Is it weird that the only pictures I took during my trip to Austin are of a food from places I wish would open here?

Hip young silicon valley... one out of three isn't bad?

Mostly those pictures were so I could text them to my wife and make her jealous.

Do you happen to have an invite you could spare? My tip prompted this post - http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2014/10/an-inbox-that-works-for-you.html - so sorry for leaking at least the name of the service a few days early. :P

First reaction: This is freaking GENIUS.
Second reaction: How did someone not figure this out earlier? :)
 
No More Stubborn Lids: A Pickle Jar You Can Open With Ease #npr
It turns out the shape of our pickle jars is all wrong. Engineers in Japan have found the ideal shape to free those stubborn lids.

That's a pretty nifty idea. I wonder how it will affect how many pickles can comfortably fit inside.

I'm dorking around with Blogger, and have been angered twice in the last 12 hours because it opted me in to automatic G+ posts shortly after I explicitly chose not to turn that feature on.

First of all: Why are "auto share" and "prompt to share" independent checkboxes? What does it mean to have both of them checked?

Second of all: If I look at a settings screen, explicitly toggle one of the settings about sharing, and therefore did not choose to toggle the other one, why does G+ interpret that to mean I want to be opted in to the setting I did not choose?

Third of all: Is this going to be like phone number verification in Android Hangouts, where it'll periodically try to opt me in despite my explicit desire to NOT enable it?

(Side note: Why does Hangouts refer to it as "phone number verification" instead of what it really is, which is "publicly list your phone number"?)

But they'd want you to share for data on others, not you :) but I was just being snarky, as I doubt the confusion is deliberate.

MUST TRY THIS. This is one of two things I desperately crave from my years in Austin (the other being http://www.rudysbbq.com/store/p-61-texas-beef-brisket.aspx which I should just suck it up and order some time).

Story
Tagline
Carpe Pullum!
Introduction
I grew up in NYC and then moved as far away as possible (without crossing national borders or having my hat float) in order to go to college. After school I worked in the Bay Area for a while, then again moved as far away as possible, this time politically and culturally, to Texas. Despite the awesome barbecue available there, it turns out I didn't have much in common with the state, so I've returned to the Bay Area.
