So, Frontier is coming to my home to upgrade my network speed.  They have told me that they will come between the hours of 8am to 5pm.  *face palm*  So, tomorrow I am a virtual prisoner in my own home.

Wow, did not know that was a thing.  I suppose to the Chinese that eat dogs; dogs are no different than chicken or anything else we consume.  The west of course have had a relationship with dogs as companions for a very long time.  (I guess cats as well, wow)  As the world becomes smaller, the morals one hemisphere are encroaching on others.

While the outrage is great, and we should do it, but let's also look into all dogs and cats here in shelters that are being euthanized every week/day.  Oregon is in the forefront of being one of the few states that have 100% adoption rate.  No pet is euthanized if there is a remote chance of them being adopted.

No point to this post, other than commenting on the later twitter rage.
 
Firestorm: As people took to social media, streets to stop the Yulin dog meat festival involving killing of dogs for food (Sunday per Chinese lunar calendar.) This year has scored unprecedented outrage as the social media recorded millions of users demanding a stop to dog killing. On Twitter, 1,000s of tweets hashtag "#StopYuLin2015, petitions etc. The tag: #Yulindogmeatfestival  used over 4M posts - the highest-trending hashtag so far (Credit/Thanks: Washington Post, China Business News, Global Times.)
10,000 dogs and cats are planned for dinner at a Chinese festival and there are some disturbing images.

Oh the cute doggies leave them alone. All the trillions of more intelligent pigs every year doesn't count. Just kill and tortured them. So many hypocrites walking around...

This is such an awesome article.  The primary story is that packs are successful when they are not fighting with each other but work in cooperation.  The story of the superwolf is especially awesome and would appeal to people regardless.  Tells you something about the wolf.
The alpha male stereotype of the wolf is wrong. He’s all about family.

Just want to say that +Shakira​ is awesome and highly recommended. Lately I have been take ng stock and finding great artists. While it is tempting to dismiss anything on the radio as crap. There is definitely are some real great talent. Shakira and Lady Gaga are two of them.

This is coming from a guy who loves progressive rock.;)

I just got a new X1 Carbon Gen 3 with HiDPI screen.  Our HiDPI still needs some work.  At first, I wanted the more screen space, but the everything was so small that I just found it really difficult to read.  But not every app behaves properly in HiDPI.  Worse if you are moving from laptop to external monitor.

This is a great blog post by +Lennart Poettering .  In fact, I put in a talk at  +The Linux Foundation Linuxcon Europe that this blog references.  However, my talk talks about the viability of a the Desktop as a business market.  What is missing is that we have no analytics about the strength of the market as it pertains to the desktop.  The 1-4% desktop share that we purport to have doesn't really have enough data.

If you are running GNOME on an enterprise setup, using RHEL or SLED, the +GNOME has no way of knowing who uses their software.  Application writers have no personal relationship with the desktop mraket because it is completely defused through the distribution network.  Quality issues also arise.  One distro can have a bug that is no repeatable in another.  IfI have a problem, do I blame the distro or upstream?

Centralizing application distribution, with sandbox'ed app, provides desktops like +GNOME and application writer with the kind of analytics that will help improve software quality and reliability on a wide range of platforms.  If an app fails we know exactly who to blame.

In many ways, Lennart's talk and mine (if accepted!) would be complimentary.  Of course this might mean that Lennart either follows me or I follow him, and boy I know how that ended up, last  time that happened! :-)

I think it would be awesome to have a conference where we place these kind of things as the main focus.  It seems that a lot of conferences these days center around kernel development.

The high resolution screen on my laptop still needs adjustment.  I ended up wearing my glasses because of the eye strain.  (I'll figure out the magical settings later)  While wearing this at work, you'd think I decided to wear a gorilla mask.  Apparently, nobody can recognize me and I seem to look like someone else.  At least, it seems I look like a manager or a professor.  Hah, I find that very funny. :-)

Introduction
I'd like to say I was born in a log cabin, but clearly that would be wrong.  Instead I will say that I'm this guy who came across the pond at 4 years old.  Landed on these united states of america and been here ever since.  I'd like to believe that I'm a perfect mix of eastern and western.  Indian culture merging with western culture and I mean a lot of different kinds of western cultures. :-)

I'm active in American politics.  I'm still looking for my towel.
