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 →

Free Culvers FTW!
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.

Get a chromecast. It is a spiffy little device. And Play Music is a swell service.
 
If you managed to hold off on buying the Chromecast during Black Friday, you'll be glad to know that Google is now offering a $20 Play Store credit toward purchasing movies and other digital content to stream to the device. The deal is in addition to three months of free Google Play Music… #android

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

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.

Plenty of space. Big tables. Electricity. Great study space. Oh, and great coffee, too. They actually brew and spice their own chai!

I can't say that they are the least expensive option. But I do trust them with my car(s). They probably do diagnose more "problems" than a lot of other places, but I think its because they actually look at the car as a whole. And most of the time they are very willing to address only the most important items. Never have I felt forced or coerced into paying for unnecessary services. They almost always finish "on time". They will explain the problems and give estimates on everything. Free loaners available. And if you live nearby and keep the coupon mailers they send out, I think they are reasonably priced.

I like their lunch buffet. For 8 bucks you get salad, pasta, pizza, and a soft drink. It isn't the biggest buffet around (normally just cheese, veggie, and meat for pizza options), but it is a decent quality (I actually enjoy their salads).
