Bug Reports  - 
 
I created a simple diagram with two boxes with text in them and a line connecting them. Exported as SVG. Tried to upload to wikimedia and got this error:

Error creating thumbnail: convert: Non-conforming drawing primitive definition `text-align'.

Here's the diagram.

There's a new edition of Hello, Android in the works. It's been rewritten to cover Android Studio and Android 5. I'm looking for Android community members to read it and supply a praise quote for the front of the book. Email me if you're interested.

Silly Amazon... I searched for "widescreen tv cabinet" and it said:

   Search instead for “wide screen tv cabinet”

Ok, so I searched for that instead. Now it says:

   Did you mean: “widescreen tv cabinet”

Yes, yes I did.

I just pre-ordered a Karma hotspot because I'm frustrated with Time Warner. Use this code to get $10 off (also saves me $10): https://yourkarma.com/invite/ed69486697
Karma Go is a tiny box that gives you WiFi everywhere you go. No monthly fees and data never expires. Use my code for $10 off yours: https://yourkarma.com/invite/ed69486697

Interesting. I tether through my phone when I travel, but this looks much more convenient. I may pick one up, thanks for the discount!
