This blurb about a Wendy's in the county I grew up in made me feel just a tad nostalgic this morning.
Joshua James is accused of tossing a live gator into the restaurant after the drive-through attendant had turned around.

While educating my oldest daughter on Industrial Music, I was suddenly transported to the 1990's Internet nostalgia, in a world of hackers like daemon9/route, ix.netcom.com as a common hostname, and absurd HP-UX exploits. In my memory, this album cover unites all 3.

Technology was so much easier to understand, back then ...

Ocasionally, folks ask me where to go camping in California. I've assembled this map based on recommendations from various sources, mostly "Moon California Camping" and "Sunset Magazine". "Red" means no reservations, "Yellow" means only reservations for large groups, and everything else means "Go for it". The numbers are scenic ratings from Moon.

Anyone have favorites to add to this list?

Remember when Microsoft Windows couldn't connect to the Internet without buying additional software which worked terribly? Pepperidge Farm remembers.

Just imagine what else you could exist within that big red dot.
 
They Paved Paradise ...

Los Angeles now has around 200 square miles of car parking space. Here's what it would like as one big parking lot.
Forty years ago the Los Angeles City Council adopted some of Joni Mitchell's lyrics as a mission statement. They made it their intended purpose to 'Pave paradise and put up a parking lot'. That aim has now been achieved. Los Angeles now has around 200 square miles of parking spaces.

Unfortunately they don't mention Donald Shoup here, and if you don't understand his research then you can't have a good understanding of why this is bad.   You need to read his introductory book (http://www.uctc.net/research/papers/351.pdf) on the topic or watch his talk (https://youtu.be/Vv2gfxs3vsQ) to really understand the enormous costs here.

https://www.mapbox.com/blog/san-francisco-digitalglobe/ has a great new oblique view image of San Francisco - so I thought I would annotate it with how I view our little town.

In case you needed a sign on whether or not a new XCOM game was about to be released. I've had two children since the last time my GPU was upgraded.

Finally some common sense

Government created the problem with the growing intrusion of law enforcement and child protection agency powers, so it's nice to see they recognize it.
A victory for the Free Range parenting movement. A loss for overzealous cops.

One raindrop of good news in an ocean of criminalization of parenting.  One win is good, but the fight for the kids is just beginning.
