I like the glass better. Here, mommy, you can drink from the bottle.

A screenshot from a real estate listing. The text says "sale/list 94.9%", but the graph of the same start shows about 80%... Which one is right?

Come on #redfin clean it up.

I was falling into a deep despair caused by the epic fail of House of Cards Season 3. This brought me back from the edge. Prozac is going to go out of business!

So I found a file on a server at work called "2q".  After a bit of pondering and testing, I know how it got there:

Edit a file in vi and instead of typing ":wq" (write quit) you accidentally type ":w2q" and it will create a file called "2q".  That's an easy to see typo, but unexpected behavior.

Having a number in there is key.  If you type ":wqq", you get an error, not a file named "qq"... likewise with other letters.  If you want to write to a file named "q", you have to say ":w q" (with a space).

If you see any stray files called "2q", this may be how they got there.

She has a hard time with the 'W' in waffle so she says stuff like, "daddy, make awful."

As phones get bigger, pants pockets need to get deeper. I have a couple pair of jeans that push my phone into my hip when I sit.

My predictions for the Apple Watch.

It's a nice design and has lots of fancy features, but I think it's Achilles' heel is the 18 hour battery. As Apple explains, rechargeable batteries have a limited number of charging cycles. With an 18 hour battery, you'll have to go through a full charge cycle every day. Compare that to a #Pebble which only needs charged one a week.

https://www.apple.com/batteries/service-and-recycling/

Going on a short trip? Staying overnight somewhere? Or even just a late night out? You'll end up with a paper weight on your wrist.

How long before that 18 hour life starts to become noticeably shorter? We've all seen that happen with our phones. Over time, the battery just doesn't last as long as it used to. Of course Apple says that's what you can expect with "typical usage". I'm sure there will be lots of people playing with their shiny new toys, trying out all kinds of apps only to find that the battery is dead before they get home.

BTW: it's not to late to back the new Pebble Time, the most funded project on Kickstarter, ever.
Pebble Technology is raising funds for Pebble Time - Awesome Smartwatch, No Compromises on Kickstarter! Color e-paper smartwatch with up to 7 days of battery and a new timeline interface that highlights what's important in your day.

Feature request for the unix "tail" command:  an argument that changes the titlebar of the terminal window (to something like "tail /file/name").

If you've ever come back to a terminal and wondered, "Is this window tailing a log file or did I start that process from the command line?"  This is what you need.  In that uncertain state, you don't want to press ^C for fear that it's not tail that you're killing, but the important process itself... and there's been enough output that you can't scroll back to the last prompt.

I guess for now, I'll make an alias that does that.
