Review: TheMarySue.com — Geek News & Reviews From A Female Perspective

Posted by kristobaldude on December 6, 2012

LOTR Ripoff, Age of The Hobbits, Claims Hobbits Are Real | The Mary Sue.

The link above is one interesting post I found on themarysue.com.  This site has lots of neat articles of interest to the geek community including stuff on Lord Of The Rings/The Hobbit, superheroes, comics, geek gifts, etc.  The layout is visually appealing incorporating a “comic-book” style and golden rectangle balance in architecture.  The site reviews all things about women/girls/females in the geek universe.  If you are wondering, “Where can I get a uniquely female perspective on geek culture?” look no further than themarysue.com.

Catching Up On Your Comments …

Posted by kristobaldude on October 11, 2012

Greetings Friends,

I have recently completed a move to a new state and consequently my keeping up with your comments and questions has suffered, and for that I apologize.  I have quick-posted interesting articles as I found them, but have found little energy to write many original posts of my own.  Still not feeling up to writing posts very frequently, what with my new job and settling into my new place.  I’ll try to get you guys caught up and publish some useful articles on apartment living and Feng Shui over the next couple months.  I’ll also be getting to your comments soon.  I’m currently on a restricted eating program (Aka: Lemonade Diet/Master Cleanse) and it has drained the energy out of me, making it hard to keep up with the demands of running this blog.  I thank you all for your patience and bearing with me in these trying times.

Blessings and Good Fortune to All

FACEBOOK: How Can I View All My Own Posts?

Posted by kristobaldude on January 9, 2011

Facebook QuestionDate: 01/09/11

[NOTE:  A search for “How Can I View All My Own Posts?” on Google yields mostly results such as “How to keep my friends from viewing my posts”, which is obviously not the same, and therefore yields answers one might classify as less-than-helpful.  Therefore, I am bloggin today about this issue.

Beacuase most of the “How do I ask Facebook a question that isn’t already included in the FAQ” type links cannot be found in the newest Facebook incarnation (c. December 2010), I used this link:

http://www.facebook.com/help/contact.php?show_form=ui_notes#!/help/contact.php?show_form=ui_notes#!/help/?page=781

to submit my issue to Facebook.  Here is the content of my submission:

How can I View All My Own Posts As One Feed?  There used to be a link but it doesn’t work anymore.  Without this option, to manually find all things that I have posted (statuses, notes, discussions, etc …) would take weeks or even months – I know because I tried it in 2008, and as a person with a full-time job, it took me over 2 months to “gather” and print all my posts.  THIS NEEDS TO BE A FUNCTION IN FACEBOOK, otherwise the task would become too unweildy.

I am guessing that Facebook programmers either moved the location of this function, or overlooked it’s inclusion in the new version.  The third option would be that Facebook DELIBERATELY didn’t include that ability, but that simply makes no sense.  Therefore, if the function exists, but has moved, please advise me on it’s new location and how one can implement it, or if it has been left out, please put it back in … As a programmer, I’m sure all that would be required is to run a SQL query that gathers all items tagged with “created by this user”, or something similar, which is automatically generated whenever the user posts anything on their profile.  Then buffer it in php script and output it as one feed – voila – done!  End of problem.

This feature could be made more useful even by the addition of these features which have never been available in Facebook to my knowledge, in conjunction with the “View All My Posts” function I am describing:

1) Print All button – Format all entries returned for printing and then print.

2) My Posts on MY PROFILE vs. My Posts on OTHERS’ PROFILES – Another tag can be used with a slightly modified SQL query to Allow choosing between posts by you on your profile, and posts by you on other people’s profiles.

3) Print Photos & Comments – Use a checkbox system to let users pick what photos they want to print and the picture will be formatted for printing, along with all the comment thread underneathe the photo

These last 3 are just additional modifications that could be added for greater user friendliness and satisfaction.

Thank you for your time!

Kristobaldude’s Blog: 2010 Year In review

Posted by kristobaldude on January 2, 2011

The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:

Healthy blog!

A helper monkey made this abstract painting, inspired by your stats.

A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 2,800 times in 2010. That’s about 7 full 747s.

In 2010, there were 32 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 74 posts. There were 5 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 488kb.

The busiest day of the year was December 16th with 79 views. The most popular post that day was FACEBOOK GONE … DISAPPEARED!!!.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were ifreestores.com, facebook.com, google.com, erichepperle.com, and search.aol.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for general motors bonds, cheetah, wiccan altar, customer service representative, and customer service.

FACEBOOK GONE … DISAPPEARED!!!

Posted by kristobaldude on December 16, 2010

Facebook ProblemFacebook is gone! (3:21 PM CST) … I tried logging into facebook on both firefox and IE7 and all I get is a blank page! Google didn’t have any relevant results from today, hence this short post. It really made me wonder though: HAS FACEBOOK REPLACED OUR NORMAL MEANS OF COMMUNICATION and WHAT DO WE DO WHEN FACEBOOK GOES DOWN? Sure, we can post on other sites like Twitter, and Reddit, or even WordPress … but, We know if we want instant response and connectivity to our loved ones, friends, and those most important in our inner circle, that facebook is the place to post. Has Facebook, (for better or for worse) engendered a complete paradigm shiftin communication for our generation.

Facebook - You're Doing It Wrong

Facebook - You're Doing It Wrong

What other alternatives for total connectivity are there? Should we even have total connectivity? These are all questions that one is forced to ask, in our current era of literally “instant” communication.

SOLVED! PROBLEMS WITH NEW FACEBOOK: Can’t post links !!!

Posted by kristobaldude on December 7, 2010

Facebook Problem(12/08/10) – UPDATE: As of today, I am no longer experiencing problems posting.  There was no explanation of the bug, or what the solution was … it just started working.  I have been able to post to my page and to others’ personal pages to my heart’s content!!! 🙂

However, I am interested to know if anyone else is still having these problems?

Since switching to the new Facebook 3 days ago, I have been unable (try as I might), to post any new links directly on my wall, or anyone else’s wall … This really sucks!!!  A GOOGLE search came up with almost zero hits on answers to this problem, and I’ve had others tell me they’re experiencing the same thing, yet, again, a google search is only showing very few complaints on this issue …  WHICH IS WHY i CREATED THIS POST!

These are the links I tried to post this morning (about 3 days ago):

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1336035/Facebook-cartoon-character-campaign-NSPCC-charity-says.html?ITO=1490

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1335852/Facebook-profile-lead-higher-insurance-premium-snoop-online.html

and

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-1336021/Facebooks-new-profile-page-reveals-before.html

, all to no avail.

There are two aspects to this problem:

1)  This only seems to be occuring with people who have switched to newest version of Facebook, released less than a week ago (today is Dec 7, 2010).  So, those who haven’t switched yet, don’t seem to be experiencing these problems. ON THE OTHER HAND … There is no way to SWITCH BACK TO THE OLD VERSION OF FACEBOOK.  I have been trying for 3 days to post, all to no avail.

2)  The only link posts that have worked for me are posts directly from a “share” or “facebook” button, on a given site.

I hope FACEBOOK comes up with a solution to this soon!!!

Also, I’d love to hear from anyone else having these same problems … and if you come up with a good solution, please share here as well! 🙂
