Google's WiFi(not gps) triangulation puts me a block away from where I actually am. Is there some place to report this inconsistency to be corrected?

Yeah it's not accurate and as far as I know there is nothing you can do about it, Google are notorious for not having any customer service, at least you will be safe from stalkers using your location ;)

Ansible Releases  - 
 
This alpha release is the culmination of many months of work to not only refactor the code base to increase stability, but to add some amazing new features:

* Blocks, which allow playbooks to do some basic try/except/finally style error handling
  http://docs.ansible.com/ansible/playbooks_blocks.html
* Execution strategy plugins, which allow tasks to run in ways that differ from classic Ansible.
  https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/playbooks_strategies.html
* Dynamic include statements, which bring back the ability to use include + with_* loops. In
  1.9.x   and before, includes function simply as a pre-processor macro, in which tasks are
  expanded before any task execution starts. Now, in 2.0 and beyond, includes are executed 
  as any other task is and expanded only at the point it is executed.
* A multitude of bug fixes - well over 200 issues were closed in just the main Ansible repository
  as part of the refactoring and cleanup.
* Over 140 new modules, including the new style Openstack modules, new VMware and 
  Cloudstack modules, and many more!

The full list of changes can be found here:

https://github.com/ansible/ansible/blob/devel/CHANGELOG.md

What will break?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
As we have noted in the past, we strove to maintain 100% backwards compatibility for playbooks, and where appropriate we have decided to deprecate some language features. These will continue to work, however you may notice an increase in deprecation messages.

The main issue some users may run into is the internal APIs for some plugins have changed (especially for Lookups and Action plugins), for which we will be writing a migration guide before the final 2.0 release.

Thanks for posting this! The Try/except/finally functionality is a huge improvement!

If a security of a system is based simply on a fact that adversary doesn't know how it works, it's not a security system.
#SecurityThroughObscurity
In the picture below, published by Washington Post, are all the master keys to open all "tsa-approved" luggage locks. Now anybody can simply duplicate them.
And if you'll decide to use a non-tsa-approved lock, it will be ripped off your luggage.
Welcome to #TSASecurityTheater.
“Does the @washingtonpost & brilliant TSA know that they just compromised their locking system by putting this out”

You could always put some tamper-resistant tape on the outside of a lock. Not that hard. You know if anyone opened it. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0051JNB6A

The TSA is evil, but the bigger thing you have to worry about is your bag being stolen; most criminals would rather run off with a bag than mess with a padlock.

This font looks nice. Looks like a viable competitor to Adobe's https://github.com/adobe-fonts/source-code-pro font.
Sweet spot is 8px-12px, but you can tell the difference between I and 1 at 6px.

The downside, at least temporarily, is it isn't yet available in Google Fonts, unlike a number of other open-source monospace fonts: https://www.google.com/fonts#UsePlace:use/Collection:Source+Code+Pro

The browser continues its evolution into becoming a great environment for writing servers. +Ilya Grigorik shows how to eliminate HTTP roundtrips with a new capability called Preconnect, which lets you tell a browser about connections you would like to set up ahead of time to eliminate "the costly DNS, TCP, and TLS roundtrips from the critical path of the actual request."

This is a bad idea. My range has a cafe, but a few espresso shots prior to shooting won't affect my judgement. But alcohol + guns don't mix. I don't have a beer after the range until all the guns are cleaned an in the safe. I don't want to chance a negligent discharge due to being a little too "relaxed".

Lunch special is a great deal. For $9 you get a choice of appetizer, the main dish and drink(thai ice tea/coffee, other beverage). The staff was very friendly and food tasted great. Thai ice tea was a little watered-down.

The "Original 5 napkin burger" is of pretty decent size and interesting taste. However, at almost $15 it's not worth it.

This place sucks. 2 slices and a small cup of soda is $8.xx Pepperoni pizza tasted horrible. I think their napkins would taste better than this pizza. The drink was simply flat. Stay away. There are plenty of other better places around here. 1 out of 10.
