The latest blind tasting from +Paste Magazine. CO breweries Station 26 (Juicy Banger #44, Space Wrangler #20) and Weldworks (Juicy Bits #8) had a strong showing!
It took months of planning and weeks of tasting, but we've blind-tasted a whopping 247 American IPAs, and have determined the very best of the best. Read on, and discover your new favorite India pale ale.

What's more counter-intuitive than disabling the buttons to make them work? Yet that's what it takes to have functional media keys with Chrome (google music).

So glad I found this. Before applying the fix I could hit the play/pause button once and it would work. After that no worky. 
GNOME 3 tries to steal the play/pause buttons from Chrome but you can easily bring that functionality back in GNOME's settings.

Try the aikido!
Public - a year ago

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.
