Simple trick to add auto delete feature to Gmail labels so old emails get purged automatically after a certain time.

The #Chrome  #DevTools I want has a visual DOM diff in it :-)

Why are these 2 dom elements styled differently?  They seem to have the same calculated values, but something's up.

There should be a #GoogleGlass rental program. Going to Japan for a month? Rent Google Glass. Taking an intense 2 week hobby class? Rent Glass. Hitting 50 food trucks in 50 states in 50 days? #RentGlass

BTW, I'm willing to beta test that rental program :-)

#Android #FeatureRequest 

Fine grained app permissions.  Let me deny a certain permission, then when the app needs a permission I denied, prompt me to grant the permission with options for:
"Yes, Always", "Yes, Just Once", "No, Always", "No, Just Once"

I currently have 33 apps on my phone that I've refused to update because I don't want to grant things like:
* Facebook ~ Read my text messages, (Dis)/Connect WiFi
* Groupon ~ Take pictures
* Path ~ Bluetooth Settings
* AnyDo Cal ~ Disable your lock screen?!
* Google Keep ~ GPS (I don't use Keep that way)

I get what it's for, but if that's a feature I'm willing to forgo, then I should have the option of not allowing it.  Then when I do try to take a picture with the Groupon app, have it prompt me "Hey, we need this permission".

Even better, with Android, everything is a Action of sorts.  I'd like, when prompted, to just give permission to that app for that specific action.

This is crazy town. #Chrome .htm files => #Skype CPU spike

TL;DW: If your Skype CPU usage is spiking, check your file associations. If you have .htm files (not .html) associated with Chrome, change it to IE or some other browser.

Good news, is this seems to be a Windows specific problem. Not that Skype on Linux is all that (quite a few versions behind for example), but it does work.

So far, so cheap to invest in a new Mac; especially when Linux is awesome for other things.

Practice makes permanence. BTW, both of those quotes could apply to porn.

I hate css. I'm guessing this is super simple and I'm just a moron.

My problem ended up being that my actual code was using a float:left with text-align: right.

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".
