Happy 12017!

Researching some local candidates, I stumbled on Google's (new?) "2016 election ballot" feature. I'm actually somewhat impressed!

In a nutshell: if you search the web for ballot information instead of (or in addition to) leafing through the printed voter's pamphlet, check it out.
It's like a table of contents for the internet searches you'd be running anyway to search online for information about candidates and issues.

As an example, my voter's pamphlet doesn't have info on county officials on the ballot. With Google's ballot guide, the "local" tab has a paragraph explaining what county commissioners do, and list of candidates.
Clicking on a candidate does nothing except run a normal web search, but a really well-worded one that saves a lot of wading through irrelevant results.

(Other similar tools exist, but they generally supply their own content.)

I noticed this too! Unfortunately anything on the local/county level had 0 info.

Hardware for the third iteration of my senior project is coming together – just testing for fit right now.

I have a group with a message that failed to send yesterday.
This morning, I could still view the group but the app would crash if I scrolled up more than three messages (two of which contained images). Clearing the cache did not have any effect on this issue.
As of now, opening that group sometimes crashes the app immediately without even scrolling up.

Thanks for the feedback. We'll look into this.

The app crashes 100% of the time when I tap on an image to view and then back
out into the group. Tap image, can swipe left and right to other images OK, but the moment I back out using the arrow icon in the upper-left or the system back button, GroupMe stops and restarts.

Viewing images from the gallery still works without crashing.

Happily, I've learned not to bring the Internet to bed. Except to play "sleep" music.

Picked up some used kegs on the cheap, to turn into brewing equipment!
Any advice, friends-who-have-done-this-before?

I really only need one or two for my own use; hopefully what I don't end up using can be sold to recoup costs. Heck – maybe I'll find out it's so easy and profitable I'll make it a side business… time will tell.

Phase 1: cut holes for lids. Completed!
Phase 2: polish these bad boys to a mirror shine. In progress…
Phase 3: drill holes. TBD.

Phase n-1: market research.
Phase n: profit!

Figure I'll either make three kettles, or two kettles and a Hot Liquor Tank. Still researching the possibilities, but one way out another I'm gonna be able to brew ten to fifteen gallon all-grain batches!

THIS IS MY FAVORITE GOOGLE EASTER EGG EVER!
Perhaps it's not new, but I stumbled upon this little gem all by my lonesome. 😂

Not so long ago, people were complaining about how enormous UI elements had become. Now I'm hunting for a smaller stylus in order to load/unload capsules.

Because really, why waste valuable screen space that could instead be left pleasantly blank?
