Puzzled this week as to why Google+ mostly broke in Chrome, with HTTP 414 Request-URI-Too-Long errors via XHR. Dug into it by incrementally disabling extensions, and turns out FlashBlock was the culprit.

I had to whitelist G+ in FlashBlock to restore functionality.

The new Flickr layout makes my photos look nicer than they actually are.  Very welcome update from the hideous old white Flickr.
Flickr is almost certainly the best online photo management and sharing application in the world. Show off your favorite photos and videos to the world, securely and privately show content to your friends and family, or blog the photos and videos you take with a cameraphone.

Kids playing with Play Doh on the kitchen table, reminded me that I bought one of these at a garage sale when I was six.  Who could possibly make multi-colored molded figures like that without ruining the whole Doh supply in one sitting?

Using a spare wifi dongle, my Raspberry Pi server lost one more wire. If only I had a way to power it permanently & wirelessly.

Hi Michael, looking for info on Raspberry PI I landed at your site, so just wanted to let you know about a contest on Arduino & Raspberry PI that we just launched at Biicode. www.biicode.com/biicontest2014. Hope you find it interesting. Kind regards from Spain!

A Capella Science explains string theory in what I assume to have been the most labor-intensive YouTube video in the history of the universe.

Geek level 10 reached:

This Raspberry Pi is replacing the old Intel P4 Linux web, mail, and file server in my basement this weekend which powers berkowski.net. I'm looking forward around $8 per month in energy savings; the Pi should pay for itself in about 4-5 months independent if its nerd-fun pricelessness.

World needs more full-scale Lego X-Wing fighters.  I would even settle for more Y-Wings...
