Last Christmas, I thought it would be a great idea to get my wife a year's subscription to +Amazon.com's Kindle Unlimited--Worst. Gift. Ever.

In five months, she's only ever found one Kindle Unlimited book that she actually wanted to read. She's tried "discovering new authors" through the service. She's tried looking through the "Popular and New" lists, and sorting by Rating--it's all either crap, not her thing, or we already own it.

We finally tried to just cancel the remaining 7 months of the service, to discover that Amazon "can't" discontinue or refund a gifted service. If I'd just told her, "Merry Christmas hon, go sign up for this service," we could have canceled it at any time, but since I thought it would be nice to have her receive it as a "gift," she's stuck with it, and we're stuck with $70 worth of a service that turned out to be Very, Very Limited. After hours chatting with a customer support rep, all they could give us was a $20 discount on future digital purchases.

If you know people who like to read, please share this experience with them.

Thanks for the tip! In my opinion, there's no beating real books... There's something special about them. :P

"Before, such a beamsplitter was over 100 by 100 microns. Thanks to a new algorithm for designing the splitter, Menon’s team has shrunk it to 2.4 by 2.4 microns, or one-fiftieth the width of a human hair and close to the limit of what is physically possible."

Science FTW!

Loving our new digs at +Aviacode. Plenty of space, a little sunshine, and Uplift Desk standing desks.

The inconveniences of corruption and tyranny outweigh the inconveniences of liberty. Join me in demanding limits on the government's surveillance of its citizens.
It’s time to put an end to out-of-control government spying. Say YES to the #USAFreedomAct:

"We challenge all youth to avoid bullying, insults, or language and practices that deliberately inflict pain on others. All of these violate the Savior’s command to love one another."
Dallin H. Oaks teaches that as disciples of Jesus Christ, we are to love others and live peacefully with those whose beliefs differ from our own.

A message of hope for those who may feel alone, and caution for those fortunate enough to have avoided pornography thus far. Women can get addicted just like men.

"If you are an LDS woman struggling with porn in any form, you are not alone. I get it, we don't talk about LDS woman addicted to porn in the church. But I assure you, I have seen as many women as men who are struggling, you are not alone. There is hope!"
 
An Unspoken Struggle: LDS Women Addicted to Pornography
"So. I am an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and have been my entire life. My struggles with pornography began in 2003 out of a mix of boredom and curiosity. For years now, I have felt like one day I would share my experien...

"What good is it to spend $20 billion on Mother's Day and drop our dirty clothes on the floor Monday morning?"
Mother's Day: According to the National Retail Federation, you and I will drop north of $20 billion on our mothers this week.

As i share to people you only have one mother cherish her love her respect her and always let your mom know in action and deed how much you appreciate your mom and love her. you have one mom and one life so love and appreciate your mothers because once your mothers are gone from this world to heaven its not the same on earth when your mom is not here. once your mom is gone a part of you is gone.my dear beloved mother has been in heaven since 1992 and i am glad i let my mom know in action and deed And in words that i loved my mother dearly. i know she loved me dearly and i know i will see her when i go to heaven. its never the same human wise when your mom isnt here and everyone else has mothers

Call Me Maybe is now in Beta. If you're still getting null reference exceptions, there's no excuse. It's time to undo Tony Hoare's billion-dollar mistake.

Maybe<> is the class you don't know you've been missing. It will help you prevent bugs you didn't think you could prevent.

Even though it's super simple and light-weight, I've spent a lot of time and thought on this library, to make sure it "just works." It's heavily unit-tested, and well-documented. It has been used successfully in production environments for about a year, with no surprises. Please share this with your C# programmer friends, spend some time with it, and give me feedback. I'd like to have a Release version available soon.

Thanks, everyone who's tried this already. I just realized I published the Nuget package without the promised XML documentation. Please check out v0.6.1.

When my son wanted to take karate, I spent some time looking around before finding Pursuit of Mastery. Not only were they cheaper than the other places we checked out, but the positive energy of this place is amazing. They've clearly got their act together, with some phenomenal instructors and a well-thought-out curriculum. The facilities and decor help to flesh out the professional feel. I liked what I saw so much that I decided to start taking classes here too. Now, almost a year later, I'm still super impressed with the quality and range of instruction. The instructors encourage a positive learning environment that inspires all the students to work together to become their best. I only regret that my busy life only lets me go here twice a week.
