+Maklin Deckard Last time around, the leap second knocked a few reservation systems offline for several hours during the day, because system clocks were out of sync by a second.

Does anyone know where in the Forgotten Relams, the Spelljammer portal of Yeoman's Loft or Farenway is located?

as far as old games go, am looking for a 3 set card game.  Nuclear War, Nuclear Proliferation and Nuclear Escalation.   Loaned a couple 3 cards to someone who wanted the pictures for an art project...they lost them.   So kinda screwed since it is long out of print.  They keep mentioning a kickstarter to re-release, and if the maker does that, I will pay to get a set.

If I stumble across the Spelljammer set of rules, I will let you know.

I hope that Public Education get a hold of this and make sure they're using it to their fullest with Free and Reduced Students.  As more Public Schools move to a 1:1 technology format, this will be very useful to students at home.
Today the FCC voted in favor of updating its Lifeline program to include broadband. This would mean that households surviving on low incomes would be able to receive help paying for a broadband connection. It might not be as important as electricity or water, but having a broadband connection is seen as being all but essential these days.

Now, this looks like a useful little tool...
Windows: Whether you’re migrating to a new computer or doing a clean install, life is easier when you take all your settings and tweaks with you. If you don’t want to do a full backup and restore, CloneApp backs up settings for the most popular Windows programs so you can restore them later.

I have to admit, I thought it was pretty cool.
The 1980s Marvel Super Heroes RPG was well-designed and was supported by a ton of supplements and adventures. But the greatest thing about it was the FASERIP chart, the one chart that could tell you once and for all who would win in a fight, Thor or the Hulk.

Disney does a turnabout after an uproar and cancels their tech worker layoffs and switch to outsourced replacements.

Hoorah for the good-guys! (Yeah, don't ask me who the 'good-guys' are, it's harder to tell these days.) :-/

I can see how the new iOS 9 will help the iPad make a great leap forward into being the only device someone might need for daily computing tasks, but the fact that the key feature of side-by-side multitasking requires the iPad Air or one of the newer iPad mini's aggravates the stuffing out of me.

The iPad 4th Gen is left out in the cold.  I understand needing to drive sales of hardware...but this seems rough.  Oh, the iPad 2 and up will support iOS 9, just not all the really useful features.

I would like to see what the adoption rate is for the iPad 2/3/4 on iOS 9, since you don't get the key features.  Maybe we'll find out at the end of the year, or perhaps in the first quarter of next year.

Ever since Microsoft first showed off multi-window support in the tablet mode for Windows 8, it's been expected that Apple would eventually follow suit with a true multitasking mode of its own....

I am going to surmise that from Apple's point of view, the processing issue is either related to the 32-bit vs 64-bit that is the breakpoint between the iPad 4 and iPad (5) Air (1).  And it might not be that it doesn't actually run on the iPad 4, it may be that Apple doesn't like how it runs on the iPad 4.  A bad experience spreads like wildfire through word of mouth.
