quote of the day
SCOTUS Justice Antonin Scalia: "it seems to me Congress either had the power to do this under the Copyright Clause or it didn't," he said. "I don't think that powers that Congress does not have under the Constitution can be acquired by simply obtaining the agreement of the Senate, the President, and Zimbabwe."

It's that time of year again, and I'm off gallivanting and visiting my favorite testing community at CAST. This year it is in New York at NYU and while the actual conference hasn't started yet, hanging around with this many o...

Hey google! You're pissing me off today, and you are missing out on an opportunity! I use google apps to have a domain name and email for my family, recently I gave my 10 year old daughter an email account so that I could have a measure of control over her email. She decided that g+ would be cool and tried to sign up, and DIDN'T LIE and gave her real age. Her account is now locked. Fine, it was against the Terms for her to have an account, I can understand suspending the account. However, as a super user I should be able to export her emails and contacts so she can move to another service. AND I should be able to delete her account before the 30 days are up. For the next 30 days anyone that emails her, will not know that the account basically doesn't exist.

Food is excellent. Dont let the note of spice in the menu ward you off. The food is excellent, and well worth it.
