I got a Note 8.0 for Christmas and of course want to root it with CM11. The only guides I can find are Windows centric. I use Linux Mint 15. Does anyone know of a guide to root the device using just Linux?

Just checked my Gmail spam box for the first time in a while. To my utter {lack of} surprise, I have email from Salma Hayek, Sophia Vergera, Scarlett Johannsen and more. They're all so concerned about the length of my penis. I guess then I should be concerned too, but find my motivation somewhat lacking.

C'mon, G+, there is something seriously wrong with the rating system used in "Local". When a fast food joint, despite being deemed good, can get a higher overall rating than a 3-star restaurant serving quality food, you have to realize that something is wonky in Local Land.

Despite the fact that such ratings can easily be gamed, and it's all subjective anyway, there must be some other way to let people rate their local businesses that would more accurately reflect overall quality than a simple number rating. Maybe look at Yelp to see what they're doing.

I've really enjoyed watching how FNX (First Nations Experience) has grown over the past year that I've been watching it on broadcast TV in Los Angeles. Today there was a cooking show called Primal Grille amid the documentaries and dramas! Niow, if I can just get my fry bread technique down pat ...

+Li Gardner I'll probably open up a real author's blog, once I sell the book, since agents and publishers these days (even the traditional ones) want you to also market yourself on top of their own efforts. Oh, are you going to be home in June? Aidan's graduating from USCS on June 15, and we're coming up for a few days and we'd like to see you and Carla if we can arrange it.

Did anyone else notice last night that NBC portrayed the women's gymnastic team as The Avengers a few times in their promos and bumpers? Costumes and stances nearly identical to the movie poster (or any generic superhero poster).

C'mon, NBC. The Olympics are interesting and fun and entertaining, but there's no need to make false superheros out of our athletes. They are strong and capable in their own rights without all the hype.

Story
Tagline
YA/SF Author and Novitiate Raconteur
Introduction
I'm a minor league SF author who last published under a nom de plume in the Ice Ages (the 1980s), and who is now gratefully and perhaps even somewhat gracefully returning to the fold.

I am currently finishing up a young adult, post apocalyptic novel called The Sentinel's Son, which I hope to conventionally publish Real Soon Now.

Though I do already have a publishing track record, as dusty as it may be at the moment, you just never know about these things, so fingers crossed and full speed ahead.
Bragging rights
I'm not sure this is something to brag about, but I did publish about fifteen eminently forgettable novels, albeit under other names, way back when. I also wrote a slew (well, almost an entire slew, anyway) of magazine articles, and slightly over a million words as a journalist and news photographer. Hmm, all that newsprint just may have ended up lining your bird's cage. What a thought. I wrote and maintained the original Wine (WIne is Not an Emulator or WINdows Emulator, depending on who you ask) FAQ for the Linux community in the 1990s, till I turned it over to WineHQ.
