Just tried to deploy a Rails app that uses +Plotly  but the `rake assets:precompile` command failed (or it hung up).  I was using the minified version of Plotly, which was the cause of the problem. I had to replace it with the non-minified version so that `rake assets:precompile` would run (it still took about 30 seconds to precompile).  You can get the unminified version here: https://github.com/plotly/plotly.js/blob/master/dist/plotly.js

My 6yo son got the Code Master game as a gift and it is really cool.  I do programming / development for a living and it is a cool way to connect with him.  He definitely enjoys the challenge and the logic.  We got through all the easy levels today and began the intermediate levels.

Another cool thing about the game is that you forget the solutions, so it will be fun to play the same levels again in the future.
Code Master tries to make programming fun and help teach the principles behind coding for kids.

I have mentioned how bad Autism Speaks is in the past, but this document says it well.

They spend more on administrative costs and salaries than they do on Family & Individual Services. Some of the salaries exceed $400k.

Please do not support them and try to educate others about how bad of an organization they really are.

A nice write up of some useful open source .NET libraries.
Open Source .net libraries that make your life easier. 17 Mar 2015. Even though people sometimes claim that open source .net is not in a healthy state and that the community too often relies on what Microsoft is providing, there do exist some awesome open source libraries out there.

The Lego Computer that I totally do not need, but still think is pretty cool
Lego + Computer = Lego Computer It seems straight forward enough - not a new concept by any means. But more often than not, it's the most common request I receive: to build a Lego…

Very detailed analysis comparing Amazon Web Services to Google Cloud Platform.
 
Detailed and informative Cloud comparison article. Conclusion: "Everyone involved unanimously picked GCP. It came down to this: we believe the core technology is better."

One of my favourite quotes: "It's hard to overemphasize how much friendlier GCP pricing is, and how poorly the AWS model works. Amazon's rhetoric for why you should run cloud vs self-hosted infrastructure is the additional agility you get; You can elastically spin up and shut down capacity whenever you want. Reserved Instance pricing effectively negates this advantage, and running all your instances On-Demand is extremely expensive in comparison. So you're left with the decision to over-spend or lock yourself in."

- My promised observations of @StarWars Episode VII #TheForceAwakens follows (with only mild spoiler alerts).
- In @StarWars#TheForceAwakens, I’m reminded that Red & Blue teams cooperate with one another. Rare in American Politics.
- BB-8 is waaaaay cuter than R2D2.
- I guess I did just demote R2D2 to “Dwarf Cute” status.  No hard feelings though.
- BB-8, a smooth rolling metal spherical ball, would have skidded uncontrollably on sand.
- the TIE fighters made exactly the same sound in the vacuum of space as in planetary atmospheres
- if you were to suck all of a star’s energy into your planet, your planet would vaporize.
- the energy in a Star is enough to destroy ten-thousand planets, not just a few here & there.
- once again I felt isolated and inadequate for not understanding Wookiee-speak.
- the lead character snacks on what includes Romanescu Broccoli, nature’s only fractal food.
- Never seen Romanescu Broccoli?  Fractal Earth food befitting a tale of long ago and far, far away.  https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CWxMWFJWEAA8lIj.png
- the Storm Troopers still run as though they’re carrying a full load of poop in their diapers.
- apparently Wookiees don’t age, or they age much slower than human actors do.
- the starry skies were unfamiliar. As they should be, a long time ago in a Galaxy far, far away
- Unashamed of inanity, #TheForceAwakens repeats the Millennium Falcon boast of completing the Kessel Run in "under 12 parsecs"
- ( A Parsec is an obscure unit of distance in Astrophysics, equal to 3.26 Light Years. Neither has anything to do with time. )
- Both at age 19, my wife saw @StarWars in 1977 & our daughter saw #TheForceAwakens in 2015. I don’t know what that means.
- With next year’s @SuperBowl 50 the NFL abandons Roman Numerals, leaving @StarWars as the last bastion of this counting system
- Finally, inspired by @StarWars#TheForceAwakens, here’s my list of the best Hollywood Aliens and why: https://li.st/l/daae32b4-0c46-4d95-aceb-4db826a5df94

This is a nice read for anyone on the spectrum who has a friend/family member going through a health crisis.  Can also be generalized to other areas.
 
I really love this.

I'm trying to also apply it to management. If someone who works for you or on a project where you are senior has complaints or problems, your job is to sympathize and solve.

You don't complain down, only up.
When Susan had breast cancer, we heard a lot of lame remarks, but our favorite came from one of Susan's colleagues. She wanted, she needed, to visit Susan after the surgery, but Susan didn't feel...

The decision came against the backdrop of fast-moving changes in public opinion, with polls indicating that most Americans now approve of same-sex marriage.

Don't waste your time here (Vann York GM Auto Park). They are either incompetent or dishonest. I found the car I wanted at a great price. They let me test drive the car, take it to get checked out by my mechanic, bring in my trade-in, and let me wait about 30 minutes to close the deal before telling me the price was $3500 more expensive. They said the wrong price was shown on the car. Then they tried to sell me a different car. It felt like a "bait and switch". I would never do business with this company after this experience.

Been going here for 30+ years since I was a boy. They are nice and the dentists are great. They have really smooth hands and are really good at minimizing pain. Based on stories I have heard from friends and family, not all dentists are this good. I travel 30 minutes from another town so I can still come here.

Stayed here over a dozen nights. Service, cleanliness, etc are consistently great. Sofa bed in suite is terrible. Everything else is good or great.
