Learned that both my wife and I have unofficial Erdos numbers of 5. We are both connected to different people in MathSciNet that have Erdos number=4. My son used to have a Bacon number of 4, but that was before when they used the IMDB database, and now it is based on Wikipedia. Oh well.
Should I continue to investigate using the Harzing Publish or Perish software? I've never used it. Is it now superseded by anything else better, or easier to use?
Well I finally did it. I deleted my https://ello.co account.
The dog (Rook) is doing better after his surgery. Assuming he lives another 95+ days (till about December 1), then I calculate that the money spent will be worth it. Maybe Rook should post some pics to his twitter account to let all of his fans know that he is doing ok. https://twitter.com/rookthedog
Does anyone have a good scholarly article that reviews and/or compares and contrasts Sci-Hub vs Library Genesis (LibGen)?
This one might be ok. https://asistdl.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/asi.23445· Joe
I was gonna rec the first one you already posted. It's a terrific piece.· LibSkrat 1
Thee first one is a good article. I asked him in Twitter about if there were issues with doing the research and he was like no, I'm french, lol· Christina Pikas 4
In other news, the kid is back for his 2nd year of college as of yesterday, and the dog is recuperating from his expensive dental surgery yesterday. He is sleeping lots today. Now for a Celebration of Mines!
WOO-HOO MINES· LibSkrat 2

Happy that I found that the wayback machine has a copy of the Downfall Friendfeed video. https://web.archive.org/web/20150909231026/http://scholarlykitchen.sspnet.org/2009/08/11/facebook-acquires-friendfeed-hitler-throws-a-fit/ via the scholarly chicken, unfortunately.
I’m jealous of my wife today. She went to a Tufte meeting in Denver. I guess there were hundreds there, and Edward Tufte ran the meeting as the expert sage on the stage. He did not recommend any hashtags for those live tweeting the meeting. So, he uses old fashioned teaching techniques and doesn’t appear to be social media savvy at all. I was disappointed to hear that. She reported back that she learned a lot. The four books are probably going to be placed at her office instead of at home, since her office paid for the seminar. Yes, that box did hold all four books.
Any of you kids know what these plastic sheets are for? In going to throw these away.
This is when I tried to figure out the flow chart of journal names and dates (splits, mergers, renames, dates, call numbers, etc) that emerged from the Journal of the Chemical Society. (1861-1965) This is not near as good as that French journal cheat sheet, but maybe I will try this in my spare time.
I changed my twitter password, and revoking access to various other social media services. IDK, should I revoke service to and with FriendFeed?
ER. Kid sliced finger helping me cook dinner. Damned can of sloppy Joe sauce. Grandparents in town, so now he can't play instrument for Colorado all state HS band. Shitty luck. All my fault for having him use the evil old can opener. Just bummed out.
Well, my sister-in-law just finished her brain surgery. Looks like a type 2 or type 3 tumor. (Walnut sized.) They are sending it to the Mayo Clinic for testing. That may take a week or so for results to come back if it is benign or malignant. She is still not awake as far as I know. My wife travelled back to IL yesterday in time for the surgery, and she will stay till Saturday night, but her sister will still be in the Hospital probably till Monday or Tuesday. Thoughts and prayers appreciated, but not medically necessary.
I hope that all goes well with her recovery.· John B.
Thoughts and prayers sent. Also, hoping that all the medical necessities go very well.· Galadriel
Sending thoughts and prayers as well.· jsholman

She is awake and talking. Good news.· Joe 10
