This deserves 4 minutes of your time. Fascinating!
 
This is actually pretty awesome.

My Nexus 5 is ordered and on the way!

The bad news: my Galaxy Nexus is at the bottom of a lake in Florida.

If you just wanted a new phone, why go through the trouble with "losing" it in the water?

Gotta love Idena Menzel. She's one of my favourite vocalists. She really makes this look easy. Love the relaxed feel to the whole thing.
 
It's incalculable how much better Jimmy Fallon is to Jay Leno. His History of Rap and The Roots with Classroom Instruments segments alone are worth it.

I used FB login so I'm safe. Still, I figured I'd refresh my FB pass just to be on the safe side.

Here's a great video on the basics of soldering. Well done and informative.

This guy is seriously impressive. The video is much more enjoyable if you happen to know a little bit here and there about +Disney. Still though, this is a fun watch. I enjoyed the second half more though, so stick with it.
 
"Let It Go", by ALL the Disney Divos

And one diva.

This literally had me laughing out loud. Wonderfully written. Here's a quick excerpt where the author explains a javascript console error message:

The first log entry says that the browser executed a downloaded file as JavaScript, even though the MIME type of the file was text/html. Here’s a life tip: when you’re confused about what something is, DON’T EXECUTE IT TO DISCOVER MORE CLUES. This is like observing that your next-door neighbor is a creepy, bedraggled man with weird eyes, and then you start falling asleep on his doorstep using a chloroform rag as a pillow, 
just to make sure that he’s not going to tie you to a radiator and force you to paint tiny figurines. Here’s how your life story ends: YOU ARE A PAINTER OF TINY FIGURINES.
 
Colorful rant on Javascript, with some fun details like the defensive semicolon (I hadn't heard about that one). Says the author: "That is the saddest programming concept I've ever heard, and I am fluent in C++."

I'm still reading it and there are some funny bits for sure, like for example the following

And poor IE6, voted “Least Likely to Succeed Because IE6 Is Not a Proper Christian Name,” manages to stumble through the world while surviving more assassination attempts than Fidel Castro.

With that being said, it really is written by a software engineer elitist. I'll just say one thing, if the web pages were written in a one of those rigid programming languages that require two hour compilation to produce "hello world", like C++, the web as we know it wouldn't exist and USENIX.org would probably be one of only 10 or so sites in existence.

Another brilliant +Kickstarter project. I'm not pledging on this one, but I'll probably be a customer when it comes to market.

The wait times for the servers are sometimes painful, particularly when they impose a dining limit of 2 hours. I stayed 2.5 hours, and was prepared to argue at length that it was their fault. No matter though, the food (when it arrived) was very good. Massive selection. Almost always cooked to the level on doneness that I preferred. Great flavours to be found here. Recommended for sure. The entire visit was an experience, and one that I will definitely have again.

Had the dungeoness crab here. In a word: stellar. Prepared perfectly, my friend and I were licking our fingers. Great oysters, wonderful margaritas.

Since this place was feature on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, I had to check it out. I just asked the server to bring something delightful from the menu. She brought the chicken marsala. Wonderful.

This camp is a little slice of heaven. The staff are fantastic! Very kind and caring. I was not disappointed with a single member of staff. The facilities are great too, all kinds of fun for summer and winter. I'll be there as often as I can.
