I now know it is bad to prepopulate hidden input fields because the browser will cache those values and ruin my updating. I never understood why people never seemed to do that. They always loaded up a blank page and then populated it. Now I know. I've been suffering with my DIY rss reading failing after adding some features and that was the cause.

Awesome Post from Mankiw. This to me explains a lot about people and the difficulty in getting people to understand the magnitude of an issue.

I set-up a Redis server to validate logins and that resulted in a major security breech. Turns out I should've used a Radius server.

Apparently, the blended metal bullets exist, but are not nearly as effective as the episode showed.

If you buy one of these, I'd recommend performing the following fix. Unscrew the bolt holding the vent before it is used too much and sticks. Then put a thin stainless steel washer to separate the disc from the hole in top. Mine got stuck because build-up and I had to drill out the bolt.

I was curious about Longmire mysteries and came across a book on music. This actually looks tempting for me.

Been curious how people do this type of thing, turns out there is a tool for it.

When they say 20% accuracy, they mean it. I had assumed a bell curve, yet it never varied. So as near as I can figure when it is 100, that means 80 and explains difficulty breathing and falling asleep midday. Also I suspect a cortisol withdrawal as explaining my problems in light of this new info. Lastly, blood pressure appears to bounce around for about 2 weeks after the stressor is removed.

Had a weird thing happen on Saturday. I ate something and actually got energy. Narrowed the pool of suspects to mushrooms, broccoli and pork. Problem is, that I'm under such medical scrutiny that I won't be able to determine the real problem for awhile. Doctor threatens to put me on blood pressure meds at the drop of a hat and the diabetes nurse noticed that I was prescribed another sugar lowering med, not that I need it now. So withdrawal from the problem causes blood pressure to go up and sugar to go down. Reintroduction causes blood sugar to go up. So in November I must've switched vegetable blends briefly when I excluded eggs, to become energetic. Then the doctor put me on stomach curdling meds and I was unable to notice anything for 4 months. Anyway, the current list of verboten foods is: gluten, eggs, broccoli(?), mushrooms(?) and pork(?) until further notice.

How do I say this nicely. This seems to confirm the anecdotal evidence.

Watching this on Hulu about a rescue. The kid was wearing a mask with a built in battery powered filtration system that appears to have saved his life. Only thing different I'd have done, is wear a harness instead of a rope and maybe a lanyard. Lastly, I wonder if the quicksand maneuver would have prevented this. He said it was like quicksand, when he freed the shelf of rotten corn.

My wife loves it, but I can't stand it. It is so rare that she will watch a movie to completion. BBC stuff seems to be delayed longer and longer, but crap shows like MASH aren't with more seasons just added. I'd cancel now that I finally find out you can't get access to the API.

That's not the worst part. My Google searches get a bit odd while I'm looking up the case they are talking about. They go from pipe bombs to Quaaludes. Hopefully, the ATF and the FDA don't show-up on my doorstep tomorrow.

It came with limited compartments for small items, so I bought one of these for extra space. It works pretty well, just wish the holes were smaller.

I love the tracking equipment for illegal broadcasts in the USSR.

Looks like NASA is working on a way to channel the sonic boom upwards.
