On Saturday January 24th, Amazon will make its excellent original series Transparent free to stream, even for those without Amazon Prime. More importantly though, Amazon is discounting Amazon Prime, the best deal in tech at $99, to $72 for the day. Prime is basically never discounted, and $72 is cheaper than the previous $79 that the service went for for years. [Amazon Prime]

This is my first YouTube video. I have been walking to get back into shape and noticed that my shadow looked pretty cool, all stretched out on the yellow lines.

I know, it is pretty lame and low quality. Hey, you gotta learn somehow.

I hate that you gotta hold the phone to get the video, so what you see isn't quite the same as what I saw.

I am so glad that Guinness chose to go this route rather than showing yet another group of snotty hipsters sitting around with smug looks on their faces. This is what real friends do. It makes me proud to be a Guinness fan.

Just discovered this site. Hooray!
I am going to start listening to Walden, by Henry David Thoreau while I wait for my eyeball-headache to go away.

Here's an idea: Windows should have an update mode. When in this mode the computer should only be allowed to connect to and or receive connections from the Windows Update Service. This mode should be turned on by default when you first install windows and there should be an option in the Safe Mode menu to boot up into update mode. Just as when in safe mode it tells you in the corners of the window that you are in safe mode there should be similar text in the corners of the screen to let you know you are in update mode. Once you have finished with the updates you should be able to just click a button on the screen to exit update mode and use your computer normally.

This should eliminate the problem of having viruses get on your computer before you even have a chance to install the updates.

Oh, once the computer is in update mode it should stay that way until you turn it off, even through reboots.

What is the name of that comic book he buys in the first couple of seconds? Is that Testostroman?

Or is it "TESTRO TEAM"?

Either way, I think that is pretty hilarious.

Also, the only Chase commercial that I like. It is very human and the guy is such a regular guy instead of some rich or famous person.

Survey Question:

Who can read actual words in their dreams?

I often dream that I am reading something, or that there is some form with information on it, or that I am writing something. However, I can never actually tell what the words are. They shape-shift before my very eyes (OK, before my dream-eyes). I can't make my hands form actual letters and I end up with large thick scribbles. I will sometimes think I know what the words mean, but when I refer back to them, cannot see for sure that what I think is what they really say.

Pretty standard for an eclectic style coffee shop. Not much room inside but a huge back patio area.

Their new address is 9721 e East Highway 290, Austin, TX but they are not open for business yet (12/21/2013). Their phone message says to give them another couple of weeks to get things "squared away."

Every time I walk in there is at least one, and often two people just waiting to help me. When you tell them what you need they will walk you back to where it is and even pull it off the shelf and put it in your hands. The only way they could be more helpful is if they drove it over to my house for me.

This is a "bulk" outlet store. Just a bunch of table/bin- like things with piles of mostly crap. You pay by weight. However, you MAY find some bargains.

This is a very well laid-out clinic. Unlike other hospitals and clinics where you go in the front door and then have to wind your way through a bunch of hallways and poorly marked doors, this clinic has almost everything open to a large central mall-like area. So, when you go the the information desk and ask them where something is, they can just point to it from where they are sitting and you can walk there in a few steps. My hat's off to the architects.

OK, this is the most eclectic coffee shop I have found in this town. It is a great place to get comfortable with five - count 'em - FIVE sofas.
