Tonight. Come hang out, I'm recruiting ALL Poe-Key-Mahn(sp?) players to Enlightened that I can find there
 
http://fondulaclibrary.evanced.info/signup/EventDetails.aspx?EventId=4361&lib=

Ingress is an augmented reality game that people play on their mobile devices based on the idea that aliens are already among us. Players choose to embrace alien culture and technology by choosing the side of the Enlightened, or they fight against alien oppression by choosing the side of the Resistance. Players battle across real territory, fighting for possession of portals attached to local cultural monuments and locations. FDL will be holding an Ingress meet and greet on July 21st from 6pm to 8pm in the Civic Complex, were people can meet high level players, learn the basics, and choose their sides.

Can I just give a penny to NASA directly? Seriously, if we had a fund source we could give $1 towards the manned mission to Mars project, NASA would be sending a rocket with people by next year.
We strive to increase NASA's funding to 1% by encouraging popular support for NASA through education and outreach.

Time Sellers!!!  Closed Caption - Voice to Text Irregularities

Something I just stumbled upon... I was watching a playlist on my Chromecast and noticed how bad the closed captioning was, so I went to the PC to get some screen-shots and the CC was much better.

Try this video on your chromecast and desktop starting around the 2:09 mark

Description says it all. Let's get Joey back home. I'm confident this was a setup.

http://www.plumfund.com/fundraising/lets-bring-joey-home
Joey was taken from us by accusations from an abusive and controlling ex. His innocence is overtly apparent! He made the choice to leave the ex with bravery despite facing lies and detrimental accusations. He is trusting the justice system and the truth to set him free. We need to help him retain and pay for legal assistance. We know that Joey has made each and every one of you laugh, smile, or has quenched a hunger pain you've had. "All it ta...

Crowd-funding for specific scientific research. Still more digging to do, but on the surface this looks promising.

can we just remove the capslock key now?  Watching someone type with capslock on or using the capslock key to enter [capslock]P[capslock]assword is soooo... disconcerting.  Long Description does not HAVE to be LONG DESCRIPTION people!
 
Good God, first postage is getting cheaper, now NWS broadcasts will use lower case letters? What's next? WHAT'S NEXT?
WOW HERE'S SOME GOOD NEWS FOR ANYONE WHO THOUGHT THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE'S ALL-CAPS DATA BLASTS WERE A LITTLE BRUSQUE IN THIS LOWERCASE-FRIENDLY INTERNET AGE. ON MAY 11TH, THE NWS WILL SWITCH...

Introduction
Comment on my posts and I may add you back, I subscribe to the asymmetric following theory.

Summary

  • Electronics Engineer
  • Many types of geek:  Electronics, Computers, Woodworking, Metalwork, Outdoors, Automobiles, Mechanical, Boating
  • Jack of many trades, Master of a few.
  • In a lifelong pursuit of knowledge.  At-least enough to be dangerous in most things
  • Willing to tackle any challenge, but humble and smart enough to know when it's time to call in the experts or buy/borrow/rent the heavy equipment
  • If the task can be accomplished by someone who's not a 10 year veteran with millions of dollars worth of tools, I will usually attempt to learn the skill, buy the tools, and do the job myself
A few specifics
  • Build my own computers and networks
  • Do all my own home repairs
  • My Chevy truck has 302,000 miles, mostly self-maintained.

Preferences
  • Operating Systems: Ubuntu Linux, Android, Windows
  • Electronics CAD: Altium P-CAD 2006 (Heavy dislike for the new designer platform)
  • Automobile: Chevrolet Trucks, Dodge Cars
  • Tools: DeWalt, Craftsman, Stanley, Fluke, Agilent
  • Sports: Those I'm actually participating at-least peripherally in
Work Duties
  • Design schematic and pcb for new electronic products
  • Lead product teams for new product designs
  • PCB design and layout
  • Software specification and testing
  • Mechanical specification and testing
  • Life cycle testing
  • Component selection and sourcing
  • Equipment maintenance, training and support, Robotic and Non-Robotic
  • Design for Manufacture
  • Product safety & FMEA
  • Standards based design: UL, CSA, CE
  • Support production of current and legacy electronic products
  • Industrial machinery consulting for Plastics assembly
  • IT and phone infrastructure and support for my remote location
  • Data retention

Rooms were nice and clean. Staff friendly. Valet parking was responsive. Close to many nice restaurants and bars. We were on the 10th floor and getting hot water flowing into the shower took a very long time initially. You don't normally expect too much for continental breakfast at a hotel, but we regularly choose Hampton partially for the better than average breakfast and Saturday was severely disappointing and Sunday was only OK compared to expectations.
