  1. You overestimate the phasability of the average person, I think. Especially in places with geek-based convention centres. Plus, the camera might not have been obvious; if there's an obvious camera, people are more likely to *mug for it. * Ah, English. In this slang usage, "mug" means "to play-act, in an amateur, untrained manner, as if before an audience." * Also, "mug" used to mean "face". Hence, "mug-shot", or "a picture of someone's face."
  2. Well, I'll know how it turns out in 7-13 days...Theoretically. Shipping can take longer than expected.
  3. Lulu wants to add an ISBN image, even though the cover image already has one. How do I turn that off? Edit: Checked Lulu's forums. Apparently, sometimes one gets added, sometimes not, with no rhyme or reason beyond "the printer requires one" and "it depends which cover designer you choose".
  4. I like cranberry sauce and eggnog. And turkey. Although I like gravy better than cranberry sauce, but that's because gravy is about as good as chocolate and... ...Wait... ...What if I put gravy...On the chocolate?
  5. Unfortunately, the definition of "Hacker" has changed over time, and has different technical meanings than popular meanings. For example, someone who gets paid by a company to intrusion-test the company IT security...Is a "Hacker". Someone who works at a university testing a company's software, and sending the results to the company...Is a "Hacker". They may even get kick-backs from companies for this. Seriously. Certain companies have bounties for security errors in their software. Someone who runs a script they downloaded off a website that scans for security holes and makes a bot-net out of unsecured computers, to scan the internet for accounts with passwords like *"passw0rd"...Is a "Hacker". Someone who makes a program that makes a virtual puppy run around your computer screen...Is a "Hacker". The term "Hacker" is pretty meaningless as misunderstood by the general public. * Seriously, people. Why???
  6. Soon as someone mentions the film "Lucy", at least a few people complain that "using 100% of the brain is actually a seizure!" Congratulations; you made your Science roll. However, if we're going to list all the things in superhero movies that don't work, we'll be here next week.
  7. Why did the troll cross the road?
  8. So that's what all those Youtubers weren't talking about:
  9. Did you hear about the juggler who was scammed into buying shares in a chilli stew company that doesn't exist? Nobody told him
  10. I guess...Maybe...Something about showing what the human body is capable of?...
  11. ...Maybe I should get Acrobat Pro, first. I've only exported from OpenOffice/LibreOffice for my own personal projects.
  12. ...How exactly does one POD a .pdf through Lulu for personal use? I tried that a few days ago, and while there's plenty of advice for exporting from various word processors, it's not applicable if you just have a .pdf.
  13. Impressive...But insane. Sorry, just can't fathom that level of risk just for a crowd's approval. Maybe someone can explain it to me?
