A friend and I will be visiting Marseille for several days in the Fall. While our French is rudimentary, we'd both like to experience a show of some kind. So I'm hoping for recommendations for a show or cabaret or other venue that might be fun for non-speakers. [more inside]

Math based Scrabble/Upwords game for iOS

A friend and I have pretty much played ourselves out on Scrabble/Upwords word-based games and are looking for a new game to take their place. Numbers based games would be welcome, but in general something with massive replay-value where each game takes a few days would be ideal. Suggestions?

Anyone used the free scriptwriting feature in StudioBinder?

I'm having trouble finding the scriptwriting module in StudioBinder. There is supposedly a Documents page where you can create scripts, but all I've gotten so far is a Project created. I can't find a way to add or create scripts. Help!

Trying to find a 2010 online blog with a memorable webpage layout

Back in 2010, there was this Vice / Cracked-style article site that always had the text directly on top of the empty space of a (16:9?) photo. All of the photos used the Rule of Thirds with either blur or simple color backgrounds so that the text was always either white or black and very readable. [more inside]

Article on TikTok potentially influencing US, comparing with Shein?

Last year, perhaps, I read an article highlighting the potential, latent risks of TikTok by asking, essentially, what is stopping the Chinese government from using the platform to quietly spread misinformation or influence opinion en masse? It described using AI (this was pre-ChatGPT) to pinpoint susceptible pressure points in the population (forming arguments that people would be more likely to buy, and quickly), and cited and compared fast-fashion company Shein as part of the discussion. Anyone know the piece?

Signing into Windows 10 post-offline install

I have built "around" an old PC using a mix of new and salvaged parts, and thought I'd install Windows 10 "clean". I built on a workbench and didn't connect to the Internet while doing the initial Windows install, and now it's asking for a product key. [more inside]

Consumerist(?) logo?

Looking for an old logo that I'm 99% certain was on The Consumerist back in its heyday. The logo said "My Call Is Important To You!" with a phone (or maybe a stick figure?) shouting at a tall building. Any idea where it could be? Did I imagine it?

Where and how to find more assistant TV/film editing work?

My husband works as an assistant editor in film and TV. He's mostly freelance, based in NYC, and able to work remotely. He's noticed a significant decrease in posted jobs over the past year. Landing a gig has also gotten more competitive. His usual sources are his local network, Facebook groups for editors, and StaffMeUp. He is looking into joining the union, but he's a little early in his career to be eligible. Are there other places where he should be looking for work or networking?

How to create a collaborative custom map (for our sales points)

For my work, I keep a map of our current resellers all over the world, and this (google) map is published on our website. This way, potential retail customers can easily find a reseller near them. Currently, I manually add new resellers to the map when they place their first order. This is .... time-consuming. How do i let resellers add themselves to the map instead? [more inside]

Help me find 2 recent songs/videos, with little information to go on

I occasionally listen to YouTube's Conditions Underground playlist or, more frequently, Left of the Dial. These get updated... periodically?
