Doing the Chromebook "thing"
Typing this from an Acer Chromebook 15 - core i5 model with 4 gigs of RAM and decent (though not particularly generous) SSD. Boots in approximately 7 seconds, as advertised. Ties into my google accounts and so all my "stuff", at least the online portions, i...

Refreshing Yoga with Ubuntu 15.10
Note - The following is a bit long because I think it's useful to see how I got to where I am from where I started. You have been warned... :-) So this started a couple weeks ago when I was trying to figure out if for my yearly technology refresh I wanted a...

Buying or Selling a Connected Home - Some Issues to Consider
Just finished setting up a Nest home with Nest Protect and the like. First issue that came up was how to let the SO be able to set the thermostat, check the cameras, etc. While the dropcam app used to allow you to SHARE an account, there is no such capabili...

Decent food, great beer, so-so service. Last three times there it has been apparent they are understaffed.

Large room and friendly staff. Would have preferred if room had been a bit smaller and some soundproofing installed. Could hear the folks in the pool on the floor below until the pool closed. Noise from the hallway on and off most of the night. Breakfast is free, but barely worth it. Hotel is set back from frontage road, but still a 15 minute wait or longer to get a break long enough to get out. No alternate exit.

Stayed in one of the deluxe cabins. Plenty of space, but not well laid out. Plenty of outlets, but most of them in places you can't use. Offers limited Internet, but cabins are too far from office to connect. Friendly staff, so hopefully many of these can be fixed.

Great location and views, good service, and food and drinks are only mildly overpriced.
