+Jer Lance was saying on the mailing list it was under consideration, but not a done deal yet - so I think the team is prepared to go about the hotel-finding process again. Maybe this will be a hotel, and maybe not... it's a 'we'll see'.

Our review of Seoul Street is in January's Current Magazine, and also on ecurrent.com at http://ecurrent.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2393:seoul-street&catid=128:food&Itemid=591. It's a little mysterious to me that they're showing a photo of bi bim bap to illustrate a place that specializes in Korean fried chicken, but it is more colorful...

My brother in law asks: "Do any of my technical-minded friends know of any Mac-compatible external bay for standard 3.5" SATA drives? I'm not looking for RAID capabilities, but I want & need to access data should something go wrong with the MacPro again."

Agreement with +Rex Roof. Unless there's some special use case here, Time Machine is the way to go. Any USB or Firewire enclosure will work, there's nothing special about Mac wrt storage. Anything you see that says "special for Mac" just means a special higher price tag because the market will bear it.

In MI? Don't like the bill to remove benefits from same-sex domestic partners of state employees? Call Gov. Snyder's office at (517)335-7858. Remarkably, they're answering the phone and taking down names. Circulate this far and wide.

Why? HE CAN REFUSE TO SIGN THIS BILL.


The two points I made when I called were:

1. This bill will make it harder for high-tech companies to recruit qualified employees to our state, which is already a problem by the way, because in addition to being economically challenged we will also look socially backward. It's hard enough to get programmers to come here rather than California, looking like we're rednecks won't help matters.

1a. Same argument applies to our ability to retain recent college grads.

2. It won't save the state money in the medium-long run, because GLBT employees will quit (for private jobs which do offer benefits) and will be replaced, statistically, by straight employees who can and will use the benefits... and may be likely to have larger families who will go on those benefits.

I'm a technology exec. I told them that. If you think your job is relevant, or shows that you're the kind of people Snyder claims he wants around, tell them. He needs to hear this, and may be more inclined to listen if it's coming from the industries he claims to be promoting.

On the Michigan bullying bill which included an exemption for religiously-motivated verbal bullying... The Republicans are backing down on that: http://www.upi.com/Top_News/US/2011/11/07/Michigan-bullying-bill-draws-fire/UPI-37961320712486/?spt=hs&or=tn
Republican legislative leaders in Michigan said Monday they're reworking a bill critics say would allow children to bully others for religious or moral reasons.

Interesting, but the language about "school employee" is troubling given that public school employees are agents of the state.

No affiliation or knowledge, but interesting. They're not the only ones doing this in the area, so add them to your pitch list if you're pitching.

Herbert Carter and Mildred Hemmons courted each other in air in 1942. For next 69 years, the two pilots became known as the first couple of the Tuskegee Airmen.

Do you have to deal with both meetings and hands-on work (writing, coding, drawing etc.)? Wonder why it's harder than it should be? Check this article out. I've posted this before, but I recently sent it out to some colleagues and it occurs to me it's worth an occasional repost -- it's helped me not only to understand my own scheduling needs, but also how to be kinder to the schedules of those who can't refuse meetings with me: http://www.paulgraham.com/makersschedule.html
July 2009. One reason programmers dislike meetings so much is that they're on a different type of schedule from other people. Meetings cost them more. There are two types of schedule, which I'...

I dunno, it looks too artificial. The framing in particular is too modern, and the lines look wrong. Also; no pirates included, which is another mark against it since you can't press gang very well these days.
