+Whiskey, Ink, & Lace makes hands down the best men's products out there today. I have their shaving soap, aftershave, beard oil, and beard balm. Love all of it. AND all hand made products made in the US!

Anyone have any idea if there is a way to sync Google calendars that aren't my primary calendar? I'd like to sync some secondary calendars to the ElementaryOS Calendar app, but it appears my primary calendar is the only one it lets me sync.

Yeah I'm having the same issue on my personal laptop where I have multiple email accounts and calendars; they are google calendars.

I've installed tweaks for Loki but I'm wondering if anyone has found a good editing tool for Plank? I'd like to move it around, shrink it... you know. That standards. Anyone?

+A Simarmata Halihiraja​​ There is no such thing as "no UX" (only if there is actually no user). Having to use an obscure shortcut to access basic preferences is just plain bad. +Lane Greer​​​ I agree that the customisation feature is great. The point is it's hardly accessible, so I don't get why it's included at all if apparently it's not supposed to be used. It should be easier to get there!

Hey Guys. I've been working through CodeAcademy JS courses and i'm stuck on one that I can't really understand. I put the script together and it kept failing. Then I threw it into a JS checker and was able to make some changes and got it working but I don't really understand why it worked. Here's the pastebin link. If someone could hop in and explain why I don't need these extra curly brackets, I would really appreciate it.

Hey community. I've been running a pretty stable environment of CouchPotato, Sonarr, and Emby on Ubuntu 15.1 for a while now. About a month or so ago I ran out of storage and because of the age and stupidity of the Dell PERCi6 raid card in my server, I had no way to make any changes to my HDD configuration without deleting my virtual disks and reinstalling.

SO... I just decided to nuke it all and start over. I bought a used Qnap NAS and another hard drive for my server. Installed mergerfs and snapraid on my server, and moved to Ubuntu Mate 16.04. The reconfig was a bit of a beast and I'd love to be able to dummy proof myself more in the future.

Do any of you guys have experience running these application in Docker containers that you can backup and just pull back down and reinstall in the future? If so, what are the pros/cons of moving to Docker for all my media applications?

I run it in a lxc guest. But to be more portable, I would use KVM. Have not really bought into docker yet.... I bet there are already dockers out for it though...

I'm in the process of upgrading my media rig at my house to incorporate mergerfs and snapraid, add in NAS storage to supplement my server storage, and move my tv from sickrage to sonarr.

I have never really don't a lot of backing up but considering the configuration that has to be created and fstab entries for mergerfs and snapraid I really want to get some full backups scheduled. I'm wanting to do daily snapshots, weekly backups, and monthly backups (that will be compressed every month). I'm moving ahead with rsync and have been doing some reading. Right now I'm running with

$rsync -avz--progress --exclude-from=excludes.txt / /mnt/nas/rsync

where i'm telling it to exclude /mnt (where all my mass storage is mounted), and /home/user/parity (my snapraid parity drive)

Do you guys have any recommendations about other things I might not want to sync?

Is anyone actually interested in this collection? Let me know if you find my periodic insights helpful!

Also, I hate to say it, but the upgrade to Android 7 exponentially increased my criticisms of Android auto. They are working hard to make it almost impossible to use you phone when connected, and currently, Android Auto just doesn't work very well. There are so many functions missing that it feels like someone there it together on a weekend and hasn't looked at it yet.

Like the fact that I have had my unit for over a year and a half and not a single new piece of functionality has been introduced. The only changes has been in the fact that the longer I have used it the more poorly my phone performs.

So I upgraded my Nexus 6P to Android 7.0 and now my Android Auto device is pretty much useless. The issue lies in the fact that Android has had a bug in their Bluetooth stack for a while, where when i'm on a call in my car, my phone will just drop my bluetooth connection and fall back to earpiece, causing me to scramble to pick up my phone. THAT'S NOT SAFE AT ALL.

But, in Android 7 they have completely removed the ability for you to quickly access your phone's OS while plugged into Android Auto. I understand why this was done, but what I don't understand is why they would do this with a system that is still so bug ridden. Really frustrating.

I figured I might as well share this radio station. This started out as my #study playlist I curated in #college on #itunes . It grew and grew till I moved over to +Google Play #Music a couple of years ago. Then they launched the ability to turn any #playlist into a #radio station that uses the playlist's contents as seeds for what on the station. i flipped it to a radio station and let me tell you. IT IS GOLD! Hope you enjoy. #forthewin

Nexus 6 / 6P  - 
 
So I just updated my 6P to Android 7.0 and I have to say, the Nexus Launcher is pretty disappointing. Has anyone figured out how to retain the "Swipe Left for Google Now" feature? I've enabled it in the Nexus Launcher settings but it doesn't work.

+Chris Perry is right. You can't uninstall your current active launcher. He pointed that out to me as well.

Anyone in here running CouchPotato on an Ubuntu rig? I'm running into issues and I'd really just like to completely nuke my CP install and start over, but now when I just remove the .couchpotato directory and reinstall from git, the python command just hangs. No idea what's bogging it down.

Introduction

PLEASE READ: If you are going to add me to your circles and want me to add you back, please have a picture of yourself as your profile picture and some information about you in your profile. I hope that's not asking too much.

I am a normal guy living my life in love with my college sweetheart and wife, Hannah. We have two awesome dogs, Brody Bear and Cocha. Check out my photos to see them.

I am bound to my GOD by the sin He saved me from, and no amount of generosity or philanthropy will free my from dependence on His grace. That is my blessing.

Stuff I'm into:

  • Boutique Fine Wine (primarily French, German & Spanish)
  • Craft Beer (I like balanced beer. Not a huge fan of over malted stouts or over hoppy IPAs. Life is about balance and moderation and my taste in beer is similar)
  • Whisky - as a general rule I try to keep my cabinet stocked with one single malt Scotch whisky, one blended Scotch whisky, and one Kentucky Bourbon at all times. They're all fantastic but I just depends what kind of mood I'm in.
  • Music - if you want to know the kind of music I'm into just search Google+ for #eclecticcollection. I post stuff pretty regularly under that hashtag. 
  • The merger of society and technology for the purpose of the enrichment of life in general. In the words of Google CEO, Larry Page, "Technology sould do the hard work, so you can get on and live your life."

Favorite Quotes:

"I fear the man who drinks water and so remembers this morning what the rest of us said last night." ~Benjamin Franklin~

Not a single booth near an electrical outlet. Just wanted to have some dinner and do work on my computer and apparently IHOP doesn't want to enable people to acquire regulars. Oh well. Won't be coming back here.

Great restaurant in downtown historic Woodstock. Food was pretty average Italian but pricing was great, service was great, and overall it was a really fun time!

Gorgeous hotel! Really loved my stay. Room was amazing. There isn't really much to do nearby, but I would certainly stay there again.

I'm a grad student at GA Tech and this is the hotel where we have all our meals. Everything is great. Food is fantastic. Getting drink service is a little chaotic but I'll cut them some slack. They pump a ton of people through this dining hall.

Fantastic restaurant with attentive staff, thoughtful cocktails, great wine list, and really impressive menu items. Good atmosphere. We usually sit on the patio and have always had a wonderful time. One of my wife and I's favorite places!
