Breastpumped while listening to The Talk Show and checking email.
By the way, I think Mandarin is left to right when written horizontally, but right to left when vertical, right?
Haha I typed February 2015 Edition like I am good at posting up things on a schedule. Actually usually I note interesting links when Leaf sends me a “I ran out of internet and I’m bored” email which she hasn’t. But whatever. Here’s some things I saw around that I thought were interesting, if anyone is ever bored.
- 26 Pictures That Will Give You Some Peace For Once in Your Life: For the OCD in everyone. :)
- What It’s Like Living in Boston Right Now: Wow, these photos are crazy.
- The Shape of Things to Come: A long form piece about Jony Ive of Apple.
- Christina Aguilera (and Jimmy Fallon) do singing impressions, including one of Christina singing like Britney.
- Eating Peanuts Prevents Allergy: It turns out that more exposure is good.
I’m adding another link:
So this just happened:
Dial number, hear “Welcome, please enter your access code and press the pound key.” Enter the access code, absentmindedly press the red obvious button without thinking, hang up on the call. Oops!
Note how the # button and the red button are not easily confused. And yet. Thank goodness no one hears anything until you actually connect properly.
I have no need for these because I tend to memorize the page I’m on, just flip around until I find my page again, or drop in a random receipt or something. I do this even when I have perfectly cute bookmarks around, so this doesn’t work. But these look really nice. Much better than little sticky sign here tags too. (via The Well-Appointed Desk)
Flickr 3.0 just got released today. So far I like it! Seems faster and better! The interface looks nicer, too. But you know one thing they didn’t fix? It doesn’t do upside down orientation. I know, I know, who cares, right? But I do. Sometimes I use my iPad or iPhone upside down. Like when I’m charging it but the cord is just a little too short, for example. And then if I try to look at photos on Flickr, it’s annoying. But that’s still not a downgrade from the previous app, because version 2 also didn’t do upside down at all. So at worst you get a better app that just still doesn’t turn.
Edited to add: Shawn Blanc just posted his review of Flickr 3.0 and it’s way complete and full of information where mine isn’t! In case you’re interested in an actual review with information. And pictures. :)

yut: I thought it was snot, then started to pray that it was snot
Clearly I am the sympathetic type.
