"Think, again." So very excited to explore this.

Perhaps the greatest photograph ever to grace the internet.
Bright Meteor over Los Angeles
Kevin: "Last night at 8:22pm a super bright meteor (also known as a bolide) lit up the skies of Southern California while I was shooting my friend in his T-Rex costume and Rocky the dog hiking above LA."

Biked into the #yeg river valley for some photos. Google caught some decent HDRs. Time-lapse clouds pending :)

I am unreasonably happy about this.
I'm enjoying the Youtube mixup of the SpaceX CRS-8 first stage landing with Lonely Island's "I'm on a boat" song. Congrats to everybody involved.

I'm not very hip, so the only other time I've heard that song is when somebody in my poker group is mangling it (horribly). I think it works better for Elon Musk, but maybe that is because I'm not losing money.

Just installed some mousetape as purchased from http://mousetape.com/, and I have to say I love the stuff.

I'd badly damaged the existing adhesive pads on my mouse doing another repair, and this totally repaired it!

I slid the mouse around on top of a sheet of fine 400 grit sandpaper until the existing pads were worn down and flattened, and then applied the tape. (pic below).

Mouse moves much smoother than I anticipated. Very pleased. I might do this to my other un-damaged mice next!
