I've made changes to my floor plan to have an entry door go through the kitchen instead of the living room. A burglar could quickly take all of my stuff before the alarm goes off, although it is very important to have security cameras indoor and out.

Thought I'd like to get the word out to everyone for viewing pleasure.

Microsoft is getting in people's minds including me and her. It's a violation of trust, reputation, and respect from people who still want to use Windows 7.

Currently, I'm running Linux since November of 2012.

Anyway, here are the other videos you might be interested in:

This is my dream floor plan that I made using AutoDesk HomeStyler.

The dining table goes above the cabinet where the silverware will be located and I like having a small kitchen.

The dream house is going to be about 850 square feet minus a garage where my tricycle will be stored in there.

Without the two extra rooms, it will feel like living in a tiny house. That will be around 500--maybe 600 square feet if I only have a combined living room/bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room.

I love space-saving ideas.

This could be useful for 800 square feet house:

Google I/O 2016: Google Home

Ah... What a wonderful show. And wonderful music as well.

Google Home is so cool. I would love to have something like this if I could have it talk to Home Assistant (https://home-assistant.io/).

I would also love to have Nest Thermostat and Nest Protect if only to have it communicate within the network and only make cloud (the buzzword for the Internet) be an extension to smart home devices. Should my Internet connection fail, I would want to be able to communicate with all my devices using my smartphone and tablet. Google Home can simply say "I'm sorry, but the Internet connection is down" if I try to ask them to set the thermostat or turn on the lights; which at that point I can use my smartphone for particular tasks.

Perhaps Tensor Processor Unit can be connected to my server, but I don't know how the connection would work despite that I can build my own server from hardware components myself. At that point, Google Home could communicate to my Home Assistant server by using a TPU, am I right?

Thanks, Google!

Oh... I am completely blown away by OLED in my smartphone while watching The Incredibles. No, really! I was so blown away at the pitch-blackness when Mr. Incredible went into the secret room with an enormous screen after sneaking in through the lair. Do you know what I mean when that big wall of flame revealed the path to the pitch-black room when Mr. Incredible went in and the floor lights light the path to the computer?

Well, I was looking at Mr. Incredible where the entire room is pitch black. Black is as black as it can get in my smartphone. But in my 27" monitor and 40" Samsung TV, black is as dark gray as it can get. And you know what? I am tired of LCD screens. I am so ready to throw out all of my LCD screens out into the woods once I can afford OLED TV and OLED monitor.

I hate LCDs. I would rather have CRT televisions and monitors crush LCD screens any day despite it being so bulky--well, I could care nothing about the bulk, because as long as it can produce blackness as it's intended by movie directors, who cares how bulky CRT televisions are?

Yes, I do live with LCD screens for so long and I did not have that much of a choice at all. But I've got to be patient until I can afford OLED technology and that would make me feel like going back to the days of CRT minus the bulk.

Even though I will miss out on 5.1 surround sound, I feel like movies are what is meant to be watched in a smartphone. And same for WALL-E and TRON: LEGACY.

Hi, everyone. It seems Google made a subtle change on how you post. It seems Google now remembers which community you post in which while the feature seems convenient, it simply caused me a screw up because I now did not pay attention in where I post. I was going to post something in "Public" which I assumed, but I posted something in Google Help and Google I/O.

To avoid the screw-up like I did, click in the name of the community next to your name and choose the right community or choose Public from the list.

To me, this feature does not make sense at all. But what may make sense is if "Public" is selected by default. Still, if I want to post in the community, I will go directly to that community by clicking in "Communities" to the left, choose from the list of communities, and start a new post there. If I am not posting to any of communities that I joined, I will go directly to the home page and post there which gets visible by the public.

And that is what's called logic and I hope I'm not the only one who did not pay attention to the change.

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.
