Practical dreams about saving the human race
Among the things that have kept me up at night: Your species is being attacked by a superior invader that takes apart peoples' brains and assimilates the knowledge into their collective hive. How do you stop them?

A group of students from Carnegie Mellon University and the University of California, Berkeley developed a free software which uses regular 2D images and combines them with free 3D models of objects to create unbelievable results.

Best radio shows from from 1940s to the end of the 20th century
This is second in a series started with  a review of comedy acts in the 20th century . Old Time Radio is enjoying a comeback. There are plenty of original and creative shows recorded over the years and have expired copyright which makes them great for repac...

Google has found the solution for people that can't afford data plans, or expensive smartphones with too many cameras and big screens and contributing to e-waste:

Data plans, expensive smartphones with too many cameras and big screens contributing to e-waste! And tiered network access!

That's right, just like the aftermath of the financial crisis, Google has found another solution that is identical to the problem!

-----------------------

Of course the better solution is: eBay.

iPhone 2g is available for $50 shipped. Androids and shittier phones are cheaper.

Reduced e-waste, lower price, can still "connect with family through a live video chat", "use mapping apps to find the closest hospital" and "simply search the web".

How to make the best out of jury duty

Today is a good day. I just had a call from a telemarketer. Did I yell and scream at them, you ask? Certainly not. Like a good IT administrator I put my skills to use for their benefit. Here's how the conversation went:

Computer: "Press 9 to not be contacted in the future. Press 4 to speak to someone about your mortgage issues"
<presses 4>
TM: "Hello, are you having problems paying your mortgage?"
Me: "Hi, this is the IT department. We intercepted your call as we detected a problem with you phone and need to fix it."
TM: "Oh... ok, well what do we need to do?"
Me: "We're going to need to fix the settings by pressing 4-6-8 and * at the same time"
TM: "Ok, nothing happened."
<alright, so he's not using a Polycom>
Me: "Are you using the new Polycom phones that we deployed?"
TM: "No, it's a Yealink"
Me: "Ok, I see. You haven't had the new Polycom phone deployed to your desk yet. Let me check our technical documentations for the Yealink."
<did a quick Google search, "yealink phone factory reset">
Me: "Alright, do you see an "OK" button on your phone?"
TM: "Yes I do"
Me: "Alright, you're going to press and hold that button for 10 seconds."
TM: "OK, pressing it now"
Me: "Perfect, let me know if you get a password request"
TM: "OK, nothing has popped up ye----"
<click>

That's right. I made a telemarketer unwittingly factory reset his phone which means he will be unable to make anymore calls until someone is able to reconfigure his phone and that will take at least an hour or longer if they can't do it right away!

Is Free Internet Chess Server (FICS) a registered nonprofit? Are donations tax deductible?
I have been trying to get involved in the FICS project, the largest and oldest free online chess server. After playing for many years there, maybe there is something I can give back. It would be nice to know more about their organization and who the real pe...

Set up Living Social deal, and could not find a time to redeem the deal. They would not extend the validity period.

Would not let me borrow their sample stamper for a sec with a paper purchase at the store. Without a little give like this better off just shopping on Amazon. Decent selection of paper stock and products. Dana was cute, helpful, and not pushy.

Had a great seafood brunch and appreciated access to the kitchen. The valet crashed my car and the company took zero responsibility for this. This brunch literally cost me thousands of dollars.

Nice local place to drink a beer and watch game. Advertises in the paper as an upscale place to dance. You would be overdressed here if you wore other than jeans. And nobody was dancing.
