Syncing to the cloud in a developing country

Wondering if anyone has any advice on the best way to design an app that efficiently sends data to an online DB in a country where folks conserve their data carefully on 10 MB/day SIM cards. Specifically I have a question about Firebase, but any relevant stories or experiences welcome. [more inside]

A window to another world? XBox one to iMac Skype chat - will it work?

I'm trying to set up a system so that I can hang out with a family member from my iMac and their living room TV. I'm open to any system, but it seems like the easiest thing might be to get them an Xbox One + Kinect and do the chat via Skype. Will that work? Is there another way that would be easier/better?

What trails in Jefferson Co, CO are comfortably rideable on cross bikes?

That's pretty much the question. We'll be in Jefferson County, Colorado, USA, towards the end of July. We don't have mountain bikes (this was going to be their debut weekend, but alas), but are active dirt/gravel/light trail/B road cyclists, on bikes with 40mm tires and drop bars (gravel grinders). What trails would/could you recommend? [more inside]

Where/How to Watch Aranyélet Season 2 in the US?

I finished Season 1 a couple months ago with the help of tubitv but I can't find a source for Season 2 (with English subtitles, which I need) anywhere. I would gladly pay for it, but again, can't find a source (I tried signing up for HBO Nordic, but they wouldn't take my credit card). Anyone have any tips? Thanks!

Database or book of post-nominal letters from certifications?

I recently completed a professional certification process and picked up some post-nominal letters without realizing that would be an outcome of the process. It was fun to learn more about the field and get such a visible result, and now that I have those letters after my name, I am starting to wonder what other letters are available for any of the different areas in which I work (completely separate / discrete businesses). Is there a database for this? A book? Books? The areas in question are web development & devops, full-stack webmastering, and...life coaching. I currently hold certifications & memberships in all these areas, but not letters so much. Thanks!

What's the simplest 360 streaming setup that allows an audio input?

I'd like to set up a 360 streaming system from my recording studio. We'd likely be using Periscope or Facebook Live. Ideally, we'd have a camera in the middle of the room providing video, and an analog audio feed from our mixing board providing the audio. What's the simplest setup (especially on the software side) that could achieve this? What's the closest we can get to an engineer just having to log in to Periscope or Facebook and press "go"?

Off leash hiking for dogs in northern New Jersey

I'd love some suggestions for places where I can (legally) let my dog hike off leash in NJ. Northern NJ preferred, but if you've got a great spot in the region (NJ, NY, PA), would love those suggestions as well. Not really looking for any dog park recs unless they are spaces that are 5 acres+ in size for dogs of all sizes. I have a local dog park that is an acre, so would really prefer to hear about hiking areas. Thanks!

Is there a healthcare expense app for Mac?

I'm looking for a program that will keep track of medical expenses, deductibles (and other insurance details), FSA claims, payments, etc. This seems like something many people would want, but I am not able to find anything. A couple of online platforms seem to have been overtaken by service providers who cater to the billing systems of medical providers (CakeHealth and Simplee) and others like Quicken's healthcare software are no longer supported. Am I doomed to building my own spreadsheet?

Custom poker games for iOS?

Years ago I loved playing iPoker on my Mac, mainly because it didn't limit you to Hold ’Em poker and let you make up your own poker variants, which is a ton of fun if you’ve never tried it. Alas, as you can tell from reading the link, that software is long dead, and almost all of my gaming is done on iOS these days anyway… [more inside]

Sites like The Quietus, but for visual art and poetry

Thanks to this recent post on the Blue about Ryuichi Sakamoto, I have just become aware of The Quietus, which is opening my ears to a lot of great new music. Can you recommend sites with a similar sensibility that are focused on poetry or the visual arts rather than music? Sites in English, French, German or Spanish all welcome.

Why can't I access all episodes in my TuneIn app?

I use Android. I paid for a premium version of TuneIn, the podcast app. Now I'm trying to access the first season of Coffee Break French and can't access anything but the most recent episodes. Is there a way to access *all* episodes? BeyondPod, which is free, does this with no problem, so I know that these episodes do exist. Is there something I'm missing in TuneIn?

Looking for a series of performances?

Sometime between 2009 and 2014 there was a series of performances by emerging artists including Grimes, Lumineers, and Of Monsters and Men. It was shot in what looked like an abandoned factory and was shown on MTV and VH1. Occasionally it was titled "ahead of the curve" sessions and sometimes it had a different name. over time mistakes in the performances were edited to be more "correct." I'd love to be able to purchase a collection of all the performances, but all of my searches have come up nothing. Help?
