    This new "Swift" language is kind of like python but with brackets - which is pretty sweet!

    I'm fine with objective-c, but this will significantly lower the bar to writing iOS apps I think.
    Yep, that and the family sharing announcements were the cool ones in my world.

    Man, Chrome Remote Desktop is handy as hell. I have my home machine grinding away on the swim team photo processing (exporting from LightRoom). I forgot to add the watermark to the images, and was able to use L4 remotely from my Nexus 4, add the watermark, start a new export, then upload to Smugmug. Very handy when I have to start operations that take two hours.

    Awesome​.

    I need to install it on my dad's and mother-in-law's machines so I can support from afar.

    I set up a Tasker script on my phone to disable the lock screen when I'm at home or at work. Very convenient.

    I can't believe I didn't think of this earlier -- there were plenty of examples out there already. Hell, it should be a core phone feature, IMO.

    Short family trip this weekend... in the hotel, I spun up a wifi hotspot on my phone, and hosted our Chromecast on it. Worked great on the hotel TV to view netflix. Cool stuff.

    I am getting pulled from my current project at work to manage a different project being outsourced to a global player but they need a company PM to mange them, their costs, and the internal resources. The project is building out redundant data centers with a private cloud and replicated storage. My technical hands on background is large scale networking and infrastructure design and implementation but for this one I will be just managing. I took a look at the high level architecture diagrams today. The core of the network for both LAN and SAN is a set of eight switches that have 96 one hundred gigabit Ethernet ports each.

    It's a private cloud with lit fiber between datacenters. Internet is on the edge. This is the core. Pure insanity.

    That's pretty cool. Crazy though. Many more attacks coming from North America than I'd anticipated. I wonder what % of all attack sources this represents.

    I'm using Chromecast on the TV at our vacation home to avoid paying for cable twice.

    I get local HD channels with an antenna. Netflix, and some other built in apps on the TV over the internet.

    I use Chromecast to get Xfinity TV go from my home cable account over my laptop to the TV.

    Unfortunately Xfinity TV Go doesn't work with the version of flash in the web browser in the TV, hence the Chromecast work around.

    But I end up being able to essentially replicate my home cable channels in a second home and only pay for cable, and HBO once.

    I have a 128GB USB 3.0 flash drive I am using Clonezilla to make it my main drive. So I can borrow most similar laptops and only need my USB to have "my entire PC".

    I was killing time on DC Rainmaker this weekend and stumbled across this old post:

    Hands on review of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Active ANT+ enabled waterproof phone | DC Rainmaker

    and the bar mount:
    A review of the SportyPal Sony Ericsson Xperia Active Bike Mount | DC Rainmaker

    These babies are for sale unlocked on ebay for about $150... they are ant+ enabled... so has anybody tried using one as a head unit? Seems like it might be handy, even if you never activate the cell service.

    at first I thought you meant that you had found a hotel with decent wifi... but I'm sure you mean that your 4g phone was the source, right?

    Yep. I think it would be easiest to bring a router and plug into the Ethernet in the room, but fewer rooms offer wired connections these days.

    Many travel routers support a WISP mode and can be had for $30 or less. This wireless ISP router mode is secure and much easier to configure than trying to maintain security in AP, extender or repeater mode. When I bring mine on trips I replicate the home config so all devices connect as if they were on the home network.
