Emma just shouted to Bri in the other room, "Come, Bri. Let me show you who will be your cousins!"

The good news: 2 months later, ran 5k for the first time in my life, averaging 9:05/mi.
The not-as-good news: while the app thought I should be able to do 100 pushups in a row by now, I haven't been able to top 60 yet.
Ami Fischman originally shared:
 
Inspired by +Guy Fischman's commitment to working out & eating right, and prompted by +Justin Uberti's RunKeeper friend-request, I decided to finally pull the trigger on a long-time dream: become a Runner(tm).  
As in, be the sort of person who (non-sarcastically) says: "I'm gonna go for a run".  And then goes for said run.  All casual-like, too.  
While I'm at it, and since running is going to take way less time daily than my current gym regime ("stay on the elliptical until it says I've burned 2k calories"), I decided to also throw a push-up challenge into the mix.  

Posting this here so it'll be more than just Katie mocking me if I fall off the wagon. 

Current goals:
- Run: 5k
- Push-ups in a row: 100

They all seem to be having lots of fun.
Nana seems to glow when she looks at her grandchildren.

Spring 2014 Cake Decorating products
Yes, all of these were edible, cakey, and delicious.

(kids these days get the best after school activities....)

Paperless statements would be so much more attractive if each transaction triggered a mobile app notification so they could be dismissed as appropriate in the moment, instead of requiring a monthly review.

+Bank of America +American Express what's up with the fact that each of your apps can be configured to provide alerts (or SMSs) for a bevy of conditions, but not for "charge pending from merchant X for amount Y"??

(BofA comes closest, but for some reason(s?) doesn't do "pending", and requires minimum amounts to apply)

That is one of the basic shortcomings with ultra-modernization - the speed of recording often requires post-facto handling (often very cumbersome, and usually extremely unpleasant and time-consuming) of otherwise simple issues.

Posted by a colleague in response to the question "what should I tell my non-techie friends/family about heartbleed.com?"
I liked the phrasing so much I'm reposing it verbatim.

Updatehttp://filippo.io/Heartbleed/ to verify particular sites of interest.

Over the next few days they should avoid doing any sort of banking, shopping, or other security-relevant activity online. It will take time for those sites' security teams to upgrade their software and revoke their certificates; until that is done, nearly anyone can be a MITM for yourbank.com. Certificate pinning won't help us, since attackers would have legitimate copies of the server certificates. If your friends need to do something security-relevant online, then they should use a wired connection[1] from a trustworthy location[2], take as little time as they can, and make sure to log out[3] when they're done.

I'd bet money that over the next few weeks someon will figure out how to leverage compromised certs into an effective phishing campaign, so your friends should be extra careful about links they receive in email.

We've basically been put in a temporary wormhole to a '90s hacker movie, where all the ridiculous stuff like ripping raw passwords out of a remote server is actually happening.

[1] Unless you feel like teaching them the difference between WEP and WPA2.
[2] Their home is probably fine. Their library, internet cafe, hotel business terminal, or local Starbucks are not fine. Their workplace is fine if they work at a tech company.
[3] Lets hope that the server invalidates its session token on a logout.

+Mike Brau yes.  Note that part of the reco is being on a network where you have reason to believe DNS isn't being spoofed, too.
