I'm participating in Extra Life again this year, 24 hours of gaming to help children in need.

PLEASE DONATE! Look below for the link to the donation page, and feel free to RSVP to this event for updates as things progress toward the event weekend. Even if you can only spare $5, it certainly adds up... if everyone in my initial invite list donated that much, my goal would be surpassed by over 50%. All donations are tax deductible, at least for those of you in the US, and all proceeds in my case go to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.

http://www.extra-life.org/participant/140508

If you're not comfortable donating online, or can't for some other reason, cash donations are welcome if I'm likely to see you in person sometime this year. In that case, though, keep in mind that I can't give you a receipt for tax purposes.

If you'd like to help me out by spreading the word, feel free to share the link to this event page (that's one reason why it's public) or go even further and invite your friends directly.

Thanks in advance for your support!

Playing political games with disability benefits... yet another unscrupulous act by the "Christian" party.

This could be interesting, but it will definitely be hard to find someone to fill Lucy's boots and do it well.
But it will settle for bringing her back in 2016, when this reboot of the cult classic adventure show is tentatively due. Original Xena producers Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert are working on the series, but original star Lucy Lawless’ involvement is seemingly still to be determined—but it most likely won’t be as Xena herself.

Yep, and sadly this kind of thing isn't exclusive to Islam either...
Alaa Murabit's family moved from Canada to Libya when she was 15. Before, she’d felt equal to her brothers, but in this new environment she sensed big prohibitions on what she could accomplish. As a proud Muslim woman, she wondered: was this really religious doctrine? With humor, passion and a refreshingly rebellious spirt, she shares how she discovered examples of female leaders from across the history of her faith — and how she launched a campa...

Fortunately, there are updates going out for these things (even from Chrysler, though you have to go looking for it), but it's amazing to me how naive these manufacturers were in thinking that they could get away with such lax security in today's world.
Those hackers are driving me nuts! Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek are both experienced hackers who have been demonstrating their ability to hack into cars for years. On Tuesday, they met with Andy Greenberg of Wired to not only demonstrate the ease with which they could hack into his Jeep Cherokee from their remote location ten miles away, but also to demonstrate what functions they could control. Greenberg describes his experience: As the two ...
