The rare East Texas Swimming Hole.
It is not every lake that is owned by a school District. Being owned and run by teachers isn't the only unusual thing about this swimming hole. Lake Tejas is also a spring fed lake, but isn't clear. The color would be clear except for an unusual brown picked up from the tannins of the pine ...

I spent a LOT of time here the last year of high school.  Great rope swing and fun jumping out of tall trees.
The upper stretches of the Guadlupe river are some of the most beautiful swimming holes in Texas. Most of the river is privately owned and you either have to rent a cabin or know somebody. However, Hunt Crossing is open to the public. It is located a short drive west of Kerrville and a short ...

Swimming holes in Texas are very popular, and many of them can fill up on a Saturday to the point they turn away cars. Blue Hole is no exception to that rule. The parking lots get full, the sunbathing field gets covered in picnic blankets, the cool water has a lot of heads, the rope swings ...

“I've never been there” -Lifetime Georgetown Resident. There are many great mysteries in life, and why on a Saturday afternoon in the middle of summer Blue Hole will have only ten or fifteen people in it ranks as a real brain teaser. The parking is close. The entrance is free.

USB is going to finally live up to the Universal part.  With the Type-C connector using Superspeed 3.1 you get 10Gbps, 100W of power, PCI-e, display port, and a reversable plug.  It will replace all the other ports.  Now it will just be USB ports.

The Guadalupe River above Canyon lake is a beautiful thing. Lined with Cypress trees and refreshing water. Guadalupe River State Park is indeed beautiful. It is also too conveniently close to San Antonio and thus It is also a study in how to fit a massive amount of people into a quarter mile ...

With today's macbook announcement I am proven correct.  One usb plug, nothing else. https://plus.google.com/106707929004244096953/posts/FBF7Tyk4g1f

Even their target market would probably like to use a standard USB key or printer without yet-another-cable. 

I guess it goes nicely to a docking station, if you want to lug one around

Best Rope Swing In Texas!
Christoval is unique among swimming holes in Texas. To start with it is in West Texas, a part of the world known for friendly people and dry land, not a part of the world not known for swimming holes. It almost seems unfair to start with the West Texas friendliness and also add some giant ...

git merge remotename/branchname
