The Denver Broncos almost made me late to work today
Two of the Denver Broncos’ team buses were involved in a minor traffic accident involving a CHP motorcycle on Highway 101 in Sunnyvale on Monday afternoon. The CHP said the bus was returning to the team hotel in Santa Clara after a practice at Stanford when the incident occurred at 1:47 p.m. north of Highway 237. The driver of a car in front of the Broncos’ caravan, seeing the motorcycles behind with their lights flashing, apparently thought he...

Remember to backup your code to an offsite server somewhere (ideally under version control).

Current status: rebuilding my home automation stuff from two decompiled apks. Dex2Jar -> Jd-Gui does a decent job for a lot of stuff, but I'm still cleaning a lot of it (switches on Strings and foreach loops tend to come out ugly, and I want my local variable names). There are still a lot of places where I have to translate the smali by hand.

One thing I did is setup a depot, not for a project, but for scratch work. Helps to have a sort of default place to put things that might not go anywhere. Later they can get their own repository.

Alan Rickman is undoubtedly one of the greatest actors I will ever work with. He is also, one of the loyalest and most supportive people I've ever met in the film industry. He was so encouraging of me both on set and in the years post-Potter. I'm pretty sure he came and saw everything I ever did on stage both in London and New York. He didn't have to do that. I know other people who've been friends with him for much much longer than I have and they all say "if you call Alan, it doesn't matter where in the world he is or how busy he is with what he's doing, he'll get back to you within a day".

People create perceptions of actors based on the parts they played so it might surprise some people to learn that contrary to some of the sterner(or downright scary) characters he played, Alan was extremely kind, generous, self-deprecating and funny. And certain things obviously became even funnier when delivered in his unmistakable double-bass.

As an actor he was one of the first of the adults on Potter to treat me like a peer rather than a child. Working with him at such a formative age was incredibly important and I will carry the lessons he taught me for the rest of my life and career. Film sets and theatre stages are all far poorer for the loss of this great actor and man.

This is the part where some scientist yells "BINGO!"
 
Four elements complete the seventh row of the periodic table.

I hate the prequels, but I think the prequel hate kind of ruined The Force Awakens. What I love so much about Star Wars (the original trilogy) is that it's filled with so many fresh, interesting ideas. TFA has some new ideas, and really great new characters, but it's kind of diminished by retreading the originals.
