New Nougat update for the Pixel C let's Plex work in split-screen mode. (along with some other updates that seem nice I guess) YASSSS.

Sadly still no way to add footnotes with the android google docs app though :/

Doing some serious pruning of asshats on here today. I'm not sure anyone I'd consider worthy of removal would care enough to notice the difference, but if someone does, uh... It's not me, it's you.

BUH BYE.

+Keith Wilson To clarify, I put my political stuff into one collection and my other topics (e.g., cars, tech, LOLs, etc.) into their own collections. My Tech collection has 230,000+ followers whereas my Politics collection only has about 19,000, so I'm convinced that separating out controversial stuff from non-controversial stuff is the way to go. I almost never post things "to Public" anymore...everything goes into a collection.

Got a set of these for the Rift, and after waiting a LONG time they finally showed up.
Took a bit of fiddling to get them sitting right, but they work pretty well. They add a tiny bit of glare in some situations, but since I'm used to that with glasses anyway it hasn't bothered me so far. Much better than trying to squint and strain to be able to see anything. Things are as clear as they can be.
I'll be spending a lot more time in the Rift now for sure.

So, I was trying to make some money in NMS by trading and whatnot, and it was mostly working out, but I accidentally hit a Sentinel ship and had to take out a few to escape, and the spoils were so good I instantly sold my cow of a transport for a fighter and have been raiding container ships since. The space combat isn't nearly as good as Elite: Dangerous, but all in all it's still a good time!

After a week down in 'Merica, I'm home. It's glorious, except since it is hot as hell and the AC hasn't been running, I may melt.

I have definitely done work video calls sans pants. Pretty sure that's standard these days. Pants be damned!

I actually have a colleague that fits the bill. Needless to say, she is working on an entrepreneurial exit plan.

Really loving Skip the Dishes these days... like.. a lot. Maybe too much. What does the outside world look like again? It's kinda bright and open, right? Sounds unpleasant!

What? Huh? Really? How is this... but... um... I'm so in if this actually happens.

It isn't legit, but I've always felt an animated series would be a great way to continue the show. The actors can find more time to record voices in general, and the budget is easier to do. The question is if Joss actually wants to continue it anymore or not. The comic book runs have been good, but not an ongoing series kind of thing.

Got a shiny new ship in NMS. Finally starting to have a tiny bit of storage space to work with.

I like to post a controversial post now and again. If only to leave you sitting on the edge.

Introduction
Generally these days my energy is mostly focused on being a dad.

I also occasionally do some freelance writing, photography, and any number of random geeky things when opportunities arise. Such as the hangout podcast I'm a part of, www.gamesammich.com.

I enjoy very short walks far away from the beach, and tend to spend large chunks of the day in front of computers. Though I do try to find time to read science and/or philosophy related books when I'm not trapped in cyberspace.

Suggestions for circles to put me in:

Tech
Geeks/Nerds/etc
Science
Skeptics
Gamers
