Years ago before I started working here someone reserved to IP addresses for the IT desktops. And then also assigned hostnames names to them. 

One was minion, and mine is pong. 

I have upgraded machines, but kept the same static IP and the domain name with it. It has been handy maybe three times a year. But I don't run services from my desktop so not really. Anyway I got a surprise when I sent a request to the firewall group for a rule to their for my static IP and needed to know my IP address. So I did what anyone would do to get such information. 

$ ping pong

Tears.

Very good deal on a 128GB Lexar microSD card complete with USB 3.0 reader. Not the fastest or smallest USB drive, but good deal none the less.

This is exactly how I have described this book to everyone who asked about it.
I have never seen a work of fiction so perfectly capture the out-of-nowhere shock of discovering that you've just bricked something important because you didn't pay enough attention to a loose wire. |< · < ? > >|. Preorder: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indie Bound, Hudson ...

I have officially moved from Hangouts as my dialer back to Google Voice + built-in dialer. And I am a much happier person because of it.

I want all my calls to come from my GV number. I want all my texts/MMS to come from my GV number. Hangouts promised this with Dialer. Then again when Dialer was able to announce itself as a dialer to the OS (to make it the default dialer). These changes sort of worked. But the thing that still doesn't work is using Google Now to send a text. Texts go out of hangouts but use my SIM number. The calls worked fine for the most part, but if you switched from wifi to LTE or even wifi antenna in a few instances your call dropped.

Now if I can just start using Messenger instead of Hangouts I think I will be a much happier user as well.

I just can't believe that Hangouts won't "sync" carrier-based text messages to the desktop like Yosemite or Continuum - instead forcing me to use PushBullet.

Am I wrong to think that +LastPass already does this for me? And not just for Google but every. single. website that I authenticate to?

False positives are always a bad thing. But that doesn't mean those users aren't wrong.

Well this is just all sorts of awesome. A lot of it seems like a couple Find and Replace's would work. But the Date/time layout changing is cool.

That is a great test. Using punctuation that it might assume to be containers for the actual data.

No reason to go to any other theater in Madison now. It really is the best place. Great prices on movies a couple times a week. Awesome leather electric recliners in every seat. Great sights and sounds in all theaters. A few major issues since they have opened up though. 1) This place is chaos when you get in. You may have pre-purchased tickets online only requiring to print of your reserved seats tickets, but finding the machines can be odd since they are just placed off to the right when you get in. There are only two, and the lines to either have never been clear with everyone trying to get in or trying to leave all in the same place. Once I also had a manager of sorts (he had a suit on) print my tickets off his hip printer when I showed him my tickets on my phone. They should really just take my phone tickets at the ticket tearing station to clear up space at the door. 2) Concession issues. The madness spills over behind the counter, everyone back there is running around in a popcorn haze. Sometimes orders are filled quickly other times not so much. I waited 10 minutes for a cup of black coffee while the hot chocolate/coffee/espresso one touch button machine behind the counter was being serviced all for a sub-par cup of coffee. Not recommended. Also their ICEE machines clog. Every time, my experience has shown blue raspberry to be particularly difficult to work with. Red works 80% of the time. I have never tried Pepsi or whatever cola flavored monstrosity is on the other end. I haven't seen anyone else either. I believe it to be the original cola flavoring from opening weekend. When I asked for a refund when the ICEE machine was clogged I was promptly refunded. 3) In the not ULTRA DLX theater the lights that are left on during the movie are distracting. Particularly there is one that casts a light on the middle of the screen. This is unacceptable. All in all I still think this is the best theater experience in Madison, go and try it yourself.

Great breakfast place. I don't think there is anything I wouldn't like from the menu.

Fun entertainment. Plenty of food, lacking in drink. I was only offered a refill of my Ale once, and it was the first course before I had any medieval lemonade in my mug. Enjoy this clip of the action you will see at your trip to Medieval Times.

Liked the business class happy hour Liked the decor I felt like I was staying at a very clean hotel. The single room did seem a bit cramped, but this is downtown Chicago. If you book here first get a Kimpton account for free and then you get free wifi and at $10-20 gift card to use at mini bar in your room. Better than nothing.

Great place to drop in an grab a meal in Sun Prairie. I don't think this place gets the business it deserves for the quality of food they serve. I love their small plates promotions.

I wish there was a 3.5 stars. Better than 'Okay' and not quite 'Liked it' material. I use this shop because I live in town and want to support local businesses. They have always been helpful even and never made me feel like I was asking a dumb question. The owner has been patient with me when I ask a lot of questions about the latest bike I got off craigslist. I take my bikes here for tune ups and recently had a repair done. I called on Monday, and was asked to bring the bike in for a proper quote. I didn't get around to bringing the bike in until Wed, but the owner recognized my request and said "Ah you're the guy that called on Monday." It was near closing time and he said I would get a call from them tomorrow. I called them at 5pm and asked for an update, they hadn't had a chance to look at my bike yet so he said he would check it out and call me back in 20 minutes with an estimate. 50 minutes later I received a friendly call with a great price to fix my bike's crank (threading issue), true up the wheel, and lube it up. I haven't picked it up yet, and am curious how long this will take.

After seeing the outside of this place I wasn't sure I believed the reviews. But this place is legit. Some of the best italian I have had and easily the best meal I had while in Myrtle Beach for three days. You need to make time to eat if you are passing through and especially if you are staying nearby.
