New Incantation To Repair Cellular Service:

I hadn't had trouble with cellular data and voice for months. Inexplicably, even with full bars, cellular data and voice stopped working. Wifi was fine, FWIW.

After trying quite a few things, I came up with this incantation that fixes the issue. If you are having trouble, you can give it a shot:

Make sure cellular data is turned on
Make sure cellular data limits are all off
Make sure wifi is off
Turn on airplane mode
Turn off airplane mode
Reboot the phone
Give it a few minutes then test.
Turn wifi back on
Test again
If it doesn't work, call project fi support.

My notes are also here.



About this wiki page: These are my notes on project Fi. I am an early adopter of Fi for a variety of reasons I have outlined elsewhere. My short take is that Fi is interesting, important, and worth adopting during the beta if you can tolerate daily reboots. It's beta software right now ...

Interesting article - terrible examples, but some really good points made.

One general point that it makes that I like:

"If you can’t differentiate between systems and analytical thinking, we should approach any conclusions you draw about a system as vastly complex as the economy with extreme caution."

The self-styled brightest minds of our generation don't seem to want to touch one of the greatest challenges of our time.

I've been switching from sitting to standing when typing every 30 min (or when I feel tired) for years. I feel like its a great way to manage back pain and maintain something of a healthy posture. Probably less productive than sitting, but I'm trying to play the long game.

Just found this New Yorker cartoon and it hits on something. I do "feel" more productive standing, but I know I knock out more stuff when I'm sitting. They lend themselves to different tasks for me. Something that I am sure is an individual thing. I might reboot pomodoro technique for December to see if I can find patterns.

Inspiring story for anyone who believes science is a force for good.

I just found the blog of Matt Might.

Got there via this incredible story, with so many quotable quotes that I don't know where to start:

http://matt.might.net/articles/tenure/




Even before I got tenure, folks have told me they're “looking forward to an academic advice post on tenure.” From how to get a Ph.D. to monthly resolutions for grad students, I've found it easy to write academic posts on just about every topic. Except this one. I got tenure over a year ago, ...

Interesting data point - the deep oceans are buffering heat generated by greenhouse effects (95+% of it) - possibly to be released on later generations. It hardly seems possible, but the article appears to suggest that some artificial mechanism for converting that energy to useful work would be preferable to the alternative - hot surface temps and storms.

This TPP thing is a disaster. It's so bad that even the governments that are ratifying it will almost certainly suffer enough from it that they will gut it over time. But that might take years.

If you want to take a chance on internet activists to prevent a whole lot of unnecessary suffering, this is not a bad place to put five bucks (or five BTC). I found I had a lot of little bitcoin wallets laying about and consolidated them into a donation. Check your wallets.

This is nice to see in a whole bunch of ways. Might stop by and see if they need any help.
This group of geriatric engineers probably can’t stop global warming—but maybe they can cool down a few hot spots

CERT compromised. But we knew that.

Did Carnegie Mellon Attack Tor for the FBI? https://www.schneier.com/blog/archives/2015/11/did_carnegie-me.html

I'm not sure how much material this measures. I assume a piece the size of the aperature. It might detect heavy metals, if you get lucky or take a whole lot of samples. That would be useful.

Pocket spectrometer lets you measure the molecular makeup of nearly anything http://inhabitat.com/worlds-first-pocket-molecular-sensor-measures-the-chemical-makeup-of-everything/
The SCiO is the world's first spectrometer that fits in a pocket, and it can measure the molecular fingerprint of just about anything you see.

Introduction
I am fond of those photons reflected from cute things.  Sadly, few of my non-animal friends supply these.

I can fix or destroy most things in about an hour, although I often avoid this.

Dana Street is a Community Center that happens to be a coffee shop. The *people* in the local Mountain View community are the only reason to go there. I have been going here for 20 years. Nine out of ten times I go, I have an interesting, intelligent conversation with someone. This is how you visit Dana Street: 1) Have nothing to do 2) Order whatever, it doesn't matter, it's all average fare. That's not what you are there for. Joke with staff, they are usually responsive to that. 3) Sit with other people, hopefully at the big table or outside at a table, so you can chat. 4) Strike up a conversation, get to know them. They are interesting. 5) If there are musicians playing, enjoy them. If you are a musician, bring an instrument and play around with it outside, someone will probably join you. Rinse. Repeat.
