Last night: stay up wayyy too late putting together a four-digit high score to be proud of in DIVE. Today: show the game to +Mary Conger, who quadruples my score on her third try.

Everybody, go do this for your parents.

(Edit: Where "this" means "decide if this is the right tradeoff for your security model". And also "call to say hi.")
 
This might be a good time to check this box in your Chrome settings.  Apparently it's off by default.

Apparently Morgan Freeman and Antonio Banderas costarred in the worst heist movie of all time.

Anyone else out there on +Duolingo? +Mary Conger and I have resolved to polish our exceedingly rusty French.

(It figures that the one app that doesn't try to automatically locate/connect/spam all my contacts is the firsyt app I actually want to.)

I used it for Spanish. It was good for brushing up on grammar and practising written translation, but not so good for listening and speaking practice.

Does anyone know of a fork of Bitcoin Wallet with more user-focused development? I'm thinking specifically of the lack of any option to avoid running the background service at startup, or to change the transaction fee. I assume the authors of Bitcoin Wallet believe users are better off without these options, but they're deal-breakers for me. I'm happy to make the code changes myself but I wanted to first check whether someone else has already done them. Thanks.

I was disappointed in both the quality and variety of the tuxedos, and the knowledgeability of the staff. I went to Arthur's Formal Wear instead and had a much better experience.
