Pie day at Google! Clearly it should have been in March, but we're not complaining.

I'm enjoying Google Music, but I'll enjoy it a lot more when they fix some of the little nits and annoyances.

Is it just me, or is One Bus Away substantially less accurate lately? Several times in the past week or two, the bus has either been substantially earlier or substantially layer than OBA suggested. I used to be able to trust it to be accurate 95% of the time, but I'm starting to feel like maybe I should just follow the posted schedules.

Or maybe the buses just suck?

The whole fleet is getting individual headwear, a painted top hat looking thing that houses a GPS unit, I think.
New coaches are delivered with GPS , with coach numbers (RapidRide 6000s; OrionVIIs 7000s; DE60LFRs 6866-6900s).

(As usual) South Base got it first (most 100 series routes), then East Base is getting some (most 200 series routes operated with articulated coaches). Reyerson Base is getting some from South Base (some city routes). The installation team moves from base to base.

Gotta check out the local ice cream!

Elevated is good, solid ice cream. Their fruit flavors were a little lacking -- the lemon in particular was a disappointment -- but the other flavors were tasty. It doesn't compare to the very best ice cream in Seattle, but it's worth a visit if you're in Port Townsend.

I'm not so sure the vast majority do want a soapbox. Hardly any of the people I'm friends with on Facebook (some of them quite prolific users) have Twitter accounts or blogs. Many are quite baffled by Twitter and the idea that you'd share stuff with strangers. They just want to share stuff with friends simply and easily.

I suspect tagging will come if there's demand for it. But the risk for Google might be that this here thing comes to stand for Geek+, not Google+.

This is easily the best webcomic I've found in a long time. It's in the vein of mspaintadventures (most notably Problem Sleuth and Homestuck), in that the format is a text-based-adventure-style command/image/text trio. In fact, the comic started in the mspaintadventures forums.

It shakes up the formula by actually using commands from forumites verbatim, as opposed to the heavily-edited and -curated commands used by mspaintadventures. This actually bothers me a little; the posts aren't edited for grammar or spelling, let alone stylistic coherence. However, the author ends up making great use of this format, which definitely makes the format oddity worthwhile.

The archive isn't even that long; easily readable in a few hours of dedicated reading or a few days of browsing.

I remember when the current owners first bought the store on this corner. It used to be sleazy, but when they took over it became a beloved neighborhood café. They know everyone around and they're an important part of the local culture.

The ramen was fine but uninspiring. The spicy ramen barely registered; the garlic tonkatsu was nice and garlicky but lacked zing.

A very solid ice cream store. They specialize in their cream, with most flavors being otherwise understated or based on mixed-in ingredients.

I'm not usually a big fan of fusion cuisine, and French/Japanese is a particularly odd pairing. But I was quickly sold by the quality of the food. I particularly recommend the bacon-wrapped mochi, which makes great use of disparate textures, and the chocolate-raspberry dessert cocktail.

We'd heard wonderful things about this place, but there food we got, although good, did nothing to blow us away. Not worth the long line and cramped quarters.

Third Rail has a great collection of cocktails on the menu, and if none of those satisfy you the knowledgeable bartenders will be able to create something delicious on the fly. Their jerky selection has convinced me that jerky is the most perfect of all bar snacks.
