True colors

I should not read Lamergate related stuff Before Coffee... actually, no -- I just should not read Lamergate stuff at all. When you think the bar couldn't possibly get any lower: NAMBLA.

Yesterday, +Wil Wheaton's wife donated a dollar (up to $1000) to Anita Sarkesian's work for every angry GamerGate tweet directed at her. The limit was reached in minutes. +John Scalzi matched. (as apparently did others: http://www.themarysue.com/anne-wheaton-feminist-frequency/)

In retaliation, a GamerGater is donating $2000 to NAMBLA. No joke, GamerGaters are LITERALLY supporting pedophiles in their frothing rage.

For all of my trans friends and family, visible and not

It is being mooted about the internet that today is Trans Visibility Day. For my many near-and-dears who don't choose to be visible, I get you -- and I hope after reading the following, everyone else will too.  For those of you who are out, thank you for being the vanguard of change that will make it easier for all human beings to just be themselves.

News you can use: how full is your Google storage allotment?

Check your Google storage!

You have 15 GB of free storage to share across Google Drive, Gmail, and Google+ Photos.

If you use Google Apps at work or school, you have at least 30 GB of storage.
While you may have a lot of files and folders in your Google Drive, only items that you've synced or uploaded use storage space.

Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides or items shared with you don’t count toward your storage space.


Items that count toward your storage limit

➤ Gmail: All the messages and attachments in your mail, including those in your Spam and Trash folders.

➤ Drive: Files you’ve stored in Drive, like PDFs, images, and videos. Anything you’ve made with Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides won’t count toward your storage limit.

➤ Google+ Photos: Only photos over 2048x2048 pixels and videos longer than 15 minutes count toward your storage limit.

If you exceed your storage limit, you'll receive warnings and you'll need to free up storage as soon as you can. Otherwise, you won’t be able to sync or upload additional items to your Drive or add photos to Google+.
After a period of time, incoming messages to your Gmail account will be returned to the sender and you won’t be able to send new messages.

TIP: Photos posted from mobile to Hangouts chat are full size.

At the moment there is no way to check photos by size on Google+ but here's a workaround:

The only way I know to do this is via the search tool in Picasaweb. 

Start here at https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/myphotos?noredirect=1

Click the search button (no need to add any search term)

Click the 'Extra large photos' option ( you will see this option on the left hand side of the screen)

Select the 'My photos' from the search drop down menu (via the search box, top right hand corner of the screen)

This should display a selection or large photos stored in your account ....I know this only allows single photo selections but it's a start.


Check your storage: Hover your mouse over the pie chart to get the pop-up.
https://www.google.com/settings/storage

Absurdity break

Since I don't own a magical social justice wand, I can only offer you a bit of absurdity to rest your weary self before getting back to the long, hard slog building a better world.

Better than advertised

'Les pires' can be translated as "the worst" -- which this is not, at all. Lovely owls, lovelier mazurka-esque milonga to slide you off into the weekend.

Fare thee well:  John Renbourn 8 August 1944 -- 26 March 2015
Mist Covered Mountains of Home (Chì mi na mòrbheanna) / The Orphan / Tarboulton

I have a fine appreciation of skilled guitarist of all schools, but John Renbourn and Bert Jansch were in a class unto themselves -- and now the last of them is gone. John's arrangements of traditional Gaelic and Early music magically capture the past and present in melodic lines that are simultaneously sparely singular and lushly harmonic. His skill as a player was at least equal to his skill in arrangement, and he was always generous in sharing those skills with audiences and other musicians. A great man by any account, his music, his kindness and his wit will ever live in memory.
