For many of us that work with electronics it is sad to see Radio Shack close it’s doors for good in Benicia and around the country. For so many years it was the place to run to in an emergency when you just needed a switch or resistor to finish out that…

Feels like the 80s all over again. Oh, and you should watch Micro Men if you are interested in UK computer history. https://youtu.be/XXBxV6-zamM
BBC proud to reveal micro:bit -- a tiny, ARM-based board aimed at education. Venerable broadcaster to give away a million or so micro:bits to every Year 7 student in the UK. But will kids keep them?

Yeah. Unfortunate but every social network has it coming. I moved for fb to twitter to here (dumping the previous network for the newer one). Though I have one foot in Reddit too these days. Curious to see what happens.

+Jason Honingford I know, right? This was a really big deal though at the time as Atari was new. Apparently according to reddit and the source herself, this was won by Becky "Burger" Heineman (FKA Bill Heineman) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rebecca_Heineman

Dr. Sampson gets 5 stars, but the opticians are awful. I tried to get progressive lenses here and after a few tries with obviously flawed lenses they said there was nothing else they could do and wouldn't refund my money. Take your prescription with you and get it filled elsewhere.

This Starbucks is really nice and the inside is one of the nicest I have seen. Very surprising given the neighborhood it is in. Wifi is fast and there is plenty of seating.

Always fresh here. I usually skip the fries because I am full after the burger. Breakfast isn't bad either.
