Scott Dawson7,448It's been a while since I've shared a Google+ Showcase Circle so I figured I'd make another one up to share with all of you.This Circle is made up of  mostly new people that I've circled in the past week on Google+.To help build some engagement on Google+ & this Circle I ask that everyone who is in this circle (and anyone else that is reading this) share a recent post of their own, or one you've shared in the last week by adding a link to it in the comments.Doing so, will give us all an opportunity to connect and share with other active Google+ users.I look forward to checking out your favorite posts that I might have missed!There's no requirement to share, +1 or Comment but it's always appreciated if you do.Have a great weekend everyone!2014-03-15 15:13:23501352938CC G+

Reminder - I'm still looking for homes for a couple of computers.  I believe I've found homes for two, but there's one more waiting and yet another that needs a free/cheap LCD monitor to go with it.

So if you know someone that could really use a gently-used but fully functional PC please PM me.  There are no strings attached whatsoever - no money, sharing, circling, even public acknowledgement required - though I'd never say no to a few bucks to fund future builds.  

Edit: there is one catch.  Due to shipping costs and export laws I can only do this within the continental US

Also, if you've got an older (minimum SVGA) LCD monitor and/or reparable less-than-five-year-old desktops or laptops, please PM me as well.

Hi +Isabelle Cardinal :)

2014-04-23 03:21:04 (0 comments, 1 reshares, 6 +1s)

I posted this the other day, but the couple of people that I talked to I made other arrangements with.

I'm looking for a good home for a not-so-fancy but functional Win7 computer.  It's a desktop and will come as ready to use as I can make it.  Monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc all included.  I might even be able to drum up a wireless network card but I can't guarantee it without testing.

Preferably this needs to go to a home where someone can really use it - no computer, dinosaur computer and can't afford and upgrade, etc.  If you or you know someone that could benefit from that, please PM me here or at olav@follandfamily.com. Please don't post other than questions here as I won't let anyone embarrass themselves.

I'd like to get this out of the house this weekend, as Kat isn't so thrilled with the mass of hulks that seem to be amassing inour ... more »

Update on my computer thingy -

In retrospect it was dumb of me to think that giving away two partial tower PCs was a good idea.  So, I'm going to combine them into one functional PC and save the other one until I can get all the parts together.  Also, some things have happened that have made me able to make other arrangements for the original candidates.

Dear +Costco, as I make what is probably the last batch of Soup Season, it struck me that I haven't seen the staples of BBQ season in your local store yet.  I mean, meat, yes, but I can't even begin to tell you how many requests I'm going to get for macaroni salad I'll get over the next few months (and that includes people that don't like macaroni salad).  

So, I'd really. really appreciate it if you brought back the gallon-size Hellmans.  Adding 5-lb bags of elbow macaroni would be nice too, but I don't want to push things.

I'll even share the recipe with you if it helps...

Weird note on global history.

How come the Germans never invaded Switzerland in WWII?  I mean, they had them surrounded on the East, North and West (once they took over France) and had Mussolini on the South... but they never went there.  Was it the yodeling?

Soup.  It's what's for dinner, before the soup season ends.  We're likely going to be eating this all week, but it's sooooo worth it.

Update on my computer thingy -

In retrospect it was dumb of me to think that giving away two partial tower PCs was a good idea.  So, I'm going to combine them into one functional PC and save the other one until I can get all the parts together.  Also, some things have happened that have made me able to make other arrangements for the original candidates.

I made a comment earlier, and almost immediately realized what it really means to me.

To my friends, colleagues, and otherwise who post, comment, and otherwise interact with me, I really thank you. You make life so much easier for a guy that can't get out of the house much.

To you that I haven't, or have barely interacted with, thank you so much for inviting me into you home. Even though yo6nmay have nothing to say (though I wish you would), allowing me to be a part of your experience here is pretty humbling :/

'Kayso:

I have two computers I'd like to find homes for.  Both are contemporary enough to handle a modern operating system.  One has (legal) Windows 7 but no monitor.  The other has a monitor but no OS.  In either case, someone would have to spend around $100 to get it fully operational.  I might have a wireless network card or two, but I haven't tested them.  Also, for the computer with no OS I can load Ubuntu and make sure it's functional before I pack it up which would make it effectively free..

Ideally, these would go to homes where they're really needed.   I know a lot of people know someone who doesn't have a computer, or is limping along with a dinosaur.  That would be my first preference.  Second preference, I'm a sucker for kids being able to have their own homework machine, so everyone doesn't have to share one PC but the familycan'... more »

I've updated my katsu recipe with a very simple, but effective, home-made sauce.  

I used pork in the recipe (tonkatsu), but chicken and especially beef work very well too.

Interesting factoid that isn't interesting to anyone that doesn't play golf in Sacramento:
 
The Alastair McKenzie course at Haggin Oaks is so named because it was designed by him.  He's also one of the two people that designed Augusta, which explains why that course is such a biatch.

IOW I wouldn't even want to try and play Augusta until I could make a decent show at McKenzie.

I've been soaking in as much as I can about 'Heartbleed' over the past couple of days, particularly since it (1) affects everybody and (2) I have servers that are affected by it.

So, here's my thoughts:
This is a huge deal.  We're talking about 74% of the internet uses OpenSSL for secure connections.  And, website owners can only know if they're vulnerable by looking at what version of OpenSSL they're running - which is no guarantee that they've been attacked, only that they're vulnerable.

Now, different companies upgrade their software at different rates.  A lot of that 74% are running code that precedes the two-year-old version of SSL that opened the bug.  So literally, a lot of websites are safe because they're slackers.  (actually for a major company upgrading anything is a huge deal so they may not unless they haveto).... more »

I'm going to reserve the phrase "game-changer" until I see it in wide-spread NAVY use, and if and how it trickles down to the consumer market.

The basic idea (as I understand it, putting together random things I know) is that sea water has a lot of carbon in it - dead things, microorganisms, absorption from the atmosphere, etc.  So what they've figured out how to do, is by an unspecified process extract both carbon and hydrogen from that sea water at a relatively low energy cost - current methods involve a f*ckload of electricity and just separate the H from the O - and then using an unspecified catalyst (chemical compound, enzyme, whatever) convert that into relatively pure hydrocarbons.

At the end of the day, what does that mean?  Gas.  Gas, whether in a boat, or a plane, or a car, is hydrocarbons - the petroleum we use today is a mix of hydrocarbons andim... more »

I know a lot of y'all are familiar with the SCAR Project (http://www.thescarproject.org/) and the work David Jay has done to portray the humanity of breast cancer survivors - which is the ultimate goal: These are people and deserve to be treated as such.

Anyway, David has the opportunity to bring his works to Santa Monica (CA) and do a show there, but could use some help.  He's $8K short of his goal, but if we all pitch in a little, and spread the word, I know we can meet that in a couple of days.  You've seen the shared posts, and I know many have been deeply touched by them.  Consider this a chance to make it real for those that haven't.  I know I wish I could make it down for the opening.

So give what you can, and tell your friends, please.
