I LOVE that video

My little guy and I always watch the garbage trucks and street sweepers going by. I'd love to ride in something like that once. I know it's different when it's a job :p

Currently if I'm going to have a cup of joe, it's going to be done one of three ways - listed below starting with most often used.

  1. Keurig. It's super easy and there's a variety
  2. Aeropress. For when I want to spend a little extra time making amazing coffee
  3. French Press. For groups, or for a long day. I still need to perfect my French Press process.

So - what about you?

Definitely Once again, hooray for basic functionality

Editing and deleting posts should now be linked to on the actual posts

As Deridder pointed out - the functionality existed, so really all I had to do was add the buttons and do security checks

The robotics book is great. There's a store that sells a kit of things that you need for the book as well, which is a GREAT way to inexpensively start to mess with things.

Lonewolf - I'll take a better pic of my keyboard/mouse setup. It's been great for my wrists and arms.

Torino started this, and I figured I would post a couple of pictures. 

This is my main work desk Most of the servers that I work on are remote, and so it's pretty much just a normal computer setup, though nice and messy. In this picture I am just switching from my old desktop to using a surface pro 3 for most of my work. That way whether I'm at home or on the go, I can be working from the same computer.

 

This is my work environment at my in-laws place :p Tablet/laptop, mouse, and some coffee. Always coffee

Not nearly as exciting as large machinery, but I certainly enjoy it.

That one sounds like fun

I think there is an old ant simulator out there somewhere. Something like that would be fun too - being part of a larger colony.

My advice, don't avoid it. Just watch it. I would bet everyone else will have watched it too. It's a good anime, and one to not miss out on.

This show is a perfect example of taking a nice sci fi idea, and just butchering it. I've been quite tired, recently, of sci fi shows that feel like they only get 50% of the way there.

You haven't seen Death Note? What are you waiting for? XD I think it's on most of the streaming services. GREAT anime!

I'll take a look at both of the recommendations and get back to you

It's always interesting to see how a book is going to start. "Happiness? Happiness... is to wake up, on a bright spring morning, after an exhausting first night spent with a beatiful... passionate.. multi-murderess." "... Shit, is that all?" I think I might already love this book Iain M. Banks writes great books, we'll see if this turns out to be another.

I'm always a little behind due to waiting on things to become available for streaming. Season 5 is now available on Amazon Instant Video! woot! I've watched it now, and wanted to know what others thought. MANY SPOILERS below. Obviously the biggest arc in season 5 was Will dying. I think without something this big, the season would have fallen on it's face. Alicia and Kerry moving into their own offices was fun, but the nearly immediate mention of a merger between the new firm firm and the old was rough. I enjoyed the stress on Alicia's marriage due to Will's death, as well as the NSA and reddit references. So - looking forward to season 6

Destiny is just about as hyped as any other game in recent history. I watched a bit of a live steam, and didn't come away impressed. Have any of you played it, and if so, what are your thoughts?
