Happy anniversary :-) - Marina's Godmother :-) from Android
Why is it called that? - Joe
Because it's the term used for the return of the date on which something significant happened. Like a birthday. Which, technically, is also an anniversary. Guess it has something to do with "anno", the year. :-P Also, thanks, Helen! - Uli from Android
No silly. The foggy river valley! - Joe

SaturdayFF#: I built my first ever software package for deployment yesterday. It took me a day and a half to work out the scripting but I got it going. I still have some tweaks to do but its working and I'm proud of it. I feel all Desktop Engineeringy.
I only asked for help once. I think I'm getting the hang of this new job. - DB, Lil LB's Dad from Android
Nice! What kind of package manager did you use? - imabonehead
Well I'm using package pretty generically. They do most of their installs with batch files at this new place. So my install consists of a batch file with some VBScript thrown in. I'll have to do some more testing and then we'll set it up in SCCM as a package for deployment. If everything goes well we'll bake it into the corporate image at the next quarterly refresh. - DB, Lil LB's Dad from Android
It feels nice to have come up with a solution to a problem they have been having for a while. I think my boss and supervisor were impressed. - DB, Lil LB's Dad from Android

So Wednesday I am gonna go and give this fitness bootcamp a try. Gonna do the 28 days and if I like it and see some results I'm gonna stick with it. I am kinda excited about it. http://www.fitbodybootcamp.com/manteca...
Cool! I hope you have an awesome time :D - Jennifer Dittrich
That's awesome - Stephen Mack
Sweet. Good luck and kick ass! - Tamara J. B.
Have fun. - bentley
Neat! Kick ass! - Marie
Cool! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Enjoy! But be careful. I have a number of friends who have done Fit Body Boot Camp and quality of instruction varies greatly by location. Be your own advocate every step of the way. The trainers may not always do so on your behalf (they are driven by turning out fast results to bring in more clients, not by ensuring your health and wellness). H.I.I.T. is hard but awesome! You're gonna love it! :D - Hookuh Tinypants
It was pretty fucking awesome. I'm in. I was very relieved to see that it was not Cross Fit. - Mary Carmen
Yay! :D (And I'm glad I'm not the only person who gets all >.> at Cross Fit...) - Hookuh Tinypants

The reaction of conservative clerics to Pope Francis governance of Catholic Church is a fascinating parallel to the reaction of Tea Party to Obama governance. The Pope is presumed infallible when speaking of doctrine except in this case, not this pope and certainly not these issues
The idea of Papal infallibility is something from the First Vatican Council. Pretty much most Catholic people, including several previous popes, said that was a stretch. - Johnny
Perhaps but its bedrock "conservative" doctrine and US Bishops sure liked it when they denied communion to John Kerrey... In and of itself perhaps infallibility is debatable but to agree that Benedict was and current incumbent is not reeks of the same sort of "birtherism" as we see in America and by some of the same actors - WarLord
Infallibility is to dogma and only imposed a handful of times. Doctrine is different. ;) - Janet from FFHound!
A conservatist power system corrupted for the machinations of the day? That's pretty much par for the course ;) - Johnny
The American Bishops have been loyal foot soldiers in the Republican culture war. Pope Francis comes from a place where economic inequity matters This wild be even more unsettling then anything he does to welcome people back into the church who were previously very unwelcome - WarLord

Harry Potter spinoff ‘Fantastic Beasts’ will be ‘at least’ a trilogy | Hero Complex – movies, comics, pop culture – Los Angeles Times
"The upcoming “Harry Potter” spinoff film “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” is going to be the first in a film trilogy, and more movies might be on the way. The movies will be directed by “Potter” veteran David Yates, who directed the latter four films in the eight-part franchise, and will reunite the filmmaking team of David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram, Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara said at Time Warner’s investors conference Wednesday. The “Fantastic Beasts” movies are based on an original story by “Potter” author J.K. Rowling and will mark her screenwriting debut. Release dates are slated for 2016, 2018, 2020 and perhaps beyond." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

‘Mystery Science Theater 3000’ Episodes Land at Vimeo, Which Has Exclusive on Future Releases | Variety
"A collection of 80 episodes of cult comedy series “Mystery Science Theater 3000,” featuring a man and his robot sidekicks riffing on especially terrible B-movies and assorted shorts, is now available on Vimeo. In addition, under Vimeo’s pact with Shout! Factory for “MST3K,” the online-video service has exclusive rights to any newly cleared episodes launching over the next year. According to Vimeo, about a dozen new “MST3K” episodes are slated to become available within the next 12 months. Homevideo rights for the show are complicated by the fact that the segments include full-length films and clips owned by other studios, and to date only 80 of 198 total “MST3K” episodes have been made available for digital distribution." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet

Coloring Isn't Just For Kids. It Can Actually Help Adults Combat Stress.
"Coloring is an activity that we tend to associate with children. As we grow older, we put aside our crayons and colored pencils in favor of more respectable writing utensils like pens and highlighters. However, it turns out coloring can be beneficial for adults -- namely for its de-stressing power. The practice generates wellness, quietness and also stimulates brain areas related to motor skills, the senses and creativity. In fact, publishers have lately been launching coloring books specifically for adults. The trend is alive and well in countries in Europe and North America. Most recently, in Spain, the publication Espasa published Coloréitor, with illustrations by well-known cartoonist Forges. Does Coloring Really De-stress? One of the first psychologists to apply coloring as a relaxation technique was Carl G. Jüng in the early 20th century. He did this through mandalas: circular designs with concentric shapes similar to the Gothic churches’ rose windows. They have their origin in... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet

My wife can barely speak at all, due to the tumor. (to communicate we ask questions and she nods) I have noticed in the early mornings she says a few words. I made a short video and emailed it to her daughter, saying thank you and love you. only 5 words, but the video made her day.
You are a good guy, Mike. These days are precious and it takes a huge heart to share them. You are amazing. - Shannon - GlassMistress

Pentagon Views Global Warming as an 'Immediate' Security Threat
"The Defense Department sees global warming as a challenge that "poses immediate risks" to national security, rather than one that will rear its head only in the future. This shift in thinking comes as the sprawling department puts in place a wide range of measures to ensure that its bases do not sink below the sea as the oceans rise, that its weapons systems still work in a variety of extreme weather conditions, and that it is prepared to deal with increased demands for humanitarian assistance and regional instability." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
"Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel unveiled the department's "2014 Climate Change Adaptation Roadmap" in a speech at a regional defense ministers meeting in Peru on Monday. "The loss of glaciers will strain water supplies in several areas of our hemisphere," Hagel said. "Destruction and devastation from hurricanes can sow the seeds for instability. Droughts and crop failures can leave millions of people without any lifeline, and trigger waves of mass migration."" - Sean McBride
"We have already seen these events unfold in other regions of the world, and there are worrying signs that climate change will create serious risks to stability in our own hemisphere. Two of the worst droughts in the Americas have occurred in the past ten years … droughts that used to occur once a century." - Sean McBride

GOP voter ID law gets crushed: Why Judge Richard Posner’s new opinion is so amazing http://www.salon.com/2014... via @Salon
"... His dissent includes a devastating response to virtually every false and/or disingenuous rightwing argument/talking point ever put forth in support of Photo ID voting restrictions, describing them as “a mere fig leaf for efforts to disenfranchise voters likely to vote for the political party that does not control the state government.” ..." - WarLord
"... There is only one motivation for imposing burdens on voting that are ostensibly designed to discourage voter-impersonation fraud, if there is no actual danger of such fraud, and that is to discourage voting by persons likely to vote against the party responsible for imposing the burdens. ..." - WarLord

I, Cringely To stop data theft, pull the plug - I, Cringely - http://www.cringely.com/2014...
"Back then there was no commercial Internet. The Coors network, like every other corporate computer network, was built from leased data lines connecting the brewery with sales offices and distribution centers in every state except Indiana at the time. Such networks were expensive to build and the people who ran them were quite proud. Today we just find a local Internet Service Provider (ISP) and connect to the Internet, a much simpler thing. If we want secure communications we build Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) that encrypt the data before sending it across the public Internet and decrypt it at the other end. We do this because it is easy and because it is cheap. IT used to cost a lot more than it does today and cheap Internet service helps make that possible." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
"Cheap Internet service also made possible every major corporate security breach including the big retail hacks and data theft at Target and Home Depot as well as the big JP Morgan Chase hack revealed just last week that compromised the banking information of at least 89 million customers. How cheap is IT, really, if it compromises customer data? Not cheap at all. Last year’s Target... more... - Andrew C (✔)
Creating poorly thought out and implemented proprietary networks doesn't sound like a valid alternative to me. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Fair point, I guess. But his point about the cost of breaches still seems valid. - Andrew C (✔)
It is a valid point. I just think it means companies shouldn't cut corners to save money if it's a security risk. For example, the Home Depot breach was due to using an unsupported old version of windows on their point of pay terminals. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
What it really means is using an open internet or popular software in your infrastructure is a security risk. If these would have been custom built terminals, say ones that used a proprietary embedded OS then the hack would be much less likely. Perhaps because of obscurity, but still, far less likely. - Todd Hoff
It almost certainly cheaper to ensure against the liability resulting from a potential breach than to spend the money to build and operate a breach-resistant network. It isn't about good or bad IT people; any competent one will do a risk analysis and chose a mix of technical and business (insurance) mitigations. - David Lounsbury

How A Coal Miner's Autopsy Proved A Top Doctor Wrong
"Like many other miners, he had lost primarily because of the opinions of a unit of doctors at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions that had long been the go-to place for coal companies seeking negative X-ray readings to help defeat a benefits claim. The longtime leader of the unit, Dr. Paul Wheeler, testified against Steve, and the judge determined that his opinion trumped all others, as judges have in many other cases. Today, however, there is final and overwhelming evidence that Wheeler was wrong: Steve’s autopsy." - rönin from Bookmarklet

Thanks! Rodfather: the main thing I like is that there's a built-in grip, and that helps a *lot* with the 75-300mm lens. I had gotten an add-on grip with the E-M1 but it wasn't nearly as good. The E-M1 has phase detection autofocus, which helps with flying birds. If I didn't spend 90% of my time on the 75-300mm lens, I would've kept the E-M5. The E-M1's ergonomics are a little better, and it has more buttons and features. Image quality doesn't seem any better. - Amit Patel
