To share our play music library across our family (wife and kids all in same household) i have to add my Google account to each of their phones. I don't like this, but it works. But how does my wife access our music library on her chromebook? My account is also on the chromebook, but she does not have access to the music nor to my account. Also, i do not feel uploading our entire library again to her account is a reasonable solution.

Any answers out there besides re-uploading to her account?

I've been thinking about doing this for a while. My main Google account holds all the goodies, including my longest standing email account ever. I would switch it to another Google account and continue using my current one as the "family" account but I'm lazy.

Equipment  - 
 
Holy Crap!  My 2 year old Frigidaire Keezer has gone out.  My last Keezer was made from a 10+ year old freezer I was given and lasted me another 7-8 years.  This one was new and is out in 2 years.  I think the compressor is gone, but I am no fridge repair man, so who knows (jumped teh thermostate, tested the capacitor, but that is the limit of my knowledge).  It was making some weird clunking noises and now the compressor clicks on, does do anything, then clicks off after ~15 secs.  

The freezer barely runs - it only has to keep ~45 degrees F, so it did not work very hard or very often.  Do these really suck that much?  Is there some issue with it being tripped on/off by the temp controller?

+Chris Polk pretty cool for frigidaire to response (assuming its legit). Have already replace with new freezer of same make/model. Hopefully not a mistake to go with the same model as the one that failed, but made it quick and easy to transfer the collar. Time will tell.

All-grain brewing  - 
 
I conducted an experiment I think the Brew Nerd community will enjoy (maybe more of an adventure - no proper controls included!).  I was reading abut these purified hop oils that have been becoming more available and I decided I would brew a "Better Living Thru Chemistry" IPA.  For this, I brewed 15 gallons of a standard pale ale (or mild IPA) targeting 40 IBUs with standard hop pellets (Perle and Centennial for bittering and Cascade for Aroma) and a nice clean American Ale Yeast (Wyeast 1056).  No drop hopping.

The entire 15 gallons was brewed and fermented in batch.  Then, the finished beer was split between 3 kegs of 5 gallons each.  To each keg I added 5 mls of Cascade Hop Oil from HopTech for Aroma (same amount of aroma oil for each keg).  

Keg #1 was left at 40 IBUs from hop pellets. 

Keg #2 received 10 mls of Iso Alpha Extract from HopTech, to give an additional 15 IBU taking the total to 55 IBU

Keg #3 received 20 mls of Iso Alpha Extract, to give an additional 30 IBU taking the total to 70 IBU

So, in theory, I ended up with 3 kegs spanning the range of IPA from 40 IBU to 70 IBU.

For the most part, this worked out great.  The 3 kegs have distinctly different bittering profiles.  I really like all 3 and I find I like the range depending on my mood.  However, I do believe the bittering from the purified oils to be harsher than what I normally experience.  This may simply be my imagination or it may be the character of the particular hop oils purified.  Also, the 5 mls of Cascade Hop Oil was insufficient for Aroma - I could add more, but I have not done so.

So, this was a fun adventure and I am enjoying the beer.  I also think these purified oils are interesting to play with and handy in case the bittering profile we were targeting was missed.  On a side note, I tried adding the oils to a Bud Lite - it ended up as a bitter Bud Lite, but still a Bud Lite.

+Kim Sparrow could be what you are talking about. That was one reason i used "normal" hops in boil for at least 50 percent of total ibu.

Fermentation  - 
 
I have never seen such a dramatic off-gassing before. My fermentation has neared completion so i added my dry hops. Within a minute or two it started off-gassing like is shown in the video. Anyone else ever seen such a show?

▶ Acer Devices  - 
 
Always nervous when buying tech for my wife - she does not necessarily appreciate those things I find so cool.  I finally settled on the Acer C720P #chromebook   - paying extra for the touch screen.  I received notification it arrived today and I told my wife to "open the box, plug it in and log on with Google ID".  She did so with no problems and no help whatsoever from me. Its not like she is some technophobe, I just know how much time I would have had to spend setting up a windows machine for her.

Next, when I arrived home, she said - "Have you seen it?  Its TERRIFIC!  I love it!"  She especially loves the touch screen.  I was a little worried she would not make use of it and the touch screen would be more of a novelty.  Glad to see she is using it - and even better - she thinks its awesome!  If you are still debating - go for the touchscreen!

This probably shouldn't bother me as much as it does. Why don't devices (devices to purchase eg chrombooks, chromecast and tablets) show up in the play store app on my mobile devices? I have to browse to the play store in chrome rather than simply use the play store app. Why would it be different? I can not find any discussion on this online not in google help. Is it just me?

Wondered the same myself.. I think there should be devices in the play store app as well .. And not sure about the kids buying devices dilemma there as its password protected for purchases unless that option is manually changed, and even then you need the correct info..

Nice concise description of activists real motivation for labelling of GMOs and why it would be mis-leading to do so - "WARNING: This food is safe". These two sentences sum up the core of the push for labeling and why its important to stop it:

" Instead, it would splash a warning label on the front of food packages to suggest consumers have something to fear, when the real intent is to deter genetic engineering in agriculture by making the use of GMOs more complicated and expensive. Confusing consumers is a strategy toward that goal."

Good Article...  I love the fact that the financial supporters of the "Anti GMO Movement" accuse nasty Monsanto of being motivated by profit, while ignoring there own greed.

Disappointed with our first trip to Fortnight. The two beers we tried had major flaws. A medicine type off flavor of phenol in both. Also serves beer in plastic cups. Hopefully these are all issues that will soon be corrected. The decor was nice and it has potential to be a nice place to enjoy some local craft beer. I plan to give them another shot in a couple of months. I hope they turn it around. Would love to see a great brewery here in Cary.

Fried chicken is excellent. Would like the waffles a little crisper, but that may be a personal preference
