Danny wonders how both armies stand after the 2013 misogyny wars, and asks why it has anything to do with getting Depression Quest on Steam.

Yadier Molina has a constant Sarah Conner stare. For now we play, but Judgment Day will cull both winner and loser alike.

Punky Brewster's new project -- they claim to have a patent-pending auto-crop tool that pulls people out of photos.  I assume it's partially based on the fact that the background is slightly out-of-focus compared with the people that the camera auto-focused on.

You could also take multiple photos from slightly different angles and just use parallax?  Of course something like the Kinect would do this trivially.

Oooh, or one photo with flash, one without -- that works much less in daylight of course.

CapitalOne 180: Why your debit card may not work at night.

Last night I was left with no way to get money and no recourse. Capital One 360 (formerly INGDirect) thought my $3.95 hotel internet fee to be suspicious, but their fraud prevention line is only open between 8am and 8pm and there is no way to restore one's debit card to working order outside of those hours.

I tried calling the number to report the card stolen, hoping they could also lift the ban -- no luck.

I was then woken up at 9am with a phone call asking about the charge. Their only advice on preventing this in the future was that I should submit a travel report to them any time I leave my state ... sure.

My advice: make sure something else is What's in Your Wallet as Capital One cards cannot be relied upon when the sun is down.

Please retweet or whatever the hell y'all do in the hopes that they might get their act together. I'm generally quite pleased with their service but I clearly need to put most of my money into some other bank. Anyone know of one that works 24 hours a day?

I have recently noticed that many companies no longer have 24/7 service.  Very irritating.
