Hello, Monday (Wednesday — actually, Friday)!
As we all get ready for the new year, and then again 90 days from now, and in yet another three months, ad nauseum — the computer system will ask you to pick a new password to access the information you so desperately need right now.
Although this may seem like a burden — and by all means, maybe it is — you should take a couple of minutes to take care of the computer’s request to change your password and pick a secure code that is hard to decipher and easy for you to remember.
There are applications available that will remember passwords for you (like LastPass or KeePass) although some of us (not me) have survived for decades writing down passwords on small pieces of paper and storing them somewhere “safe.”
When considering your new password, be sure to read the system’s requirements for new passwords, choose a strong passwordbased on those specifications, and make sure your new entry key is not one of 2015’s worst passwords. Here’s the top 10:
My wife was out on retreat this past week with her quilt group and when it came time to take a group photo, they didn’t have access to another person that might take their picture. But we were able to get this portrait:
… from these two originals:
Scarlett Johansson tripped and fell on the street. Here’s an animated .gif of the original video:

What does it mean when my phone loads my site dozens of times faster than my desktop (floortop) machine?
This salad has it all (well, except maybe pork products)! The peppercorn dressing hit the spot, and the turkey/brisket slices were enough for lunch. Super fresh salad ingredients.
Stanford is currently offering in iTunes U their Winter 2013 iPhone Application Development class. The course is currently five or six lectures in, but since folks not enrolled at Stanford can only audit the class, I think anyone can just jump right in.
And get lost.
The instructor runs through a list of prerequisites that included three classes offered at the university: CS106, CS107 and CS108. iTunes U may have notes from the classes, but not all the videos. The first two classes, however, have archived lectures on YouTube, however they may not be in synch with the video content. The class site mentioned in the CS1o6 course is synched with the current semester.
The CS193P class dives right into Objective C and makes all kinds of assumptions on the students, like they are familiar with programming and are already comfortable coding programs.
Had not been to the Arlington Texas Land and Cattle in a few months — not since it moved to its new location anyway. No longer will patrons have to fight over limited parking real estate with On the Border customers as the new location has plenty of space for itself and even overflow from neighboring El Fenix.
