George RR Martin’s The Winds of Winter: no plans for publication in 2015 [The Guardian]
From the article: "Another year of waiting for The Winds of Winter to blow is in store for fans of George RR Martin, as his publisher confirmed there are no plans for the much-anticipated latest volume from his A Song of Ice and Fire series to appear in 2015. Instead, readers will have to comfort themselves with an illustrated edition of three previously anthologised novellas set in the world of Westeros." - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet

When our family moved to California from England in 1979 (when I was age 12), my brother Phil and I wanted to visit Santa's Village (in Scott's Valley, off Highway 17 on the way to Santa Cruz) more than any other place in the world. - http://www.booksandsuch.com/blog...
When our family moved to California from England in 1979 (when I was age 12), my brother Phil and I wanted to visit Santa's Village (in Scott's Valley, off Highway 17 on the way to Santa Cruz) more than any other place in the world.
(Image from a blog post by a woman named Wendy Lawton with her own recollections of visiting Santa's Village.) - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
My father had become tired of living in England, feeling that the tax rate had grown too high and the standard of living had grown too low. There was labor unrest (I recall nurses, taxicab drivers, and garbage collectors all being on strike at the same time) and my father wanted to move us to Silicon Valley. But the house he'd bought wasn't ready yet, so when we moved in the Summer of 1979, we rented an apartment in south San Jose, near Cottle Road. - Stephen Mack
At the time, there was a theme park not too far called Frontier Village.(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki...) There wasn't much to do for us in Summer -- my dad was working, we didn't know anyone, so my mother would take me and my brothers Phil and Rob and sister Jo to Frontier Village quite a bit, until we got sick of it. But we saw signs advertising Santa's Village. - Stephen Mack
The ads made the place look magical: Igloos and cabins and sleigh rides and reindeer and elves and mushroom houses and treehouses and snow. - Stephen Mack
We'd pester my mother endlessly to visit. But it was a long and hot summer, and my mother had zero interest in driving over the Santa Cruz mountains on highway 17 to visit the place. (She was always a bit of a nervous driver, and highway 17 had a deservedly awful reputation as a dangerous highway -- before it was upgraded, it was poorly graded, prone to closure due to rockslides, had [and still has] very windy turns, and was frequently shut down due to accidents.) - Stephen Mack
Occasionally we'd go to the beach in Santa Cruz when my mother was feeling brave enough, so we'd drive by the Village in Scotts Valley, catching brief glimpses of it from out the window. And it seemed like it was shut down -- we thought just for the Summer. - Stephen Mack
It got to the point where we'd built it up in our minds as being greater than Disney World, Sea World, Six Flags and Marine World all rolled into one. - Stephen Mack
Eventually our mother promised us a visit when it got closer to Christmas. - Stephen Mack
It became her go-to stick and carrot. "If you don't clean up your room right now, you can forget about Santa's Village." "Good job on that test. When we visit Santa's Village, you can have an extra reindeer ride." - Stephen Mack
And so then the fateful day in October was settled, and we all bundled up in our VW camper van (my mom always liked VW vans) for our visit. - Stephen Mack
We were all so excited it was indescribable. My youngest brother, Rob, was nearly carsick from the windy road. But we finally took the exit for Santa's Village (called, to this day, "SANTAS VILLAGE ROAD" on the exit sign) and drove into the parking lot. - Stephen Mack
The lot was deserted, but we attributed that to us being early (the flyer we had said it was open at 11, but we got there before 10:30). - Stephen Mack
The gates were padlocked. A sign, with the ink from the letters smeared and leaving trails of ink, said: SANTAS VILLAGE CLOSED FOR REMODEL REOPENING CHRISTMAS 1980 - Stephen Mack
We were heartbroken. - Stephen Mack
We hadn't thought to call ahead. - Stephen Mack
The world wide web was not even in an embryonic stage. So there was no web site to consult. - Stephen Mack
Dejectedly, we got back in the car and eventually settled on the steam train rides at Roaring Canyon in nearby Felton. - Stephen Mack
I don't think it's inaccurate to say I was in tears. - Stephen Mack
I never forgot that sign. Starting in November of 1980, a year later, at age 13, I began calling the phone number of the place to find out when it would re-open. - Stephen Mack
The recording on the phone number had few details ("Ho Ho Ho! You've reached Santa's Village. We are currently closed. Please leave your message for our elves after the beep.") And then one day, the number was disconnected. - Stephen Mack
We would hear rumors of remodels and transactions to re-open the place. - Stephen Mack
Every time we'd drive by, the igloos and mushroom buildings and cabins looked a bit more worn down. - Stephen Mack
By about 1985, when I graduated from high school, there was no longer much sign that there had been a theme park there. And honestly I don't think I really gave up on wanting to visit the place until about then. - Stephen Mack
It lives in my mind and heart today as a metaphor -- for longing, for a promise of enchantment, a broken promise. - Stephen Mack
But someday, I will take my children to Santa's Village. We will ride the sleigh ride. We will visit Santa. We will see elves making toys. We will climb the tree house to survey the snow-lined cabins. Christmas is eternal. Somewhere. Someday. Somehow. - Stephen Mack
-- fin -- - Stephen Mack
**claps** finally!! :) - Ken Gidley
I had the great pleasure of visiting Santa's Village several times as a child - but it was in the San Bernadino Mts in So. Cal., near Big Bear Lake. It shut down in 1998, but rumors of a resurrection exist: http://themeparkadventure.com/santas-... - Ken Gidley
I can understand how disappointing it must have been for you, Stephen. But can you imagine the disappointment in your parents seeing that sign and realizing the stick and carrot was gone? :) - Stephan from iPhone
Ken, wow, fascinating link, thanks -- maybe there is a chance I will one day take my kids to a Santa's Village. - Stephen Mack
Stephan, I'm sure you're right, but it's also balanced against the fact they never had to hear us beg for a visit anymore... :) - Stephen Mack
I'm in a Santa's Village Facebook group (also one for Frontier Village) and it's really cool to see members' old pictures of their visits. Someone even converted old home movies & posted them. I completely understand the longing you describe - it held a very similar thrall over me too, even when I was a teen living in Ben Lomond seeing the abandoned park every day, it felt like something on my childhood to-do list that I'd never gotten to check off. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
This was the completely opposite of our childhood. When we moved to CA, seeing the ads for Santa's Village freaked us out so much, it became a threat with my mother. "If you don't clean your room/eat your veggies/pass that test, I'm going to take you to Santa's Village!" - Anika
Anika: That's awesome. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
eBay to lay off 2,400, could split into three parts [San Jose Mercury News] - http://www.mercurynews.com/busines...
eBay to lay off 2,400, could split into three parts [San Jose Mercury News]
From the article by Jeremy C. Owens, published at 1:33 today: "A PayPal spinoff isn't enough for eBay -- the company now plans to lay off thousands of workers and split off yet another independent company as its auction site suffers. eBay announced Wednesday afternoon that it would slash 2,400 jobs, about 7 percent of its global work force, as it struggles to bounce back from a cyberattack that forced all users to reset their passwords. The e-commerce giant will also split off its eBay Enterprise business, which manages online sales efforts for other businesses." - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
Kevin Fox on twitter: "The day after Obama singles out EBay as a jobs creator in the State of the Union, EBay announces 2,400 layoffs." (https://twitter.com/kfury...) - Stephen Mack
[Liking to follow conversation. Do not like.] - Laura Norvig
Yeah, this is a bad one. Personally, I've never used eBay and never really "got" it. But it's surprising to me they're attributing the drop-off in customers to the password change. - Stephen Mack
I'm a sometimes eBay user. A few times a year. I had completely forgotten about the password thing. - Brian Johns
I attribute the drop-off in users to the increase in other services. eBay stopped being a real "auction" site a while ago (yes, people do still auction things on there, but most of the listings are "buy it now" types of listings), and the whole "buy it now" type of listing is much better represented in places like Amazon now. - COMPLICATED MR.

Exclusive: Potential Alibi Witness for Convicted Murderer in ‘Serial’ Breaks Silence With New Affidavit [TheBlaze.com]
From the post: "The former classmate of Adnan Syed’s who could hold the key to unraveling his conviction in the murder of Hae Min Lee has written a new affidavit reasserting that she was with Syed at the exact time the state argued that he killed his ex-girlfriend in 1999, and alleging that the original prosecutor in the case essentially convinced her not to participate in the appeals process." - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
Fascinating. Reinforces one of my strongest takeaways from the podcast, that prosecutor Kevin Urick is hopelessly corrupt. - Stephen Mack
BTW, I love reading real depositions and affidavits. - Stephen Mack
It's interesting contrasting their two recollections - in his the details are vague, and he has no notes, but he insists on an absolute (No, I absolutely didn't do that thing she said.) Hers is a lot more detailed, specific, and she mentions that she took notes during the conversation. - Jennifer Dittrich
Jennifer, yeah -- he's such a slime ball. Even in this brief excerpt of his interview with the blaze, he's contradicting himself. He says she told him it was to get the family off her back: "She definitely told me that she wrote what she wrote, was to appease the family, to get them off her back … that’s what I recall, the gist of the conversation, that she wrote something to get the... more... - Stephen Mack
All 108 Sleater-Kinney Songs, Ranked [SPIN] - http://www.spin.com/article...
All 108 Sleater-Kinney Songs, Ranked [SPIN]
From the article: "In 1995, the Olympian monolith that is Sleater-Kinney rose and went on to wreak blissful havoc on rock fans' eardrums (and hearts) for the next ten years. The trio's raw (but never undercooked) early albums received that rare combination of attention that was both early and earned. And once they found the perfect drummer, they carved new crevices in their own unmistakable punk sound, from bubblegum pop to psychedelic metal. Then they stopped. But in another triumph that defies typical careerist narrative — just like making seven straight great albums does — they returned this week, after a nearly nine-year hiatus, with No Cities to Love: an album with no loss of quality, instrumental facility, or even volume. Greatness and longevity in tandem are somewhat of a rare combination. The Who came back, sort of. The Clash, the Beatles, and Led Zeppelin did not." - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
There's zero point in arguing over personal preference, but my own top 12 would be: 12. Off With Your Head (Future Soundtrack compilation) 11. Oh! (One Beat) 10. By The Time You're Twenty-Five (Get Up single b-side) / 9. What If I Was Right (off "Jackson's Jukebox" compilation) / 8. A Quarter To Three (The Hot Rock) / 7. Everything (The Woods) / 6. Little Babies (Dig Me Out) / 5. Tapping (Get Up single b-side) / 4. Dig Me Out / 3. Hot Rock / 2. Words And Guitar (Dig Me Out) / 1. Get Up (The Hot Rock) - Stephen Mack
Hmm, actually -- I need to rearrange my list to get "Burn, Don't Freeze" in the top 5. - Stephen Mack

FriendFeed Bookmarklet Hosting: Micah W.'s ffbookmarklet v1.03 "Woot Tube" Release --  draggable version
Having trouble with the FF Bookmarklet in Chrome or other browsers? This is an updated version thanks to Micah and sizofroid. To make it easier to install, I'm now hosting it at my site, so you don't have to jump through hoops, you can just drag the updated version to your bookmark bar. - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
Yay! [update: uh, I don't see the actual bookmarklet on that page] - lris
Hmm, what browser are you using, Iris? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Chrome, Mac. Here's what I see http://screencast.com/t... - lris
Well that's weird. Chrome on Windows is working for me. When you go to the FF tools page, is the button there visible for you? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Yes it is - lris
Iris, have you disabled JavaScript by chance? I had a coworker test with Chrome on his Mac and it was working for him. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
No. And I did have adblocker running but I disabled it for that site. - lris
I love you. - Melly
I love you too, Melly! - Stephen Mack
Iris, hold on, gonna try something to fix it. - Stephen Mack
I'm running Chrome on Windows if that helps, FYI. - Melly
Iris, I changed how the image for the button was hosted. Did that fix it for you? - Stephen Mack
Yay! I see it! - lris
Yay! Hmm, you must have some pretty high levels of security set. All I changed was copying the image for the button from FF's server to mine. - Stephen Mack
I am not aware of extra high levels of security. Maybe I'm accidentally extremely careful. :) - lris
I'm sure it's no accident. :) - Stephen Mack
Hopefully no one else is having any trouble? - Stephen Mack
I added the older versions at the bottom, just in case there are any compatibility issues. - Stephen Mack
When I saw "draggable" I first thought it meant the popup can be dragged around within the page, to make it easier to select images that it would ordinarily be covering up...like this old one: http://pastebin.ca/1323845 I am still using that one, but installed as a dedicated CustomButton. If you have the Firefox add-on installed, it's easy to install the button from here: http://appsapps.info/ff... What I would like to have is a combo of all the goodies into one awesome button. - April Russo
April, that's a cool idea. I couldn't get the one you linked to work for me, though. I wonder if we can beg Micah to add that functionality into his version. - Stephen Mack
I just did. ;) - April Russo
Ah! I don't know about CustomButton, though. What is taht? - Stephen Mack
Which one could you not get to work? The 1st or 2nd link? The 1st is instructions for modifying the official bookmarklet to use the drag & drop popup. The 2nd link requires the CustomButtons add-on installed in Firefox. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US... You'd just click the link on my page to install the button, then right click a Firefox toolbar, go to... more... - April Russo
2nd link. But I see what you mean, it requires the add-on. Does it work on Chrome or IE, or just Firefox? - Stephen Mack
Compatibility: Mozilla Firefox 1.5+ SeaMonkey 2.0+ Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0+ Mozilla Sunbird 0.8-0.9 / Calendar 1.0pre KompoZer 0.8b1-0.8b3 Flock 0.7-1.5+ and Pale Moon (which is what I am using) - April Russo
Bump due to recent discussion. Micah, it'd be great to incorporate that feature from April's. Heard that at least one user is having trouble with the new bookmarklet. How's it working for others? (Works great for me! My default browser is Chrome.) - Stephen Mack
Working with Chrome, I'd say it works about 95% of the time really well. There are a couple sites where it just doesn't want to pull in the images, and sometimes the NY Times is tweaky, but both seem related to recent layout changes. - Jennifer Dittrich
Mine still doesn't work. I wonder if one of my plugins is breaking it. I've taken to browsing in Chrome and copying the URL over to IE when I want to post something to FF. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
It doesn't work for me: in Firefox (my default browser) it just brings up an empty box. As DB said, it might be a conflict with an extension, but I'm not sure which would be causing it. - John (bird whisperer)
First off, thank you for this work. I'll test it out in a bit. I have a lot of browsers to test in, and I use XMARKS so it should just pop to all my different browsers. - Eric - ill subliminal
Bump for Janet. - Stephen Mack from iPhone

I started feeling ill on Sunday evening. Have spent most of my time in bed sleeping on-and-off since then. Total steps taken today and yesterday is less than 500. Whoever went into work sick last week and gave this to me: I'd like your address so I can send you some glitter from that new site.

When my friend Kyrie invited me to her graduation from a five-day BAMM class, I didn't know what to expect. That first class I observed was taught by a woman named Cori and a man named Stu. When I later became an instructor, those same two led the instructor training. - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
That instructor training was two weeks, and was very intense. It combined physical training with emotional training, including crisis counseling. Cori led off each session with a check-in, and was very inventive in how she approached teaching the difficult work. - Stephen Mack
Not long after I became an instructor, the original founder of BAMM, Sheryl, retired, and Cori took over as Director. - Stephen Mack
Cori was a wise and canny leader, and instituted new programs to get the word out, including starting classes held at schools and businesses. She also formally transformed BAMM into a non-profit business. - Stephen Mack
In addition to being an outspoken advocate for gay rights, Cori had a wonderful sense of humor, a huge heart, and she was a skilled potter. - Stephen Mack
She and her partner Faith had a beautiful home in Oakland where she had a pottery studio. She had also worked as a farmer in her early life, and I remember distinctly one day her teaching us how to tell a good cantaloupe from a bad one (knocking on it to hear an echo, looking for a good variation of color and separation between the surface veins and the skin). - Stephen Mack
I lost track of Cori when I retired from Model Mugging in 2001. But for a while prior, I would enjoy attending game nights with her and some of the other instructors. She was a brave, wonderful woman. When Cori retired from BAMM, she returned to her farming roots -- small-scale and part-time. Here's a picture of her at the Oakland farmer's market: https://www.flickr.com/photos... - Stephen Mack
I learned this week that Cori died Tuesday of brain cancer. RIP, Cori. You taught me a lot, and I will miss you. Thank you for your wisdom and guidance. - Stephen Mack

TAKE THAT, EVERYONE ELSE. - Andrew C (✔)
Sit and spin, Mr. C! - Spidra Webster

I vaguely remember exercising, a long time ago. Now I can only live vicariously through you. Please tell me the trees are still green and the birds still sing, out there in the "outside" place I remember. - Brian Johns
In this Winter, Sparky, the trees are gray and dark, and the birds slumber. Yet the breeze and the moonlight refresh us as we run, on the outside. - Stephen Mack
In the dark, Sparky, the moon is full and bright, and the mice scamper. But the adrenalin rejuvenates us as we sweat, on the outside. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
On the outside. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I shall wait for Spring. In the Spring I shall run and play, and laugh again. Perhaps we shall run together, like when we were children. The sweat will pour out of me like the last pains leave the dying man, and I shall be purified again. In the Spring. - Brian Johns
I dig it. *snaps fingers* - Stephen Mack
Sir Mack, we need to make plans for you to join me for a race of some sort. I demand it, really. - Hookuh Tinypants
I concur! Any ideas? I've been meaning to do one of those nighttime glow techno sort of runs. I'm a bit intimidated by Mudders whether tough or otherwise. - Stephen Mack
Oh you are so ready for a Mudder. If you don't feel you are up to a Tough Mudder, there's always Mudderella. It's a good middle-ground. :) And as soon as Electric Run posts their 2015 NorCal schedule, I'M HOLDING YOU TO IT. - Hookuh Tinypants
