? Life: 30

Writing this title out makes everything feel much more real. I think it’s appropriate that this post is a full month late from my birthday on August 26th. I really can’t believe that it’s been 4 weeks since my birthday but that’s just a very real example of what my 30th year on Earth has...

? Linked: “News Publishers’ Facebook Problem”

? Technology: Automatic Pro (aka V3) Unboxing and Install

Eventually, I’ll get around to a complete review of the new Automatic. Initial negative of this is that it occasionally doesn’t send date up to the cloud as fast as the old unit because the dongle doesn’t have cell-service at my house. It still will send data eventually but it’s mostly because I live in...

Linked: “Green Tea IT’s IT”

A large scoop of green tea ice cream, sandwiched between two old-fashioned oatmeal cookies, and dipped in dark chocolate. One of the things I miss about SF was that you could go to any corner store and get one of these. Looks like you can order them online now but at $22 a box before... ?

Linked: “Looking ahead for WhatsApp”

But by coordinating more with Facebook, we’ll be able to do things like track basic metrics about how often people use our services and better fight spam on WhatsApp. And by connecting your phone number with Facebook’s systems, Facebook can offer better friend suggestions and show you more relevant ads if you have an account... ?

? Motorrad: BestRest Peg Packer (2-Gallon) Auxilury Fuel Tank

I’ve ran out of gas 3 times on my motorcycle. Once was my mistake and the other two times were completely the fault of the fuel-sensor. I now use a trip-counter on the on-board computer but even then, the range can fluctuate by 75 miles which would be unacceptable on most bikes. I’ve been bone...

Linked: “Heavy Metal and Natural Language Processing – Part 1”

via Degenerate State: As you can see, Five Finger Death Punch have the highest number of swear words in their lyrics, and Pig Destroyer have the most complex wordplay.

Popping Under the Clickadu Premium Ad Network

Advertising on the Internet is likely almost as old as the Internet itself. Over the years, ads have taken on a variety of different forms, from flashing banners exclaiming that you’ve won an iPod to more subtle affiliate links buried into extensive product reviews.
