Hey, we're giving away some couches.  Want 'em?
We are replacing our couches, and have two available for pickup for free, right now. These couches show wear and tear, the microfiber one has been stitched up but is extremely comfortable. The frames

So Gin and I took a look at the microfiber set. While it's a nice set we have to pass as combined its too big for our space right now. Thanks!

For those who want an easy way into playing around with smart quadcopter drones - the AR Drone 2.0 is for sale on Woot for an awesome $179.  All you need is a smartphone.

(There are inexpensive hacks that let this thing be used from a standard handheld controller.  It's a great platform and a lot of fun).
Perfect for the shoulder of a 21st Century Pirate! Only not really, that would be unsafe.

My 'worst' day so far mileage wise.  Long drive into Boston with +Mariama Congo to hang out with some friends at Castle Island, then back home, a nap, then out to visit Mom.  Probably the first time I miss not having a fast charger, since the naptime wasn't enough to refill the battery :(  2.5 hours of driving and I used a grand total of 1.32 gallons of gas.  Also, nuts to the park for not having EV hookups there.  Hmph.   #volt   #ev

We had an electrician install the 240v setup which is easy, 25 foot cable for my volt, could charge a tesla just as well

+Mariama Congo and I went to the Westover Air Show today (also known as the Great New England Airshow).  First time I've been to a show in 30 years, and first time for her ever.  It was boggling how big the show was (they were expecting, and probably got, 350,000 people), with the expected crowd and parking control problems.  Hot, tons of walking, but got to see beautiful planes, amazing feats of flying, and close up exposure to machines you rarely get to see and touch.  We'll be back next year for sure!   #westover

I love that pic. The P-51 Mustang: the ultimate prop-driven aircraft.

I was only nitpicking the nitpicking by nitpicking because I like the meta irony.  Mainly I wanted to contribute what the relative battery sizes are.

Nothing like a new car to spur you to do that spring cleaning in the car port.  Mostly it was just cluttered, but now everything fits comfortably!
