Show all
Let’s just get it out in the open: Being a parent isn’t all sunshine and rainbows, and kids are basically cute little balls of terror. Along the years, there are unfortunate moments that show just what it looks like to be a parent, and it’s not pretty. So take a look at the darker side of parenting – the epic fails, disastrous moments, and nail polish. Say what you will, these are spot-on. - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet
Well, that made me smile! I've definitely experienced more than a few of those. The marker kid who used the walls and pets as canvas? All three of my boys. Parenting is tough! - Jenny H. from Android

I didn't put enough conditioner in my hair this morning and it's flying all up in my face and driving me crazy. I'm about to resort to binder clips.
Pics!! (I might need the inspiration some day...) - WebGoddess
I'm restraining myself from using the binder clips right now. If it gets worse I will post pics. - Marie
I have resorted to putting hand lotion on my frizzy hair in the past. It wasn't too bad, actually, and was a lot better than having my nose tickled. (I had to look up what binder clips are. They're called bulldog clips in England.) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Bulldog clips in the U.S. are different from binder clips. Binder clip: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... Bulldog clip: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... - bentley
I used to use bulldog clips to secure my drawing paper to my easel in art school. What a nice memory! They would be much nicer to use in hair than binder clips. - Marie
P.S. I just totally did the hand lotion thing and it worked. My savior! - Marie
And seeing a bulldog clip from "a more exciting angle" certainly made my day... - walt crawford
bentley: Interesting that the binder clips weren't the ones I saw when I looked on google images. I've used the binder clips here in Canada but I didn't know they were called that, and I don't remember seeing them in England. Marie: I'm glad the hand lotion worked! - WoH: Professor MOTHRA

Hold on, technical difficulty with download. - Micah
Interesting. I thought I'd see what happens on Snow Leopard. It doesn't even let you unzip it. Gives Error 1. (Not complaining, just FYI...) - Spidra Webster
abi ya vindows? brother i uze vindows - Rendetullah
OK. Try re-downloading from: http://wittman.org/ff... - Micah
After downloading from your new link above, unzipping and double-clicking, I get a plain white window with no labels or anything, only the three red-yellow-green buttons. On the menu bar, the word "nightrain" and nothing happens when I click on it. That's all I'm getting. - bentley
Alright. I need to fix the packaging of the app. Be back in 30 min to an hour. - Micah from iPhone
I'm able to download and install just fine, but running I get the "limit exceeded" error. (OS 10.10.2) - Jennifer Dittrich
Ok, good to know the package may be ok. Jenn, regarding the limit exceeded, I'm not surprised because it's basically running the same way behind the scene's as the bare script. I will try to add a memory setting adjustment that may or may not make a difference, but we'll see. - Micah
Ah, that makes sense. I figure I'm going to have to basically dump most of my feed to backup the rest :/ - Jennifer Dittrich
it's working for me - Mike Nencetti
vindvs lazim admin duy beni - Rendetullah
I redownloaded and I'm still getting nothing. But I already have a backup (no Discussion), so don't worry about fixing it for me if it works for everyone else. - bentley
ahahah abi ya admin duy beni mi yahasha. micah turkish windows users are wondering if you are planning to create a windows version as well. - Alfonker Tapir
Alfonker, yes, that's the plan. The base application is supposed cross-platform, and I'll be trying to confirm it will work tonight. Stay tuned. - Micah from iPhone
The second download worked great for me on 10.9.5. - Meg VMeg
It appears to be working, but I'm not sure where it's downloading to? - Alix May
Yeah, and I already forgot where it downloaded to :( - Meg VMeg
It tells you when it finishes running. Otherwise open app and just click Show Path button in upper right corner, then scroll below to see message. - Micah from iPhone
It just gives me a blank line. - Alix May
yes odd. I can see the files in terminal, but not in Finder, even after showing hidden files. - Mike Nencetti
HOW TO MANUALLY FIND YOU DATA DIRECTORY: Ctrl-Click the ffexp.app icon > Show Package Contents > then drill down through directories: Contents > MacOS > www. In www you should have ff_stream_<your username>.json — this is your raw data. Also: html_output folder has all your HTML files if you converted the data with the app. The ff_media folder has all the images and attachment files. - Micah
thanks! - Mike Nencetti
❤ Thank you so much, Micah. - Alix May
Thank you! - Meg VMeg
FYI: Deleted previous downloads, downloaded it again, unzipped, double-clicked. Still getting only the blank nightrain screen like before. - bentley
Ok so I ran it for the past hour and it pretty much did the same thing as when I ran Claudio's script directly last week. Namely it starts repeating itself after the 10101st row. Which I thought I had read somewhere that they had fixed. And looking at the script version here, you are a couple of point versions behind (1.2 vs the current 1.5). So I had to manually quit the php processes through Activity Monitor and never got to check out the conversion process. - rønin
It's running now - I had to make my feed public (even with the remote thingie, it didn't want to go) - was considering doing this anyway later, so we'll see how far it gets. At the moment, I'm seeing a lot of image files getting saved, so that's something :D - Jennifer Dittrich
Jenn, oh that's good. - Micah from FFHound!
Ronin, I'm updating the code to Claudio's current version, may be out tomorrow. Windows version also almost there. The 10K limit issue isn't likely to change, however. - Micah from FFHound!
So, if it is looping, how do you tell? It's still enumerating pages, but it looks like it's recording the same image (and skipping it) every few pages. [I'm in the 250's at the moment, and I've reached the end of my feed in HTML at 35,670.] - Jennifer Dittrich
To avoid looping, download the 1.5 ffexp.PHP script. When it detects a loop, stops automatically. - Ubikindred
Ah, gotcha. I'll stop what I've got running tonight, and retry tomorrow evening. - Jennifer Dittrich
(For the reached maximum allowed memory limit, in xampp/windows it's sufficient to increase the maximum allowed memory size from the default value to an higher value, i.e. 2048 MB, in php.ini. Unfortunately I don't know what is the configuration file in MacOS X environment) - Ubikindred
(it's php.ini lowercase, important in a case sensitive environment; the path depends on which php you are running, the one coming with the OS or the one provided with MAMP) - vic
(Sorry, for any ununderstandable reason, my corrector writes PHP instead of php) - Ubikindred
Holla at me if there's ever a Windows version? - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
The script is universal, you must have a working php engine to run the script (i.e. in Windows the esiest way is to install xampp, putting the script in the c:\xampp\www\php folder and running it in a DOS prompt - Ubikindred
I plan on having the Windows version out night. - Micah from FFHound!
(Sorry, I was talking about Claudio's php script naturally) - Ubikindred
No problem, understood - my version is still essentially his script with an interface and php environment wrapper. - Micah from FFHound!
New version (v0.6) for OS X released: Download: http://wittman.org/ff... - has Claudio's most recent script version (1.5) integrated in now. - Micah
Ooooh. I'll give that a go in just a sec. - Jennifer Dittrich
Rats. Still can't use it on Snow Leopard. I'm going to have to see if I can get Claudio's script working again. - Spidra Webster
I'm running it now - thanks, Micah! - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
...69 pages after 18 mins and still going - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
..and done on 71 pages - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
It goes back to 2011. I can see up to p. 34 in the html directory. Are the other pages somewhere else? - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
It worked, I got 50 pages (so, about a year.) More or less what I expected. I'll likely do a Tumblr entries purge at some point and re-run, which should get me a lot more of the other entries. - Jennifer Dittrich
Trying with the new one. The old one supposedly backed up 2000+ pages, but nothing in the html directory. - Alix May
Alix, try re-dowloading the app (it's now version 0.6). I fixed an issue with the HTML file rendering. Note: even when no HTML files are created (like backup only mode), your raw data can be there nonetheless. - Micah from FFHound!
I dl'ed and re-ran it again last night. Looks good, I haven't had a chance to look into the data but it did convert and finish instead of looping. - rønin
I downloaded and ran it again without images, and it backed up 102, but only converted to html up to p. 50 - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Looking a the raw data json data, it goes back to Jan 2011, so the early years must be beyond what can be downloaded for me. Edit: 50 pages x 200 posts per page =10,000 posts (which seems to be the max allowed). - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
I have back to 2010. ❤ (also 50 pages for me, Higlet) - Alix May

Today at court I was given until June 17 to be out & turn over the keys. I will not have to pay the owner anything if we're out by that date.
He's forbidden from giving a bad reference but since I never had a lease with him I won't be putting him on any applications anyway. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
He kept trying to badtalk me to the judge. She'd ask him something and he'd say "she's a conflicted woman" (non native English speaker, not sure what he meant there) before answering the question. he said "she won't let me come in to do work" but he's never asked to come in our unit for anything. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
My attorney was all, "this guy's crazy" and gave me a list of behaviors she wants me to call her about, like he was told to give me 24 hr notice before doing work, she said she's seen people call and schedule back to back to back random jobs, harassing tenants for whole weeks at a time. Other little tactics they're known to try. She said call her immediately if he starts any of it. She actually said "there's something wrong with him". - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Is this the outcome you were hoping for? - DB, Lil LB's Dad
It's about the best outcome I could've gotten, yes. I still don't have a place to move to, but having 3 more months helps. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
hmm, I'm trying to figure out what he meant by 'conflicted women.' Maybe 'trouble maker'? I dunno. But, I'm glad you got some more time. And a good attorney. - AHnix (Anna Haro)
Bitchass is about to be doing major sewer work & installing a second driveway. Won't paint the house & give me a lease, but he's about to dig up the street and there's four. 20 ft pipes waiting in the backyard. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I was thinking maybe confrontational? But we've only had three conversations. I did tell off Maria's husband - remember her, the realtor & notary? She was there with the owner today - told him he needed to watch what he says to me, when he & his crew did all that mess making around thanksgiving. But this guy wasn't there, he'd only know about that secondhand. The previous owners are... more... - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
My darling Vicster gave me a ride to court <3 <3 After it was done I bumped into Angie & my nephew, and got a ride home in my nephew's brand new car. Everything worked out and about 48% of my anxiety's gone :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Glad I was able to help! :-) - vicster.
Glad things are a bit more settled, and you have some time to plan and find somewhere that is going to work for you. <3 - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
I'm going to miss this about FF. FFeeps helping each other. <3 I'm crying. Also, glad things are doing better! - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

This is a sensitive subject, and I fear that I'll mishandle it. One big difference between Montreal and Victoria? From the moment I stood in line to take a cab from the airport, to the taxi itself, to the caretaker of my AirBnB, to the students I passed in the hallway, to the fella at the corner store: I haven't met a single white person.
Victoria? Kinda the opposite. I could go for days and only come across Ye Olde Caucasians. - Brent Schaus
I get it. Hard to avoid sounding like the well-meaning white person when making this kind of comment. I won't speak for your experience, but for me, whenever I am in a city that's very ethnically and culturally diverse, I feel much more comfortable. Maybe it's because I grew up in a very diverse community and that says "home" to me more than anything else. - Corinne L
I like it... it feels like things are in perspective. - Brent Schaus
Nice! - Corinne L
What other races do you see? - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

If you had the holodeck make a replicator, could that fake replicator make permanent objects?
Only if you use your third wish to make it. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Only if the fool holodeck programmer used global variables. - Micah from FFHound!
Micah: so, yes. - Andrew C (✔)
If you eat something while in the holodeck, and leave the holodeck, that food disappears from your stomach? This seems like a great weight loss device. - Amit Patel
Michael Moriarty's Lose Weight The Holodeck Way, now in stores for 29.99 credits. (tangent: ST's concept of money is some garbage. http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki... ) - Andrew C (✔)
You know, I never pondered the hazards of holodeck programming and not understanding scope correctly or forgetting to properly delineate your namespaces before. - Victor Ganata
Also, on your tangent, I've started thinking of Federation credits as being similar to most MMORPG currency. Sure, you still need it to buy things, but it is so ridiculously easy to get a hold of vast amounts of it and all common quality goods are available at such ridiculously cheap, fixed prices that you really never have to worry about what your balance is. #UnnecessarilyComplicatedHeadCanon - Victor Ganata
The objects created by this replicator could only exist within the holodeck though. Unless you get a holo-emitter like the Doctor on Voyager. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
Victor, that's more or less what I was thinking (currency wise.) Banks' Culture isn't too different. Yeah, you need to trade stuff, and sometimes that's currency, but not for the majority of transactions (food, shelter, clothing, health care, etc.) unless you're going somewhere outside their control. - Jennifer Dittrich
Zu: I mean, scale it back a level. Let's say the holodeck creates an holo-artisan. Give it a real whittling knife or have the holodeck make one, I don't care. Then give it a real piece of wood from outside the holodeck. Once the program has finished, the wood is still carved. OK, by extension, take the holodeck replicator and feed it whatever grey goo raw material a real replicator takes. - Andrew C (✔)
When you put it like that, it could absolutely make real objects. The real replicators make stuff from stuff and will recycle stuff you put in them into other stuff so, yeah, your idea has merit. :) - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
I am sure there is a way to hack the holodeck so that holomatter can make irreversible changes to real matter (you probably have to disable some safety protocol or something) but that's a hell of a way to spend your time in one of the holosuites at Quark's ;) - Victor Ganata
When I take over the galaxy, I'm putting all my enemies in an infinite recursion of holodecks. - Andrew C (✔)
I do wonder, also, how much extra energy it would require to have a holodeck replicator operate to produce real things vs. a real replicator. Even if it is possible, it might be a lead-into-gold sort of situation -- even if you can, the process might be so expensive as to render it moot. - Jennifer Dittrich
Now then, where to get the raw material? It's not self-sustaining if you need to get the raw material from elsewhere. So clearly, the first thing your holodeck needs to make is a zero-point-energy generator, which already exists in the Star Trek universe: http://sto.gamepedia.com/Console... - Andrew C (✔)
Ah, a microsingularity. Just what every entertainment device needs! :D - Victor Ganata
Can the holodeck create a hologram of an item so powerful that it cannot be replicated? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Be careful with the holodeck, kids. Remember what happened when Geordie slipped and asked for an adversary smart enough to defeat Data? - Holly's favorite Anna
"There are many discrepancies between episodes pertaining to the abilities and limits of holodeck technology. For example, in "Encounter at Farpoint", the young Wesley Crusher remains wet with holodeck water, after exiting into a corridor. In "Elementary, Dear Data", a piece of paper given to Data by James Moriarty is able to be carried outside of the holodeck and into a hall, but upon... more... - Andrew C (✔)
And Anna, no, I don't remember that episode, but that sounds awesome. - Andrew C (✔)
I bet you it all has to do with object constructors and destructors and the choice of programming language. I bet some people were still writing holodeck programs in C and forgot to call free(). Or sometimes the garbage collector leaks and you can carry objects outside of the confines of the holodeck :D - Victor Ganata
It's basically a giant games console; of course it was programmed in C/C++. - Andrew C (✔)
Who knew memory leaks could have such dire consequences? :D And you know someone totally failed at encapsulation when instances of Data started leaking into the main computer. - Victor Ganata
Isn't Geordie's request the origin story for Moriarty? :D - Victor Ganata
It's a self-contained starship. The raw material for the replicators comes from … the sewage system. - Amit Patel
Now that I think about it, microsingularities are what power Romulan FTL drives and cloaking fields. I thought they were illegal in the Federation? - Victor Ganata
Oh, everything's illegal in the Federation. Microsingularties are illegal. Societal uplift is illegal. Using the holodeck as a meth lab is illegal. (that last one: TREKKING BAD. ... sorry.) - Andrew C (✔)
OMG "Trekking Bad" is brilliant. Wait, is Ketracel White the name of the drug or the dealer…? - Victor Ganata
"Why can't I replicate Ketracel White?" — this sounds like something that @RikerGoogling would post - Victor Ganata
Also, just today @RikerGoogling posted "make real alcohol" https://twitter.com/RikerGo... - Andrew C (✔)
"Holodeck, run program Make Time Machine Go Back In Time And Destroy Inventor of Holodeckic technology." "You mean John?" "Yeeees, his name is probably John." - Micah from FFHound!

The No-Stilettos Rule: My Approach As A Woman Creating Scifi Book Covers - http://io9.com/no-stil...
The No-Stilettos Rule: My Approach As A Woman Creating Scifi Book Covers
"Although target audience affects all books, I'm going to dive deeper into one genre where it is absolutely critical—Urban Fantasy . This is the genre where we most frequently show characters on the covers, and the target audience is overwhelmingly women. It's also the genre where the covers get the most abuse for stereotypically having a hot woman on the cover with a gun, a bared midriff, and a bad tramp stamp tribal tattoo. The fans roll their eyes. the authors complain. People even make fun of the covers for charity . So what's going on here? If women are the target audience, how are these books ending up with objectified covers? I think there's a lot of overlap with similar issues in how women are portrayed in comics and gaming. However, as I said, the target audience is primarily women. So it sets aside the whole aspect of comics and gaming historically being a male-dominated media for now." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"First, Urban Fantasy is primarily a genre of wish fulfillment. There's a clearly defined hero, and you are following them through an adventure where you insert yourself into their eyes and experience their story, their feelings, their romance...and of course their run-ins with the supernatural. (Hey this is SFF, after all.) The hero should be sexy. But they should be sexual, not... more... - Jessie
"It was while working on these covers specifically (and yes, watching Supernatural doing research) when it all clicked for me. A hero character on the cover needs to be both "sexy I want to be" for the fans of that gender and also "sexy I want to $%^!#" for the fans of that sexual orientation. And the key, again, is agency. I kid about being a big Supernatural fan but that show hits... more... - Jessie
....I deeply and aggressively question the notion that the figure on the cover art needs to be "sexual" at all. - Soup in a TARDIS
I can see it being relevant if a big part of urban fantasy is the relationship between the main character and the sexy bf/gf (I don't read much urban fantasy so this is just based on the little bit I've seen). But outside of that, yeah, not really important. - Jessie
I don't read a ton of urban fantasy either, but what I have read has not led me to believe it is, as a genre, basically romance with magic or scifi thrown in. I know I am more easily annoyed by this whole everything-but-be-about-pairing-up issue than most people (this is literature people, not a fucking ark) but, ugh, it genuinely drives me batty. - Soup in a TARDIS
As a mainly e-book reader, I rarely get to see covers. But I really like the Seanan McGuire series of October Daye books. http://seananmcguire.com/toby... The covers there are nice and not overly sexualized from my POV. Buts the covers are not the reason why I read these books, its the content and story. Suggestions and referals from others gets me to read books more then anything else. - Me
The funny part to me is that there's urban fantasy and sexxxay urban fantasy, but both often end up getting lumped in together. You explore a lot of the same themes in the Dresden Files and Hollows books, but Rachel Morgan is more sexualized than Harry Dresden and there's more romance and sex as a central plot point in the Hollows books themselves. Both have them, but in one they're emphasized a lot more than the other. - Jennifer Dittrich

I don't always reformat hard drives, but when I do, I spend a ridiculous amount of time deciding between case-insensitive journaled HFS+ or case-sensitive journaled HFS+.
It's a sensitive subject. - Micah from iPhone
Last time I tried case-sensitive (this was years ago), bad things happened. So I just stick w/the default case-insensitive now. - rønin
as much as I want to do the right UNIX thing, you should stick with case-insensitive. For example, Adobe products refuse to install on case-sensitive HFS+. - Jonathan Disher
Yeah, on the pro side, case-insensitive is the default setting. On the con side, I once formatted a hard drive with case-sensitive HFS+ years and years ago and now I have a bunch of mp3 and aacs that only differ from one another due to capitalization. - Victor Ganata
This is one thing I still can't forgive Apple and Adobe for. - Brian Johns
As Johnathan stated, lots of apps don't like Case-sensative Journaled. - Me

MS is trying to rebrand it and hoping nobody notices. It won't be called Internet Explorer when Windows 10 comes out this summer. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
so, in effect, it is NOT dead. - Big Joe Silenced
Also, it will live on the computers of anyone who doesn't upgrade to Windows 10. - John (bird whisperer)
Of course, that's part of why they're trying to give Windows 10 away to most users (even unlicensed ones.) - Jennifer Dittrich
OK, so it's only mostly dead. My understanding is that in addition to not calling it IE in Win 10, they're also not using Trident anymore. - Victor Ganata
The quote I read on The Verge was "It will still be in the pipes of the operating system." - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Ah, I see: Microsoft is killing off the Internet Explorer brand - IE will live on, but only as plumbing for Windows - 2015 Mar 17 http://www.theverge.com/2015... - Victor Ganata
LOL, is this a real quote? Or am I missing irony/sarcasm here? "We’ll continue to have Internet Explorer, but we’ll also have a new browser called Project Spartan, which is codenamed Project Spartan." - Victor Ganata
Hah, Microsoft is totally mining Halo, huh? First Cortana, and now Spartan. (OK, I don't actually know if they're referencing the SPARTAN Project from Halo, but it amuses me to believe so.) - Victor Ganata
Here is the deal. They want everyone to move to a new, modern browser. They will ship that with Windows 10. IE will still be available and likely continue to be used by enterprise customers. There are too many applications that rely on IE to just dump it for them. Everyone else, it's a clean start with a new browser which does not have a name yet. - Eric - Final Countdown
They will not be giving out Windows 10 to pirated users of other versions of Windows. That was cleared up today. - Eric - Final Countdown
Yeah we're dealing with IE hell right now at work. Just now moving people to 9. Found out last week that one of our departments needs to be moved to 10 pronto because a vendor they work with will no longer support anything less than 10 starting next month. Then of course there's the whole no support for anything less than 11 starting next January. I have a feeling Microsoft is gonna blink on that one though. Ala the XP support deadline. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
We are trying to get our desktop people to upgrade from 8. And our Java runtime from version 6. - Eric - Final Countdown
The name Internet Explorer doesn't poll well (go figure). - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Don't get me started on Java. Our boss won't let us pull the trigger on upgrading that.We're so far behind it's not even funny. Then if we get hit via an exploit folks will be looking at my team with the side eye saying "WHY HAVEN'T YOU UPGRADED JAVA IN FOREVER?!?!?!" - DB, Lil LB's Dad
We are waiting on our "Oracle developers" to just test the new version. That version 6 is so full of security holes. Might as well throw DVDs of our data on the sidewalk. - Eric - Final Countdown
IE is dead! Long live IE! - Stephan Planken from iPhone
I get to try to figure out how to implement IE11 with Enterprise mode in our environment. That should be fun. We (I mostly) recommended working on transitioning to IE 11 shortly after I started as a contractor last fall. We were told no just focus on getting everybody up to 9. Now 5 months later the sky is falling and we need to start working up a plan to get everybody to 11. I wanted to say "I TOLD YOU WE NEEDED TO DO THIS MONTHS AGO!" but refrained. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
"It just so happens that your friend here is only MOSTLY dead. There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive." - Victor Ganata
So... IE is in the witness protection program? - Andrew C (✔)
11 is actually growing on me. It's a good browser. I use both at work. Still mostly just Chrome at home though. Only use IE when something isn't working in Chrome (likely due to an extension blocking it) when I don't feel like troubleshooting. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
IE11 is good. I just received a ticket request some group policy today for compatibility and NTLM that made me get up from my desk and leave for the day it was so wrong. I'm having a moment about IE today too. - Eric - Final Countdown
It's a bit disconcerting when I switch over to IE and get confronted with a zillion ads. I've got all that stuff shutdown in Chrome. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
I use uBlock in Chrome. I went to a newspaper site in IE and it must have taken 30 seconds to load the front page and then popped up a video ad. Seriously, this is why. - Eric - Final Countdown

Overheard in the hallway: "Don’t feel bad. I can wait. I’ll do my kegel exercise." O.o
