Excellent video for learning the basics of orbital docking. Very cool!

For those of you in the US, please take part in this survey.  The FCC is leaning toward upholding net neutrality, but the anti's are making a huge push in the next three weeks and having a large, ongoing stream of pro opinions is a great way to keep that at bay.
 
The Mozilla Advocacy site is taking part in a letter campaign to the FCC to put protections in place around #netnutrality . You can fill in your details to have them send a letter to your congress person before the vote on Feb 26th to help counterbalance the massive amounts of money that mega-monopolies like Comcast are spending to sway the vote.

I'm looking for recommendations for reliable, comfortable bluetooth headphones.  Preferably the padded, over-ear type.  I'm not an audiophile, either.

I bought an SB270, but its Bluetooth implementation is abyssmal so I threw it away (free to a good home if you want it).

So when you hear "Mozart's Requiem Reimagined", do you imagine a minor fourth sustained for over ten minutes?  Neither did I.  Be warned.  My head still hurts.  I would avoid anything composed by the "Sleeping Giant Collective" just to be safe.

The phone didn't really catch it, but the Proctor's marquee says "This page cannot be displayed" in 864pt Ariel. Go internet exploder!

GPL is a huge part of the Open Source world, but it's never really been tested in court.  That may soon change.

I'm speaking based on the many hours I've spent discussing this with free software lawyers.

Do you know #Buildbot?
It is a great continuous integration framework, and has its UI written in angularJS: http://nine.buildbot.net/#/

Buildbot has been a proud #GSOC participant for a few years now, and this year has a few interesting angularJS project ideas.

Early check-in is not an uncommon thing to request, yet here the evening before my reservation, first I'm told that the phone number in the email is the wrong number, and then told by the hotel that I will need to call the morning of the reservation (at which point I'll be on a plane), and even then it's a 50/50 chance. Service is what sets great hotels apart from just-ok hotels, and so far Marquis is ranking "just ok".

I found this place while serving on a jury, and was pleasantly surprised to see it's not your usual sandwich joint. The food is delicious, creative, and from fresh ingredients. The staff are friendly. And the prices aren't bad.

I've been here a few times. They are very professional, and value my time - I'm always in and out in just a few minutes. Their prices are far lower than I expected, they are clear about what needs to be done and what doesn't, and the work they do is solid.

When I checked in, this seemed like a basic cheap-room-with-a-bed. The room and furniture are dark, beaten up, old, and mismatched. The building's clearly not seen the love it deserves. There are a few roaches, but only small ones. The wifi works, but only barely. You'll need to go to one of the local coffeeshops to actually do anything, after you spend 20 minutes finding them on the hotel wifi. There's no free breakfast here. In the final analysis, even the relatively cheap price is too high for the really low quality.

I didn't expect a first-rate place, but for the exorbitant price, I expected something decent. Nope, roach motel. Ugly rooms, holes in the wall, cheap industrial construction, staff that didn't even know where the room was. This place is worth maybe $40/night. If you're paying more, you'll be very sorry. There's camping nearby - try that.

This is a busy multi-doctor office with long hours. They're all good vets, and if you have an emergency or need to be seen quickly, this is a good place to take your pet. However, as a long-term care or a chronic condition, I'd advise against. Their diagnostics must be read out to you by a doctor. They'd prefer that the doctor requesting the test do the reading, but most doctors aren't in very often. And when they are in, calling patients with results is not a very high priority. It can be very frustrating to have an expensive test performed to figure out why your pet is sick, then wait several days, while your pet suffers, to hear what the tests showed. The front desk seems always understaffed, and you can spend quite a while being ignored by staff. I overheard a few near-misses with confusion between patients, and had a difficult time myself making clear how my pet was to be treated. That said, I was pleased to see they had a collar with instructions on my pet when I dropped him off - simple, failsafe procedures are how you prevent mistakes. The lobby smells strongly of stressed-out animals, but the exam rooms were clean and the veterinary procedures I could see were carried out with appropriate techniques. Overall, everyone cares and wants to do right by your pet, but the place strikes me as just barely managing to hold it together.

A nice "local" bar with all sorts of interesting people coming and going. This is a good place to grab a pint (a good draft list!) and a bite, but don't expect to keep to yourself!
