Pop Culture and Radiation

From a historical perspective it makes perfect sense that, here in the 21st century, there tends to be a lot of misinformation about radiation and nuclear science in general. American comics liked to use radiation at a magic catalyst for pretty much everything. Quite frankly there has been very little accurate information with a wide circulation among the general public.

From a scientific perspective this drives me absolutely mad.Collapse )

Delicious, Pinboard, and timestamps.

I realize no one actually reads this journal since I never post in it, but I thought it would be a good idea to put this out there since everyone else has been really helpful about the whole Delicious fiasco.

So as many people noticed, if you exported a copy of your bookmarks from Delicious after the changeover, all of your timestamps were ruined. I thought I could live with this, but after I imported to Pinboard I realized that I really, really couldn't stand it. In desperation I tried exporting a copy of my bookmarks from Delicious today. This time the timestamps were correct.

At some point AVOS fixed whatever error was causing bookmarks to export without timestamps. If you want to quickly check if your copy has timestamps, open the html file in your browser, then go to 'View' -> 'Page Source.'

This will open a file of the source code. In it, after each link, there will be a line like this: ADD_DATE="1317139087" Now go to a link you KNOW you bookmarked on a different day and check the number after ADD_DATE. If it's the same as the first one your timestamps are fucked up. If it's different they're probably fine. (You can also see if all your tags are correct from the source code. They're listed after the timestamp.)

If you've already imported a copy of your bookmarks sans timestamps into Pinboard it's pretty easy to fix if you haven't added any bookmarks that aren't in your Delicious. You can delete all the bookmarks in your account and just import a copy with timestamps.

To delete:

Go to 'Edit', Select 'All Pages' and then 'Delete' to remove all the bookmarks in your Pinboard account.

For other help with Delicious, Pinboard, and Diigo, Bookshop has made a post of general information and links here and Cherrybina has made another one here. In addition to the stuff mentioned in those two posts there is also a google doc of fandom suggestions for improving Pinboard that Pinboard's owner is reading.

Emergency Bookmark recovery:
If Delicious completely ruined everything Brownbetty has a potential method to recover deleted bookmarks and Seperis has outlined how to check if your bookmark information is really gone.
