I adore awesome hacks like this. What do you do when you need to replace a doorknob, thinking it's a simple job, but instead find out the hole in the door is too small? Older doorknobs took 1 7/8" holes. You might find one in a second-hand shop, but not a new one. This YouTube video shows a brilliantly simple, easy, precise method for enlarging the hole to fit a modern 2 1/8" doorknob.

While most analytics tools are set up for quantified information it's often the unstructured data that provides the context and the meaning companies need to make that information useful.

Of course I am laughing.
The Muskogee County sheriff said a member of the group guarding an Oktaha gun shop accidentally shot himself Tuesday.

Being a menace to everyone around them is why people like myself will call in firing range management if someone isn't being appropriately careful. Having served as Range Safety Officer for various competitive shooting events has also developed a sense of entitlement when it comes to telling other people on the range to do things right.

The Internet, including you reading this right now, still depends on obscure programs such as NTP, which are run out of home offices by a single person.
NTP, the protocol that keeps time across the internet, was in danger of running out of money. The Linux Foundation's Core Infrastructure Initiative (CII) has stepped up to keep it going.

I'm sure he can produce a back-up plan if we pay him enough to take care of business.

Isn't this special, more value-add from Microsoft!
 
Note to support techs. Do your customers realize what they are getting for their brand new Windows 10 installation? Do you?

Sadly, for the majority of Windows users, this will be business as usual. And yeah, this has been known for a while now but that doesn't decrease the level of audacity Microsoft slings around, while stomping around inside your computer.

You have been digitally bitch-slapped.

How much will you simply accept before you realize that you no longer own your computer? If you cannot control what happens inside of your computer, then your computer is not yours. It is on lease from Microsoft.

And no, I am not condoning the pirating of software. Microsoft does this "to protect" honest users. My A$$. Even if you accept this for the reasons stated, what else is Microsoft doing inside your machine that you do not know about?

What you don't know won't hurt you, right?

And yeah, many people are stuck between the Windows/Office bookends, and sadly; many of you have to use it at home where you work after hours or telecommute. It sucks to be you, I understand.

But for others that remain within the Windows ranks just because you don't want to learn anything new? I suppose you are used to this kind of treatment. The part that disturbs me is that it doesn't bother you.

But as the last word, you are right. It's none of my business. Unfortunately, you are allowing Redmond to decide what is your business and what is not.

People change cola brands in a huff and never go back. What explains this inexplicable loyalty to the most expensive malware delivery system in the business?

HR may have grievances about this.

Google takes a new slant at home and small business Wi-Fi routers. For anyone who has ever hated setting up Wi-Fi access points, this could be a real winner.
Google has gotten tired of insecure, hard-to-set up Wi-Fi access points so it's offering its own model.

Kdenlive is glorious. I use it to make screencasts. Don't leave home without it.
I give this a solid meh. The building is old, and suffers the same flaws as every hotel I've ever stayed in-- too damn noisy. The doors slam, and you can hear your neighbors talking, their alarm clocks, blaring their TVs, and thundering up and down the hallways. It is sheltered from traffic noise, so that's one plus. The rooms are small, the beds hard, and our hot water came and went, which made washing up or taking a shower unnecessarily adventurous. The staff are excellent and helpful. The main thing I want from a hotel is a good night's sleep, and I've yet to find one that has a clue about this.
