All of my Android issues just got a fixit-0915 label. Sept 15th Marshmallow launch confirmed. 



Maybe. Actually probably not.

Lead feather?  

As a lark someone should stage a phony feather drop in earth atmosphere.

The bad news is: this permission is disabled by default. Even worse, this permission cannot be requested by programmatically prompting a request dialog to the user, but must be explicitly enabled by navigating to the settings screen, selecting the app and triggering the switch; a bit like when you need to manage the Device Administrators (Android Wear, Device Manager, PushBullet, ..).

I think I'm actually okay with this... I used to like floating things for a short amount of time, but after needing to rearrange floating circles for the 5,000,000,000th time to actually use the app I wanted to be currently using, it can go die in a fire. 
One floating component fits, well, not everyone.

Burritos for days. Paired with some decent margaritas and you have yourself a party. Warning, the inside can get super packed during the cooler months, but it's still a good time.

Blueberry donuts make me smile. A classic cville shop, and still worth going to in our current donut boom. (I'm pretty sure donuts are the new froyo)

Brookville is an excellent spot to satisfy a bacon addiction. Great food and some of the best chicken and waffles I've ever had in my life, although I'm not sure how often they're on the menu(this was during restaurant week).

Great beer. Some of the best in cville. Also a neat atmosphere although it can get a little stuffy at times. Board games to play while you taste some awesome beer makes it even more fun. No food though, outside of food trucks here and there, so don't come too hungry.

Best Tapas in town. Great wine selection and drinks. If you're in cville it's definitely a place everyone should visit at least once.
