These are so awesome. +Andrew Bell kindly sent us a few for Building 44, and we love them. They're printed on some nice high-quality paper and look great.

I won't lie. I kept a set of four for myself, before distributing the rest to the relevant team leads. ;) They're that cool.
 
Workers! Special notice from the Android Foundry Progress Administration: New prints available now!

+Dan Morrill Do you know what's going on to Google IO websites? some of them are completely gone for some reason, even though they can still help many developers, yet for some reason Google IO 2008 is still alive...
Also, how come there isn't any Google IO app that collects all of the events and lets us watch and learn through it?

Hat tip to my friend +Steve Zingelewicz who pointed me at a sale over at Amazon for the digital version of Lego Lord of the Rings. $9 for this game, and $6 for the older LotR: War in the North. (That game gets meh reviews, but hey -- $6, and it has co-op.)

If you buy these you get a code in the email receipt to activate it in Steam.

Edit: Batman: Arkham City is in there too for $9. Scribblenauts, Sims 3, etc. It's a rather good sale!  Check it out: http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html/ref=amb_link_378977722_2?ie=UTF8&docId=1000716161&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=hero-quick-promo&pf_rd_r=1CJ6GXMNM94TV9S69GM2&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_p=1578053702&pf_rd_i=B00A2XA3GG

It's fairly warm here, and poor old Sammy's sleeping it off. He didn't even come down for breakfast this morning.

I went to check on him and clearly disturbed his sleep. :)

+Xochitl Sandoval (I have never been as glad for the autotyping g+ has of names then here ;D ) you are welcome! It is a trick I learned somewhere to use on humans, under mattresses for babies and straight on the skin for kids and adults that moves around on their own. The cans keeps the cold for quite some time, and it is easy to get hold of. I hope your cats "gets" how it work and not just give you the glare.

#OneGuyOneOutfit

Retired gym teacher Dale Irby posed for his first yearbook photo back in 1973 at Prestonwood Elementary school. The next year, completely by accident, Irby wore the exact same outfit. At first he was horrified to discover the faux pas, but then his wife made a dare: do it again the next year. And before you knew it a 40-year tradition was born; from 1973 to 2013 the teacher wore an identical sweater vest and collared shirt for every single yearbook portrait.

Mentioning the WAT video last night reminded me of this page, which if I recall +Jean-Baptiste Quéru first revealed to me.

It's not an entertaining read, per se. But it's fascinating in the same way that reading an analysis of any catastrophe of human technology is fascinating.

Shit. This guy just convinced me. I'm a huge php advocate but he's right! It's a messed up broken language.

So, +Aimee Morgan is doing this +Hackbright Academy thing, and today quoted this at me:

"Do not confuse the primitive Boolean values true and false with the true and false values of the Boolean object.

Any object whose value is not undefined or null, including a Boolean object whose value is false, evaluates to true when passed to a conditional statement. "

She then added this color commentary:
"*cry*
Javascript!
hate!!!"

I said, of course, "There's a video you should watch", intending to point her at a certain video that is required reading for all developers.

She said, "What's the name of the video?"
Me: "WAT"
Her: "They showed us that."

Well played, +Hackbright Academy. That's good schoolin'.

I am pretty amused that this "Excessive Heat Warning" for the San Francisco area actually excludes San Francisco itself. #BecauseFog  
No such luck for the rest of us, though.

Thing is: we don't have air conditioners. No reason to, 362 days of the year. So 98 here can be more dangerous to (say) the elderly than 118 in Phoenix.

Twisp & Catsby would be a superlative name for a steakhouse.

Magnificent. And now I'm hungry.
 
Well, this is the first article that made me genuinely laugh out loud in quite some time. A long line of blog posts lead me here (including skepchick.org , which is actually pretty neat), but this is probably the best possible result of all worlds.
