/r/kerbalspaceprogram just went dark on reddit. For such a small sub, I'm rather annoyed they believe that joining a mob movement is more important than respecting the users of a game with a rather difficult learning curve.

If they come back up, I'm not sure I'll be rejoining.

I love reddit, but this is pretty immature on both sides.

Computers: Just a neverending list of mini-Y2Ks. Heck, the leap second got pretty dramatic even.

Jake misses the bigger picture here, which is that copyrighted APIs are a gigantic mess for the software development world. Open source projects in particular, who can't afford the license (or lawyers to argue that it's fair use) fees for using APIs are at immediate risk.
 
RIP Android?
The Supreme Court denied a Google Inc. appeal that sought to stop a billion-dollar Oracle Corp. lawsuit by seeking limits on software copyright protections.

I'm just going to enjoy watching all the startups burn. :) Dog chasing cars and such.

I'm cautiously optimistic about this one. The show feels like Firefly in everything but the characters and plot, and in that respect it's a bit more like Cowboy Bebop (if you haven't seeing either of these shows, drop what you're doing right now and go watch, they're only 1 season each).

Compared to Syfy's other space opera show right now, Dark Matter, Killjoys immediately jumps into the world and doesn't sit down to explain every last thing to the viewer. I highly appreciate this approach, I like shows that treat their viewers as intelligent people who can follow along with a basic show, and it allows the showrunners to develop a much deeper and more lush universe with all the time that other shows take to hold your hand.

The action can be a bit overly gratuitous (what action these days isn't?) and the show hits on several sci-fi tropes that are getting kinda tired, but hey, when was the last time we had a good space opera on TV?
SyFy’s latest space opera, Killjoys, began last night, and over the course of the first episode, and there’s an entire season’s worth of material packed into forty minutes. Clearly, we’re in for a treat with this show.

Great show.  I like it.  I also like Dark Matter too, who in the surface looks similar but inside is dramatically different.  More power to gritty space operas.

This really makes me appreciate the complexity of this task. Also, that camera tracking, I don't think I could follow an object falling at a few hundred meters per second like that.
 
Surprisngly nimble for something that's taller than many buildings.

So they won't throttle until they throttle. Nice legal maneuvering there, T-Mobile.

No, the book called it doublethink. Just HOW many fingers do you think you see?

It's about time Microsoft adds in some senseless features to the next version of Windows. I was getting worried this one would be pain free.

Interesting. I need to keep this on my radar.
 
Back in January we first learned about the Jade Ultra Remix tablet, a new Android device designed with productivity in mind. Shortly after this, the startup launched a Kickstarter campaign pricing the Tegra 4-powered device at just $39. The catch was that early backers would get a significant discount over the final retail price in exchange for helping test out the new device and its custom Android OS. Fast-forwarding to today, Jade is now pre...

I'd be more interested in seeing it on something NUC-ish, myself. This is nice, but throwing it at something with pricier specs could be awfully cool.

Story
Introduction
I'd like to fashion myself as a purveyor of fine things. I enjoy using the latest and greatest in technology. My standards for music are high, and include a decent interest among Christian Contemporary artists, Rock & Roll, and classical/instrumental music. I love to watch movies with a well-developed story and relate-able characters, even if the filming itself isn't the greatest. My reading tastes cover mostly fantasy and science-fiction, and within that spectrum stories that make me regret putting down or finishing the book, because I might be separated from well-written characters. I love to write, and hold myself to the same standards that I do my authors and movie writers. When I write in the physical realm, I enjoy writing with a fountain pen versus pencil or ballpoint.

Interests aside, I am currently a student pursuing my undergraduate degree in Computer Science, with a minor in Deaf Studies. I attend the University of Minnesota Duluth, in the beautiful port city of Duluth, MN —which certainly comes as a surprise. After school and work, I don't have much free time, but what I do have I devote much of to student government, games and stories, and writing.

My passion for technology, student government, my personal interests and maybe a funny image or two are the things you may see me post and comment on. Enjoy it or not, the choice is yours!

Excellent little restaurant just a half walk from Dupont Circle in DC. The staff was friendly and prompt with service. I had the Catfish, which was delicious. The decor and location belies a surprisingly pleasant experience.

This is like a classier Subway, with more options, fresh ingredients and salads being first class citizens alongside sandwiches. I had some trouble understanding the accents of the employees, and the restaurant is noisy enough for it to matter, but their service is excellent. Great quality for a good $ price.
