The amount of wasted space in the new Google Now launcher card view is out of control. More cards, less noise please.

Last month Elizabeth and I headed to Brickworld here in Tampa and helped run the Great Ball Contraption - a collection of LEGO machines that move balls around in interesting ways. +Brick Buddies basically spent the day keeping 30 or so Rube Goldberg style LEGO contraptions working. Exhausting but pretty neat to see.

It'll be interesting if different libraries start checking out devices like Chromebooks. I've checked out books that cost more, especially in college. 
 
The Chromebook Lending Library is coming to campus!

Chromebooks are college-bound. Borrow a Chromebook at the Lending Library to use for a few days on campus. #ChromebookforCollege

The final statewide rankings for FIRST Tech Challenge came out today and +Brick Buddies is the #2 team in the state heading into next month's state championship. Really proud of all the hard work the kids put in and how their years of FIRST experience have shaped them.

Nice AutoAwesome story from a build meeting with +teambrickbuddies a few weeks ago. They're +Elizabeth Adair's FIRST Tech Challenge team.

They're Tetrix, which is pretty similar to Actobotics but Actobotics adds a lot more mounting holes and is a little cheaper. 

They're pretty handy for building things with somewhat flexible spacing and that can be built with 90 or 45 degree joints but once you need any unusual geometry, you usually end up cutting and drilling. Then you shed a tear over watching the kids cut up $10-20 pieces of aluminum U-channel.

Great service. Sure there are some areas where they don't have the selection or prices of the big orange or blue stores, but there are areas where they blow them away. The staff is always friendly and helpful without being annoying. The fastener selection is especially good. Love seeing them support Girl Scout troops and other groups too.

I thought it was pretty good but not as fantastic as a lot of people tell me it is. Coke Freestyle machines are still neat but they back up with people waiting. They also run out of syrups way too often. Men's room was kind of a mess and no paper towels.

[Note: currently (Jan 2016) partially closed due to flooding - check website or call] Pretty nice little nature-oriented park. A good loop hike around the lake with mostly shaded trail. A great place to give geocaching a try too. It isn't a built-up park with a lot amenities.

Pizza and beer is good, but yeah the staff is a little slow to get orders, check on drinks, etc.

They wanted $700+ to do a ton of brake work on a 2 year old Caravan. They tried to keep us from leaving because it was "unsafe", but we got out of there and took it to another shop where they just did new pads and it was fine for years. Never again.

I guess there is new management? The drive through has always been acceptable, for a Burger King. A lot less friendly and more mistakes than places like Chic-fil-A or McDonalds. But the last few visits they've been okay. I haven't been inside lately but when I did before it was a nonstop train wreck with the manager (maybe now the ex-manager?) In 15 minutes I heard all kinds of arguments and trash-talking about the employees and drive-through customers.

Above average GameStop. Employees are helpful. Deals can be a little weak but that's GameStop.
