We've got our last round of charity auctions ending tonight, folks. We've got some amazing stuff up for grabs.

There are going to be a lot of food trucks by the convention center this year for Gen Con.  They posted the list here http://gencon.com/experience/foodtrucks  .  I took the list and made it a little easier to know your options.

Hey Internet, your co-father —or, the Architect?— was doing some math and talking about you last night on +The Colbert Report. Take a look as +vint cerf poses the question “What makes you think that you are not in the matrix”?

My friend  +Brian McBarron  and his company  +Reality Foil, LLC   making this awesome game. Parents of kids who love Minecraft should totally back this!!  Heck -- anyone who likes to create, build, and love the idea of a fully customizable world with an expanded metaverse should. Also -- the story that goes with it? Written by none other than  +Joshua Evans ! Even more reason to back a great project!! :) Can't wait to play!

This is a must watch. This is the serious side of the ice bucket challenge.

15 years ago we placed the largest server offer in our history: 1680 servers, packed into the now infamous "corkboard" racks that packed four small motherboards onto a single tray. (You can see some preserved racks at Google in Building 43, at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, and at the American Museum of Natural History in DC, http://americanhistory.si.edu/press/fact-sheets/google-corkboard-server-1999.)  

At the time of the order, we had a grand total of 112 servers so 1680 was a huge step.  But by the summer, these racks were running search for millions of users.  In retrospect the design of the racks wasn't optimized for reliability and serviceability, but given that we only had two weeks to design them, and not much money to spend, things worked out fine.

BTW the four white pins in the forefront are the reset buttons for the four servers, and the disks are mounted on a plexiglass board which lies on top of the board (not attached -- there was no time to design a proper bracket).

I've had the Fra Diablo and the Fried Fish during lent. Both were very good. My wife had the St. Patricks Day special and it was also delicious. If your looking for a nicer place to eat in the area and don't mind spending ~$20 a plate this is a good choice.
