Would you like to share your location?

I live in a certain city in the Midwest because my academic collaborators are here. I've been trying to put down roots in this city, but it really seems like all the communities I care about are on either coast, not here. I'm going to be here for at least another three years. How do I keep from going mad in the meantime? [more inside]

Help me find this tweet

Please help me find something I saw on Twitter a couple months ago. The text read as a kind of fratty dude who is vocalizing support for leftist/human rights causes such as a Medicare For All while also admitting he is too stupid to argue the finer political nuances with opponents. It was way funnier than I am making it out to be, but it's driving me crazy that I can't find it. [more inside]

Making .gifv videos shrink to fit my screen

Is there a Google Chrome extension or Chrome-compatible userscript to make .gifv videos shrink down to fit my screen? For comparison, here's what I see when I open a gif as a .gifv and here's the same file opened as a .gif. Note: I don't want to view .gifv videos in full screen. I'm running Chrome 68.0.3440.106 on a Macbook Pro running OSX 10.13.6.

Inconsistent Volume Contents After Breaking Errored W7 "Dynamic" Mirror

I had a pair of two 2TB 3.5" SATA drives mirrored through Windows 7's logical volume management (i.e. a "dynamic disk" mirror managed in diskmgmt.msc). After noticing errors on one of the physical disks, I remounted the disks as individual volumes, and the contents are not consistent. Only the errored disk is up-to-date. What gives? [more inside]

Mortgage Professionals - How do you start as an MLO?

So, I am exploring the idea of a career change into the mortgage industry and have looked into taking the MNLS classes and exam to apply for licensing. It looks like I need to be sponsored by a company to get my license (Virginia), but I have no experience (or license) to get hired. All job postings I've found required a couple years of experience in mortgages. [more inside]

Final exam question about how infotech can help oppressed poor people

Years ago, on the web, I came across a test question that a college professor posed to their students, sort of asking them what information ought to go onto an ebook reader/mobile device that oppressed peasants could use to make their own lives better, but subtextually demonstrating that this problem is very very hard. I can't find it now -- anyone got a link? [more inside]

Is there a replacement for the most popiular apps on Librem 5?

I really like the new Linux phone/workstation Librem. Two little hiccups. I need streaming music with stations and skips integrated with my steering wheel controls (currently on Slacker on iPhone, but I'm not all that loyal) and more importantly, an app that will navigate to where I need to go. (Currently Google Maps on iPhone.) If I can get streaming music and turn-by-turn GPS map navigation, I will absolutely flip to Librem, as my iPhone 6 Plus is decidedly pokey these days and can't get me to a shell prompt.

Are these two LP gas regulators for a gas grill the same?

I've got a LP gas grill from North America but I'm in the Netherlands. The US grill comes with a type 689 gas regulator. The grills here in the Netherlands have type 714 gas regulators. Are these the same? (other than the size of the fitting for the gas bottle) If they are the same, then I can just buy an adapter (like this one: link ) [more inside]

Book on workforce planning/RBM

I have been assigned to the HR section of a public sector organization without any real prior experience in HR work. This organization is currently getting ready to try to rehaul its workforce planning and institute a results-based management system for the first time. I'm looking for a book that will give me a basic handle on workforce planning and RBM - ideally, focused on the private sector and/or on the process of designing these policies. Googling has not produces anything that fills me with confidence. Any suggestions?

Help me remember/attribute a quote about fascism and chess

Sometime in the last couple years, somewhere on the internet (likely on MetaFilter but maybe not) I read something which I'll paraphrase here: "Fascists use the same strategy for 3-dimensional chess as any other game; if their opponent reaches a hand toward the board, they smash it with a truncheon." I don't know if the context I saw it in was as a quote from some other medium or an original observation, and find myself wanting to quote it but not knowing how to attribute it. Does it ring any bells?

What commercial is this?

Maybe about 5 years ago, there was a funny commercial. I think it was for a car. The premise was a guy was hosting a candy selling fundraiser to school kids. He said something like "whoever sells the most gets... a free trip to wacky water kingdom!" The kids run out and scream in excitement and the man goes "Now get out there and sell that candy!" Anyone remember what commercial this was for, and would you send me a link if you find it? Thanks!!
