Shocker of the day! Even though +Charter Communications did a bunch of work in our neighborhood, recently, our Internet still goes down daily, and multiple times a day. It just happened again. Thanks for the great service, Charter.

Wow! Holy crap! This is what happens when you're given "power" and you don't deserve it. 
Jesse Hagopian was talking on his cellphone after delivering a #BlackLivesMatter speech when a Seattle police officer sprayed him in the face. He's suing the city for $500,000

Oh, boy... :-)

In a world where both software and hardware frequently become obsolete right on release, two rival programs can stake a claim to being among the longest-lived applications of all time. Both programs are about to enter their fifth decades. Both programs are text editors, for inputting and editing code, data...

Canonical has announced plans to switch all versions of Ubuntu to its new Snappy package manager. The new tool offers the promise of greater stability and security for the system and applications. Snappy already is used in Ubuntu core, a minimal version of Ubuntu intended for use in the cloud, on mobile devices and in embedded systems.

Bullshit!
The agency's old No. 2 says leaks about the NSA allowed the terrorist group's forerunners to evade U.S. electronic surveillance.

Thanks for catching that, +Roger Sherman. I meant compared to others that have done far less. I'm on half brain power, today.

Sadly, ones who receive food stamps aren't the lobbyists... otherwise, those numbers may be reversed...

+Richard Brown Well, Tumbleweed does have Plasma 5, so the screenshot isn't exactly wrong, it just doesn't fit the headline

+Chad McCullough Indeed, a good community is probably the most important thing about any distro.

What a nutcase. 
At the International Day of Prayer this morning, GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson told the audience about the time God helped him ace his college chemistry final exam by giving him all the answers in a dream.

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.
