Looking for traveling songs. Songs about traveling, or destinations, cities, states, or other places. Ready, set, go!

Dynaflow: https://play.google.com/music/m/T22gtlvoyladb3zfpmnap34xoam?t=Dynaflow_-_The_Brass_Kings

Not about travel specifically, but nostalgia for the romance of car culture in the 40s and 50's...

There's a busted Buick on the side of the road
with $300 worth of antique chrome
green patina on rusted bones
and silver letters spelling Dynaflow...

Yuck. This is disturbing.
 
California's gang database is a nightmare for civil liberties and an embarrassment to police. Tell your legislators to pass A.B. 2298.
CalGang is a joke. California’s gang database contains data on more than 200,000 people that police believe are associated with gangs, often based on the flimsiest of evidence. Law enforcement officials would have you believe that it’s crucial to their jobs, that they use it ever so responsibly, and that it would never, ever result in unequal treatment of people of color.

Why is #cake trending on G+? Apparently because this business posted this about a bajillion times.

I wonder if this will make a noticeable difference in battery life for 5x users.
 
Working on FK for the Nexus 5X's Nougat release and noticed three things:

1 - default I/O scheduler is now noop
2 - new cpuset core configuration at the platform level. There's a new "top_apps" node and cpu3 will be used exclusively for the top_app

# update foreground cpuset now that processors are up
# foreground gets all CPUs except CPU 3
# CPU 3 is reserved for the top app
write /dev/cpuset/foreground/cpus 0-2,4-5
write /dev/cpuset/foreground/boost/cpus 4-5
write /dev/cpuset/background/cpus 0
write /dev/cpuset/system-background/cpus 0-2
write /dev/cpuset/top-app/cpus 0-5

I wonder why cpu3 for the top app and not a core from the high perf cluster.

3 - new power profile measurements which shows radio scanning for signal consumes WAY less power than before. ~90% reduction!

Nougat's new active Doze mode already makes a big difference, too

I agree completely, and unapologetically with +Chris Knutson​, this is the best way to keep an open source browser relevant.
 
Coming September: Firefox 49 for Linux Will Let You Watch Netflix Without Plugins http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2016/08/firefox-49-linux-netflix-google-widevine-cdm
Firefox is to begin supporting the Google Widevine CDM on Linux from next month, allowing native, plugin-free playback of encrypted media content like Netflix.

Every block equates to an hour of learning, which could be from an institution, or awarded based on experience at an employer. Employers can search the chain for recruits based on learning/ experience, the line between which begins to blur. 
The technology behind bitcoin could help create a new way to measure education.

Yeah, those are pretty obvious questions. I think this is mostly hypothetically, currently.

Hypervigilance takes its toll. I think this has relevance in a lot of areas. Our leaders making us think we live in a constant threat of terrorism, the psychological impact on overdeployed soldiers, decision making of police officers, but also people of less privilege, who have to live in fear of things that more privileged folk can more easily weather.

Still not as good as a password manager with a random password generator, but if you still resist using one, this might be a good way to go. Bonus, playing with dice to generate your passphrase.
 
Random passphrases offer a major security upgrade over user-chosen passwords. EFF's Joe Bonneau explains why.
Joe Bonneau dives deep into the systems using dice to generate random passphrases and introduces EFF's three new word lists.

Yeah, original I misread out, thought you multiplied the dice, not used the sequence.

With 5 days left, I'm $40 away from hitting my fundraising goal for St Jude and the Warrior Dash. $500 is enough to provide a child with one day of Oxygen, which is key to keeping the immune system strong. A gift of oxygen can help a young body thrive and help fight cancer at the cellular level.
(Stretch goal of $600 to make me wear armor to the Warrior Dash).
Thanks for all your help so far!

Let me noodle on it.
Introduction
I love disruptive technology, not just what's hot, but that which is truly revolutionary.  That is left intentionally broad-brushed.  Technology should make our jobs easier, our efforts more effective, and give us more time to enjoy life.  So I post publicly about technology, privacy, and the occasional red herring.

I work with storage, mobile, and "cloud", and tend not to dwell on one thing too much when something better comes along.
Bragging rights
I can walk, talk, and chew gum, but not text and drive.

This Dunn Bros charges 40% more than the other ones I frequent, and the service is not as good. They consistently fail to leave room in the cup when asked.

Walk in the door, and they'll help you find whatever you need. Quick, easy, and a better value than big box hardware stores.

Rude! They don't seem to want walk-in business. Go elsewhere.
