Yeeee-aah!

(I had nothing to do with this, but I'm so glad to finally have an open-source protobuf-based RPC stack. Probably some issues in v1, but it'll be great.)
 
Google is open sourcing gRPC, a new library focused on efficiency and innovation in data transport across all platforms.

Turns out the people in Starbucks were not discussing early-2000's punk bands, I'm just in Olympia.

Once a day for 666 days, the Council revealed a heavy metal album cover with a skull on it (just one skull, multiple skulls on one cover are disqualified), and reviewed both the skull and the album.
KAT, 666 (1986, Polmark). The skull: Here it is, a skull so perfectly apt that no other could possibly end our epic investigation into the life and times of the Big Dumb Skull, although as you shall learn, this was perhaps fated from long ago. This album was originally released in 1986 with a ...

Open-source version of Google's internal build system! v. exciting.

Maybe not be appropriate for small projects, but it does a great job dealing with the exabytes[1] of code we deal with internally.

I'd also be interested to see how well it works for cross compilation and multi-architecture setups.

There are these two young Seattlites walking along, and they happen to meet a older Californian walking the other way, who nods at them and says "Morning, boys. How about this rain?" And the two Seattlites walk on for a bit, and then eventually one of them looks over at the other and goes, "What the hell is rain?"

Rock-mossing day! Got a bunch of moss from a neighbor's tree we cut down. Let's see if it sticks to the new retaining wall.

Great experience with the service staff. Quick, helpful, friendly, and VW fans themselves. They dropped me off at work and offered to pick me up again in the evening.
