It's hard to believe an internet company is 20 years old already.

Pretty awesome. I was going to order cardboard last Christmas, but got analysis paralysis deciding which pair to get. Maybe I'll get these, but a strap would be nice.
The iconic View-Master toy from the early 1900s is getting a massive overhaul with the help of Google and virtual reality technology.

HT to +Mike Hostetler for the find.
C is an M1 Garand standard issue rifle, old but reliable. C++ is a set of nunchuks, powerful and impressive when wielded but takes many years of pain to master and often you probably wish you were using something else. Perl is a molotov cocktail,... | Bjorn Tipling | Software Engineer at @floobits

Yep. I was planning on giving a lightening talk at some point. It's fairly straightforward. Start up a hub, start nodes, register the nodes with the hub, point protractor at the hub.

I need to hook mine up and register it to get the credit.  I have used it a few times, but my ancient 1st gen Roku still has more features, and it also supports screencasting from my android devices.

Using a disassembled snow speeder to teach my daughter about non-standard gears and electrical circuits.

The motor spins a gear that has an asymmetrical piece molded to the side that pushes down on a metal spring on an interval to make the lights flash.

When we have guests from out of town and they want steak, this is the restaurant I take them too. Locals don't usually order steak at restaurants because you can make something at home that's just as good. The Drover might be the exception because their Whiskey marinated ribeye has flavor that you just can't easily replicate.

Very expensive, but well worth trying at least once. Always get the ribeye. The sides are all excellent, but the potatoes au gratin were my favorite of the things we tried.

One of the best places in Omaha and probably the place I eat most often. It's great because it's menu appeals to everyone, including the critical foodie. Most of the menu is good, but the best rule to live by is "Always get the special".
