Oldest is at a game dev camp this week, and the other three are spending some time this afternoon checking out Code.org. It turns out this site is just about everything friendly, as it's currently being used on an Android tablet, a Chromebook, and a MacBook over here.

+Russell Holly My son's friends all bring their devices when they come over.  It's like MicroCenter in my home sometimes.

Xbox One folks, prepare your wallets.
Microsoft's Ultimate Xbox Sale was supposed to begin on July 7, but it appears a number of Xbox One games are already discounted for paid Xbox Live Gold members. The list below shows the US sales prices for the games, but your region will likely have different prices. Xbox One: Fary Cry 4 - $24 - Xbox One Store Titanfall Deluxe Edition - $12 - Xbox One Store The Telltale Games...

Meanwhile on the PS4 we will be lucky if the PSN doesn't go down 12 times before this sale ends lol

"Dad can we watch Agents of Smash?"

I think I'm allergic.

"You watched last time..."

Yeah and I was sick all day.

"We watched at night."

Oh.

Kids want more Naruto, but Torin is too young to read fast enough for the subtitled version to be enjoyable.

+Hulu​ has all of Season 1, 3, and 4 dubbed for Shippuden, but none of Season 2.

Amazon has Season 2, but not through Prime. It'd cost me $80 for this one season the way they have things priced.

Crunchroll has all of it, but only subtitled.

First ever attempt at making burnt ends. Four hours in the smoker (cherry wood chips) and 20 minutes in the pan. Seasoned with +Ray Walters​ rub cut with Old Bay.

Not bad at all.

This, by the way, is how a phone with overheating issues behaves. See if you can spot the difference in the review. 
 
Plus or Minus: Sony's high-end handset for 2015 is part spectacular flagship, part disappointing compromise.
Plus or Minus: Sony's high-end handset for 2015 is part spectacular flagship, part disappointing compromise. The quick take The latest Sony flagship is a decent phone set back by hardware wonk and some wrongheaded design decisions. While the core experience is good, the Xperia Z3+ loses points for thermal issues, particularly when using the camera, and battery life that's outpaced...

Yes, I'm aware my Skype account was recently compromised. It has been dealt with. Thanks to everyone who brought it to my attention quickly.

I had my Skype account compromised and the person who took it over put credit on it.
I got Microsoft to close the account down and the credit was lost.

Random Sunday thoughts.

Weird feeling just now, a simultaneous sense of bewilderment at how quickly this year has gone by and the notion that I've only been at the new job for six months. Feels like I've been there longer, but at the same time where the hell has this year gone?

It feels good to be in an environment where I feel like I'm constantly improving. I'm increasingly happy with the work I'm doing, and the projects I've got planned for the next two months are going to be on a level I've never had the resources to pull off before. I'm also eventually going to finish assembling my next book, hoping that happens sooner rather than later but it's not easy to squeeze it into the schedule right now.

Kids are still asleep, which almost never happens. Two nights of late fireworks in a row was a lot for them to deal with. They've been all over the place the last couple of weeks, we've never had a Summer schedule quite this busy. Might just be me being selfish, but I'm really glad my family is all in one place today. We're just going to chill, and that's going to be good for all of us I think.

Need to get the bike fixed this afternoon, and I need a helmet. Even if I'm just doing rides around the block every morning, I need something. Need to be more active. Have to keep this positive progress going, especially with how much better I feel having ditched caffeine and sodas. I still feel that buzzing in the back of my brain when I see or am offered something sugary, but it's nice knowing I don't need any of it.

Anyway, back to the world.

Story
Tagline
I write things.
Introduction
I accidentally became a tech blogger, who then accidentally became an Author. Or something. Maybe. I'm never quite sure one way or the other. Hi.

If you're here for the writer bits, I cover mobile tech primarily. Sometimes I just pick stuff up and go with it though, there's really no rhyme or reason to it. 

My posts will also include the random thoughts of a Husband and Father of three. I won't bother to convince you we are the same person. 
Bragging rights
I will try anything twice. Once to see if it is a bad idea, and once more just to be absolutely certain it was a bad idea.

Everything about the food at this place was amazing. The Bang Bang Shrimp, the Crab Pompano, and the fantastic coconut creme pie for desert was perfect. I will absolutely be returning to this restaurant.
