At first I was pretty creeped out by this one, but then it kinda went all Home Alone and I laughed a couple times. Kinda took away from the whole horror perspective.
Directed by Jennifer Kent. With Essie Davis, Noah Wiseman, Daniel Henshall, Hayley McElhinney. A single mother, plagued by the violent death of her husband, battles with her ...

Who of my very few programming followers is fluent with the HTTP spec? I think I may have come across a bug in both OkHttp and java.net.URL in Java 7 (I haven't checked others). It started as an issue with Glide, but then progressed from there. Basically, I can't get the Content-Length header if a Vary header is set. Anybody familiar with this one?

Am I the only one that thought this film was hugely overrated?

My internet with +Cox Communications​ has been terribly intermittent for entire past week. I've even replaced the modem and tested all cables in the house (and no, power cycling does nothing). What's the deal? Sometimes it drops in and out every 5-15 minutes for a few hours, and other times it's just down totally for a longer time. The modem often doesn't even have a reading for the signal.

Feeling a bit ripped off here, and I refuse to pay for a technician since I know it's not a problem on my end.

+Cox Communications Thanks. I'll do that as soon as it happens again. It seems to be holding since this last outage. Was there a known outage anywhere in my area? Zip 68128.

Glide 3.6.0 made some improvements. However, unfortunately using OkHttp with WebP is still a disaster for earlier versions of Android. The commit associated with my bug report contains the fix, but looking through the release, it appears that the OkHttp integration library didn't quite take all of the fix.

It's just a shame it was a framework bug to begin with.

+Michael Panzer I think they're just concerned with the overhead involved. There's a point to that with certain incredibly slow disks, but I don't think most people would even notice.

When reading a Grave of the Fireflies review, this hit me particularly hard.

Until my daughter was born, my own death was the scariest thing in the world.
It's a surreal and almost unacceptable concept, the idea of ones own mortality, and until that life changing day back in October of 2007 it was the most haunting and unsettling thought I could have. When I heard her first cry, when I saw her tiny face and hands and feet, when I held her for the first time, nothing was more beautiful and yet terrifying at the same time. She was a person that would live her life in the same world I had occupied for 23 years at that point, a world full of hate and anger and judgement and bigotry and violence. A world where a day doesn't go by without someone committing unthinkable actions to an innocent life simply trying to go about their day, a final breathe taken but unappreciated because in a just world there would be millions more to follow.
I had only known her for minutes, and yet I was more in love than I had ever been before. Any selfish concerns I had quickly melted away, but what replaced them was even more troubling than before. I was literally holding her precious life in my hands and from that moment forward I have been petrified to let my guard down, to let go and leave her vulnerable to an unforgiving world.

My own feelings aren't quite as poetic or selfless if I'm being 100% honest, but as far as mortality goes, I'd say it's pretty damn close. The concerns of my own mortality extend a little further to "but the boy needs a father", so I'd say there's simply a new motivation for self-preservation. It's a whole new level of scary, and for completely different reasons.

+Michael Kuechenmeister it's a phenomenal movie, but it's very heavy. $10 is a steal though. Worth at least three times what you paid for it.

So I published that watch face, and it got me thinking…

/cc +Ian Lake because this is all your fault :-P
Android lets you mash apps together. When you do, cool things start to happen.

Can't believe they let that slogan slide, but the "real" Bud Light commercial at the end is flippin' hilarious.

I swear manufacturers design their shit to break down immediately after the warranty expires. The latest victim? My cable modem. When did I buy it? Mid-April last year.

The electronic gremlins are out to get me.

I didn't have one with WiFi. That's just a separate thing that's been failing me on a yearly basis. The modem was the Motorola SB6141.
