First time in my life that any lager has made me say, 'wow, that's good!' I'm more of an ale guy, but this beer balances that dark and dirty lager flavor with a hop blend that fits it perfectly. Wow.

Thank you, Windows 10, for an update that changed my two boot options "With Hyper-V" and "Without Hyper-V" into "Windows 10 (volume 4) and "Windows 10 (volume 4)." Because of course the only way anyone uses a boot menu is to pick between completely different OSes on completely different volumes.

After five years in Android Developer Relations, I've decided to take the plunge and go back to full-time engineering. I'll be starting on the Android Media engineering team on January 1. I'll be working on the Android audio engine alongside my longtime collaborator +Glenn Kasten. Can't wait!

+Ian Ni-Lewis Sure, Jack won't change anything w.r.t latency. It would just mean a much nicer API ;-) I would very much prefer Jack API itself isntead of something similar as it would make porting exisisting code much easier.
This being said: Great that you would like to see it (or something similar), too!

Got an upgrade on my return from London, w00t!!

I have been in a lot of airline lounges in my time, but this is my first time in the Virgin clubhouse. Trust me when I say it is beyond pimped. I am sitting in an Eames chair, sipping a Hendricks, which was one of five good gins on hand. Most lounges you're lucky to get one gin, and doubly lucky if it's not Gilbey's. :-)

For our presentation at the JUCE summit in London this week I had to come up with an image to represent "high resolution audio" on Android. This is what I came up with. I'm very fond of it already. :-)

+Felix Homann I can't take credit for the actual presentation--that was all +Don Turner. Don, any word on where the slides & recordings live now?

Got up at 4am to write code all day. Got home at 6pm and had one of these waiting for me. Perfect.

Right now I am listening to 96KHz digital audio piped from my MacBook over ethernet via AVB to a MOTU 8M DAC. I have waited so long to be able to push reliable low latency audio over cheap CAT6 instead of ridiculously expensive analog or ADAT cables. Now if I just had an AVB-capable switch so I didn't have to wire the two machines directly to each other.

It depends on how high you need. Obviously the upper limit is 48KHz. My mic and speakers probably roll off in the upper 20's, but it's hard to say for sure. I have a calibrated mic that I've been meaning to test all this with, but you know how it is, I've got projects backed up far enough to last me years. :-P

Amanda designed her first 3D printed creation! It was her concept and design. I helped her draft it using OnShape. I'm so proud of her!

Amanda, you are really special! Thank you for sharing this creation with us. I hope you have a very happy birthday!

Check out what Whole Foods had on sale Wednesday. This year's green bean casserole was classy.

Sometimes I get a little frustrated and start to think that maybe git isn't worth it. Then I find something like git bundle -- a perfect, pragmatic, and robust solution to a problem that I didn't know anyone else had.
Git's Little Bundle of Joy by. The scenario is thus: you need to sneakernet a git push . Maybe your network is down and you want to send changes to your co-workers. Perhaps you're working somewhere onsite and don't have access to the local network for security reasons.

+Adam Powell​ more or less, yeah. I used email, but Drive sounds like an even better option.

Check it out, I just got added to the speaker list for the JUCE summit in London on November. JUCE is like the middleware I always wanted to write but never found the time. Honestly, I'm really jealous of the author. Not only did he find the time to write some slick libraries, but he also has great hair (pictured below). Damn, I wish I could grow hair like that.

Anyway, I'll be there with some key members of the Android Audio team to show off what JUCE + Android Pro Audio can do. If for some reason me being there is the one factor that finally tips the scales for you in favor of attending, then (a) thanks, I guess? and (b) early bird registration closes today!

Achievement unlocked: my four-year-old daughter can now sing along with a punk rock song. Granted, it's not exactly a typical punk song, but still.

These guys have never tried to upsell me or overcharge me. If they can fix a tire for a few bucks, they'll do it--unlike the dealership who would try to sell me a few grand worth of brand new tires. They've earned my trust.
