LCARS in the 24th century probably doesn't have UNIX underpinnings, huh? Otherwise you could just "sudo kill -9" the holodeck before an out-of-control process vaporizes your personnel. Although leaving a bunch of zombie holodeck process could probably still cause huge problems.

Nothing you can do from the command line? This is what the Federation gets for not using Open Souce software :D - Victor Ganata from iPhone

Nagging worked for kidnapped 94-year-old: report - Taipei Times - http://www.taipeitimes.com/News...
"Tseng recently went on the run after becoming indebted to a loan shark. In desperate need for money, the 55-year-old stole a minivan and drove on Friday to the plush neighborhood of New Taipei City’s Linkou District (林口) to capture a wealthy victim, police said. Chou (周) had been taking a stroll before she was forced into Tseng’s car and tied up with iron wire. Tseng contacted Chou’s family and demanded a NT$7 million (US$230,000) ransom, before driving Chou to his hideout in Taoyuan County, the police said. During the ride, Chou began to lecture Tseng. “If you want to do business, use your mouth and not your fist. If you have troubles, you can always talk things over with someone. You should live hard and work harder,” Chou was quoted by police as saying to Tseng. The police said Tseng later dropped Chou off at a gas station on Taoyuan City’s Da Sing W Road after he was unable to tolerate her moralizing." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

https://github.com/blog... "Nothing illegal happened but the CEO is stepping down anyway." - Stephen Mack
He's not the CEO, he stepped down in January, before any issues had been raised publicly. He's fully resigning, and from his wife's post on the issue it seems it was related to github staff feeling pressured into working pro-bono on their sideproject. - Not Me
Weird, his wife says he was the CEO in her blog post: https://medium.com/p... - Stephen Mack
And he says he was the CEO: http://tom.preston-werner.com/2014... - Stephen Mack
Oh, you mean he had been the CEO in January, but after that point, he wasn't? I see. - Stephen Mack
He and Chris Wanstranth have swapped back and forth once or twice so they can keep their technical chops up and take breaks. They switched positions in January. Some of the accusations probably went back to the period where he was still CEO, and that was part of their life. - Not Me
Yeah, seems like the investigation denies Julie Ann Horvath's side of the story entirely, but it does seem like they found the other item you mentioned, pressure to work on the charity. - Stephen Mack
I wouldn't even say the investigation entirely denies Horvath's story, partly because both active parties of the primary complaint had been removed, Horvath & Preston-Warner's wife. It just couldn't confirm her story. - Not Me
First sentence, second paragraph: "The investigation found no evidence to support the claims against Tom and his wife of sexual or gender-based harassment or retaliation, or of a sexist or hostile work environment." GitHub seems to be taking the position that Julie Ann Horvath is making it up. - Stephen Mack
Possibly, but most of Horvath's claims were passive-aggressive and personal. So he-said-she-said, or she-said-she-said, seems like it would be something hard to prove after the fact. I can see the investigation not finding evidence, when you factor in the bias, and current vs previous environment. - Not Me
A lot of the allegations in the TechCrunch article (http://techcrunch.com/2014...) shouldn't have been hard to prove. For GitHub to say "no evidence" in their blog post just doesn't seem credible to me. - Stephen Mack
It's true I don't know what the investigation was on, since they had already released the guy who was hitting on her, and had apologized and amended policies about access to non-githubbers. This in the first week, so possibly was outside of the scope. The claims about what took place in front of HR, could be right for both sides. Most of the other claims, seem hard to justify, as... more... - Not Me
I've certainly been in a few confrontations here, as have others, where a growing discomfort influences interpretations. It's quite possible she was feeling attacked, but it wasn't represented or acknowledgable externally. - Not Me
Yeah, there are always two sides. But the blog post just seems too one-sided to me. I don't know anything first-hand and I don't know Julie Ann Horvath at all, but my management experience in resolving conflicts like this has given me some general background, and my instinct is telling me that GitHub's blog post is trying to sweep everything under the rug. It doesn't feel right. - Stephen Mack

It's looking like we lost one of Luke's lovies in the city yesterday. After 3.5 years of keeping track of that thing, I'm so glad we had 2 so we at least have 1 comfort item left. However, I'm not sure Luke will see it that way. :-/
And of course we could buy a new one on eBay for way more than we bought it for: http://m.ebay.com/itm... - Yvonne from FFHound!
Oh no! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
:-( So glad you have a backup one! - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Some little lonely boy was needing a lovie for himself. Luke selflessly donated his lovie for this sad little boy. My story and I am sticking to it. - Janet
Janet- that will be an awesome thing to tell him if the exploratorium doesn't have it. =) - Yvonne from FFHound!
Aw. I hope Exploratorium has it, but if they don't I hope that Luke will cope will with the loss. I love Janet's story. - vicster: full-bodied
They don't have it. =( For some reason it feels like a personal failure... Or like I lost a real pet. Weird. - Yvonne from FFHound!
our oldest, when she was just under a year old, fell in love with a little soft dolly made with a special fabric that you could breathe through soas to prevent asphyxiation. unfortunately, what made it safe also made it both very fragile and impossible to repair. any attempt to sew a tear, however small, closed resulted in massive damage. we immediately set to hunting more of them down and discovered it had only been sold in the US for 2 years! - Big Joe Silence
one by one, we found 3 more in various speciality online auctions (none of them ebay). one of them was over $50. she turned 8 last year and still loves them dearly. the original one now looks like a prop from a Japanese horror film! short version: don't give up hope. - Big Joe Silence

AirBnB for Motorhomes.
That's existed for a long time. There are RV rental companies all over the country that will rent out your RV for you (and let you park it on their lot when you're not using it). My parents did that with the RV they bought in the '80s. The trouble was that the wear and tear was pretty bad. At the end of a couple of years, the RV was basically trashed. - Stephen Mack

Professor suspended for Game Of Thrones shirt that threatened community college kingdom * Newswire * The A.V. Club
"Confirming yet again that the halls of academia are no place for interpreting things, a New Jersey professor was suspended over a Game Of Thrones T-shirt whose tagline--the Daenerys Targaryen quote, "I Will Take What Is Mine With Fire & Blood"--was interpreted by his colleague as a threat. The incident came about after Francis Schmidt, who teaches art and animation at Bergen Community College, posted a photo of his daughter doing a yoga pose in the shirt to his Google+ account, where it was seen by the people who actually use Google+, such as easily riled deans. Said dean reportedly called for an emergency meeting, concerned that this small, unsettlingly agile girl in a T-shirt was Schmidt's way of announcing his intention to claim all the spoils a New Jersey community college has to offer, by force if necessary." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
I mean, it would be maybe something if he wore it to work, but... - Heather, 30k Camper

What the hell is going on with our schools that teachers and administrators feel threatened by a (1) finger gun (2) a GOT t-shirt on a little girl and (3) a science project with the word "gun" in it? - Spidra Webster
I mean, it's not as if he told the dean that he acquired his daughter's shirt by paying the iron price. - Stephen Mack
"where it was seen by the people who actually use Google+, such as easily riled deans." *snerk* - holly #ravingfangirl
I've never seen Game of Thrones, but I would hope that grown-assed adults would assume a child in a t-shirt on a personal site is not a veiled threat to work colleagues. And I'm sure the psychiatrist is going to be thrilled with having to waste their time with a stupid evaluation. - Anika
http://www.northjersey.com/news... - "But revenge appears to be a theme in both the show and Schmidt's life -- he believes the suspension was retaliation for a grievance he had filed earlier after he was denied a sabbatical without explanation about two months before the incident. "This was payback because I filed a grievance," he said."" - Andrew C (✔)
*sigh* Oh FFS. - ronin
IOW, any excuse for those with power to take offence is a good one. same as it ever was. - Big Joe Silence
"Schmidt was suspended without pay and forced to undergo a psychiatric evaluation before being reinstated with a list of other restrictions, he said, such as not wearing clothing with questionable statements and not making disparaging statements about the college. " It would be really hard not to say something about a college with administrators that bone stupid. - Spidra Webster
This is still better than the sheriff's deputy who pulled out his gun because a barking dog "made him fear for his life" (and he accidentally shot himself.) - Victor Ganata from iPhone
then he was kicked in the balls repeatedly and required to never mention it. - Big Joe Silence
" and not making disparaging statements about the college" - if it were me, I'd be making factual statements about the college's handling of this incident and the dean in particular from now until eternity. - Andrew C (✔)

Wrecking crews demolish iconic 'Blue Cube' [San Jose Mercury News] - http://www.mercurynews.com/califor...
Wrecking crews demolish iconic 'Blue Cube' [San Jose Mercury News]
From the article: "In a stealthy operation sometime either Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning -- crews wouldn't say exactly when -- workers started smashing the slabs of the former Onizuka Air Force Station's 'Blue Cube' in a fitting end to a secretive Cold War icon that tracked Soviet satellites for decades. 'I wish I could tell you more,' said Ken Murray, superintendent with contractor C.W. Driver. But he couldn't, or wouldn't. The Onizuka station was shuttered in 2011, a victim of the fifth round of military base closures, with some of its remaining operations transferred to Vandenberg Air Force Base in Southern California. The ceremony marking its closure featured a color guard, a brass band and remarks from a top general, local officials and the widow of the base's namesake before dozens of onlookers." - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet

Young, Black and Frisked by the N.Y.P.D.
"These experiences changed the way I felt about the police. After the third incident I worried when police cars drove by; I was afraid I would be stopped and searched or that something worse would happen. I dress better if I go downtown. I don’t hang out with friends outside my neighborhood in Harlem as much as I used to. Essentially, I incorporated into my daily life the sense that I might find myself up against a wall or on the ground with an officer’s gun at my head. For a black man in his 20s like me, it’s just a fact of life in New York. Here are a few other facts: last year, the N.Y.P.D. recorded more than 600,000 stops; 84 percent of those stopped were blacks or Latinos. Police are far more likely to use force when stopping blacks or Latinos than whites. In half the stops police cite the vague “furtive movements” as the reason for the stop. Maybe black and brown people just look more furtive, whatever that means. These stops are part of a larger, more widespread problem — a... more... - Paul Buchheit from Bookmarklet

It's institutionalized racism. It's when you cross the street with your kids because you see a black or brown guy walking towards you, regardless of how he's dressed or what he's doing.
