This is pretty accurate....  (And yes, I'm here in Pomona getting ready for the DARPA Robotics Challenge.)

+Karl Auerbach Oh, bummer. I would think they'd keep this up until we have Lt. Commander Data.

Yesterday several of us were seeing HTTP redirect loops.  It turns out we were all on business or home nets served by Comcast.  Now, one would not get HTTP redirects for layer 2 problems.  Rather, redirects are layer 4 (HTTP) things.  And that, in turn suggests that somebody was doing man-in-the-middle interception of HTTP and HTTPS traffic but doing it badly.  The fingers are all pointing at Comcast, and the finger gets bigger because it is well known that Comcast does this kind of thing on their semi-public wi-fii deployment.

I just came across a copy of my old CaveBear Catalog - our slogan "If we have it, you don't need it."

It's a bit dated - who even remembers ISDN?  But products such as the Percussive Maintenance Kit are as useful now as they were then.

I've always like the Armor Piercing Packet.  Since the catalog was published I've also invented the Packet of Mass Destruction.  It's just like an Armor Piercing Packet, but packaged as a jumbogram for that extra throw weight.

The full catalog is at: http://cavebear.com/archive/cavebear/catalog.html
The CaveBear ARMOR PIERCING PACKET (The CAPP). If you are like me, you find firewalls to be a nuisance and a bother -- So the CaveBear invented the CaveBear Armor Piercing Packet, aka the CAPP. The CAPP is great for getting through those firewalls -- no muss, no fuss.

+Karl Auerbach In the event you claim any exclusive rights to that slogan, please disclaim it so that the several catalogs more deserving are free to use it.

I've been using the big brother (the GH4) of this camera for about six months.  I am very impressed with the Micro Four Thirds (MFT) sensor format.  I previously used Canons, but for shooting 4K video in decent light, these seem every bit as good, and in many ways, better.  The only drawback so far is that the depth of field of the MFT lenses is greater than full-size sensor cameras, so it's harder to fuzz out the background when shooting.
Panasonic has been a huge proponent of 4K-ready cameras, starting with the Lumix GH4 and LX100. A few days ago, the Lumix G7 joined that group. The recen

I have several very strong religious beliefs that I demand that the government and other accommodate:

  - My religion is against war.  It requires that I not fund war, particularly not pay taxes to support the military.

  - My religion requires that I drive in the left lane, even HOV lanes.  My religion precludes any HOV identification stickers on the car.

  - My religion requires that I not work on days that are either a full or new moon.

  - My religion requires that I wear shorts and t-shirts (or Hawaiian shirts) at work.

What the Supreme Court seems to have done today is to create a minefield for employers and declare open season on claims of religious beliefs for this and that.
Finding a civil rights cause that increasingly brings together conservatives and liberals, the Supreme Court told employers Monday that they had an “affirmative” duty under federal anti-discrimination law to accommodate the religious practices of employees and job applicants.

+Megan Owen - There is nothing that is common sense about the exercise of religion - religion is primitive mythology.  And toleration of religion means accepting people to practice that mythology even if it harms society in general or non-consenting third parties.  That principle or religion-uber-alles has been pounded into US law by our Supreme Court in cases such as Hobby Lobby.  And, age of the so-called religion doesn't matter - here in the USA we have what is 100% allowed as a religion - Scientology.

Just today here in California a student at a graduation has been allowed to use a religious claim to override various laws that protect eagles.

So I hardly consider this nonsense - these kind of wacko claims are made here in the US all the time.  But now they are getting more legal acceptance than ever before.

Today I have encountered and am now hearing reports from other of various websites triggering infinite recursion of redirects.  Something odd may be happening out there.

Update: Looks like perhaps Comcast has gone bonkers.

Here's a video of one of the proposed routes for the California HSR from the San Fernando Valley (where I grew up) out to Palmdale.

One of the pearls of wisdom of legal process (from my contracts professor):

If you can't get 'em on the swings, you'll get 'em on the merry-go-round.

You just can't get a more pearly pearl of wisdom than that gem.  (Oh, I just mixed a metaphor!)

Mixed metaphors are great if done artfully, as you have done.
