If you want to know what I do for a living, the answer is I fret. I spend my summers swapping Android phones every week, never finding one that does everything I need quite as well as I want it to....

+Stephen I can confirm that my siblings Apple products does not work well in my room where it's the lowest reception. This includes phones and laptops. While my Samsung note 4 and windows based laptop have no problem with connection.

For anyone in the UK, esp Milton Keynes area...
 
Shared from Neil "Captain Crash" Howell on Facebook :

URGENT APPEAL to any of my friends who live in the Bedford/Milton Keynes area. This is my daughter Kayla Vivienne Mae. She has gone missing this morning. She is 13 years old. She got as far as the school gates and then walked away. She went back home, got changed and then disappeared. If anyone, anyone at all in those area sees her please call me immediately on 07925 159989. Thank you.

On the topic of Alexa vs Google Home...

Wife: "Alexa, can you substitute baking soda for baking powder?"

Alexa: "Hmm, I'm not sure what you meant by that question."

Wife: "Alexa, can you substitute baking soda for baking powder?"

Alexa: "I've added baking powder to your shopping list."

Wife: "Wtf... Hey Google, can you substitute baking soda for baking powder?"

Google Home: "According to SimplyRecipes, you can substitute baking soda for baking powder, if you increase the amount of acidic ingredients in the recipe to offset the baking soda. You'll also need much less baking soda as it is 3 times as powerful as baking powder. You'll need about a teaspoon of vinegar or lemon juice for every 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda."

Wife: Dayum.

Some would-be new owners of Pixel phones are likely feeling disappointed right now...

FWIW - I ordered mine on 6 Oct and was "allocated" stock.

Interesting video on the design considerations behind #X11 , published by +ComputerHistory. In 1991, the year of this presentation, software distribution was typically by floppy disk in the mail. Online updates, as we are used to today, were not a realistic option back in the era of 9.6kbit/sec modem.

Of interest is the question at 51:40 (by the man in the penguins top, no less), which I understand and paraphrase as, "once you get a big user community... uncovering edge-case bugs, would it have been better to fix those problems first before discovery" (in other words, spend more time testing before release)?

+Jim Gettys' response : "there's a real problem with getting a large enough user community to uncover all the different problems ... not all problems are discovered until it's too late to fix them".

Well, I guess that problem has been solved. :-)

Barricane Beach is beautiful spot for locals and tourists alike. Although small, it's one of North Devon's gems: picturesque rocks for climbing on and rockpooling, shingly sand that's comfortable enough, and a great view across to the waves make it a lovely all-rounder. In the summer, it's possible to enjoy a delicious Sri Lankan curry, which is very delicately flavoured and cooked to order, at the Barricane Beach Cafe. It's popular, so queuing times are typically 20-30 minutes, but well worth it for the whole experience.

The Landmark Theatre performs a variety of functions, serving both the local community and visitors from further afield. It hosts a couple of real ale and music events each year, typically on the spring and summer bank holiday weekends, together with numerous real arts performances throughout the whole year. Parking is generally ok, although at busy times it can be challenging to find a space. Other ammenities at the facility, such as the bar, tourist shop and toilets are all fine, although the toilets suffer from lack of ventilation, making them extremely warm and airless in summer months.

Good menu selection, great hygiene rating (5) and spacious patio/terrace area by the stream. Only let down slightly by the car parking, which is a little awkward. Around 30 spaces tho.

Does a good Sunday roast, but on the day we visited they were a little short staffed. Nevertheless, still attentive and very pleasant to deal with. Facilities were generally good, though outside toilet block may put a few people off. Charming situation and definitely worth a visit.

It's your typical Tesco supermarket, which means that generally it's good. All the main features and facilities, though for its size it feels a bit lacking in choice. Good all-rounder though.
