Yeah, so this is in Java 8.   Cool.

For only $2.99, you too can think this is a good price.
I admit, I succumb to a lot of these practices.

Some of these foreign subway stations look more like scenes from a Kubrick film.

Overheard: "The name is too fancy; why didn't they just call it The Smith Institute?"

We are living the future!   A friend rode one of the new Metro trains and took this photo.  My question: what does the display look like when it's near the end of the line? are 4,5,etc. just blank?

I tend to run warm. I could really use one of these wrist-sized personal temperature units. They're estimating it could be another year before it goes into production. Company site is here: http://www.embrlabs.com/
(apologies for the Yahoo news link)
See how a watch-like device can cool your entire body like an air conditioner.

Fabulous exhibits. Check what time they are doing a demonstration of the Difference Engine. It's fascinating! Also, i really enjoyed the IBM 1401 room. This is a super place!

Everybody loves doughnuts and Krispy Kreme is the best at making them. This Krispy Kreme is always clean and bright. I love hanging out there with friends, sitting on the sofa and chatting while enjoying an original glazed. The employees are typically pleasant. The only downside I've noticed is the espresso machine seems to break down too often.

Braddock station is well kept. Note that there is very little official parking there but it's usually not hard to find parking in the surrounding neighborhood for a few hours in the evening. On hot summer days just take the first available train (whether yellow or blue) a couple stops closer to DC so you can wait underground where it's cooler while you wait for your desired line.

This is a great little spot if you like a little variety in your pizza. The Calzone Ring is a circular calzone with a ramekin of red sauce in the center. Delicious and perfectly cooked. They prepare everything fresh so if you're in a hurry don't expect to drop by and get it to go; it's better to call ahead or have them deliver.

Teaism is one of those friendly, hidden gems that combines a peaceful atmosphere and great food. There is a huge selection of tea flavors. My typical fare is the yakatori chicken and a chai shake (ask for it to be made with chocolate!). Stop in if you need a break after a busy afternoon on the National Mall. There is a lower level with more tables so the place is larger than it first looks.

The "new" and expanded Ray's location has not lost any of the flavor. The burgers are cooked to perfection and have a good selection of toppings even if you don't want to spice it up (but of course it's better if you do!). If you have a chocolate shake with your lunch be prepared to slip into a delightfully satisfying food coma later in the afternoon.
