Danial Hallock10,323No Name NeededIt's getting close to the Holiday Season, and the whole point of this particular part of the season is to "give thanks" to the people (or, in America, things) that have positively impacted your life.  For me, these are those people.You all should remember my initial circle The Three Hundred (http://goo.gl/kqE8h) which was well received at 251 +1s and 48 reshares.  This circle was my first round of hyper-vetting individuals for circling, based on a lot of criteria that was centered around high quality content and a high level of engagement.  I think I combed through about 2,300 profiles on a one-by-one basis before arriving at the final product.That circle then morphed into the The Collaborative Circle (http://goo.gl/Ex9ai) which was less publicized, but still racked in 90 +1s and 13 reshares.  This circle was based on the premise that "If four people from The Three Hundred enjoy person X, then I should also enjoy them."  Well, the combination of these circles lead to an interesting scenario in which I was able to locate all stars through a combination of overlap and relevance (via Google algorithms).  Out popped these twenty five individuals, and I could not be happier with the results.  These are twenty-five individuals in which I am subscribed, their posts are always enjoyable as well as insightful, and the notification stream keeps me engaged throughout the day.Whether you're looking at the tech news from +Mike Elgan, the social and scientific commentary of +Yonatan Zunger, or the general internet awesomeness that is the enigma of +Sarah Rios, you're not going to be disappointed.I normally only notify people that are contained within a circle, but these people are too awesome not to be guilty of a little plus-spam;  feel free to request a removal from the notified (all) circles.(Link to this post: http://goo.gl/AlsXG5) #nonameneeded   #circleshare   #sharingiscaring   #sharedcircle  2013-11-13 23:53:242639671

Danial Hallock6,447The Power of FiveFor the next five months, I will be taking the last five circles shared by five individuals and comparing them against one another for people who appear multiple times.  After all, we all have circles that we routinely share because we think the people in them are awesome, so if we all end up sharing the same people, then we all agree that they're awesome, right? This month, I took the following people and put their last five created and shared (not transitive shares) circles into one circle per person (e.g all five of +martin shervington's circle went into one circle).  I then hovered over each and every one of the individuals in those circles and my own (300: http://goo.gl/kqE8h) and for every person that appeared in 3 or more (50% or more) of the circles, I added them to this collaborative circle.This month is:+martin shervington+Armando Lioss +Cesare Riccardo +Carter Gibson +Kurt Smith These five sponsors provided about 19 circles and 1,400 people; and the resulting 58 people were endorsed by at least fifty percent of the sponsors.Next month, I'll add to this circle the collaborative efforts of:+Kate Savage +Euro Maestro +Mike Elgan +Dede Craig King +Stephanie Van Pelt  #circleshare   #sharingiscaring   #thepoweroffive   #collaborativecircle  2013-05-02 16:19:355916110
Danial Hallock6,447The Bible in 365This is the only time that this circle will be shared publicly, because this project will take place through a community setting.  I'll be working on setting up the community here in the next few weeks and invites/meta-updates will be sent directly to this circle.The reason I'm sharing this circle is (a) I like these people and (b) this is a last-call for inclusion on this project.  If you would like to join this project (which is detailed here:  http://goo.gl/EAFFD) then please post below and I will add you to this circle.  If I've added you to this circle in error, then please post below and I will remove you from it.If you're just wanting to read, and not participate, then don't worry.  I will be posting content to the community and sharing it through my stream via Extended Circles. These shares will be locked and disabled so I don't have to manage conversations in multiple places. Inclusion in this circle just gets you an invite to the community and you can determine your level of participation from there.I'm pretty excited about this, and I hope you are too. #bible365   #circleshare   #sharingiscaring  2013-05-02 14:29:5936605
Danial Hallock6,197The Three Hundred"Completed" CopyAs most of you probably know by now, I have been working on a #circlemanagement  project for quite some time now, in which I sought to increase the vetting process that occurs when I add people to my circles.  As most of you also know, I've been absolutely swamped and have barely had time to share content (let alone post my own or curate circles), so it's taken me a while to get here.However, after only six months to the day (lucky coincidence) I've managed to finish what I would consider a mostly-complete copy of this circle.  You can see the vetting process and the history of it here (http://goo.gl/kqE8h), and as always I encourage you to add and share this circle as you see fit!If you're notified, you're in it!  If you do not wish to be included in any future circle shares, please let me know via private message. #circleshare   #sharingiscaring   #engagers  2013-04-20 13:17:463019813101

Pam Adger22,892This circle represents 50 of the people I would love to hang out with one on one for a day or seven. I don’t believe in huge circle shares and this circle is twice the size of most I share but I just couldn't make it smaller. I did leave out some people who never post publicly because you wouldn't benefit from circling them. I am amazed that I had to limit this to 50. 2012-12-31 18:28:305034026

Carter Gibson628,961The Lifeblood of my Google+ ExperienceThe people in this circle (and I'm sure I've forgotten some of you!) are some of the most amazing people I've ever interacted with, online or off or both! I could not recommend this circle more highly. They're artists, bloggers, business owners, and the list goes on and on. Something they all share is that they are amazing people who I would do a favor for in a heartbeat. If you want to surround yourself with good people, this is an excellent circle to add. So, go on and circle up :)2012-11-30 21:16:131491251997
Dave Tozier0+Danial Hallock originally shared this post:The Three HundredRevised CopyIt's been about a month since my last share of #thethreehundred  so I wanted to share the revised copy of the circle; and true to my word, there have been a lot of revisions in the last month.For example, I've gone through each and every one of the 200 some odd recommendations and circle shares that came about from the last circle share.  As a result, of the original 297 that were shared a little under a month ago (http://goo.gl/xqGb4), I removed approximately 137 300ers and added 129 new members.  You can expect this circle to continue to change, but I think the triple digit adjustments are mostly done.  For those of you just joining us, this is a continuation of a project where I've been changing my #circlemanagement  strategy from purpose based to engagement based (http://goo.gl/kqE8h).As always, If you're notified you're in it.

Logan Cate0My most relevant G+ circle. Inspired by +Carter Gibson, this is a circle of the people I love interacting with. You'll find all sorts in here, from tech geeks to movie lovers to photographers to the "just plain awesome" people I've found here on G+. With one or two exceptions, I don't think I've met any of these people. But I'd gladly do so, any time, any place. And really, I'm hoping to. That's how cool these folks are. If your stream needs any spicing up, or you just want to check that you're following all the right people, grab this circle. ;)2012-07-23 23:27:039914213

Danial Hallock (Kysimir)0Tell Me SomethingMy final circle share for hopefully a long time (they're exhausting)!  This is my engager's circle, and as you can see, unlike most "top engagers" circles, it contains significantly less than five hundred people.  Part of that is because, in large part, the people in my No Name Needed circle (http://goo.gl/P69EF) are my top engagers.  I'm also fairly new to Google Plus, so I'm still locating all of the superb engagers (feel free to recommend people below).However, these posters are all individuals that I have interacted with on some level and we've either interacted enough or I've seen them interact with others enough to know that they are, beyond a doubt, "superb engagers" who enjoy commenting on your posts or replying to your thoughts as much as they do creating their own content.Enjoy! #circleshare   #engagers   #engagement   #sharingiscaring  2012-06-23 14:04:06197010

[Well, that was relatively painless]

I was speaking with a friend earlier today about design and keeping things simple, next thing you know, I'm re-visiting ReactJS and making a user card.  Sure, it's super-simple, but that's kind of the idea, thinking in the smallest units possible (where it makes sense) and then building up until you have something.

Well, I have a small something built, now to get the other small somethings done so that I can put them together into a bigger something :)

[PSA: Email scam!]

Beware of the following email scam, it's pretty easy to mistake for a legit email if you're not used to getting emails from Google.

Google's addresses will always have a symbol next to them verifying that they are legitimate emails and I have never seen a legit email address from Google that had an extra noun in the domain.  Notice that in this email, the would-be scammer uses an email address with "@google.account.com", this should be a red-flag to everyone.

Also note the button used in the email, it's close enough to Google's style, but hovering the mouse over it reveals a non-google URL (see screenshot of my terminal for the URL this button is pointing to).

Here's Google's own documentation regarding these types of emails (note it's a proper Google domain using HTTPS):

[Mini-Rant]

I get really irritated when following a course/tutorial on YouTube and end up with a missing video that is usually really important and contains the necessary instructions so as to not end up with tons of errors in the tutorial code.  I get even more irritated when I go to the site where the video series was made only to find that they too are missing the video and all subsequent videos reference that one as it contains important concepts crucial to being able to complete the series.

[Well, that was relatively painless]

I was speaking with a friend earlier today about design and keeping things simple, next thing you know, I'm re-visiting ReactJS and making a user card.  Sure, it's super-simple, but that's kind of the idea, thinking in the smallest units possible (where it makes sense) and then building up until you have something.

Well, I have a small something built, now to get the other small somethings done so that I can put them together into a bigger something :)

[Ugh...]

I really wanted to use +Polymer for my site (and some other projects), but I'm not about to sit here and fudge around with writing 3x the amount of code just to get something to work in more than one browser.  

When writing everything by hand is an easier option (with regard to browser compatibility) than using a library/toolkit/framework/etc, then there's a problem and it's time to choose a new technology.

We've had great results with React at work and while I really don't like the idea of writing that much JavaScript, it's a much better alternative at this point.

Maybe when Polymer is a bit more mature and it's model more compatible with other browsers (at the very least, +Mozilla Firefox) then I'll be able to look at it for more than just a "personal project" library.  Until then, I'll just haveto... more »

Maybe when Polymer is a bit more mature and it's model more compatible with other browsers (at the very least, +Mozilla Firefox) then I'll be able to look at it for more than just a "personal project" library.  Until then, I'll just have to keep an eye on it while I actively pursue the use of tools that don't care as much about which browser I'm using.

/rant

Note: This is not to say that Polymer isn't worth learning and using, it's just that in my (very) limited experience, it's been more hassle than I realized in order to get very simple tasks accomplished.  I really like the Shadow DOM concept and the use of HTML5 imports as a way of using things, I just wish I didn't have to jump through hoops to use something that was supposed to be largely a "drop-in" tool and advertised as something that "makes it easier and faster to create anything from a button to a complete application across desktop, mobile, and beyond."

All of that said, I am still glad that I took the time to get familiar with the basics of what +Polymer offers, it was a very good learning experience and the documentation is very helpful for the initial "get up and running" phase.  It's the "it's time to get something non-trivial accomplished" phase that I got stuck in.___

There goes that idea. At least I don't have anything worthwhile on the +Google Play store. Looks like I might have to change my app dev plans to using other platforms, like +Mozilla FirefoxOS and +Tizen, even if it means less potential users.

Google is now requiring app developers to add their physical address which will be shown on the app details page. This is a huge deal for indie app developers.

Just by having an email address on the app detail page I get spammed with about 20-40 emails a day (with filters). This week someone emailed me and threatened my life (he was crazy and thought I worked for the government and stole his information). Just think if he had my physical address and lived near by.

Yes, I could go get a P.O. box but can Google pay for it? They already take 30%. None of which has ever been used to advertise my apps.

[A bit of visual fun]

+Matthew Graybosch shared an image from his book "Without Bloodshed" [1] and I liked it a lot, but it was a bit hard for me to look at (black on white).  So, I asked his permission to make a negative out of it and exchange the white for gray.  Matthew was very obliging and asked only that I post the result, so here it is!

I'm thinking of going slightly darker on the gray for a more subtle and "from out of the shadows" look, but I'm happy with this as is.  Screenshots of this as a desktop background are in the works, I just have to make a few changes so that it looks better on a dual-screen setup.

Thanks to +Matthew Graybosch for providing the image and permission to manipulate it, as well as to +GIMP for having such an easy tool to use for things like this :)

[The best kind of interruption]

My youngest daughter, Anastasia, came running up to my desk while I was refactoring some code prior to heading off to bed and left this for me before running away again.  I asked her what it was as she was rushing back to her room and she said "It's a present for you!"

I don't always enjoy being interrupted when in deep thought, but when I do, it's because my daughter wants to remind me of the work that really matters :)

I was "in the zone" and didn't realize that +Lynea Tomlinson was taking pictures of me while playing.  This GIF came out perfectly timed!

For those wondering, I was warming up with the intro riff to "Sweet Child O' Mine" (the GNR version) before practicing a bit of the main theme to "Cliffs of Dover" by Eric Johnson.  I have to start off slow, it's been a while and my wrist is still plenty sore from a football (soccer for my fellow Americans) injury.  

Once I'm back up to speed, I plan on tackling Canon and Canon Rock :)

[Something that isn't code]

I am officially a coach for the j10-2 team at Sola Fotballklubb.  The team became so large that they had to split it into two and I was asked if I would be willing to volunteer as a coach.  Tonight I headed up my first practice with the team.

I was amazed at just how comfortable the girls were with me coaching, as well as how comfortable I was taking the role of a coach (it's an all-girls team).  I decided to start off with some team building exercises, beginning with each of the kids learning each other's names during passing drills and ending with a scrimmage in which they applied what they learned during the regular practice.  They all responded really well and seemed to have a lot of fun.  At the end, each one came up to me and thanked me for helping.  All in all, it was an amazing evening for me and the team :)

I decided to take on the role (despite how busy I already am) because I want to help out my local community and being able to practice Norwegian outside of the office and classroom is a huge plus.  Also, it gives me an excuse to get outside and be more physically active, which is important to me as I'm trying to live healthier.___

Very much worth reading for an overview of all of the major areas of discussion.

However it turns out (I'm in favor of Scottish independence on principle), it will be awesome to see the majority of Scots expressing their wishes by vote.  This is supposed to be a landmark for voter turnout if the press is to be trusted.

[The newest member of the family]

When I came to Norway last year, I was unable to bring my Dean Vendetta with me and so I left it with one of my best friends until I could sort out how to safely ship it out here without costing an arm and a leg.  The logistics of that venture are still being sorted out, but I had been having this ill feeling for the last several months that was just getting worse and worse.  I needed a musical outlet and tapping away at my daughter's keyboard was just not cutting it.

With my wife's blessing (she misses my playing), I decided on a small budget to purchase another guitar and began the process of narrowing down choices among used guitars on Finn.no (the Norwegian equivalent to CraigsList). I saw this one and it was love at first sight.  Once I saw the price I knew I had to jump on it, the seller was practically giving it away!

I saw this one and it was love at first sight.  Once I saw the price I knew I had to jump on it, the seller was practically giving it away!

As I have a habit of naming every instrument that I've ever owned after several hours of playing them, I've dubbed this one "Layla".  Layla was made in Norway by Morgan Instrument AS and came with an 18 Watt Roland "Cube-15" amplifier, as well as a Morgan gig bag.  She hadn't ever been oiled, cleaned, properly strung, and probably had hardly ever been allowed to sing (there were zero prints on the fretboard and no wear-marks or indentations on the neck!), so I went to 4sound's shop in Kvadrat and picked up everything I'd need to make sure she was in working order.

Once I plugged her into the amp, got her tuned, and started playing, I was amazed at her range.  There's no static or muffling in the pickups and they respond to my style of playing quite well.

I still miss my Vendetta and definitely want to try and get it out here soon, but I'm very happy with this decision and will certainly be spending plenty of time with Layla in the near and far future :)

Lahna wanted a look that could be both "moody" but also very much "I'm just a kid having fun", so we went with a very simple look.  Some eyeliner, light, sweeping brush strokes for the eye shadow, and a "faded black" look for her lips.  It was really fun to watch her reactions to the way her appearance changed during each step of the process; there were a lot of laughs to be had :)

Dads of daughters, I highly recommend that you learn about the basics of make-up and fashion, and are available and open-minded when your daughters start asking about it.  Doing so opens up a lot of opportunities to bond and makes them feel more comfortable with growing up and finding their identity as young women.  I am very thankful that my daughters trust me with their questions and little moments like this are priceless fun that will never be forgotten.

The pictures below were taken by me with my LG G3 on our front patio.___

Know your limits, and always leave yourself a way to easily roll-back changes just in case you break something :)

Ran out of time on my flexi-pass but had remembered to setup Kolumbus's Billett app weeks ago, one tap later and I'm showing the driver my flexi-pass onscreen. Now, rather than using my card, I just show the driver my screen until next month when I need to refill again.

What will really impress me is when I can just use NFC to scan in. :)

Actually, that's not a bad idea at all, it might even help to put some warmongers in check.

Thanks to +Julia Street for sharing :)

Thanks to +Daniel Sandman for recommending that I not forget about +Jolla and #SailfishOS .  I did more research on the platform and decided I'd warm up to the "mode" of working on projects today by getting a dev environment set up.

This should be interesting >.>

[Ute på tur]

+Lynea Tomlinson og jeg gikk på tur i dag.  Det er en fin sti nær huset vårt med mange trær og den er perfekt for turer.

Lynea and I went for a walk today.  There is a nice path near our house with many trees and it's perfect for taking walks.

I received my course certificate for completing my A2 Norwegian course!

I'm still debating on whether or not I'll take the B1 course at the beginning of next year or if I'm going to take a stab at the Bergenstest[1][2].  Either way, I'm happy for getting this for and for all of the friends and colleagues out here that have answered all of my silly questions and wracked their brains trying to understand what I'm trying to say to them :)

[Throwback Thursday]

24 December 2001, the day after +Lynea Tomlinson married me :)

She was 18 and I was 17.  Now that I feel old, I'm going to go sit out on the lawn and yell at the kids that come near to get off of it >.>
