    Surprisingly hard to explain weird history of GIF images to son. "What's a JPEG?"

      @tomcat @clarkgoble In Dotcom crash Nasdaq Composite lost 78% of its value. THAT is a crash, and that's what I'd predicted. What we have is a correction. If stays like this China will once again have confounded me :-).

        @duerig I think you are safe from iCloud!

          iPeition: Bring Back Music Home Sharing. [www.ipetitions.com] I'd like to see option to revert in iOS 8.

            @clarkgoble In 80s/90s we spoke of 'peacetime dividend' of end of cold war. The War against Evil sucked a lot of that brainpower back. Haven't seen recent attempts to quantify these effects.

              @clarkgoble If it stays at 30% it's really not that worrisome. That's almost too small to be a healthy correction given excesses. China may continue defeating my predictions.

                @clarkgoble The WSJ link was Opinion section; WSJ opinion was very low reliability even before Murdoch. The Journal-Sentinel article says Archer was axed by Walker's team, which is odd for "victim" of left wing harassment.

                  @rabryst yeah. Wonder if Library Sharing was supposed to stay around, but got cut due to bugs/time.

                    @duerig How do you manage Contacts between phone and computer?
                    johngordon
                      @rabryst That is many months away though. I wish there was more anger -- Apple might then offer option to revert to prior Music.app version. Not seeing that so far.

                        I used iTunes Library sharing. Really kind of shocking that Apple took it away like that. Sleazy even by Apple standards.

                          Ok, that was disturbing. iCloud rejected my credentials for a few minutes on several devices. Working now.

                            ... Adding that store to spotlight privacy removed from photos import list
                            johngordon
                              Had minor MI when wife's user account Photos.app seemingly offered my Libraries for conversion. Realized Spotlight was offering from a tertiary backup on external no-permission drive. Phew.

                                @johngordon My favorite analog computation example is using a peg board and sudsy water to compute minimal spanning tree on the graph. Dip the pegs in, lift the board out, and the bubble pattern traces MST. Random lesson plan for this. [superm.math.hawaii.edu]
