I brushed off enough so I can see out of the windows. That's fine, right?

That's a fantastic name for a law!

(I was kidding, of course, I brushed the snow off)

Trying out NILS+ and things got weird. Is there a way to run just NILS+?

For music controls on the lockscreen. The stock android widget is ugly. Also for download progress etc. Those kind of notifications don't work in NiLS+.

What do you think of this, +Koushik Dutta ? So much for fair competition, another developer gets to release before the rest of you get a green light.

Cool.
 
Dude, there's my phone! Android Device Manager is now available at www.android.com/devicemanager. It’s a new service that makes it easy to locate a misplaced device.

Just found the first of probably many things missing from the DriveAPI that are in the Documents API that is deprecated. Leave it to Google to deprecate an API before the replacement actually replaces it!

You can't get the email addresses of who modified a file anymore, just the "Display Name". That's going to make it really hard to map that back to actual users.

So far though, I am liking this API MUCH more than v1. It's very straightforward and the types are much better structured. My code might actually be readable! #java   #google   #mysteryhunt

Nope. I found that on stack exchange as an answer provided by a Google person. It seemed like a "currently no" kind of thing, not a "we won't"

I have $9 in Google Play credits that are going to expire in a few days. Suggestions for apps to buy?

I bought OSMand and the topo plugin. It was incredibly useful in Switzerland and London to have such detailed offline maps, so now I have maps of whatever I want!

I guess the calm and relaxing commute on the bike path wasn't going to last forever. I got yelled "fuck you ya queer" by a douchebag in a pickup truck in Lexington Center

The remainder of my ride to work was fueled by rage. But I did finally figure out the misunderstanding that got him so fired up that he felt he had to to resort to homophobic insults circa 1985.

I was maybe 30ft behind another cyclist when I got to the first road crossing of lex center (Woburn st). The cyclist in front of me just blew right through. I rolled my eyes and then stopped at the intersection, unclipped a pedal and waited for the cars to go by. the pickup truck continued like he was going to pass, but then began stopping to let me go. Shit, I hate when people stop for me. I rushed to get across the street before I wasted too much of his time.

He yelled something at me I couldn't quite understand, and I yelled back "wtf, you stopped!", at which point he yelled "fuck you, ya queer" and something about fighting about it and pulled the truck over.

I think in his mind, he didn't slow down to let me go - he slowed down because he thought I was going to dart out in front of him, and he didn't want to hit me. And then BECAUSE he slowed down, I did exactly that. Here's a message to everybody out there, cars, bikes, whatever: TELEGRAPH YOUR INTENTIONS! I can't read your fucking mind, I can only guess what you're doing by your actions. If you are slowing down it looks like you're stopping, so don't be so surprised when the other people on the road think that.

Unfortunately, now there's a driver out there that has confirmed his belief that bikers will just dart out in front of him and has no idea that he was the one that triggered it.

Also, fuck people who think it's ok to yell things like that. Call me an asshole if you want, but leave that homophobic shit at home.
