It's so frustrating when politics gets in the way of some sort of progress on gun control. Form a committee, find a compromise, and get it done!

Here's an idea for the Vision API - upload band photos and with the facial recognition and emotional metrics, determine how happy bands are.

Entities (Porting Drupal 7 modules to Drupal 8)
Preface Wow. Entities. What a mess. I really struggled with this. There's an example of a database-based module not using them and one that does use them. I think it boiled down to me that what I was representing were reports, which seemed very similar to n...

This was a neat place with lots of baked goods and coffee options. Great atmosphere, too.

Good burger. Hard to find parking. Staff rotates around, so you don't have the same waiter throughout the meal.

Decent eastern style BBQ. Neat concept of a BBQ sandwich on bread made from a hushpuppy. Friendly staff and great sides.

The burger is great. I tried the shrimp and they were really hard to peel.
