David Waddington2,952Sharing 500 Canadians circle. This circle is bigger and I tried to change it so that it was only 500 but when you delete someone from circle it deletes them from all circles. Really weird. I will share part 2 tomorrow but I honestly don't know who of the 668 are not included.If someone can help me fix this issue it would be appreciated because I would like to be able to include everyone that I can.If you are Canadian or living in Canada and not included in this circle leave a comment and I will make sure you are added to part 2.+Amanda Blain perhaps there are some Canadians in this circle that were not in the one you shared.Oh, for those of you that haven't filled out your profile page yet it is a good idea to do so. Stating in your profile the things that interest you will increase the possibility of you being added to circles. Not everyone adds people because they are Canadian.2012-10-15 00:26:015011506

Dear particular misguided US activist group,

It would be great if you could include some contact information in your minutes-long pre-recorded message, on the off chance that someone in Canada does understand and believe your unprovable claims about conspiracies in US Capitol. 

Also, it's immature to spoof your caller ID to be that of a California palliative care organization in order to telemarket to a toll-free number, especially since we can identify you and your carrier by your ANI, *which we get because we're paying for your call*.

I almost considered installing an alternative to Finder before deleting 5 GB of QuickLook cache files. 

For reference, having a 5 GB of QuickLook cache means that screenshots take 20 seconds from being created to Finder showing the new file on the desktop, and a further 15 seconds to be able to be renamed, with CPUs pegged at over 180%.

Between the increasing brain damage in Apple's user interfaces (which I've complained about a lot here) and Apple's internal contradictions about about privacy (of course they'll fully encrypt the device; the important stuff is in the cloud), I'm tempted to be done with Apple for a while.

No, I will not part with my email address before seeing your content.

In the 30 seconds it would have taken for me to type my email address, check the confirmation e-mail, click the link, and find your content page again, I have already scanned search results in three other open tabs to successfully find what I need.

Hopefully, 2015 will be the year that +Flickr adds (or makes discoverable) the ability to upload to a specific album from iOS. I'm both glad and sad to find millions of hits for this question on Google, yet no straightforward answers.

In some other forum, I just commented that in my lifetime, we've advanced from being just barely able to print off a string of 'A's to routinely ebaying and dumpster-diving for DNA printers.

It will certainly be interesting when in a few generations, the office prank of the day involves using one's coffee break to design and jokingly infect a colleague with a noisy fart biological retrovirus that would literally take the entire lunch hour to search and delete from the victim.

Dear particular misguided US activist group,

It would be great if you could include some contact information in your minutes-long pre-recorded message, on the off chance that someone in Canada does understand and believe your unprovable claims about conspiracies in US Capitol. 

Also, it's immature to spoof your caller ID to be that of a California palliative care organization in order to telemarket to a toll-free number, especially since we can identify you and your carrier by your ANI, *which we get because we're paying for your call*.

Google Scholar is an interesting place for this search manipulation/page hijacking scheme to appear. The scammers are basically adding additional second and third-level domain names that resolve to an existing host of high-level content. The goal would be to gain their domains some google juice without the cost of scraping and hosting content. For example,

> dig nsf.gov
nsf.gov. 36 IN A 128.150.4.107

Interestingly, plain autotricks24.com resolves to the same content as truckstore.com, which is from a completely different sector (commercial trucking) than the US National Science Foundation.

Presumably, the scammers will change the behaviour of their domains to drive clicks or serve up malware, etc. once they believe they are satisfactorily entrenched in Google.

More interesting might be the opportunities for individuals and perhaps institutions in academia to manipulate apparent authorship in crawler-driven indexes and metrics.

HTTPS everywhere and slightly more gregarious settings for access_log should make this stick out like a sore thumb to both users and website operators.___
