    iPhone 6 Plus Bending

    The new iPhone 6 Plus is out, and the latest rumor (which turns out to be true) is the iPhone 6 Plus bends. Two kids decided to prove it. Doing criminal damage, the two kids went out to an Apple store and recorded themselves actually bending an iPhone. Originally, they posted this to get some buzz on YouTube.

    At age 15, they decided to do this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9U-NmsgCO8 (Strong language warning)

    Drupal 8 – How to get Drush to run on a Linux distro

    Now that Drush has removed support for Pear, and running the drush.php manually is currently not working, you are “forced” to use Composer.

    If you don’t follow this way, you will get an error like:
    Unable to load autoload.php. Drush now requires Composer in order to install its depedencies and autoload classes. Please see README.md

    If you do not currently have composer installed you will need to download and install it, see https://getcomposer.org/doc/00-intro.md for instructions.

    Labor Day

    Labor Day was first recognized as a federal holiday in 1894. When the labor movement had started in earnest in the 1870s, Frederick Douglass had written about its "folly, tyranny, and wickedness," since many unions accepted white members only. Not to be deterred, many black tradesmen and workingmen organized their own unions, such as this group of Jacksonville bricklayers pictured around 1899.

    CPU Cooler

    Okay, so normally we would suggest having a decent CPU cooler for any project you might be building. Adequate heat removal is key to the longevity of your system, be it a little desktop for basic functions, a gaming machine, or in our case a server. We are in the process of building a new server to upgrade our technology at the home office, and the CPU cooler is absolutely amazing. On the plus side, the case barely closes, so it fits. BUT, so many times people forget to check the dimensions of the CPU cooler, and just assume it will fit in their case.

    Robin Williams

    It was with great sorrow we heard about the passing of Robin Williams yesterday. A man of great character, talent, and charisma has been prematurely taken from our world. While we know that there was a big battle with depression, the need for more understanding about this mental illness, among others, is clearly needed. With better understanding comes better ways to manage. With better ways to manage comes the avoidance of a loss of life. Nobody should die because of a mental illness, with support and kindness of others.
