I’ve been a udemy user for several years. Their low-cost instructional courses (usually on sale for $10-15 each) have been great for my piqued interest in some side topics around mobile and game development, learning some new web development skills or for pure financial support of teachers I love including Tim Buchalka and Zed Shaw. Over the years I’ve signed up and paid for 17 courses, almost all of which are programming-related:
I’d be curious to know if Alton Brown has any opinions on this “cook a 14lb turkey in only one hour” method? Anyone brave enough to try this? http://larueblog.com/cook-perfect-holiday-turkey-one-hour/ This is not a joke, nor an exaggeration. Indeed, it is a promise. A gift to you, from the bottom of my heart. Because you CAN cook the perfect turkey in one hour, and transform your Thanksgiving experience forever. Believe me, you and your guests deserve it.
In retrospect, maybe getting a “paper white” display wasn’t such a good thing.

I live in an apartment with a balcony and looking for storage solutions to get my bike up out of the way. I’ve used a vertical bike hook at my office (we have a whole rack of them for people who bike in), which seems to work great, but I’m wondering if long term that causes any rim damage, or if I should consider something else given the front fork and the disc brakes on the Timberline 1.
Sounds like Google is going to start cracking down on third-party ads in Android notifications (yay!) "Apps and their ads must not display advertisements through system level notifications on the user's device, unless the notifications derive from an integral feature provided by the installed app. (e.g., an airline app that notifies users of special deals, or a game that notifies users of in-game promotions)." So if your game wants to promote something within the game, via a notification, while still annoying, is fine.
During scrum this morning, my phone kept buzzing that I'd been mentioned on Twitter. Over and over. Imagine my surprise when a simple exchange last night -- asking if anyone had an affiliate link I could follow for a registrar, and replying to two colleagues (@timsegraves and @travisberry) who recommended name.com, that my simple tweet saying "thanks, I'll check out @namedotcom"Â -- would turn into this unexpected summary of me and my skills from name.
I helped maintain Mitch’s web site, mitchhedberg.net for several years after his passing. I only agreed to payment once for a big project, because I was happy to help out as a fan. Memories of Mitch: I only saw him live in Ontario, CA about a year before he died and wish I’d gotten to meet him in person. I still keep in contact with his wife Lynn Shawcroft from time to time.
Here’s a flash movie/documentary that some guys made about the little town I grew up in, Pine Point, NWT. The town no longer exists, and this is a really great flashback. http://interactive.nfb.ca/#/pinepoint Having looked through it several times, I’ve found pictures of my dad, my sister and I, and several friends. The Hyrniuk brothers who were part of the project were my next door neighbors. Here’s Richard Cloutier’s site, which he designs and maintains using voice recognition software: http://pinepointrevisited.
