To go with their cappuccino flavored potato chips, Lays is also cinnamon bun flavored chips. Finally, breakfast can have fried potatoes.

JEALOUS! - MoTO: Team Marina
WII TIME! - Eivind
It's six and my biological clock says it's time to get up. Perhaps I can awake Sophie and ask of she wants to play the Wii? :) - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
Barry: jealous of the Wii or the day off? (This is my second day off this year, it's been crazy busy at work.) - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
Of the day off. Even my days off have been full, lately. - MoTO: Team Marina

Hmm. How high should I get this tonight? 30k? 35k? 40k?

First day of school meant I could walk the kids there (and return home). Then I walked to the Google shuttle, walked a bit to lunch (and back), and then, on a lark, I decided to time walking the Steven's Creek Trail home from Google. It took one hour and forty minutes to do a bit over 7 miles. - Louis Gray
So if I want to get home at 5, I just have to leave work at 3:20. :) - Louis Gray
Not too worried, Anna. - Louis Gray

Wow. How are your feet today? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
All is well. I've broken 50k twice, so 33k is fine. Over my 12k goal today too. - Louis Gray
"Our manager came up with a game to amuse ourselves at these meetings that he called Bonehead Bingo. Bonehead was a term some engineers used to describe someone doing something lacking thought or common sense. Every Toolbox meeting our manager handed out bingo cards with nine squares, some of which had the names of people pre-filled in on the squares—these were the most common offenders asking a lot of silly questions during the project meetings." - Cristo

Accidentally called 911 one night with this when I was home for a week or so from school. Had the dialer set to use 9 to get an outside line (which we needed at school), then I must have accidentally set it to dial 11 instead of just 1 before the area code. It detected I was not in the local area code I usually used to connect to the Internet, so it dialed 9-11-304-, then the dial-up... more... - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

Phase I testing means we're not even sure whether this won't kill you instantaneously as we ramp up the dosing (although presumably enough of the lab animals survived to suggest that it's *probably* OK.)
Trying to deploy a vaccine that's only in Phase I trials during a massive epidemic? They're gonna blame you for anything that goes wrong. - Victor Ganata
Since it's a vaccine, it's going to be most effective in people who *aren't* already infected (which might be a little difficult to deploy if you're in an area that has good reason not to trust Westerners injecting people with substances they aren't sure won't kill you.) There might be some efficacy in injecting people who are already sick, but the time course of Ebola doesn't really give you much time to develop a robust immune response. - Victor Ganata
So if you inject an uninfected person and they die, you are probably screwed. - Victor Ganata

Went to Target for the first time in a few years. It seems to have moved a lot closer to WalMart since I was away. Granted I haven't been in a WalMart in a decade so maybe there is still a decent spread.

Walked into daycare this morning and there was nobody there - no kids, no parents, no staff. Emily freaked out. "Where are all the friends? They all go home?"
Turned out they were having an emergency lockdown drill and were all locked in a room furthest from the front of the building. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Emily was relieved at first and then acted pissed off, haha. - Melly - #TeamMarina

It's amazing any iphone app works at all.. What a mess. It's pretty clear nobody had embedded system programming experience when they started all this.
Extension by inserting code into a template is just really bad design: - (BOOL) application:( UIApplication *) application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:( NSDictionary *) launchOptions { self.window = [[ UIWindow alloc] initWithFrame:[[ UIScreen mainScreen] bounds]]; // Override point for customization after application launch - Todd Hoff
Weak / Strong pointers is a crazy responsibility for programmers to handle. It's impossible when using tasks. - Todd Hoff
Chaining initializers is more bad design through excessive coupling: self = [super init]; - Todd Hoff
The lifecycles of when objects are created and when methods are created is implicit. I can't tell by looking when things happen. In other words, the dynamic behaviour of the code is not clear at all. - Todd Hoff
MVC. Love it hate it, put everything in the controller. - Todd Hoff
Generally I'm against making the programmer run a compiler in their head to understand what is actually getting called. So though property seems like a good idea it makes very hard to deduce when reading code what will be called when an assignment happens. - Todd Hoff
Cell reuse by a reuse identifier is kludgy and error prone. Why does it need to own the memory? - Todd Hoff
String based selectors are used all over the place. These are not typed so are large source of run time errors when they shouldn't be. - Todd Hoff
The compiler doesn't check for methods in the interface that aren't implemented? It's a runtime error? Wow. - Todd Hoff
Seems odd to create a view controller and then give controller of the memory to the navigation controller. Seem like unnecessary memory allocs/deallocs. - Todd Hoff
In example code I see the use of static variables inside functions. That's bad style. It's more invisible magic code. - Todd Hoff
You can't test anything like the full functionality in the simulator. Beacon stuff? No. Camera? No. The interfaces should be accessible so someone could at least try to write an advanced simulator. - Todd Hoff

I spent 30 minutes this afternoon listening to this toy say, "Peek a boo! I see you!" over and over and over and over and over and over. I get some sort of prize for not punting it out the back door, right?

Yvonne Renee
Maybe this makes me a bad person, but I'm so sick of the ice bucket challenge. I literally told my cousin 'bite me' when he challenged me on fb. I donate my money where and when I can, and usually to breast cancer research since that's the disease that's hit me and my friends the hardest. It's like a chain letter that's invaded my fb feed HOURLY!
I am of this same opinion. So tired of it. - Lisa L. Seifert from iPhone
I'm participating in the "Ice? F*ck it!" challenge, which involves ignoring this trend. :-) - YvonneM
My east coast family is making me sound like a villain, like I want people to die from ALS. And they are incredibly insensitive to the drought situation here. =( - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
These things are a double edged sword. On the one hand, yay for awareness, but on the other are people who don't want to film themselves dumping ice water on their heads. - Eric
This one has weird double-edge, though. If you pour water over your head, you don't have to donate. - Victor Ganata
This was my response to my cousins: I appreciate how passionate you are, but you do realize I'm not saying not to donate to ALS. And it's not just one rainy season. It's the worst drought in decades. You try not flushing your toilet to save a few gallons a day and then watch people dump that over their heads repeatedly day after day. It hurts. I guess we can agree to disagree on the method. - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
The challenge is you either donate $100 or dump ice water on your head + donate $10. Hence people do the ice bucket+$10 part. I'm a bit over it too. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
I haven't paid much attention to this but you are definitely not a bad person. This trend reminds me of all those cryptic FB posts about bra colors or other nonsense that was supposed to promote breast cancer awareness. Donating time or money to causes is so much more productive IMO. - Corinne L
Sad thing is most people thinking the ice allows them to skip the donation. I was actually considering disabling my FB until this goes away. If I am tagged I will take my donation to my local food bank and help a few poor souls. - Janet
I'm going to help my cousin's daughter do one today. It sure is a waste of water. We're going to try to do it over some plants. - Rodfather from Android
Good onya, Rodfather. I've definitely thought that if people are going to do it, they should do it over plants that need it. - Spidra Webster
Most people aren't including the "Dump and still donate $10" part on the challenge. In fact, for months, it circulated for random charities with a $25 donation required if you skipped the challenge and no donation if you did it. It only changed once someone acquired it for ALS (and yes, it was acquired for ALS, it did not originate as an ALS fundraising meme). I heavily dislike it for a... more... - Hookuh Tinypants

Ex-NFL ref Mike Carey found Redskins name offensive, asked off games | FOX Sports
"“The league respectfully honored my request not to officiate Washington,” Carey said. “It happened sometime after I refereed their playoff game in 2006, I think.” “It just became clear to me that to be in the middle of the field, where something disrespectful is happening, was probably not the best thing for me,” Carey said. “Human beings take social stances,” he said. “And if you’re respectful of all human beings, you have to decide what you’re going to do and why you’re going to do it.” Carey, the first African American to referee a Super Bowl, explained that to him the backlash against the name is warranted. “I know that if a team had a derogatory name for African Americans, I would help those who helped extinguish that name,” Carey told the Post. “I have quite a few friends who are Native Americans. And even if I didn’t have Native American friends, the name of the team is disrespectful.”" - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
Yeah, the qualifier at the end... not necessary. - MoTO: Team Marina
He probably included it because the team brass keep releasing polls that indicate aboriginals in the area have no issue with the name. - Soup in a TARDIS from FFHound!

I'm running out of time to launch my "Take the Top Sticker Off First: How to Open a New CD" remedial class.
For real, I once met a woman in a signing line at Bumbershoot who cracked the case because she hadn't taken the sticker off... then said that happens to her _every time_. I was too flummoxed to say anything, and to this day I regret it. - Andrew C (✔)
I have one of those little thingers with a blade inside that will cut the plastic wrapper and the top sticker at the same time. Love it. I can pull the sticker off from the unstuck bit without any glue residue (usually). That almost never works if you pull it off from the "pull" tab. - Holly's favorite Anna
The very first CD I bought was problematic. The checkout clerk at Meijer's didn't remove the store security case before putting the CD in the bag. I found out when I got home and I just thought it was how CDs came. I tried and I tried and I finally broke through the security case, but the CD case itself also cracked. I figured I'd just done it wrong. - Betsy
