Well darn, Panda Express has discontinued their Sweet and Sour chicken. That's like the only thing our kids eat there, so blah we have to remove this from our places to visit as a family :/ What's crazy is we just got it here like a week ago. More and more places are losing their kid friendly items. Several places here in town have nothing for younger kids.

With the Amazon Dot being $35 we picked one up for both kids rooms and our upstairs living area, and what I'm really excited about is last month Amazon rolled out the Drop In feature which allows the Echo/Dot devices to act as an intercom. I'm totally excited for this now that we'll have one in most of the common areas of our house. For anyone looking to add an intercom this is probably the best and cheapest way.

I'll post more when we get the Dots in and setup.

I'm watching an amazing documentary about Netscape when it moves to Mozilla and goes open source. I thought Netscape was amazing, I used it on Unix and Windows 3.11 in the 90's and loved it. I loved The Cathedral and the Bazaar when it came out, and I have to say I wasn't surprised when Netscape went open source ... but given I loved it and didn't care for IE I was alittle hesitant. I moved to Mozilla when it first came out and stuck with it and Firefox. Admittedly I use Chrome mostly now, but i keep Firefox on all my systems.

I have or had the full page ad in NY Times when Firefox 1.0 was released, just wish I could find it :)

What a fun ride, and this documentary shows some amazing detail when it all started. An amazing documentary if you have an hour to spare.

Amazon Prime Day is going on NOW!! Just picked up two Amazon Dot's and one Echo for $150. The Dot's were $35 each, got one for each of the kids' rooms, and the Echo was 50% off and it's going in me and my wife's bedroom so we don't have to keep moving the Echo from the family room into our room when we want to listen to something in there.

Sale on these ends in like 4 hours.

I had two of the IBM 5150 systems, complete, until about 7 years ago when I moved and had to thin out my retro computing collection. Took them to Goodwill which I now regret :/ Great old systems.

Ars Technica is starting a series on the history of the IBM 5150, The complete history of the IBM PC

Part one: The deal of the century
Bill Gates, mysterious deaths, and the business machine that sparked a home revolution.

Starting with the IBM 5100 and the Datamaster, Atari's offer to build a microcomputer for IBM, the Boca Raton group, this opening part covers the background and beginnings of the project – and , of course, Bill Gates, Gary Kildall and the choice of an OS...

This is one of my favorite albums to play in the mornings while making breakfast. Listening to it now as I make whole wheat apple cinnamon pancakes for the family. If you have an Amazon Echo I just ask it to play "Album Sunday Morning Coffee" and there it is :) It's by Chip Davis who is part of Mannheim Steamroller another one of my faves, plus i believe he did some of the music for Star Trek TNG but I could be remembering wrong.

Anyway just wanted to share if anyone's looking for some nice music to start their day..

I'm kinda sad, after 3 years of wearing my Pebble I'm retiring it for a Fitbit Blaze. Not a true smartwatch, but I need something to help me get back on track with fitness. Bitter sweet how Fitbit bought Pebble then squashed them. Plus my Pebble Steel has started to have issues.

So today is my first day with the Blaze. We'll see how I goes .

I'm putting this under Politics because it is political. My mom worked for the Teenage Pregnancy Council in our county during the 80's and tried to get the local school districts to do more then abstinence only education, and the conservative mindset of our area thought even talking about sex was advocating sex.

The source data for the article talks about all states, and the ones with abstinence only education have the highest rates of teenage pregnancies. Why do so many think this is a shocking statistic?

I normally don't advocate products, but I have to throw a few words in on the Omron TENS machine. Memorial day I spent the day cleaning our pool and also picked-up a table we bought at Home Depot which probably should've been a two person job. After that my left arm, elbow, and shoulder have been paying the price. Went to the doc yesterday, and even an anti inflammatory, steroid, and some mystery shot nothing worked. Problem is I can't sleep at all with the crazy pain, so this morning at 2am I was Googling other stuff and found TENS machines. I'd never heard of them, but they send electrical shocks through the muscles to do a deep muscle something, and well it's supposed to help.

Bought this bad boy at Walgreens earlier today, and after a 15 minute session on my elbow and 15 minutes on my lower arm it feel so much better! It still hurts, but not like it did before,... more »

Bought this bad boy at Walgreens earlier today, and after a 15 minute session on my elbow and 15 minutes on my lower arm it feel so much better! It still hurts, but not like it did before, more of a dull ache now then the sharp pain before. It's been about an hour and the pain is slowly growing, but hey if it'll get it down to to where I can at least get some sleep for an hour or two it's worth the $50.

Anyone used one of these or similar? I don't often have body pains and aches, but given I just passed the 40 mark on the odometer last year I'm afraid I'll start needing stuff like this more often. So yay for technology :)
