Your definition of a "dream job" sounds like it could be any new job.[1] Why not look for a new job instead (since you should be relatively marketable with thirteen (13) years of software development experience)?

What about the "RedBoard" (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11575)?

For that purpose, the redboard is essentially the same as an UNO. I have one of each and can swap them out with no problems.

Redboard also has a USB mini connector, not the full sized square one that standard Uno has. Personally I'd prefer the mini connector, I've always thought that the USB connector was the most oversized thing on an Arduino board.


colechristensen 23 days ago | link

The inertia the USB mini connector has in the electronics development arena has annoyed me for years. The connector was deprecated in 2007 and replaced by the rather superior and now very prevalent micro, yet builders just don't seem to want to switch.

As sbarron noted, the two boards are very very similar. What color do you like more?


...PBS begets ABC.

Actually, Apple has a relationship with the Walt Disney Company[1], which owns the ABC, ESPN and the Disney channels - and many more. Perhaps these additional TV apps were added after enough content creators agreed to whatever terms.

Also, interestingly enough, there is a show on Disney Junior that first premiered on the Disney Junior iPhone/iPad app before it was shown on the regular Disney Junior TV channel. Maybe this is a new model to beta test new content?

I think that the Apple TV is best misunderstood product that Apple makes (and perhaps it's misunderstood, and sometimes frustrating, because it's dependent on another device - your TV).


I think it's debatable based on your view of a company's purpose: is it to serve its stockholders or is it to serve its customers?


It literally nearly killed me.

Is this related to the health issues briefly discussed in your latest year-in-review posting[1]?

... The people willing to tolerate this mess don't generally intersect with the startup crowd.

But this is a space that could be disrupted (albeit not easily). And isn't Clever[1] trying to do something similar in the education space?

According to IMDB, and other websites, in the movie, "Point Break", Johnny Utah (Keanu Reeves) is attributed with the following:

Wars of religion always make me laugh because basically you're fighting over who has the best imaginary friend.[1]

However, I have not heard this quote spoken by any character within the movie. And a quick web search of a variation of the quote attributes it to "anonymous". Does anyone know if this quote was actually spoken in the movie "Point Break"?

All I can offer is this: Three separate sites that have the script[1][2] (or a transcription[3] of the movie) all fail to have that quote. None of them even contain the word "imaginary" and only two (the scripts, not the transcription) have the word "religion" once but in a scene description and not as dialogue. I should note that the two scripts seem to be the same. (Although who really knows where they got it. One could just copy the other.) But both are different than the transcript.

No, because...

Antibiotics promote yeast infections, including gastrointestinal Candida overgrowth, and penetration of the GI mucosa.[11] While women are more susceptible to genital yeast infections, men can in fact get them as well. Certain factors, like prolonged antibiotic use, increase the risk for both men and women. ...[1]

[1] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Candida_(fungus)


In most instances, the infections occurred after a person took antibiotics — which can wipe out the bacteria in the gut, making room for fungi like yeast to flourish ...

While the above is very plausible, it is rather unbelievable that a person could have enough Brewer's Yeast and fermentable material in their gut (or intestinal tract) to produce a significant amount of ethanol.

As a reference, packages of fresh beer yeast contain about one billion cells, which is enough to inoculate five gallons of wort.[1] (Wort is pre-fermented beer.)

See the blog: Auto Brewery Syndrome from Yeast (Candida) Overgrowth http://www.mytummytantrum.com/2012/09/08/auto-brewery-syndro...

and the links there. It's true.

Obviously I've never heard of "Candida" before even though I recently linked to a Wikipedia article about it - thanks for the reference!


gisenberg 213 days ago | link

Per the referenced link, a package of fresh beer yeast contains about one hundred billion cells.

You don't have to get it from drinking beer - consider the frequency of yeast infections among women, which is not correlated with employment at breweries or bakeries.
