Do you have a favorite programming font e.g. Source Code Pro, Inconsolata-g, Consolas? (ps, pretty sure asked before, but not finding)

Whatever Eterm's default font is.

And ugh, I guess I need to figure out what the heck happened to the fonts on this browser that G+ looks horrible.

So, geeky friends, I've got a long not done project of setting up a file server/nas type setup, which might also double as a print server and a lightweight media box.

Any recommendations or pointers?

I've also been thinking about something like a tonido plug or a pogoplug.  Of course, I'm also tempted to get  a small case and board and stick a bunch of drives in there and just put a linux distro on it.

On variation 3 of "please don't send an email unless you want to re-open this ticket". Next response = bad workaround to "disappear" ticket

Yet another project for me to try to tackle one of these days: Seeing if I can set up my phone to use the Source Code Pro font somehow. Any folks have pointers on creating a "font app" for an Android device and packing ttf scripts into it?

Ah, bibliographic data. Nothing like seeing some poor soul trying to do a date range comparison on a free-form entry long nvarchar field that serves as a "Year". A field that contains entries like '91, 007, Jan. 2013, 01 01 1913, and everyone's favorite, "journal".

Gah! Have a chromecast and I really like it when it's working with the Youtube app, but every once in a while it just seems impossible to trigger the tv queue to come up short of just playing a video.  Anyone else with a chromecast that knows a way to always go to the tv queue?  

I need to experiment with moving playlists to tv queue as well.

Of course, it would be nice if the Youtube app dealt with channels better. Seems harder than should be to go to a channel and order from newest to oldest (and dare I say it, just show me stuff I haven't watched already?)

Yeah, especially in the app. It's like "Seen that, seen that, seen that, yup. Oh, hey, the new thing is buried here because not enough people watched it yet."  But since I'm already on the channel it most likely has low views because it's the new episode of something.

I'm supporting a friend for #ExtraLife - http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.participant&participantID=55622. It's a good cause, see if you have anyone you want to support. (Or support Jesse ;) ).

So, fellow programmer geeks, any recommendations for books on Android programming? (I still find I learn best or at least start getting up to speed by reading books).
