Preparing for Polymer 1.0 - hangout-app

Slowly but steadily migrating my elements to Polymer 0.9 :)

#gde   #googleplus   #polymer #html5 #article  
It must have been shortly after the Chrome Dev Summit in 2013 that I first started looking into Polymer. A lot has changed since then and most of the code I had written for the early versions of Polymer looks completely diffe...

Today we barbecued/smoked spareribs for the first time on our kettle grill.

We used a minion ring which was perfect to keep the temperature fairly stable between 110°C and 140°C, added some mesquite wood chips along the ring for taste and kept the spareribs in there for about 4 hours, rearranging them every once in a while.

They tasted quite different from how we usually make them (just in the oven at ~200°C). Maybe a bit too salty but definitely a tasty experience :)

Oh, wow, I didn't realize that a new King's Quest is coming out. I generally loved the series, even though I didn't really enjoy the last one "Mask of Eternity". My favourite of the series is probably King's Quest VI: Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow (might actually have to play that one again...)
 
Looking more and more like a real thing that will actually be released. It's been almost 20 years since Mask of Eternity! (via private share)
Christopher Lloyd! Tom Kenny! Zelda Williams! Wallace Shawn! And several others not featured in this video (like Loretta Devine and Kath Soucie)!

Well, we were one person short who wasn't able to make it, and with grilling we usually have too much stuff anyway. I prefer to grill everything and then eat it cold or re-heated later, rather than keeping raw ingredients around.

Since there currently doesn't seem to be a way to tell a little bit more about your collections except in the title, I've put together this collection with shares to all my collections with a little bit more info of what to expect inside.

#TIL that you can use $0 in the Google Chrome Dev console to reference the currently selected element. Would have saved me a lot of typing endless query selectors for testing in the past :)

Of course there's also a lot of important information for you in there if you are currently migrating or getting into Polymer 0.9.

I recently came by this area which actually is a detention basin as part of Vienna's flood control system. My first thought was: this would be the perfect area for beavers.

Based on that hunch we went out there today during dusk, and yes! We saw two beavers. Unfortunately it was too dark for my eyes and the camera to do proper focussing, but here are the two best shots I was able to make. We'll try again tomorrow at dawn :)

Now playing: Antichamber

I actually played this game quite a while, but seeing it in my Steam library again, I thought I'd give it another try.

I remember the first time playing through that there were quite a few moments where I suddenly found myself not knowing what the heck was actually going on and what just happened. In this game you can't expect anything to be or work like you would first expect. Floors suddenly disappear underneath you, and by simply turning around you could find yourself in a completely different location.

Knowing what to expect makes those moments less confusing, even though I was still surprised several times because of things I didn't remember quite like they were.

The puzzles are enjoyable and even sometimes a little trivial if you already know some of the tricks early that you don't learn until later in the game. But it is quite a nice learning experience and the game is good a leading you without becoming too easy.

At any point in the game you can just return to the starting chamber where you have a map to re-visit any places you have been to which helps a lot since finding places again could be difficult otherwise, and you can also check where there are still new paths to explore.

Our garden is developing nicely :)

The new plants seem to be happy in their new home, the first fruits are beginning to show on the trees and the vegetables are growing.

You are much ahead... up here last snow is just about to melt... almost...

This summer I figured that I try those fabric pots... should air-prune all the roots and such... one only knows after a one go.

So there you have it, a collection of collections ;)
