I do wonder if it wouldn't be better if government ran those funds. Or if they were better regulated. Expose all their finances!
The Federal Trade Commission says four cancer charities conned donors out of $187 million and spent almost nothing to help actual cancer patients.

So what's going to replace ActiveX? AX is a security problem, but can access local resources, esp processes and files. It doesn't look like any technology for IPC on the desktop between browser and native apps is coming.
Microsoft's new Edge browser will discard two of the oldest browser technologies found in the aged Internet Explorer and replace them with add-ons based on HTML5 and JavaScript.

First they tell us you can't have everything (CAP theorem) then they tell us the network is not reliable and now there's no now! People want predictability, security. Where does this lead to?

I had a check engine light on and after looking up the error codes and consulting the net wisdom brought the car to DRW. His diagnosis was as expected from the BMW forums I had consulted and he repaired quickly and for a very reasonable price. I am happy with the repairs and haven't had a problem since.

An Italian experience on the other side of the world. Good coffee, although the quality varies. Good pastries and cake. Gelato is quite good too. There is a little outside seating area.

The Park covers much of the eucalyptus forest above El Granada. It contains a quarry with a overlook deck from which you have a nice view of pillar point. There is a children's playground on the bottom with a picnic area. Fire roads give good hiking and biking opportunities.

Went there for a team lunch. The dining room is windowless but decorated with colorful peruvian art. The service was friendly and enthusiastic. We shared the mixed appetizer with beef heart skewers (good), giant corn, and a bit of ceviche. The main meals were all good. I would recommend trying their peruvian juices.

Dr Viale anesthesized me for a knee operation. He called the evening before, a Sunday, and explained in clear language what he was planning to do. He also went a bit into the background of how the chemicals interact inside the body and what to expect. In the clinic he was cheerful and friendly with patients and nurses.

The place is a euro style cafe. They sell espresso and little lunches along with ice cream. I find them to be friendly and the cappuccinos are okay. There is also free wifi.
