For any who want to mess around, I finished up my Python boardgamegeek api library.  It's pretty simple, but it's also subsequenty pretty easy to use.  You can check it out at:

Oh, also, I have an example usage of this library.  I use it to generate the JSON for this page ( http://games.splitstreams.com ), with a simple Flask-Rest API.  The source for this is not at all polished, but if people are interested in that, I can pass that along as well.

Also, as kind of an easter egg, you can generate that list with your collection by adding a simple username=<your_bgg_username> to the end of the url.  For example, my bgg username is crustymonkey (which is, unsurprisingly, the default) and if I wanted it to show my collection:

http://games.splitstreams.com?username=crustymonkey

Note that the first time you go to load the page, it will take a long time (up to ~45 seconds) to load, depending on the size of your collection.  I have implemented server-side in-memory caching, so subsequent loads will be faster.

ARLINGTON, VA— Following the release of a report indicating that the agency failed 95 percent of security tests, the Transportation Security Administration announced Tuesday that agents will now simply stand at airport checkpoints and remind all passengers that everybody will eventually die someday.

Android 5.1 day 1.  This is (finally) the Lollipop you were looking for.  I finally feel like I have a usable Nexus 5 again.

First, the unforgivable fucking memory leak has apparently been fixed.

I actually have much better cell connectivity.  I'm not really sure how this is the case, but it is.

My battery life seems to have returned.  Most likely this is due to the previous 2 fixes.

Everything is much snappier.  This is most likely due to the fact that the OS doesn't have an inexcusable memory leak of fucking doom.

Seriously Google, 5.0.x was a fucking embarrassment.  Please don't punish your customers like that again.

I have no idea. It wasn't like it took a long time to be blatantly obvious either. I was rebooting my phone once every 2-3 days because of it.

Many don’t understand why they should be concerned about surveillance if they have nothing to hide. It’s even less clear in the world of 'oblique' surveillance, given that apologists will always frame our use of information-gathering services like a mobile phone plan or Gmail as a choice. if everyone’s every action were being monitored, and everyone technically violates some obscure law at some time, then punishment becomes purely selective.

Late last night, I posted a couple of pictures of a game I was playing, along with a very short (and admittedly, very ambiguous) comment about the state of a game my friends and I were playing.

When I woke up this morning, I found a handful of comments on it, some just asking what the game was, and/or whether my comment was about the game itself or the game situation.  However, there was one other person who just jumped in and threatened to delete the post the next time these certain bits of critical information weren't on there.

Ok, I can understand that there are community standards, and I have no problem with that.  But really, this is supposed to be an open community about something fun.  This is a community about board games, not building the next space shuttle.  People make mistakes.  Instead of jumping on the post and throwing immediately throwing threats around, how about just saying that, for the sake of everyone, there are certain standards we all try to adhere to.  Be helpful and encouraging rather than threatening.

I have to say that, after this post, I will never post in this community again.  It's unfortunate because the overwhelming majority of people in this community seem to excellent people, but this experience has completely turned me off to actually participating again.  If you are managing/moderating a community, be supportive.  Don't stomp on the very things that make your community thrive,  the people themselves.

This is why I hate eating out in the burbs. The food always steers towards mediocre, at best. Seriously, a $13 burger at a steakhouse should not be unseasoned, frozen, pre-pattied, over-cooked crap. It's really not that hard to use and patty a fresh burger and toss a little bit of salt and pepper on it. Also, this is in Seattle, where we have an abundance of local craft beers; you could at least have 1 or 2 of those on tap rather than just suburban puke beer (Budweiser and it's horrid ilk). I won't ever eat here again.

This place is amazing. I had the absolute best mocha I've ever had at this place. The staff are very friendly and the surroundings are comfortable. And BEST MOCHA EVER.

When I walked in, the place was empty during prime dinner hours on a Thursday night. Now I see why. A burger joint that serves obviously, pre-made frozen hamburger patties. Really, and you have the audacity to call yourself a burger joint? The "Cowboy Burger" I had probably would have been good if the actual hamburger itself wasn't awful. The service was pretty blah. I sat at the bar, and after he rung me up, so did the bartender/waiter. Pretty weak. I'll never go back to this place, and I would recommend that no one else go there either.

First, the food here is excellent. My wife and I went to Chiso for dinner on Friday and we had these fantasticly seasoned chicken wings for an appetizer, and a variety of rolls for our entree. All of the rolls were "melt in your mouth" good. Just plain excellent food. Now, on to the disappointment. We were seated pretty promptly in about a half full restaurant at the time. We then waited for about 10-15 minutes before a server even came to our table. This same server, however, was plunking down food on the tables to either side of us during this time. There was not even a "I'll be with you in a moment". Just crickets. We were just about to get up and leave when the server finally came by. We placed our order for the appetizer, rolls and drinks, which were all brought out in a timely manner. We never did see the server again until we were actually done with the meal. There was no check back, no "would you like another drink", nothing. Thankfully, the there were no issues with the food. Though the service was really substandard, I would still recommend people go to Chiso. I would hope that all their servers don't completely suck.

Luce has been a goto spot for my friends and I for a long time. They've got a good selection of beer on tap and a decent selection of other libations. The food has always been very good here, and on the rare occasion that a mistake is made, they ALWAYS go out of their way to fix it. For example, last night my wife and I went there to grab some late dinner. Her lasagna was burnt, but they apologized, made a new one immediately, *and* comped the item. In my opinion, that is the definition of a good restaurant. Everyone makes mistakes, but it's how those mistakes are handled that means the most. As far as the food goes, I would say that it's really good for the price. It's not gourmet, but it's well done. The vast majority of the items are made in house and it shows in the distinctive flavors and quality. The pizza and wings here are a couple of my favorites. Although I'm not a "veg", they do have some really good "veg" options here for just about everything. I would highly recommend any of the Luce locations.
