I just joined the red faction and I don't really know which communities I should be in now.

Hope everyone had a fun April Fools Day!

+CNN announces that they're out of touch with the tech industry.
Congrats T-Mobile! Uncarrier FTW.
CNNMoney says T-Mobile is the tech company of the year, primarily based on its "un-carrier" moves.

Wow! I cancelled my +T-Mobile service since I switched to Cricket and I received a call from a collection agency the next day for the balance!!!

Yeah...part of why I left was that it was getting so lean it was all work and no play, but it remains the most process-centric shop I've seen, and many IT folks still there are a mixture of happy and "meh".

I'd kill for a process-centric shop with a company-wide view like we had at T-Mo.  Thing is that successful ongoing processes require headcount, and running a too-lean shop is the kind of problem that leads to the problem Joe is having.

Interesting that you jumped to Cricket.  Gonna have to check it out, though it'd be hard to break my 10GB habit.

Pick up some swag for your favorite Ingress player as a stocking stuffer and help someone out at the same time.
Gris Gris Ingress Cancer Auction
For those of you who know him, +Mischa Krilov  is an incredible agent from the New Orleans Blue Voodoo team. He's been recently diagnosed with Stage IV cancer... at 39 and with kids. +Cade Roux  broached the subject of a benefit auction, and after a two weeks of accepting an incredible number of donations from around the world, we are auctioning off what is likely the single most complete ingress collection (excluding Niantic-produced swag) on Mischa's behalf.

For those not wanting to participate in the auction but wanting to help, donations will be accepted
By Google Wallet or PayPal directly at Preferred)

The auction is broken up into several categories - each a separate auction.
They are listed for 10 days on eBay and have been converted to normal no-reserve auctions (people were confused by the silent auction format).

International Bidders
eBay is misbehaving - if it won't let you select your country, select US with ZipCode 39581, and we can arrange shipping via hangouts or private G+ post (shipping cost is covered in the auction).

The auctions are here:
Challenge Coins:
Shirts and Clothing:
Stickers and Papers:
Pins and Buttons:

A couple notes:
1) Niantic-produced swag is NOT included in the auction unless it is available for purchase from Niantic directly; if it looks like a Niantic item - it's either a reproduction or something that's publicly available through the google store/welovefine, etc.
2) I've already spoken with +Joe Philley, who thinks this is acceptable per TOS.
3) Nothing included has an existing agent name on it (though several items will be customized for the winner post-auction).
4) Some donated items have not yet arrived and are noted in the auctions and images; we fully expect that these items will arrive and offer them in good faith, but can't be held responsible for items that we don't receive; we will comment on auctions as pending items arrive.

I find it very frustrating that HIPPA treats email as this huge threat to privacy, but allows unencrypted snail-mail.

I've had my mailbox robbed way more than I've had my email snooped, and there are pretty simple ways of communicating via email securely if they would put forth even a little effort.

Dear fellow men, since it is clear some of you haven't been told, I would like to share one of the finer points of public restroom etiquette:

It is considered gauche to spray urine on any surface in the room, even if that surface is in the same general direction as bowl.

Further, a gentleman, if unable to cope with cleaning up his own spray after painting the walls or sink or whichever innocent surface he strikes during a fit of spasms that occurs while relieving himself, at least notifies the staff of the mess while cowering behind the lie that he "just found the mess;" this expedites the process of having some innocent worker clean up the infantile mess left behind so another person may use the restroom.

Thanks from all those who will follow you in the W.C.

During our initial cleaning, they ripped our screw-in stopper out of our kitchen sink. After consulting their handiman, he claimed that it was "old and probably ready to go in the first place" so they offered to split the cost of repairs. Considering the amount of money they're expecting to get paid every month, this would have been a very cheap issue to just take care of. Instead, when I gave them the opportunity of repairing the problem or cancelling our service, they chose the latter. Their cleaning wasn't worth the price they were charging anyway. There was still dust on top shelves, cobweb left dangling from the ceiling, dust bunnies collecting under the sofa (and there's plenty of room under the sofa to clean), only the front side of lampshades were dusted, things moved around and left in places other than where we want them, decorations moved, rotated, placed on their sides, etc. I will be trying another service.

There are two kinds of coffee snobs. One that believes that there are different tastes and that good quality roasters can produce varied flavors. Many believe that the full bodied flavor of a medium roast is generally superior to a dark roast, but allows for the fact that some people like dark roasts. The other is the kind that believes that their way is the only "right" way. This is the point-of-view I received at Ritual Coffee Roasters. I know that I like a 16oz Mocha Breve with 2 shots of medium roast espresso. They believe that I'm ruining the flavor of the coffee with an excessive ratio of milk to coffee. I was actually a little hungry and wanted a 20oz triple. I was scoffed at. Their biggest cup size is 12oz.

The view is cute overlooking the harbor, fishing docks and boats with nice big windows. The live jazz enjoyable without overpowering our conversation. The wait staff friendly but inattentive. The filet mignon cuts are inconsistent, my wife's had a gritty texture and was over cooked, no pink at all for a medium-rare order and mine had a too-long-in-the-fridge taste to part of it. The whole thing was smothered in an overpowering mushroom sauce disguising the mediocrity of the beef. The lobster was properly cooked and flavorful. The chopped spinach as well. All in all it was a pleasant dinner, but could have been much better.

Ordered on Feb 5th. Received a USPS tracking number on the 6th in an email which states that I "should expect delivery in 2 to 5 business days." It's now the 15th and not only has my product not been delivered, but the USPS hasn't yet received the package for that tracking number. I would suggest finding some reputable company.
