Nothing earth-shattering in Go 1.3, but a lot of nice performance improvements and fixes. Exactly what I like to see in point releases.

+Fayad Fami: Broad question. Only missing thing IMO is library support for some applications. It's getting there, but ultimately you'd need to evaluate its use for your own projects.

+Douglas Stanley: Almost -- some other teams use it, but not ours [yet]. :)

Claimed a custom URL I guess. Not that I had any choice in what it was. :|

I could not change mine, either.

As a note, it gave me the option of creating a custom url for our LUG, but it was Chicagolugorg (chicagolug.org), so I left it as-is. I felt pretty cool to get just regular "Jim Campbell," though.

Seeing all of the car2gos outside work is pretty funny.

What a weird age we live in where hundreds of cars across the country will simultaneously stop working because of a network error.

TV (Sony Bravia) died on me tonight. Luckily, 3 days before the return window ends. This still makes me grumpy.

Samsung is also on my list that I avoid right now. Have a tv and a washer that both died within a month of each other...luckily both were still under warranty..

Bought a Roku 3. It came with a nice generic power cable. It came with some headphones.

It did not come with an HDMI cable. Seriously?

Well.  How long of one would the average consumer have needed?  How would we define "average consumer" in this case?

I went skiing. Didn't take pictures of that, but here's pictures some from a really high place at the ski resort.

Trying out a new terminal setup. I've switched to zsh, am trying out Solarized, and giving Inconsolata a go.

If you want to try some of these for yourself, I keep my dotfiles on GitHub, so feel free to look around: https://github.com/jpeddicord/dotfiles

Went to Five Guys, saw Pacific Rim, and I got a rug. Good day.
