This is a great example of why #3dmodels  of #publicdomain  artwork in all museums, institutions and art galleries should be freely released. It allows anyone to interact with an otherwise fragile or priceless sculpture or artifact.

I was initially excited about the unlimited storage for $60/year at #AmazonCloudDrive but tonight I canceled it.

The price was right, there was no arguing with that, but the insistence by #Amazon that I had to use their painfully awful software to upload or download anything to my cloud storage was too much.

I'd actively reached out to various software and app support pages asking if they were going to support Amazon Cloud Drive like #Dropbox or any number of other #cloudstorage was? Sadly, the answer was either "No." or a variation on something like "We have removed support for Amazon Cloud Drive at Amazon's request."

Not a smart move Amazon, at least if you're interested in taking on the other cloud storage players. Right now, I'd rather spend more money for less storage but with greater transparency, ease and control than what you have chosen to implement.

I'll still shop from time to time with Amazon, but I'll be less inclined to jump on future services if they start being overly zealous about how I can use the services.

Ha! #Karma is a bitch, isn't it #Comcast? Here's hoping #Verizon, #AT&T and other ISPs sat up and figured out they can't treat consumers with so much contempt.

Ten years ago today was the start of my life after #HIV . The fact that it was the 99th anniversary of the #1906SanFranciscoEarthquake  was a powerful irony but a metaphor of sorts too. We both took a beating but we both are making strides towards finding a way to live with our inner demons. This short, visually lush film speaks to me and I can't help but share it today especially. While I'll never be cured, I will at least find a compromise that lets me have a long life where it ends up just being a label, just like being bald, male, blue-eyed, etc. #HappyAnniversary to both #SanFrancisco & myself. Here's to many more years before the next catastrophe.

I can't wait for this to come out. This title was one of Agatha Christie's best works and kept me guessing all the way to the end. I think the film adaptation I've seen that seems most faithful to it is the 1987 Soviet (Russian) production Desyat' negrityat (Десять негритят, Eng: "Ten Little Negroes"). Look around here, I've seen it pop up from time to time. Great atmosphere, good acting, excellent sets. Here's hoping the BBC adaptation is up to the challenge.

+Matthew Trumbo Wouldn't this be a slick visual for power-cycling a device?!
 
I spotted this concept of a material design lock screen on dribble. Something similar would be a nice concept for a power menu.

I've always had a soft spot for stand-out items that still perform well. But, then again, I grew up in the 1980s so make what you will of my opinion.

I think the K-01 is a great-looking device with some powerful imaging possibilities within it. I've been a Nikon user for years but the prices of their glass and cameras was killing my shoestring budget. I started looking around and remembered being urged to look at Pentax. After a little research, I found the K-01 and was smitten.

I may well be in the minority that thinks it is actually a very capable and attractive camera, but the advantage of being able to use so much Pentax glass on a discounted camera unloved by so many is irresistible.

Good. #Comcast  is the poster child for #monopoly . Comcast, #Verizon , #ATandT  and other giant cellular and #ISP  providers should be broken apart like Ma Bell was in the 1980s. Their opposition to #NetNeutrality  makes it clear that they don't have any compelling reason to do anything other than bully and gouge consumers.

I never realized just how close my scathing conclusion about #Christianity  being founded by a tiny group of opinionated, self-loathing, #misogynistic , #homophobic , judgmental, #art & #education -hating men actually was. They took the basic tenets of what #JesusChrist  taught, cherry-picked what they wanted to keep and tried to disregard or suppress the remainder since it wouldn't support their narrow-minded, hateful views. I can't help but look back in #history  and see the parallels between early Christians and the current problem with radical Christians or worse yet, #ISIS . Talk about #irony . #hypocrisy

I choose home life to the nightlife
Introduction
I'm a youngish middle-aged bear who has found increasingly that I prefers staying home to at the same couple of local gay watering holes. I was always the odd-man out when it came to what interested me and I've stopped trying to find a connection where none existed.

I'm a history and art buff. I try to watch all the documentaries I can get my hands on and I read as much as possible. I also enjoy SciFi and humor now and then. One of my favorite genre's is horror, not the slasher-porn stuff but more like the tension-filled stuff from overseas.

I love photography. I've been expanding my love of photography with 3D modeling in the last year. I'm becoming somewhat good at it but I have a long ways to go as I'm completely self taught.

I am single. I've been looking here and there online but haven't seen or met any men that have the right magic or chemistry. The majority of guys online are looking for one thing and while that's great, I find that it's not as satisfying for me as it used to be. I'd rather sitting nude on the couch with a bowl of popcorn and good documentary than having some slippery, kinky encounter (but that is only if I'm not with the right guy -- then I reserve the right to change my mind).

I found that for a small town it is fairly good-sized as flea markets go. There is a lot of trash and treasures (what is what is up to each persons interpretation) mixed together all over the place. The Four Seasons Flea Market occupies what must be at least two former storefronts plus the whole basement under them. There is a lot of stuff to comb through and pick around. It is a surprisingly clean place considering all the merchandise. The prices are about what I would have expected around the area. Don't expect to come here and find the Mona Lisa for a song--what you'd expect to pay in larger towns and other communities applies here too. After all, this is a business and the days of nickel & dime prices for places like this are a distant memory for even the most die-hard optimists. The prices seemed a bit high on some things but not bad on others. The lady at the register was willing to barter a little on some items depending on who was selling them. I'd say that as long as you come to the Four Seasons Flea Market with a realistic set of expectations, you shouldn't leave disappointed. I myself will be returning a few more times as I saw plenty of nice collectibles hiding on the shelves.

On a lark, I dropped in on Olivia's mid-afternoon today to sightsee and shop a little if anything caught my interest. The staff was quite pleasant and didn't have the attitude of a person wishing they could work anywhere else. They were professional, discretely inquiring if there was anything in particular I was looking for, then left me alone to wander at my leisure. They never made me feel uncomfortable when I settled on my purchase and didn't try to push unnecessary extras. I think I was more nervous about the other gentlemen than anything else but as the custom, nobody approached anyone else unless they'd walked in together, joking about visiting Olivia's. Aside from being exiled to a small industrial park on the eastern outskirts of Tea and having shorter business hours than many gas stations (not their fault -- you can blame uptight city and county officials under pressure from know-it-all religious conservatives) there is nothing to dislike about Olivia's. Word of advice: if you park at the back of the building but are not coming in for the theaters, you need to come around to the front door. The back door is strictly for the theaters.

Not impressed. Dyson has a strict policy about acceptable practices and requiring a $60 "deposit" before Fonder will even look at my vacuum while under warranty isn't one of them. My Dyson had been to Fonder just four weeks before today and the repair man made a point of emphasizing that he'd cleaned the filters and vacuum before letting me pick it up. As it turns out, no he didn't. When I showed up today to drop off my Dyson for service again, that's when Fonder tried to spring the $60 deposit requirement on me. I walked out with my vacuum and contacted Dyson who quickly sent me to another business. I will never take any of my business to Fonder when it comes to Dyson and if you read this, just beware of their sneaky double-dipping policy.

Fawick Park is one of those overlooked gems that everyone drives by. It sits between two viaducts going in and out of downtown Sioux Falls so the rumble of traffic fades and rises constantly. If you don't know exactly where to look and fail to ask a local, it's easy to miss. Once you do find it, parking is on the street but make sure you feed the hungry meters. There is a full-sized cast of Michelangelo's "David" with no fig leaf, just the way the original was made. David has been a presence in downtown Sioux Falls since the early 1970s when he was placed here and had a virtual jungle planted around him for the sake of conservative decency. Eventually the jungle gave way but not so much because opinion had changed as it was found that Fawick Park had been the former site of a coal gasification plant that left a toxic legacy. The entire park had to be literally dug out and hauled away. The park was eventually rebuilt but with David turned to look towards the West and downtown and moved closer to the street since his old spot was now in a floodplain. In spite of the traffic noise, Fawick Park is a pleasant enough park but just be aware that a few people hanging around the park tend to make photographers uncomfortable at times even when they are plainly shooting the replica of David.

You can't beat the price for gently used furniture. Granted some of it looks a little dated, but it isn't anything that a little paint could fix.
