The blur on the left was a little bit of rain starting to fall on me and my bicycle.

Speaking of app development, I'd love to have someone look into a Sarah Palin Word Salad Stimulator. Someone who can analyze her speech patterns and interject any sentence - a marriage proposal, weather forecast etc - into a gotcha-folky-jesus-guns-founding fathers-freedom-bible-christianity-America-muslim-nazi-holocaust-obamacare kind of entertainment.

Rule #1: never close the door on a camera without both a fully-charged battery and an empty SD card.

Been there, done that, and usually without any of the spare SD cards I often carry, but often with a fully charged battery and a fully charged spare....

Public Safety Notice. Read this if you do anything outdoors where you push through weeds. The long and short of it is that if you get this plant's sap on you, it destroys your resistance to sunburn for a time. The only treatment is to keep the affected area out of sunlight. Otherwise you will get a blistering sunburn.

Diana Blass has just raised her street cred. It takes no small amount of courage to walk through a railroad tunnel that isn't being maintained. And her socks gave their all to this story.

I'm in NYC. I know (almost) more about the rail trails in this state then in the rest of the country. You'll need to be more specific there. But okay.

Great Job Everyone! We’ve almost reached our $2million stretch goal!  THANK YOU! We’ve been working full throttle the past week to get the USB-C version ready before reaching that stretch goal. This is actually very important to us, because we want to ensure the USB-C version is completely feasible before releasing it. Below, you’ll see the USB-C version in action. The phone in the video is a Letv X600, one of the first phones that support USB-C...

They talk about that in their FAQ. There are other products that use magnetic electrical fasteners on USB cords. They have a link to one of them.

I like the fact that it gives you the total time as well as the time that you're actually riding. One of the reasons that I bought the gear fit was that it has a cycling mode but the timer automatically doesn't stop if you take a break.

I have stayed at the Bawa for many years now, probably a total of 2 months. I have always found the staff helpful. The rooms are nicely equipped, at least the newly renovated ones are. And they are obviously reinvesting in the building, because they are installing aluminum cladding on the entire building.
