Past tense of bullshit?

As in "The other day +Ray Walters​ and I were playing a game while we ___" (the exact phrase that spawned this debate between me and +Michelle Sumner Kriebel​).

"were bullshitting" also works, but seems less fun.

bullshitted or "shot the shit" cause synonyms are fun.

Koush's response as I'm talking about my love of my Chromebook Pixel + chroagh setup.

I do agree, Linux on a laptop is still painful (mostly due to hardware support and lack of great window managers). ChromeOS fixes those problems for me and I still get my full Linux environment (arch) in a chroot.

Every time I try Mac, I end up rage quitting in an hour.
 
All Linux users are really just Mac users waiting to hatch from their cocoon.

I have no idea what is going on with this automatic google music playlist... Comedy + Country + other random things?

The "Happy" song that I started it with is a live irish folksy type song from an album I bought from Mulligans in Amsterdam (http://www.mulligans.nl/).

Later in the playlist it has some O.A.R. and Barenaked Ladies.  /shrug

Huh... This could be very useful. #themoreyouknow  
 
Oh wow. Apparently all S3 buckets are also BitTorrent trackers.
There is no extra charge for use of BitTorrent with Amazon S3. Data transfer via the BitTorrent protocol is metered at the same rate as client/server delivery. To be precise, whenever a downloading BitTorrent client requests a "piece" of an object from the Amazon S3 "seeder," charges accrue just as if an anonymous request for that piece had been made using the REST or SOAP protocol. These charges will appear on your Amazon S3 bill and usage repor...

I'm in. Seems like a great way to spend a buck a month.
 
Alright heathens, listen up. I will be launching my new charity website, WhatWouldHeathensDo.com on June 6 at 6:00 p.m. EST. The site will have of a merch shop with assorted shirts and goodies, with 50% of the profits being donated to charity organizations and random acts of kindness. Now here's the twist: The site will also allow you to sign up and become part of the Heathen Community for 99 cents a month, with 100% of the proceeds collected from subscription fees going directly to charity. Here's what you'll get as a Heathen:

-A weekly newsletter from me, for those of you that want to read more than a few tweets and posts from the J-man.
-Access to a private Facebook group & Google+ community.
-Sneak peak at excerpts and chapters from my upcoming book before it's released.
-Only Heathen subscribers will be able to purchase physical copies of my book. A digital version will be available as well, but physical copies will remain exclusive to members.
-15% off items in the store.
-Access to exclusive "Heathen only" items in the store.
-Discounts from partner sites.

Plus more. I will also encourage heathens in the community to offer discounts and services from their own websites and businesses to other members. That way we can keep the benefits as well as the community growing, allowing us to raise more and more to help others. I'm tired of heathens being labeled as "evil" or "bad" people simply because you don't believe in a bunch of silly bullshit. I think it's time you show everyone just what you can do. I have about 35,000 of you following me across all my social network accounts, and I believe I can get enough of you to dig some change out of your pockets each month so we can collectively make some big changes. If you're interested, head on over to the site and submit your name and email to the mailing list and I'll keep you updated on new happenings with the site and let you know when you can sign up and subscribe. At the very least, please share this post with your friends.

Thank you,
JHC

T-Mobile on a whole is great. However, the employees at this store lied to me by saying that insurance was required when buying a new device. I confirmed that this was incorrect when I called T-Mobile to have the insurance removed. This store also set up a new line incorrectly by adding it as a new individual plan instead of a new line on a family plan; a mistake that would have cost a good amount of money had T-Mobile's online support not fixed it for me. I recommend skipping the physical store for anything other than showrooming the devices. Save the hassle and order the actual device/services online or over the phone.
