In celebration, I'm buying a fresh pair of rainbow cycling gloves! This is an old photo, half the colors on my current pairs have sun faded. #LoveWins

store.electrabike.com appears to have them in stock. Ordered. :)

In the 1980s, Van Halen famously banned all brown M&Ms from their dressing room. David Lee Roth, reunited with the band for a new album and tour, explains why.

Wow, that's great.  Like Adam, I've heard the story a few times before, but that was still well worth the five minutes to watch.

Be prepared for your next wine tasting.
Silly Tasting Notes Generator 1.2. Read about it here. Lean almost intense Semillon. Hints of seedless watermelon, attractive nectarine and scant tea notes. Drink now through 2015. Try again! Click Normal or Extra-Silly.

Already got a US T-Mobile (GSM) or Sprint capable device? Stop spending so much money on mobile service. Ting operates as a "MVNO"(1) on their networks. You choose which, based on what your phone is compatible with. They offer simple pay-per-use billing with bucket pricing. None of this "pay for as much as you might possibly need and then some at all times because they charge you tons for going over" crap that a typical carrier plan traps you with.

Until this year Ting was Sprint only, which limited their appeal. They recently added the GSM option which makes life a lot easier as obtaining unlocked GSM phones is easy. With Sprint you always needed a device compatible with their "special" network. No longer true for Ting, yay!

Try their savings calculator and see for yourself.

Yes this is a referral link. If used before EOD June 8th eastern time, you get $100 in service credit as a new customer and I would get $50 credited towards mine. But as I happily point people towards Ting anyways to avoid paying an arm and a leg for mobile service. I'm more than happy to re-share during their referral push.

(1) MVNO - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_virtual_network_operator
Ting is a new mobile phone service that brings clarity, usability and significant monthly savings to US small businesses and families.

I'm a super cheapskate when it comes to mobile networks because I'm not that mobile and I usually have wifi when I'm not actually in motion.  So this is appealing.

I took the next step in my cheap-skate-ness today.  I was on a prepaid $30 t-mobile plan.  I moved to a $20 1G data-only plan and installed hangouts dialer.  Now I get my google voice calls over whatever data network I'm on at the moment (cell or wifi) without using any "cell minutes" or "txts".  Thanks google!

Sounds great. I like that it offers all basic members premium options for club rides including GPS navigation. Hopefully the price is right for a nonprofit club like us.

Stealing Keys from computers using a radio: Cheap Electromagnetic Attacks on Windowed Exponentiation.  Nice use of a software defined radio! - http://www.cs.tau.ac.il/~tromer/papers/radioexp.pdf

Coming soon (if manufacturers know what's good for them): better RF shielding, and hardware switches to open the microphone and camera circuits.

A post from me analyzing Python 3 adoption on PyPI.
At (and since) PyCon 2015, there has been interest in trying to get quantified numbers in relation to Python 3 adoption (see PyPI download numbers and uptake in the astronomy community). One number I am personally interested in is per-project... | Brett Cannon | Python core developer. Tall, snarky Canadian.

The real holdback is Google, supposedly the company of the future, still stubbornly refusing to support Py 3.

Normally a toaster plugged into a wall socket draws 1000 watts. 700w is already underpowering many. Don't confuse your units. Volts is not power.

I was hoping for an issue on net neutrality. Instead it was just the app being lame.

Tasty! Even for non-vegans. Fast take out service. Laugh at the vegan propaganda flyers on your way out.

I rented a touring bike for the day. Great full fendered bike appropriate for the season and good advice on where to ride (including on the Forumla 1 race track :).
