First time on a stand up paddle board and we had a great time. Even the kids got the hang of it!

If you took the #IceBucketChallenge did you also donate?
I realise the stated purpose of the challenge is to raise money and raise awareness. It didn’t start out specifically for ALS, but at this point they’re the defacto owners.
It has certainly raised awareness because every time I turn around someone is dumping a bucket of ice-water over their head.

It killed a bit of time waiting for the bus this morning. And I got to play with XnRetro a bit more.
Samsung Galaxy Photo Editor Update

Web Apps that can Replace Native Apps on your Smart Phone or Tablet
I’ve recently read about a few people trying to replace many of the apps on their phone with a web app or web site. So it got me thinking about what I could do on my phone and tablet.
There’s a few advantages to using browser-based web apps instead of native apps.1. Most important is improved security and privacy
2. It reduces the pollution in your system
3. And they take less space
