"Thunderbolt 3 relies on the USB-C physical connector and, with the appropriate adapters, supports nearly all common peripheral-connection and networking protocols, including USB 2, USB 3, FireWire, Thunderbolt 2, Ethernet, and DisplayPort, and by extension, HDMI, DVI, and VGA."

I had a bit of trouble finding the autocross event held at the Marina Airport for the BMW club (who are inclusive of other cars, which is why I went) - they didn't have signs up. Hopefully this map helps others. The entrance is right before (to the south-west) of the hangar area, to the right off Imjin Rd, just past Anzu Corp. The entrance is a bit steep; if you have a low car, go slow and at an angle.
3180 Imjin Rd

Great one-liner for a script to get the directory it resides in -
1
DIR="$( cd "$( dirname "${BASH_SOURCE[0]}" )" && pwd )"
Linked from the stackoverflow page where I found this.

Had a problem recently: on a mac,
pbcopy
and
pbpaste
weren't transferring data to/from the GUI Command-C and Command-P (copy and paste).
After much consternation, the correct solution ended up being a system reboot. Problem solved. No, killing pboard didn't help.

I often search for something, then want to edit the files where it's found. Here's a nice function I stuck in my bashrc to do just that.
12345
grepvim() {
	if [ -z $1 ]; then echo "Must supply search string."; return 1; fi
	if [ -z $2 ]; then echo "Must supply search file(s)."; return 1; fi
	vim $(grep $1 ${@:2} | sed -e "s/:.*$//" | sort -u)
}
Use:
1
grepvim search file1 [file2, wildcard, etc...]

"It was not designed in isolation to prove a point, or to serve as an example, but as a tool to write programs that did useful things; it was always meant to interact with a larger operating system, and was regarded as a tool to build larger tools."

"Startups and big companies differ in a lot of ways. When it comes to hardware, the gulf between the two is massive. Early-stage startups are painfully under-financed. This lack of capital makes manufacturing one of the most critically dangerous periods in a young companyís life. One tiny mistake in a design, tool, or QC process and BAM, youíre out of business.
There are no second chances in hardware."
