It’ll Happen To You

Sunday, June 8, 2014

Relevant to more than one conversation I’ve had or seen this past week, as well as more than one ‘news’ item I’ve seen shared via social networks.

Now, if you’ll excuse me I have some clouds to yell at.

Reality in Fun Packaging: Pt 1

Friday, June 6, 2014

We constantly hear people shooting off about this or that economic-sounding statistic, almost always for political purposes. They’re almost always proving they fail to understand economics at all because their claim is the opposite of reality. A quick breakdown of the article:

1. China isn’t about to own the USA. This is the most common bullshit statement that is wrong in every way possible.

2. The state of manufacturing in America is not what you think. Manufacturing isn’t the same as 50 years ago, but it hasn’t gone away.

3. No, immigrants (documented or undocumented) actually contribute more to the country than they get back (for a number of reasons, not all of them good).

4. Deficits are not the same as debt, and they aren’t always bad.

5. The holy anger about the debt is entirely a tactic used by politicians to make you angry at their opponents, and not the huge problem that gets described by pundits.

Just One of Those Days

Tuesday, June 3, 2014

Do you remember that feeling you’d get when you found a problem with your mobile device on the system level, started digging down into it to troubleshoot and recover from the problem it caused, spending hours and finally finding it?

I feel like I just wasted five and a half hours of my life on a problem I’ll probably never see again. The only redeeming factor was the chance to muck around in fastboot to fix the system partition. (note to self: update your freaking SDK more often, idiot)

Video Lesson on Running Cables

Tuesday, May 27, 2014

Practical brilliance often trumps fancy novelty. I’ve seen a lot of ways to get a trace from the bottom (including measuring and guessing), and this seems both easier and cheaper than a lot of the fancy methods.

Original Post from Chris Pick:

Here is a video I put together detailing how to locate the area below you without cutting holes in walls. (basically minimizing drywall repairs). Basically the tip is to use a piece of cheap hardware in a way it was never really intended, but works wonders.

PSA: Please becareful, turn off electric/water etc.. You don’t want to hit an electric / water / sewer with this, so make sure you know there is nothing below you.

Thanks to the 7 people who requested more info:
