Despite Jonathan Huggett, the Director of the Johnson Street Bridge project, telling him in July there is no such thing as a fixed price contract, especially when you have warring contractors, an ever changing design, and an increase in construction materials required (more steel, concrete, and grout), our Mayor still seems to think the price isn't going to go up. "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me." Let's not let Dean Fortin fool us again in November. 
VICTORIA - A report on the Johnson Street bridge sparks more political controversy. CTV's Rob Buffam reports.

The 4 minute mile is 60 years old today. The 5 minute beer mile is a week old today, and of course it's held by a Canadian. Congratulations James Nielsen!

It just feels right for Sigur Ros to do some Game of Thrones music, considering the fact that Iceland is standing in for the scenes north of the Wall.
 
Sigur Rós covering the The Rains of Castamere from last night's episode. Don't read the YouTube comments if you don't want spoilers! Actually, don't read any comments.  #gameofthrones

If you've got a spare two minutes and want a free bump of 2 GB on your Google Drive account, step through Google's security check before the end of the month.

Oh, how I am looking forward to an open and functional municipal government in Victoria.
Victoria council should not be going into closed-door session to receive a consultant’s assessment of the Johnson Street Bridge project, say directors of a citizens’ watchdog group. Victoria . . .

Another thing to do, in your browser this time, due to Heartbleed.
 
In the short term, I'd recommend checking this box in +Google Chrome.

This will help with online security until websites fully patch against the #Hearbleed #OpenSSL vulnerability.

The same sort of thing can be found in Firefox and in the Apple Keychain on Apple computers.

Unfortunately mobile platforms do not usually offer this check for revocation feature so there is no good answer there.
