Chrome's "Show Saved Copy" is the feature I never knew I severely wanted.

Recruiter thinks I'd be a "good fit" for a "Digital .NET Developer" position.

Sadly, none of my .NET developer experience is digital. :(

My 9yo, who is anything but short for his age, walks up to me in his STORM TROOPER shirt. I say "What's up, Storm Trooper?", to which he replies, "Aren't I a little short for a Storm Trooper?"

Nice.

XBox Live account creation wizard encouraging my kid to use for XBox Live "the password" he uses on other services. Not impressed to see a premium service educating users to re-use passwords.

After the gigantic PSN hack in 2011 you'd think these services would be promoting security like crazy.

Sitting in the recliner with 5yo daughter, eating pizza together while watching the SpaceX mission live: "Daddy, why isn't our house spinning like the rest of the Earth?"

That was fun to watch! Wish the feed from the landing platform hadn't given out though!

Despite a disdain for hype-casts (see new blog post), we WILL advise when there's some confidence in an event in the medium-range (5-10 days). Patterns are easier to identify than specifics at that range, i.e., an Arctic blast of cold air vs. exact temps or snow amounts.

WOW! If you can get to Nashville to see the Holiday Laser Light Show at Adventure Science Center's Sudekum Planetarium, I recommend it HIGHLY.

Story
Introduction
Lance is a husband, father, software developer, and a perpetual learner. When he's not with his family or working, he likes to sing in the choir and occasionally play a video game. He also wonders why anyone would use the third person when authoring an introduction about themselves.
Bragging rights
I once solved a Wheel of Fortune puzzle before a single letter was shown. I know. Amazing.
