A street view car is in Cheshire today. Shame it's overcast.

Sadly this page doesn't list whether your phone number is in the subset of data shared with the NSA, if Google's data is actually a superset of the data the NSA can get from Google.
<h3>Why Google asks you to add a mobile phone number to your account </h3> <p>Having a mobile phone number on your account is one of the easiest and most reliable ways to help keep your account safe

I'm at Google I/O Extended. Barclays are supplying beer and pizza. W00t.

So, watching Lovefilm on a Mac sucks right now.

OSX Snow Leopard.
Latest Silverlight plugin straight from Microsoft.
Firefox 15 or Safari.

Once I worked out how to unblock the SL plugin in FF it worked, but the next day I was getting a plain black rectangle instead of the Watch Now buttons or play controls. If I right-(control-)clicked the box I get a "Silverlight Preferences" option but when I choose it, that app fails to launch. Same when I try the "Microsoft Silverlight" option straight from Applications.

If I remove the plugin by deleting the .plugin file from Application Support then reinstall it, SL works long enough to watch a film.

Where are the useful log files such that I could diagnose the conflict or permissions failures that might be causing this?

This made me sad. I wish they'd GPL the source so it could be re-targetted at Feedly and The Old Reader.

Feedly app only plays in the foreground. That and gReader also fail to differentiate between the UX requirements for news and podcast consumption. Listen got that right.

Sure, I kept using it until I'd listened to everything that was pending when the GR backend stopped polling for new items.

I did have problems with some podcasts getting the format for RSS attachments wrong but it worked 99%.

Elizabeth Warren and Claire McCaskill are two of my favorite senators.

Warren, a first term senator, has been aggressively going after the banks that destroyed our economy and laundered money for drug cartels.


McCaskill has introduced two long overdue (and obvious) bills:

Cut all Congressional pay until the sequester ends:

Allow electronics usage during takeoff (really, its 2013 guys, we know it doesn't interfere with the plane):

Women are better at mediation and compromise. This deep Congressional divide and dick waving wouldn't be such a problem, if there were literally less dicks in Congress.
