Anywhere in Upstate New York or Pennsylvania I would move to an area to have this available. Doubly so with the only higher speed option being time warner cable with is being swallowed whole by an even worse service. Comcrap. We need more competition.

A few drops of irony?

Correct, and that's why it's only a few drops of irony. :-)

I'll say it. I <3 daylight savings time and everything about it.

I'm a bit undecided on its effects on winter. We could do like Russia and make it "all DST, all the time" and get sun late into the evening every day. But that would eventually just shift our concept of time, and everyone would go to work later and everything would open later, and we'd be back to wasting our summer mornings.

But no, DST doesn't make sense for everyone. Particularly if you are close to the equator, or in the opposite case, so far away from it that your solar hours weren't that useful to begin with.

Also, no, DST is not an energy saving scheme anymore. That's an easy straw man to knock down, so go ahead and knock it down if you wish :-) The commercial and cultural aspect is important. 9pm summer sun is something many of us would go crazy without.

I worked on Google Calendar for years and had to deal with it. It was a lot of work, but it's small in comparison to the amount of social impact it had across all sorts of people. (What percentage of the world's population is even a software engineer?)

We more hated when countries changed their mind a week in advance of a proposed switch.

Two flavors created in heaven. Which did you choose?

(I chose Chicken&Waffles. Tasted exactly like the real thing!)

You have to try their Snow dessert -- it's like ice cream meets cotton candy. The food was fine -- I'm guessing Taiwan isn't known for their spicy foods, so next time I go I'll try dishes that aren't supposed to be spicy.

I went here once a long time ago when I needed a new tire (urgently!) and they helped me select a good one and get on my way. They were fine with me changing my tire myself right outside the store and using their pump, and they even helped me get the old tire off free of charge (I couldn't deflate it because the valve was full of healing goo). I went there again yesterday to switch the back tire, and the price for that tire even went down!

I work for Google, and it's definitely by far the most awesome place you could work! I work on challenging, exciting problems, and am well taken care of (free food, drinks).
