+J.J. Valenzuela I have. This playlist also includes actually quite a bit of the new show. About 50% of it makes it to tru.tv's YouTube.

This is why I never look at investors or 'analysts' for insight on the industry... Investors are often misinformed and invest based on trendy news without a lot of actual understanding of what is going on. After all of the news of Nintendo's stocks skyrocketing over Pokémon GO, this seemed inevitable.
Nintendo shares have skyrocketed since following Pokémon Go's release and instant transformation into global cultural phenomenon, but they fell dramatically today after investors realized that...

I don't even, what is this?
Online swiping and messaging is all well and good, but what about when you want to actually connect with a fellow human in person? We’re making that process of meeting someone new as easy as confirming at the click of a button.

+Jake Weisz wandering around solo catching Pokemon would likely just be too creepy in my demographic even if it is trendy crud. Given the fact that I'm usually found at work, home, or a supermarket, I doubt that will change, lol

Setting everything up on my main PC from a fresh install is a pain in the rear. But all computers now run Windows 10.

Since I've lived at my current place, my neighbor's trashy probably nonfunctional car has not moved. In over 18 months, it's been in that parking space. I've piled snow in front of it in the winter, because I was so confident it wouldn't be moving.

Next week, I guess we'll find out what my parking lot looks like without it. They're doing work on the driveway, and are going to tow anything that isn't moved.

Yeah, I get the situation. I could see me doing that for a short period with a dead car. Short though. Not that length.

Niantic possibly in trouble with Germany over it's ability to give users' data to third parties.
Pokémon Go has proved almost unbelievably popular, and like any app that gains a huge following, malicious versions of the app soon appeared. The game has been in the headlines after hackers knocked gaming servers offline, but there have also been major privacy concerns.

Germany is very strict with this type of thing. The type of spam that is acceptable or grey in the US is straight up criminal over here in Germany / Austria. Goes a little too far some time. People break the law on a regular basis by just doing business.

Just, you know, leaving this here.
 
Just some facts about Pokemon Go. The history of the company that created it (including ties to the CIA) and the data that it can collect.

No opinion from me on this. No editorializing here. Simply some facts so that people can draw their own conclusions.
Before playing Pokémon Go, consider the data the game has access to, the history of Niantic Labs and its connection with the CIA and the NSA.

It may be a little surprising to some, but apparently Chicago officers have the experience and training to use Tasers when possible. But as I regularly see people ask why an officer didn't tase someone, this is why. They tased this guy twice, and it wasn't effective. We need better less-lethal weaponry than tasers.

It's kinda ugly, but even the Enterprise-D looks pretty when shot from the right angles.

It's based on the old Star Trek Phase II design.

My home automation software is "good enough" for me most of the time now. I went from my old commit a day regimen to roughly a commit a month. Partially because I've been doing other things, and partially because it pretty much works as-is. There's some major rearchitecting I want to do with it, but it's not really necessary for how I'm using it.

In light of the major heat warnings, I realized it'd be nice if I got notified if it got uncomfortably far outside a reasonable temperature range inside my condo. Such a condition would indicate a failure of my air conditioner, which I previously wouldn't have expressly been informed of.

Introduction
Fair warning, if I choose to circle you, I will probably regularly comment on you too. It's what I do.

I am an IT geek, a gamer, and a scifi nerd. I have --Asperger's Syndrome-- autism (seriously, no strikethrough here?), my cute little mental disorder that is responsible for my peculiar obsession with minor details and ability to remember excessively complex numerical systems.


I'm an avid Android user, possessing multiple Androids, in addition to the variety of Windows computers I run on a daily basis. I have an odd obsession with 2.5" SATA hard drives, don't ask why.

A list of my computers can be found at http://www.ocdtrekkie.com/machines.php

And if this is Navi, I still love you.

A great addition to any Paris vacation. We had a lot of fun exploring their video games exhibition and their submarine! A particular bonus was number of displays that were available in English as well as French.

Reasonably priced buffet. Food is decent/good, selection is small though. Drinks are free. Dining area is reminiscent of a cafeteria.

A decent-priced hotel in an extremely convenient location in downtown San Francisco. I was impressed by the service and style of this hotel located in this over one-hundred year-old building. RFID-based room keys and such were a nice novelty. On the downside, my heater did not work, and was not repaired during my four-night stay. They did provide me extra blankets. And the walls are very thin. One morning I awoke to the couple in the adjoining room (which is only a single door for separation) having some fun in bed.

Let me preface by saying that I don't like Mexican food. But that being said... Despite that it was too spicy for my tastes, the salmon I had was incredible. Service was great, and honestly, the prices were quite fair as well.

I was looking for somewhere relatively cheap in an area where food is a lot more expensive than home. For less than the cost of fast food, Jasmin's Cafe provided a great meal, that was freshly-prepared. A worthwhile place to grab a meal while near Union Square.

Easily the nicest hotel I've stayed in. Hotel Avante has a great atmosphere, and great service. The cleaning staff always leaves a friendly note with a couple pieces of candy behind. The hotel is geared towards "creative people", with Idea notepads around the room, as well as various puzzles. Wi-Fi is as good as at home or better. A truly enjoyable stay.
