Really Arizona? Trump? Are you people paying any attention?

I thought New Zealand was looking good last week. Looking like my new home at this rate.

There was nothing for me to vote on. I'm registered independent.

"Hot Tuna" at Al Brown's Best Ugly Bagels in Auckland. Also got to try an array of dishes at Federal. Amazing food (and I'm rarely impressed by food).

I'm going to miss New Zealand badly.

Did I mention we took "Most Innovative Company" from SXSW and in a few weeks, we head to Coachella to do a production there?

The most amazing meatballs ever! Loving Auckland more by the moment.

Feels like the best of Dan Diego, Austin and San Francisco all wrapped up in one.

Going to Auckland City Limits, Coachella or Stage Coach? I'll be at all doing a production and would love to say high if you'll be at either.

Be sure to look for the VR booth at Coachella and the "Coachella VR" app (available in a few days, free for all) on Play Store, iTunes and Oculus Home.

+Thomas Tenkely Still here in the PHX Valley? I've got a Sager Laptop I can travel with that should run it fine (GTX980m, 16GB RAM, i7 CPU). So far I can't say that I'm more impressed with the experience than with the Vive, but I can say that it was easier to get running and is FAR easier to hop into. Where my DK1, DK2 and Vive didn't stay connected, I think this will. The resolution is still lacking when you look at distant objects, but not horribly so and when looking at more near objects, I'd say it's crossed the "sufficient" threshold. Framerate is of course incredible. Lack of touch controllers combined with limited range make it a different experience than the Vive of course and I'm not sure yet if any other features are redeeming in that respect, but overall it's far more polished, lightweight and comfortable.

Aranui Cave, New Zealand

Amazing experience! Photos to follow. Very friendly staff and lots of value. I recommend Aranui cave, Ruakuri tour. Demi is a great guide and ensured I had plenty of time to shoot.

Another day behind the wheel (and one close-call on a round-about) and I got the hang of it pretty well. Amazing roads too (look for the video I'll post soon).

"Vegemite sandwich" ;)

It's very salty and reminds me of something, but I can't place it.

Ha ha. True though I was referring to the taste.

+Crystal Marshall Does the USN implement good practices in your field (in theory, one of the security benchmarks of the world)?

Really DoD? You guys STILL don't get it? Password that are overly restrictive and change too often are pointless because they MUST be recorded somewhere to be managed. Why not just just use the same criteria for login as we'll have to use every time we have to recover/reset the password due to it being forgotten and be done with it? Alternatively, implement certificate-based login, 2-factor or any other modern method that's still more secure than password?!

https://myaccess.dmdc.osd.mil

The PASSWORD must:
be at least 9 characters in length and no more than 20 characters in length
contain at least 1 UPPERCASE letters (A-Z)
contain at least 1 lowercase letters (a-z)
contain at least 1 number (0-9)
contain at least 1 of the following special characters: @ _ # ! & $ ` % * + ( ) . / , ;~ : { } | ?< > =

The PASSWORD CANNOT:
contain spaces
be one of your last 5 previous passwords
contain dictionary words

Your PASSWORD will expire in 150 days.

In the case of this website, non military spouses need access and as of right now, dependents are not issued CAC cards

Story
Tagline
Man of many trades, master of very few. Father of 3, husband, entrepreneur, CTOx2, student, lover, US Marine, and more.
Introduction
I've been involved in I.T. at least part-time since 1993 and full-time at an enterprise level since 1999 (USMC warehouse management systems). Currently I'm involved in virtually every aspect of maintaining a production network and related system critically responsible for $1m+ of business revenue (to include software/DB architecture and development). If my current venture doesn't pan out, I hope to find a future with Google, perhaps as a Developer Advocate where my vast knowledge-base could be well utilized and I would be exposed to fresh ideas (I love learning and sharing). I'm a true but tolerable INTJ (see Jung - Myers-Briggs or Keirsey Temperament). As is the case with most INTJ's, I don't respond well to people being mentally lazy, but I'm not antagonistic to the extent that INTJ's are stereotyped to be.
Bragging rights
Father of 3 amazing children (3rd arrives very soon), US Marine, CTO vantage.tv, CTO AZPrep and Happy to be alive!
Education

Their hours said they were open till 6pm. Drove all the way from S. Chandler, was signing the waiver and THEN the employee who greeted me said, "you're here for *****'s party right?" I said no, then she said, "I'm sorry, but ...." then "We tell people on our website to call first" as if that someone excused the situation or made my kids feel better. I had to tell me 3 kids that we had to leave and it doesn't take much to imagine how a 5yo and 3yo reacted. Even my infant who'd been sitting in the van for 35 mins was upset to be getting right back in. Finding them closed would have been one thing, but this is inexcusable and they won't be seeing if again. The issue and response makes if very clear that management is poor and given my nervousness to begin with, I would now have to seriously question the rest of the idea (safety, cleanliness, etc).

Don't know what all the complaints are about. It's not like they're greedy. As a veteran, i paid $18 for my wife and myself, then my 3 children, 5 and under were free. For that, we had lots of safe viewing options at various points on the crater rim, insider and out as well as the museum. It's a nice facility and the staff different harass me even 25 minutes after closing as i got amazing shots of the sunset. I'll go again i expect.
