I deactivated my Facebook account today, because the more I understand of their 'real name' policy, the more objectionable it is.

Entertainingly, I had to verify my password and confirm just to basically put my account on hold. I can log back in at any time, or so Facebook assures me.

But if I want to suspend someone else's account, preventing them from being able to log in without jumping through ridiculous hoops, all I have to do is pick someone with an unusual name. Even if it's their actual legal name.


The drag and transgender communities aren't the only ones upset about Facebook's system.

I drive myself crazy when I let meat go bad due to poor meal planning/lack of energy to cook in the evenings.

Add this to the long line of unnecessary tech I would fund if I had infinite resources.  Or even slightly less finite resources....

Smart, more like.  Because people did pay.

Oh, Kickstarter, why must you be so teeming with the awesome?  Why do I not have millions to blow on awesome things I don't really need but OMG drool?!  Why am I forced to frugally restrain myself from funding the fantastic photo-reactive fabric dye (for printing on clothes using photo negatives and sunlight)?  I would just be happier in ignorance.

I went a bit crazy recently.  And that's why I will be getting a smart-TV upgrader (Equiso).  And an L8, which, I know, is kinda 1337 for "elate", but just looks like "late" to me.  And a really, really cool amplifier based on shell configurations which I will be taking to NHCA's auction, because I don't even HAVE an iPhone.

I'll probably bring the L8 with me to conference.  I will try very hard not to be completely distracting with it.  Or I will wear it like a 64 LED blinky pin.  One of those options.  For those of you who work with aural rehab or deaf patients, this is definitely worth checking out, and you can still get in on it...and if enough people support it, it gets a sound sensor!

Man, I wish I had a phone compatible with the tricorder-esque sensor array.  
L8 connects via bluetooth to your smartphone to displays by light codes everything that happens through the internet and in your life.

Man, I hate Peachtree. With the sort of passion I typically reserve for deliberately cryptic tax forms. It's a huge burdensome overkill for anyone who contracts independently, but in the absence of any real alternatives (barring chucking my profits steadily into Quickbooks), it seems to be what I'm stuck with. So I grapple with this unwieldy, ridiculously convoluted program, just so I can track billing and print a few invoices.

What's it doing this week? Oh, only refusing to export to PDF, or even offer the option, even though I've done this before.

What you can't see is that I inserted different colored teeth, cut from different colored pumpkins. And that the one on top is sticking out his tongue...

Kathleen panics a lot, but chocolate and diet coke help mask it!

OK, this is pretty cool.  Plus, so many frequent flyer miles!

Congrats to Dick Danielson, who embodies all the best in a hearing conservationist: knowledge, skill at communicating, and a passion for helping others to keep their hearing better for longer.

And in the time it took me to write that sentence...I had a new e-mail.

I suppose you could add salt water. That would take care of the tiny freshwater organism bits, and probably at least a few computer components.

Wrapped my class, everyone passed, everything's accounted for, lots of repeat faces (which means I must not have been awful last time), good-natured group which is always much better than the alternative, heard about some awesome new projects I'd love to get involved with, and I even came home to find a lovely recommendation on LinkedIn.

Life is looking good for ol' Liz Lemon.

Nope, this one was pretty easy. You're thinking of the semester long audiology class...and really, it's less headaches and more minor nuisances.

I've been coming to Coral West for at least 15 years. Dr. Rubel and his staff are friendly, knowledgeable, skilled, and accommodating. And when there's been occasional bad news (cavities), the follow-up treatment has been as close to pain free as I've ever had. If you're phobic about dentists, this is a great place to go!
