I finally got around to seeing the Darth Vader gargoyle at the National Cathedral.  Wish I had something longer than a 400mm lens!

I find it needs more swap space or something and had better luck when I reduced the number of installed apps and deleted data (especially my RSS reader, which had cached over 1G). I did this after clearing the cache and restarting as others have said. Much snappier now, though I still miss KitKat and don't see the benefit of the upgrade.

Behold my 10179 falcon completed at last. I started researching how to bricklink this on Halloween. 5100 or so pieces. Hugely fun. I kinda wanna build another one...

+seb shibuya I'd like to see a video of someone moving that fast (one piece every two seconds). Not to mention that, if it took you 3 hours, you obviously didn't work on it all day. Which, if it did take you all day, then it was obviously more than 3 hours. It's a little contradictory there....

Nifty!
 
It's Walky is an early '00s webcomic that is currently being reposted a day at a time with higher resolution and on a non-shitty/broken website.

Today's particular repost really took me back to those days...

The 10179 Falcon was the largest for a few years at a hair over 5300 parts.
The current largest is the Taj Mahal at 5922 parts.
