The real motivation for Sandstorm: Enabling open source web apps. Because without federated hosting, they just don't work.

Via a friend* on Google+.  I love Fugues.

*This brings up an interesting problem.  Google+ wouldn't let me reshare my friend's post to "public" because my friend only shared it with a limited audience.  But I think it's cool if lots of people see it, so I'd rather share it publicly, so I end up not giving my friend credit.  Is there a better solution?

For those of you who somehow didn't find 2048 distracting enough, here's an infinite version where you build up notes along the circle of fifths. It plays the notes as you match them, which is strangely soothing and hypnotic, even when it's somewhat discordant. The infinity is handled by simply trying to get as many cycles around the circle as you can.

A warning: new tiles are only generated from within the five notes prior to the highest note you have on the board. This means that when you open up a new note, any notes you have from the "oldest" note you still have on the board can easily be stranded: no new tiles will show up which match them. This definitely adds some challenge.

This circle of fifths game, 2048 Infinite, is a musical game that will help you memorize and understand the circle of fifths.

This is really funny.

"An impossibly large buffer error is even worse, because these errors often linger in the background, quietly overwriting your state with evil; if a misaligned memory access is like a criminal burning down your house in a fail-stop manner, an impossibly large buffer error is like a criminal who breaks into your house, sprinkles sand atop random bedsheets and toothbrushes, and
then waits for you to slowly discover that your world has been tainted by madness."
 
I am a systems programmer.  Mickens's rant is painful, funny, and true.

Never too crowded and the food is decent. I eat here every week with my friend who lives in Sunnyvale. The vegetarian menu is extensive. There's a muted TV in the corner that's always showing cooking shows.

This store is not very good about taking old inventory off the shelves. I sometimes notice expired things (e.g. milk, olive oil) and just today brought their attention to a whole stack of bags of mouldy tortillas (not sure whether they were past their expiry dates). I like the self-service checkout lanes. I never have to wait. Produce selection isn't great. Much easier to find packaged food.
