    Which browser do you use? I think the latest bookmarks usually settle at the bottom. But any three would do.

Chrome. And yes, they do settle at the bottom of the folder but I have different folders and just recently moved some bookmarks, so it's kind of hard for me to know which ones were the most recent.

    Looks like you are very much into geography! Super interesting!

Hah, thank you! :) I'm actually more into history but those two kind of go hand in hand.

I don't know if those are the three most recent because I have no idea how to look that up but they're quite recent:

MAPfrappe allows you to compare the outlines of different countries/cities/regions by projecting them onto Google Maps. You can even create your own outlines. Very useful to get a feeling of how a big certain region really is.

Resemble.js basically like diff but for images. Lets you compare two images.

Geacron an interactive map of how the world looked (politically) in a given year. Really useful!

I'm still reading The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared in Swedish! It's my first book in Swedish, so I never read more than about 10 pages per day but it's quite an entertaining read and I really notice how much I progress in Swedish.

Last week I finished American Gods (though I haven't read the additional novella at the end yet) which was quite a nice read too.

I've also put The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making on my phone so I have something to read when I have nothing better to do and just my phone with me. I'm only three chapters in but liking it so far!

Not very active at the moment but I can recommend 1111 Comics. Some of my favourites:

#198 Cat in a box.

#189 Have you ever seen Earth from space?

#192 Bearded dragon

#162 Apple tree.

#154 The spread of ideas.

#145 *we

Yup, now it works. Thank you! :)

No, the problem still persists.

I tried Google Chrome 45.0.2454.15 beta (64-bit) and Safari 7.1.7 both on Mac OS X 10.9.5 and Chrome Mobile 42.0.2311.111 on Android 4.0.3. I even tried accessing Hubski with a VPN.

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I haven't used my account in years? Maybe my profile is still in an old/incompatible format?

Nope, I tried refreshing, logging out and in again, a different browser - nothing changes. I even looked at the source code. There really is nothing else there, so it's not a CSS bug, for example.

Yeah, it's because it links to a user page ( http://www.youtube.com/user/coachella/live ) and Hubski tries to embed it.

EDIT: As a workaround you could disable video previews in your profile.

Okay, for some reason YouTube blocks that video in Germany...

My guess: Left is real and right is rendered. The colour of this table plate just looks weird...

Impressive results anyway!

I'm using DDG occasionally and mainly for its goodies (which are awesome!). :)

Still it's IMO much too slow. Hope they'll improve that in the future.

I read xkcd [1] since ~2 years. It's about pop culture, technology, math/physics, language, etc.

I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one here reading it. :D
