Today in "what decade is this anyway": the Unity Web Player. Too bad, the game concept sounds entertaining.

Glorious typecasting.  The one with the stampede was the best.

A couple folks in my social circles have shown support for Bundy's position in Nevada.  There's a great objective story in the Atlantic that describes the reality (and hypocrisy) of Bundy's position...

(Note - this the same Bundy who said, quote "I abide by all of Nevada state laws. But I don’t recognize the United States government as even existing." )
The Nevada rancher isn't just resisting the Bureau of Land Management—he's also fighting against his state's unusual constitutional history.

States are not people. They don't have the right to secede because they don't have the right to remove the protection of the federal government from their citizens. Even a local majority (say, Whites in Mississippi in the 1960s) does not have the right to remove the protection of the federal government from a local minority.

This will come as a surprise to no one, least of all the people FORCED to have these apps on their phones...   Samsung!  Let my S4 go!
If you used a Samsung app recently it was possibly a mis-click, according to a Strategy Analytics survey of 250-plus Galaxy S3 and S4 users. While

I beg to differ. Found at least 2 methods, one with an automated utility right along with a slew of modified stock and AOSP ROMs. Even found official nightlies for the ATT S4 of my ROM of choice (Omni). Email me if you're interested and I can talk over some of the advantages and disadvantages, though I'll be a bit busy over the next week...

Weekend summary:
+ A LOT of time on guitar.  Played in the Mosaic common house with +Zach B-S and others on Friday, played at Mockingbird Music and with neighbors on Saturday, and practiced my scales today.  Ow my fingers.
+ Helped +Mariama Congo hang pictures and prep the common house for next weekend
+ Had a DELICIOUS breakfast out (What is it about diner breakfasts?  Mmmm) on Saturday, and another nummy breakfast this morning.
+ Took tons of pictures of a local landmark - they'll be published soon.
+ Finished postprocessing about 100 scanned images for a slideshow for next weekend.
+ Took a NAP!
+ Had dinner with +Martha Shevett and some Deaf friends.  Yay lots of signing, lots of good conversation, and just plain good company.

All in all, not too bad.  I'm having weekend-drop now, feeling sorta meh in the quiet house, but some snacks, a little TV and maybe some geeking will help.

Seriously?  Does anyone but me see how fucked up this is?  What the hell is the reasoning behind this bullshit?

       The full documentation for mktemp is maintained as a Texinfo manual.  If the info and mktemp programs are properly installed at your site, the command

       should give you access to the complete manual.
