But geez, imagine if you lose the file. I'd want to set up a backup for something like that—apart from just the regularly scheduled system backup—in case some silly app decides to "clean" my desktop, or any of the myriad of other possibilities causes the file to disappear. »
Agreed on the alerts, but I get Waze alerts via Google Now since Google bought Waze, so don't much see the point of the app. Although please, everyone, do keep using Waze, since your input on that app is where Google gets its information... »
Tempus Sans ITC is right behind Papyrus on the Comic Sans train. It's only problem is that people often mistake it for Papyrus. »
I have seriously never even encountered a rotten egg. For me this is a mythical thing. They just get eaten too darn fast! And that's included fresh eggs from the chicken's my wife's aunt keeps—eggs that weren't pasteurized (or even refrigerated in some cases).
Folks, especially now that Melanie has given you all these… »
Unit conversation? You mean like this:
"An ounce walks up to a pound and says, 'O-Z weather outside is dreadful. It's raining cats and dogs!' »
Also, use salt. Seriously, I've known of people who think that salt is simply bad, and therefor exclude it from cooking. Sure, you can over-salt and ruin a dish, and you can get too much salt in your diet and end up with negative health effects, but excluding salt altogether just makes your food taste bland and comes… »
This isn't exactly related, but of a similar spirit:
Does anyone know of a good way to make a game that doesn't have adjustable resolution scale up to a higher resolution? I just grabbed the You Don't Know Jack collection on Humble Bundle and discovered that it runs 640x480 only. The Steam page says to just change your… »
Man I wish there was a Costco near me. They finally built one near Birmingham about ten years ago, but it's 10 miles south of the city, while I live 10 miles north of the city. The one store they built is only convenient to the people who live on the south side of town, which happens to be where the very richest… »
But won't that mean going through the TSA security checkpoint at the connecting airport, and risking a missed connection if you get held up (or, God forbid, pulled aside for random screening)?
Seems like a gamble to me, but then if you have a really long (like 12 hour) layover in a city you've never visited, I could… »
Where this to the airport and see if you can get through security.
"Sir, you're clearly wearing a secret earwig device to communicate with your terrorist accomplices." »
Pizza Hut is offering free personal pizzas to commemorate the 30th anniversary of their "Book-It" rewards program, which rewarded kids for reading books every month with a free pizza. The awesome twist here is that the free pizzas are going to what they call "Book-It Alumni." So, if you participated in the program as… »
5. After you restart and get frustrated that the app you wanted to hide is back on your home screen, sell your iPhone and get an Android phone. Marvel at how you can easily delete any app from your launcher, move icons to any location on screen (instead of having them anchored to the top-left), and even replace the… »
I love your profile picture. I realized halfway through that I was reading your comment in Cyril's voice. »
Amazon gets my vote. They don't always have the best price, but they often do. And as an Amazon Prime member, getting my parts in two days is hard to beat. »
Anyone else notice that the (poorly-concealed Dell) monitor in the video below seems to be displaying the screen in a contracted "overscan" view? Looks like they couldn't get the video driver to work right before recording this demo... »
Deflecting blame may be more effective when it's accurate. Sometimes, you really have been hindered by a co-worker who doesn't answer emails, a contractor who evaded difficult questions, or a maintenance worker who interrupted your work because there's a leak in the lab above your office and they have to get into the… »
