I made a cool little "Internet of Things Printer" and brought it to the wedding of my friends Maria & Patrick this weekend. Press once for a love quote and twice to print a photo of the happy couple. Congrats to Maria & Patrick on an exciting new life together and thank you for giving me an excuse to solder! If you're in the loving spirit this week too, you can build one yourself for under $200 and use my source on github to customise the quotes/image.

The Montréal McTavish Reservoir has been undergoing major renovations. Here are a few pictures/panoramas I took yesterday. You'll notice that the top, which is usually covered in sod/grass for sports, is currently a big brown sandy covering to the large underground tanks which holds all the water for downtown and a surprisingly large surrounding area.

Funny I also took a panorama up there recently. I'll share mine. I think the beach / volley ball potential is being drastically wasted. Guess Mcgill students / staff agent creative enough.

This +Corsair liquid cooling module shipped from NCIX in 1 day, took me about an hour to install and has dramatically dropped my CPU core temperature. I was getting warnings averaging 78 degrees C, now even a stress test can't get past 50! (I was not paid to post this, I'm just a genuinely happy customer.)

A clear photo of Pluto 9.5 years in the making and well over 5 billion kilometers traveled.
 
After a decade-long journey through our solar system, our New Horizons spacecraft made its closest approach to Pluto today, about 7,750 miles above the surface -- roughly the same distance from New York to Mumbai, India - making it the first-ever space mission to explore a world so far from Earth.

Damn squirrels keep going through my plants when I put them outside in the morning, so today I've enlisted the help of the BBQ. Now I'm watching closely to see the squirrel climbing strategies so I can build more defense.

On a Monday afternoon this place is surprisingly populated, though usually there's a place. However, for each of the 3 or 4 times I've come to this Eggspectation there has been an absurdly long wait after ordering. Sides like fries or toast are often cold because the main piece of the dish wasn't ready yet and they just sort of let it sit there waiting. The tables are wobbly, smokers everywhere on the patio/terrace and the prices aren't worth the nonsense. Go to the other Eggspectation if you must eat at this chain.

I am really into brunch, and I've got to say this place is a good value for Montreal. I have lots of friends who aren't as enthusiastic about breakfast food but they were able to find more lunch-like meals on the menu. Service was friendly, but like most Montreal restaurants the water glass is the size of a thimble and you have to constantly summon service for a refill (Edit: I went again and they gave me carafe of water and refilled almost incessantly. Updated to 5-stars). Coffee is really strong, but not in a bad way.

I am a very patient and forgiving customer, but I honestly had to wait so long at this Tim Horton's that I ended up just leaving because so few patrons were being served in front of me in line.

3 Stars because of the service. Food is generally good, coffee (both fancy and regular) were cold, but the cost is quite low overall. Food portions aren't the biggest, but you can easily order more stuff (and I suggest you do order an extra bread/baguette for a larger quantity). There was an odd but noteworthy 'burnt' taste to the baguette on any place with a tiny shard of burnt blackness, but maybe our batch was just odd. I wish they would simply give a carafe of water, because the waiter seemed pretty busy and couldn't really refill our glasses. I would come back here because the low cost almost makes up for the lack of service, just order everything you might want at the start and hope for the best.

The Mexican drinks (Pina Colada, Mojitos, etc.) weren't the best, but the food was fresh and delicious and generally great value. Good menu selection and service is kind.

I've been to every McDonald's in the area and this one is by far the slowest service and most chaotic queuing situation. The only positive note I have to say is that the staff does seem to try their best to settle people who are rowdy, and since it's not the most docile area I'll have to hand them that. The fries are usually fresh, probably because being so close to the metro gives this location high throughput.
