So I know I never post on G+ (I do lurk though), but here's the deal.  My employer is looking to double our staff in really short order, like now.  We have a huge opportunity that needs a lot more boots on the ground immediately.

If you or anyone you know has experience in ANYTHING to do with online gaming, meaning programming, unix/linux administration, software engineering, database administration, art, design, etc., etc., send me a message!  It's a small video game studio in Orange County California and it's about the most ridiculously amazing place to work ever.

And I get a kickback if they hire you, so make sure to send it through me!  :P

So funny Erik, I have recently become unemployed (here in Montreal still) , and am still (always) entertaining moving to the Southland.  We should talk, I will ping you offline. :)

I start off frustrated every time I look up how to do something and find that the only hits are Youtube videos.  I prefer to just glance at some written instructions quickly rather than sit still for a 10-minute video.

Then It occurred to me that if the only instructions on how to do something are videos, it's probably something simple enough that I can figure out on my own without a stranger's help.

Yup that pretty much sums up my view on it

I just learned about this. You can install it as middleware on a django server and if you're an administrative user or coming from an authorized IP address (I'm using 127.0.0.1 and coming in over an SSH tunnel), it will report on query time and stack traces for all of the SQL queries made by the django ORM, and lets you run SELECT EXPLAINs on them.

It also extends manage.py so you can instantiate queries in real time and see how the SQL changes.

It's in ubuntu's universe repository (apt-get install python-django-debug-toolbar), and has already helped me figure out why my server started swapping out when I visited a certain page. Wheee!

Oh. Motorola isn't planning to update the Droid X to Ice Cream Sandwich. And cyanogenmod on that device sucks. Maybe it's time for me to think about a different phone.

It's not hackable as much as "make"-able, and being able to do whatever you want with the thing you bought and you own. Some of those things can be very interesting: http://jenkins.vitaminj.co.uk/job/meex http://midi-clorianos.blogspot.com/2011/10/vmpk-fluidsynth-010-released.html .

In fact the N9 is not that hackable (a good thing) because it is locked down by an advanced security framework called Aegis. However alternate totally open kernels are possible including http://wiki.merproject.org and an open-mode kernel: http://maemo.cloud-7.de/950/openmode_kernel_PR1.1/ which was derived from a GPL-source-code request that Nokia fulfilled.

The important aspect of 'Hackabke' is having a phone you can SSH into, has a terminal emulator built-in, and that you can write your own apps==art easily without having to jailbreak... and that crap like http://www.engadget.com/2011/12/01/carrier-iq-what-it-is-what-it-isnt-and-what-you-need-to/ isn't built in....

Oh look.  The latest version of GIMP is native Mac and doesn't require an X server.  And it's been like that since August?  I need to keep up.

Good to know since the Gimp doesn't tell you that a new version is out.

I haven't really been on G+ in about a year, but I listened to a recent TWiT where they were talking about a bunch of the great new features, especially the photo stuff.

Also, [insert complaint about facebook here].

Every time I learn another basic vi command, I giggle like a toddler who got a new puppy.

Perhaps some day I should take the time to learn how to use it properly. It's only been 15 years.

I'm actually less enthusiastic about a 3D printer than I am about this. Who wants to go halfsies...er, no, quartersies...eighthsies? on one of these?

Ah nice! Hey Brian, we could put it somewhere equally inconvenient for both of us. Bakersfield perhaps?
