I've dusted off my river generation experiment and done a bit more work on it.

Muffins take two. The bottoms burned and they came out a bit dry, but they are actual muffins this time.

+Glenn Morgan well, not immediately. I have plenty of muffins for now even if I have to slice the bottoms off. I am hoping to work my way up to my Granny's nutmeg cake eventually.

Marijuana smokers.  If you want the support of the rest of us in terms of legalization, then be conscious of your stink.  Pot is even more foul smelling than tobacco, and that's REALLY saying something.  I'm currently unable to open my windows or use my balcony because of neighbours who are smoking both marijuana and tobacco on their balcony near constantly.

Once it gets in, it take hours with my bathroom and kitchen extractor fans running to get rid of the smell from the rest of the apartment and of course I can't open the windows to let in fresh air because that's where the stench is coming from.  I've just renewed my complaint with the landlord since the neighbours seem to have redoubled their efforts to smoke me out of my home of late.

I'm basically inclined toward the "if you aren't hurting anyone else, do what you want" argument but at least as long as it's illegal there's at least some minor control on it affecting everyone else. Tobacco smokers  already completely ignore the token laws meant to protect the rest of us from them with complete impunity.  Legalizing weed would just add even more stink that we can't do anything to stop and even without legalization, this behaviour is just demonstrating what the rest of us are in for.

Smokers in general have established that they are incapable of showing even the slightest regard for those around them, and marijuana smokers are well on the way to showing that they are not an exception.

Trying out the new Pandemic expansion with a solo game. (I prefer running two characters to the CDC based solo game) I was using 4 epidemics, hinterland, lab, virulent strain, emergency events, and quarantines. I never actually used the quarantines though. I'd just about cured blue when the yellow hinterlands had an outbreak leading to a chain reaction in central Africa that pushed me to 7 outbreaks. I managed to cure blue the next turn and started trying to bring yellow under control when an epidemic hit London, which already had one cube

Now with lakes and endorheic basins.

The lake algorithm is to pick a point, then expand up stream. For all the segments followed this way, fin the midpoints of all coincident edges of the triangulation and then find the convex hull of that.  Merge all the hulls and then inset slightly to get the final lake.

Boundless has released version 4.6 of OpenGeo Suite. Improvements include significant improvements to Composer and YSLD, colour blending and compositing, much improved implementation of WPS, performance improvements to PostGIS, and support for INSPIRE.

You can get the Basic edition (No Composer, YSLD, clustering, or support) for free. A new release of our QGIS installer should also be along shortly.
OpenGeo Suite 4.6, our complete open-source geospatial software stack so organizations of all sizes can build great maps and applications.

I attempted bran muffins after not having baked anything since grade 7 home economics. It did not end well.

Besides mixing things together in the wrong order, I also failed to sufficiently soften my rock hard brown sugar leaving big lumps in the batter and I completely neglected to add the milk.

I'm fairly sure the resulting objects are suited to some sort of industrial purpose, but certainly not for human consumption.

A 100 year old mechanical computer that does Fourier Analysis.  Even more incredible, the mechanism is actually fairly comprehensible.

Beer isn't my thing, but the Sparkmouth Ginger Ale is awesome. It has a strong ginger taste more like a ginger beer than a ginger ale with a nice 'caney' taste to the sugar. The ginger also has a freshness to it compare to the more cooked ginger flavour of most ginger beers. Not better or worse over all, but a nice difference.

Good food, awesome service, and an all you can play games buffet. If you think board games are just boring oldies like Monopoly, you need to visit Interactivity.

Great food. The Hot and Sour soup and Szechwan squid are excellent. Mostly lit with incandescent lights so it's great if you don't like fluorescents.
