A couple domains I have registered are expiring soon, so I decided to take another look at Google Domains to pleasantly find out they support Dynamic DNS now and they cost less than renewing my registration at namecheap! This support article provided by Google even includes example ddclient.conf to make the process easy to set up :)

I was delighted this evening to discover a great feature of Google Drive. 

I sync my saved games to Google Drive for safe keeping incase of hard drive failure so I don't have to worry about losing my data. However, I was playing around with Dolphin Emulator and enabled some cheatcodes that accidentally corrupted some of my save files! I looked to Google Drive for the old versions, but the overwrite had already been uploaded. Upon further inspection however, I've found out that Google Drive keeps old versions of files for you for 30 days after you overwrite them! Thanks to this great feature I was able to restore my save data just the way it was before.

I just wish there was more visibility of the existence of this feature so I would have known about it in the past when I had similar issues.

-If Google authentication expires, you now get the option to sign back in. This way you won't lose hours of save data when this happens to you in the middle of a long session.

If you want more technical details of what is going on with this change read on:

The way Googulator communicates with Google Drive is via Google's APIs using OAuth. The way this works is when you sign in a token is given to Googulator to use when it requests data on your behalf to show Google that you authorized this access. However, these tokens are temporary and will expire if they aren't refreshed.

To mitigate this issue Googulator now properly checks on a responses to requests to see if they failed because we lost authorization. If this is the case a few things will be triggered:
- first, an attempt will be made to request a refreshed token (should work in most cases), if we get it things are retried and the user sees no interruptions.
-If this fails, the user is prompted to log back in (twice in case they didn't realize they are about to lose a bunch of save data because they didn't want to log back in for some reason). If they log back in we try again.
-Finally if they don't log back in, we try to enable offline mode if possible (still must be configured before hand). 

Hopefully this will lead to a much more stable environment and less heartache over time being wasted!

Here's a tip for android users. Let's say you have a device that you haven't used for weeks and you go to unlock it. Problem: you don't remember the unlock pattern and you keep getting longer wait times. Solution I used: login to android device manager at android.com/devicemanager and you can lock your device and give it a new password to unlock it. Once unlocked you can go into settings and change the password settings to whatever you desire them to be.

Google is doing 2:1 donation matching for donations to help deal with the global ebola crisis. That means if you donate $5, Google will donate $10 #fightEbola  
Help #FightEbola. For every $1 you donate, Google will donate $2 to four nonprofits doing critical humanitarian work in West Africa. Together we can do more. Donate now.

This place is horrible. The food is overpriced and the service is awful. We had to wait an hour to get our side salads. Which was only half of our party's side salads, the other two came out 15 minutes later since they were waiting for the tomatoes to rot more. When our food finally showed up an hour later they brought one of us the wrong meal because they can't read what they wrote in their iPhone correct when they took our order. After pointing this out they bring a bill with the wrong item still on it even though they said they'd change it. After three attempts they managed to properly split the bill and correct the errors and the owner came out and bribed us with dessert to come back. On top of that no one was willing to own up to any of it but the new guy who actually did the best of them all. This restaurant does not deserve to exist

Artichoke pizza is great and I highly recommend it but not this location. Over the past month this location received a C health inspection rating. To hide the fact they left the old A rating posted at eye height whereas the C rating is down in the corner of a window that they usually cover with a trash lid to completely obscure it.

My favorite Chinese takeout place for lunch in the area. The lunch specials are only $6.25 and you get your choice of rice and soup to come with it! Plus, it is always way more food than I can eat in one sitting

Really nice movie theater with a lot of screens. It is surprisingly easy to get a good seat for whatever your seeing even though its right next to times square. The seats are very nice and comfy

It is a very good aquarium with a lot of different cool animals. However, it is a bit overpriced at $30 a ticket for only about an hour and a half worth of things to look at. Other than the price it is great and at 2:30pm you can see them feed the two hippos!

The artichoke pizza is amazing! Its slightly annoying that you aren't allowed to order by the slice if your sitting down to eat, but the 1/3 pizza wedge is good to split for two people. I highly recommend going to one of the locations and experiencing this masterpiece if you visit NYC
