With the Windows 8 UI problems we have a golden opportunity to build a user base.  My father is an Ubuntu user and doesn't mind the desktop (I set up his icons on the left so his top 10 apps are right there) but I hate it.  This may be a product of the fact I switch between a lot of applications or maybe I'm just too set in my ways, but I've never liked it.  I've tried to like it.  I really have.  I think the average Windows user (who asks "does this computer have the internet?" when they go shopping at Best Buy") will say "oh great... where's the start thingy.  How do I start the internet?"  Cinnamon (as an example but not an endorsement) is closer to that traditional start menu experience.

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense."

Hmm... What happened to our friends in Japan that were going to sink us with their huge trade deficits?

So I'm reading this post on Ars about Dell piloting a Linux laptop for developers (they call it sputnik).  I follow the links to the hardware and it's fairly disappointing.  Not everyone who is a developer does the same type of work, but almost every developer will tell you that screen real estate is key.  What I can't figure out is why they settled on a (relatively) pricey ultra book with a basic 1366x720 display.  At a minimum 1440x900.  My mac is great at 1650x1080.  I sling Java code so I like lots of RAM (8 gigs is a good start).  Other developers are front end developers and mostly edit CSS, JavaScript and HTML.  But in either case, being able to put more info on one screen at one time means more productivity.  Sorry about the rant - but crappy displays for developers are a pet peeve of mine.

I boarded my dog for the first time at Healthy Hound Playground over a long weekend. It was a really good experience. I had a chance to look around before bringing my dog over. The facility is new and has plenty of spaces for dogs to play. The kennels are large. It turned out that we wouldn't be able to pick up the dog on Monday, and they were really flexible about picking up on Tuesday. When my wife picked up our dog she brought our daughter, who received a tour of the facility. My wife noted they had a large garage door open, letting plenty of fresh air into the kennels. While our dog was there we received a text picture of our dog happily lazing on a one of the little dog beds. I would strongly recommend Healthy Hound Playground to anyone in the area looking to board their dogs. My dog was given attention, treated very well, was allowed to safely socialize with other dogs, and I like the facility. I liked the fact they were very open and willing to let you look around and view their facility. I would recommend them to anyone.

What I especially like about Il Fornaio is the outdoor seating. I highly recommend on a good summer day (in the 70's or low 80's) to sit outside. My wife and I like to go there maybe once a month in the summer. Also, a great happy hour place. Nice bar.
