@primawesome: Let's have a race. You try to get an appointment with a licensed mental health professional and I'll try to get a gun. Ready? I'm done.

I'm happy with the app so far. With one BIG exception. I'm using a Gear S2 and Galaxy S7. When the alarm goes off at 5:45, I dismiss it then save my sleep session. A couple of minutes later, it automatically begins recording a new sleep session. I cancel it, and a couple minutes later it starts yet another. The only way to get it to stop (that I've found so far) is to restart both my watch and my phone.

+Alan Armstrong After finishing sleep tracking double tap the home button of the gear s2 and close all apps. Make sure you activated that double tap feature in the gear's settings (settings > double tap home button > recent apps).
I had the same problem. 😉

I need to play with this kind of coding again. It is so adaptable and versatile...and not too tough.
Dear very value reader, A long time ago, I published an article about the shortest path between two points on Earth. These are actually curved on a Mercator map and are definitely NOT straight lines. See this article to understand why it is so. To make this concept of distorted paths more didactic, I decided to … Continue reading Shortest Distance on the Mercator map- The Web App →

Which box hides the all-knowing ButterBurger®? Guess for a random chance to win delicious prizes like ButterBurgers® for a year and gain enlightenment. Play up to three times a day.

It is missing one track, but otherwise should replicate James Gunn's GotG "Awesome Mix vol. 0" that was publicized earlier today.

Get a chromecast. It is a spiffy little device. And Play Music is a swell service.

Looking for meaningful work.

It's like I just got a do-over. Back to school and a new wife. Not bad for 40.

I should have come here sooner. Super-friendly staff. No-frills, homey atmosphere. And quite good food. Fair portions for the price. Definitely worth getting cheese on your entree...it goes under some sort of blast-furnace...resulting in that perfectly browned surface.

Enjoy them before the weather turns. Very cozy, outdoor seating area. We took shade under the hops vines. The beers were all quite good....covering a fair variety of styles.

Come for the coffee, stay for the waffles....and maybe a beer....plus live music. It is tucked away, half under-ground....easy to miss. But the staff is friendly. The coffee is good. The menu is more than just sandwiches and scones. Plus they have a small, but quality tap list.

Avoid this store. They will lie to your face. They will cheat you. And that's after waiting for an hour. Seriously, this is the most dishonest business I have ever dealt with.

A "dive bar" in the best sense of the term. With karaoke. And food from the Smack Shack (the seasoning on their fries is the best).

Nice room. Not over the top, but clean, comfortable, and it let me get two good nights of rest. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Clean. Reasonably well maintained. But do not expect service of any sort. The jacuzzi was cold (swimming pool was ok). Asked for extra pillows and was met with indignation: your room has six pillows (for two queen beds). Also found two old, partly filled bottles of milk on window sill behind blackout curtain. You can find better rooms for similar or lower rates 20 minutes away in LaCrosse.
