I thought #apple  said they were going to support #aperture  through #yosimite  I just upgraded my laptop to 10.10.4 and it is telling me Aperature needs to be updated but there's no update available. So now I can't use some of the most important software I own :/

It's a good thing I haven't installed this utter garbage on my primary desktop so I can still run Aperture there.

Found a fix: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/6601328 

The second suggestion, the one that doesn't involve convoluted VMware installs, solved the problem.

Wow. I didn't expect this.
Mozambique decriminalises homosexuality in its new penal code, making it one of a few African countries where same-sex relationships are legal.

Yay for the girl scouts!

I really hope this makes the donor rethink their hateful and ville position.

About bloody time #apple  enabled TRIM for non-Apple drives. (The article says "El Capitan 10.10.4", it's actually Yosemite.)
Apple has begun enabling TRIM support in its latest OS update if you install a third-party SSD -- but be advised, some SSDs don't work with the chosen method of TRIM.

WARNING: The pictures at this link are very much NSFW. You have been warned.

This post is about the results when a couple hate-filled bible-pushers/god-thumpers/[expletive deleted]s pushed just a bit too hard at Portland's World Naked Bike Ride event.
I watched as the protestors stood at the edge of Colonel Summers Park, the starting point for Portland's version of the World Naked Bike Ride, megaphones to their mouths, spewing hate, and I wanted to feel disbelief.  I mean, it always borders on the surreal when you come across humans so utterly consumed, so driven, so warped by hate, but it's become a common occurrence to come across this sort of thing at most large public gathering...

Closing "night" for 1776 at SMT. I was doing this instead of marching in Seattle's Pride parade. It was a very tough decision but I think I chose the right thing.

You did the right thing. This has clearly been a heckuva lot of fun for you, and you deserve that.

No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.

Well said sir. Well said, indeed.

While I admit to missing APL I don't think I'm going to be trying to learn this. It is fun to ponder though.

Their menu is varied and interesting. They almost always have specials that are worth strong consideration. If you order the paella you need to tell them you want the crust. Evidently they stopped doing it because people were complaining that it existed (no, really). Also, I'd suggest avoiding the paella mixta (the one that's just land animals is fine), I find it a bit too soupy.

I'm not a coffee drinker but I love their hot chocolate (make sure you ask for the good chocolate and make it strong). The staff is always very friendly and outgoing. It's obvious they know their regulars and care about keeping people happy.

I was really torn on the rating for service. Sometimes it's good sometimes it's not good at all. Some of the staff tend to play favorites and while I've never been ignored it's clear who the owners know personally. I think there's recently been a change of ownership so that may no longer be quite the issue it has been in the past. I enjoy their pizzas. I've tried a few of their non-pizza dishes and they were all passable or good but 90+% of the time when I go there it's for pizza. This is not the place to go if you're in a hurry or are allergic to screaming children. It's a local family restaurant and there are almost always small children very much present.
