Ready for commuting by bike. Thanks, +Tom Ligman, +Matthew DeVries and others for the pannier suggestion. The Ortlieb Backroller Classics are very well made and easy to put on the bike and take off.

The light is a Busch Müller Toplight LED Flat S permanent...was $35...nothing special and I had to mount it wrong...vertically instead of horizonally.

Don't trust anything that's computer based http://arstechnica.com/security/2014/07/severe-password-manager-attacks-steal-digital-keys-and-data-en-masse/?utm_content=buffer8a083&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer This shows that LastPass and other password managers still have a lot to do to improve the security of their products. Also highlights the importance of using two factor mechanisms like Google Authenticator or Yubikey where possible.
Adoption of poorly secured password managers opens a single point of failure.

Why does this say it's in Full HD but I can't play it in Full HD on PC or Amazon Fire TV?

+Tom Ligman Do you have a recommendation for a good rear bike rack for use with panniers? Must be disc brake and fender compatible. Don't need a recommendation for panniers, since I already know what you'd recommend there (Backrollers, I'm pretty sure). Thanks!

Went to Aloha Vac and Sew yesterday with my wife to see about classes and sewing cabinets. The salesperson there not only insulted our intelligence, but didn't listen at all to what our situation is and tried to sell us on expensive machines even though my wife is just getting into sewing and doesn't know how far she wants to go.Complete waste of time and we're never going back.Try treating your customers with respect, actually listening to their needs and not getting snooty because they bought a sewing machine from Costco. By the way, I should notify Brother that one of their dealers is bad mouthing the products they sell elsewhere.

The ramen is excellent here, but the sushi is generally just ok. Service is generally very poor unless you sit at the bar, at least it is for us. For some reason they always forget that we are there and it has happened enough times that my wife no longer will go with me. Take out service is a much better way to go.
