I just learned BB King passed away yesterday.

We got to hang out for an entire day for an ad campaign we did for Life magazine. He of course plays as he breaths. So we were gifted with live performance through out the day.

As mentioned in an update to my post on the HNAP bug in the DIR-890L, the same bug was reported earlier this year in the DIR-645, and a patch was released. D-Link has now released a patch for the DIR-890L as well. The patches for both the DIR-645 and DIR-890L are identical, so I'll only examine ...

A new book about the Commodore Amiga came out.

Hint if you have just gotten Lollipop (android 5.x) for a Galaxy S4 and TouchWiz crashes everytime you drag an icon or widget: disable all the gestures and motions in settings

The I9505 model? I've seen indications that there is firmware I could force into mine, but so far I've not bothered as I only really use it for Ingress anyway.

We have many Mozilla contributors (Mozillians) from Africa who (among other things) localize Firefox into a ton of languages.  This continues putting the power of the Internet into the hands of the people all over the world, and if anything mobile devices are more critical there as there's less fixed/wired infrastructure (and in many areas power is less-than-reliable).

Some interesting anecdotes about the accidents the Google self-driving car has seen.

https://medium.com/backchannel/the-view-from-the-front-seat-of-the-google-self-driving-car-46fc9f3e6088

The short summary is that the car itself has not yet been at fault in an accident, but it sometimes gets rear-ended, hit by cars running lights/stop signs, and has to avoid drivers driving the wrong way on the street.  In other words, other drivers suck :)

This encourages me that if a significant fraction of cars become self-driving, we could see a much lower accident rate.  That's always been the hope, but this is looking like supportive evidence.
After 1.7 million miles we’ve learned a lot — not just about our system but how humans drive, too.

DRM... grrr. Sometimes unavoidable - but should not be in a coffee maker!
 
Important note from reader @Nash076 on Twitter: "Notice how they never say, 'We'll stop using digital rights management on our coffee maker.'"

It would be interesting to know how they dated it, but I presume it's pretty solid from the report (will watch Science News/etc for more reports).  It's impressive the amount we've been able to figure out from DNA analysis.  It also shows that there was considerable complexity to "stone-age" humans -- and related species.   Not to mention interbreeding...

Great! Fantastic food, top-notch service, nice ambiance. And very friendly to kids. It's not on their online menu, but they have a kids menu, crayons, pages to color. They have a cool room for larger parties (up to ~8) in their wine cellar. Quieter, private, charming. The food is wonderful - everyone loved what they got. The braised short ribs were fall-apart tender. The salad special was fantastic. And the chocolate souffle - don't miss it, and tell them you want it when you order as it takes ~40 minutes to make.

Excellent. Really good toppings, especially the mushrooms and sausage. Sauce is good; doesn't overpower other flavors by being too sweet. Looking forward to trying their other menu items. And delivers (hot!) to Valley Forge Mountain!

Ate in the Japanese room upstairs. Wonderful sushi; especially the tempura lobster roll and the Rainbow roll. They have a few very nice traditional tatami rooms as well, and some nook-type western seating plus an area of tables (but not a huge expanse, it's reasonably intimate). Very nice.

Total hole-in-the-wall, crowded downstairs (there are more tables upstairs that get you away from the crush of people ordering). Wonderful food. We especially liked the Chicken Bhartha, the Paneer Chili Masala, their Naan, and the Paneer Saag. The Chicken Tikka Masala was quite good, and the chicken was especially tender. I would go there again in an instant. Anytime near dinnertime there's a serious crush downstairs to order. We ate there with two very young kids (upstairs), and they were very helpful and understanding about little kids not being very neat with eating rice.
