On Hacker News feeds, such as http://feedly.com/index.html#subscription%2Ffeed%2Fhttps%3A%2F%2Fnews.ycombinator.com%2Frss
Feedly mishandles those that link to YouTube. It fails to include the "comments" link to the HN discussion.

I believe that this is a Feedly bug, and not some problem with HN's RSS, because Digg Reader shows the link to the HN discussion, as did Google Reader.

Thanks. I confirm that this is a feedly bug. We will look into it.

The Ron Paul people on Reddit have an organized effort underway to spam Paul to the top of this Time Magazine poll concerning who should be Man of the Year for 2011: http://www.facebook.com/questions/10150351535101491/?qa_ref=qd

Let's show them how to really spam a poll. Go there and vote for Dennis Ritchie.

Some interesting OS X Lion feature I hadn't noticed: http://lifehacker.com/5817644/top-10-secret-features-in-mac-os-x-lion
Lion's out and there's a lot of new stuff to explore. Apple tells you about most of it on their web site, but there are still some secret features you'll want to know about.

Keychain Access is no longer scriptable via AppleScript in OS X Lion, it appears. Probably not going to affect most of you, but in case I'm not the only one who was doing that, thought I'd give a heads up.

Looks like a can do what I want with the "security" command-line program instead.

I don't know what is more awesome--that someone asked on Reddit how fast a marshmallow would have to be going at sea level to be roasted from the heating due to air resistance....or the fact that someone actually calculated the answer (mach 1.6).

Cool bookmarklet: http://dzejkej.github.com/mathjax-bookmarklet/

Use it when you see things that look like the following paragraph, and it will render them for you.

$\left( \sum_{k=1}^n a_k b_k \right)^2 \leq \left( \sum_{k=1}^n a_k^2 \right) \left( \sum_{k=1}^n b_k^2 \right)$

By default, it seems to mess up on Google+, but if you right click and play with the settings, you can change the renderer to one that works better.

Listening to an interesting album called "Canon in D in Various Modes" by someone called ":Pachelbel" (yes, the colon seems to be part of the name).

It consists of Johann Pachelbel's famous "Canon in D" played (as you might guess from the title) in various modes: aeolian, locrian, ionian, dorian, phrygian, lydian, and mixolydian (plus some other amusements, like playing it backwards).

Some of them are quite interesting, but also a bit disturbing in what I think might be the musical equivalent of the uncanny valley (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uncanny_valley).

Hah...someone in guild chat said they had just finished watching "Glee" for several straight hours.

I responded that by definition if you watch "Glee" for several hours, you aren't doing it straight.
