Every swimming pool in the US should have two sections: One for normal people, and one that requires you to sign a death waiver so you can engage in death-defying activities such as horseplay or going down a kiddie slide with your child in your lap.

One of the goals as a parent (if not the goal) is to make your kids a better version of yourself. That entails teaching them everything you know and make sure they go beyond that.

I ran some 12 gauge wires outside on the balcony and backyard recently, and of course I fucked it up royally despite the loving guidance of several Google searches.

I'm thinking back about all the times my dad tried to teach me about electrical engineering and I blew him off. Luckily, I could discuss the wiring with him over IM yesterday, and he quickly pointed out what a schmuck I am and showed me how to wire it properly.

Makes me wonder if my kids are even interested in me passing everything on to them. Reminds me of Maximilian Schell's monologue in Little Odessa.
Anyway. The wiring is done, and I feel accomplished. Thanks Dad.

Summer is here with long, sunny days. On some days, we almost overproduce 10kWh, despite me often gratuitously recharging the car to get more electric miles so I can get a higher score on voltstats.net. Can't wait for good EV SUVs to come so we can replace the Highlander as well.

Google TV Discussion  - 
 
Is there a good way to remotely control Google TV without turning the TV on? I sometimes like to use my GTV as a music player, and I can't seem to find a way to control Google Music reliably without also turning the TV on, which I would like to avoid.

I tried CheapCast, but it's unreliable - if it works at all, it only does so for a few minutes, then it loses the connection. Also, it only works via other Android devices, not within Chrome.

I'm using Chromemote to control the GTV when the TV is on, but it would nice to have something like a "remote desktop" while it's off. (I could imagine that there is no way to RDP into GTV when the TV is off because it probably simply won't render anything without a valid HDMI signal).

This is with a NSZ-GS7.

Like driver's license pictures, a profile picture needs to be retaken every now and then. Here's mine, 9 years ago, and now.

Sigh, my son learned the words "later" and "not now". We now have the master of procrastination in the house.

Haven't shared things in a while. I like how this pretty accurately portrays what it looks like.

As for +Hashem AL-ghaili - lots of interesting posts about science. Follow him.
 
Almost all of you have seen them.

Anyways, the phenomenon is called bue field entoptic. The dots are white blood cells moving in the capillaries in front of the retina of the eye.

Story
Introduction
If you add me to your circles, you can expect public posts with the following content:

Photography - My pictures pale in comparison to those of real photographers, but you might like a couple of the shots I post.

Video Games - I just make them, barely play them anymore these days, but I'll post random things about either playing or making games. Note that I will not post about my current employer other than forwarding press releases.

Filmmaking - There'll be an occasional post about that.

Android - I might post things about Android. For information about my apps, add +EboAndroidApps to your circles.

Check out some of my favorite contributions: My photography album and typical post #1, #2, #3.
