for the record: The new Android and iOS apps for +Sonos, pardon my klatchian, suck.

I want to quickly adjust the comparative volume while playing in a few rooms? Lots of clicks!

Ungroup, but keep music playing in one room? Apparently not possible anymore in the app!

There were a bunch of other annoyances, but basically, Sonos ruined the user interface of the one thing that makes it great: Multiroom.

(The desktop app is fine btw. Please, +Sonos, don't ruin this too!)

tl;dr: Naomi Wu is indeed a real person and Dale tries to make things right, starting with acknowledging that he did wrong.
That looks a lot more like a genuine effort at understanding the serious damage that +Make: have caused to the maker community and their own credibility.
I'm also very happy to see that it's an apology that Naomi can accept.

so.. Justice League.

It's not the grimdark thing we saw in Man of Steel or Batman vs Superman, but has the superhero banter one would expect. The villain isn't that impressive, or memorable (and to a german, Steppenwolf is just a silly name), Flash is still young and unsure where Batman is old and grumpy, but the ensemble works.

There's lots of deviance from canon, but I really didn't care, because the pace was pretty tight, the banter worked, every hero had their moment in the sun and the movie (if only just so) even passed the Bechdel test. Not a cinematic masterwork, but a thoroughly enjoyable movie.

+Carsten Skansen tipped me off on Grand Designs, a show that puts all those "laugh at a homeowner trying to fix something" shows to shame.

Instead, each episode follows one inspired building project from start to conclusion, often spanning a timeframe of several years. It inspires and entertains, showing that building a house isn't just about having solid walls around you.

And most of the folks portrayed are quite nice and you root for them to get their dream house together. Except those twats from Season 12, Episode 1, who needlessly ripped out the original tiled floor from a 1920's Cinema building in South Yorkshire. Fuck those two! :)

(observation of the day: Amazon doesn't want Google+ traffic anymore. Because instead of getting the preview picture, I only get "Bot Check". So, deal with that folks, here's the link in plain: https://www.amazon.com/Morningwood-Everybody-Loves-Large-Chests-ebook/dp/B076NSQ6JT )

Just finished reading "Morningwood, Everyone Loves Large Chests" The book offers everything you'd expect from such a title, and at the same time is something completely different. If you had fun with Piers Anthonys Pornucopia, this book will get more than a few chuckles out of you. I won't give away anything from the plot, but rest assured, it's hilarious. A bit gory, a bit filthy and all around nerdy as the protagonists are quite aware of the RPG rules governing their life. (But this is not one of those books where characters meet players. For all we know, there are no players in the books world)

I'm actually eager to see this continued!
