The Boston Business Journal reports problems with the Globe's new printing presses in Taunton have caused problems at the Herald, which the Globe prints.
I was all set to complain about Dan Shaughnessy returning to his stupid "tomato can" fixation in his piece yesterday about just how badly the Celtics did (sorry, Dan, the German for "tomato can" is not "tomato can"), but, no, if I'm going to get all ranty about a Globe columnist today, I'm going to get ired up about Mike Ross, because, unlike Shaughnessy, Ross really should know better.

Chris Wysopal reports the Globe has closed the incognito/privacy mode loophole that used to let people read unlimited numbers of articles online without a subscription.
The Boston Business Journal reports that for the second time, a buyer has walked away from the Globe plant on Morrissey Boulevard that will soon be empty of people as the outlet moves its publishing operations to Taunton and its editorial and sales departments to State Street.
A copy of the memo to Globe staffers about the move to 53 State Street floats over Dan Kennedy's transom; staffers will start moving out of Dorchester in June. Shocker: They'll no longer be allowed to have their own min-fridges. Bonus: They will have access to a 12th-floor roof deck.
The Globe writes today that since 2009, at least 11 bodies have been recovered from the water surrounding Boston and that the last one was that of Zachary Marr, whose body was found in the Charles near North Station a month after he disappeared from a downtown bar.
The Globe is wrong on both counts. Read more.
Brad Nailer was doing some work on a house in West Roxbury and came across some copies of the Globe and Herald from 1963.
Back then, help-wanted ads were segregated into two main categories: Male and Female: Read more.
The perils of publishing an edition for a state 1,000 miles away: The Fort Pointer has a friend vacationing in Florida, who forwarded a photo of the front page of the Boston Globe's early Florida edition.
If you're one of those people who just can't quit Shaughnessy, you might be thinking he's using the phrase "tomato can" a lot more these days. You might even think he's getting carried away with it and maybe should find another way to say "loser."
You'd be plum right. Read more.
Dan Kennedy has a few specifics on Globe Editor Brian McGrory's reinvention plans, which include abandoning the "paper of record" idea (so less boring crap) and going to a more 24/7 news model (which sounds like "digital first" for you media types), complete with a new "express desk" to handle it all. Oh, and:
The old barriers separating the newsroom and business sides will be rethought. ...
As usual, Dan Kennedy has the memo from Globe Editor-in-Chief Brian McGrory, who is promising more details in days to come.

Sean Graham has been a bostonglobe.com digital subscriber for years. His wife decided she wanted to start getting the actual Sunday paper. You'd think that would be easy. You'd think wrong. Graham describes, in excruciating detail what happened this past week, in the course of numerous phone calls and online chats with Globe reps: They cut off his digital subscription, reactivated it, then then gave it to somebody in Wellesley, then they didn't deliver his Sunday paper today. And they still haven't gotten his delivery address right.
Yesterday, the Globe ran a story about the charter-expansion results in Boston with the headline: In Boston, charter vote reflected racial divide.
Yeah, because black people voted overwhelmingly against the expansion of charter schools. Unfortunately for whoever wrote the headline, the map the Globe ran right under that headline shows that white people voted overwhelmingly against charter expansion as well: Read more.
The Krafts think the old Bayside Expo Center, now owned by UMass Boston, would make a great location for a Revolution stadium. And Shirley Leung, on the rebound from the Olympics, swoons.
Some may say I have never met a stadium I didn’t like. But I really like this one. What’s most exciting is the opportunity to build something different in a part of the city that could use an economic jolt. It’s not another strip mall, big-box retailer, or luxury condo tower — and that’s a good thing.
Bidding for the sprawling Olympics tore the city apart, but a Dorchester stadium could be the project that brings everyone together.
Seems its new offices at 53 State St. need more work than expected, so the Globe is staying in Dorchester until mid-year, the Boston Business Journal reports.
I’d read enthusiastic reviews of the creme brûlée, and hoped it would turn the mood. Unfortunately, the brulée tended more eggy than creamy without a hint of vanilla, and was disappointingly runny under an anemic burnt top. I’m not sure when confectioners’ sugar was last considered a culinary flourish, considering that it comes in a $3 box at Star Market, but someone in the kitchen thought a couple shakes would look nice. Unfortunately, much of it went up my nose when I took the first bite.
When's the review of Durgin-Park?
