So, I spend a week in the UK, and when I come back the Republicans have decided to stand up against the Patriot Act (yay) while Obama is trying to push through the very evil TPP (boo)?

Is this Bizarro America?

While I've never started one, I think it may be time for a class action lawsuit against +OnePlus to get them to fix the faulty touchscreen in the One handset:

Ten days ago I did a post about touchscreen issues I've been having with my (previously) beloved OnePlus One smartphone. Since then all I've experienced from OnePlus customer “care” are delaying tactics and an obvious reluctance to address a systemic problem with their phone design.

Although now that LYZ28E (with T-Mobile wifi calling support, the feature I NEED) is available, I'm about to sideload that mother, since I'm too impatient to wait for my turn in the OTA update line....

I love e-mails like this

"After some years using Tivoli we have realized that the extra functionality provided by Tivoli does not justify the price tag to be paid, and we have decided (after looking at different solutions in the market), returning back to OpenNMS as we think it is the only open source tool in the market that meets our requirements. "

Yay +OpenNMS

Ever since Sherlock Holmes retired, I've always wanted to keep bees.

Just didn't think my first hive would be inside the house.

In keeping with our new Horizon release policy of a new major release every three to four months, we are happy to announce the availability of OpenNMS 16, codenamed Daredevil. Most of the changes in OpenNMS 16 are under the covers. We are trying to streamline the code and thus have removed both ...

I've updated my GPG key to make it stronger at the advice of +Jonathan Sartin .

The new ID is 0xFBF2DC21 with a key fingerprint of:

If you have issues with your +OnePlus One phone's touchscreen, please consider voting up this article on #Slashdot  :

http://slashdot.org/submission/4457127/ask-slashdot-touchscreen-issues-on-oneplus-one-handset
Having been a big fan of the OnePlus One handset, I was disappointed when it recently developed touchscreen issues. The upper part of the display would register a number of phantom touches, and while I first noticed this on the upgrade to Lollipop, a downgrade back to KitKat did not fix the problem....

Lots of stuff, and I mean lots of cool stuff is going on and to paraphrase Hamlet I have not enough thoughts to put them in, imagination to give them shape, or time to act them in. I spent this week in the UK but I should be home for awhile and I hope to catch up.

Some of that, some of taking on less external development projects that put us in the weeds.  The codebase cleaning has done wonders for making it easier to do big changes.

I made my first cocktail with Allspice Dram last night. It was wonderful:

2.00 ounces bourbon; 0.75 ounce Allspice Dram (or less, to taste); 0.50 ounce fresh lime juice; 0.50 tablespoon simple syrup (or less, to taste); 2 dashes Angostura Bitters. Shake in a cocktail shaker with ice and strain into a 5-ounce cocktail glass. Let me state for the record that I am not a ...

We are just about a month away from one of my favorite weeks of the year: The OpenNMS Developer's Jamboree, or Dev-Jam. This is the tenth one we've had, which is hard for me to believe. I think it is a testament to the community around the OpenNMS Project that we can have these year after year ...
