Hey +A Play On Nerds , Google PlusGoogling you a Plus: I'm only one episode behind, and wanted to share one of my favorite Middle Ages fact that is relevant to an offhand bit at the beginning of episode 30: in the Middle Ages, once you got to adulthood, you were generally good until you were 60 or so, and 70 or even 80 wasn't unheard of.

The average age was indeed 35 or so, but that's mostly because lots of people died as babies or before they got to adulthood - perhaps as much as 40%, bringing the "average" age down, and hiding all the old people.  Math!

Some photos from the show last night...it was completely fantasic.  OK Go knows how to put on a mindblowing show for their fans, and it was completely delightful.

They're tearing down an old (presumably unsafe) play structure by my house, and the kids at the school next door wrote goodbye notes all over it.  Some heartbreakers in there.

I switched to Slackware for my daily driver almost by accident a couple months back, and I've been loving it.  Just posted a rundown of what my experience has been so far.

I always enjoyed slackware - like the "less hands off" approach!

I like how this guy thinks.  I've been following his blog for a bit, and use NimbleText now and then.

So I actually got around to organizing the pictures from our St. Helens climb.  It was quite the trip, and probably the most physically exhausting thing I've ever done, but it was a blast.  The whole family made it up, which was super impressive - way to go, Mom and Dad!  I think my brothers and I are gonna have to do it again sometime - maybe next summer, after we've had sufficient time to recover.

I love layout - it's like a puzzle, and I love puzzles.  And I use this for etching: http://www.instructables.com/id/Stop-using-Ferric-Chloride-etchant!--A-better-etc/

Which in theory you can regenerate, but I haven't quite gotten it to work well yet.  Still need to pick up an air bubbler somewhere.

There's nothing like etching your own board for quick, cheap turnaround for some basic smoketesting.  I've already discovered two issues with this board that I need to fix before sending it off to be made for real.

Going through the Wikipedia list of Google's hoaxes...the #zergrush one is pretty awesome.
