Strong, but careful to not draw attention away from his wife, whom everyone was there to see.
He may lack current first lady Michelle Obama’s upper arm strength, but he makes up for it with a nice head of hair.

Adrian,

We hope this finds you enjoying your summer. It was wonderful to see many of you at the 2016 USENIX Annual Technical Conference in June in Denver, [...]

I don't remember being in Denver this year, but apparently my clone army was there. I hope they took notes.

A handy reference for ticking off on day 100.
 
If you ever want to feel extra anxious about Trump being an actual presidential candidate (with a very real chance of winning on top of that), this Reddit compilation of links to interviews and videos where he's just straight up being a literal fascist should do the trick.

Instant want.
 
Yes, this is an Hodor doorstop, need I say more? As I’m writing this, already 522 have contributed to this kickstater going way over the required $5000 to successfully fund the project. My friends and I are huge GoT nerds. We know more about Westoros…

Between Unknown and the Taken series, I'm growing suspicious that Liam Neeson has an agenda: to convince Americans that it's dangerous to visit Europe.

Trump is planning to delegate "domestic and foreign policy" to Pence. Will he get the "The buck stops here" sign too?

Introduction
I'm a computer scientist (software developer, network engineer, and system administrator).
Professionally, I'm interested in distributed systems, formal methods, quantum computing, security and the process of engineering reliable software.
Personally, I'm interested in aviation, law, ethics, politics, mathematics, psychology, and new learning experiences of almost any kind.

My favourite word is mamihlapinatapai (each expecting the other to do something first). It narrowly edged out rawa-dawa (the sensation of suddenly realising you can do something reprehensible, and no one is there to witness it).


Bragging rights
I have a gold medal with my name inscribed on one side and "FOR SCIENCE" on the other. I estimate that I was the *Youngest Person in the World* for 250 milliseconds. And, of course, I was TIME magazine's Person Of The Year 2006 and a winner of the Nobel Peace Prize 2012. I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

I wish I lived in Miami so I could make this place my regular gym! I visited from overseas because I'd heard good things about the trainer Lazaro, and he lived up to that reputation. He gave close attention and improved a lot of little things in my technique that my regular CrossFit trainers had overlooked. I came away from this with better fitness and knowledge.
