Wow, what an improvement in picture quality. Logitech should have built them like this by default. After a 1/8 clockwise focus adjustment the macro range is still very good, and the infinity focus is excellent.

I'm using the guvcview application on Ubuntu 14.04 which allows you to turn off the LEDs and manually set the focus if you need to. Auto-focus works fine too, but for my application a fixed focus is better (no focus hunting).

It is actually quite interesting to look back to see where you have been lately.
 
The maps are here: https://maps.google.com/locationhistory/b/0

Google has an amazingly accurate account of everywhere I've been, by car and by bicycle and by foot, for each day. I can pick some day last month and see exactly where I traveled. While it could be used as a huge invasion of privacy, I kind of like having this info, as long as I always have the choice to switch it off. I spent a half hour reviewing everywhere I've been every day all summer when I first discovered the site above. Very cool, and very scary.

Nice graphical view of timezone differences.
We create beautiful, insightful visualizations from data. Data is a powerful aid in decision-making but only if it is properly analysed and effectively communicated. Many insights lay undiscovered because the data is not explored. Many decisions remain uniformed because analyses are poorly ...

Energia, the Arduino IDE for Texas Instruments MSP430 micro-controller family now supports the CC3200 wifi SoC.

I was able to download and run the Blink example to the CC3200-LAUNCHXL using my Linux laptop (Ubuntu 14.04 LTS).
Energia is a rapid prototyping platform for the Texas Instruments MCU Launchpad. Energia is based on Wiring and Arduino and uses the Processing IDE.

Some of my Linux gaming nostalgia from the late 1990's. Got these out after the Key Note talk by +Ryan Gordon at +SouthEast LinuxFest 2014.

MythTV Usage Stats

My MythTV box is approaching 6 years of use and has recorded 3,316 episode. That is 3 months worth of Free Over the Air television.

I can honestly say that we did not watch everything that was recorded, I don't have time for that much garbage. I will note that the MythWeb statistics fails to show the number of TV Advertisements that were automatically skipped, which on US TV is quite a lot :-)
