A 25,000 square foot French food market called Le District is under construction with an opening slated for later this year. There is space for six new stand-alone restaurants, joining P.J. Clarke's, which is already open in the complex. Parenthetically, the Institute of Culinary Education (ICE) will be relocating its campus to Brookfield Place from the Flatiron District next year, bringing thousands of culinary students to the area.

But first out of the box will be a collection of some of NYC's most celebrated fast casual and street food restaurants, which will share 35,000 square feet of communal space overlooking the Hudson River.

We had a thread somewhere about DIY-ish audio setups, but I can't find it. Just wanted to note that there is now a $33 expansion board for the Raspberry Pi that will give you, amoung other I/O goodness, SPDIF audio out from the Pi: the Wolfson Audio Card.

And reading about that led me to another add on card that accomplishes the same, at about the same price: the HiFiBerry Digi.

So while either of these will double the price of the Pi, it's still pretty cheap in the whole scheme of things. Would love to have the time to play around with this. Someday.

It has been a while since I saw the trailer, but I'm going to have to say that August: Osage County was not nearly as funny as they made on.

The Windows XP/8.1 debacle calls to mind the Wordstar/Wordstar 2000 debacle of the mid-eighties.

Unfamiliar with Wordstar? Exactly my point.

Wordstar ruled the word processor market in the early personal computer market. They weren't just the leader, they were everywhere. The UI was stupid and clunky, but people got used to it. When people in a business setting got a new personal computer, the package they got was: IBM PC (or equivalent); DOS (from IBM, Microsoft or Digital Research), Lotus 1-2-3, a Herculese graphics card, an Epson printer, and Wordstar. Interesting list. How many of those companies are still relevant in the personal computer market?

Wordstar decided to dump their product and move on to new technology: Wordstar 2000. This was not an evolution. New UI. New, incompatible file formats. And get this -- it's really better if you just get a whole new, more powerful computer to run this software.

Microsoft, unlike Wordstar, will survive, but they have thoroughly fucked themselves. Windows 8.1 is the Wordstar 2000 of the twenty-teens.

Adding: "Well, if I got to switch to something unfamiliar and incompatible anyway, what are the other alternatives?" That's the essense of the self-destruction of this sort of move.
