Some LaTeX composition can be done faster using a spreadsheet application.

How Overleaf got me into LaTeX - a chat with Finance Professor Brian M Lucey: https://www.overleaf.com/blog/299
I’m pretty much a convert to Overleaf and delighted to be using it. After years of avoiding LaTeX this has done the job for me.

Have you ever heard the expression: "it is cold enough to freeze the nuts off a bridge" ?? Well here it is:
http://www.tbnewswatch.com/News/379810/Newly_constructed_Nipigon_Bridge_splits_in_cold_
NIPIGON -- The newly-constructed Nipigon River Bridge has split in the cold, cutting the only transportation link between Eastern and Western Canada. The Ontario Provincial Police closed Highway 11-17 indefinitely at the bridge at 3:05 p.m. Sunday when bolts holding the girder to the bearing on an expansion joint broke on the bridge's north side. The split caused the eastern half of the bridge to rise about two feet. Engineers were o...

Years ago, a computer had a bunch of cords attached to it. And because of all of this, we had to have a desk for our computers:
a cord for the mouse
a cord for the keyboard
a cord for the printer
a cord for the monitor
Unless you have a laptop the cord to the monitor is still required. Wireless technology has eliminated the wires, the printer can be anywhere in the house and at times I ask myself "I am still doing things this way because???

I just discovered HostMath. Very impressive, not that I have any need for it, I but HostMath http://www.hostmath.com/Default.aspx makes writing math equations in LaTeX much easier.
Input LaTeX, Tex, AMSmath or ASCIIMath notation (Click icon on the toolbar to switch to ASCIIMath mode) to make formula instantly. Math; GK&Fun; Logic; Arrow; Symbol; Format. Show External URL. Show Embeded Code. Show MathML Code. \[{}\]. `{}`. Copy and paste the code above to your webpage!

Is there a glut on the market for USB drives and media cards?

In the past month I have been in three stores where I have noticed that the price of USB flash drives has taken a nose dive. In one store I purchased two 32 GIG drives for under $16.00 each. It looks like sub 50 cents a gigabyte is here.
Staples has a pack of three 8 GIG flash drives for $14.00.
Then there was that 128 GIG flash drive on Amazon for some ridiculous low price a few weeks ago. +Ken Starks do you recall the price?
It looks like the smallest drive made these days is an 8 gig and we will pay between $6 - $9. That looks like the price to make any drive, because many 16 gig drives do not cost much more than that, selling at the $10 price point. Jump up to 32 GIGs and we are at the $16 point or less.

Is there a glut? Has cloud storage taken over???
What do you think?

Has the cost actually dropped because it doesn't cost much to make these? Competition drives consumer prices, sometimes.
