"Launa attack it!" you shout

She throws her sword between the beasts glowing red eyes and charges. Drawing the sword out of the beast she slits it from eyes to chest yet the lichdreki still draws its undying breath.

Gabriel staggers and collapses toward the door less the be allowed to ghouls burst in. He can hold it but a moment.

You pelt the beast with blasts of fire trying to draw its attention. It fails. A lightning blast hits Launa square in the chest and throws her backwards into Gabriel and the door. They are pinned to the door by the beasts lightning. You hear their screams of agony.

Calling on all the strength you have left you increase the amount of fire and undead flesh melts off the dragons backside. It presses the attack against your pinned companions.

"Ahh, damn it all!!!" you shout and leap on the monsters back.

You ring your hands around the monsters neck and ignite your hands. Searing heat pulses from cherry red to orange to yellow to white. You melt the monsters head off at the neck. But not before it's barbed tail finds its way to your backside. The arm length barbs pierce your body.

Blood seeps into your punched lungs as you continue to burn the lichdreki. Soon it is dead. You lay collapsed atop the beast, about to join it. Your last sight before death takes you is that of ghouls breaking through the door and carrying Launa off as tears run down her fair cheeks.

Upside of tired: more likely to go to bed than do anything.
Downside of tired: more likely to be awake than snoring.

You're overtired.  It's kinda dangerous because it's the result of stress, not physical exertion.  Your blood pressure stays up, it affects your judgment, I no longer allow anyone on my teams to work much overtime though I remember working a lot of OT in my misspent yoof.  I'd wake up exhausted, plagued by bad dreams.  I'm not telling you anything you don't know....

You need to master the art of dozing.  I put on one of those David Attenborough things, or some ol' nature documentary on Netflix, get all comfy, the dog gets up in the bed, puts her head on my feet, dude, I last about 15 minutes.  I've seen the first few minutes of some of those documentaries dozens of times and never seen the end.  I now cue 'em up about 15 minutes in, in hopes I'll catch the end.  Never happens.

The kind of article that only AnandTech and a few others seem to be able to publish without making me face palm or cry BS at.

From this I gather that:

Web browsing is targeting quad core designs, whether or not Java Scripts on Joe Random web site is or not, the browser backends likely are.

Google Play Store updating apps is indeed a heavy load, and it would be interesting to see it run on a more "Core crazy" SoC.

Mobile games are probably not taking advantage of much. Whether this is to support older dual core designs or just the code's architecture is unknown but I would bet it is both.

Also this kind of makes me interested in 4+2 hexa core big.LITTLE designs as a nice balance between performance and battery life.

The only thing about the latest Moto G that I see that makes me leary is the lack of NFC. Being single band 802.11n not so much as I prefer tablets for most things.

Samsung not putting NFC in tablets means all I got to use it for anymore is tapping my phone to pay for dog food with Google Wallet.

I'll amit that longer battery life would attract me more than unflattening the tyre.
 
Oh, and this is available too. Ordered for review purposes. :) Would really like to get my hands on the new Sport model with integrated GPS but you can't get one just yet.
More customization options and a pair of sizes, plus two-day battery life are all part of the Moto 360 refresh. Exercise enthusiasts can opt for the GPS-enabled Sport edition.

I bet +Paul Young​ could contribute some gold to this.
 
Attention, techie friends: Have you ever been contacted by a tech recruiter who said something so ridiculous, all you could do was laugh?

You know the kind of thing I'm talking about. I want to highlight some of the most amusing and absurd things tech recruiters say -- and I need your help.

If you have a funny tech recruiter story you're willing to share, email me at jr.queries [at] gmail or just fill out the Google Docs form at the link below. Either way, your anonymity is absolutely guaranteed; I won't use your name unless you want me to, and I definitely won't use the name of the company that contacted you.

Not looking to get anyone in trouble here -- just looking to collect and share a bunch of funny tech recruiter tales!

The form is here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1pmYw9SzauisRO9gNy26en5o6Z67biFhT-f2y3hjCQUE

Thanks in advance -- and stay tuned for the results. :-)

Introduction
As to myself, well I'm a computer geek that loves coding, eating, learning, and reading; often in combination. Also spent quite a lot of time on movies and video games ^_^.

Pretty much self educated on most things since grade 3'ish and currently working as a programmer. Pretty much fluent in a bunch of languages and if we limit it to just "Programming" languages', I'm able to bring about a dozen of them to bear on a project at will. Throw in other crap like SQL and HTML and we're pushing 20+. I am particularly found of C, Perl, and I don't think I know anyone that knows more about portable /bin/sh scripting than I do.... 

Coding is enough to me that if I was stranded on an island, I wouldn't write S.O.S. with rocks, I'd make my own assembly language to entertain myself until rescue! Outside of code, I love to read and learn. Especially fond of science fiction and technology and you will often find me memorized in something. Kill a blond with a train by asking a question near train tracks, do same to me by by triggering a think-on lol. 

Much of my youth was spent all but walking into people, while trying to figure out crap like how to make mecha (ala Mobile Suit Gundam and MechWarrior) possible. Most of what I know about math comes from that. Games and movies are big interests for me, I've also got a thing for zombies. I also know quite a bit about room clearing and SWAT type stuff. More than a civilian probably has a right to. Got several thousand hours practicing in simulation games as an element and some "Practice" in the real world without live ammunition. It is my belief that once we stop learning, we start dying. Coming from an Italian background, well, let's just say food is in my blood, period! 

 And I think if anyone parses all this, you're as bad as I am :P

We ordered delivery from this place and I noticed two things: very polite folk and the portion size gets my seal of approval! Having an Italian mother, well, I come from a tradition of filling people well and this place knows how to do that most excellently :-). Vs stuff I've had else where this is more like home made with love & care. Sometime when I'm out that way, I must stop in for lunch. Definitely eating there again!!!!! Disclaimer: don't know there decore as this was delivery. Will try editing it someday when I can visit.

Great (fresh) food, nice service. I haven't tried the pizza yet (yeah, I know) but for everything else, I gotta say, they pack the food nice. Reminds me of my Italian mother :-). If I could go out to lunch everyday, I would live here!

I've been with Dr. Carr since 2009. It's the same great people at Carr Eye Care and Coweta Eye Care. Always have had great service and attentive care here, Dr Carr is also an O.D. that you can have a fine, relaxed time dealing with and someone I trust with my vision quality. He's also very fond of his lovely chihuahua ;) My only complaint is I'm now living over 70 miles away, but I ain't finding a new eye doctor!

They have a large selection of cloths, ranging from ACU and 3-color DCU to older woodland BDUs and solids; including boonie hats in everything! Prices vary from normal to great buys. Only a moderate selection of boots and MOLLE/tactical gear but the prices are excellent for what they do have. It's mostly the smaller things that aren't good buys. It's kind of a small store but it's a good store, for what you can find. People running Bear Paw were also nice enough, that I would come back even if their prices didn't blow away the competition :-).
