To all the Wrimos out there: good luck! I'm not doing NaNoWriMo this year (I got burned out, maybe next year) but I'm rooting for you all. Type like the wind, and don't forget to back up *ALL THE WORDS*. Oh, and make sure to hit or surpass quota every day- don't be like 2011 me and end up having to write 43k in 6 days to finish on time. It's less than fun. 

Now go go go! Type until your fingers fall off! If you need me to put on my old ML hat and send some encouragement, hit me up.

And by "encouragement" I mean I will ban you from taking bathroom breaks until you hit quota. And give you tea. I enjoy wearing my ML hat.

I just found out that if you review or +1 an app, it shows that to all of your friends, even if they aren't searching for that app in particular. I knew that if you were looking at a specific app it would show you any reviews by your friends, but I didn't know that it would actually show that app to your friends as a recommendation based on your review. So, uh, FYI, I guess.

And there seems to be no way to turn this off. Google says, "If you don't want a review you have written to be shared, you can delete it." It's a good thing I'm not embarrassed to be using a pill reminder app, but man, if anyone was using an app for anything more sensitive, that would suck to effectively not be able to leave a review without advertising it to all of your Circles.

I used to be able to look at app reviews from users with the same phone model as me. Did they take that out of the web version of the store? I can still pick that option in the store app on my phone, but not in the web version. Either it's gone, or they hid it REALLY well. Which, boo, that was handy.

So when you +1 something, it shows that something in your friends' streams, provided it's public or they otherwise have the "rights" to see it.

Come on, Google, that is my LEAST FAVORITE Facebook feature. Couldn't you have picked another one to copy?
When you +1 a post, people in your extended circles who also have you in circles may see this +1 "activity update" in their streams. They will only see the activity update if they had access to the original post. Activity updates may also be visible in Google+ search results to anyone who can ...

Ahh, good to know it can be turned off.

+Alexandra Levich, it annoys me that Facebook (and now G+) seems to think that my every move should be broadcast to everyone.

So after reading a bunch of Craigslist horror stories, I'm now terrified to sell my desk because it will require having the buyer come haul it out of my apartment. I'm pretty sure I'll end up murdered to death. Why can't I just wave a magic wand and turn this desk into a pile of cash?

Yeah that probably won't work for me then. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful there.

It's really confusing when couples have pictures taken, then they both use the same shot as their profile picture online.

And if they both have unisex names, like Jamie & Kelly... LOL

My great-grandmother turned 100 last week, and the family threw a big huge party for her, because 100 is a big round number and also an amazing age to live to see. My contribution to the party was the music. They assigned me the task of picking one song for every year she’s been alive, 1913-2013, to be played as background music at the party.

When I was putting the songs together, I wanted to make it sound good, but I also wanted to get a good variety. I hit up Wikipedia to see what songs were popular each year, then trawled Archive.org to find the out of copyright stuff. The worked up to about the 70s, surprisingly, then I had to start buying mp3s. I made an effort not to repeat artists a lot (I’m looking at you Beatles), even if that meant picking slightly less-popular songs sometimes. Michael Jackson got a repeat, though. Dude freaking earned it.

Some years, I made my decision based on my own personal preferences. Wikipedia gave me the top 5-10 songs, and one of them leapt out at me as something I had to include. Other times, there were songs that I just flat out refused to put on my iPod just on principle.

In addition to picking music of different styles, I also tried to make it so it wasn’t all white dudes. I probably could have done more, but keeping all of my other constraints in mind, I’m not unhappy with the result.

When I finally got everything in iTunes and in order, I listened to it, start to finish. And dang. It’s pretty cool, if I may say so myself. Listening to music evolve from a wax cylinder recording of a tenor singing a popular 1913 song, to swing, to jazz, to rock, to disco, to more rock, to modern pop, and through a zillion other iterations in between, is fascinating. You can hear the progression as you listen.

Unfortunately, no one at the party even paid attention. Seriously. I am pretty sure no one would have noticed if we’d just left the random music the venue provided as the default. Sooooooo I want to share it with the internet.

You can download a zip file of the whole thing here. It’s a big file, at 455MB, but it’s a cross-section of the last century of music. 101 songs. I included an Excel list of the 101 songs, but I recommend you just plop the songs into your favorite player and hit Play. Let yourself be surprised. I was surprised by some of the songs, for sure, and even more surprised by how much I really liked some of the older ones.

Feel free to share this post, too. I put a lot of effort into this, and I want to see a lot of people enjoy it. :)

Introduction
I'm Jesso. I do things and say stuff.

I was one of the MLs for the Dallas/Fort Worth NaNoWriMo region. 

If you add me, say hi or something, and let me know how you found me. I've gotten a lot of strangers adding me lately and I'm so confused. Help a girl out, give me a clue!
