I made this thingy-mah-jig because I'm tired of not having these desktop notifications in office 365, like I used to in google apps.

I could've gone down farther and filled that in, but I'm too lazy, and it was just carpet anyways.

Was kind of bored during lunch and submitted two locations to  #ingress today, hoping to have them picked up as new portals.

I'll admit, with Ubuntu 12.04 coming out soon, I want a linux client for Google Drive as well! #DriveForLinux

I decided to try and do something worthwhile for our faction in  #ingress , and went with +Erika Childers  and our two dogs to a nearby graveyard late last night (this one: http://goo.gl/szP6q).  We then spent around 20 minutes walking around while I attacked a crap ton of resonators and claimed 5 or 6 portals from the enemy.  Being after dark, we both felt like big, nerdy creeps as we wandered around a cemetery.  I kind of enjoyed it, even if my attempts to explain the details of my actions kind of floundered, since Erika hasn't gotten an invite yet.

So far, I think #ingress  will replace geocaching as my once-in-a-while hobby of choice, assuming it stays interesting. Both require me to get out of the house and go discover new places, but there are some additional hooks in ingress that give it a leg up: the social aspect and the gaming aspect.  There is a comms channel that you can scope to your local area or region, and then communicate with others around you to coordinate the creation of portal networks, or coordinate attacks on enemy portals. The gaming aspect, I would hope, is pretty obvious, as #ingress  pits you against enemies and provides a competitive and replayable aspect to the whole shebang.

I guess it's hard for +Brandon Badger to look through all the posts tagged with #ingress , as he originally intended.  Or my post just sucked... :)

Alright, Google+. You brought me back with this UI update. I'll hang around for a while.

The one time I've been here it has been great. However, right now I'm sitting in the parking lot at 4:45 on a Saturday and they are closed, despite the hours online stating that they are open until 6pm. I've seen cars get turned away for being near closing the last time I was here. So, my impression is unreliable, even if it's good when they're open. Edit: dropping my rating because I just showed up at 5:15 on a sat and they were closed, even though gmaps says they're open to six. What is going on with this place?

Would be an okay realty company if they ever answered their phone. For years, it's been a consistent answering machine message whenever I try to call these people. ANSWER YOUR PHONE.

Just wanted to say that the Dixie Ave Wendy's just provided two hungry teenagers with about $10 of value menu items, and they did it with a positive attitude that did not flinch when we requested to add onto our order.

They let you use each coupon up to five times, and I received great & friendly service. Thumbs up to this place!

College student at nearby Georgia Tech. Been here about three times. Girlfriend liked it. Parents seemed to like it (they said it was like a 'more adult version of applebees or chilis'). I give props for the beer sampler, and for the humongous beer mugs. Big screen TVs hanging around bar are good for sports fans. Only thing I didn't like too much was the Asian plate I ordered once. Could have been my mood, though.
