Oooh! I need to give this a try.
 
Magic performed using the GIMP G'MIC Inpaint filter to remove sensor dust.
It may take a while to run, but it's so much quicker than cloning/healing each bit of dust manually.

WANT! This would be an awesome senior IT project and not that expensive to boot! Draws on lots of various skills from both the hands-on tech field to IT.
This simple Raspberry Pi-Powered Linux laptop uses off-the-shelf parts, can be hooked up to a TV or monitor, and it fits in your pocket.

WHOHOO! Available in Canada too! Just be aware, the link provided here will say "Not available in your country". Just go to your Google Play Movie URL/app and look for it there.

Me? I got mine for "free". Gotta use up some of those credits I get from Google Rewards. :D

Hey +Joseph Kurachi Luk - I spotted one of these on Kingsway in Vancouver the other day! Looks like they're old enough to be imported into Vancouver.

Ooooh! WANT! Although my son would want to build it, and then promptly take it apart.

I think I prefer the Lego Creator F40. I like Lego Technic but this just doesn't end up looking enough like a Porsche to me.

Awe man! I feel sorry for the sysop who has to use this disk to attempt a restore. The only thing good about this is is that disk itself can be easily found.

+1 if you know why the data is FUBAR'd!
 
Whoops! +Jon "maddog" Hall says this actually happened at Bell Laboratories, although with a data disk, not a system restore disk. I believe it!

It's because it's stored vertically right?  Everyone knows you gotta store floppy disks horizontally to keep the bits from falling out.

Math in real life FTW!
 
The Pixar In A Box lessons start with a technical problem that animators face and work into the math from there.
A collaboration between Pixar and Khan Academy hopes to show students what math looks like at work in successful animated films.

Local Asian mall in Burnaby BC. You can find stuff here you won't find in a mainstream mall. Lots of little restaurants and shops too.

The rooms were large and spacious. Two queen beds and a pull-out couch. Lots of desk and drawer space. Two free bottles of water every day. Has a fridge and safe in the room too. The flat panel TV has HDMI input and digital cable signal. Free continental breakfast and WiFi available too. My only complaints are that the room smelled a bit musty from the AC unit, and the bathtub faucet was a little loose from usage.

Local Starbucks hangout for the Mount Pleasant neighborhood. It's a small Starbucks in terms of seating area but it adds to its cozy atmosphere.

Well, you definitely don't come here for the decor or service. The food makes up for it though! It's been here for years and I remember coming here as a kid. Remember, Chinese food is always best when shared with others. The more people, the more variety you can get.

It's the PNE! Playland is always fun. Plenty of rides for the little ones and classic rides like the old wooden roller coaster for the big ones. The Star Trek exhibit is neat for trekkies, but photos not allowed in the exhibit. Lots of costumes, models and facts about Star Trek. Even have a timeline to put all the different series in sequence. Can have a long line to get in, so get there early. At least they show Star Trek movie while waiting.
