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.

The absolute worst "feature" of Android #Lollipop has to be moving the browser tabs (on the phone) out from the context of the browser into the overall "Recent Apps". This basically makes finding a previously used tab impossible. I'd like to find the person responsible for this horrible idea and slap them with a large fish. Just plain stupid.

Hehe, yeah, it was totally my fault.  I think I got the update while at work and just basically clicked through because I needed to do something at the time.

This is pretty great. A recommended read
 
Okay, so yes, I just joined the community. I have been a Linux user since I was able to master it and the hardware sufficiently to cooperate, back in the late 1990s. I was a young man in my early 20s, and fascinated by the total regression into adolescence that I witnessed in a group of older men whom I knew, who worked at IBM, as they stood around a CRT monitor together in their off hours, and watched as they installed the Red Hat Linux system on their hardware, which was of course uncovered, with ribbons and components strewn about a big, kitchen table. I didn't get it, then. I didn't know enough to understand what I was seeing, then. At 43, I now understand. I would like to keep on contributing to the cause, and so I wrote up a timeline, describing the origins of Unix/Linux. 

I pulled this information together from sources I considered authoritative, but if there are any factual errors in this piece, I would, of course, like to correct them.

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.

Interesting read. This isn't something I had really thought about before, but it makes a lot of sense after giving it some thought.
 
The "nocebo effect" is like the placebo effect, except in reverse. Whereas placebos trick people into feeling better, "nocebos" are things that make people feel worse, even though they don't really exist. They can even kill people! Here's how we can trick ourselves into dying, and how doctors may have found a cure.

This is a fantastic collection of quotes (with links to the original articles) surrounding all the BS related to audiophile myths.

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.
