Messing around with FaceOff for a little bit. You take an existing picture or snap one with the camera, then it detects the face(s) and allows you to overlay another picture.

I'd actually like to use this for privacy concerns. If you take a photo of stranges you mustn't or don't want them to be recognized in the picture.
Unfortunately FaceOff doesn't allow me to tweak the size of the area covering a face. I filed a feature request https://bugs.launchpad.net/faceoff/+bug/1480705

Finally got OTA-5 on my BQ E4.5  Not sure how I feel about the new icons yet to be perfectly honest. The hollow envelope and the non-wavy wireless may need to grow on me a bit.

I properly like the non-wavy wireless. Not sure about the hollow envelope myself

"The most precious elements we find on Earth aren’t necessarily the ones that have the greatest variety of uses, the most beautiful, or that enable the most effective solutions to a problem. Rather, they’re the ones that are indispensable for any particular application.

As it turns out, this is the case for practically all elements: there are applications each element is uniquely suited for, and no other element has the same exact properties. The most precious elements of all, therefore, are the rarest ones that we can put to use."

For each pure element, there’s an abundance in our Solar System that’s relatively consistent across where we look, with only the gravitational gradient in our Solar System’s formation responsible for the differences. However, our Earth is huge and differentiated, and even our richest mines pale in comparison to another location: just beneath the surface of asteroids. Could asteroid mining pave the way to riches from space in our future?
Why look for rare, precious metals on Earth when you can find them here?

Just found out from a bizarre problem report that I can in fact access my Sent folder - and other folders - within Dekko. Via the drawer on the left. By hitting the menu item that carries the name of the currently opened account and sits right under the list of accounts. It has no counter and uses an account type icon rather than an inbox. I had apparently skipped that all this time because I didn't realize that item served a purpose.

I found out about this long time ago but I agree that it's not discoverable enough for users. :)

I was mistaken to think Don't Crash was a terrible game... Sheepop is so much worse, the number of ways to fail miserably is endless! Now excuse me, I need to get back and drown/ shoot into the sky some more.

It has a usability issue; when you lose your sheep, it should put you straight back in the game and not ask you to click on Start.

In addition, the mode "lose a life and start from scratch" is not good. It should have levels with a set of jumps, then as you progress, you only have to complete only the last uncompleted level.

disclaimer: reached up to jump 10.

"This video is private."

Yes. I know. It was shared with me. I tried to watch it. Seems like account switching is still fundamentally broken and it assumes the wrong account when trying to watch it. Awesome. Not.

Don't Crash is such a horrible game. Even after I figured out where the other driver changes the lane the difference in speed makes it hard to avoid a collision, struggling to get past 11 laps. Admittedly the graphics are really cute.

I enjoy it. Got 17
Starts to slow in my opinion and the difficulty suddenly spikes up but I like it.
