Well, finally got CM12/Lollipop/Android 5 on my +OnePlus One, and this is mildly infuriating.

In 4.4/CM11, you long press the power button and have 3 options:
1- OFF (still shows notification light, and of course your alarm will still function)
2- VIBRATE (all alerts vibrate, notification light flashes)
3- ALL ON 

For some reason they decided to fix this and now have
1- NONE (no sound, light, or alarms)
2- PRIORITY (notification light, alarms, no call/message sounds)
3- ALL (everything on)

If you want vibrate you have to do another step and either turn the volume all the way down or hit the ringer icon in the volume control. 

This is many steps backwards for the notification system. It didn't need fixing!

Lots of new ones going on my list of IPAs to try.
After weeks and weeks of tasting IPAs, we've chosen the absolute best out of 116 entries.

+Stone Brewing Co. is reformulating Ruination. Not discontinuing!
So far, 2015 has seen a flurry of activity here at Stone. This is nothing new. For several years, we’ve been hard at work debuting beers at a rapid and voluminous clip. But this year’s been different. In addition to introducing new brews like Stone Delicious IPA, 2015 Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine – Extra…

Those poor cones....

Loved this one:
the brakes... work... but might take some planning...
 
On this retro episode of Ignition, we revisit a Legend, the 1975 AMC Gremlin on its 45th anniversary.

Will it hold up in our testing procedures?

I just took a trip to the center of the Earth.
How far would you have to travel to reach the Earth's core? And what would you see along the way? Discover what lies beneath...

I started at Kiryu Aikido in 2009 after training for over 15 years in a variety of styles. I enjoy the consistent attention to basics and weapon work (staff and wooden sword) and how the weapon movements help our open hand techniques. Andrew Blevins sensei constantly pushes us to improve by both focusing on technical details and working just outside our comfort zones so we can continue to move forward in our understanding of aikido.
