Don't know if this will help, but the tool they have is pretty slick for connecting you to your representative.
The FCC’s 2015 Open Internet Order was the culmination of years of net neutrality advocacy and a big step toward a free and open Internet. Now, some lawmakers are trying to undermine the FCC’s ability to enforce it (https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2016/04/congress-vote-hindering-fccs-ability-protect-open-internet). Tell your representative: don’t vote for a bill that compromises net neutrality.

Yes, you should get it.
 
Yet again, Risus drives on thru. This is an all-new layout of Ring of Thieves based on the v3 text. It is free, and you should get it.

We've fought for a federal open access law for three years. The finish line is in sight.
When we pay for federally funded research, we should be allowed to read it. That’s the simple premise of the Fair Access to Science and Technology Research Act (S. 779 (https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/senate-bill/779)), which now has a real chance at passing. Let’s send a clear message to the Senate: we can’t stall on open access for another year. It’s time to move FASTR (https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2016/03/tell-congress-its-time-m...

Hey +matt jackson - maybe the colored tabs would help out with organizing your moleskine.
 
If you are going to do great this year, make sure you have the right tools by your side. With numbered pages, index, table of contents and adhesive page tabs.

I must say that this is a great adventure.
 
It's been quite a journey for this one, but the road ends (and the adventure begins) in five days, when it's free Toast for everyone. #RisusRPG

Posters posters posters - if only I had a place to put posters.
 
I've been going a little overboard with the swag posts, I know. But it's just really fun. And this one's special, because it's Risus: The Anything RPG, the entire game, laid out to take best advantage of the poster formats available. So, if you've always wanted Risus on the wall of your den of geekery (or if you never really wanted that, but suddenly do now) then here we go.
Available as Posters, Home Decors, and Prints

I think part of the reason I've gone a bit poster-crazy is that we're moving into a cheaper apartment away from the city ... but in the process, we're getting our very first two-bedroom place, and the extra room is the new Cumberland (it's no longer just a laptop!) so the new Cumberland has walls ...

Introduction
I am a java web developer and overall geek. My name is Larry Bullock, but online, I usually use the nom de plume of Ruminator (or some variation thereof - rumn8tr, etc.). You can either believe that I like to discuss deep, heavy topics; or you can believe that I have a few extra stomachs and really enjoy food (you might not be wrong on either count).

Happy husband and proud father of 3.
