    @iconmaster school buses and snow plow trucks [in some Massachusetts towns] already get this surveillance. Data thus obtained has even been used to convict a truck who was not where he claimed he had been.

      @sham I am sticking with it...it does everything I need and doesn't do all the crap I hate in a web service.

        @joeo10 on the other hand, twitter stock should gain a few points

          @meemee @gtwilson 5 days with 50 degree lows and 70 degree highs...teased a lot of blooms of crocus but my forsythia are sitting tight in the buds for now...and a good thing. 16 degrees by tomorrow morning. ugh. so tired of cold.

            @jessicadennis tres chic! I see cat hair. I am unsurprised.

              @gtwilson It does seem odd. After all, a Google for "bulk hardware suppliers" gets you Home Depose at the very top of the "Ad" results. Why would HD bother to buy an ad for a service they can't deliver. black eye AND waste of money!

                I want to build something that needs 60 cheap hinges. I try to buy them on line from Home Depose. F**king HD wants me to guess how many they have in stock?! — photos.app.net/28536287/1

                  @lasar that "drowning out" is one way to describe what modern hearing aids do...but without further damaging the ear.

                    @sanspoint they have to look better than my usual: ducking into the men's room at the clubs and coming out with wads of t-paper halfway stuck in my ears. Must scare the youngsters.

                      @sanspoint favorite birthday card: image of three old guys strolling on beach. guyOne: "Its windy today!" guyTwo: "No, its Thursday!" guyThree: "Me too!, lets go get some beer." Unfortunately, my hearing deficits have not proven so hilarious.

                        target practice without hearing protection, operating chainsaws, backhoes and tractors, construction site generators with piss-poor mufflers....all these and 110dB dance bands in small venues. I should be deaf. @wickedgood @berklee @redqueencoder @charl

                          @wickedgood @berklee @redqueencoder @charl, Tinnitus is brain's dodgy work around to frequency bands the ear has stopped transducing. Newer hearing aids tuned to individual's losses can help, especially in noisy environments.

                              @davidsheeks and since I have kids to whom I leave this world, I hope your optimism is vindicated.

                                @davidsheeks we can’t dent cosmos. My daughter is resigned to humans destroying the ecologies she studies and mockingly consoles herself that it all fizzles out in few billion years. But other earths seem less likely than other universes with this paper.

                                  @davidsheeks some exaggerate the consequences and some down play…who is objective about our numbers and our use of the earth?

                                    @davidsheeks [if what we do takes us out of the universe](http://www.statecolumn.com/2014/04/new-study-deals-major-blow-to-climate-change-deniers/) perhaps I should say the fate of the universe does not matter TO US.

                                      I don’t claim to understand [this cosmology paper](http://arxiv.org/pdf/1404.1207v1.pdf) but it says nothing to contradict the high probability of MANY universes. Comforting thought, given how we screwed this universe.

                                          well, it was bound to happen. i plugged in my modem for my iMac after long dormancy and it tells me I can have OSX 10.9.2 for “free” …. DO I WANT THIS?
