I've really enjoyed his portrayal of Tony Stark. It's pretty cool to hear about his true self.

Just watched the Kung Fu Panda Holiday Special. It's been sitting on the DVR for a couple months now...

Kinda crazy to think: this show is the new Charlie Brown Christmas. Or that kids will be screaming about Master Shifu, instead of the Burgermeister Meisterburger.

And yes... it is a great show, and filled with a double helping of Feelgood.

Very good post about the various Python implementations, wrapped up behind the concept of a singular Python model/interface.

Nice post, but I won't promote or retweet because it's on a recruiting website.

My buddy Artur Bergman started +Fastly a while back, and they're going gangbusters. And now, GitHub is the latest to move onto the Fastly platform.

(Fastly isn't mentioned in the article, but a quick dig/nslookup shows it is the CDN being used)

Heh. Fun with Google: 5 V / 10000 ohm in mA

= 0.5 milliamperes

without the "in mA" it said: = 0.0005 amperes ... it knows V/R gives A ... who needs scientific calculators nowadays?

I often use the Google calculator to check that I have my units right (e.g. 1/2 * 1000 microfarad * (10Volt)^2 ).
Very useful.

Holy crap this is funny. Sure, the funky translation is funny, but what makes this awesome is that she sings the jumbled lyrics just like a real Disney movie song.

This is an interesting question. What makes the healthcare industry so different from other industries?

That said, I think the problem is that people don't know how much health insurance costs because it is employer provided. Without this price issue, health insurance providers are primarily incentivized to offer as much access as possible and can't squeeze health providers for costs. I believe if individuals were paying for insurance and had options, I could decide to pay for higher end to let me see any doctor or pay OR save with more of a Medicare type limited option plan that demands rate cuts and so the top 25% of possible doctors decide to not accept (I don't mean to sound precise with 25%, that's just a number grabbed out of thin air from helping my mom try to find a Medicare primary care doctor).

service. Great atmosphere. Very very tasty food. Ordered the Kitfo (rare) and the lamb. Yum. Might go medium rare on the kitfo next time, as the texture didn't quite work for me. But the flavors were excellent! As a first-timer welcome, they gave us the Yemisisr Wot (spicy lentils), complementary. Wifey and I thought that was the best of the three dishes. An absolute must-order, and possibly even a "destination" food. After dinner, Wifey got the coffee -- served kinda Turkish style, and she gave it a huge thumbs up.

The budin azteca is excellent, as is the queso fundido. The carnitas was fabulous, and prepared very uniquely: the roast pork was very finely shredded, formed into a thin patty square, then a quick fry to get the tasty caramelization on it.

The food was horrible. The mac&cheese were soggy noodles in a bath of flour paste, like you'd find in an elementary school. The BBQ was not juicy/tender at all. We ended up here after seeing it on DDD. What a mistake. Horrible recommendation.
