Awesome classic (pre-web) SF now available online!
IF Magazine was a monthly science fiction magazine that was first published in 1952, and ran through 1974, before it was merged into its sister publication, Galaxy Science Fiction. Now, you can read the entire run online over on Internet Archive.

Awesome.
In wintry Omaha, Nebraska, a local veteran is using his modded wheelchair to help neighbors with snow plowing.

Teens, join in the fun with Google Code-in contest

This week is the start of Google Code-in, a contest introducing teens to open source software development. Interested students can now register at the contest site, g.co/codein, and start claiming and working on tasks designed by 14 open source projects. Students can earn certificates, t-shirts, hoodies and a grand prize trip to Google’s headquarters next summer.

Google Code-in is an opportunity for students to use the skills they have been learning in the classroom and apply them to real open source projects. Students can become involved with these open source communities and see first hand how software projects work while also learning new skills.

Time to "borrow" some really good words. 
While investigating non-English words associated with positive emotions and concepts, a British researcher recently discovered 216 foreign words for which there is no English translation.

Courteous staff. Tasty malts. Decent prices. My wife & daughter insist it's worth 5 stars! "Secret" menu sign could be larger though.

Peeved today. Called in a to-go order and they gave it to someone else. An opportunity to make nice with a potentially cranky customer? Nope. No accommodation. No seat at the bar. Not even a snack while waiting. Just time burned in a chair. A lost opportunity. Quick edit. Now that I'm home, I can see my micro-serving of kaprow shrimp.

Much quicker service than at the nearby university location. Part of me would prefer that no one else figures that out and comes here instead, but I'm ignoring that part.

A warm, well-lit shop -- with a knowledgeable gentleman behind the counter. What more could I ask? How about a stocked section of kid-friendly comics? It's there. An alcove of comics for older folks? It's there, too. What's not to like? Bethesda parking. It's crowded around here. And don't forget to feed the meters even on Saturday, or you'll eat a $45 fine. Ouch.
