I can definitely understand why they would make this recommendation.

OpenBSD is a bit more overwhelming that FreeBSD or, especially, PC-BSD. I remember struggling with it a few years back.

Over the past few months, I've been thinking about deleting my G+ account or, at the very least, cutting back on its use. To be honest, I spend more time on Twitter and I'm going to start using my Diaspora account much more. I'll keep the rest of my Google stuff going, of course, but I'm not going to be around G+ much, if any at all. Most of the comments I've been receiving, lately, have been very negative and I just don't feel like dealing with them anymore.

Like I mentioned, I'm over on Twitter and Diaspora. The username is the same for both accounts:@chadmccullough. Hope to see you there!

I think that a whole lot of us know that being vegan or at least vegetarian is much better for us and for the world. This kind of information helps us see just how much difference it can make.

We know that and we know the factory farming of our meat and dairy is disgusting. We think it's harder than it is to do better. Quitting any habit is hard but in the end this change is one we can get to. I just eat smarter and try not to excuse it when I support disgusting factory farming practices.

These are getting a bitch much imo. I'm not really big on preaching propaganda..  No offense.   Im all for eating more plants and veggies, and cut most meats personally, but man have eaten animals since they walked the earth.   And health wise, not all humans do well on a  100% vegan diet, just like some don't do well eating meats.

This is so touching! Bentley is Corinne DiLorenzo’s 9-month-old pot-bellied pig and resident of EARTH Animal Sanctuary, a rescue that she founded. In February, Bentley fell deathly ill. He had a seizure that left him in a state of shock and was diagnosed with a rare bacterial meningitis. He was given a 10% chance to […]

That's heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. 

I sing to my pigs all the time. It helps calm them and reassure them, especially Shadow who's deaf and blind on his right side. 

Thanks for sharing that, +Lynn H.  <BIG hug>

A key factor in the evolution of content management systems is open source development, which has contributed to the transformation in several ways.

A few weeks back, I announced my "semi-retirement" from G+, and stating that I would only post occasionally. Well, that's still true but I've decided to add to that. I'm only going to post about bicycling and Linux/BSD/FOSS. I'll be removing circles, today, so if I disappear from your radar screen, my apologies in advance. As before, you can still find me on Twitter and Diaspora (@chadmccullough).

No worries, +Thomas Pfeiffer. It's very easy to get really busy in this day and age. :-)

I know the Joindiaspora site is a bit overwhelmed, at the moment. I may move my account another pod or just set up my own. It's very, very slow right now.

If you don't like reading things like this, you can either remove me from your circles so you will never read this kind of stuff from me again and live in your own pollyanna world...

...Or you can stand with millions like me and fight for the rights of all animals.

I understand you. Really, I can't say to you if it have happened or not... But if it haven't we can treat it as a myth must be treated: as a tale not intented to describe a fact but share wisdom. We modern men have forgotten long ago how important and powerful such kind of tales... Our minds need them, for being focused just on facts that actually happened is as dangerous as religious fundamentalism - because it is a stance of last. In Philosophy we call it "objectivism", or " the worst thing ever Germany gave to Philosophy", and it means putting material, actual facts in an altar and denying truth to other forms of knowledge.

Summing it up, even if that tale +Chad McCullough​ have shared with us is false, I still agree with it because it is truer than denying it. Forget facts, meanings are what make life meaningful.

Not surprised at all.
Earlier this week, the Animal Justice Canada Legislative Fund filed a false advertising complaint against Maple Lodge Farms based on shocking hidden-camera video obtained by Mercy For Animals Canada exposing horrific and illegal cruelty to animals at the company. According to the complaint, Maple Lodge Farms is deceiving consumers and blatantly violating several federal and provincial laws by illegally torturing animals while at the same time tou...

+David Kutcher I am 99% sure this is not the first time I see you make a dumbass comment (joke?) in one of Chad's post about compassion. Do you do this on purpose or are you just that much of an asshole?

If you use Linux and ZFS, they just bumped the version from 0.6.3 to 0.6.4, with a ton of bug fixes, not to mention new features.

I'm a Freelance Web, Linux and FOSS Consultant. I believe that everyone should have the right to do what they want with their software and not have their hands tied by companies like Microsoft and Apple and their Closed Source, proprietary software.

I'm a Socialist/Green, Vegan, animal-rights advocate, earth lover, anti-guns and anti-war.

Hands down, the best coffee shop in Belleville. There are other coffee shops in town but they don't even compare. The owner and employees are the friendliest people around, they have Vegan options for frozen yogurt, they serve homemade breakfast sandwiches with, again, Vegan options, and the coffee is locally roasted, organic, and single-sourced. This is a downtown treasure that my family and I LOVE supporting (almost on a daily basis).

Old Town Coffee Tea & Spice is exactly what my wife and I have been looking for since we moved to the DC Metro area almost two years ago. We love good coffee and the selection here is wonderful. Whole bean, many choices, very affordable and the staff is very helpful. It's located in Old Town, Alexandria, which is a very nice bonus since I'm always looking for excuses to go there. We will be going back again and again and telling all of our coffee drinking friends about this place.

I love Irish Pubs (good Irish Pubs) and O'Connell's didn't disappoint. My wife and I are new to the area, having just moved here from Indianapolis and love finding new places where we can hang out and have a good beer. Located in Old Town Alexandria, this pub fits right in with the "old charm" of the neighborhood. The staff is very friendly, the decor is wonderful (dark woods everywhere - looks very Irish), the food is very good (but as a Vegan, I would like to see more options). My favorite, and only real option, is the hummus/veggie platter, which, is very good. For $8, you get enough to feed more than one person. They have a great beer selection on tap but I would like to see more local selections. At the time of our visit, there was just one local beer on tap. Also, it would be nice to have wireless connectivity available. This would be a great place to come for a beer early in the afternoon and get a bit of client work done. Overall, I highly recommend O'Connell's and I am absolutely positive that my wife and I will be back again and again. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the lack of Vegan food options and the lack of wireless connectivity.

My wife and kids and I spent a beautiful November day at the Eastern Market. Regarding the food, I'm a Vegan and there really wasn't anything for me but my wife and kids found some great options. The shopping is the part of the visit that we enjoyed the most. We just moved to the area and we were looking for some local art to hang on the walls. We met some great local artists and purchased some great art. We are really looking forward to our next visit. The Eastern Market is definitely a gem in a great city!

4 months back, I was in the market for a new web host. I had tried many of the larger hosts but none of them really impressed me. I experienced many outages with no explanation as to why the outages even happened. I decided to start looking at some of the smaller companies hoping for a better experience. I moved my site to IQnection and I couldn't be happier. Great customer service and my sites run great. In the 4 months that I've been with them there has only been one outage and, as it turns out, the problem wasn't even with their equipment. Customers were updated regarding the issue via social media until the issue was resolved. That is exactly the kind of service that I was looking for. If you're in the market for a new web host, I would definitely give them a try. They are very affordable and offer some great plans.

My wife and kids and I spent a beautiful November day at the Eastern Market. While there, we decided to try brunch at Tunnicliff's Tavern just across the street. Our visit didn't disappoint. Great food, excellent and friendly service, great atmosphere and some great beer on tap. The only complaint (and it's really not a complaint) is that there weren't many choices for local beer. Add a few more local selections and there wouldn't be a reason to eat or drink at any other pub/tavern in the neighborhood. All in all, an excellent visit and we can't wait to drop in again.
