well, dealership just called with a quote for $5400 work on my 2008 Impreza... haz a sad. I don't think baby car is going to get that investment.
#hotmessnexis : just got this e-mail from the eresources people at my larger place of work: The LexisNexis State Capital database is down and unavailable for access. The vendor has retired the old State Capital database, and changed the resource from State Capital to State Net. They have also changed the access method for the new resource, from IP address to Username/Password, which is not currently working.

I hope everyone (who is working with scholars or publishing) has seen @researchremix and company's new paper: Piwowar, Priem, Orr (2019) The Future of OA: A large-scale analysis projecting Open Access publication and readership. bioRxiv: https://doi.org/10.1101/795310 https://www.biorxiv.org/content/biorxiv/early/2019/10/09/795310.full.pdf
Got my flu shot. Yay for mpow just doing it without hassle and convenient
I asked a question on Twitter and got a reply from the guy who wrote the O'Reilly book on the topic. I mean. It's definitely still good for questions like this. RT @IntranetFocus: “@Prossian @cpikas https://t.co/HCO0Q7P3vW is a good place to start. https://t.co/DZxAvmXzFB is also very helpful. Ryen White https://t.co/rwwSotjcCv is thorough but writes from a rather academic perspective. And then of course there is my book https://t.co/IyDkoezJys” https://twitter.com/IntranetFocus/status/1179100425183797249

I have to actually write something - a committee report - and i do not want to and I've procrastinated myself into a corner.
I uploaded my basic scripts for getting orcids from the orcid and crossref apis using R here: https://github.com/cpikas/orcid these are the same as here: https://christinaslisrant.scientopia.org/2019/09/25/finding-orcids-not-as-easy-as-you-think/
We're trying to get ORCIDs for our people. We're going to ask them and all, and we've already searched Scopus for them (found 30 out of ~3000 authors they have affiliated with us over the years) and ORCID itself (up to 125 researchers)... but I see them showing on IEEE (for example)... but not available through the IEEE API. Is there something obvious I'm missing?
tryin' ta scrape the list of IEEE fellows and OMG I think there are 5,000 tabs between each data element
because they can't give me a list because privacy but they can put them on line, 10 at a time, and there are 5k of them alive· Christina Pikas

probably explains why their columns aren't aligned?· Christina Pikas
Oooorrrr they encode individual signature as the number of tabs, so if the list gets leaked they know who's the culprit.· TODO: feathers 10
remember when I said my team made twenty some subject guides in a few days? I just got a special achievement award for that plus other work for that program... and it's 12 times as large as any special achievement award I've received in the past. 12x. 12x.
other team members got one, too, but these things are super sekkrit so no idea how much others got.· Christina Pikas 1

no drama at the DMV - got my RealID paperwork in... luckily they didn't need my marriage license since everything else is in my married name. took about 5 minutes (had an appointment). only minor annoyance was them skipping over the veteran endorsement page for me and trying to insist the old guy next to me should fill it out (he was NOT a veteran, I am - and I had my DD214 with me so now have the endorsement).

so now our purchasing is asking for a raft of FARs certifications (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal_Acquisition_Regulation ) for our journal renewals. the vendors are majorly confused

yeah, this is bullshit. also, it's at FACEBOOK. hell to the naw.· LibSkrat
Leaving aside that, ugh, Facebook: The idea of creating a system to bring order to chaos is appealing. The idea of getting people to use and maintain it is less so. I think these should be two separate jobs: one fixed term contract, essentially a consultant, to do a thorough audit of what's currently there, work out a new system, and implement it; with that implementation overlapping with the onboarding of a permanent position who has the skills and authority to make people use the damn thing, keep it up-to-date, provide training etc.· Deborah Fitchett 3
