This is the first good news I've read in a while.
 
Bloom County is BACK, folks!

Best news I've heard all day. Breathed's strip was the first comic I ever really, truly loved. It was witty, insightful, and hilarious, with truly amazing character development. It was so deep for only being 2D.

I still have my stuffed Opus. May have to break that out from storage.
The cartoonist won a Pulitzer Prize for his work on Bloom County in 1987; two years later, he quit producing it.

This isn't a good sign if you're a member of the Save the Manuals club.  As BMW goes, so goes everyone else.  
BMW might be abandoning manual transmissions for its M models, and the division could cap power outputs to 600 hp.

So much love for this.  I imagine this is what the Cocteau Twins would have sounded like with an avalanche of guitar noise behind them.  Gotta love the video too.

If you use Google Voice, go fill out their survey and tell them what you like and don't like about it. For me, this means keeping Hangouts from becoming the dumping ground for everything in their latest attempt at services unification.

Reposting this and tagging +Motorola Mobility  because 1) they asked in a post (https://goo.gl/iiGZHk) what we'd engrave on our phones and 2) because they need to quit dicking around with the Android 5.1 updates.  Especially on the "Pure Edition" unlocked phones that I and others bought, mistakenly thinking that they would get updated faster than the bloated and bastardized carrier versions that are available.  FFS, you've been "soak testing" 5.1 since what, March of this year?  My 2½ year old Nexus 4, which I replaced with this new 2nd gen Moto X, has been running 5.1 since March.  I realize that I was dumb enough to buy a 2nd Gen Moto X "Pure Edition" that came pre-loaded with 5.0 -- even after living through the fun of using 5.0 on the N4 -- but I didn't think it'd be on the Moto X much longer than my first boot and system update check.  But it's still there, at 5.0, along with all of the 5.0 bugs that have been known for a while.

Get your shit together, Motorola.  Your unlocked, "Pure Edition" should actually have the benefit of faster, easier updates.  Otherwise, it's no different than a carrier edition.

+Ethan Chua It's a reference to a parody VMS (and then AT&T) customer service memorandum:

VMS:  http://goo.gl/bnZlCz 
AT&T Unix:  http://goo.gl/l5hE3H

+Darrell Shannon I didn't expect Motorola to have the update schedule or speed that I got with any of my Nexus phones, but I expected it to be much better than any of the carrier versions.  My wife's 1st gen Moto X is what convinced me to look at the 2nd gen model.  Hers was a Verizon version, but 4.4.x on her phone looked as bone stock as on my Nexus.  So when they say "Pure Edition", I take that to mean 'pretty damn close to stock Android'.  Especially since they were able to do this on a Verizon branded phone.  And it shouldn't take 6 months to get an update.

Thanks #Obamacare
GALLATIN, TN—Saying he will just have to trust that the new organ he receives is as good as the other options out there, local man Keith Palmero confirmed Tuesday that his insurance provider would only cover a generic heart for his upcoming transplant surgery.

It's a good example of why 90s music was so much better than 80s music.

Well, lookee here.  I guess I was late to the bitching party about the "Pure Edition" updates. But having used 5.0 before, I don't have any patience for using it again.

So thanks for the update of sorts, +Motorola Mobility.  It makes me glad I grabbed a recent 5.1 OTA file and loaded it myself.  
Android 5.0 and 5.1 OTA's have been some of the slowest updates in recent memory. With tons of delays, and some manufacturers deciding not to upgrade to th

Introduction
[Standard personal introduction cliches go here.]

If you've gone to the trouble to pull my profile and read this far, you already know that I don't post much -- I prefer to comment on other's posts.  So it's safe to file me into one of your circles, I'll likely amount to 0.1% of your stream content.  The things I might post about are, but not limited to, the stuff below:

* All things tech, with an emphasis on VoIP and Linux.  I like my new Nexus 4 and run CM9 on an HP Touchpad I picked up during an HP firesale, but I am *not* a fan of small mobile / tablets for daily usage -- I have to have a real keyboard.  Typing on a glass surface, especially a small one, is something I'll likely never get used to. I fought on the losing side of the OS wars of the mid-90s (OS/2 vs. Windows), that was enough for me.  If you don't know what I'm talking about, it's OK, I'm old.  If you do know what I'm talking about, you'll understand more of my smartass comments in the frequent Android vs. iOS threads.

* Politics.  I believe that good government is possible and very necessary. I own more than one gun, have a CCW permit and am absolutely for much stricter regulation of all firearms.  I'm also not at all tolerant of the not-so-literate folks who showed up to wave misspelled signs and protest government spending or taxes or states' rights or whatever immediately after Obama was elected.  

* Music.  I grew up listening to 80s music, which is very possibly the worst era for music since prehistoric humans were doing covers of Freebird and Brown Eyed Girl.  There were a few exceptions, those bands make for some good discussions.  Thankfully, the 90s redeemed music in general, the 00s didn't do too much damage and the '10s have been, so far, pretty OK.  Except for dubstep, which is the only musical genre that makes me wish for the permanent hearing loss I should already have from concerts in the 90s.  Seriously, who thought it was a good idea to record robots raping one another with dental equipment?

* Sports.  Primarily baseball, but still haven't completely gotten over the '94 strike.  Mainly because my awesome and budget-poor Expos were so far ahead in first place and then, one day in August, the season was over.  I do follow football (pro and college) and hockey, but only because it amuses me that there is pro hockey in Florida and Texas.

This location was recommended by a co-worker, but I couldn't get into the location to try it. Note to the manager: Parking and drying cars on the west side of the building, blocking all access to customers who enter from the east-bound lanes of Forest (left turn into the location), is a good way to lose business.
