I love how when I have a device that several dozen vendors used to sell, even +Microsoft themselves put a pci/ven on at some point!, there are no recent Windows drivers.   But it works out of the box on Linux.   (the ole' DEC tulip ethernet card)  More reasons not to use Windoze.

Somehow knocked my phone out of my coat pocket at lunch.  Then ran a couple of errands.   Was able to find it afterwards with  #Google_Device_Manager.  Nifty!  Great use of Location Services.

  But I cannot manage the device list without being a Business or Education  customer of Google Apps?  The rest of us will get an ever burgeoning list of devices.  Mine shows old phones, tablets, etc. meh.    This needs fixed.  I'm already showing 5 devices, 3 of which I no longer own.

Just popped open a projector someone put in checked luggage that looks like they used it for soccer practice. Borrowed an inexpensive soldering iron from Yuri and repaired some broken off SMD (surface mount aka: ultra miniature) connectors. Felt like trying to thread a needle with a number 2 pencil. But it works!

Sweet Mother of Mercy.  Why is the +HP  shopping web site so awful?  I have this problem with other HP websites too.  Always getting Front end/back end errors from it.  Worlds worst load balancer or proxy? Some kind of nasty bugs there.
Fix it HP!

Samsung ARM chromebook1 users (xe3*) :
anyone know if there is a Transcend Jetdrive Lite fits the ARM model perfectly?  Seems the smallest one is too short. Had a friend loan me one. looks like the 330.   

Anyone else tried these?  The bottoms of them look odd as well.

Having tons of problems suddenly with +Isis Wallet the past two weeks. Tried just about everything I can think of. Google wallet works at the same locations on the same hardware. Had been working fine. No updates to OS or app. Anyone else seen this?

I hear some vendors have totally disabled "paywave" and other NFC readers, but not just one app?? Even the Coke machine at work with the Isis advertisement on it no longer works with Isis. Once again it works with +Google Wallet, just like McDonalds, CVS/pharmacy, etc.

Even opened tickets directly with Isis. Getting nowhere fast. I'm stumped.

Fan of  #Handbrake, the great video transcoding tool?  Just noticed they changed the name of the dvd css lib they scan for.  No longer does it look for libdvdcss.dll in windows.  It's now looking for the properly named libdvdcss-2.dll.   I used to wonder why they didn't look for the correct name, or even both.  Now they do. 

Not documented, of course!

But the addition of +Intel Quick Sync Video support makes up for it in the time I'll save over the next week transcoding kids DVDs for them.  Even on my old Sandy Bridge box it's 3x faster for similar quality settings.

Wasted the time building #libdvdcss 1.3.0 for windows with #MinGW.  I'll post it somewhere for all to use.

Got clickjacked from visiting +SourceForge  tonight. It injected a +Mozilla Firefox  add-on silently. FAIL Mozilla!  #epicfail  
Kind of amusing though, as it was trying to load JavaScript to re-direct me to some horrible string of alphabet soup site off cloudfront.net but I run with JavaScript disabled.   It's really not safe out there.

in the past I have formally filed a complaint with +SourceForge support on this kind of abuse, and they just acted like: oh, well, you get what you get; we cannot control our advertisers

I REALLY dislike when I waste a pile of time because a projects documentation stinks.   I shouldn't have to experiment to see WTF you've changed from version to version, or grab your source and wade through trying to work it out.   Yes I know Open Source software is the worst at this, but in this case it was ISV code.

So I took another chance after my carrier updated the OS on my phone and +SoftCard (formerly ISIS Mobile Wallet - unofficial)  changed their name.    So still  does not work at ANY vendor on their search page. Used to work just fine.  Not sure exactly when it stopped working but their support has been VERY VERY poor.  No help at all in attempting to resolve this problem.   Sadly for them,Google Wallet works just fine at ALL these vendors and I can't imagine Apple pay will have this kind of problem.  Asking around seems people have mixed results with the app and Softcard in general.. Come on +SoftCard (formerly ISIS Mobile Wallet - unofficial)  get your Customer Service act together.  This is the 21st century.  It shouldn't be this hard to help you to help yourselves.  Debug-enabled app, logging customers can send in and compare to the backend and vendor logs, etc.   Very sad to see this level of marketing blitz with this little backend expertise to KEEP the customer.  Shame on you.

Food was excellent. Owner stayed open a bit extra for us too. My daughter thought her queenie's ice cream afterwards was the best she ever had, too.
