Ok, here is something I don't understand about the Nissan Leaf: setting the time. There are two clocks and a 3g antenna. The two clocks don't communicate, much less pull the Tims from 3g. Not to mention, the ui for setting both clocks is terrible. Yet more evidence that the leaf is more slapping together existing systems and parts, rather than designing it right the first time. Its like the enterprise software I deal with, except in a brand new car.

I often critique the "smart" technologies of our age. Today's is asking a digital assistant "how many words are in eenie meenie miny mo?"

I have tried google now and siri, and neither gave me a suitable answer. What if I want to calculate where the song would end for a given number of people? I would need to know the word count first. First world problems.

When using super glue, why is it impossible to not get it on your hands?

Just repaired the belt pouch for my phone. I've had it for 3 years - best one ever!

I'm having trouble installing ruby-debug-base19x gem on Ubuntu 14.04 using latest ruby 1.9.3 with rvm. I'm trying to debug an app in rubymine. Anyone had anything similar? I'm typing this from my phone, so I don't have the error output. I'll post that as a comment soon. Thanks

Use the 'debugger' gem instead

I love how the windows explorer progress bar (the one integrated into your nav bar) has no bearing on what your are doing.  Instead, for tasks that had no determinable finish time, microsoft made it a progress bar that just exponentially slows down - never reaching the end... almost as if to mock the user.

So, is it just me or has google+ gotten really lame all of a sudden. I use the "what's hot" feed to scour for tech news. Lately its been a little lame. It has reduced the number of pages it will show me from about 15 to 2. Not only that, but the feed seems highly focused on Apple. Granted, I don't miss the "don't diss anime or I'll kill you" and "gurl, love yourself" memes (dare I even mention one direction).

So, anyone got any ideas of another social network where I can get up to date tech news? And just FYI, I'm not getting back on Facebook.

Just finished a long 2 days worth of BBQ. I cooked 5 pork butts and 1 chicken - which has been my best chicken to date :)

I Leased a car, and I was told I would get a $100 referral bonus for referring a friend - and they bought/leased a car. I referred a friend who leased two cars. I was told by the salesman that I would only get $150. After asking him how exactly 100x2 = 150, he said he forgot to process the bonus on the first one, and $150 was the best he could do. I told him that it was not my problem that he made a mistake. Later he called me to tell me that they will give me the full $200, but that some of it came out of his paycheck. Very professional. Anyways, the real problem is that it's been well over a month and I haven't seen any bonus money! I really wonder about what other imperceptible ways I might have been screwed over.

Service was terrible and food wasn't all that great. I had to flag the waitress to come over and take our order. I ordered Flautas (beef deep fried in a tortilla), and they were burnt with hardly any meat in them. When we gave her our card to pay, she charged us for another booth's meal. Not to mention, my wife's food gave her intestinal problems. We come and visit this place every time we come to Columbia, but I don't think we will go back. About their only redeeming quality is their Horchata's

We did takeout, so I can't really say anything about the service. The food was terrible. I ordered a sirloin and I got the worst made sirloin I've ever had. The outsides were charred with spices caked on it (burnt, of course). Other than the sirloin, their food has much room for improvement to beg the price that they ask.
