Can't wait to spin it up in a VM on my MBP

I'm anxiously waiting for it's release - and if pricing is like they say - i'll finally upgrade* all the win7 boxes in my house.

* Assuming the final release isn't rubbish or poorly priced...

Its time to buy a PS4
 
You know what I'm exciting for more than the new Star Wars movie? 
The new Star Wars Battlefront game.

All footage is in game and every character is a player.

Even Darth Vader is a playable character!

It really is; it's the OPPOSITE of Phantom Menace; it's clear, moving, sane and lovingly made by Disney guys who LOVE Star Wars, clearly.

The Litter Box Odor Trade Off tip

In case you didn't know, we have a lot of cats because I'm a horrible foster failure.  They're great - I love them all. We have 6 because my old friend Bud died after 18 wonderful years.

Anyway - the tip.

The trade off here is clumping versus odor. Ok? So if you don't know of or have a way to scoop your litter unless it's perfectly clumped this will be hard.

Take your regular litter and mix it 2:1 with +Blue Buffalo's Walnut cat litter. FWIW - we use this litter exclusively in all 6 of our litter box's except one that one of our cats uses who insists on clay.

So you mix it with the clay and the end result is dramatic odor control. That small amount of the walnut litter soaks up so much odor it's crazy.

Your clay litter won't clump as well as before with the walnut in it, but it's odor suppression will be much, much better.

How to solve the boredom and help fund a manned Mars mission?

Make it mankind's greatest voyage into VR as well.

How about they all get the latest VR technology and gaming gear on board. Yes, it's a little heavy. We can send updated tech on High G boosted rockets if we need to.
As well, we upload all multiplayer video games to them for free.

Their head to head matches are beamed back to us to watch on TV or the Internet.

Also- they could play as a team against earth teams in massive turn based games.

Additionally, they could play as individuals are in pairs against earth players as well.

Gaming companies could sell access the the mars mission builds and kick a little bit to the mission.
People would pay to play on the Mars mission earth servers, and players that rank high enough or are invited by the astronauts 
can play with them.

I'd SO watch mission members playing VR FPS, flight simulators, or games like Descent. 

They're bored? Have they ever played video games?  I mean - can you imagine the awesome sauce of being weightlessly tethered wearing 3D video masks?  It would be incredible to experience but fun to watch, too.

Their kids could work on minecraft worlds with their parents; their families could upload home movies in 3D.  Live 3D with 3D audio could be streamed to them from places like their back yard, or the farm, of the living room, or a mall, or whatever.

I know there'd be lag the further they got away - but that doesn't mean they couldn't take turns with their kids and leave things for them. "while you slept I built this for you!"
 
Martian astronauts will need to be able to withstand the reduced gravity and increased radiation in deep space. And they'll have to find a way to deal with the boredom, experts say.

Call it cabin fever.

If you know anyone who's looking for senior IT help, please consider sharing this with them if you're in the Dallas / Ft. Worth, Texas area. I've worked from home for four years and I'm hoping to find a company that is needing SR technology help and has an empty office. I'd discount my block rate and do the IT help in trade for an office I could use.

Someone could let me use an office and pay me below market rate to address their IT needs or they could pay a consulting company market rates who then pays someone with a fraction of my expertise / experience to do it with half the efficiency. That's my value.

http://dallas.craigslist.org/ndf/res/4961352579.html
I just can't help but think there's someone who's paying thousands of dollars a month for IT consulting they're not really happy with yet also doesn't feel like they have enough work to hire someone...

I think Hillary Clinton is unelectable

I think she's got way too much baggage. The Democrats and the left are running away from her like she's got Ebola.

Perhaps we shouldn't be trying to destroy her so hard before she has the nomination?

Then we agree - that's exactly the point I was making. I think she's unelectable. You're right, the hard left, anti-right, vote would pull the lever anyone on an approved ticket.

I had an almost IDENTICAL experience!  I really miss the emotional, non-weird Star Wars I knew as a kid.

Hey Network - If you do sales and are looking for work - here's a great, fun, virtual company looking for someone to do sales.

Also, if I may, a chance to work with a genuinely great person and leader in her space. the CEO Beth Standlee.

For starters: "TrainerTainment operates in a virtual work environment. This position requires candidate to have an in-home office."

That's right - wanna work from home; almost anywhere? They've been around and they're established.  I just can't say enough good things about this group of people.

My wife and I have know Beth for a while and she's always full of energy, ideas, and passion.  We went to a trade show in Las Vegas with her and besides being a speaker to a packed room, everybody knew her and jostled to bend her ear and get her input.  She was recently invited to speak at a convention in Paris.

I can promise you this if you're good at sales and considering applying for this - Get ready to do something fun, network with industry leaders, engage with fun people, and make some money. 

Trainertainment does something so many companies want and need; they help them boost their ongoing revenue by coaching them towards better sales oriented training of their staff.  Their clients benefit because their staff learns techniques to upsell customers without feeling uncomfortable. You have very likely gone somewhere with your family and been impacted by them indirectly. 

They help instill a natural sales culture within their client's staff then help them maintain results by leveraging a cloud based system that reports how well the client is implementing training.

Anyway - I'm posting this for her because she's a friend and she's looking for a salesperson who can work at home.

False Science  - 
 
pHraud - Check THIS out.. FTA:

Members of the global science and lay communities have begun to learn of the confirmed omission of 80 years of instrumental data from contemporary ocean acidification (OA) scientific products. The missing ~2 million data points comprise a majority of the world’s historical ocean pH measurements.   The data was replaced without disclosure, by a model hind cast. The substituted history, known as the FEEL2899 report (1) was itself used as the technical basis for testimony to the US Congress (2). In turn, OA mitigation research funding was augmented, and the regulation of anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions was strengthened and deepened.
