Re: Let's All Take A Breath

You missed the point of the article, in particular the quote from Harold F. Dodge. If you have buggy software, by the time it reaches integration test, it is almost too late to fix the bugs. At that point, fixing one bug gives rise to several [more]

Re: Reading recommendations for 12 year old boy

I remember reading Sounder as a kid and I would call it more melancholy than depressing. I liked it anyway.

As for new books, the only YA things I've read recently were part of The Bartimaeus Sequence by Jonathan Stroud. It's a little in the [more]

Re: HDCP Error

Switching the cable ends didn't help but using a different cable helped some. Still when I turn off the TV the next time I get the same error but now I just unplug and plug back in the HDMI cable. I solved the issue of it not going full screen by [more]

Re: HDCP Error

I'm getting an "HDCP unauthorised. Content disabled" error with the new Roku 2 box playing Netflix and hooked to my TV via HDMI. It replaced a Roku XD that was hooked to the same TV via RCA jacks. If I pull the power cord from the Roku [more]

Re: Android phone question

Can they be removed safely? If so, will they just get reinstalled anyway?

Most of the Google apps cannot be removed unless you are rooted. That said, there are settings in the Play store app that may solve your problem. You can either [more]

Re: Chris Froome

Re: Battlebots

After 13 years away from TV, ABC brought back Battlebots this past Sunday. I got addicted all over again. I love trash TV. As an engineer, I love seeing how all the Battlebots are built. When it first air years ago, I always wanted to build my [more]

Re: Stuck Sparge

I don't see any ingredients in there that are particularly gummy. There's enough of the Maris Otter and other barley with hulls that should prevent things from getting stuck.

You can science too - it's easy!

If you’ve always wanted a career in science, but never got around to studying biology, physics or whatever it is that you’re interested in, don’t fear – being (treated as) an authority is easier than you might think.

Re: True Detective 7/12/15

I thought this episode was pretty entertaining and, like you said, the shootout at the end is hopefully a turning point. I'm also finding myself less and less interested in Vince Vaughn's character. To me, the interesting part of the show lies past [more]

Re: Police at a DUI stop

I dunno. While this guy wasn't drugged, it seems logical from the cop's perspective that if Joe Average wants to keep his window rolled up, he might be trying to prevent an odor from being emitted from his vehicle. Maybe just a fart, or maybe - [more]

Couldn't help myself. I had to see where they were going. I may actually continue for a while hoping to heck that Stanton can teach Berry how to act.

Re: Last Pass & stolen emails

Then why do they want everyone to change their password?

I think it's mainly a precaution. While their system for encryption and password security is good, they have no control over how people use it. You might think that anyone who [more]
