Why would a stranger video call me via Hangouts after 1:00 AM EST?

Ugh...

I blocked them without hesitation.

Strangers are weirdos for sure.

If I were to switch over to Mac OS X from Linux, I would once I buy an Apple Mac Mini for that. In the meantime, I can get along with Linux fragmentation just fine.

But then as a Linux user, I still want to get the best of both worlds of Mac and Linux. I want to have the cohesive, consistent experience provided by the Mac while allowing me to work with Linux under the hood.

elementary OS is one, but it does not have global menu. No Spotlight at all. deepin Linux is cool, but nah. I don't like deepin applications that does not have that professional look of a Mac.
The Linux desktop has so much to offer. There are so many choices. Still, it’s almost impossible to have your cake and eat it too.

Does anyone know of an alternative to HGTV and DIY Network for those who want to cancel Sling TV? I'm paying about $28/month for just two channels. I don't watch ESPN that much so I'm willing to miss out in sports.

Oh...

I do not trust Internet of Things, especially Internet-connected security cameras and baby monitors. Even with a 30-character random-generated password.
An in-depth analysis of yet another Internet-connected security camera has revealed a host of software problems.

For those who are interested in making epic music, this video is for you.

For me, I'm not into making a film kind of music, but I do take the kind of advice into account when making music at home.

I use Linux and have Digital Sound Factory Studio Orchestra. It will be new age/world/easy listening kind of music.

Epcot has a special place within my heart regardless of Disney attractions--good or bad. No matter how much I try to get with the times when Disney has to adapt and please everyone.

The Living Seas with Nemo and Friends is not my place to visit.

I mean, Epcot feels so unique that I think it should have its own theme park that is not Disney. Not something that's based upon movies. Maybe a "Future World" plaza without World Showcase? But it wouldn't be Epcot, would it? Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow?

Why not take out World Showcase but have Tomorrowland with Carousel of Progress? Oh, wait! That would be Disney! Oh, well.

Prepare for bankruptcy if you do not follow USB-C specifications so you can fry your customers' devices...

You of all the manufacturers who do not comply with USB-C specifications are dangerous to your customers.

My Google Play music page is now live!

I don't think Google Play has an ability to name the price, so I'm leaving it as "free." I just hope my song has value for those who like to listen to it.

Enjoy!

Introduction
Hi. My name is Grayson Peddie and I am a man who loves to live in the technology-centric city with environmental-friendliness in mind. For that, I really love the Future World of Epcot. I dream of living in cities where people can walk, skate, or ride their bikes in streets. And maybe even have a couple of driverless cars that can take you anywhere you want to go. Do you know that Google is still working in the driverless car project?

Anyway, I love computers and I'm planning to be a web designer for a living as I've focused myself in HTML5 and CSS3. In the past, I did learn a couple of programming/scripting languages, like C#, C++ (haven't done Windows programming), ASP.net, and Javascript. For Android, since I know C# pretty well, Java is not that hard to learn as I've created my own GPS-enabled application as a cyclocomputer for those using a bicycle or a tricycle.

One of my hobbies are working with Linux and Windows, create music in Linux, play Japanese Role Playing games (RPG) like Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, and Dragon Quest), watch The First 48 and Parking Wars, and watch Star Trek-related movies and TV shows.
