Based on +S. John Ross's recommendation, I picked up the "Haven The Free City" box ($20 - still in its shrinkwrap!) and "Haven Secrets of the Labyrinth" book ($12.95) and they are amazing. The box contains a big fold-out map and a bunch of pamphlets/separate page maps for various neighborhoods in the city.

I'm looking forward to digging through them more (although I wish I had PDFs). I'm kinda bummed that I didn't know to pick these up years ago.

<sigh> The "Internet of Things" is a terrible idea primarily because the companies adding "smarts" to their devices have no idea how to:
* Write secure code
* Handle updates when flaws are (inevitably) found

In Cleveland. Weather advisory starting at 5:00. Expecting 10 inches of snow over the next day or so.

My flight leaves at 3:38. <whew/>

TIL There are 4 kinds of emergency alerts (all of which are intended to be loud and annoying) that you can receive on your phone, including:

"Presidential alerts: These alerts will often fall into the "extreme threats" category, but are issued directly by the President of the United States and cannot be turned off in your phone's settings."
