After weeks of memory errors, I finally got around to running memtest, and here's the culprit. I'm glad it was only one chip, but I'm equally sad about its failure rate. In all my years of computer ownership, this is the first RAM chip that has ever failed on me this way.

Good thing I have extras lying around.

I've only encountered one bad stick in 28 years of life. That was the memory upgrade that resulted in me having to reformat my workstation.

Huh. Not surprised at the merge, only at the name. 
Details leak: Google is reportedly planning a launch device for its new operating system.

Hmm, survey for the Omega2 is out and now I have to pick my dock. I backed for the Omega2 + Dock, and I'm trying to decide between Expansion, Mini and Power. Probably not the power, considering there are microUSB-to-lithium power pack adapters if I really wanted to go that route. I'm considering the Expansion dock for versatility but the Mini dock makes it really nice for tiny applications.

I don't have any projects in mind at the moment. Any thoughts on what I should get?

Now we have a way to categorize self-driving cars, rather than open field on the definition. According to the SAE scale, no current car in the field has passed level 2 on the 0-5 scale, with 0 being a fully human operated car. This should help temper the belief that cars like a Tesla can be operated while the driver watches a movie, or that hands-off automation will never become permanent. 
There's a 15-point safety assessment for manufacturers and help for individual states.

That's the beauty of regulations. They can pretend whatever they want, it won't change the results.

Here's an excellent excuse to get off Windows if you're looking at Kaby Lake and its eventual successors and fretting about upgrading to the privacy disaster that is Windows 10. 
Rejoice Linux fans; the operating system will work on Dell XPS 13 laptops with Intel's Kaby Lake chips.

I'm not sure what you're talking about with a lack of games. Here's my Steam library on Linux.

Another reminder that presidential debates are private events with no public oversight, no guarantee of fairness, and not a real indicator of the issues. 
In 2015, FCC declared similar “willful… interference” as “illegal.”

It should be a universal design rule that the ESC key always closes pop-in modals on web pages. Always, and without fail.

It's mainly a problem when using vim but you can't really do a Bluetooth keyboard and Wi-Fi where I work, so usually I use a PC keyboard more often then this laptop case

That's a paddling, Google.

No text messaging support
Can only be installed on a single device

I think this is just a tech demo for Google Assistant.

If you're skeptical of Huffpost, that's fine, at least do the courtesy of following some of their links to fact-check them. This is a big problem in this election, along with a few other issues of the day.
There are not “two evils.” There is one. And his name is Donald Trump.

Maybe people think she's evil because half her own party used it as the selling point to try to get their longshot radical candidate in?

But you won't find my issues with Hillary (or Obama) amongst this post. I don't hold anything against her for email security or Benghazi.

What's with breaking backwards compatibility these days?

If you want backwards compatibility you know it's Microsoft's camp you should be in. :P

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.
