I haven't stayed up until 3 hacking in ages, but it paid off.

I got a Twiddler 3, Android's Quick Launch feature (that was mostly removed after Honeycomb), and Google Glass to play together :)

TIL Wolfram Alpha has a time dilation calculator. Now I can finally figure out where those lost work days went.
The answer to time dilation calculator... Enter what you want to calculate or know about in science, nutrition, history, geography, engineering, mathematics, linguistics, sports, finance, music...

It's like a map, but for cloud service provider product name jargon. My teammate Greg wrote it.

Now go use it to find the treasure... And by treasure I mean an awesome back end for whatever it is you're building :)
As a Developer Advocate on the Google Cloud Platform, I am frequently asked what services we provide.  If the person I’m talking to is familiar with Amazon Web Services (AWS), the quickest ways to ...

An enlightened vs resistance contest. What could go wrong?
 
The ENL vs RES auctions for 2 Weapons of Mass Distraction dresses are now live!

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Enlightened-Charity-Auction-Ingress-Weapons-of-Mass-Distraction-Dress-/301613063220

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Resistance-Charity-Auction-Ingress-Weapons-of-Mass-Distraction-Dress-/301613071373

Enlightened agents: your #MissionForGood , should you choose to accept it, is to help shape the young minds of the future generation.

100% of the proceeds from the winning bid of the Enlightened faction's auction will be donated to the +Challenger Center for Space Science Education. http://www.challenger.org

If the closing price of the Enlightened auction exceeds the auction price of the Resistance auction, the amount up to $1000 will be matched and donated to the +Challenger Center by an anonymous benefactor. This amount will be further matched by their employer.

Resistance agents: your #MissionForGood , should you choose to accept it, is to help preserve the past.

100% of the proceeds from the winning bid of the Resistance faction's auction will be donated to the National Preservation Institute. http://www.npi.org

The National Preservation Institute (NPI) offers continuing education and professional training for those involved in the management, preservation, and stewardship of cultural heritage.

If the closing price of the Resistance auction exceeds the auction price of the Enlightened auction, the amount up to $1000 will be matched and donated to the +National Trust for Historic Preservation by an anonymous benefactor. This amount will be further matched by their employer.

The +National Trust for Historic Preservation works to preserve and protect landscapes, buildings, and neighborhoods that have played a meaningful role in our past. Their efforts ensure that future generations will be able to experience and discover their own connections to these places as well. http://www.preservationnation.org

perl -e solves all my problems. Well, except for one.

This time it gave me directory listings on GitHub Pages
The resulting entity body MAY be short and stout.

As a prerequisite for a lot of the wearable software I want to write, I need a good input, so I finally ordered a twiddler 3. It's going great, and I made some comfort hacks that I thought I'd share.

- My hand is smaller than most twiddlers (this is probably why I could never get my twiddler 2 to work for me), so I ditched the Velcro strap in favor of an elastic band. Yes, it's a repurposed ponytail band :)
- I find it a lot more comfortable to stabilize it with my thumb than the back of my hand, so I hold it that way and forgo access to the function keys on top.

Is anyone else doing any fit hacking?

Nevermind, I got the answer I was looking for. Now, I can keep looking for the next best way to use a thumb.

The photoshopped catwalk picture looks a bit weird, but this event sounds like it'll be fun. Because robots.
COME ONE, COME ALL   TO THE WACKIEST SHOW IN TOWN!     EXPECT A CATWALK WITH DRONES, ROBOTS,   AND MAD INVENTIONS   FROM THE LEADING MINDS    IN TECH & FASHION.       THIS EVENT WILL BE   DIFFERENT THAN ANYTHING YOU'LL   SEE IN NEW YORK, PARIS, OR MILAN.       IT'LL MAKE YOU  LAUGH.   IT'LL BLOW YOUR MIND.   THEN, IT'LL MAKE YOU DRUNK   (G...

I also really love science, especially space and astronomy.
