Wow, I didn't realize JavaScript was so powerful.  Makes me want to do some hello world programming and get a feel for it.  Not sure what would be required to set up such a dev environment yet.

Emscripten, a C/C++ to JavaScript compiler, emits asm.js code to make it run with near native performance on several browsers.
Asm.js is a specification defining a subset of JavaScript that is highly optimizable. This article looks at exactly what is permitted in the asm.js subset, what improvements it confers, where and how you can make use of it, and further resources and examples.

Proud of my neighborhood!
Step aside Boston, move over Baltimore – Minneapolis is home to the country's best art district, according to USA Today's 10Best Readers' Choice awards. The newspaper says the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District is filled with studios, galleries and performance spaces in repurposed industrial buildings. Not only is the area home to more than 400 independent artists, but also numerous annual events such as Art-A-Whirl, Art Attack and a Fine Arts S...

Minneapolis used to be number #1 for community theater groups too.  One needs something to do during the winter around here.

I used to recommend Lenovo laptops, but take note. I for one will never  buy from Lenovo again.
Lenovo’s chief technology officer, Peter Hortensius, acknowledged that "we didn’t do enough" due diligence before installing Superfish, but that the company doesn’t believe laptop owners were harmed by the app.

I would probably buy from Lenovo, but then again the only thing I bought from them is a Chromebook.

My dear Esther is having so much trouble right now, she is battling Graves disease which threatens her eyesight.  Even the smallest donation can make a difference toward her well being. Please help her out if you possibly can.
Esther needs your help battling Graves disease. Her medical treatments and other expenses are high. Her familiy and friends are pitching in to help, but she needs your help too. Donate $150 and help her pay for a week of medicine and acupunture treatments.

I wonder if we can get copies of this in the US
 
Tomorrow, Charlie Hebdo will publish 3 million issues, instead of its regular run of 60,000 copies.

Usry was lucky. The forensic crime scene DNA sample came from semen and likely was single source (meaning it contained DNA from only one person). This means that it was relatively easy for the cops to compare Usry’s DNA against the forensic sample and determine conclusively the two didn't match. In many cases today, however, forensic samples come instead from “touch” DNA—miniscule samples of DNA deposited on physical surfaces that people have touched. Touch DNA is less reliable and harder to match both because it may not include enough DNA for meaningful interpretation and because it often contains DNA from multiple persons—some of whom may have had no connection to the crime at all. With touch DNA, lab analysts may see a match where none exists. Just this year in San Francisco, the San Francisco Chronicle revealed a crime lab analyst had been making assumptions about poor-quality, incomplete genetic evidence and testified at trial that one of the profiles she generated matched the defendant, which was false. This analyst’s misconduct could affect as many as 1,400 cases. When touch DNA analysis expands to include familial markers, the risk of misidentification only increases.
The New Orleans Advocate recently published a shocking story that details the very real threats to privacy and civil liberties posed by law enforcement access to private genetic databases and familial DNA searching.

I happened to watch some of the Oscars last night and was delighted to find myself utterly amazed by Lady Gaga singing the hell out of a Sound of Music medly.   Wow, Lady Gaga, you nailed it!   What a talent.

Childish thoughts about avoiding insults are beneath the truly essential dignity of free speech. "Je Suis Charlie" demonstrates this truth by daring to insult. It is a perfect symbol of a society which recognizes the sovereignty of free speech.

I congratulate Charlie Hebdo for their compassionate message, a very difficult position to take when friends have been assassinated.

Introduction
Spending a lot of time not meditating

Poet, Philosopher, Computer geek.

In the Geek realm I mainly do old school IBM mainframe programming, I am one of the last great COBOL programmers. This is actually true if you want to hire me! I also dabble in web stuff and just about any other aspects of computers.

I am working on attaining enlightenment in this lifetime so I have lots of free time spent not meditating!

I enjoy tai chi, photography and music especially classical guitar and shakuhachi flute. If you want to hear about those things drop me a note so I can add you to the appropriate Circle.
