What's a Data Model ?
A Data Model is a document that summarizes all the data your application is going to manage. The base elements are "items" (or Configuration Items, objects, ...), e.g.: I'm a farmer, and I want to manage my fields. My Data Model is: Fields (name,crop,status...

It looks like it really doesn't work at all.pitiful picture matching algorithm, no notion of 3D or textile flow. nice try but it's a prototype. Gotta trust Cisco to make such a nice video about such a glitchy product.

I may have missed it while listening to the other water effects videos, but did you try floor varnish like Klear / Future (used in air modelling apparently), and simply pure acrylic medium ?

The first (floor varnish) apparently dries to rock solid, and could do everything but the gel surface I guess.

I'm trying to find something that's not an art product and therefore more affordable.

No, I have never tried just pouring Future.  That is an interesting idea, but I suspect it would only work for shallow pours (1/8").  If you give it a go.  I would love to see your results.  I'm always interested in new ways of doing water.  :)

Tweeting during Events : Is event promotion more important than attention ?
There is a definite trend (at least in the startup world) of events that push people to tweet about them. Startup Weekend is especially involved in that, spending several minutes every weekend to push people to tweet. Not only that, but there are "tweet scr...

Performance matters
If spending a few days on improving overall performance can save you 30% of your server costs, you should probably do it. That means  getting rid of your prototyping language for something more fit for production (drop ruby/php, get python or drop java/pyth...

I bought a Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini (i9506) from Price-Guard on the 9th of January 2015. The phone arrived defective, so I contacted Price-Guard for a solution. At first, Price-Guard didn't want to pay for the shipping, although their responsibility as a seller was to deliver a working device. Then, after insisting a lot, I offered to have it repaired by the Samsung repair service for Belgium, as that would cost less shipping, which they agreed to pay for through a refund (i.e. using my money to fix their mistake). After accepting to that, the phone was sent to the repair service, and came back with the same problem. Not wanting to deal with Samsung's horrible customer service anymore, I contacted Price-Guard for a refund, which they declined, as well as a return with free shipping for repairs. Unfortunately, due to Price-Guard's delay tactics, I was past the PayPal delay and wasn't able to get any kind of pressure on them for a resolution (luckily, PayPal has changed to 180 days now). If you can avoid them, do it, you'd much rather deal with more respectable and honest companies that will actively respect their share of the sales contract instead of actively trying to discourage you from obtaining justice. If you've already purchased from them, good luck, if I end up finding a solution I'll post it here for sure. And here's what Price-Guard AG had to say about their unsatisfied customer's right to feedback: "Also please consider that defamation can have legal consequences."

Excellent, went there with a Bongo and I must say it's better than quite a few restaurants in the same category.

Un dentiste de première classe, avec une approche scientifique, un contact respectueux et agréable, des explications claires, une vue relaxante et un résultat excellent. Je n'ai consulté que trois autres dentistes depuis le dentiste de famille étant petit, celui-ci était de loin le meilleur. First class dentist, scientific approach, good contact, clear explanations, relaxing view, great results too. I've had three other dentists since the family dentist, this one is by far the best.

Got our tickets at 15:46. One hour later, we hear the museum is closing in 15 minutes. Nobody told us when we bought, and they refused to let us come back the next day.
