And sometimes it re-detects your location once every 5 minutes without you moving. I tested this before by making my phone text me when I "arrived home." I was seeing if it would be worthwhile to move forward on. It wasn't. Tasker is always checking your location because it wants to run an exit task when you leave that area. Location detection is all from the phone, tasker just asks where you are. Edit: As I typed this I though "Tasker should let me set those variables on the fly", and sure enough they do!

Python For Microsoft Excel Company IronSpread Comes Out of Beta, Changes Name To DataNitro Y Combinator Winter Summer 2012 graduate Data Nitro (formerly known as IronSpread) has a simple proposition: it enables you to to use the popular programming language Python in Microsoft Excel. The plugin is free for individual non-commercial and enterprises will pay for the privilege. So far it’s only available for the Excel 2007 and 2010 for Windows. The company has no plans to support OSX. Although power users have long been able to use Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) to script Excel, and Microsoft is expected to support JavaScript in Office, Python is a strong addition to the Excel jock’s toolkit. Python is a top — if not the top — language with programmers by a number of metrics. The good news: You can still use all your old VBA scripts, Data Nitro won’t stop them from working. Other tools for working with Python code in Excel include Pyvot and Pyxll (hat tip to the Hacker News community for the links).

Online Audio Converter (MP3, WAV, Ogg, WMA, M4A, AAC) – media.io How to Make Limited-Time App Deals Last Forever At least in the case of the Starbucks free apps, the developers get paid. (At least that's how I understand it. I know, it gets in the way of consumer-bashing, but you can have your fill of that on the Consumerist.) You know the developers still get paid in these sales, right? I'm confused by your argument. Also, why do you think the developers do not get paid? Except, of course, the Amazon AppStore which does not pay their free app of the day developer and is generally extremely shitty to developers. Either that or I am, but you definitely aren't padding Apple's pockets any more either way. You would help him or her more by downloading this the free day.

The Skeptics Society & Skeptic magazine Surprising Android Tips - Cool Things Your Android Phone Can Do - Tom's Guide Did you know your Android phone can double as a security cam, read USB drives and even run a Web server. These neat tricks are bound to surprise. When Benjamin Franklin wrote that “those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety,” he was clearly referring to smartphone operating systems. While Apple’s iOS and Microsoft’s Windows Phone prevent developers and users from having too much access to core functions in the name of security, Android gives you the freedom to perform just about any task you can imagine. Most Android aficionados already know that you can “root” (AKA gain administrative access to) your device, change the look and feel of your phone with a custom launcher and sideload apps from anywhere you want. Run a Web Server Developers can use an Android Web server to test out their code and then show it to clients or stakeholders in the office. More: How to Run a Web Server on Your Android Device

Beginnen met HTML + CSS Deze korte cursus is bedoeld voor mensen die willen beginnen met CSS en nog nooit een CSS-stylesheet hebben geschreven. Hij legt niet veel uit over CSS. Hij legt alleen uit hoe je een HTML-bestand en een CSS-bstand maakt en ze samen laat werken. Daarna kun je één van de vele andere cursusen [Engelse pagina] lezen om meer eigenschappen aan de HTML- en CSS-bestanden toe te voegen. Aan het einde van deze cursus heb je een HTML-pagina, die er zó uitziet: De uiteindelijke HTML-pagina, met kleuren en layout, alles met CSS NB. Alinea's die er uitzien zoals deze zijn optioneel. Stap 1: de HTML schrijven Ik stel voor dat je voor deze cursus alleen de allereenvoudigste hulpmiddelen gebruikt. Gebruik geen tekstverwerker, zoals Microsoft Word of OpenOffice. Stap 1 is je tekst-editor te openen (Kladblok, TextEdit, KEdit, of wat je favoriet maar is), te beginnen met een leeg venster en het volgende in te typen: <! De <body> is waar de daadwerkelijke tekst van het document komt. Stap 2: kleuren toevoegen <!

Make Your Own Chick-Fil-A Sandwiches at Home My view is that you're an idiot. Does that offend you? Not to be argumentative but: by sharing one's opinion in a public forum, one is inherently inviting others to share opinions of dissent. Stating one's views is easily one of the most offensive things one can do, especially when that opinion contains a dogmatic/kerygmatic judgment of others. In essence, just as What-his-nuts (I believe that is, in fact, his legal name) is free to share his opinions regarding the homosexual community, others are free to share their views of his fucktardedness. It is confounding to me to see people defend What-his-nuts' opinion with the "don't denigrate him for what he believes" argument (note, probably a better term for this) — of COURSE I will judge him based o his opinions and beliefs; I should. That said, I take a different tack on much of this, from a personal view, but I would argue that, just as one opinion is covered under protected speech, so is the expression of dissent to that opinion.

Just the one you install Social Fixer on. Seriously? I don't know about you, but there's no substance happening in my Facebook news feed. In your post so say to add the 'i' to make it NOT case sensitive, but TheChadd's comment says the 'i' DOES make it case sensitive. What about synced Chrome on multiple machines? Wow, this is what Lifehacker is for—making cynicism and division more convenient? Cynicism elects Republicans because old people vote more than young people.

Best Free Android Apps | Best Free Apps for Android Tablets Introduction The iPad may have been the pioneer among mass-selling consumer tablets, and its app selection certainly accelerated off the line like a V8 sportscar. But Android, over the last two years, has sped forward with equal gusto. We looked at scores of apps and picked out some of most essential ones for any new tablet. Our primary filter for each app (apart from it being essential and great): It must be free. We’ve broken down our list of the best free Android apps into five categories: Social Media, Productivity, Organization, Home & Family, and Diversions. Other categories help you make your tablet time more productive and useful, and even help other aspects of your life. Finally, Diversions is a mixed bag of apps that cross over a bunch of categories. Over the summer of 2013, Google Play hit over a million Android apps.

How I Got Over the Jogging Beginner's Hump 99% of men who run bare-chested really ought not run bare-chested. Too many components work against you: chest hair, moobishness, or other parts of you that jiggle when you run that look rock-solid when you are standing looking at yourself in the mirror. Consider what you're subjecting others to when you're a sweaty mass galloping down the street. Be aesthetically kind. And before anyone yells at me: I tell my husband, who is very handsome and an IronMan in fact (and a barefoot runner to boot), that he's not one of the 1%. All that said, there are 1%'ers out there. Hey that was me the bare-chested Adonis. :) Not a fan of the hairy chest? Either way, I ran bare chested all the time when I was in highschool, never got any funny looks that I didn't earn!
