If you want tweet a link to your page, cc to @davewiner. I'll be RTing them so people can see what's up.</description>

  35. <description>Also there's a JSON version of the ratings page, so it can plug into other apps, if that's interesting. Here's the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bingeworthy.io/users/davewiner/ratings.json&quot;&gt;JSON version&lt;/a&gt; of the ratings on my page. To find yours, there's a link at the bottom of your ratings page or just add &lt;i&gt;ratings.json&lt;/i&gt; to the URL for your HTML page.</description>

  42. <description>There are also fixes and tweaks in the new version. One of the most consequential is that the browser's Find command now works in &lt;a href=&quot;http://bingeworthy.io/&quot;&gt;BingeWorthy&lt;/a&gt;. With a long list of programs that scrolls off the bottom of the screen, having a Find command that works is pretty essential.</description>

  49. <description>Thanks to: NakedJen for putting together the initial list of programs with help from her friends in Salt Lake City. To JY Stervinou for lots of coaching on SQL and tireless testing and feedback on the initial design and all through development. Also bad French humor. And Scott Hanson and Andrew Shell for testing help. It's so important to have people who care and pitch in as software is developed. Thank you all so much! &lt;span class=&quot;spOldSchoolEmoji&quot;&gt;💥&lt;/span&gt;</description>

  161. <description>Robert Frank &lt;a href=&quot;https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/17/business/tax-cuts-rich.html?partner=rss&amp;emc=rss&amp;_r=0&quot;&gt;writing&lt;/a&gt; in the NYT says that a tax cut for the rich won't make anyone richer, because it's all relative. It's a bug to see your wealth as relative to other people's wealth. There comes a point, way before you're in the 1%, that more money can't buy you more than you already have that you can actually use. You can't use two bedrooms, or two cars. Owning a stadium with 50K seats does you no good because you can only sit in one. Having more money does not make you bigger. As Bill Gates said, wisely -- the hamburger is the same, no matter how much money you have.</description>

  274. <description>Hotlist notes. What is I, Claudius? Highly rated. Never heard of it. Nice to see my favorites being highly rated. Some exceptions. Fargo is #20, Silicon Valley is #47. Six Feet Under one of my #5's is rated 2.8. Bojack is #77? That can't be right! And Star Trek Discovery, which I have not watched, that everyone raves about is #98. It's still very early, but some programs have as many as 60 votes. Top 5: The Wire, Breaking Bad, Claudius, West Wing, Band of Brothers.</description>

  288. <description>A story I like to tell. At Living Videotext, our first office was a dark room in a former church on San Antonio Road in Mountain View. The church is gone, the &lt;a href=&quot;https://www.google.com/maps/@37.4114991,-122.106259,3a,75y,103.11h,75.13t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s2GuEo7y3_hdPAoo7SG5wnw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656&quot;&gt;land&lt;/a&gt; is probably now part of a Google sub-campus. It was kind of a slum of an office, but it worked, it got us to the next stage, a suite of offices on &lt;a href=&quot;https://www.google.com/maps/@37.4316662,-122.1039337,3a,75y,121.42h,79.47t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sFT4lOwTmFFeDlVPVk8u4tQ!2e0!6s%2F%2Fgeo2.ggpht.com%2Fcbk%3Fpanoid%3DFT4lOwTmFFeDlVPVk8u4tQ%26output%3Dthumbnail%26cb_client%3Dmaps_sv.tactile.gps%26thumb%3D2%26w%3D203%26h%3D100%26yaw%3D97.83552%26pitch%3D0%26thumbfov%3D100!7i13312!8i6656&quot;&gt;Elwell Court&lt;/a&gt; in Palo Alto, near the golf course and airport. The problem with the first office was that the windows didn't open and I was a smoker and they let you smoke in offices back then, even if the windows didn't open. So we made sure that the Elwell Court office had windows that opened. It was our top feature request. Then, we kept growing, and the next office was a standalone &lt;a href=&quot;https://www.google.com/maps/@37.4203375,-122.0956367,3a,75y,125.35h,90t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1skMKj9NTMi-wniFPnqIiMkw!2e0!6s%2F%2Fgeo3.ggpht.com%2Fcbk%3Fpanoid%3DkMKj9NTMi-wniFPnqIiMkw%26output%3Dthumbnail%26cb_client%3Dmaps_sv.tactile.gps%26thumb%3D2%26w%3D203%26h%3D100%26yaw%3D131.76736%26pitch%3D0%26thumbfov%3D100!7i13312!8i6656&quot;&gt;building&lt;/a&gt; on Charleston Road in Mountain View. By then we had forgotten about the windows opening, and as soon as we moved in realized oh shit the windows don't open here.</description>

  295. <description>The moral of the story. We elected Obama to fix the economy that Bush broke. We, collectively, forgot. So we elected someone even worse, who is proceeding to break the economy even more. We're going to need someone better than Obama to fix it, if it's possible. Also, don't expect the next president to be like Trump. It doesn't work that way. He or she will be total Establishment. A real intellect. Not flamboyant or a narcissist. He or she will have other flaws, that we will have by then forgotten to watch out for.</description>

  302. <title>The 2017-18 Knicks are fun!</title>
  303. <description>&lt;p&gt;The Knicks this year are fucking awesome. So much fun to watch. So many stories and rookie lessons. I love it. &lt;/p&gt;&#10;&lt;p&gt;The only reason the Knicks &lt;a href=&quot;https://www.newsday.com/sports/basketball/knicks/knicks-cavaliers-lebron-james-1.14968904&quot;&gt;lost&lt;/a&gt; to Cleveland is that LeBron fucked with their heads. If that's how he has to win a game. My fear is that he'll want to come to NY next, and the Knicks might just do a deal with him. That would be Melo 2.0. We just learned how having a non-point guard who thinks he owns the ball is poison. &lt;/p&gt;&#10;&lt;p&gt;This is &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/basketball/knicks/daze-linsanity-5-years-jeremy-lin-ny-storm-article-1.2974623&quot;&gt;Linsanity&lt;/a&gt; squared. The Knicks are having fun and there's so much love on the court. It's why basketball can be such a great sport. &lt;/p&gt;&#10;</description>

  328. <description>Here's the idea. I want to binge something good on Netflix or HBO or Amazon, or whatever. I ask friends for ideas. Then I pick something. It might be good. I want to systematize that. That's &lt;a href=&quot;http://bingeworthy.io/&quot;&gt;BingeWorthy&lt;/a&gt;. At first we produce a Top 100 list, because that's all we have the data for. The goal is to build a database of prefs so we can make better and better recommendations.</description>

  356. <title>How I rate bingeable programs</title>
  357. <description>&lt;p&gt;I've been thinking about my categories. When I say 4 out of 5, this is what I'm talking about. &lt;/p&gt;&#10;&lt;ul&gt;&#10;&lt;li&gt;Worst! -- Never should have been made. A complete disaster. I need to hate on this.&lt;/li&gt;&#10;&lt;li&gt;Meh -- I have some respect for it, but please, don't do another season. Homeland is in this category. Lost is halfway betw Meh and Good. &lt;/li&gt;&#10;&lt;li&gt;Good -- I watched it, maybe not all seasons, maybe not all the way through. It was entertaining. I respect the program, but I'm not sure I would recommend it. Dexter is a prototype. I got really tired of it. Also Big Love. Entourage.&lt;/li&gt;&#10;&lt;li&gt;Loved -- The programs I would recommend wholeheartedly. There are a lot of programs in this category.&lt;/li&gt;&#10;&lt;li&gt;Best! -- There are only a few Bests. For me The Sopranos, The Wire. The West Wing. Silicon Valley.&lt;/li&gt;&#10;&lt;/ul&gt;&#10;&lt;p&gt;My rating is the average of all seasons. For example, the first couple of seasons of Homeland were pretty good. Then it got lost, about the time F. Murray Abraham came on board. So net-net it's a Good. ;-)&lt;/p&gt;&#10;</description>

  373. <title>RSS feed problem diagnosed, fixed</title>
  374. <description>&lt;p&gt;I believe I found and fixed the &lt;a href=&quot;https://github.com/scripting/Scripting-News/issues/42&quot;&gt;problem&lt;/a&gt; that was causing posts from &lt;a href=&quot;http://scripting.com/&quot;&gt;Scripting News&lt;/a&gt; to repeat in &lt;a href=&quot;http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/rss/rss.html&quot;&gt;RSS&lt;/a&gt; readers, and why they didn't show up as doubles in &lt;a href=&quot;https://github.com/scripting/river5&quot;&gt;River5&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;/p&gt;&#10;&lt;p&gt;The problem occurred when I traveled outside my time zone, and post something using my laptop. And it happens again, in some readers, when I return home. &lt;/p&gt;&#10;&lt;p&gt;To understand why, you need to understand something about how RSS works. Each item has an &lt;a href=&quot;http://cyber.harvard.edu/rss/rss.html#ltguidgtSubelementOfLtitemgt&quot;&gt;identifier&lt;/a&gt; called a &lt;i&gt;guid&lt;/i&gt; that uniquely identifies it. My CMS software generates each item's guid using the time it was created. For example, if a post was created at 10:38:12AM, the guid would be &lt;i&gt;a103812.&lt;/i&gt; But when I move to a different time zone, say to Mountain Time from Eastern Time, the guid would change to &lt;i&gt;a083812.&lt;/i&gt; A different guid, therefore the RSS reader thinks it's a new post. So you see it again in Feedly. Depending on how the reader works it might see it as a new item once again when I move back to Eastern Time. &lt;/p&gt;&#10;&lt;p&gt;Why didn't &lt;a href=&quot;https://github.com/scripting/river5&quot;&gt;River5&lt;/a&gt; have the problem? It has another check. If two posts have exactly the same text, it figures you don't need to see it again. This protection was put in to guard against the possibility that you might subscribe to two feeds from one pub, and they might run the same item in two feeds. I reasoned you don't need or want to see it a second time. There are some pubs, like the NYT, where I subscribe to a dozen or more feeds. They might run a sports/business item in both the sports and business feeds. Because they are in different feeds, the guids don't match, so you'd see it again. So I used a &lt;a href=&quot;https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heuristic&quot;&gt;heuristic&lt;/a&gt; technique, that happened to also suppress this bug. &lt;/p&gt;&#10;&lt;p&gt;The fix was simple, generate the guid using &lt;a href=&quot;https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coordinated_Universal_Time&quot;&gt;UTC&lt;/a&gt;, which doesn't change based on where the feed is generated. So at this point, if you see two items from this &lt;a href=&quot;http://scripting.com/rss.xml&quot;&gt;feed&lt;/a&gt; in your reader, it's some other problem. &lt;/p&gt;&#10;&lt;p&gt;As they &lt;a href=&quot;http://artsites.ucsc.edu/GDead/agdl/touc.html&quot;&gt;say&lt;/a&gt; &quot;it's even worse than it appears.&quot;&lt;/p&gt;&#10;</description>

  381. <source:outline text="To understand why, you need to understand something about how RSS works. Each item has an &lt;a href=&quot;http://cyber.harvard.edu/rss/rss.html#ltguidgtSubelementOfLtitemgt&quot;&gt;identifier&lt;/a&gt; called a &lt;i&gt;guid&lt;/i&gt; that uniquely identifies it. My CMS software generates each item's guid using the time it was created. For example, if a post was created at 10:38:12AM, the guid would be &lt;i&gt;a103812.&lt;/i&gt; But when I move to a different time zone, say to Mountain Time from Eastern Time, the guid would change to &lt;i&gt;a083812.&lt;/i&gt; A different guid, therefore the RSS reader thinks it's a new post. So you see it again in Feedly. Depending on how the reader works it might see it as a new item once again when I move back to Eastern Time." created="Mon, 13 Nov 2017 14:56:14 GMT" permalink="http://scripting.com/2017/11/13.html#a145614"/>
