Cold.  It's just cold in this old house.  Tonight it's air temperature -6F/-21C, windchill -25F/-31C.  We'll see if +Logan Quinn's donated wool blanket makes tonight more comfortable for sleeping restfully.

Done.  I'm a homeowner.  I now owe about $54K and am feeding the exponential economy like a proper short-sighted capitalist.  I'm very tired, and I've barely begun to move my stuff.  All that's on hold, though, until the winter storm has passed.  I'm looking forward to planting season.  Should we take bets now for the month when I'm first burgled or robbed?  I need sleep.

So did nothing ever come of the effort to get a native #GoogleDrive client on #Linux ?  I go to the official download page, but it still says, "There is no Drive app for Linux at this time. Please use Drive on the web and on your  mobile devices."  - https://www.google.com/drive/download/

I just installed the commercial client from +Insync to give it a whirl, since it seemed to garner the best recommendations.  That Linux users should pay for what other people get for free still boggles me.  #DriveForLinux

+Cartoon Network is unprepared for life in the digital age.  Since I cut the cord with cable/satellite television, I find that I'm unable to watch Stephen Universe (legally).  They have no dvd's for hardcopy purchase.  They have only a few scattered full episodes for viewing online.  Creating an online account requires a television provider account (which I don't have).  How is an internet-only viewer supposed to enjoy (and financially support) their show? 

My suggestion: join with +Netflix US & Canada.  I pay them money, so why don't you piggyback on their platform for a proverbial slice of the pie?

So can anyone recommend a home security system for the home tinkerer?  It seems like there might be good systems in 5-10 years for  homeowners to install themselves, but right now it's a mishmash of technologies.  I'd like to get back to sleeping soundly at night, and I think home technology will help soothe my primitive mind instincts (especially when the gunshot rate increases with warm weather soon).

Linux really is ready for prime time, folks.  Please give #LinuxMint a try the next time you upgrade to a new computer (or before you ditch your old one).  Last night, I successfully used a donated #Chromecast unit (thanks +Michael Vieths ) to watch "Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic" from +Netflix US & Canada downstairs on my tv. 

Netflix has the annoying habit of periodically asking for input to prove that I'm still there, which means walking back upstairs to my computer.  Someday I'll get a small pda (I'm waiting on my +rufus labs cuff) that will be more convenient to use while I'm sitting in the recliner chair.

I did have to use a non-Linux device to register the Chromecast unit.  I've already filed a bug report with Google about that oversight.  Once registered, however, it works great on Linux.  Yay!

More gunshots at 4:54am today.  I met another neighbor this week.  His name was Chen, and he had one of those teardrop tattoos.  Are there asian gangs fighting black gangs here?  I had no idea that any part of Minneapolis was a warzone.

The musical thumping began about 4:30am, and has continued since then.  I thought at first it was a car, but I think now that's it's the house immediately to my north.  And occasional shouting voices.  This is more disruptive than listening to the angry man at the old place (2 houses north, but in line of my bedroom window) shout at his kids and wife.  At least that nonsense was just during normal hours.

Ouch.  Just.... ouch.  It was about $2600 for repairs.  That's more money than I was estimating.  I had to dip even farther into my savings account than what I moved last night.  I still have enough saved to absorb one more major problem, but that's now my limit.

I know that having any money saved at all means that I am in better financial position than the majority of USA citizens.  I'm down to a 6-month buffer, which still puts me better off than 71% of USA citizens (see chart linked).  I should feel lucky, right, that the "bar" here is so low that I'm well off in comparison?  How exactly did we stop being a civilized nation?

Car repairs.  Yuck.  The last arctic blast destroyed whatever was left of my car's suspension.  I knew this moment was coming, but I have to get it repaired now.  With two major expenditures under my belt during the last month, I'll be running short for 2016 already.  I'll have not-quite-a-year's savings. 

There's no time to ask the various neighbors for suggestions on good mechanics in this area, so I'll just take it tomorrow morning to the same place I've been going for the last decade.

More shots, closer than last week, but I still can't tell what direction.  I had my cell phone ready to call 911, but then I realized it wouldn't really help since the shots weren't immediately near me, and I didn't know what direction they were.  Luckily, Minneapolis invested in Shot Spotter technology.  And there's public data.  For Jan 5-11, 2016, I live near that blue star at the top left.  Lovely, isn't it?  The cat and I will be jumpy for a while.

Wow.  I just learned on another thread that I can watch +Netflix US & Canada natively on Linux.  I had to install the Chrome browser, not the Chromium open-source version that is available via the software manager.  Netflix was the only reason I'd been running a Windows VM.  Now if I could only convince +Microsoft Developer to port Powershell to Linux!  It's the only thing still missing since I made the switch 1.5 years ago.

It's kind of creepy when a total stranger knocks on your door, turns your door handle (locked), then later wants to roam inside your house.  Yes, he's supposedly there to sell an ADT security system, and it surely helps his sales to have potential customers feeling paranoid. 

I didn't let him inside.  I kept referring only to myself, though, but I never corrected him when he thought multiple adults lived inside.  At least the 512 area code (Austin TX) phone number on his paperwork matches the name at OkCaller.com.  Still... guess I should try to justify the cost of a security system.  Probably about the same cost ($37/month) as getting a dog, though, and I'd rather have the dog in the house.

Bed, computer, and cat are moved.  Cat is stressed and meowing constantly.  We'll be fine as soon as she accepts the litterbox in its current location.

Linux Mint is awesome; this new $20 PCI-Express Wireless card worked flawlessly on first try.  New tv using Mohu HD antenna also worked and found 46 broadcast channels. (I have no interest in about 1/2 of them, but it's still a better percentage than cable programming.)

Tired.  I expect tomorrow to be tiring too.  Progress, at least.  :)

Done.  I'm a homeowner.  I now owe about $54K and am feeding the exponential economy like a proper short-sighted capitalist.  I'm very tired, and I've barely begun to move my stuff.  All that's on hold, though, until the winter storm has passed.  I'm looking forward to planting season.  Should we take bets now for the month when I'm first burgled or robbed?  I need sleep.

Achievement Unlocked: Blocked by a Stranger
For twice linking historical evidence in support of my position while failing to be swayed by histrionics without evidence.  I think?  The Hillary Clinton camp seems to be growing more worried.  That's probably a good sign, overall.  And I wasn't even arguing about Bernie vs. Hillary, just the etymology of the phrase "[political candidate] or Bust".

For the curious...

Arthritis.  Yuck.  I went to the Doctor today to check on what I thought was kidney trouble.  X-Rays, however, showed that instead I have arthritis on my spine at the area where I'm feeling the trouble.  I could see that something was different at that joint, even to my untrained eye.

He suggested trying sleeping on a couch to see if maybe a mattress change would help (before spending the money on one), doing some stretches before sleeping, and maybe some cartilage vitamin supplements if I wanted to try them for a month.

When exactly did I get so old?  It seems that I've aged at least a decade during the last 5 years alone.  :)

I remember very little of the Sign language that I learned decades ago, but I still recognize about half of what she's saying.  "Protect Earth; Nature see you."  (and there's a related French website NatureSeeYou.com but it seems to lack functionality)

Electronics powered by ATP?  This technology is the transhumanist gamechanger that I've been waiting to see.  Glucose might seem more efficient, so tech could pull power from the bloodstream, but I'm not sure it's a good idea to train the human body for long-term high glucose levels. (On the other hand, that power has to come from somewhere eventually.)

Hybrid integrated biological–solid-state system powered with adenosine triphosphate

by
Jared M. Roseman, Jianxun Lin, Siddharth Ramakrishnan, Jacob K. Rosenstein & Kenneth L. Shepard

"There is enormous potential in combining the capabilities of the biological and the solid state to create hybrid engineered systems. While there have been recent efforts to harness power from naturally occurring potentials in living systems in plants and animals to power complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor integrated circuits, here we report the first successful effort to isolate the energetics of an electrogenic ion pump in an engineered in vitro environment to power such an artificial system. An integrated circuit is powered by adenosine triphosphate through the action of Na+/K+ adenosine triphosphatases in an integrated in vitro lipid bilayer membrane. The ion pumps (active in the membrane at numbers exceeding 2 × 106 mm−2) are able to sustain a short-circuit current of 32.6 pA mm−2 and an open-circuit voltage of 78 mV, providing for a maximum power transfer of 1.27 pW mm−2 from a single bilayer. Two series-stacked bilayers provide a voltage sufficient to operate an integrated circuit with a conversion efficiency of chemical to electrical energy of 14.9%."

FreeAir.tv is picking up where Aereo TV left off.  Unlike Aereo, it relies on an antenna box at your home, but you can pay for a World TV package for international stations too.  I signed up with their crowdfunding effort on Indiegogo.  I hope their platform survives legal challenge where Aereo lost.

Here's a simple directory of files I uploaded from today's march in Minneapolis for #Justice4Jamar .  I stayed at the encampment during the march.  I might resize photos for later use in a blog post, but I just need to chill at home for now, so raw files are all I'm offering tonight.

So here is the intent of the new G+ web interface.  Universally disliked, though, in all of my streams.  1) it's hard to find the Info page about people or groups, 2) it's distracting to get a red(dish) bar across the top of the screen apparently warning about something perpetually, 3) the user interface is now spread across every corner of the browser window, so happy mouse clicking, 4) posts do not cover more than two columns when the browser is in widescreen, 5) all that work and still no way to manage circle memberships easily, 6) how do you even "make it go" and see new posts without hitting the browser refresh button?

I went out to the Occupy camp today. I helped pick up trash. That was my same job as last time, so I guess I'm consistent. I didn't realize there was a candlelight vigil planned for 4:30pm, or I would have stayed longer. Instead, I drove home and stopped on the way to pick up some larger trash bags that they need. I'll stop in again tomorrow. Until I start blogging about it, I think your best places for news are here:

Police apparently executed this man handcuffed behind his back, about a dozen blocks from the house that I'm trying to buy. I'll try to find out tomorrow if they're still trying to Occupy outside the police station until they release the videos. Maybe I can visit and help? The police are militarizing, as we saw previously with #Occupy camps. https://vimeo.com/146225250

Meanwhile, if you click to support this ColorOfChange petition, I suppose it's more effective than just observing from afar. I take this incident personally, since I might be living in that neighborhood soon. #Justice4Jamar #OccupyMN

I didn't even know Comcast was moving back to data caps.  I thought the net metering had ended.  I've already downloaded some 4K videos (>5GB each), and there will certainly be more of them available each year as YouTube, Netflix, and other services continue to expand that category.

A wolf/coyote/dog hybrid appears to be developing right here in the USA.  They speculate that the dog lineage is influencing the wolf lineage, allowing it to urbanize in human territory.  I find this development exciting, along the same lines as the dog evolution happening in Russia.

I'm very much looking forward to USB C connectors.  Unfortunately, not all USB C cables are the same, and bad ones could potentially damage your devices.
( Insomnia.  *sigh* )

My team at Google has been very big proponents and innovators of USB Type-C. I've worked on two Pixel products now that use the connector and its related technologies (Power Delivery, Alternate Mode, USB 3.1). It really is an amazing little connector.

However, now that there are more and more Type C products rolling out from Nexus, One+, Nokia, and more, this I have found painfully true : USB Type-C will only be as good as its ecosystem, and more specifically, the worst of its ecosystem.

I have started reviewing USB cables on Amazon because I have gotten fed up with the early cables from 3rd party vendors that so blatantly flaunt the specification and I want to hold them to task.

You may not just get weird behavior from your devices with these bad cables... What some these vendors are doing is downright dangerous.

I've been contemplating setting up a blog where I document bad cables and perhaps give some insights into USB Type C as well.

#USB   #TypeC ,
#Nexus   #ChromebookPixel   #PixelC

Today's adventure in house inspection went pretty much as expected.  I see the bank again tomorrow morning.  I should have a better sense afterwards if this is actually happening (possible) or not (also possible).  Either way, it may have cost me a precious US$1500 to find out.
