This is an interesting development, especially after reading Daniel Suarez' book, Influx.
Excitement is building as rumors have emerged of multiple detections of gravitational waves. If true, this would be one of the biggest physics breakthroughs so far this century, confirming a central feature of Einstein's Theory of General Relativity.

Same.  I'm hoping that this government will restore Canada's good image in the world, will open up the lines of communication, bring some science back, etc.  Lots to fix.  But hopefully with an appropriate level of fiscal responsibility.

Kiss of death for twitter?
The former Microsoft CEO is showing Twitter a much-needed vote of confidence.

Cheaper TV channel packages are coming to Canada! 
In less than a month, big changes are coming that will usher in a new era of pick-and-pay television, including a cheap "skinny" basic TV package. But it appears none of the major cable and satellite TV companies wants to talk about it.

I've been trying to get rid of TV in our house for a while now, but running into resistance from family who watch just 3-4 channels most of the time.  Hopefully, the new packages will let me focus on just what we want, rather than buying the big bundles to get those 3-4 channels.

Space Roomba? Great idea until it starts doing that damn "circle dance".
A spacecraft that cleans debris from Earth's orbit, fuelled by the breakdown of the debris itself.

Looks as though they waited until the crosswalk lights said that it was ok to go into the intersection. :-)

Geek and computer guy in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
Introduction
I'm a dad and a computer geek living in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.  

Our summers typically hit 40C and our winters often hit -40C so I like to spend as much of my winter vacation as possible walking that beach pictured at the top of my profile.  That strip of sand is located in  Nuevo Vallarta just north of Puerto Vallarta.

This restaurant is a hidden gem that you could easily walk or drive right by without seeing it. It is nestled into the corkscrew ramp of a parking lot! Once you turn onto Garry from Portage, it is immediately on your let. It only has 14 diner style stools around a curved counter so seating and atmosphere are very casual. Famena serves up an amazing roti. You choose your meat and vegetable fillings which are wrapped in a buttery flavored home made roti wrapper. Depending on the time of year, it comes with either a salad or a bowl of soup. It is well worth the hunt to find this restaurant if you like roti.

This is the first stop on the mutant food tour. Awesomely delicious and huge burgers. It is pricey so it is best to bring a group and order one of the monster burgers as you get more for your money. Just seeing one of these bad boys in person makes the price reasonable.
