Porch, once you get to the 2nd page, the URL has a page number. Right now the end of the URL looks like this:

/comments/page/8/#comments

Once you're to the 2nd page, there's a 2 where the 8 is. Just but another 2 in front of that, Typepad will change the 22 to 8 and get you to the last page.

Extraneus

Doesn't have to be 22, btw, just a number greater than the last page.

exdemocrat

What's the trick, IG?

Ext just covered it exdem.

exdemocrat

OK, thx

Threadkiller

Go to the address bar and change the page number only trick:

If this was the last page when you last checked in:
"http://justoneminute.typepad.com/main/2015/02/geez-was-the-senate-democrats-torture-report-politicized/comments/page/3/#comments"

Add a "0" after the "3." Internet magic tries to take you to page 30 and when that page isn't found you will be returned to the most recent page.

This trick makes some debates seem less tedious.

Threadkiller

Ext nails it.

exdemocrat

All I can say about Reid's beat down is that I wish it was me that gave it to him.

OK, glad I got that off my chest - now back to my regularky-scheduled lawerly curmudgeonliness.

Threadkiller

Ig, if you highlight the long URL and then hit the right arrow does the page number show?

Miss Marple

This is a wonderful trick! It will be helpful on my iPad, and handy when I log on in the morning and there are like 10 pages!

You can use it Iggy with the -> button. It doesn't work on IPAD MM.

Thanks! I actually did know about that one. I was just hoping there was one that didn't require scrolling down to go to the second page.

Someone on twitter just said to me "Let me guess: you're a lawyer".

I'm not whether I or lawyers should be more offended. :/

centralcal

I still use Greasemonkey/narcisolator on my PC's (work and home). Always takes me to the last page. Sadly, there are no quick and easy navigation tips for the iPad.

Miss Marple

Well, dang about the iPad!

This explains why I rarely post from it, unless I am forced to through circumstances like travel.

Some Guy

I was just hoping there was one that didn't require scrolling down to go to the second page.


It's not super easy, but if you substitute for ".html" at the end of the first page url address with "/comments/page/99/#comments" it will jump to the last page of the thread.

Danube on iPad

Been a lot of long threads lately. Bummerooski.

Danube on iPad

How 'bout that new Browns helmet logo? Now there's a franchise on the way up!

jimmyk

Iggy's comment about the length of the thread title suggests he's using an iPad or iPhone where you can't see the /comments/ part of the URL if it's too long. If it's close, you can backspace till the page number shows, then retype whatever you backspaced over.

I suspect there's a way to automate what Some Guy said at 8:02. I have a script that jumps to the bottom of a page, but going to the last page requires something specific to typhus pad.

From the dopes that had a "black lives matter" sign in the rotunda today, protestors will disrupt committe vote on RTW. The committee will vote to cut off testimony at 7:30 (8:30 JOM time), the idiots will pitch a fit until police haul them away.

Jane, the unions are putting up a lame sequel and the media is fluffing away like their lives depend on mayhem. The committee just voted to send RTW to the full senate, debate & vote tomorrow.

If you bookmark page 2 on your ipad, can't you edit the url from the bookmark?

DrJ

Iggy,

Probably Firefox's worthless toolbar all cluttered up with other nonWindows junk.

Click on the address bar, and hit the "end" key. Most keyboards have that, and it takes you to the end of a long URL. Then you can edit as you please.

Threadkiller

For that matter, you could edit a bookmarked url to page 99. It should go to the last page every time you select the bookmark.

henry

Aha, nicely done! The Senate committee shut down RTW testimony and voted early -- before the union's planned disruption could start. Thus no vids for the morning news. Also floating around on Twitter, a former Dem Lt Gov candidate quoted Mike Tyson to the assembled goons on the Capitol steps "everybody has a plan, until I punch them in the face." big talk, futility instead of action.

Threadkiller

Ig, I have used the other trick to start at the bottom comment and refresh from there when I click the time stamp of that comment.

When I do that, it changes the url to an address based on the comment, not the page. The resulting address is 50miles long with no page number component.

Is that what is happening?

jimmyk

Windows PC junk.

Shouldn't be a problem in Windows/Firefox. Don't you have the URL in a box at the top (just under the tabs)? You should be able to click in there, then hit 'end' to get to the page number part of the URL.

Rick Ballard

Henry,

The union goons should have paid attention when the SkullBrite truck made a special delivery of conditioner and polish this morning.

The vote in the Chicago mayor race is interesting. Only 25% of the precincts remaining and Emanuel is at 45%.

daddy

"Axelrod did say that faulty intelligence allowed ISIS to grow out of control."

Has the President acknowledged that ISIS has grown out of control? I haven't heard that.

Has the President acknowledged that ISIS is therefore no longer "JV"? I haven't heard him walk that back.

Has the President identified who specifically in the Intel Community gave him that "faulty Intelligence"? And replaced him? I haven't heard him announce that.

How do you know "Faulty Intelligence" was responsible for allowing ISIS to grow out of control if you were not working for the President when that fact came out? Who did you hear it from specifically? If the President has not acknowledged it, and you were not working for him at the time, why should we believe you?

Do you know of any other President who was mislead by "Faulty Intelligence" re: The Middle East?

rich@gmu

evening beasts ...

Rick Ballard

Emanuel would have to take 60% of the votes remaining to be counted. He can't do it.

Miss Marple

daddy,

I think you should apply to Fox News when you retire from your flying days. You could be a consultant who simply gives them some intelligent questions to ask.

I don't think Martha McCallum did very well interviewing Axelrod this morning. Your questions would have gotten some interesting responses from that creep.

Rick, I didn't know the Chicago vote was today... no wonder the protest crowd was so light, the bus people had other places to be.

Jim Miller

What infuriates me about Obama's Keystone XL veto is that he claims still not to have made up his mind on the merits, that he was just issuing the veto because of "process" considerations. (The original application was in 2008,)

So I dedicated an old pop song to him. (And I'll apologize to our Canadian friends, once more.)

daddy

Hmm, should we take that as an admission by Axelrod that Barry lied when he repeated faulty intelligence and called IS a JV outfit?
Isn't that precisely the same line of logic we've heard repeated ad nauseum about W for about 12 years now?


I see that as usual Iggy beat me to the punch, and said it better, too:)

DrJ

I missed Kerry's Opinion piece in the WSJ the other day, but it prompted this wonderful letter. It is long.

As a former corporate speech writer, I chuckled at this seeming parody of a speech sprinkled with hollow buzzwords and action phrases. The more I read it, the funnier it gets. If one has nothing real to offer, use the important words: “global conversation,” “best practices,” “global partnership,” “proactive,” “concrete alternatives,” “empowering leaders,” “transform the environments,” “building alternatives,” “identify the zones of greatest vulnerability,” “tailor our efforts,” “target our resources,” “envision a future,” “positive progress,” “funnel more resources, creative ideas and energy,” “catalyze a global effort,” “but let me be clear,” “send a clear signal,” “we will not cower,” “we will prevail” and “we charge forward.”

I’m surprised he didn’t conclude by saying, “At the end of the day. . . .”

DrJ, did they print that letter? That's great, and it would apply as well to any of Barry's speeches. I will distribute it to students. I remember last year having to convince some students not to use "At the end of the day" in their papers. They insisted there was nothing wrong with it.

But it just now occurred to me that it would be easy to change the lyrics to make them even more appropriate.

Muscians here can correct me, but the song doesn't strike me as a hard one to do, with lyrics revised for Obama.

Dr J that article gave me a great idea. Thanks

Watching the BBC on the hotel TV. They are harping on a new Climate Warming Story, telling us that the Sea Level along the Northeast Coast of the US rose something like 128 millimeters between 2009 and 2011. They are playing it up as a consequence of the rise in Greenhouse gas put into the atmosphere by humans. The Chinese scientist being interviewed says something like it had not happened to this degree for at least 850 years previously, and that the models tell them that this will continue over the 21st Century.

Haven't read the story yet, but the BBC Newsreader seems to be enjoying relating it. If it hasn't hit your TV yet, stand by.

daddy,

Do they ever consider the fault lines that run along the northeast coast (Palisades, N.J. is on the edge of one.) It could be that the land is slightly sinking, rather than the sea rising.

That difference might be indicative of a coming period of tectonic activity.

You can create "bookmarklets" for both the ipad and iphone. I have one that jumps to the end of the current page and one that jumps to the last page of the current thread. I keep them at the top of my bookmarkers. Moving around in JOM becomes simple. The bookmarklets contain java scripts that execute when you select them. ie. select bookmarks, select $JOM. I'm not sure I can post the whole script here easily but my $JOM bookmarklet looks like:

javascript:%20var%20url%20=%20window.location.href;%20%20url%20=%20url.replace(/%5C.html/,%20'/comments/page/100/');%20url%20=%20url.replace(/page%5C/%5Cd+/,%20'page/100');%20window.location=url;%20avatars%20=%20document.evaluate(%22//div%5B@class='comment-avatar'%5D%22,%20document,%20null,%20XPathResult.UNORDERED_NODE_SNAPSHOT_TYPE,%20null);%20%20for%20(%20var%20i%20=%200;%20i%20%3C%20avatars.snapshotLength;%20i++)%20%7B%20%20%20%20avatar%20=%20avatars.snapshotItem(i);%20%20%20%20avatar.innerHTML%20=%20'';%20%20%7D%20%20comments%20=%20document.evaluate(%22//div%5B@class='comment-content'%5D%22,%20document,%20null,%20XPathResult.UNORDERED_NODE_SNAPSHOT_TYPE,%20null);%20%20for%20(%20var%20i%20=%200;%20i%20%3C%20comments.snapshotLength;%20i++)%20%7B%20%20%20%20comment%20=%20comments.snapshotItem(i);%20%20%20%20comment.style.marginLeft%20=%20'0px';%20%20%7D

Save a bookmark, select the above string, edit the bookmark and paste the above where the URL would go. Not as easy as a dedicated down button but beats the pants off of scrolling.

The end of page code:

javascript:scroll(0,document.getElementsByTagName('body')%5B0%5D.scrollHeight);

Chicago news:

Chicago Mayor Forced Into Runoff

Mayor Rahm Emanuel fell short of a majority needed to win re-election here Tuesday as voters dealt a set back to the nationally known politician who will now face an April runoff.

The Ecommunist gave him a very favorable column on Friday.

THE GOP CAPITULATES(AGAIN!)

It's in the nature of your basic righty to run away from a fight. It's like their genetically programmed to be softer than Democrats.
The Republican is weak.He has no character.He is timid and needy.He runs away when he should stand and fight. The Republican's wife does not love him because he is weak.When the Republican makes love to his wife she pictures him being a Democrat. She pictures a winner because it is more satisfying.The Republicans children smile when they see their daddy but secretly they are ashamed of his ideology of weakness. They secretly wish their father were a Democrat.

From the wayback machine:

“At a September 2007 public hearing in Chicago, Senator Obama submitted a statement that he ‘strongly requested’ the FCC ‘put out any changes that they intend to vote on in a new notice of proposed rulemaking,’” Chaffetz wrote.

A month after his September 2007 statement, Sen. Obama submitted a letter to then-FCC Chairman Kevin Martin arguing that the “proposed timeline and process” used by the agency to adopt rules are “irresponsible,” noting that while a specific proposal “may pass the muster of a federal court, Congress and the public have the right to review any specific proposal and decide whether or not it constitutes sound policy.”

Haven't seen any mention of IPCC's Sexual molester Pachauri resigning. But I have just now turned on CNN and Amonpour us doing a segment called "Why Do People Question Science."

She is playing people saying they doubt vaccines, then playing Walker not responding about Evolution. And some US congressman saying"The Cliate Has Always Changed."

Now she has on Simon Singh of Britain saying politicians should go to the Scientists to get the best evidence from them, so the entire show is a very thinly veiled attack on Republican's and Conservatives and Walker in particular. Amonpour is loving trashing Republicans. She is playing up a National Geographic story about people not believing Science.

No mention whatever so far about sexual molester Pachauri.

Now Amonpour is asking "what is the danger of these false beliefs." Singh is saying Climate Change will effect our children and grandchildren, and says he is depressed that some AGW promoter is no longer in the Brit Governor to influence politicians.

Now Amonpour is going after Soon, saying he was payed by Oil companies to fight against the AGW meme.

Amonpour says "it is a question of Life and Death."

Singh replies "Absolutely.")

Segment ends with no mention of Sexual Molester Pachauri.

Amnpour then immediately turns to a new Science Report showing how the Gerbil was the culprit of the Black Plague, not the Black Rat.

Can't make this stuff up. Joseph Goebbels could have used a gal like Amonpour.

Up on Orange Avenue about fifteen minutes ago, about a half block from McP's I was approached by a young reporterette from the local NBC outlet who told me about the Routh verdict and asked if she could interview me. Sure. How did I feel? Like the jury got it right. She said she had just come from McP's and couldn't find anyone there who would take the opposite view. I told her I thought she was looking in the wrong town. The cameraman laughed out loud.

You'd think all these clowns who use terms like "Science Deniers" and other nonsense, could actually mount an argument without a complete reliance on logical fallacies.

Oh wait, I guess that question answers itself.

a pull quote to chew on

>>>We live in an age when all manner of scientific knowledge—from the safety of fluoride and vaccines to the reality of climate change—faces organized and often furious opposition. Empowered by their own sources of information and their own interpretations of research, doubters have declared war on the consensus of experts. <<<

the anti-vaccine hysteria was ginned up by a lawyer and a British medical journal with a helpful assist from Hollywood. Was it ever a major concern? Vaccine rates are still well over 90+%.

the safety of fluoride ... good grief the example they give is Portland. It has a studied weirdness all its own. So weird it is a play and tv show.

The moon landings being faked started with this guy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Kaysing
and picked up by people around him after his death. Unsurprising that that event would be questioned regardless of any evidence produced.

and since when is science only consensus ... continental drift and plate tectonics weren't consensus but they revolutionized geology in just a few decades.
