A little more progress on the kegerator project... Now I can get 3 kegs in on one level and close the door.

Next steps:

epoxy the loose lower right hinge piece in place
replace the rubber magnet seal thing
figure out how to install an upper shelf
decide whether the faucets will be at the very top or in the middle
drill holes
install faucets
plumb gas and liquid lines
make it look pretty

I could close the door before, but only with a single keg inside :)

It's a super long story, +Ian Emmons, but suffice it to say that it's only mostly as dumb as it sounds and not completely insecure.

Do any of Sprint or ATT's smartphones not totally suck right now? I've been incredibly spoiled by the awesome Nexus6 that's been my companion for a couple of years now, but the Pixel isn't available directly from ATT or Sprint and i'm required to choose a device that is directly available from one of them.

Hell yeah, Ohio!
After a long fought advocacy battle, Ohio now joins 27 other states to enact a 3 Foot Passing Law to help protect cyclists. The new law officially goes into effect on March 19th of this year. A measure of this nature is not only important to protect riders, but it serves as a very prominent message to build ...

Sure, but the way I read that is that I have to stop at red lights, but then I can go if it's clear regardless of whether there's a functioning signal. It's not quite the Idaho stop, which also allows for rolling through stop signs without stopping completely after ensuring that there's no other traffic, but it's way better than waiting constantly.

fascinating,....
There is a story repeated so often that it has become a truth -- that medieval folk drank weak beer to avoid the perils of drinking water -- but it's a myth.

Just how I remembered from growing up. It's not terribly close to home, but it is close to the nice movie theater so we stopped by after the latest Marvel movie. Typical American fare, done pretty well with good service and a $2 "small dessert" menu.

Amazing locally sourced food, ridiculously good desserts. Pricey, but worth it.

Friendly and helpful staff. We got checked in quickly, enjoyed the whirlpool suite, and were on our way in the morning. The breakfast was mediocre, but that was exactly what I'd expected and the actually fresh and ripe fruit was nice.

Very good. Solid Mexican recipes, fast and friendly service. The booths are tiny, so if you're tall you should ask for a table :)
