Retweeted by Dale McGladderyDamn, I hope this gets fixed quickly: 0-day bug in fully patched OS X comes under active exploit to hijack Macs County fans: A twitter account to help get your fix of Opus, Milo, Steve and gang. #squee Toronto movie peeps, I’m envious.

In other news, the @wordpress response to the 4.2.3 release problems ( seems lacking so far.Installing WP table plugin -> WP update -> broken shortcodes -> investigation -> update revert -> lost morning. Some days I hate technology.So. Frustrating. WordPress has this great built-in media handling but you can’t add/edit tables in the editor!?! WTF.I'm not the biggest Trekker but you gotta love this!

@citizenstewart @dale42 As a teacher, I definitely agree with this statement. Even to admit that there are bad teachers is hard for some.

Retweeted by Dale McGladderyThis American Life’s Audio Hackathon I love that content producers are jumping in to influence the technology!@HeidiW_ @rhipratchett But who is Sam’s Sam?I don't think all teachers fail us. But I think real teachers are far too apologetic about the ones that do, and their loyalty is misplaced.
Retweeted by Dale McGladderyThis was a fun listen, but how does being anti-bad behaviour make your anti-captialist?
@MinorMogul Love that movie. “I've come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass... and I'm all out of bubblegum.” Sad to see him go.Sorry to repeat myself, but today is a very, very, very good day. The VSV #Ebola vaccine works - and very well.

@ReneeStephen On multiple occasions I’ve had the Pantheon control panel lie about website state.Remember when “citizen journalism” was THE thing? It didn’t turn out as expected, but citizens have become part of news reporting.Do mainstream news outlets have a moral obligation to citizen journalists? this @cbc piece on farm marketing boards interesting Would love to see more details on points 1 and 3.@soundcloud Why doesn’t your embed widget have a volume control? Super annoying.

ANT-MAN was fun. The physics were crap, but I didn’t care. Great summer popcorn movie for beating the heat.@ReneeStephen OMG, so true of websites in general. They ARE like puppies. @Jermolene@bmann Which isn’t to minimize the community governance aspect, which I find fascinating. But as you say subtle, and I’m not informed on.@bmann Victory in the sense it was relatively easy to try different approach. If closed source, io.js would have been difficult/impossible.Not a node.js user, but this looks like an Open Source victory.

Hey all! Remember this next time you realize the animated gif wasn't such a good idea after all. Or is that just me? @sillygwailo Crossing my fingers I remember /collapse the next time I need it!Twice this week I’ve walked home from Lonsdale Quay up Lonsdale hill. Go me! I don’t expect this burst of enthusiasm to last ;)In other words, watching INSIDE OUT was not a core memory….Finally caught INSIDE OUT. It was fun. Maybe too many expectations from hype, not in my top 3 Pixar movies.@sillygwailo Collapsable GIF would be nice. Or ability to stop an animated GIF from repeating at some point. @SlackHQIn the office alone today, there’s (fake) hardwood floors, and I have "Old Time Rock & Roll” playing in my head. #classicmoviesceneWish auto link preview in @skype and @SlackHQ was selectable per link. Animated gifs in chat channel making me motion sick. :( Also privacy.I’m quickly coming to the conclusion that automatic link preview in personal chat is bad. I’m looking at you @skype and @SlackHQ.
@ReneeStephen A "a lovecraftian dimensional portal”, that’s awesome. The bug is PHP5.5 broke this, right? #annoyedeldergodsAn interesting read. I wonder, would a diverse tech team avoid this? The Quiet Racism of Instagram Filters consequences. Because Skype & Slack fetch pasted URLs for preview info, you can't send 1 time links without 1st obfuscating them.
The fact she wasn’t aware of the congratulations ad fuels my cynicism about the things politicians say.I believe she didn’t personally write the congrats and hope someone at that level delegates. So a staffer needs training or firing.Re Joyce Murray & sobriety ad: Anyone else find it disingenuous she sent congrats for event she wasn’t aware of?@counti8 Have you heard about ? Very cool transportation story.And yet this kind of behaviour is practically celebrated in American Pie and other movies is no Internet of Things, only other people's computers in your house.
Retweeted by Dale McGladderyPolice language like “fatally wounding both men” is bull shit. Can we just call it for what it is, “killing both men”. #plainenglish@PortmanDoe :) And here I thought the dizziness was because I was tired.
