Introduction
I believe that G+'s rules about pseudonymity and anonymity were wrong-headed, potentially dangerous, culturally deaf, useless, and basically stupid.

I'm also frustrated that they managed to have seemingly neutered a site that could've been So Much Better than FB.

On an otherwise working fixture (ceiling fan), what does a wonky socket with a bit of charing mean? Can it be fixed without replacing the whole thing?

Cleaned, terminals tightened, and as noted above, movement of the socket rear contact.

Aliens try to invade Earth using by our own videogames against us. It's the best premise, ever. 
A heaping dose of 1980s arcade nostalgia, featuring everyone from evil Donkey Kong to Game of Thrones alum Peter Dinklage.

I'm reading "Ready Player One" right now, and enjoying it, looking forward to the film.

In between Chris Lydon and Tom Ashbrook, wbur had a heap of hosts in the 10-noon slot. One - a British woman - was there longer than the rest.

Who was that??

I think I was out of the country during the interregnum.

I will throw out, unsolicited, that my favorite On Point guest host is Jacki Lydon, and my least, by a wide margin, is Jane Clayson.

That's a Prius doesn't have the intelligence designed into it to say "my battery will be completely flat soon, I should shut down everything before I am unable to restart, and wait until I am powered on correctly and able to recharge said battery", is nuts.

shrug adds price to the vehicle.  My Audi has that capability, load shedding all auxiliary devices when powered off so that in the worst case you might get find that the remote and power locks don't work and no lights come on but you can still start the engine.  It's a much more expensive car.

If that were food in the fridge, we'd be calling it "leftovers". Not exactly the sort of thing I'd be inclined to do with end-of-batches of beer.
