pi day! - Todd Hoff

Whenever N people gather to labor n/2 -1 people will actually do the work, the others will stand around and watch.

The End of Synthesis. In the Pipeline: - http://pipeline.corante.com/archive...
The End of Synthesis. In the Pipeline:
"What gets me about this current paper, though, is the concept behind it. This has the potential to take a large part of organic synthesis into the realm now occupied by peptide and nucleotide synthesis. Those two are certainly easier problems - you have one kind of bond between every subunit, and a limited number of subunits themselves. But the advent of solid-phase iterative methods to synthesize these sorts of molecules was still a huge advance. It took making such things out of the realm of every-one-a-new-individual-challenge, and into the world of "Sure, we should be able to make that. Fire up the machine." That first category, we should note, is where total synthesis of natural products has traditionally been. And proudly so. I've had a lot to say about that over the years around here, going back to 2002, but I'll summarize: I think that total synthesis was, at one time, one of the most vital and important parts of organic chemistry. But that day is past. Modern analytical... more... - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Stimulating Neurons with Light and Gold | The Scientist Magazine®
"FLICKR, STEVE JURVETSON Using a modified scorpion neurotoxin or antibodies to target gold nanoparticles to the surface of neurons, researchers have created a new way to stimulate brain cells in culture. All it takes is a little bit of light to heat the particles, which changes the capacitance of the membrane, resulting in the depolarization of the cell and the firing of an action potential. “We call it optogenetics without the genetics,” said biophysicist Francisco “Pancho” Bezanilla of the University of Chicago, “exciting cells in the nervous system without going through all the difficulty of creating a transgenic animal. . . . It’s a shortcut.”" - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

What's the longest piece of writing you've very memorized and recited publicly? (e.g. soliloquy from a play, a poem, essay, verses from a holy text, a song, etc...)
A few pages from Hamlet (Act II, Scene 2) for high school honors English. - Stephen Mack
Stephen, cool. Was you assignment specifically to memorize that bit of Hamlet? - Micah
Steve, how long did it take you to feel like you had it down pat? - Micah
The entire musical, Les Misérables [excepting the strictly male numbers]. - Jenny H.
(Sidenote: *squeee*—I looove Les Misérables) - Micah
Me too, MICHAH. Still. :) - Jenny H.
The Hamlet soliloquy. I was so nervous my voice was quavering. The teacher thought I was emoting and wanted to put me in a Shakespeare contest. I declined. - Spidra Webster
I read the book in Jr High and saw the play in Orange County (a long time ago) in that theatre with the rotating circular floor. Kelly, when did you perform it? - Micah
Paul Revere's Ride - Jessie
Steve, different but the same: forgetting my formation steps during a field performance in my HS marching band—yeah, the sweat that starts pouring out, oye. :) - Micah
Spidra I don't whether or not to say you doth protested too much. :>) - Micah
Jessie, what was the occasion for performing Paul Revere? - Micah
One or another of the French poems I recited in French class in high school. The poems weren't very long, maybe 20 lines or so. - John (bird whisperer)
John, did you take much French, or just one year? - Micah
Probably Mark Antony's speech in Julius Caesar. - Akiva
My social security number - Todd Hoff
Todd, I effectively have two—have only one memorized. - Micah
Akiva, where did you perform it? - Micah
Madison Square Garden. - Akiva
(And by that, I mean 10th grade English class.) - Akiva
Well. - Micah
I think it was 5th grade history class? - Jessie
I played Prospero in The Tempest. The guy had a bajillion lines, including one extremely long monologue. - chrisofspades
The Highwayman (http://www.potw.org/archive...). In 7th or 8th grade? - Marianne
Not sure. I did theatre for 15+ years, and memorized a whole crapton of plays and musicals, and then a lot of monologues for various theatre competitions. I'd be hard pressed to figure out which was the longest. - Hookuh Tinypants
Either the Jaberwocky or the Centepede's poems about Aunt Spiker and Aunt Sponge from James and the Giant Peach. - kendrak
Oof. Good lord, all those prayers in catechism...*shudders* between first communion and confirmation...it's no surprise I still remember every single prayer now, a full 25 years after I stopped attending church. - Hookuh Tinypants
The Lord's Prayer, probably. I can't remember having memorized and recited anything else. - Eivind
The Bells by Edgar Allen Poe. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
the opening soliloquy from Richard III, I think - Bren
Jaques' monologue from As You Like It - Kristin
I think it was a sonnet for english class. I forgot which grade. - Rodfather
Apparently I've blocked it from memory. I can recite The Beasties Boys "Paul Revere" from memory though, FWIW. - Derrick
Dozens of old ballads when I was a Folkie back in the 60's. Barbara Allen, Mary Hamilton, The Unquiet Grave, The Bonnie Earl of Murray, stuff like that. The "Quality of Mercy" speech just so I could study it. A couple more Shakespeare things for English class. Always wanted to learn the Canterbury Tales Prologue in Middle English but never got very far. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
My best man speech for my best man. Three pages written I think. Still stands as greatest in history. :) - Steve C, Team Marina
1 Corinthians chapter 13. - Steven Perez
Jkram, my parents had a paperback book of jokes & ribald poems from Playboy. Dirty pictures too. Drunken Fool was in there! Also some stuff by Shel Silverstein. I sneaked & read that book so often, I'm sure I had a lot of it memorized. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
*bump* — this was a fun list to tease out. - Micah
For school (poetry class in college): Columbus, by Ogden Nash. http://www.poemhunter.com/best-po... - bentley
For myself, most of St. Crispin's Day Speech, starting with "This day is call’d the feast of Crispian." - bentley
All of Prospero's lines from a junior high production of The Tempest. - chrisofspades
"It Couldn't Be Done" for middle school English. "The Nymph's Reply to the Shepherd" for high school English. - LB needs a break. from Android

"Freeze a couple of your water bottles or anything else you can get cold before you pack your cooler; this helps keeps the cooler cold throughout the weekend. You can even freeze all your water in place of ice altogether. Place your water bottles and other upright items in first. Don't be tempted to lie them flat, because fishing them out of the ice can get difficult. Place other items that need to stay very cool between the water bottles. Pack the ice around the water bottles until the cooler is nearly full. This should create a 'shelf' in your cooler for your more fragile items - dairy, fruits, vegetables and condiments. The more tightly packed your cooler, the better you'll retain ice. Learn to shop for your groceries to fit the cooler as perfectly as possible. Pack food in leak-proof containers. Avoid packing raw meat in the same cooler as the rest of your food. Avoid packing paper and carboard packaging." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

I'm toddhoffious on ello, but I'm not really getting ello yet. It doesn't seem to have a bookmarklet.
it still suffers from a lot of deficiencies comparing to FF. definitely has a long path ahead to become like FF - هانیبال
Yah, I find myself wanting it to work like friendfeed and then getting frustrated when it doesn't :-) - Todd Hoff
Same here. I check back periodically to see if they've tweaked any of the things that irritate me about it. When the irritation is lessened greatly, I'll stick. :) - Hookuh Tinypants
I really don't like any of my options. G+ could work, but it doesn't have a bookmarklet, which makes sharing hard. Plus the display "algorithm" means you don't see all the posts, which sucks. Twitter is way to public and is way to short form and conversations still suck on twitter. Facebook also has the we'll display what we want to display bug and it is again to public. Sigh. - Todd Hoff
There are no good alternatives to FF -- I've explored them all. - Sean McBride
G+ actually does have a bookmarklet: "https://plus.google.com/share... goes here]" is the basic sharing URL, and you can install bookmarklets via https://chrome.google.com/webstor... or similar. (See http://www.labnol.org/interne...) - Stephen Mack

Thanks Stephen, I didn't know about the share bookmarklet. Seems to work. The +1s are pretty useless IMHO. - Todd Hoff
I'm trying to figure out why G+ seems so inefficient for conversations. It just seems heavy. - Todd Hoff
For me, it's the layout - I think they expect you to track your conversations through notifications, but the notifications themselves are so bloated with other things that it makes it difficult. I prefer a timeline more like this or Twitter. - Jennifer Dittrich
I'm working on it :-) - Todd Hoff
That's definitely part of it Jennifer. I do not like the notification approach. There are always timing issues. - Todd Hoff
Whenever I try to wade into Google+, the layout pushes me away every time. It is not nearly as readable as FF. - Sean McBride
So where are you going Sean? - Todd Hoff
FYI, there are 2 other options out there: frenf.it/earlyadopters and pepyatka. They are not as mature as friendfeed.com, but could be a landing place - Brixie from Android
Todd -- until I see the emergence of a new platform that is a next generation Friendfeed, I am probably going to take a vacation from participating on social media. All of the current options turn me off -- they are badly designed. - Sean McBride
FF puts a much stronger visual focus on individual posts than Google+ -- and they appear in a single clean LIFO (last-in, first-out) stream, with no distracting clutter. The key word is "focus." If Google+ offered the option for a FF-style layout, I might bite. - Sean McBride

"Congressional Republicans are fond of accusing President Obama of overreaching and overstepping his bounds, but the letter sent to the Iranian government was a clear case of overreach." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
Treason? - Todd Hoff
The next paragraph says probably not: "As Rmuse pointed out, the letter most likely was not a crime, because it was a public letter, and not an official negotiation with a foreign country. The letter was an act of political sabotage by a group of senators who may not have legally committed treason, but who were acting with the intent of treasonously undermining the Commander In Chief." - Andrew C (✔)

"McLellan, along with Mitchell Sogin of the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, and their colleagues, gathered samples from sewage treatment plants in 71 different cities with varying obesity rates—from Steamboat Springs, Colorado, with an obesity rate of 13.5 percent to St. Joseph, Missouri, with a rate of 37.4 percent. Sure enough, bacteria such as Bacteroidaceae were found in greater abundance in the locales with the relatively high obesity rates. “If we had a city with a higher percentage of obese people, we would see a higher percentage of the kinds of bacteria associated with obesity,” McLellan told Inside Science. The correlation was even able to predict whether a city was lean or obese with 80- to 90-percent accuracy." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
