I was sort of excited about this because I've been searching for terminal based applications to run in Linux, but then I saw that they built it to run in the X environment and that it is GTK 2 or GTK 3 dependent.  Really, it makes no sense to me to make a program that is inspired by an old MS-DOS app and then make it dependent on a relatively bloated gui interface.  I hope the developer(s) build a terminal based version in the future.

All these things really need a real time paper trail that have a viewing window so that the voter could see his/her vote was tallied the right way.  Anything short of that is just wishful thinking.

I remember there was a guy who publicly complained about the delay in one of the models and Musk gave the guy a lifetime ban from buying any Tesla products.

It is like that scene in Being John Malkovich where he is looking through his own head.

>triglycerides increase

My wife's family tends to run high on triglycerides and LDL cholesterol.  Recently she had a blood panel and her numbers were higher than they should have been.  The doctor gave her the usual advice  which was cut out the fried food and exercise more -- not very permanent to her because she hardly ever eats fried food and she gets plenty of daily activity.

I convinced her to try modifying her diet to bestially eat the way I've been eating for years.  She cut out grain and sugar.  She didn't go very high fat, but wasn't avoiding it ether.  She basically eat meat, veggies and fruit.  After just a month her triglycerides and LDL were much improved.  To be clear, this was not a ketogenic diet, but rather a diet void of grain and sugar; basically a diet free of any refined food*.

* she would have a small amount of dark chocolate as a treat at the end of the day, so not entirely free

Marketing / Re: AMZ Prime Day is getting more press that Black Friday

As a netizen I find the concept of prime day annoying at best.  As someone who sells on Amaon, but doesn't serve any special prime day offerings it gives me a small boost in sales.

I read that the servers crashed today at 3:00PM EST time.

4/4 gym sessions this week.  My wife has been traveling with her mom, so I've been on double duty with the kids -- so lots of running around and doing all the chores.

Consumer prices rose 2.9 percent in the year since June 2017, a five-year high, while hourly wages fell 0.2 percent in the same period, according to federal data released Thursday.

So, a net burden of 3.1% for the wage employee.  It will be interesting to see how things shake out in the next 6 months.

For me to apparently forget about it!  Pretty amazing though that its as high quality as it is and that you could tap right into it with API access.

Looks like Pokémon Go used it.

This is making me want to get into HAM:

Sounds like he had a long term struggle with a fatal illness.

I think the keto/Paleo/natural food movement might throw a wrench in that meat index.
