Here I was, thinking I don't know what's going on here ... now I feel better knowing that nobody knows what the hell is going on.

Stay classy, UBC.
The University of British Columbia’s faculty association is calling on the school and former president Arvind Gupta, who abruptly resigned last month, to speak freely and fully about why he quit or was pushed out. “We have a major public relations crisis unfolding, complete with rumours of backstabbing, malfeasance, conflicts of interest, and manipulation, as well as an ongoing independent inquiry into actions of senior university officials,” the...

We need a new party

We need a party without labels. Conservative, Democratic, Liberal, they all mean dirtbag to me. 

We need a party dedicated to improving the society. A party who recognizes that security is as important as privacy. One who values research and discovery over nonsense. We need people who want to fast forward to the future, not dwell in the past. We need politicians who realize the importance of clean energy over oil & gas lobby money. We need politicians who can be bought, but won't be. We need people regulating education who send their kids to public schools, not private. We need rulers who live among us, not above us. We need a government who works for the 99% majority, not the 1% minority. We need a government that understands technology, not one that fears it.

We need something better. Much better. We're getting screwed.

Show up.
Even if you're not planning on whining.

Let's say you don't care because you think they're all the same (and to an extent, they are). Vote for the rest of us.

Dear Canadian friends. Please remember to vote. It you don't vote, you can't whine about how bad your government is, and seriously, who doesn't love to have a good whine.

Really... Show up or shut up.

I did a bit of reading on guitar pickup magnet core types. I was wondering why artificial harmonics are easier to produce on my LTD guitar (EMG 81) than on the LP (Seymour Duncan Alnico II APH-2).

Used quite differently from that other thing in a box.

If you're unsure what the other thing in the box is, put your headphones on and Google "saturday night live in a box".
'Heart in a Box' Saves More Organs for Transplant

UK Researchers have invented a special device capable of reviving a heart from patients who experience circulatory death to keep it viable for transplant into other patients.

Traditionally, when a patient experiences circulatory death, the heart becomes useless for this purpose, leaving only hearts from patients who experience brain death but not circulatory death as viable donor organs.

This new technology could significantly increase the number of hearts available to save other patients by saving hearts recovered after circulatory death but before oxygen depletion irreparably damages the organ.

So ... kittens swim.
Did not know.

On a side note, if you don't want kittens, put them up for adoption. Don't leave incapable defenceless animals out by the fucking river. The closest animal shelter is probably closer to you than the boons.

LOL ... Right!

You received a free license for Cerberus in a promotional period. We deeply apologize, but unfortunately it was not feasible anymore to make it last for a lifetime, so your license will expire after 3 years of free service, on June 1st 2016.

We hope Cerberus helped you recover a lost or stolen device during these years, and that you will consider buying a license. Since by the time your license expires the app will be probably more expensive and subscription-based (with an annual or monthly fee), we offer you to purchase a lifetime license now with a one-time payment.

... and what guarantee do I have that this lifetime license is more lifetime than the other one, which you just said is not lifetime anymore?

No, thanks, +Cerberus, I'll stick with Google Device Manager.

Working from home, I was unable to SSH into my Linux box. I had a colleague locally log in to the machine to see why.
He told me I was using the wrong IP¹ address for my machine to connect. 
He also told me that my machine did not have sshd installed.

¹ what are the chances that I get the wrong IP and the machine STILL has sshd running on it?
