I just replaced the screen on my mom's iPhone. The LCD transplant went without a hitch, and her phone is up and working again as good as new.
In addition, it sports a nifty new Otter Box Defender case to make sure her garage floor doesn't claim any more Gorilla Glass as victims.

If you have broken electronics, phones, game consoles, PCs, laptops, etc, and want to find out if you could get it fixed cheaper than replacing the whole thing, give me a shout!

I'm looking for a goat or two, specifically a young Boer buck or wether. If you know of anyone looking to sell a goat or two, let me know.

Bill Watterson, creator of Calvin and Hobbes, collaborates with Stephan Pastis's Pearls Before Swine comic strip. 
Yes, you heard that correctly: NEW WORK FROM BILL WATTERSON!
Bill Watterson is the Bigfoot of cartooning. He is legendary. He is reclusive. And like Bigfoot, there is really only one photo of him in existence.  Few in the cartooning world have ever spoken to...

This is the danger of popular sentiment pressuring scientific investigation: "Do something NOW!"
 
Scientists Admit Polar Bear Numbers Were Made Up To ‘Satisfy Public Demand' http://ow.ly/2Hj6rX
This may come as a shocker to some, but scientists are not always right -- especially when under intense public pressure for answers. Researchers with the IUCN Polar Bear Specialist Group (PBSG) re

So Neil Gaiman is making a game, called Wayward Manor. Sounds interesting! Check it out.

OMG!!! I wish you had posted to your website that Ho! was available for Android! I saw that it was out for iOS, but had been wishing I could play it on our Android tablets.
I've been a big fan of Ho! since the Windows 95 version 4.x, and have considered setting up a bunch of Macs so I can play v5.
This is awesome, and I'm very excited. If you need me, I'll be off playing Ho! on Android tablet.

Like any new technology, it will be used for sex, and crime. Be wary, be skeptical, in your online interactions folks. It's gonna get weird(er) out there.
A programme that convinced humans that it was a 13-year-old boy has become the first computer ever to pass the Turing Test. The test — which requires that computers are indistinguishable from humans — is considered a landmark in the development of artificial intelligence, but academics have warned that the technology could be used for cybercrime.

This article is full of insight. One of the gems that stood out for me is this one:

"Liberal arguments against guns tend to presume the worst: that a yearning for gun ownership must in some way be rooted in the desire to hurt. But gun culture at its best is rooted in a desire to protect, and especially to protect the people we love."
Gun culture at its best is rooted in a desire to protect, and especially to protect the people we love.

"What do you think science is? There's nothing magical about science. It is simply a systematic way for carefully and thoroughly observing nature and using consistent logic to evaluate the results. Which part of that exactly do you disagree with? Do you disagree with being thorough? Using careful observation? Being systematic? Or using consistent logic?" -- Dr. Steven Novella
 
Dr Novella is a true champion for the cause!

Amazing Lebanese food and desserts. I want to go back at lunch for the buffet to try everything!

It had been nearly a year since we've been to Indigo, but we were greeted personally by the owner, who asked about the other members of the family not present. He greeted every other guest who arrived during our meal with the same friendliness and genuine warmth. The atmosphere is quiet and casual, as is the service.The food is buffet style (I've only ever been during lunchtime), with choices of various curry type dishes, vegetables, chicken and lamb, with salads, naan (bread) and desserts. The curry and massala are spicy without being overly hot. If you like very hot food, try the Indian chili peppers on the salad bar ;)We highly recommend the Taj Mahal beer as an excellent accompaniment to the meal, but be warned; it's a large bottle, so share.If I still worked in Shreveport, I would eat here far more often, but it is definitely worth making a trip over for lunch or dinner.Also, Indigo has just opened a new restaurant in Lewisville, TX, just north of the Dallas area. I highly recommend my friends in DFW try it out and report back.

I went to this man with what I thought was a difficult problem, and he saved me from having to buy an entirely new pair of prescription mirrored sunglasses. This man knows his business, and is a pleasure to watch. His workspace is tightly packed with all the bits and bobs he needs to do his work. It's a joy to see craftsmanship in a disposable-commodity world, and he's a craftsman.

You should eat here. If travelling on I-20, this place IS worth diverting off the highway and making your way down to the south side of the loop for lunch. You won't be disappointed. This place is very very good. They make Gyro sandwiches (pita with roasted meat) that are bigger than a baby's head. The fries and pita chips were overcooked for my taste and/or the oil is too old, but they were having trouble with their fryer the last time I was there, so I'll give 'em some slack. I'd eat lunch here three times a week, if it wasn't on the other side of Tyler from where I work. The decor is Spartan (hah, see what I did there?) but you get to graffiti the walls with markers. It's totally got a College-town hangout feel to it. I miss eating authentic Greek food (I lived in Greece as a kid) and this place helps satisfy my craving for gyro and falafel. Note of warning: The "Ghost Sauce" is deadly hot. My wife loves spicy foods, the hotter the better, uses Sriracha like ketchup. But the Ghost Sauce took the skin off her tongue. Be careful! ~Rick

Don't expect white tablecloths and snooty waiters. Don't ask how many Michelin stars they've been awarded.... it's just not that kind of place. This restaurant is attached to a "country store" gas station, and at lunchtime the food is fast and hot. And delicious. The service is excellent, and it doesn't hurt that the staff are gorgeous and friendly. If you're hungry for lunch, get there before 2 pm, as they shut down after the lunch rush. Tell Katrina that "Baby" sent you ;)

It seems that Lashley Tractor Sales has hired some Search-Engine Optimization gunslingers, and shows up high in the Google search results. But beware! They want to charge a _minimum_ of $9.99 shipping, even for a booklet. They claim their only shipping method is FedEx. I asked for a more reasonable shipment via USPS, and they refused. Avoid these people, and give your local dealers some business instead.
