Why does an Ethernet jack represent my primary inbox in gmail? I have no doubt this is suppose to represent something other than a slightly stylized rj45 jack, but I can't help but see it as one. Clearly I have spent to much time dealing with switches and patch panels.

I just saw the version of this icon on a desktop chrome session. That one has a touch of perspective which makes the mail tray much more obvious and takes the ethernet jack out as an option. But the android icon is still an rj45 for me.

First time stopping at this location, didn't have time to do it justice.  Going to have to go back when I have some time and take a bunch of pictures, perhaps a photosphere. I'd like to get it on a day clear enough to make out the Golden Gate in the distance.  The bridge you can see is the Bay Bridge.

Google+ Questions - Mobile  - 
 
I am uploading photos from my KK phone to a G+ album.  The order of the pictures is not preserved.  They are museam shots and now the descriptions placards are in no way associated with the images to which they refer.  Is there a way to preserve the order that the shots were taken in (picture name is the datestamp after all)? Or, is there a way after the fact to sort by name?
Reorganizing a few hundred pics is a pain.

Thank you, I thought I had but it seems ChromeVox does not voice the entire comment by default.  My mistake.

I had to do a chorder repair this weekend. This is the second time this year I have had to open up the chorder. This time was a direct result of not doing it right the last time.

Earlier this year I ended up breaking the inner thumb key switch when I accidentally stepped on the chorder. At that time I managed to replace the broken post but I must have pulled on a wire. Anyway, this time I had to remove two leather pieces (but not any of the waxed/hardened leather) so the wire could be soldered in place. +Brandyn White did the soldering. I dealt with the leather and the contact cement. It is all back together and working properly again.

Here are a few pictures. Yes, taken #throughglass, but then cropped.

Since I steped on it, does this count as a "failure" of the kind I have to count in MTBF stats? Even if so, I think I can live with a MTBF of 16years, 3 months.

Three cheers for the onion http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-30549150
The world's oldest cookery books - in cuneiform - prove that the Babylonians loved onions. So does everyone else, though you rarely hear it said.

If you have more than one cat, then only one window is acceptable at any given time.

Nice article about an amazing man. He taught us about Flexigons, Fibonacci, Fractals and so much more. Just this week occasion to reference his Jan. 1975 column on anamorphic art.
