Kua 'Aina (Goodge Street)
Caribbean vibe restaurant. They have happy hour themed cocktails, and delicious veggie sandwiches. It's something a little unique as I don't often find places that have Caribbean food. Think hula skirts and palm beaches. It's quite big yet small -as in the tables are close together. The staff are all super friendly too, there is another branch in London. Read more...
International pasta chain, where you queue and order your pasta or pizza which is made in front of you to order. This one is in what I think is Miami's financial district. That is, there wasn't much else in the area as they seem to occupy what is best described as the ground floor of a financial companies sky scraper. It's reminds me of London's Canary Wharf. The streets in the neighbourhood were virtually empty, and it seems they were all in Vapiano as it was the only place with any human activity in the area. The service here was the fastest of any Vapiano I have been to and the meal was perfect, just how I wanted it. Read more...
GitHub vs BitBucket
GitHub charges per repository, while BitBucket charges by contributor.
Use BitBucket if:
- You only work individually or in a small team (5 people or less).
- You wish to have private repositories.
- You wish to work with a large number of repositories.
Use GitHub if:
- You project is open source.
- You only have a small number of private repositories.
- Many people will work on a repository (5 people or above).
As for the rest of the differentiation features, they're both pretty similar, with the one exception that GitHub is universally recognised and there are many tools, such as CI services, that can plug straight into GitHub by using your account; although BitBucket is gaining notability in this regard.
I do wonder about the long term viability of BitBucket offering private repositories, as surely the cost of doing so will increase over time - with storage costs in particular. Then again, the same applies for GitHub and its generous hosting of public repos.
At the end of the day you get what you pay for, there are a handful of good reliable paid for services that can offer the best of both worlds - such as Codebase HQ which has git and project hosting for a small monthly fee, they charge by tiers of storage space used, users and number of projects - but each project can have unlimited repositories!

Thirdparties - the biggest bottleneck to IPv6 adoption.
The Internet is changing. The problem is, some parts change faster than others. If you need a stack supporting IPv6 - you might struggle. Popular providers are still lagging in their offerings, which means picking a provider with lower expertise might be needed, or even bringing hosting in house. Here we look at the major bottlenecks with IPv6 adoption. Read more...
