Tazo changed their lid. Guess I'm not the only one that's made a huge mess when the lid popped open when I was shaking it. :-)

This little baby Swallow decided to fly into our house tonight! We shut the inside doors and turned off the inside lights and then opened the outside door and turned the porch light on. I shooed it out the door as my wife ran around screaming. She ran in front of the path I was chasing it out, and thought it was chasing her. :-) It perched on the light out side once he flew out. The light is really yellow because it's one of those lights that don't attract bugs. HDR shot from my Nexus 6 brightened up a little bit in Snapseed.

Oops! That might have been one of my most expensive mistakes. I bought a UV flashlight and filtering glasses to hunt for rocks and scorpions. Initial investment was only $20. After using it in the house on the carpet.... we might have to move. Maybe we can get away with just a few thousand for new floors.

Sounds like that one episode of Monk, when UV was used in his hotel room. 

Oh, the humanity!

Yes, the button is still going on. Some new lows recently, currently 11s for a few folks. Here's a great video on it that's informative, yet concise and entertaining. If you want to know what it is, watch this.

This would be amazing! I hope they have one near me. Eventually (soon) you'll be able to do this anywhere with tech like Microsoft Hololens. Larping + laser tag + video game vr = The Void

uTorrent ads didn't bother me before, but lately they've actually been auto playing loud video ads with no way to turn the volume down, and no way to stop them. This prompted me to find a new torrent client, but it turns out that you can actually remove all the ad "features" from uTorrent (or BitTorrent, since they are basically the same thing but with a different color theme).
How to Remove Sponsored Ads from uTorrent. uTorrent has recently introduced sponsored ads from version 3 of its torrent applications. What many people don't realize is that these ads are optional and can be disabled in the preferences, so...

There aren't ads anymore. It was relatively straight forward. I'll keep Vuze in mind if it comes back or bothers me in some other way.

The Google Fi app came out in the store Play store today. Without an invite, you can't do much though. There is a phone number listed for customer care. I called the number, 1-844-talk-2-fi, and talked to a Google Fi representative. He said they sent out the first 100 invites today. He also said they aren't sending out SIM cards yet and the only way to get Google Fi is to order a new Nexus 6 from Google Fi with the SIM card included. He said they will send SIM cards separately at some point, but he didn't know when. Pretty lame if it's true. Not only is it limited to one phone, in one country, but it's not even available to people that already own that one phone? Even people like me that bought it unlocked and don't have a contract? Lol, I guess Google is really taking this slow.

+Ethan Taylor​ Correct, however it does need a reboot when switching between them.
Honestly though I think in the hopefully not too distant future we won't have to wiry about GSM and CDMA and have universally compatible LTE only phones(which is technically based on GSM).

I've noticed an increase in people lately that say they aren't religious, but are spiritual. That usually translates to them still believing in the divine in some way, but not wanting to be associated with churches or the stereotypical church goer. This is, of course, just an anecdotal observation of mine and not necessarily an actual growing trend. While I can understand wanting to distance oneself from dogmatic churches or the worst of their attendees, it's intellectually dishonest to say you aren't religious. This is especially true if you have a "relationship" with Jesus Christ. He is a divine being. If you believe in him, living your live according to his wishes, you are religious. From what I've seen, the type of person that describes themselves this way typically does it to get away from the worst parts of religion, which is a good thing, but let's call a spade a spade. If being called religious bothers you, it might be a good idea to find out why.

+Eric Jones The truths of this world are not just infinite, but uncountably many. All rule sets are by definition finite. So it isn't a shortcoming of any particular religion (or religion in general) that no religion has the complete truth; it's a fundamental constraint. I didn't make that rule, and God can't break it; it's Goedel's Theorem.

Introduction
I'm just like this guy, you know? I'm a geek/nerd. I like technology, computers, smart phones, and video games. I'm happily married to a wonderful, beautiful woman. I have two kids, my daughter is nine, and my son is seven. I love spending time with my family; they are my everything.

I'm currently spreading my time between family, work, school (working on my BS CS software emphasis), video games, and technology/gadgets. If you see me looking down, I'm probably fossil hunting. You can expect me to post things about those topics. I personally use Chrome OS, Android, and Windows, but I also work with Linux and Unix. You can expect me to talk about those things as well.

I'm hopelessly optimistic about the future and the positive affect that technology will have on our lives. I'm also hopelessly unable to distinguish the difference between affect and effect, and when you should use one or the other. This may affect some people more than others.
