Do you ever get the feeling that airline companies are stealing their business model from the free-to-play MMO industry?

Here's a little ditty a dragon might sing to himself as he reorganizes his lair.

To the tune of "Everybody Wants to be a Cat"

Ev'rybody wants to be a drake
When the drake is awake
Better pray for your sake.
Ev'rybody wants to be a scaly beast
'Cause dragons are never obsolete.

With a big blast of flame
As he steals your dame
With a flap of his wings...
And a substantial hoard
So he never gets bored
For a million days...

I loved the original version of that song when I was a wee kid, so this version is a double hoot for me! Thanks, James.

“In North Korea a USB drive is like gold.”
On a cloudy, moonless night somewhere in northeastern China, three men creep through a stand of Japanese Clethra trees. They carry no flashlights, and the sky is so dark that they hear the sound of the rushing Tumen River before they see it: They’ve arrived at the North Korean border. Earlier in the evening at…

Buy someone a muffin today!
 
Happy Derpy Day to all of you, my friends!

If you aren't familiar with it, Derpy Day is a celebration of friendship. Of the relationships in our lives and how our lives are enriched by them. It comes every March 1st, and it is one of the few holidays I enthusiastically celebrate.

So I encourage everyone to take a few minutes today to think about the people who mean the most in your life. And if you can, write one of them a letter. It doesn't have to be a long letter, just something telling them how much they mean to you.

The other main tradition of Derpy Day is muffins. Bake or buy your favorite muffin, and eat it with a smile. Maybe even give a muffin to someone else. Muffin-shaped cakes are also acceptable. :D

Wishing you all a day full of love, joy, and muffins!

I never liked muffins. My parents ate a lot of them when I was little, and were always trying to get me to eat them too, for breakfast. I recall that the first breakfast muffins I was given were bran muffins -- dry and chewy bran muffins.

I've loathed muffins pretty much ever since -- more for you, pal!

I did! Oops! It is kind of archetypal "survive college" food, isn't it? :-) Glad I could help! Or rather, glad my sister-in-law could help us both!

76% of developers are either satisfied or very satisfied with their jobs. And 42% of them are self-taught. It's amazing how far you can take yourself with a cheapo laptop and an Internet connection today!
Where do developers live? How much do developers earn? Vim or Emacs? Tabs or spaces? This is the most comprehensive software developer survey on earth.

A little over a year ago, I commented on Reddit, "You know, I don't know if I will ever play Destiny, because it looks like it might not come out on PC. But I know sure as hell I'm gonna get an awesome soundtrack."

And I was right!

Yeah, the soundtrack is pretty impressive, but I no longer have any interest in buying the game itself.

Passwords are not a great system for the majority of users--either they're too simple to be secure, or they're too hard to remember (so you write them down, where they can be stolen), or you use a small number of good passwords across a large number of sites (so when one gets hacked, you're in trouble). I'm hoping that (with cooperation from websites) this new feature of Windows can largely eliminate passwords and improve security for a very large number of people.

BLOG: Remembering Leonard Nimoy

Normally, I’m pretty good with words. At the moment, I’m not at my best, for reasons I hope are self evident. However, I’m going to do my best to remember someone who gave more to my life than he ever knew. I never got to know Leonard Nimoy the way my…
Mister Spock made it okay for me to be the weird kid who eventually grew into a slightly-less weird adult, but it was Leonard Nimoy who made Mister Spock live, and who made Star Trek possible.

Excellent service. I made a stupid mistake with regards to the service I requested, and they were very gracious about working with me.

When I first moved in at Terra Village, the management was very difficult and unpleasant to deal with. Happily, those people are gone and the new management is quite gracious and pleasant. The rates there are fairly good. One thing I like about it is that instead of charging "pet rent" (increasing the monthly cost of your rent for as long as you live there), they just ask for a one-time "pet deposit". If you plan an extended stay, this can save lots of money. The grounds are kept up pretty well, but my neighbors were often noisy. I wish the office was open longer and that I could place outgoing mail in a local mailbox instead of going down to the post office. But they do nice things like deep-cleaning everyone's carpets periodically, publishing a little monthly newsletter, and sometimes asking for feedback from their tenants. Overall this is a fairly nice little apartment complex. The location is really convenient, five minutes away from the Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design that I attended, and a similar distance from the lovely Sloan's Lake community. It's not a deluxe place to live, but the prices are really good, the location is great, and the service has some nice little perks that make this an enjoyable stay.

Lovely little vet clinic. Spotlessly clean and well-lit, with friendly and professional staff. They took care of my pet reasonably quickly, and the price was fair. Very glad to have such a nice clinic convenient to my home in St. James.

Love this place! Open 24 hours (the whole thing, not just the drive-thru), electrical outlets, and a fireplace! Great place to sit down with your laptop and work. They even gave me some free coffee after my first few purchases. Only thing that's missing is wi-fi. Great for all-night study sessions!
