Shimmer is not to be outdone by our new kitten in amusement value. She just pounced on and ate a crane fly.

Newest member of the family! Still just 10 weeks old. His name still hasn't been decided yet.

The sky is not falling. Just because the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear the case between Oracle and Google on whether APIs can be copyrighted does not mean that Oracle automatically won. It's going to be decided for their particular case by a lower court instead, and a similar case could always come back to the Supreme Court later if needed.

Getting kind of tired of all the FUD, hyperbole and zealous ranting over nothing.

I was really dissapointed to see google to adopt java. It is like a herpes of computer world and It finally bit them in the butt.

Learning VBA for getting Excel work done fast
I've been recently picking another programming language: Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) , specifically for working with Microsoft Excel. I'm not going to be coding any hobby projects in VBA any time soon, but it is useful for a few specific things. Bas...

Google needs to get back to supporting Linux users with top notch software. Lack of an official Ubuntu client is forcing me to spend even more money to maintain Dropbox for Business and Google Apps for Business.
Google introduced Google Drive on April 24, 2012 and promised Linux support “coming soon.” That was nearly two and a half years ago. There’s now a somewhat “official” Google Drive client for Linux, but it’s probably not what you want.

At work, I've been learning how to work with VBA macro scripts in Microsoft Excel.  I'm starting to think that I should try applying some of that knowledge to my Psychology of Art experimental data programming instead of the Python script I made, since it's all in Excel there too.

Who wants to build a computer with those eensy-teensy microscopic transistors when the big ones have MORE POWER!

Rather interesting browser game. Note that there are no restrictions on user names though, but there is an option to turn the display off if you don't like what some people pick. This game is sort of like Osmos, but with competitive multiplayer. Try the team mode!

I have the same tablet model and the same problem. Any creative ideas? Selling it hasn't been successful so far, even with a free leather case included.
 
+Katie M. K. Blaede​ and I have an old 2012 Nexus 7. It has gotten to the point where it's slow do to everything (cheap memory that poorly and quickly degraded, a mistake Asus didn't make in the 2013 model).

What should we do with it? I kind of want to repurpose it for some geeky project, but don't have any immediate ideas. Thoughts? :D

I speeded mine up significantly by reformatting the entire system to f2fs and then back in twrp - order is as follows - format system to f2fs then back to ext4 - install a operational rom - format Data to f2fs then back to ext4 then boot up - then follow instructions listed on the nexus system image site (or use nrt) to flash the latest system image. Flash memory will be cleared of crud and it will run much better (not quite like new but greatly improved).

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.

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.

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.
