Google Talk randomly removed the file transfer function without any notice. File transfers to me say they're withdrawn by my friend, my friend is told I denied the transfer (neither of us even touch the window in the process). Upon searching which took over an hour to find, I came across an employee's post in this thread that says "oh yeah we've removed file transfer in favor of our cloud services, thanks for your support" Their cloud services that have terrible terms of use that grant Google rights to your shared files. Super. That's not a feature and I'd expect a reasonable announcement or a software upgrade removing the "Transfer File" button. https://groups.google.com/a/googleproductforums.com/forum/#!msg/chat/nuaBNh4qzQA/r9PIwh7qL7IJ I've been so annoyed by google as of late I'm ready to start using competing services.

She also mentioned in the prior post she's working on a book and updates would be sparse. Hopefully that's the only thing, because I very much want to support her efforts!

The Ken Jennings meeting was hilarious, I was right behind him and kept thinking "Is it? Nah. Well he IS local. Huh, maybe." The resultant nerd squee from both of you plus the cameo over the table from Jonathan Frakes was very fun to witness! I'd also like to say thanks for letting just a couple more come through the closed sign, at least according to the volunteer who told that to me. I figured it was special treatment for (who I suspected was) Ken Jennings but somehow I got lumped in the group anyway. Maybe it was because Felicia and Amy still had longer lines just before the Guild panel. Either way, I had already resolved that I would wait out for your next visit to PAX Prime, so that was a nice surprise. Thanks for visiting Seattle come back soon!

Too bad I was just in Germany a few months ago visiting my grandma and extended family, Düsseldorf is only 45 minutes away from them, but I think my boss would frown on a sudden vacation to Europe again so soon. Nevertheless I'm thrilled you're coming back to ECCC!

I hope you enjoy your time at PAX the way the rest of us get to experience it. Everyone deserves their time to veg! It will also be infinitely more awesome if I happen to end up next to you in a demo line or something!

I've been taking part in a 10-week body sculpt challenge at a local gym, little bit of strength a little bit of kick boxing and MMA, a lot of fun! I'm in week 6 and have been diligently tracking calories on my iphone and finally got a friend to track their calories along with me. Now frequently we compare at the end of the day how many calories over or under we were. A little bit of razzing always motivates! After reading your post yesterday, I got clever and remembered I had some d20 in my work bag from a gumball machine full of dice at PAX Prime last fall. I rolled that d20 when someone showed up with a plate of Specialty's cookies in the office (300 cal a piece eek!) and rolled a 5. Unfortunately for the cookie it won't be on a journey to my tummy and I'll make the better choice by eating the Luna bar in my drawer. I think I'll start keeping that d20 handy for when I'm out with friends and someone says "oooh ICE CREAM!"

While downloading today's episode in iTunes I checked out Fremont Coffee's website and I'm thrilled to have a new coffee house to go try a few miles down the road! Thanks for the tip, wading through all the coffee houses in Seattle can be daunting sometimes!

I thought the Awesome Hour was indeed Awesome! You're a great performer and despite the fact that there were 1,500 people in that room, I felt like you were one of my friends telling a great story in my living room. I listen to Radio Free Burrito and have a copy of Memories of the Future, so I've heard both stories , but that didn't matter because the experience was great! A lot like seeing your favorite band play your favorite song in concert. Super start to my first Comicon and weekend of soaking up geek. Can't wait to see you at PAX Prime!

In high school I was the "nerd adjacent" girlfriend showing interest... now 8 years, two PAXs, and said boyfriend long behind me I enjoy many things nerd! You never know what you might spark. I love being the nerd in the office full of girls concerned with high fashion and shoes. :)

Long time listener, first time caller... er, commenter. Just wanted to say thank you for this episode even if brief this week. I downloaded it as soon as I got home from work to enjoy before leaving for a weekly bar trivia night with my friends. Your mention of Patrick Stewart being knighted earned our team, Awkward Spooning, a surefire point! Most of our group had been off the grid a while during the holidays so our current events round really suffered. After writing down a bunch of BS answers on our sheet for that round it was nice to know we got at least one point for sure thanks to you. Keep up the good work, I look forward to what next week brings!
