You could have stopped it after the first 0:17 and called it good. Nice work Alex!

Anyone out there using SublimeText have issues with indentation when writing script based components? Everything is fine when I write tag based components and code within cfscript tags however, when I write a script based component, all of the brackets don't line up correctly. I have to add a tab to each of the end brackets (and braces).

When a sliding menu covers other menu items (or items that look like potential menu items) it really bothers users #googleplus

I am sorry Pandora... I should have NEVER doubted you. Can you forgive me? Google All Access music has a nice interface and I like that it integrates well with my music library but unfortunately I don't think its for me.

Originally, I was excited to try because I like the ability to play specific albums (mine and others) or songs, ala Spotify and Rdio. However, I can't justify the $7.99 a month charge for these reasons:

1) There is not enough variety in the music when listening in "Radio" mode. Maybe this will change in the future, but for now its a lot of songs by the same artists, sometimes in a span of a few songs.
2) Over the last few days the service has been "spotty". Songs would pause randomly, sometimes multiple times in a single song, and I would have to skip the song all together.
3) There is no native iOS app for this service. I love listening to Pandora while I drive and when I workout or ride. (I am sure there will be but it seems like they don't have any priority on this).

I don't like Spotify that much. I tried it for a while but found their "artists like this" feature to be weak. I listen to music all day. The only effort I make is to skip songs and change the station (and pause occasionally for conversations). Spotify is too much work. Building playlists is nice but its too difficult. I also like to discover new music. So in Pandora if a group comes on that I like, and I have never heard of them before, I make a station. It helps me expand my knowledge of music. If you enjoy listening to an entire album at once and want access to more music then Spotify and Rdio (and Google All Access for that matter) are good choices. I know both Spotify and Rdio have iOS apps.

I am definitely one of the 90% who use multiple devices. I might search on my phone and finish the transaction on my laptop. I hate filling out forms on my phone.
