An interesting post on /r/Ubuntu today: "Update your "Eject" package. Eject could be made to run programs as an administrator."
This is the story all about how
my life got flipped turned upside-down I forgot basic algebra and instead used my 2.2 GHz processor to brute force an answer to a question raised by Facebook. Yay technology!

I once had the task of prepping an HTML newsletter every week. We had a general template, and the weekly content was prepped by a designer in Fireworks, with links and everything already sorted. My task was to insert the generated HTML table into the template and update all the links to append Google tracking code. This used to take me "half of forever" every week, especially since lots of times there would be errors in the newsletter that necessitated starting my whole process from scratch every time. I think it was Fridays.

In every company, there are routine procedures that you have to go through. Opening, closing, inventory, etc. all procedures that don't change, but still need to happen. What most people don't realize is that usually technology can make this process a lot easier. Today's article is about how I used already-existing technology in a business to dramatically speed up their end-of-day process, saving on labor, and keeping people on the sales floor.
I started bowling in middle school. Not the most popular sport for a young man to get into, but it was one that I could play with my old man. We joined a "Generation Gap" league and I started bowling every week. I slowly got better, got my technique down, got my own ball and shoes. I've been bowling sporadically ever since. I got another ball when I was 16 or 17: a Brunswick Fury. Fantastic ball; loved it, lost it two years ago.
