Had a great stay. Friendly staff. Good value when we stayed there, but would probably feel differently at high season rates.

5 stars first visit, three stars on second, so I'll average them out. Large portion food in a busy diner. The owner was really welcoming and sort of a character. However, the staff sort of ignored us on our second visit (i e. No menus and I had to find somebody to order), but the food was still good.

Our toddler loved running through the city on this innovative trail.

Stopped by to get out of the cold. Insanely overpriced and with unhappy service. However, it did remind me how much I like biscotti.

Two hours to get through security and customs seems a bit excessive. Extremely rude border control person. Not a nice way to be welcomed back home.

Even in the densest block in Sydney, we still have visitors like these Lorikeets.

I'm finding most of Google's apps are becoming unusable on my Galaxy Nexus, especially if they use the keyboard. The text bar in hangouts takes 20-30 seconds every time I want to send a message. Installing something else for Jabber (hangouts).

Frustrated enough that I'm tempted to get an iPhone, which says something if you've met me.

I was using swype keyboard before, but it got to heavy and had to use Google keyboard instead. I am also facing memory limitations, apps get killed often, including system ui and android.phone Too many things running these days, 1gb ram is not enough..only 700 available to user apps. Have you considered any replacements?

Geocoding Photos (Mac)

All kinds of cool. Kind of makes me want to get some lily pads and do some wearable hacking.

Snap-CI Deploy to OpenShift
There are some wonderful CI / CD  tools out there right now, and some of them have very usable free tiers. A few good examples include Shippable , Wercker , CloudBees, and Snap-CI . There are others, of course, but these all allow at least one private proje...

TL;DR:   Sudan < China < USA < Australia < New Zealand < Sweden

The U.S. fits under category #4:   "Workers in countries with the rating of 4 have reported systematic violations. The government and/or companies are engaged in serious efforts to crush the collective voice of workers putting fundamental rights under continuous threat."

Love the photo - a bunch of cyclists and two trucks.

Besides that, it is little things like this that make me proud to be from Oregon.
ODOT wants to know more about your bicycling behavior and they're starting with trip data from Strava.

Here's what made my jaw drop when reading this article:

"To do this while you’re securely connected to a website with an address beginning with https, Graham explains, Superfish intercepts traffic from the site and makes it searchable by tinkering with the Windows operating system and granting itself the ability to masquerade as any web site on the internet."

I have owned a T23, an X61, and an X200. That's about 10 years worth of Thinkpads. With my X200 nearing retirement, that's it for me. Although I would install Linux on the laptop when I first got it, this type of behaviour makes me question if they've done anything else dodgy in their laptop's firmware.
Lenovo says that the Superfish adware it preinstalled on laptop computers isn't a security problem. That's not true. And guess what? It breaks Slack too.

Not a problem if your wipe Windows and install Linux.

Your time to join 1300 other developers and open data fans in Australia's GovHack event is running out - just one day left until the competition kicks off! (July 11th - 13th)

There's a bucket load of prize money to be had and no need to travel very far, as there are over 10 established competition sites, including two in Sydney.

You can compete remotely, too. So, if you're interested in open data and hack events, or know somebody who is, then don't delay: http://www.govhack.org/register-2014/

Solved: slow build times from Dockerfiles with Python packages (pip)
I have recently had the opportunity to begin exploring Docker , the currently hip way to build application containers, and I generally like it. It feels a bit like using Xen back in 2005, when you still had to download it from cl.cam.ac.uk, but there is hug...
