I've known about the Nest thermostat for awhile now but it never occurred to me it would be the perfect gift. They market it from an energy savings angle, and stuff like that doesn't interest me. My mom lives in Miami so I doubt the Nest would be much of an energy saving thing. During most of the year, especially in the summer the air conditioning is on all day. But to be honest, I didn’t really care... It looks beautiful and it’s connected to the internet, the cool factor does it.
I sent the Nest website to my Mom for the “OK” and she was amazed.
On the Nest website they have a guide tool. It walks you through the process of figuring out if you a/c is compatible with Nest. You can also email them pictures of your thermostat and they can figure it out for you.
Since the Nest is so nice, I wanted the wall to look perfect. When I removed the old thermostat I plastered, sanded and painted the wall (Home Depot color match paint is a lifesaver). It took hours to get the wall ready and was the longest and most annoying part. Installing the Nest took literally like 5 mins.
How to cut your nails in space
He might be the next Vice President of the United States and all people care about is his chest??? No wonder people vote for Obama. Fucking clueless idiots
The most popular seaches for
is... this, really?
Your rights come from God.
It's the Government’s job to protect your rights and nothing else.
The people grant rights to the Government.
The right to govern, is granted by the people.
The right to tax, is granted by the people.
When the Government thinks it has rights to offer us, destruction follows.
Everything the Government has, is taken from the people.
If the Government starts offering 'rights' it will distroy
everything it touches.
Social Security is at verge of going bankrupt
The Government thinks everyone has the right to retire.
They pass laws and tax you Social Security. They back
the funds but spend all the money.
The housing collapse
The Government thinks everyone has the right to own
a home. They pass laws so everyone qualifies for a home
loan. They back the loans but people cant afford the
loans and don’t pay.
The looming student loan bubble is ready to pop
The Government thinks everyone has the right to an
education. They pass laws so everyone can qualify for
student loans. They back the loans but people cant afford
the loans and don’t pay.
Health insurance – to be decided
The Government thinks it's everyone’s right to have health
insurance so they tax you and force insurance companies
to cover everyone…
Is the health insurance industry being setup for collapse?
If you want more freedoms and more rights,
look to God, not Government.

Earlier this week, Wired published a story about GitHub, the “version control” site that’s taking the internet by storm. But it was more than just a story. It was an experiment in version control. In addition to publishing our GitHub story on Wired, we published our GitHub story on GitHub
GitHub was originally designed for software developers. It lets programmers upload code and share it with other developers. It keeps track of who made what changes where. And it helps merge all those changes together. It “controls” the various versions of an open source software project.
But nowadays, it’s also being used to oversee stuff outside the programming world, including DNA data and Senate bills that may turn into laws and all sorts of other stuff you can put into a text file, such as, well, a Wired article.
At Wired offices, you hear the question over and over again as we work on stories like the one you’re reading now: “Are you out of the story? I want to go in.” We have a version control problem. We publish Wired.com on WordPress. It’s a decent publishing tool, but when two people change a story at the same time, one of them doesn’t get her changes onto the final story.
