Received, set up, and like the speakers I got for the office (M-Audio AV42s). Sadly but unsurprisingly, the monitor's audio output (from the HDMI or DisplayPort audio channel) is awful. I tried turning it down on the laptop in case it was distorting from being too loud, but no luck. I'm just using the laptop's headphone port now.

Ordered a bigger power strip, a cable clip for on the desk and some others for routing cables behind it, and rubber feet and double-stick tape for turning a couple of cinder blocks into speaker stands.

I'm really liking this space. It's much more comfortable and less depressing than just flopping on the couch with a laptop when I get home.
 
New home office setup:

Monitor is a Dell P2715Q mounted on an Ergomart SAA7000 so that I can actually read text at 3840x2160.
Keyboard is a Logitech K810, but will be replaced with my Happy Hacking Keyboard Lite 2 once I get it back from a friend.
Mouse is a Logitech T630, which I plan to replace with something full-size when I find something I like (suggestions?).
Laptop under the monitor is my work Chromebook Pixel 2, with left USB-C going to the monitor (via a DisplayPort adapter) and right USB-C going to the charger.
Laptop to the left is my home Chromebook Flip, with micro-HDMI (soon to be a proper HDMI 2.0 cable) and USB 3 going to the monitor, headphone out going to the Grado SR-80is in front, and the charger.

New Year's resolution: Be myself.
 
Hi, friends and family. I have a short but important announcement to make:

I'm transgender — I'm a different gender than what everyone assumed when I was born. I'm beginning to transition publicly, and would like people to start calling me Julia (or Julie, for short) and using female (she/her/hers) pronouns for me.

If you're confused at what this means, a few organizations have resources that might help explain:

* HRC's Transgender FAQ: http://www.hrc.org/resources/transgender-faq
* GLAAD's Transgender FAQ: http://www.glaad.org/transgender/transfaq
* PFLAG's "Our Trans Loved Ones" Q&A: http://community.pflag.org/document.doc?id=921.

If you have specific questions about my transition, they may be answered here: https://goo.gl/5gXbRG If that doesn't answer them, please feel free to contact me privately.

Would've been nice if you moved it over to email/notifications before breaking SMS codes for me for several weeks or months, Facebook.

Maybe they moved it because SMS was broken and they couldn't figure out how to fix it?

If I ran the world, upcharges for sweet potato fries would be illegal.

Or, frankly, you could stick with the cheaper, superior potato fries.

This is super neat. You get to be the pathological scheduler and break badly-multithreaded code.

(sully points out that this doesn't address memory ordering issues at all.)

So apparently Amazon has the Chromebook Flip (the 4 GB one, which you want) used for $135 or so.

I have one and it's fantastic. I could carry around a Bluetooth keyboard for my phone, or a tablet, but this is only slightly bigger, fits in my purse, and is a slightly sluggish but remarkably functional Chromebook with a slightly small but remarkably comfortable keyboard.

+Julia Tuttle Likewise, I first got a C720, which I still use a lot at home, and treated myself to a Flip a few months ago, for taking out and about. Love it. The C720 is a little faster in booting and I had issues (now cleared up) with the Flip freezing now and then but I really do love my Flip :)

Edit to add: Googlers, there will be an internal announcement once I've written it and given my manager and grandmanager a heads-up. Feel free to gossip amongst yourselves; it's been kind of an open secret for a while.

Update: Googlers, the internal announcement has launched. If you didn't see it, check my corp G+ profile or the misc-cam group.

Someone should sell giant fuck-off headphone shells to put over your auditorially-effective but socially-invisible in-ear headphones.
