For anybody who stays on top of such things, is now a good time to consider upgrading CPU+MB?  I can never stay on top of when Intel/AMD are about to make major changes, etc.

Generally speaking I'd want to upgrade CPU+MB+RAM for under $300 (if I can keep my existing 16GB DDR3-1600 RAM that would be a significant savings).  I don't mind paying an extra $50 if it would drop my average power use by 100W or something like that as well.  

Useful features would include low heat, ECC RAM, and as many SATA ports as possible (I'm currently using 9 ports).  I also want decent quality - I'd rather pay $20 for a motherboard that isn't junk than to try to find the cheapest MB and load it up with SATA expansion cards just to spend an extra $40 on the CPU and come in under budget.  If I stick with AM3 I guess I can keep my current MB, which is also a factor.

I've tended to buy AMD as they're often the best options at this price point, but I've been frustrated with heat generation and power use in the my current system.  

Thoughts?

Gotta love those government-sponsored family values.

This sounds like Dear Abbey for scumbags...
Today’s question asks if it would be advisable to divorce a second spouse in order to maximize benefits. The answer reviews the rules for collecting divorced spousal benefits and considers how being able to choose from multiple exes while filing can allow more possible ways to increase benefits.

And thus the politicians, creating a system workable only for saints, turned their populace into bent men, selling their integrity for a bigger slice of the pie.

A recent survey finds that over 80 percent of Americans support "mandatory labels on foods containing DNA." This survey result is a particularly blatant example of the problem of widespread political and scientific ignorance.

Everybody keeps comparing #systemd  to #sysvinit , but looking at some of the goals of systemd, perhaps  #busybox  is a more appropriate comparison.

Think about it...

+Google - you invented this great +Android feature where any app can register intents and any other app can use those intents to share things.  It makes the whole OS far more integrated than some of your competitors.

You also invented this app for #googleplus which completely fails to take advantage of this feature.

So, when I was browsing on google+ on my phone and found a post I wanted to comment on later on my PC, I had to:
1.  Click link.  That copied the URL to the clipboard.
2.  Hit home.
3.  Open Gmail
4.  Compose a new email to myself.
5.  Paste the link into the body of the email and hit send.

Why can't there just be a share option in Google+ which lets me compose an email with a URL directly, etc?  

For that matter, why can't I share an email from Gmail.  Does every app on Android support the share function EXCEPT the ones made by Google?

Please fix this...

+Andy Dalton Still more work than doing the same thing in Feedly/etc, and it is also limited to what Google+ supports.  That won't work for sending a link via SMS, etc.  The whole point of the Android intent functionality is that it is very flexible and works with any app you have installed.  Maybe I want to save the Google+ post to evernote, etc.

Another thing you can't do is create a calendar event from an email in the gmail app, or save an email in Evernote, Google Docs, etc.  If they supported the Share function in Android that would be trivial.

Unless they had agreed in advance to terms for terminating the agreement, it seems likely to me that this could cost #cyanogenmod a pretty penny. I'd think promissory estoppels would cover any costs #oneplus incurred preparing for the India launch, and they might get punitive damages or some part of their lost anticipated profits.
 
Very interesting read.. Cyngn sure looks like "the asshat here" as +Corey M​​ said..

Odd, this month +T Mobile​ seems to be counting my Google Play Music use against my LTE data cap. So much for carrying over my data this month...

For anyone interested... I'll try to get a better recording in two weeks...
 
Here is Rich's PLUG North presentation on systemd from January 13, 2015.  The ending was accidentally cut off so when Rich gives the talks at Central or West I'll get that up.

In addition, his slide are here:

Seems like my Nexus 10 has had a hardware failure of some kind (boot loops on stock firmware with full wipe). I might actually be completely Nexus-free.

Got that with Nexus 7. Full wipe helped but few days later it occured again. I suspect bad flash memory... they replaced whole motherboard.

This is right on. Sometimes it feels like Google still hasn't figured out tablets.
When it comes to tablets, Google doesn't even follow its own design guidelines.

Their homemade Alfredo is excellent! Great food and service, and very reasonable prices. Would definitely recommend.

I have no idea how we lucked out to have these guys local and not in the middle of NYC with a six month waiting list. Seriously, the food is that good and can be recommended without reservations. I highly recommend the tasting option - I've had it twice and it is always amazing. But, you really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Don't expect to get in and out in less than two hours and you'll definitely want reservations, though they're often available same-day. The experience really is about the food so take your time and savor everything! If you're into fancy carpets and decor you might find the venue a bit sparse, but they aren't skimping when it comes to the quality and taste of anything that goes into your mouth.

Food was good by buffet standards and service was very prompt. Their sushi in particular was quite good, certainly better than typical buffet fare.
