"Spending the morning with your child, enjoying a pat with a friendly dog or eating pancakes at a cafe may just be the only little lovely time a mother gets with her child all day. All week. Or, all month. "

Or in other words: "you don't know someone's journey at the point you encounter them, so be nice and understanding at all times."
“YOUR child is stealing,” she yelled at me.

If you structure your password around the XKCD Password Strength comic (http://xkcd.com/936/) you might want to watch this ted talk about password security.
Lorrie Faith Cranor studied thousands of real passwords to figure out the surprising, very common mistakes that users — and secured sites — make to compromise security. And how, you may ask, did she study thousands of real passwords without compromising the security of any users? That's a story in itself. It's secret data worth knowing, especially if your password is 123456 ...

Yeah. I kinda figured that this one would be about as good as any other Adam Sandler film. 

Good to know I was right.

The "Mind The Lines" subheading in this article helped me understand how to use the Rule Of Thirds grid lines in my Camera app. The subject of your photo should be at the intersecting point of the lines in the middle third of the grid. 👍
Taking great photos isn’t just about having a nice camera. I’m a firm believer that good photography comes from smart photographers who think creatively and know how to make the most of what they’v...

Story

Geek, Technical Writer, Pinball fan, scooter boi, father.
Introduction
Hi, I'm Jared (or jaredmorgs on most social media and forums I frequent).

Here's what I like, and why I'm using Google+

What I like
  • Learning about Android shenanigans, 
  • Pinball (both IRL and simulated),
  • Scooters, 
  • Beta Testing Android apps, 
  • Contributing to Android App documentation. 
Why I'm using G+
  • Facebook is becoming a freemium network. Promoting your posts for a cost: how about "no thanks".
  • Twitter is good for quick updates, but not for expressing what you really think without committing crimes against grammar.
  • G+ is a "rich experience". 
  • You don't have to beg for access to a person's profile so you can see what they're about.
  • Public posting is the norm, not the exception.

I'm a pretty regular visitor to Blue Infusion. Namely because this cafe really caters well for family outings. We treat our kids to a babycino (free) and a small treat (usually under $1) from the cake cabinet. The cakes are all baked on premise, and they have a distinctly English theme. Cakes like the Almond and Rhubarb Bakewell Tart are a highlight for me. You can get a cake and coffee deal for about $6.50 at the time of writing this review. Great for groups of people, individuals wanting a great coffee fix in North Lakes without the crowds of Westfield, and parents wanting to feel normal and go out for an outing.

I took my wifes' rings to Gold River to get them Rhodium Plated again after a long, hard married life on her finger. I have to say they look jeweler shop new after getting them done. I was told that some jewelers in North Lakes only immerse the rings for 10 seconds in the solution (and charge around $130 for the privilege) :(. These guys immerse the rings for 3 minutes. At the standard rate of $65/ring, this is *fantastic* value. We did have an issue with a slipped stone from the ring when we got it home, but this was quickly rectified by the jeweler for free when we informed them. The jeweler also puts the ring through the ultrasonic machine before the plating process, which is what caused the stone to dislodge. When I returned, the on-site jeweler did a check of the entire setting and did notice a few other stones that were loose. I wonder if this check was done on the other rings we got re-plated as well? I would have thought the setting would have been checked either post-ultrasonic treatment, or before putting them through the machine. Maybe change this part of the process to ensure this doesn't happen to other customers.

Stocks pseudoephedrine products like cold and flu tabs. You need to go in person with photo ID and request the product.

Do not pass Taylor Street Coffee Shop without trying the Taylor Street Hash. Sweet mother of FSM, this stuff is an addiction I won't be able to get out of my head for a while. The queue can sometimes be a bit long, but if you decide to wait in a queue of 5 diners, you should be able to get a seat in about 10 mintues. Food is reasonably priced, and service is super fast.
