Do you know what has turned out to be a fairly good use of an old tablet with a broken screen? ... 24/7 Minecraft PE server. I just wish I could allow more than 5 players at a time.

This is the last one, I swear. I am officially out of dark gray rocket engines, anyway.

Awesome. That does sound like something I could get into.

I'm just now coming off of a spaceship building kick. The final cockpit piece just arrived from +ToyPro today.

After dealing with the extortion tactics of my old registrar of almost 20 years I finally was able to wrestle my domain out of their grip and move it to #GoogleDomains . Now I just need free hosting directly from #GoogleDrive ...

The recently announced Dyson robotic vacuum doesn't sound so great so far. Maybe it will do a slightly better job on carpet than the Neato, but if you gave up carpet as we did, that's not going to be a selling point. I also don't quite see how using a panoramic camera is better than the much simpler LIDAR system that the Neato uses to map out it's path. I suppose a camera doesn't move and, therefore, may be more reliable over time but our Neato's spinning LIDAR hasn't yet failed in the 4 years that we've had it. Another thing that kills it for me is its much taller height. I suppose that's the price for better suction, but we always base new furniture purchases on whether "the robot" can fit underneath it. It's too early to pass complete judgement, but when my old Neato finally fails in a way I can't fix, I'm still going to be looking at the new +Neato Robotics BotVac series.

I just finished a 15-minute project to add wireless charging to my desk. Luckily, this Ikea desktop is strengthened with only a honeycomb of stiff paper. It was a quick (albeit not perfect) job to Dremel out the bottom and pull out the paper. I then just hot glued the charger to the top from underneath after removing the blue ring so it would be as close to the phone as possible.

*Bonus picture of the rig I built for my daughter's hand-me-down Nexus 4, since it can be tricky to position correctly.

But then what would you have to look forward to? It has been over an hour and I can't think of anything. :[

Seems like only yesterday. When, in fact, it was almost two years ago...

Look! No portals at GTS! 😨

I was wondering if that would be noticed. I'm pretty sure he said that several times a day.

This is getting a little frustrating. I suppose the battery percentage service is not updating correctly during a charge? Hopefully,  #ProjectVolta  will fix this...
