Windows 10 looks like KDE more than KDE looks like KDE.

Now that I'm done with summer classes, I can get important things done. Like getting a haircut and downloading extra characters for Super Smash Bros. 3DS/Wii U.

First time in a long time I've stayed up all night working on studies. Normally I'd be passed out from sleep deprivation at this point, but for some reason I'm still wide awake this time. Guess it's those impending summer semester final exams in a few hours that are giving me all this energy.

After these exams are done and I come back home from work tomorrow though, I intend on having a nice, long nap.

Yeah, my original Pebble's screen is really acting up now. And its warranty has been expired for a few months now, so I don't think RMA is an option.

Maybe it's time to get a Pebble Time. But what to do with the old one?

They still will. They replaced mine even though I purchased it used on eBay over a year earlier.

The #pebbletime   #smartwatch  is now available for purchase at $199. I would get one, but my original Pebble is still working great.
Find out why CNET, Forbes, and The Verge are calling Pebble the tech gift for Holiday 2014.

Upgrading my parents' computer to Windows 10 (from 7). Let's see if this breaks anything.

Nope, nothing's broken. It even kept GRUB intact!

Does anybody still use/develop for Enlightenment on Linux? I was a little surprised to find something about EFL through The Daily WTF.

Yeah E17 is the lesser evil than E19.  Bodhi 3.0 went with E19 and the dev regretted it; the next version is going back to a thoroughly tweaked E17.

Trying to convince my parents to get a single network printer in our house to replace all of our separate cruddy/broken ones for each separate machine. They don't get it.

My Pebble's screen has been acting up almost daily now. Stop tempting me to get the Pebble Time...

Recruiter hacking on GitHub with Python. Not my thing, but perhaps someone else might like exploiting the system and become a Rockstar Programmer! 😄

Story
Tagline
Ubuntu user with many side projects.
Introduction
I have been a user of Ubuntu since 9.04, and am usually running whatever the latest development release is on my laptop. I am using Ubuntu GNOME on my desktop. Although I'm not currently using it, I'm also an elementary OS fan. I am currently an undergraduate in computer science at Lawrence Technological University in Southfield, MI.

I typically am kept quite busy with school and work, but I also have a few side hobbies, which include hanging out with friends online, coding, bike riding, and teaching myself Esperanto.
Bragging rights
Fixed a few Ubuntu bugs; constructed my own personal website from scratch; maintainer of the Chocolatey packages for EASy68K and gdipp

Good food, friendly service

The store layout is confusing, and my #3 Totally Tuna came without the bean sprouts. Service was just okay; not good, but not bad either. There's a Jimmy John's in Sterling Heights that I like better.

My favorite place for BBQ. Their sauce is good, and I really like their fried okra!

I got the ribs and was quite disappointed. They came out tough, dry and chewy, with a hard shell. They weren't very tasty, either. For $11 for a 1/3 slab, they were quite the letdown.
