I released Oraide v0.4 with tmux version checking and more docs. Version history: https://oraide.readthedocs.org/en/v0.4/history.html#release-0-4 PyPI: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/oraide/0.4
Release 0.4¶. Issue #8: Added an explicit requirement of tmux 1.7 or greater. On import, a warning is raised when it cannot be confirmed that a supported version of tmux is available. Thanks to David Greisen for the feedback about this issue. Upgraded to Sphinx 1.2. Added a See also document.

Google is 15 years old today, so it's been self-driving without a license. Teenagers are so irresponsible.

With an Android tablet and a $10 Bluetooth OBDII scanner, I fixed a check engine light problem. I feel like I cheated a mechanic.

On one hand: this is a great recreation. On the other hand: Voyager.
Every incarnation of Star Trek features them - probably every Star Trek fan is aware of them: Phasers, Tricorders, PADDs. These often used devices (called props) help to create and maintain the credibility of the show, act as support for the characters and the respective actors and are sometimes ...

When astronauts talk about problems on US EVA 23, it gives me a knot in my stomach.

I added Python 3 support to Oraide. It wasn't fun, but that's how much I care. https://pypi.python.org/pypi/oraide/0.3.0 https://github.com/ddbeck/oraide
A library to help presenters demonstrate terminal sessions hands-free.

I started going to Rockville Dental Arts recently and it has been a very pleasant experience. I had a big fear of dentistry after bad experiences with other dentists so I went in with considerable anxiety. But Dr. Barnes and the staff at the office are patient, respectful, and attentive. Appointments are efficient and easily scheduled. Though dentistry is expensive in general, Rockville Dental Arts is priced competitively and have not attempted to up-sell on unnecessary procedures. So far I have no reservations about recommending them to others.
