2017 prediction:

Among the "anti-regressive" pundits I follow, some shamelessly accommodated or even courted Donald Trump / his followers / his election, like Dave Rubin or Carl "Sargon of Akkad" Benjamin. Others, like Sam Harris, have clearly opposed Trump, even at the cost of supporting Hillary Clinton while despising her.

Prediction: this year won't be over before the people in the first group are forced to make a big about-face – or maybe come out of the closet as conservatives. Meanwhile the people in the second group will be just fine, no 'splainin' needed.

Check out this podcast featuring LeVar Burton in the end.
The man who collected too much data, cyborgs who want to make their body-hardware mainstream, robots that rebuild your hairline and a conversation with Lieutenant Commander Geordi La Forge aka LeVar Burton.

We should normally avoid politics in this community, but this is an obvious exception. Virtually the entire Star Trek "crew" have endorsed this. (I guess only/mostly the Americans? I don't see Patrick Stewart in the list despite being vociferously anti-Trump, but he's English.)

Of course in the actual Trek universe, I have no doubt some characters like Gul Dukat would endorse Trump. ;-)

Lula não amava Dilma que não amava Cunha que não amava ninguém.

Dilma foi impedida, Cunha foi atrás, Lula por enquanto foge da cadeia.

"Compiling kernels"? In the 80's we didn't have kernels, just the BIOS and DOS... or some 8-bit ROM with even more primitive system services.
Warning: this comic occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors). BTC 1FhCLQK2ZXtCUQDtG98p6fVH7S6mxAsEey ...

Speak for yourself, some of us were writing Unix device drivers in the 80s.

1970s: Hey let's invent protected memory so one app doesn't crash, disturb or attack everything else

1990s-2000's: Hey let's have a huge kernel, run big device drivers there, give userland apps low-level control of things like GPUs, so everything runs fast

2016: Hey let's run big dangerous apps like browsers inside a virtual machine so it doesn't crash, disturb or attack everything else

Linus takes lot of blame for that but as a leader of his project, it was the right strategic choice. Performance was seen as a critical competitive issue, also architecture design was always a weak point of the Bazaar model. They never had success creating a modern filesystem, or a stable kernel ABI for drivers, or much significant OS innovation in 25 years, not because Linus stubbornly opposed good ideas but because he knew his community wouldn't succeed doing these things; he couldn't compete with the OS research / engineering teams from MS, Sun and the like in their own game. So when you can't do that, you make a new game and you win, like Linus did. Unfortunately this puts us in a world where infrastructure is dominated by 1970's tech and we keep piling layers of hacks on it for mobile devices, cloud servers, etc.

Any recommendation of parental control app that supports Windows & Android, can time-limit app usage, has Safe Mode protection, and can log browser history on Windows? After spending some time testing several apps including Qustodio, NetNanny, MMGuardian and ScreenTime, none of them have all these features together. :-(

I chose MMGuardian in the end, it was the most complete option in the end. But still waiting for the promised per-day time limit -- blocked time windows are good but not enough, exactly because I don't want to micromanage the kids' play time so I'd rather give them a budget of time they can use in any reasonable hours.

At least at night (when I guess all staff is temps), drive-through service is awful, they get something wrong in my order some 1/3 of the time. Living in the region for 5 years and this is constant, it's a management problem.

I've taken my car to D&L for inspection last month, failed because I had had a recent battery discharge that wiped the OBD. But since they only found that by the end of the work, I had to pay for the full service. So after putting some miles in the car I took the car again for inspection, now it passed with flying colors and for my surprise the re-inspection was courtesy, I was only billed for the sticker. Fast and courteous service too.
