Any Android Wear experts out there?

My beloved Nexus 6 went swimming this weekend (in case you were wondering, it is no Michael Phelps) so now I own a Nexus 6p.

The "rebuilding" effort seems to be going well, but I'm stymied by a problem with one particular Wear app: stocard. It is actually one of the wear apps I use the most. It appears to be installed but does not show up in the list (log below)

Not sure how to troubleshoot this. I'm wondering if it is because the Nexus 6 was 32 bit and the 6p is 64-bit?

did you try resyncing all apps in the Android Wear app?

Although it happened a few weeks ago, I finally got around to posting about Meridian 2016:

http://www.adventuresinoss.com/2016/07/19/opennms-meridian-2016-released/
I am woefully behind on blog posts, so please forgive the latency in posting about Meridian 2016. As you know, early last year we split OpenNMS into two flavors: Horizon and Meridian. The goal was to create a faster release cycle for OpenNMS while still providing a stable and supportable version ...

Some brief comments on the events in Dallas and the term "African-American"

http://www.bbqandsweettea.org/?p=63
I had a wonderful weekend holiday near Lake Tahoe that was only marred by the events in Dallas. Some comments made by Sarah Palin (and yes, I know, I shouldn't be giving her any more free publicity) struck a cord, and I wanted to share some thoughts. I have an old friend who is police in Durham, ...

Bitter and beautiful, it's the Negroni:

http://forgottencocktails.com/?p=1044
The first time I went to Italy (many years ago), my friend Antonio took me to a bar in Naples. All of the beautiful people were standing around looking beautiful with lovely sparkling red drinks in their hands. To me it looked like fizzy cherry Kool-Aid, and I asked about it.

Hey +Ethan Lepouttre this Reddit thread has announced the next Anomaly series. We'd like to play on the August 27th date but we'll need to fly, so I want to book flights.

https://www.reddit.com/r/Ingress/comments/4pteka/next_round_of_anomaly_cities_announced/

But .. they aren't on the official events page. Do you know if they are firm? I'd hate to spend all that money and it not happen.

Hey guy - the latest Niantic e-mail left Granada, Spain off the list of anomaly sites.

Since we just spent a buttload of money to move our reservations around to make it, I was happy to see that it is on the events page.

Don't scare me like that!

I am happy to finally be able to confirm that MC Frontlot and his band, along with The Doubleclicks, will be playing an exclusive show during the All Things Open conference in October. The OpenNMS Group, at great expense (seriously, this is like our entire marketing budget for the year), ...

First look at +Linux Mint 18 "Sarah" running on a Dell XPS 13 laptop:

http://www.adventuresinoss.com/2016/07/01/first-thoughts-on-linux-mint-18-sarah/
I am a big fan of Linux Mint and I look forward to every release. This week Mint 18 “Sarah” was released. I decided to try it out on my Dell XPS 13 laptop since it is the easiest machine of mine to base and they really haven't suggested an upgrade path. The one article I was able to find ...

As some of you may have noticed, a little while ago the OpenNMS Project website got updated to a new, fancy, responsive version. OpenNMS Platform. This was mainly the work of Ronny Trommer with a big assist from our graphic designer, Jessica. We are often so busy working on the code we often ...

Bathroom panic was the spark, but the law that shot North Carolina to the front of the culture wars has a much deeper history

The FBI may have closed the DB Cooper case, but I have a lead.

Yup, I decided to in place upgrade my +Linux Mint desktop to Mint 18 yesterday. Here's how it went.

http://www.adventuresinoss.com/2016/07/06/upgrading-linux-mint-17-3-to-mint-18-in-place/
Okay, I thought I could wait, but I couldn't, so yesterday I decided to do an “in place” upgrade of my office desktop from Linux Mint 17.3 to Mint 18. It didn't go smoothly. First, let me stress that the Linux Mint community strongly recommends a fresh install every time you upgrade from one ...

Need help identifying this car, seen on the road yesterday. Studebaker?

Excellent service. My wife's purse was stolen which included our addresses and various keys, so we were very eager to get the house re-keyed. Not only did they show up promptly, they were able to re-key the truck while they were here. Professional, prompt and affordable.
