Lend me your minds (pretty please?)!!

So it just occurred to us that we should probably put up a small gate on our back porch, to keep the neighbor's kids from wandering onto our porch and falling into the pool this summer (because that would be terrible).

The issue here is that we have a dog who goes on and off the porch regularly, so we need to set up a gate of some kind that'll open for the dog, but not for other people. I was thinking of some kind of locking system that works with a sensor that we could put on her collar, but I can't seem to really find anything. We could get an automatic dog door that works the same way, but this gate will be outdoors and I'm worried they won't stand up to the weather. 

So with that in mind.... Any ideas? This is something we'd really love to have finished by the time we open the pool for the summer (in about a month or two).

+Vincent Messina That's not a bad idea, I hadn't thought of that. Our real concern is when we're away from the house, we want the dog to at least be able to go up on the porch during rain or bad weather.

I'm a fan of Martin Sheen as the president, and I'm digging the dry humor that's sprinkled everywhere. But it's not for everyone. Coming from House of Cards, this is definitely a different experience.

If they're operating off Sprint's services, absolutely not. Get with T-Mobile and then we'll talk.

Nancy Worley has written some fanciful Christmas letters to friends and fellow Democrats before, but never one so ... descriptive as this one.

Blue

Blue is the colour most commonly associated with harmony, faithfulness, confidence, distance, infinity, the imagination, cold, and sadness.

In U.S. and European public opinion polls it is chosen by almost half of both men and women as their favourite colour.

Blue focuses poorly in the eye, so we tend to pay more attention to make sure we are seeing correctly.

Question for anyone that might know the answer.

I have my bedroom lights plugged into a D-Link wifi outlet (controlled through an app on my HTC One M8). I want to either set an automatic command to turn them on when I connect to my home Wifi, or create a Google Now voice command that turns them on. I can't do that through the D-Link app itself, so I essentially need something that will turn the lights on through the app automatically. 

Is this even possible? I've looked into Tasker but it's way over my head. Any suggestions?

Okay, Google. You've got my attention now.
 
More Google Wireless / Nova MVNO details emerge

Last week when we talked about Google's upcoming MVNO deal with T-Mobile and Sprint, I speculated that Google would 'Googlify' their offering to differentiate themselves from the likes of other MVNO's by utilizing both T-Mobile's and Sprint's network without the need to swap SIM cards. According to the latest info on the matter Google will utilize technology that can measure the quality of networks in your area — including any available WiFi hotspots — and hop onto the best one. This is great news for those that live in areas with mixed quality of coverage from both carriers. Unless you live in an area with zero coverage from Sprint or T-Mobile, like me.
It was only last week we caught wind of Google's plans to become an MVNO to provide affordable wireless service and we've already gotten some early details. Google will use a new technology that will automatically select the best available T-Mobile or Sprint network.

It's funny and sad that The Daily Show is in 3rd place above the major news networks, and it isn't even meant to be a serious newscast.
 
According to this study: people who watch no news are better informed than people who watch certain US news channels.

College kid, political blogger, most sarcastic guy you'll ever meet. Ignorance is my kryptonite.
Introduction
I'm a young, enthusiastic writer pursuing a career in journalism and politics. If you ever find yourself in a conversation with me, be on the lookout for nerdy references. I love discussions and debates, and I am fascinated by the way we communicate and interact when it comes to certain issues. Fair warning: sarcasm is my favorite method of relating a point. I'm very sarcastic, which comes off as asshole-ish to some people. 

Anyway, feel free to circle me if you're entertained by random political or nerdy posts about Android and other things.

Ingress Resistance Birmingham UK

The Resistance effort in Birmingham UK for Ingress

Absolutely. Awful. Service. Took nearly 45 minutes to get our food. The waiter spent over an hour dealing with one table (that had been there before we even arrived). After he brought our drinks, it's like we never existed. When we FINALLY got our food, we didn't even get everything we ordered. I asked for steak sauce to go with my sirloin, and the waitress who brought our food to us said she would bring some right over to us. We never saw her again. I ended up walking over to the waiter's station and grabbing a bottle of A1 my damn self. We finished eating and sat at our table for ANOTHER HOUR before the waiter finally approached us and asked if we needed anything else. We got the check, paid, and left. Worst service I have ever received at an O'Charley's location, or at any restaurant for that matter. Never eating here again.

Food was not very good, the pizza selection is pathetic. They only offer three or four different types of pizza, and all of them are lacking in cheese and flavor. The salad bar is definitely sub-par and the pasta isn't winning any awards either. Not worth $7 at all.
