Seems like I see a lot like this.
 
Red Hat Ditches MySQL, Switches To MariaDB

"Red Hat will switch the default database in its enterprise distribution, RHEL, from MySQL to MariaDB, when version 7 is released. MySQL's first employee in Australia, Arjen Lentz, said Fedora and OpenSuSE were community driven, whereas RHEL's switch to MariaDB was a corporate decision with far-reaching implications. 'I presume there is not much love lost between Red Hat and Oracle (particularly since the "Oracle Linux" stuff started) but I'm pretty sure this move won't make Oracle any happier,' said Lentz, who now runs his own consultancy, Open Query, from Queensland. 'Thus it's a serious move in political terms.' He said that in practical terms, MariaDB should now get much more of a public footprint with people (people knowing about MariaDB and it being a/the replacement for MySQL), and direct acceptance both by individual users and corporates."

I can deal with the little hit of ads they show. And they let you skip them. I deal with a lot of free services though so I am very used to it.

Earlier this Spring, we were going out on a bit of a family adventure and wanted to eat someplace good and simple on our way North out of town. Hey, I know, a diner!! Looked up diners and found this place. From then on, it was all downhill. This was a Saturday morning, late, so we had to wait for a table, which was no big deal. We ordered and waited. As we waited, we watched most of the room get their food and leave. Some even came in after us! We asked our waitress, Savannah, about it, and she went to bat for us. Unfortunately, even though she argued our case, we finally talked to the manager, Ashley. This was after 45 minutes, BTW. Ashley, opened with excuses about being busy, blah blah blah. I told her we didn't want excuses, we wanted our food. The only good thing she did to handle the situation was to comp our entire order. Of course she couldn't come and tell us she took that action, we only found out when another staff member was taking our money on the way out. Suffice to say, unless our memories fail us, we will never be back. Savannah, if you read this, you're great. Get yourself a job at a nicer place and enjoy the tips.

My wife and I found ourselves without the kids for an evening recently and decided to stop in to Marlene's on a Friday night. We were asked whether we had reservations (no, we didn't), but were seated immediately anyway. Neither of us was very hungry, so we decided to order only "small plates". We ordered the avocado hummus, chevre portabellas, duck poutine, and the cheese board. The poutine was outstanding. It was upscale comfort food at it's best! Another hit was the portabellas. The chevre was fantastic! If we're ranking, then I guess the cheese board is in third place. Everything on it was very tasty, but it just seemed that the "small" was taken to an extreme with this. We're not sure if we'd order this again. Lastly, was the hummus. There wasn't anything special for us about this. It is just hummus, so I guess we should have known. I can't see us ordering this again in the future. One last "miss", for people like me that don't want to explore the wines. Beer choices were Stella Artois, Blue Moon, and a couple of horrible American lagers (I've blocked them out, but no doubt they were Bud and Bud Light or similar). So, no, no really good choices for beer. I really hope they read this and strike a deal with someplace like Confluence to get some tasty been options available. The decoration of the place was this rustic modern industrial look that is popular now. So, it was nice and pleasant to be in. The location is also very convenient. All in all, it was a great experience and we will be taking visitors here, as well as coming back ourselves, even with the kids!

Preliminary review: I went in today with an idea in mind and to look. I ended up talking with Jim for a long time. Jim was great. He explained anything from basic questions, to various options available. He helped frame what actual needs are based on my goals. He got me to ride a few different types (aluminum, carbon, 10 gears, 11 gears, etc) just to get the feel for them. His style is informative and no pressure. It seems that everybody there is like that. It was appreciated since I now have some more to think about. When I'm ready, Kyle's will be my first look based upon this sort of fantastic experience.

My wife and I had an impromptu date night, and we wanted some place we hadn't been before. Luckily, we remember HoQ. It was a Friday night at 7pm. We had made a reservation, but there was no need it was not even half full on this evening. We started with the Cod beignets and chickpea/carrot salad to start. Both were very tasty. I ended up having more of the chickpeas and carrots, in the kabob later. We also had the New York strip. Both were excellent. The steak was just a shade under the medium temperature that we asked for in the thickest part, but since we were taking 1/2 of it home, we just ate from the thinner ends. The lamb kabobs were tasty, although a little off putting when you first see them. I mean they looked like something a bear might leave in the woods, if you know what I mean! Another small quibble, was with the chickpea/carrot salad. The carrots were julienned, and hard to eat. You can't poke them with a fork, and were hard to scoop up. I'd suggest going with a different cut, perhaps sliced and quartered? So, yeah, I've given it 5 stars and won't change due to these quibbles. It was super relaxed, very tasty, and a bit expensive for us (All the food mentioned, plus a beer and a mixed drink was $115). We like the concept of "eating local", and places like this help us do exactly that. We will certainly be back as the menu changes with the seasons. We may even checkout the Mother's Day brunch with the kids.

Myself and three co-workers stopped in for lunch on a Friday at NOON. Surprisingly, it was not busy and we were seated immediately. We started with the angry donuts. They were very tasty, but I wouldn't call them angry(spicy), just flavored in a great way. I ended up with the kale caesar salad and curried chicken sandwich. Both were very good. I would have loved to see some parmesan flakes on the salad and perhaps some bigger, more rusting croutons. The curried chicken sandwich came on overly toasted bread making it mildly painful every bite. None of this will stop me from going back and exploring the other offerings. Especially since the lunch is reasonably priced for such fantastic food!

I stopped in yesterday, looking for a fork for my current bike. I ended up speaking with Joe Newendorp. I want to call him out for being so awesome! We struck out finding a fork, but I was able to talk with Joe about bikes, and my current goal. He was super knowledgeable and great to talk with. I didn't end up getting a bike but I definitely have a new choice that is high on my list. I won't hesitate to come back and buy it from Joe and Bike World, once I'm ready.
