Why rewrite a perfectly good post?
 
Taxes filed. Once again I have succeeded in not making an interest-free loan to the federal government. Succeeded greatly, in fact. Fortunately, not so greatly as to have the IRS raise its eyebrows at me and demand more of my money for not being charitable enough to the federal government.

+Dave Miller Hm.  How might I best set up some payroll deduction that accomplishes more than overpaying my taxes...that will take some research.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure the battery isn't supposed to bubble up like that.

I'm sure it's fine. Just force the cover back down on it.

Actually just got her a new Moto G with a pink back. I'm pretty sure I'd never be forgiven if I tried to pry it away from her. I'm using my old Nexus 4 until the exchange unit arrives, hopefully Monday.

Rumor has it that 5.1 enables hardware encryption on the Nexus 6!

I blame the Microsoft Band for convincing me I might be willing to wear a watch again. This thing has fitness tracking, 7-day battery life, and is water resistant. It checks all the boxes.

The day has come.

The first computer I ever programed was an in-store TRS-80 Model 2, after learning BASIC from a library book. I don't know how many ???-in-1 electronics kits I owned, and for so many years they were my go-to store for random switches, resistors, and project cases. And, of course, free batteries. I last set foot in a Radio Shack years ago, days before Christmas, hoping against hope that they might have a Samsung charging cable I needed. They didn't.

Good-bye, Radio Shack. I'm sorry we grew apart, but I guess that's how these things go.
And there it is; the death knell we all knew would ring out eventually. RadioShack has officially filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Once a home base to the..

Man, it frustrates me when a website, +Red Robin Gourmet Burgers​​ in this instance, won't honor a request to display the desktop site. Since their mobile site apparently lacks the ability to query gift card balances, I had to remote into my desktop machine in order to use that functionality.

All part of "the interwebs sure have gotten buried in crap lately".  E.g., search for something, you get 1,000 pages claiming "Best prices on [whatever you just searched]".  Sites that refuse to give non-mobile view, sites that are wildly broken, etc., etc., etc.  Then there is all the work going on to make sure you have no privacy.

Hey, +Motorola Mobility​! Why the hell do you send me this email twice a day, when you have the tracking number, and so should know perfectly well that I shipped the phone back the same day I received the replacement?

This is quite possibly the most entertaining crowdfunding promotional video I've ever seen.
 
My huge Alan Tudyk nerdiness (and Fillion) is goading me to find money for this....

If nothing else, the man was a broad cultural icon, with deep roots in our collective consciousness. He had a long and fascinating journey, and he will be missed.

I appear to be the only person on the planet that looked at the original picture of #TheDress, and saw blue and gold.
Not since Monica Lewinsky was a White House intern has one blue dress been the source of so much consternation. (And yes, it’s blue.) The fact that a single image could polarize the entire Internet into two aggressive camps is, let’s face it, just another Thursday. But for the past half-day, people across social media…

So, ever since I heard about Google Opinion Rewards from +Tyler Paul​, I've been saving my credit for XCOM (Originally Enemy Unknown, now Enemy Within). Today I discover it's on sale for half price. Now I have almost six bucks worth of credit to splurge with. Woo! I'm rich!

Also jumped on the Play holiday sales as well, really a great value to what is already considered free. Now if only to find the time and battery to take advantage of it.

Room was adequate, typical for a budget motel. Internet was solid, but slow. My biggest complaint was that there was a single ice machine for the entire massive complex. Overall, I'd say it was ok, but not worth the price premium over other budget motels.
