Chicken with wild rice and cranberries, first time I've tried this from the Simply Nigella book and it was lovely and so easy to do.

After spending my free time working on a Docker image for an ELK stack to analyse my router logs this rings very true. Though mainly doing it to learn Docker.

Stack Overflow is the last place I'd expect to see Star Wars spoilers but that little other networks box on the right shows questions from other networks! Be careful if you're looking for dev help and still haven't seen it yet!

Lego Brick exhibition today with +Luke Easter​​ at the excel.
Amazingly we both came away without buying anything, though I am tempted to start collecting the Lego modular buildings.

Yes, willpower was very strong today which made a change for both of us.

After over 5 years of developing Android apps I finally gave widgets a go. Added them to my How Long Till app to remember all those important dates right on the home screen.

I'll have to have a look at stack widgets though I'd struggle to find a use case for any of my existing apps.

I've been playing around with Docker on Unraid for a little while now and wanted to create my own Elastic Search ELK stack.  I ran into some issues with all three applications running in one container and resolving the Elastic Search IP address so wrote up my way of dealing with this in the hope it might be useful to someone else.

A few hours spent with +Luke Easter​ building his Doctor Who set this afternoon. I was allowed to build the Daleks :)

Netflix socks that pause your streaming when it detects you've fallen asleep. Could do with some of these, though my Nexus player that I mainly use for streaming doesn't do infrared.
Netflix socks automatically pause your show when you marathon-watch yourself to sleep. MakeIt.Netflix.com

I really like the look of the Pixel C but at close on £600 for the 64gb model with keyboard it's just too expensive considering I only bought my Nexus 9 just over a year ago. Given the bad reviews regarding the lack of multi window support, which will come later, I'll just wait for the price to drop drastically mid next year and reconsider then.
Shop at the Google Store for Android phones and tablets, Chromebooks, Android Wear, Chromecast, Nest, plus a selection of accessories.

+Lloyd Arkell no surprise at that from the verge though even they said the hardware is very good, even comparing it to an iPad which is high praise from them. I think it's ahead of its time and the OS needs to catch up with multi window and more apps need to be tablet optimised.

Just watched episode 10 of Heroes Reborn thinking it was the finale but no, there's 3 more episodes to air in January.  No wonder so many shows get canned in the US with such massive gaps between episodes.
Quite good though, just hope they continue it.
