Is it cheesy as hell that Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" has helped me get through some dark spots in my life? #random #sleepdeprived
Are you just a city boy? - Eric - ill subliminal
Yep. And although I wasn't born and raised in Detroit, I did live there for three months when I was three :D - Victor Ganata
Not at all. I take what I can get. - Jed
Nah, I feel like that's what songs like that are /for/. Music, all forms, feel like it taps into something we need very much in the best and worst of times. - Jennifer Dittrich
I don't care who makes fun of it, it's a great song. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Hold onto that feeling Victor. - Steve C Team Marina

"No big surprise, I have a unique name: Michael Geoghegan (MG). Given proper spelling, I am the #1 Google result. However, it turns out there is another popular MG, he is CEO of HSBC, one of the world’s largest banking companies. He has an entire P.R. department at his disposal, but little old me is still the #1 organic search result. Apparently HSBC is not good about allowing consumer feedback. I on the other hand, am accessible which means I get much of the venom aimed at HSBC via email and phone calls including the monthly death threat. Here is today’s winner: CADCYG@Gmail.com BILL wrote: F**K OFF YOU BASTARD, YOU TRY TO SUE ME THROUGH YOUR ASSH*LE COMPANY OF HBSC AGAIN I WILL PERSONALLY HUNT YOU DOWN AND MAKE DAMN SURE YOU CAN’T RIDE ANY OF YOUR SH*T AGAIN.

America really is bad at math: Macy's having a "one day sale" this Friday AND Saturday. Why not call it a "two day sale"?
If you want your mind to explode Slippy the one day sale on the west coast starts at 9pm Thursday and goes till Midnight Saturday. - Steve C Team Marina

Now I know. I knew France was a big fan of Louis. We were "elected" king more than a dozen times, no? - Louis Gray
Louis, does Loic call you Loo-ey? - Derrick
Derrick, I haven't noticed. Yesterday, when I abruptly and rudely called for him to come on stage to pose with Iain of TweetDeck and Nick of TweetMeme, he said "anything for Louis" and I believe I heard an "s". - Louis Gray
I used the "s" to make it sound english but yeah, no s pronounced in french - Loic Le Meur
I start my French classes in September for my trip next year. I wonder if Loic can tutor me. Louis, you're my "in". Make it happen! - Derrick

Twitter has broken adding Twitter accounts to FF
try adding a Twitter identity to your FF account. I'll wait - Steve Gillmor
Works for me, no problems removing and re-adding my Twitter account. - netik
tinagillmor tries to add her twitter feed, gets an error. Says "could not find the given account." - Steve Gillmor from IM
bit quick to conclude that twitter has broken with FF don't you think? - Christopher Harris
no christopher if it's FriendFeed's problem I'll be talking on NGL in 30 minutes - Steve Gillmor
Happened to me as well, once I clicked the checkbox below the name and put in the password it worked for me. - J Allen
Jtio what checkbox, the one for Protected? - Steve Gillmor
yes I noted this problem yesterday and today - FF said it could not locate new twitter feeds I wanted to add. - Vernonkell
Don't blame Twitter; I just checked our feeds and are definitely sending tweets to Friendfeed, and they are receiving them. - netik
People are also having difficulty following people. I've seen many messages over the past couple of days with that complaint. - Karoli
Yes, the one for protected updates - J Allen
Where do you go to tune into the NGL live?? - Dave Winer
Bret Taylor of FriendFeed on NewsGang Live at 1PM Pacific stream http://tinyurl.com/6ze734 - Steve Gillmor from IM
Something not working with Twitter? That's truly surprising considering they are the most reliable service on the net. - Bjorn Stromberg
i log into twitter and start following a user - cool. i go to FF and try to set up an imaginary friend (enter name, select twitter service, enter twitter name click "import twitter" and BAM: "We could not find the given account" whoever is causing this, it sux and needs to stop. - MikeAmundsen
interesting. I saw that a bunch of tweets seemed to come into FF 30 minutes late yesterday. I wonder if this is part of a strategy on Twitter's part to disrupt Twitter service within FF in order to undermine the competition without coming out and taking the heat for publicly pulling the API from them. I hope not. - Thomas Hawk
Figures the day I finally give in to starting a FF page and I can't wire up my Twitter account. - Tina Chase Gillmor
We're running into some rate limiting issues, but I'm working with Twitter to get them fixed. I just put out a work-around for now, so you should be able to add your Twitter account now. Sorry for the difficulty. - Paul Buchheit
Welcome to FriendFeed Tina. - Thomas Hawk
Wait, what's broken? Twitter or FriendFeed? Don't understand the post. :( - Mona Nomura
Broken for me at the moment too... - HostelManagement.com
same issue for me - Sinan Yuce
Same issue for me. It says "We could not find the given account" when I want to add the Twitter account... - HDG Ticaret
friendfeed is pulling my tweets from twitter. I want to stop this. In settings, I am not allowed to do it anymore. Can someone help? - Fatmanur Erdogan
Same issue, @Fatma, servislerden twitter'ı sil. - siniradam
so lame - old twitter handle in FF =/ - Greg G
Bret Taylor
We had some networking issues that were causing packet loss over the past couple days that (we think) have been resolved. If you noticed the site being a bit sluggish, it should be improved now.

Scoble, Alex Scoble
Do you pronounce sudo as sue-doo or sue-doe or su-su-sudio?
I pronounce it as sue-doe. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
I pronounce it "Run as Administrator" - Jemm
sue-doe - rönin
I started pronouncing it su-su-sudio somewhere in the 80's - Marco(aureliusmaximus)
That's awesome, Marco, hehe. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Anyone else? - Scoble, Alex Scoble
i pronouce it as "root" :P - imabonehead
I don't say that out loud. - John (bird whisperer)
I've never said that word in my life. - Derrick
I say su-doe. Jeff says sue-doo. It's a common debate here. - Rochelle
sue-doe - DB, Lil LB's Dad
I <3 you Derrick. May you always remain a sudo virgin. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Is this a question for Linux nerds? Or a surreptitious request for spelling correction? - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist from iPhone
I'll try my best. - Derrick
It's like playdough but instead of playing you sue so it's more adult sounding. - Todd Hoff
LOL, Bren, not just for Linux nerds. UNIX nerds can participate too. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
I have a good one, but it is quite misogynist. - Julian
Sue doo - Victor Ganata
Oh well, Victor, we had to have something to argue about. :D Other than compulsory voting that is, hehe. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Another sue-doo here, as well. Used to be sue-doe for a short time, till I learned what it actually stood for, then sue-doo made more sense. - April Russo
I think that saying it like pseudo makes more sense since it allows you to act as pseudo root. Of course this means that the original creators had such a sense of humor, but they may not have. I just can't say sue doo after hearing every other UNIX/Linux admin I've ever known for the last 20 years call it sudoe. I hadn't heard sue doo used until yesterday and it struck me as such a comical way to say it that I started this thread in multiple places. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
I don't know how true this is, but the etymology Wikipedia presents is that it's from 'su' and the verb 'do' because it lets you do things as the superuser. I think this is supported by the fact that the config file is /etc/sudoers, i.e., "su doers" which basically lists the users who can do things as the superuser. - Victor Ganata
Yes, that appears to be true, but it's not nearly as neat plus it makes it sound too close to doo doo. Anyhow, I think this is one of those things where both are now accepted as proper pronunciation. No need for us to create another internet war, unless you really want to have fun and waste a few minutes of your life doing it. :D - Scoble, Alex Scoble
I think it's also a bit of a slice of life that someone, and I doubt I'm the only one, can go through over 20 years working or living in a space and not be aware of things that happened within that space. So much knowledge is out there that even in a given field we won't encounter most of it. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
"Sue-doe" - Tyson Key
Sue-DOH! - Eivind
Heh, I guess Eivind's is what Homer Simpson would say after he just realized he had typed sudo rm -rf * while he was in / - Victor Ganata from iPhone
I am on record as having pronounced it "sue-doo." - Julian
sue-dough - Janet
Sue-dew make me a sandwich. - Ken Gidley from iPhone
S.U. do - NOT THE CRICKET
Doe a deer - Eric - ill subliminal
su-su-sudio - Colette
sue-doh - Kevin Johnson

10 Reasons Why You Should Sign Up for FriendFeed
I wish there was a AIR client for FF though. - barl0w
Twhirl works well for FF and it's an AIR client. - Bob M. Montgomery from twhirl
Great article. I want to learn more about the dumping the RSS feeder part. You should share some tips with that. Good stuff. - Amani
Love seeing FF through the eyes of someone who's not a traditional techie =) - FFing Enigma
Thanks Bob! - barl0w
A big part of why I wrote this post and have it running in my number one photo spot on Flickr right now is because I want more of my photography friends to sign up for the service. I *love* seeing photos here on FriendFeed and there are so many talented photographers who are not here yet who need to be. If we can get more of them to sign up, you guys will love their work. Of course there are many great photographers already on here but still a lot more who could join. - Thomas Hawk
I had to re-share this with all my FB friends. :) - Kelly W.
Still trying to figure out this whole friendfeed experience. I've had the account for a while and see lots of my twitter friends posting via ff - Demetri Mouratis
great piece! - mashable
Hi Demetri =) Different people use FF different ways because they want to get different things out of it. What are you hoping to get out of it? - FFing Enigma
Thanks for the tip. I had FF but really never 'got' what it was for. This helped! - Molly Nichelson from twhirl
Nice post Thomas. - Paul Wade
TH - for those photographers that are not on here, I put their flickr id into my Flickr Imaginary friend and see their images that way. However, it would be nice to get more photographers on here with their reader shares and such... - Justin Korn
This is definitely the best "Why Friendfeed" post I've seen. - Nick in Manila
Justin, agreed. I have a bunch of imaginary friend accounts for Flickr/Zooomr users as well. But it is nicer when they actually have accounts here, their work can be liked and commented to the larger FF community, etc. It seems like a few new people signed up today based on this post so I'm happy for that. Thanks Nick! - Thomas Hawk
I have AlertThingy FriendFeed Edition as well as AlertThingy v2 - Outsanity
Well said, Thomas. :) - Josh Haley
Nice list of reasons, all well thought out. While I'm at it, I wanted to tell you that I really like your new blog design too. - Karoli
Do most folks use FF in Standard or Real-time view mode? - Scott Loftesness
Only ever real-time.. it sits nicely on the second monitor as a Chrome App. - Greg Gannicott
Realtime here... - Chris Gulker
Did you just reformatted your post, Thomas? It a lot easier to scan through now. - Alan Le
Alan, a lot of times I post first and edit later. I probably shouldn't do that, but yeah, after posting I broke up some of the paragraphs better, bolded a few things etc., to make it easier to read. - Thomas Hawk
That's great. Make sure to check out Windows Live Writer for formatting blog posts if you haven't already yet. By the way, I love the new blog design. It's much better than when I helped you with the html way back. http://thomashawk.com/2006... - Alan Le
Y'know... I must've spent two months randomly Tweeting things like "Will someone PLEASE explain to me why I should be using FriendFeed?" ... And then two days ago I start using my account (I'd had one for a while)... and NOW someone finally makes a post outlining why I should be here. You're two days late, Mr. Hawk, two days late. :P - Lou
actually, there's no search for Russian word forms on Frf. For me that looks as if there's no search at all - orie
hmmm.. I didn't know that orie. It seems like there is a lot of international users on FF, that's surprising to me. - Thomas Hawk
I've been trying to make sense of FF for months now, but every time I come away confused. As it is I feel like I'm drowning under all the social networking sites available. I use Twitter, Plurk and Facebook the most, and I use Ping.fm so I only have to post status updates once. How can I integrate FF into this without making things even more confusing? - Chris Taylor
oooh! I found the zooomr version of this post with no formatting and I whined somewhere else in my FF feed. This one with all the formatting is better :D - Tamar Weinberg
I really liked how you did a post on Flicker - MaryAnn Chick Whiteside
All good reasons but #10 is my #1 reason :) - Mark Krynsky
Mark - agreed. Also, Thomas ... very nice blog. I like. - Amani
@Tamar, the unformated text was a problem on the Zooomr image. Kristopher's fixed that bug now so text in descriptions on Zooomr photos should format correctly now. - Thomas Hawk
I wasn't using FF, but signed up after your post. Now let's see if it is really so useful ;-) - Marcel Körner
@Marcel also take into consideration who you are subscribed to. Aside from maybe four on your current sub list, they are not very active at all on FF. This will affect your experience here. - Carlos Ayala
Didn't know there was a "Porn" room on FF (see screenshot)... - David Young
how did you see that they are not active on FF? - Marcel Körner
David, the "porn" room on FriendFeed isn't all that active actually. I'm not really interested in porn per se, just thought it was a good group name to claim in the great FriendFeed land group name grab of 2008. - Thomas Hawk
@Marcel by their numbers, and the fact that i know most of them and can tell you first hand that they are not. (if you hover over people's names you will see their numbers) - Carlos Ayala
still hard to beat 5 years on for speed - Thomas Power
So true Thomas: people still can't as a majority read dynamic feeds. - Zu from AOD
it gives you an easy key to the way back machine - chaz2b

Image uploads to a Friendfeed post are missing a proper content-header, so when you click the image to see the original size the browser downloads it instead of displaying it in a new tab. Is something up with the FF API that corresponds to its Amazon S3 upload module?
content-type.png
I was about to ask if you had an example of an image directly uploaded to Friendfeed. Then I thought about it. - NOT THE CRICKET
I'm not sure what the bug is conditional upon, yet, but I've only ever observed this problem in the last few days. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Thank you! - Meg VMeg
Ben Golub, you're our only hope. - Micah
I was about to inquire about this, glad I'm not the only one with this problem. - Colette
Help us Obi Ben Golubi. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
I thought nobody is touching the code any more. The content type could not have been changed by its own. - ؛ patrick
This is an intentional change. - Benjamin Golub
Hi Ben. What is the reason behind the change? - Melly Claus
It seems broken -- can no longer click on the picture in my FFHound posts to enlarge the image, it just downloads the image instead. (See http://friendfeed.com/zeigen... and click the image.) - Stephen Mack
Ben, thank you for the quick response. Was the change to cut down on hot-linking? - Micah
It's actually a site security improvement to keep us all safe :) - Benjamin Golub
Ahhh, ixnay ethay executables way. *nodding* - Micah
Heh, and I was thinking about posting a regression bug to Opera. Thank you. - Michael W. May
Well, I threw caution to the wind, so here's a browser extension I wrote to view a full size image in a new tab: http://friendfeed.com/fftools... - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
@glenc, Ben is from FF. Read his comments. - ؛ patrick
While I understand that this is an "intentional change" to "keep us all safe", is there a reference for exactly the problem this is meant to solve is? I'm sure I can make an educated guess, but I'd rather understand it more fully. - Andy Bakun
Still broken... - Mitchell Tsai
No one has a reference for exactly the problem this change was meant to solve, for our safety? - Andy Bakun
It really sounds like "It's not a bug, it's a feature" :) - Yusuf Arslan
And I can accept that, if I knew what the feature actually was. - Andy Bakun
Security features. - NOT THE CRICKET
thanks for explaining this odd behaviour. maybe you should report to..facebook staff - marco barsotti
Marco, Benjamin Golub is the FB Staff that is care taking the FF website. - Me
One solution is to use Opera to browse friendfeed (it leaves you the choice to open the file anyway). And that fits well, a dying social network on a dying browser. - StM
Any clue as to what I can search for to find out what the exact attack we're being protected from is? - Andy Bakun
Andy, and for all we know the attacks could have been observed against Facebook's interface and Ben et al saw that Friendfeed simply had the same vulnerability. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
The care taking of this site by Ben is well appreciated for those who still love this service. - Eric - ill subliminal
I remember a while ago someone posted an animated gif which was apparently coming from an external host and my (and some other people's) anti virus system started showing that as a treat. The worse part is that, there are many Iranian activists here and for the Ciber Army of Islamic Republic this was the easiest way to find their IP's. We have chosen FF because it's the most free and secure environment in the net. FF didn't do anything about the spammers, at least this was a good move. - ؛ patrick
Looks like some old images don't need a download any more. - ؛ patrick
What's interesting is it's only for new posts media. All the old posts, prior to the update, still work fine. - NOT THE CRICKET
I'm about 95% positive it was due to issues related to this. http://ff.im/1fCf33 - NOT THE CRICKET
Jimminy, your profile is private, so I can't see your point. - samet
it's like that since many months. For some reason, if you browse from the iPad pictures gets displayed properly. - marco barsotti
Scoble, Alex Scoble
Apparently Microsoft can't count. The Xbox One is the THIRD generation of Xbox. LOL
"One" as in the "One Ring to rule them all." Enjoy being bound in the dark etc, found, etc. - Soup in a TARDIS
Well, consider that the iPhone went from the 1st generation to the 3G and the iPad went from 2 to "New", and that Mac OS has been stuck at version 10 for more than a decade, and it's clear that innumeracy is rampant in the tech sector :) - Victor Ganata
They were to call it the Last One, but the marketing team nixed that. - Tinfoil 2.0
I am surprised it's not XBox Ultimate Edition, to be honest. - Victor Ganata
It looks like it's about as big as the old ones, and so. many. ports. I wonder how much longer this antiquated form factor will hang on. - Tinfoil 2.0
To get smaller, they'd probably need to invent a revolutionary, new cooling system, or figure out how to make GPUs that don't generate oven-like temperatures. Or try to force people to accept that you really don't need that many polygons. - Victor Ganata
They said it'd be quiet, which further constrains cooling. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
They'd also probably have to do away with the optical drive, which would then probably reintroduce the issue of requiring an always-on Internet connection (which they've confirmed is not required with the XboxOne - it will require an Internet connection, but will still work if the net connection is out-of-commission for a while) - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Also sounds like they didn't bother with backwards compatibility for DVD based Xbox 360 games. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Or online games you have purchased - Shevonne
Yeah, Shevonne, I think you are right, but I also think that with the online stuff they can possibly translate ownership from old platform to new for any online titles that get rewritten. Not that they will do this, just that it's possible. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
I was thinking that it could be possible as well, but it seems due to the new hardware architecture...maybe the online games were created using the old one so it won't transfer? Someone know? - Shevonne
I assume that the PS4 will have the same issue. - Shevonne
They could always recompile the old games if a software emulation system isn't possible. But it's still noticeable how they didn't even mention it. Used to be backwards compatibility was a key feature (at least at console launches), or if it was left out, they at least had to address it. - Andrew C (✔)
Yeah, I'm certain Microsoft (and Sony) would rather that developers port their games to the new platform. - Victor Ganata
Yep, and it would still be possible for Microsoft to swing the licenses to the ports. Unfortunately, for the bean counters, there's little financial reason to do so. The number of sales that good will creates is much harder to count. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
IMHO cross compiling always has, and always will, suck big time - Jeff (Team マクダジ )
It's got to be better than emulation, though, performance wise, even if the XBox One is way more powerful than the XBox 360. - Victor Ganata
That depends on the game, but yes, in general that's true, Victor. Jeff, I believe that a lot of modern games are developed chiefly for one console (I think EA mostly develops first for PS3) and then ported to the Xbox. It seems to work well. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
should be interesting to watch now that both platforms will be x86 based, instead of totally different core architectures - Jeff (Team マクダジ )
These days they're usually not ported after the fact, they're usually developed on the dev team's own abstraction layer (or sometimes licensed middleware) over PS3 and 360. - Andrew C (✔)
Yeah, I know that Square Enix uses Crystal Tools to develop games for PS3, XBox 360, Windows, and the Wii. - Victor Ganata
Yes, Sony is doing the same thing with PS4. Regarding MS transferring the licenses, if Windows Phone 7-> Windows Phone 8 is any indication, some games will, but others won't (I was able to download new version of Fruit Ninja when I switched phones, but had to buy new copies of my Angry Birds games) - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
One red ring to rule them all. (a correction to the first comment) I wonder how they will compare to the original XBox, as web servers. - April Russo

Does that really what atheist extremists do ? Talk about space, aliens or parallel worlds and stuff ? or this is clearly a manipulation ? and Hey check out PKK please :) The idea behind this organization is practically based on marksism & leninism so that makes them atheist as well, right ? correct me if I'm wrong. So what they do? They bomb and kill innocent people in Turkey , does not even matter if they are babies, youngsters or women. - mcd
Seems if this was a equal opportunity parody, the Aethists would be bombing nativity scenes and Christmas trees ;) - Johnny from iPhone
Except I haven't heard of atheists bombing either of those things. - rönin
I think they just throw barbed wit and strongly worded missives. - Jennifer Dittrich
Atheists are too busy doing important things like scrubbing blessings off of highways. - Akiva
Rene, PKK does not represent all Kurdish community in Turkey and yes, most of the kurdish people are not atheist, I agree with that and I sort of agree with the second part too, the way those govs threated kurdish people was all wrong. However, kurdish people is not my main point here, what I was trying to say and honestly I admit it seems that I am not intellectual enough to do that... more... - mcd

1.05 (670/633) - Micah from Bookmarklet

Brian, go to "Me" link (http://friendfeed.com/brianjo...) which defaults to the Feed tab. Look at the sidebar on the right, below Discussion. - Micah

OK, sorry. I'm a total dumbass. I stopped reading after the weekly totals... - Brian Johns
3.74, which seems way off of everybody else's. I wonder what that says. I comment a lot more than I like. - Cyrus Lendvay

Thanks JA, Chris (wow, 12+ is unusual :), Serkan and Nine! - Micah
Micah.. I told you I take my likes seriously; ). You *might* want to ask (in a separate post) what percentage of likes were used to "bookmark" a post or save it for later VS actually "liking it". I NEVER used like for that.. but I did use a private group that if filled with my own topics (and comments).. - Chris Myles
1.78 (8529/4782) - Micah
Likes are down relative to comments, which matches my much lower frequency of liking. I'm a more selective liker than ever. - Micah
I don't think I could argue that any particular kind of ratio is "best", because if Lurkers like to Lurk and cultivate (via Likes) and the Chatty-ites love to chat, to pump out much many more comments than Likes, each can be happy and make for a great social experience. - Micah
383/372 - Ashish
'Just clicking "Like" seems too easy' — Jason, that's because you're from the Chatty-ite tribe :) - Micah

Thank you, Alex :) - Micah
that was my third post... It's interesting to see how the number has changed. of course, I manipulated the number to a degree, because I stopped "liking" things for a while... - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist
Bren, the other thing that can seriously throw off someone's stats is a feed that upon each item it imports adds a comment automatically. - Micah
true. that can seriously inflate comment stats, of course. Then you have someone like RAPatton, who posts a gazillion comments, in part because of his playlist posts where he will list each song in a separate comment. I found, after this post in fact, that I tended to "like" things much more frequently than comment on them, that I was lurking instead of participating. I have changed the way I use ff rather considerably, and I think for the better. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist

For those of you who can't get enough Fox Foster Kittens, I set up a live stream. You can find the most recent ustream link on the kitties new facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages...

I saw you hanging out last night. Joining seemed silly but I waved. - Louis Gray
I was trying to figure out if I could do with this google +, but I couldn't figure it out. Luckily Ustream has an app that goes to a Facebook page. I was only on there for a minute at a time. But now I'll wave back to you! - Rachel Lea Fox
I'm getting a page not found message. :( - Katy S
I did at first Katy. I just searched her via FB and liked the page. Will you have a 'follow' option? - Janet from FFHound!
Sorry, I guess it needs the numbers at the end of the link: https://www.facebook.com/pages... Apparently I can't have a regular URL till I have 25 followers. So far I have 14. - Rachel Lea Fox
I'm going to wash the kittens now. I'm not videoing the washing, but the damp kittens will be on video post wash. :) - Rachel Lea Fox
I will be feeding the kittens in a couple minutes. A new video will be available on the page in a minute. :) - Rachel Lea Fox
I will be feeding the kittens at about 4pm today if anyone is interested. And again at about 9:30pm - Rachel Lea Fox
I just watched the sleeping kittens. How I want little furballs in my home. - Janet
The kittens are cuddling up now but are still a bit awake. They are having more and more awake time. Next feeding is about 3am and after that it's 8:30am-ish PST!! - Rachel Lea Fox

So flippin' adorable! - Katy S
He really is. He was having dreams on my belly <3 - Melly Claus
The shade of his markings reminds me of a siamese I had http://www.flickr.com/photos... She, too, was described as lilac. - Katy S
So pretty! Mists have Burmese in their background, and I think Burmese have Siamese in their lineage, is that right? - Melly Claus
I think they are related some way. The shape of his face (and of course, those blue eyes) reminded me of her, too. He looks like a little lovey cat, which is always wonderful. - Katy S

So Tim Cook said that Apple will never come out with crappy products. This means that Apple is about to release a line of crappy products.
It's kind of like a GM giving the vote of confidence for a coach. Once that happens it's over. - Todd Hoff
Plus Apple is always saying they'll never come out with certain things, like PCs that run Windows or phones or netbooks or 7" tablets. As soon as they say they'll never come out with something, they almost immediately release it. - Victor Ganata
Well it's not like Apple has never released a crappy product. - rönin
True, but this time, they're going to do it on purpose ;) - Victor Ganata
Lisa was an expensive boat anchor. or are we talking post-Mac Apple here? - Big Joe Silence
Steve Jobs said the same thing many times. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)

Pop quiz: what is the plural of "Nexus"?
In English, "Nexuses". - DJF from Android
In Latin, nexus. - John (bird whisperer)
Nexopodez (with a z). *nods authoritatively* - Stephen Mack from iPhone
In Norwegian, "Nexuser." - Eivind
Dealership. Oh wait, that's the plural of Lexus. - bentley
Heh. This came to my mind because I was deeply perturbed by seeing "Nexii". I'm surprised I don't see "Priii" more often. - Victor Ganata
Nexi's Midnight Runners - Big Joe Silence
Nexusesi - Todd Hoff
Octonexxi - Big Joe Silence
Wiktionary say: plural: nexuses or nexus - bentley
OED agrees: plural same or nexuses - http://oxforddictionaries.com/definit... - bentley

Couple glues 60,000 pennies to bedroom floor - TODAY News - http://todaynews.today.com/_news...

Couple glues 60,000 pennies to bedroom floor - TODAY News
""We'd been looking up options and were thinking about being green when I said we should just tile the floor in pennies," Lange, a entrepreneur and self-described design freak, says. Belden wasn't completely on board at first, but before she could put her two cents in, the project off and running. "I came home one day and found a small corner was done, so I thought 'I guess we're doing it,'" she recalled." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
it would be cold, extremely difficult to clean and uncomfortable to walk on. not to mention the annoyance of pennies popping up once in a while, creating holes on the floor. i don't like it and find it way too pretentious anyway, but if they were determined to do this, out of practical concerns at least they should have gone for a wall instead. - grizabella
Would that be a good thing or a bad thing in a thunder storm? - Ken Morley
"An estimated 59,670 pennies were used to completely cover the floor, which was then sanded down to a shiny copper sheen and cemented in with a clear coat as smooth as a sheet of glass." So not hard to clean, and no risk of losing individual pennies, actually. And if they wanted to do the floor, more power to them. - Jenica
"Honey, why do you have Abraham Lincoln's face on your ass? ...a few hundred times?" - Big Joe Silence
"There's always money in the floor." (http://www.youtube.com/watch...) - Stephen Mack
ok, i've missed the "clear coat" part. indeed that should make it a lot more feasible to clean and maintain. - grizabella
Someone did that to a car at a cruise in I went to: http://www.flickr.com/photos... - Katy S
So, I'm guessing the answer is yes, but is this even legal? - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Wonder how much copper they actually have there—depends on how many pennies were minted before the 1980s when the US penny went from 95% copper to 3%, 97% zinc. - Micah
Technically not legal, it's destroying US currency. But no one really cares enough to do anything about it. I've seen it a lot, but for some reason I've never liked it. - Heather
My dad had a penny table done the same way - Mr. The Jason Fleming from Android
Heather, well, if you don't seal your collection of pennies in a clear coat you are slowing destroying them by oxydation. :) - Micah
"which was then sanded down to a shiny copper sheen" :P - Heather

I'm not an atheist, but feel bad for them (and non-Christians) with all the mentions of Jesus and god. Non-believers are citizens too.
I feel bad for the separation of church and state for all the mentions of god in formal government proceedings. Bothered me since I was little and realized "under god" in pledge of allegiance didn't make sense with what we just read in history lesson. - Steve C Team Marina
Yup. Even when I was a believer it bothered me. The separation of Church and State is as important for religionists as it is for agnostics and atheists. Anyone who doesn't think that's true needs to look at English and Irish history for a refresher course. - Spidra Webster
Amen! - SAM
*bows before the bodhi tree* - Derrick
I'm old enough to remember when "under God" was added to the Pledge of Allegiance. I didn't like it then and never say it. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Obama acknowledged that there are nonbelievers amongst the American citizenry in his first inaugural address and I burst into tears. - Jenica
References to God and other Christian beliefs in the political context strike me as disingenuous at best. Throw away lines and platitudes stuck in because that is what politicians do. As a Christian I don't find myself identifying with a politician just because he or she says those things. Their actions show more about their supposed faith than mere words. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
As a Christian I get really uncomfortable when the trappings of my faith are used in a secular and/or multireligious context. It just feels weird. Like wearing a party hat to a business meeting. - Deborah Fitchett
Thank Falwell and Robertson. I think the rise of The Moral Majority brought that custom into vogue. Haven't done the research but I don't think religious speech was so front and center before them (and Reagan). Having said that? I almost want to say that it's comforting to have a cultural reference I can identify with thrown in since much of the time I've felt shut out culturally in the... more... - MoTO: #TeamMarina
MoTO pretty much summed up my feelings on this. As usual. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
It's also true that actually doing anything about keeping explicit religious indoctrination out of public schools is only about 64 years old (there's a very good documentary about the landmark trial, McCollum vs. Board of Education: "The Lord is Not On Trial Here Today"--got it with Americans United renewal last year). - Walt Crawford

[HELP] Friendfeed doesn't import my Twitter feed since 48 hours...Manual refresh on Twitter doesn't work too...why?
same here :( - Aline Ohannessian
Same here. Is it because of the new Twitter API or something else? - @barisunver #beyn.org
any idea?? still not working... - catepol
Is it because of the new Twitter API? Is there something to modify? - catepol
It's working for me now, except yesterday's twits weren't updated. But I just tweeted something and my FF profile is updated immediately. - @barisunver #beyn.org
@barisunver is your twitter account protected or not? (just to understand) - catepol
It's not. - @barisunver #beyn.org
I've got the same problem, and my Twitter account isn't protected either. It has to be the API thing. - Ciaoenrico
But if this is the problem, how come my Brightkite account doesn't have any problem writing to my Twitter account? - Ciaoenrico
Just because brightkite maybe did the update requested by twitter :) - Napolux
so please FF do this fucking update requested by Twitter's new API!!! - catepol
But if Brightkite did that, wouldn't I have gotten a request for an OAuth from Twitter for it? That's what the e-mail said. I do wish FF would look into it, though - it's annoying. - Ciaoenrico
well, it's even (still) not possible to connect to twitter. It says all the the time, could not find the twitter account :( - plejaden
Unable to add any of my Twitter accounts, either. A buddy says it works fine for him. Nice. - Michael Kaiser
same here... ff doesn't import tweet - Edoardo Odorico
It doesn't import anything of mine: Tumblr, YouTube, blogs etc - M F
Same here I can't even add the twitter account - Bren @ Headlines-Today
Same here, can't even add my twitter account. - Ludvig Lindblom
I am having the same problem as well, cant add my twitter account. - deniztan
Friendfeed doesn't import my Twitter feed :( - сквозь пельменную
Mine too! - @barisunver #beyn.org
Same problem here. - Bruce Wayne

Yet another warning about relying too heavily upon what Wikipedia has to say about some things. I've started checking out more published books from the library to learn about new subjects. The web in general can be too scattered and misleading. - Wikipedia's 'Goan war' unmasked as elaborate hoax - http://phys.org/news...

"It went undetected for five years on Wikipedia, but now a seemingly meticulous entry about a 17th century conflict between colonial Portugal and India's Maratha empire has been outed as a hoax." - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill) from Bookmarklet
I should add, though, one has to be careful about some of the published (professionally edited, not self-published) books, too. There are some sloppy ones out there. Some of them use Wikipedia and other iffy websites as references, and the more that happens, the more screwed we could all be... We could end up with a remixed history like the one shown at the end of Idiocracy if the sloppiness keeps happening for long enough. Like a game of Telephone. - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
There are published texts that cite Wikipedia?!? - Victor Ganata
I'm pretty sure I've come across a couple of instances. Luckily not very often. Some have definitely cited websites, which can be okay, depending. - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill) from iPhone
I wonder how many more hoax articles there are similar to this Goan war article. - Stephen Mack
There are probably a ton of obscure articles filled with completely made-up stuff. It makes me think of Borges's Tlön, Uqbar, Orbius Tertius - Victor Ganata

An alternate universe
"On the way to the Apple Store today to buy AppleCare+ for my wife’s new iPhone 5, we passed the new Microsoft Store, coincidentally in the middle of their Surface with Windows RT launch. (That is actually the product’s name. “Surface with Windows RT”.) They had set up a table and an Xbox demo in the hallway and were giving away “Microsoft Surface”-branded disposable rain ponchos (this entire mall is indoors, including the parking, and it didn’t rain today) and muffin fragments (much like when you order a soda on a plane, they pour a third of it into a little plastic cup full of hollow ice cylinders, and they don’t let you keep the rest of the can). An employee with a microphone in front of the Xbox kiosk was talking to the audience of nobody as if it were a dance party. The store is creepy: so many elements are embarrassingly similar to the Apple Store on the next floor. Microsoft even ripped off trivial elements that easily could have been different, such as the employee uniform.... more... - Winckel from Bookmarklet
They're really trying, aren't they? - Tyson Key
Happy New Year! Winckel. Wherever you are, I wish you the best of everything, - mina_sydney

Minor change-in-language grumble, not pointed at anybody in particular (after reading some email list stuff): At what point did "piqued" become so arcane that "peaked" is the obvious choice?
omg, this drives me nuts. THANK YOU. - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
Probably around the time we started wrecking havoc. - laura x
and taking the reigns. - RepoRat
And towing the line. - laura x
And pouring over books. - RepoRat
I just grin and bare it. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
And wary/weary. - Andrew C (✔)

It doesn't phase me. I must be going through a faze. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Supposably, since the don of thyme. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
This is making me feel a bit peaky. Should go and climb something... - Cameron Neylon
For all intensive purposes. - bentley
Don't reek havoc over it, Walt! - LibrarianOnTheLoose
I think you are all really bias about this - maʀtha
You died in the wool precriptive grammarians, you - maʀtha
it's one of our religious tenants! - RepoRat
Count me impressed: I didn't expect any followup at all. Now, as to discreet and discrete...and conscience and conscious, for that matter. - Walt Crawford
I less than three this thread. :D - Lisa L. Seifert
