Being able to quickly jump from one wifi network to another is an essential skill for modern life—especially if you’re out and about and trying to get the strongest signal possible. Here’s a tip you might not have picked up if you’ve just upgraded to the latest version of Android Lollipop, and the feature is built right into the OS.

Finished my Ikea Glass Whiteboard!

http://www.ikeahackers.net/2012/01/not-expensive-glass-whiteboard.html

Pros:
- Relatively cheap, large glass whiteboard (most glass whiteboards run hundreds of dollars)
- I like the look

Cons:
- Writing on this isn't as nice as the real whiteboard at work - the marks are not as dark. I am not sure if other glass whiteboards would be like this as well. It's not impossible to see or anything, but, it is glass, so it's like writing on... glass.
- Highly reflective, and it faces two windows
- Much easier to just buy a marker board at home depot for $10 and call it a day

The hardest part of this whole ordeal was getting the 1/2" mirror clips. We checked Home Depot, Lowes, and McLendon Hardware - nobody had this size. We tried other sizes but none were large enough. Eventually bought two from Amazon - and one of the packages was missing parts, which is why the top is missing a clip.

Putting it up was fairly straightforward (although my wife did most of it).

This is a project I've wanted to tackle for a couple of years, and am glad I finally did. Hopefully it will work well!

Meh food. Kind of strange tasting. Very cheap, not bad, just kind of... weird. Service was great. Also, there is now a sign to not leave money on the table, which I'm guessing is in response to the fella with the tip problem. Also, weird that the reviews are on a 0-3 scale... makes my 1's look worse than they are.
