The kid next to me on the rollercoaster said he wasn't scared. Unfortunately the video of our ride proved him a liar with his screaming mom behind me :) I almost paid 45 dollars to save his video from the Rock It coaster. Wish it was about half as much....

Run DMC followed by Rammstein followed by Three Days Grace. I actually have the same play list as the Rock of Vegas. ..

Testing out this Dropbox type clone, as I do use Barracuda for my company's backup and restore (and it works real well).. and copy.com is from Barracuda.

+CyanogenMod + Chromecast

Chromecast all the things? That's actually possible.

I added some framework extensions to +CyanogenMod to let any app which plays audio/video using the MediaPlayer to be sent to the Chromecast.

This supports both local content (stuff on the SD Card) and remote content (podcasts).

Public transportation hasn't picked up in the US because it is so unreliable. Embarrassing that a huge metro service like RTC Southern Nevada has no bus for over thirty minutes when there should be one about every ten minutes.

Pathetic. Another day another half plus hour wait for a bus supposed to run every ten minutes. RTC Southern Nevada is an embarrassment to Las Vegas. The people here deserve better; forget the tourists.

I re-hosted all ten thousand+ of my pictures on Flickr. It was a close heat between hosting them on Flickr or on Google+ but went with Flickr since it seems much more focused as a photo sharing site.. and with 1 TB I can basically use Flickr as my cloud backup for all my photos (in addition to Google+ which backs up my phone photos).
