There’s like a gazillion classes going on at this mega-learning/hacking/building event!
Join me at Workshop Weekend!
I’m teaching “BeetleBots Zooming Everywhere!” on Sunday, July 1st at 10:00am.
Workshop Weekend is a weekend-long event of short, 1 to 3 hour long workshops in subjects from exploring 3D modeling and printing, building a mini robot, and creating your own jewelry to making ricotta cheese and discovering DNA modeling! It’s a festival of learning with more than 40 hands-on workshops to choose from, all taking place June 30 and July 1 in downtown Oakland — pay $30 and take as many workshops as you like! The weekend is a family-friendly gathering for kids and adults alike, bringing together arts, crafts and engineering workshops, all taught by the bay area’s best makers.

Here’s a partial list of the workshops being offered:
I’ve seen comments online and and did a little research on laser nail fungus treatments. I think a reasonable assessment would be:
* expensive ($1-2k+) (though a friend told me their friend had both feet done for $275)
* 25% success rate, a bit lower success rate than prescription oral drugs. Many report a clearing in the first year and then a return after 2 years or so.
* easy treatment. visit the foot doctor 1-4 times for short treatments over the course of a few months.
Does that sound correct? Please write in the comments below!
I’ve been fiddling with my Google Chrome startup screen. The Speed Dial extension for Chrome is good. It looks similar to the standard Google New Tab screen but it lets you customize it. (It drives me crazy that you don’t know with certainty what links will be on the New Tab page).
But I got the sense that Speed Dial was slowing my computer down just a tiny bit. So I switched to a more streamlined startup screen.
I open 4 tabs:
Blank Chrome page
There are 3 ways I know of to create a blank tab in Chrome. I’m still not sure which I like the most:
You can set the startup page to be about:blank, but the text will highlight incorrectly when you start typing in the omnibox.
Or you can open a Chrome New Tab page with: chrome://newtab/
