I've been having consistent issues with notifications. I'm not getting them at all - have unistalled, reinstalled, checked to make sure notifications are turned on in Android app settings. I have a Moto X running latest version of Android.

Great post. I would add a surprising disappointment this year: AAA games. There just wasn't one single one of those that was a blast. Some really good, all left something to be desired. It seems this was the year of indie games.

It's possible to play 'adult' games with your kids if you do it right. I discuss Skyrim, but other games could be handled similarly.

Whenever I sit to play Skyrim, my daughter wants to join in. While watching, she's constantly asking to go and look for dragons. A 5 years old dragon hunter...

Has anyone had any luck installing the Atom text editor with Antergos? Several versions exist on AUR, but I've had no luck with them. This is a terrific editor with a devoted team updating it regularly, so it would be great to have it available in Antergos.
At GitHub, we’re building the text editor we’ve always wanted: hackable to the core, but approachable on the first day without ever touching a config file. We can’t wait to see what you build with it.

Thanks, Rob! Pretty hard to take a bad shot of something so beautiful on a picture perfect day...even with a cellphone camera. :-)

Delicious Cuban food with daily specials and helpful friendly staff. The owner is often on hand to explain ingredients used and offer advice for newcomers. Don't forget the café cubano (espresso sweetened with demerara sugar during brewing) as a finale.

Best donuts in Indianapolis, hands down. Customers, mostly regulars, line up out the door. Consistency is key. Donuts are always fresh, no matter the time of day.

Few local Thai restaurants make genuinely spicy "native Thai" dishes. This place does if you ask for it. Delicious.

Terrific concept, super friendly staff, and SCRUMPTIOUS food. Highly recommended, especially if you're looking for a twist on traditional Indian / Pakistani cuisine.
