Choose how people see your FriendFeed profile Starting today, people who visit your profile will see it in the theme you've chosen. If you'd prefer visitors not to see your theme, you can turn it off on your settings page. You can also choose themes for the groups that you're an admin for (looks like the So You Think You Can Dance admin wasted no time!).

  • FriendFeed API v2: Out of beta, OAuth for installed applications

    Two weeks ago, we launched version 2 of the FriendFeed API in beta. Since then, we've watched how developers have been using the API and collected a lot of their feedback. We've implemented some changes, and now, we're ready to remove the beta label! In addition to removing the beta label, we also added support for using OAuth in applications installed on a user's desktop or device. The way it works is similar to Google's ClientLogin for Installed Applications; read all about it in our API documentation. During the beta period, a number of developers took advantage of the new API to develop…

  • Who is “Big Vaping”: a small slice of the e-cigarette misinformation war

    Doug Groves
    28 Mar 2015 | 9:11 am
    Earlier today, Vox put out an article titled “How Big Vaping is misinforming the public about e-cigarettes“. In it, the author attempts to paint the growing grassroots vaping movement with the same brush as Big Tobacco. Unlike most online news sources, Vox doesn’t have a comment section directly below their articles, so I’m posting this here. The quotes are from the original article. It’s also Saturday morning, and I haven’t had my coffee yet… While the state campaign reminds its citizens that all the Big Tobacco companies also own e-cigarette…

If you’ve washed your Nautilus Mini, you may have come across the problem of a rusted pin, which isn’t a good thing. While the Nautilus Mini is an amazing tank for vaping, the spring itself has a couple of problems that can become an issue for just about any user, if they’re not aware of it. The pin that contacts the battery is fine in its own right. The spring that provides the…

The centerpiece of their booth is a 6-foot tall golden idol of the corpulent magistrate holding a crack pipe and looking decidedly pleased with himself. Says Pastor Morgan Wilkes, when the idol was unveiled on Friday, it created a “psychic overflow; a miracle so big, it could not be contained.” “[Rob Ford] echoes the accolades of what this ministry is about: Lust, fantasy, desire and power.”…

To get me through the next (checks the calendar) 228 days, this week I chose a book that looks back on several decades of Star Wars. Newly released in e-book format, A Galaxy Not So Far Away features seventeen essays by prominent writers, all of them about how much (or little) Star Wars means to them. When this book was first published back in 2002 most of the writers had already seen The Phantom Menace, a…

    Well it’s finally time for us moviegoers to assemble, because Marvel’s Avengers are back in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Once again directed by geek god Joss Whedon, it features the returning Avengers cast that we know and love. This time around an evil android known as Ultron has set his sights on world domination and only The Avengers can stop him, but can they do it before it’s too late? Well duh, they’re the fracking Avengers, of course they can! But along the way we’re given great action, acting, and comedy, all leading into a comic book style movie like no other.

    http://ithoughts.de/downloads/Setup_based_on_SSID.kmmacros This keyboard maestro macro checks if you’ve just arrived at work or at home based on the SSID you connect to, and executes another macro you specify (in my case something that activates / deactivates applications and sets window sizes depending on the number of connected monitors, but it can be something easier, like turn on Skype at work and turn it off at home).

    Spam is the curse of the Internet, where communication costs no time and effort, if it’s automated. And as the is only one big antispam provider (Akismet) that’s built in in WordPress, the most used publishing system of the World, a lot of people use the widely known reactions of the Akismet algorithm to get through their spam messages on blogs in the whole wolrd. This also hits my site of course.

  • Define what defines you

    18 Dec 2013 | 9:27 am
    There are two great things about Twitter: You can choose who to follow and define who you listen to, from all the people on the world who care to share their thoughts. This means you get to decide what your filter-bubble looks like, and it doesn’t have to be identical to your friends and coworkers anymore, as it is for anyone not using Twitter. You can share your thoughts, to make the first point work. You can be a part of the filterbubbles of people you’ll most likely never see, can influence their lives in a (hopefully) positive way, and be someone they can ask for help /…
  • Is there a reason to still have a blog?

    Akku
    8 Dec 2013 | 3:59 am
    No. Not really. Facebook, Twitter, and all the other systems out there do basically the same. But in my opinion there’s still a reason to have a website, where you can put anything you like, without someone censoring it, where you can shut off the comments and likes, where you can fully decide about the layout, pictures, style, and wording. This is some kind of freedom in the digital world. Related Posts: No Related Posts
  • What is a Rating?

    Akku
    7 Dec 2013 | 4:44 am
    A rating is subjective in nature as a single person gives it to “rate” the quality  of something. As if you say “I liked it” or “Well it was average” to “I didn’t like it at all”. A rating is not very differentiated as such, and also very dependent on what you like category-wise as well as how high your expectations are. Highly subjective thing, such a rating. But a rating is also a message to others, a recommendation (or the opposite), expecting that they feel similar to you about certain categories and the expectations you have. For…

  • Trading With a Vendor at a Flea Market

    Flea markets are great places to find unique gift items, antiques, and rare collectibles. Attenders can usually chat with vendors to get reduced prices on the goods they are purchasing, but a little known fact is that trading or even selling goods is also commonplace. For the best way to barter at a flea market, here are a few tips. Research Pricing Ahead of Time Before going to the flea market, it’s a good idea to do a little research.

  • Kind Gestures of Love

    A serious relationship is a strong yet delicate thing. Respect and kindness go a long way. Conversely, thoughtless acts can push an otherwise good partnership to the brink. What can you do to keep your bond healthy? Here’s a hint: the simpliest things are often the most effective. Love Notes Often couples fail to write notes to each other because they get in a routine and seem to forget, but a written declaration of love can go a long way in the busy lives people have. You don’t have to quote Shakespeare, but it doesn’t necessarily hurt. The key to a good love note is being sincere.

    Before Joss Whedon left the Twitter world, he left two messages. One was after the release of his final Marvel movie to the world, and the other was his actual goodbye to his followers and fans. After the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron: “Now I lay me down to sleep I pray the lord my soul to keep If I should die before I wake ‘kay.” His final Twitter goodbye: Thank you to all the people who’ve been so kind and funny and inspiring up here.

    There was a mixed reaction when David Ayer unveiled our first look at 30 Seconds to Mars‘ Jared Leto as the Clown Prince of Crime. Some liked the new Joker look and many downright hated it. A lot of the hate was stemmed from Joker’s overly obvious tattoos. Reports began to spread that there was a chance that the image Ayer released was not the final look of The Joker. There was speculation that new set photos of Jared showed that he did not have any tattoos on his body during breaks in the production. Many believe that this could be a sign that the character would not have them in…

I come bearing posts, since I’ve been sorely neglecting the blog for my new boyfriend, Twitch. I was introduced to my new drug of choice by my evil husband, Ryskill, who has severely underestimated just how addictive this new social network is. Yes, I have bumped it above Twitter (just by a little bit) as my favorite place to be. Now, I turn there for social interaction before anywhere else, and have absolutely LOVED the people…

    Ya I know, it’s Monday. But trying to keep up on these 5 Fandom Friday posts is clearly pointless, so the posts are just gonna kind of happen, randomly and magically, like most good things. Having fandom characters you love and worship is part of the geeky package, and the characters you want to spend time are so much fun to fantasize about. So it’s time to go to the movies, or out for some drinks, or to the movies while smuggling in drinks, with my besties. Here are my top 5 fictional BFF’s from fandoms.

    Imagining the world coming to an apocalyptic ruin, and trying to survive in this new world, has become the new thing people daydream about. So often friends, novels and movies are wishing the world would end to see what it would be like. We live with so much structure, from government to petty office politics, I think it’s a way for us to escape and having it all end at once is the quickest way to go from TPS reports to freedom. In the last 15 years there have been so many end of world scenarios explored one might think the genre would run out. Novels in particular have used this…

Throughout the intervening months, nearly all of Marvel’s regular series will be canceled and replaced with titles detailing the doings on the new patchwork planet. It’s a bold move, like Age of Apocalypse on Pym particles. But will it succeed? Do we find these concepts interesting enough to read about while pressing pause on everything else?

    Kevin Hsu is a sexology researcher based at Northwestern University on the outskirts of Chicago. In 2013 he sought, and received, approval from the Northwestern Institution Review Board (IRB) – an ethics committee that oversees research with human subjects – to study furries. Hsu's research is intended to follow work published by Dr. Anne Lawrence in 2009, which references furries as a group possibly displaying a hypothetical phenomenon associated with fetishistic behaviour named "Erotic Target Location Error". Hsu's hypothesis is that many furries – possibly most – are…

He’ll choose something suitably B-movie and say, “I’ll just put this on for ten minutes, just to see how awful it is”. I mean, WHY!? Why would you do that to yourself? To me? Fast forward to a half an hour later and I’m completely enthralled by what I’m watching. The black hole of terribleness has sucked me in, and…

    “John Wick doesn’t need to speak to you when all he wants to do is shoot everyone in the face.”   John Wick, a former mob hitman, is forced out of retirement in order to track down, and brutally murder, the gangsters who took everything from him. That’s it. That’s the entire storyline. You don’t need to know anything else, but do not let that deter you. Despite the simplicity of the premise and the sometimes sub-standard script, John Wick is an absolute belter of an action flick. Keanu Reeves (The Matrix) stars as the professional killer Wick, who…

    Among the stories Arrow tells beyond the development of more than one superhero is about families. There are blood ties and discovered family, siblings, and the like-family bonds that can form within a team. Some of the most pivotal relationships on Arrow involves parents and children. The show has depicted some positive parental figures who are caring and supportive yet imperfect, some who are not-so-great, and everything in between–parents with great love for their children, but who make damaging choices in their quest to protect their families at all costs. Here is a look at some of…

    If you’ve been on the Internet at all since Avengers: Age of Ultron was released you’ve probably noticed that all is not well in the Marvel fandom. The release of Age of Ultron seemed to cause a massive rift among fans. These tensions reached their boiling point when Director/Writer Joss Whedon deactivated his Twitter account. Not unsurprisingly this led to all kinds of speculation about who is to blame for Whedon’s decision. I think we can all agree that the sheer number of tweets – whether positive or negative – he got in response to Age of Ultron would be overwhelming for…

    Our favorite horror drama is back! I am relatively new to this show, but as a History major in college and an avid lover of the horror genre, Penny Dreadful has quickly become one of my favorites. Although it is not the most historically accurate in consideration of the literature it tries to mirror, it is a fun ride with a lot of mystery and sexual ambiguity that makes it difficult to turn away. I am so glad that it is back with brand new plots to dive into. We open the season immediately after where we left last season: with Ethan in the tavern after his wolf-out massacre. The inspector…

    While the past few seasons have been a war among several Kings, the emphasis has been subtly shifting until it’s become a war among Queens.  This season has been far more female driven than any seasons before it, putting the women we’ve grown to love (or loved to hate) into positions of enormous power that rivals their male counterparts.  I’m honestly rooting for a female dominated end game, with Daenerys in the Iron Throne and Sansa in the North, so I’m incredibly pleased to watch it move in that direction.
