How embarrassing. I'm here at +Sasquan​, and forgot all my books at home, so had to pick some up from the dealers. Handed +Steven Gould​ a book he had already signed. He was most gracious and personalized it for me, and even tolerated my geeking out over his Pebble watch.

They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I guess we'll see if they can imitate the quality as well as they imitate the packaging.

Took the youngest to the range for the first time Saturday. I was amused that she'd picked up quite a few of the basic gun safety rules, including trigger discipline, from +MythBusters​.

Oh, look. Project fi requires Flash.

Also, +Google, why doesn't Project fi have a Google+ page?

Isn't that like pulling Hogan's Heroes because of the swastikas?
The 1980s series set in rural Georgia caught up in Confederate flag controversy.

So, just on a whim, I read the opinion on State v. E.J.J., which seemed a fairly straightforward "obstruction of justice" case, which the State Supreme Court overturned because telling the police you disagree with their actions is protected by the First Amendment, even if you use naughty words and refuse to go somewhere the police can't hear you.

Then I got to the concurring opinion by Justice González. Hot damn! Freedom, suckers! Liberty! This guy has got words for those that would tell people not to criticize the police to their face, especially brown people. I'm pretty sure I voted for him last time, but Justice González definitely has my vote next time around.

Weird thing going on. Has anyone else noticed that when you start a shared +YouTube video in your main +Google+ desktop feed, you often get an un-skippable minutes-long ad?

Or is it just me?

Fortunately, most weirdnesses in the Googleverse clear up in a day or two. I'm just wallowing in a first-world need for instant gratification.

Well, this tool just saved my life. When repartitioning USB drives with diskpart, double-check that you've selected the correct drive before running "clean". Just sayin'...

My top result is not particularly surprising. What's surprising is my #2 result. At 72% agreement, my second choice after Rand Paul is Bernie Sanders. That's certainly interesting.
I just took the 2016 Presidential election quiz and found that I side the most with Republican candidate Rand Paul. Who do you side with?

It's this part right here that disgusts me:

"Metro Transit spokesman Jeff Switzer confirmed Wednesday that Kirkpatrick was cleared of any wrongdoing stemming from the accusation, but said the incident prompted the agency to send a bulletin to all drivers clarifying they were not to wear personal body cameras while working."

So, the driver was exonerated only because he went beyond his job description to protect himself, and the response of the employer is to clarify in policy that employees aren't allowed to do that.

Yes, really. I can probably dig up the Policy Bulletin that they sent out.

And, yes, it's vile. Basically, "The Police Division within the Transit Department is more important than the drivers."

Rather than repeat what everyone else is saying, let's just consider this my global response to today's ruling.

This warning strikes me as just a teensy bit premature.

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.
