Okay this was so good. As good as the first one definitely! There wasn't nearly as much gross out humor as I thought there'd be, the characters were fun, competent and delightfully awkward.

If you are at heart an anti-feminist then this movie is not for you. It's women power, anti-men the whole way. The villain, and Hemsworth roles both fit right into why you'll hate this movie.

But if on the otherhand you like women, then hell yeah this is awesome. I'm of the personal opinion that these 2 scientist characters, one engineer, and the horribly awefully stereotypical black lady are all in their own right really fun. Personally as a software developer and wannabe scientist myself I found Kate McKinnon's delivery of all the epic jargon fluid, on spot, and believable, and her awkward carefree antisocialness entirely endearing and super cute. She stole the show for me.

So you can ignore the obvious gender and racial stereotypes and have a good time with a decent story, or you can bring your personal internal biases into the theater with you and basically turn your movie ticket and free time into a heaping pile of hate and disgust, I'll leave that to you.
Experience the Ghostbusters movie in theatres everywhere on July 15, 2016.

I felt inspired to do some commentary on the idea that's been back and forth about if people should learn to code or not. Read my Medium post and find out where I think programming, and all jobs are going in the future.

Games are taking the place of movies in pop culture promotional material. This would be a spot that The Jungle Book or Zootopia should've had.

I just got #Windows Build 14316 as part of the Insider program. And yeah, it has #Ubuntu #Bash. It's the real shell, it's not a port. Literally I was able to type in "apt-get install firefox" and it came back with a whole host of packages I needed to install for Firefox to work, 61 actually taking up 133MB of disk space. I opted out, because there are priorities I need to do first. As you can see in the screenshot from the blog post, it automatically creates your Bash as a root user. This isn't Ubuntu or Debian style. When you create a Debian build you don't get a root user, you create your user and then you are an admin but only after you sudo and type in your password. You have to elevate yourself for each command. It's a proven method of making sure some kind of crazy applications or services don't get access to folders and systems that they shouldn't, even you. So I'll have to create a proper user account under Bash, make sure when it loads it only uses that account, and then see if I can remove the root "user". Doesn't look like running it as administrator makes a difference, you still get in as root. I feel like the user tools need to be linked better. Sudo should request your user's password to elevate to Windows Administrator, which could be aliased as root. That would be elegant.

It is still beta, there are some hoops to jump through to get to this stage, but it's still a really great start.
Hi everyone, Today we are releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14316 to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring. At Build 2016 last week, we shared new experiences and new opportunities we’re creat…

So a coworker was reading through the AirBnB javascript style guide, and was excited about ECMAScript 2015 and it's fat arrow notation => right up until he saw they suggested leaving out the braces in fat arrow anonymous function calls.

"If the function body consists of a single expression, omit the braces and use the implicit return. Otherwise, keep the braces and use a return statement."

[1, 2, 3].map(number => (
`As time went by, the string containing the ${number} became much ` +
'longer. So we needed to break it over multiple lines.'
));

He initially thought 'number' was the function name, but fat arrows are only for anonymous functions, so I had to explain him through his ambiguous confusion and now he's on my side as to why the fat arrow is a bad concept rife with opportunities for human illegibility. It looks to me like it was added in by someone who's a dedicated programmer and not someone who pays attention to human fallibility and it really needed a user experience person to be involved and explaining how it could be misunderstood, and really asking what problem it's trying to solve and why that is actually a problem.

Remember, programming is an act of managing complexity, and anything that can make your code clearer is a better thing, like typing out the word function, and using parenthesis and braces. Be safe in your programming, or later you'll come to regret it, and usually that happens at the worst and most stressful time.

Yet another play of the game, this one happened 0.5 seconds before the match was over however.

Of course I submitted Namey McNameFace. Someone had to do it.
#NameAndroidN. We're trying to decide what to name the next version of Android. Got any tasty ideas that start with the letter N? Submit. Sorry, something went wrong while trying to submit your suggestion. Please try again later. Need some inspiration? See how the pros work.

I need this on all browsers... This is something native mobile apps can do but that web mobile apps cannot. I feel like the browser should have ultimate control so that websites don't take over if it's on an unfocused tab, or if the browser is in the background, or even allow the user to make sure with a setting that websites can't control the backlight themselves for more than like a minute.

For more specifics, I'm in a situation where scanning barcodes off a mobile device screen works better when the screen is full brightness. I'm hoping to be able to replicate in the browser everything that you can do in native apps, and this is currently the one last hold out... at least on #Chrome for +Android.
Indicates how bright the screen's backlight is, on a scale from 0 (very dim) to 1 (full brightness); this value is a double-precision float.

I got into the #overwatch  beta from +Blizzard Entertainment  this weekend, and normally I'm really not a first person shooter person, I suffer from pretty intense #DIMS  or Doom Induced Motion Sickness. The idea being that when playing or watching Doom, Quake, or most first person shooters my brain can discern the difference between what my eyes are telling me on screen, and what my inner ear says is actually happening. Invariably this causes nausea the most intense scenario's this happens in about a minute. So I've shied away from FPS games, the closest I can physically get is to play Tomb Raider with it's dynamic floating camera view, or to occasionally get into first person view in Skyrim or Fallout for a sniper shot.

But I wanted to see what Blizzard's take on it would be and it's solid. I played a full day Saturday no nausea involved. So here's the rest of my first impressions.

I really liked the style and character of #Tracer , but I was pretty sure that I wouldn't be able to play her, I tend to like the patient long game of a sniper, so my initial thought was #Widowmaker , which I wasn't terrible at playing, I also rather enjoyed #Pharah  with her rocket launcher and it's splash damage. After I got a feel for them though and for how the flow of the game went, I thought I should try out Tracer. So I went into the solo training mode against the bots, and practiced a bit with her abilities, then after about 20 minutes I joined a team against the AI in practice mode, and low and behold, against the crappy AI I wasn't too bad either. I still made mistakes, like sticky bombing and in a panic not getting away in time and detonating myself. Interestingly though that was more of my deaths than it was from other players. So I feel like Tracer's small size and extreme mobility actually really do lend themselves to my usual MO, which is driving small fast cars, flying small agile ships, and so Tracer is right in line with that. It helps that if I'm in over my head her recall skill backs up time for her including your health. It probably also helps that my workstation is pretty good, so I have the game running with a fairly high level of detail in addition to running at 2560x1600 and still getting between 60 and 70 fps. Nice.

I feel like at this point Blizzard's issues with the game in it's beta state aren't about performance, or even balance for a change, but with the servers and their capacity/reliability/stability. There were a lot of times in between games where I was kicked out of a queue, or I was told it "failed to connect to game." It immediately retried though and usually it was under a minute before I got into the character selection screen for the next game. I dread for fans and for Blizzard what happens when they get to release, probably similar to what happened to WoW, and Diablo 3, where it will be a terrible fiasco of overloaded servers, and failed logins. 

All that said, I had a blast. Blizzard of course did an outstanding job of catering to new players, and people new to the genre of competitive FPS games. There is one part however that they can't really introduce you do and that's the frenetic pace and craziness of FPS games. They move very fast, and you need to move fast with them or the rest of your team will suffer. I will however look forward to at least a few more weekends of playing Overwatch and seeing where this one goes.

Better than In & Out, Five Guys, Mooyah, and Smash Burger, and cheaper too. It's not gourmet like The Counter, but it's less than half the price too. Will come again.

A superb example of what a local bike shop should be, the store is clean and sharp, and the staff are absolutely brilliant. You'll feel right at home among riders of all types if you stop in and hang out.

If you often find someone else deciding what should be on your burger, pickles, onions, whatever, and want to really get it done right, then The Counter is your place. With a checklist of available ingredients that you select, there is virtually an unlimited number of combinations for what makes your burger. Oh wait, are you on a no-bread diet? That's fine! Replace your bun with a bed of mixed greens, and you all of a sudden have a hearty salad with all the same selection of ingredients, which is staggering for a burger or even a salad. I won't attempt to list them here, but having a crazy variety of diets on our team, The Counter is one of the few places where we can all get something perfect for us. The only request I make while I'm there is that they'd offer a quarter pound burger, since the smallest third of a pound after cooking could suffice to serve as 2 meals. Still I find myself pounding down my burger every time they are just so good. I recommend the pretzel bun, and avocado with garlic aoli sauce.

Other than lacking my favorite bike brand, this is a brilliant bike shop. Looks just like any high end bike shop in in the US. Great staff, very helpful, I'll be back often as long as I'm in Cape Town. Also they're not closed, they're just a block further west on Rothesay Place.
