Weather Timeline

Weather is kind of important here in Texas.
We get wonderful wrath-of-god lightning storms, tornadoes, and heat. Nice to know which of the in between days when you're going to need an umbrella.
Weather Timeline pulls data from without any ads, and with a three-day and week-long focus.

The charts are, maybe, a bit much, but better mute than less...

Reading books makes you better.

No, you really don't need an anti-virus on a Chromebook.

I'm completely ripping-off Jerry Hildenbrand from Android Central, but I certainly haven't heard a better explanation of security on a Chromebook...

"...Chrome OS is updated monthly without any user intervention, and the update process is seamless and you won't notice it. Every time you start your Chromebook is checks for a new version, and if one is available it's downloaded and the next time you start up you're running it. 
And every time you start your Chromebook Verified Boot checks to make sure nothing has changed in the operating system, and if it thinks anything has been tampered with, it starts from the last verified copy you downloaded from Google instead.
You won't have to worry about malware, spyware or viruses on Chrome OS.
If something does go wrong (people who want to break into your laptop are smart) you would be dumped into a recovery screen that tells you which keys to press to wipe the copy of the OS and download it fresh.
As long as you haven't turned off security features by flipping the developer mode switch (think of it as unlocking the bootloader), you'll not have to worry about anything you didn't say was OK to do on a Chromebook."

Metric - it makes sense.

In metric, one milliliter of water occupies one cubic centimeter weighs one gram, and requires one calorie of energy to heat up by one degree centigrade-which is percent of the difference between its freezing point and its boiling point. An amount of hydrogen weighing the same amount has exactly one mole of atoms in it.
Whereas in the American system, the answer to “How much energy does it take to boil a room-temperature gallon of water” is “Go fuck yourself" because you can't directly relate any of those quantities.

Logic, Windows-user style

Antivirus X is crap! I always get infected.

Have you tried using Antivirus Y?

Never heard of them. They must be even more crap than X!

Okay. That'll be $200 for the virus removal, and $40 more for the upgraded copy of X.


Looking at the battery indicator on my phone, thinking, "it used to recharge faster than this."
Looks like my phone and I have something in common.
