This is the most jarring mashup I've found from the Mixes and Mashups #4 on soundcloud.  I find the mix of music styles really jarring but yet I can't help but listen.  The sitar (at least I think it is a sitar) keeps reminding me of Knight Rider.  So weird...

Can anyone suggest a good .ca domain name registrar.  I have another domain I'd like to register and I'd like a good, preferably Canadian company to work with.  If they throw in DNS service as well that would be fantastic.

Thanks for the suggestions guys, I did end up going with hover and used the dansent.me coupon.  I plan on having my new domain point to a machine I'm running on cloudatcost.com.  Not sure if any of you have heard of them or not.

I didn't believe the tooltip text of this particular comic.  Running "man sudoers" proved it was right.  What a crazy manpage.

I start shaking uncontrollably when faced with anything related to Linux security.

I decided to try Google hangouts for a video chat this weekend between a second generation nexus 7 and an iPhone 4. The results were extremely disappointing! Audio was perfect but the video quality was the worst I've ever seen. Using facetime between the iPhone 4 to an iPhone 4s or an iPad using the same internet connection offered a far superior video experience. Am I alone in this? Anyone else had a different experience?

No need to regulate this industry.  Nope, the free market is definitely working and don't worry, this truly is a coincidence I'm sure of it.
 
Without any fanfare, Canada’s big three wireless carriers have hiked the base prices for new plans by $5 in most markets over the weekend. http://cbc.sh/2PuAYpd

Rogers, Telus and Bell Mobility now all charge $80 per month for new smartphone plans with a new contract, $5 more than those same plans cost when they were introduced last year. The prices for other smartphone plans with more data cost upwards of $145.

What do you think of the hike?

It does sound like collusion.

I thought I had it bad!  Good luck trying to pick out the best 1/3 of your photo.
