She has since modified it, but it started as a shorter haircut with a severe part that made her look like she had a receding hairline.

It appears that Windows is not capable of recognizing my tablet. I guess my only method now of transferring files is by google drive.

edit: Arrrgggghhhh! What should have taken five minutes will now take six hours. I cannot download folders from drive. I can only download one
file
at
a
time.

I just bought an Acer X1161 SVGA projector at a thrift shop for $29.95 - the cheapest one I could find online is about ten times that much. It was missing the remote, so I ordered a knockoff version for about $11.00. It works - I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do with it, but I couldn't pass it up. XD

HOT PSEUDO-LINGUISTICS NEWS!
On a completely different level, I've been following Janelle Shane's neural networks blog (where she's been feeding various pop- and high-culture databases int neural-network systems, and getting strange and very creative results). She gave the system a large database of Harry Potter fanfic titles + synopses, and the output is, needless to say, strange. Some of the material was in languages other than English, and the network obligingly cranked out some synopses in what appears at first glance to be some kind of largely Romance-language-based artifical language (although it is, I imagine, the True Language of Gibberish). :mikihead:
It also did some very strang e ships. :fear:

Does anyone have a solution for Dailymotion videos showing up as an entirely different video when embedded? I didn't have that problem with the long URL format, but they seem to have done away with those and now when I embed a video - it doesn't matter who uploaded it - it shows up as some random, usually Spanish-language video.

It's incredibly frustrating. I can suss out what the long URL would be for videos with english titles, but it's impossible if it's in Japanese.

My netbook was super slow & its display was going out, so I decided to finally replace it with a Surface Pro 3.
I really like it, but it's my first foray into Windows 10. Is there really no way to switch between languages other than the now-default Windows+Space, or one of these other options?:
Image

Since Win'95 I've been using the old (?) default of "Alt+`", but this seems to no longer be an option at all. It allows you to set custom shortcuts for each language seperately, but then it would have to be something different to get INTO Japanese than to get OUT OF Japanese.

I'm aware that it's not a shortcut that's used cross-platform (on my Linux box I think I set it up to be Alt+Tab, because Alt+` is already used as a system command for something else), but I guess I'm just perplexed that Windows would change what I had considered a widely used shortcut.

Making a few extra bucks this summer by helping a fellow student flip his Airbnb between guests. So far it has involved a little more than I expected... like crawling under a tiny bed (which was super messy) to look for things, duct-taping an air mattress to seal it (the plug was missing), and dealing with picky guests. But it's been pretty fun, and extra money is good. The guy paid me extra for the day I went above and beyond to deal with the air mattress situation. :lol:

That reminds me of the one summer I spent in college working for a student moving company. I've done a lot of moving in my life, and I know how to lift heavy furniture. You take out the drawers, or you take the things out of the drawers, or preferably both. But that's not the way you do it if you're a student mover. You pick up the whole dresser with all the crap in the drawers and you carry it, and you just ignore the fact that your arm wants to come out of its socket. XD

So it's been a bit cold in NZ lately. Glad I'm not there! I will be next week though. Hopefully the weather sorts itself out by then.

It's also a good thing I don't live in Wellington anymore.

I figured it out, but its a complicated solution

Since they now removed the long links and you can no longer embed like we used to here on JPLOP, I tried many ways to get it to work with the short links so it shows the correct video.

example of Dailymotion's short link by embedding it the normal way. It doesn't show the correct video :
http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x5tggvq


you need to add an "_" after the link and the category of the video (example creative = creation) (TV and Comedy = fun)

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x5tggvq_creation



Nebraska0405 uses the category creative for his videos

the only problem is : finding or guessing the video's correct category.
http://www.dailymotion.com/us/browse

for NEWS type _news
for COMEDY & ENTERTAINMENT type _fun
for CREATIVE type _creation
for MOVIES type _shortfilm
MUSIC _music
Lifestyle & How-to _lifestyle

i got the categories and its shortcut name from the source code.

Apropos of Amped's post, I'm mulling over the idea of having a BEST OF JPLOP/ PRESERVED DUCK thread which would be read only and just consist of super-interesting/informative posts like that which deserve not to get lost in all of the other random/ephemeral junk that we discuss on a daily basis. Might need a couple more classic posts to get the ball rolling, so if anybody has any ideas...?

Would it just be posts from the random duck thread, or all over jplop? It seems like it should include important posts from pretty much anywhere...
