Hodor. Do you feel like there aren't enough programming languages out there or frameworks to get the job done right? What we wanted was to make programming simpler and easier to use. So that we as engineers could focus on doing what we do best -- creating disruptive technology that just works.

Drinking game for tonight's Republican debate:
Take 1 drink whenever:
- Donald Trump interrupts someone.
- Benghazi or Hillary Clinton's emails are mentioned.
- Jeb Bush or Marco Rubio say something in Spanish.
- Someone says "Christian nation," "traditional marriage," or "family values."

Take 2 drinks whenever:
- John Kasich actually gets to speak.
- Anyone says "I'm not a scientist" before rejecting overwhelming scientific consensus about climate change.
- Mike Huckabee takes a hard-line moral stance and/or jokes about sexual harassment.
- Ben Carson or Rand Paul refer to themselves as "outsiders."
- Obama is referred to as the "worst president for __."
- Anyone uses the line "You're fired."

Finish your drink:
- Someone takes a shot at one of the seven candidates not even on stage.
- Donald Trump offers to pay one of the other candidates to stop running.
- Ted Cruz shuts down the entire debate to show his version of good governing.
- Chris Christie is late because of traffic.
- Reagan and Jesus are mentioned in the same sentence.
- Anyone says anything so mind-bogglingly sexist, racist, or homophobic that it should instantly disqualify them from public office, but instead their poll numbers rise.
- The moderator announces that they too are running for president.
Anything that I missed?

Aspirin. Lots of aspirin.

And lock up the car keys. You won't be driving anywhere after that.

So this summer I built a pretty nice gaming PC, and I'd like to be able to use it's idle time to help with distributed computing science projects like Folding@Home, SETI, etc. Seems like those two tend to get all the attention though - does anyone have a recommendation for a good project to join that could really use the extra power?

"Wookie lifespan" and "Chewbacca age" had no recorded search volume until this month - I wonder why... :)
(For the record, they live an average of 400 standard years).

.back .background { background-size:auto!important; } .contest-images.products img { background: #fff!important; } We love everything Google here at The Gooru, and what’s more Google than the all-new Chromebook Pixel?!?! The New Chromebook Pixel has a ton of increased specs over the first version, with 8GB of RAM, i5-5200U Processor, and the brand-new USB Type-C charger. We were lucky enough to have the new Pixel given to us, but we really want ...

I'm good on that. So there's one more chance for someone else to win it.
