This is what the internet looks like now

"You don't like MY politician, so YOU'RE a stupid meany! :-b. My politician is GREAT! If YOUR politician isn't MY politician, then I'll ignore everything good about your politician and focus on only the BAD of your politician and I'll make shit up if I can't find any AND I'll ignore all the bad of my politician and call you a liar if you bring any of HIS/HER bad stuff up! Nya nya nya nya! Boobie head! #MyPolitician2016!"

I'll be glad when this is over and the haters crawl back into their internet holes.

So, we're going to be able to pay for Netflix directly through Google Play. I presume it be 30% more though.

It's called a "convenience" fee.

Holy Crap! Someone accidentally gives away $132,000 of their #BitCoin trying to pay a cents pennies if a fee!
Among the many things that have held Bitcoin back from mainstream acceptance, even advanced users struggle with one huge issue: Bitcoin is confusing. One cryptocurrency enthusiast learned that the hard way, when a simple mistake ended up costing him a cool $132,000.

OK, so I had my wifey pick up some of this nutella stuff you guys have been raving about so I thought I'd try it to see what all the fuss was about.

My reaction... Meh! :-/ not that great. Not terrible.

So, looks like the tides are turning in favor of people realizing that exposing too much online is a bad idea, and that's bad for Facebook, which means it's GOOD for everyone else.
We’ve learned to protect our online image, but that's inconvenient for a site that wants every gory detail of our lives.

I should have just taken your word that you don't get it...

I attempted to explain all the ways in which an interest in guns can lead people to general knowledge and self discoveries.

Is an interest in guns the only way you can learn all that? No, my explicit point was that it can lead to very similar knowledge that other mechanical interests and physical disciplines can.

I said nothing of good or bad, I said better. As in more capable to understand and apply concepts learned. I made no moral judgement on an individual, you brought that into the conversation.

I think your objection is to why someone would attempt to understand psycology/sociology in the pursuit of self defense? One of many reasons is to learn how to spot interactions that are out of the baseline, and using that to avoid conflict, if not be at least aware that there could be a potential conflict brewing and who are the possible ring leaders.

If you are really interested, I suggest you read "Left of Bang " http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/1936891301/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1461809624&sr=1-1&pi=SY200_QL40&keywords=left+of+bang&dpPl=1&dpID=51DAA---GQL&ref=plSrch#productDescription_secondary_view_div_1461809639159

Story
Introduction
Programming is my passion.  My current side project is building GUI front ends to many of the Linux command line utilities.  The die hards may hate me for it, but the non-geeks will appreciate it.

I cut my binary teeth on 8-bit 6502 CPUs and have been heavily involved in software development ever since.  My true love in this field is getting under the hood and programming directly on the metal, though, that's impractical for most things today.

Read these guides:
I won't be discussing politics (at least, I'll try not to) because my primary reason for participating here to discuss science and technology.  Once in a while, some bill will come up that directly affects our technology and I'll speak up on those bills.  Oh, and since G+ is a global community, I guess I should point out that I'm a U.S. citizen and the bills I discuss will almost always be U.S. bills.

If you want to know what circles to place me in, here are some suggestions:
  • Anti-SOPA, Protect IP, etc...
  • Programmer
  • Android
  • .Net
  • ASP.Net
  • ASP.Net MVC
  • WebForms
  • WinForms
  • C#
  • Linux
  • Techie
  • Science Nerd
  • Space Nut
  • Robotics

I post content on all of those topics and those are the topics I am generally interested in reading as well.

Bragging rights
Vehemently disagree with Google+'s "real names" policy! I've lived through 8 bit, 16 bit, 32 bit, and now 64 bit computing from the inside out. My first computer had a 1Mhz processor, 64KB of RAM and a 140KB 5.25" floppy drive, no hard drive (had never even heard of one), and with it I had to walk up hill to school in 6 feet of snow, bar foot, BOTH WAYS and I liked it! My current computer has 4 2.4Ghz processors, 8GB RAM, 6TB of hard drive space and my phone is 800 times faster than that first computer and has more than 252,265 times as much RAM as my first computer and neither has enough space nor is fast enough and my kids get their homework assignments online and have never seen a record player. [Edit] We were cleaning out my parents' garage and now they've finally seen one!
Work
Occupation
I design and write software as both a hobby and a profession. I write about what I love to do on my blog and here. I value my privacy and that of my family emensely which is why you won't see a lot about my personal life here. This is an interactive outlet for my blog and for me to help people solve their technology problems in a more interactive and personal way than is possible with just the blog. Google just doesn't get it.
Garlic knots were fantastic. Pizza was really good. Service was polite.

Was very happy with how everything was handled with my new vehicle purchase. Gerrad was a great salesman. (Hope I spelled your name right!)

Kind of run down. Rooms smelled funny. Front office is across the street and down the road. Wi-fi was very weak. It's not the worst place and will do in a pinch, but I'd recommend finding another place. Two buildings. One on the beach where the office is, the other (the one we got placed in) was down the road and across the street.

My favorite BBQ place in Knoxville. Their thick sauce is incredible. I always order a chicken sandwich and sometimes macaroni & cheese.

Really, really good pizza, bread sticks, and sauce. Place is very clean, well lit, and clean. Did I say it was clean? It was very clean. I ate here MANY times the few times I stayed in Norwell.

A fairly dirty place, kind of run down, pool area was in disrepair and completely not useable, and unseemly characters walking around. Stay here only if you're in dire straights and have no where else to go. Keep your doors locked and sleep with your gun under your pillow. Room smelled funny (not a good funny). The girl behind the counter was very nice.
