Because he said Kenojauk
The noun that Aiden gave me was Kenojauk. I had absolutely no idea who, what, or where Kenojauk was. Turns out, Aiden was learning about Inuit art in school, and they had been reading about Kenojauk. Kenojauk Ashevak is an renowned artist who's work I had n...
Turns out, Aiden was learning about Inuit art in school, and they had been reading about Kenojauk. Kenojauk Ashevak is an renowned artist who's work I had never heard of, but once I started looking into her work and her style, I was captivated. Usually, I don't have much interest in art from ...

Hey Everyone,
Just diving head first into Google Apps Script.

I am a self-taught Microsoft Access developer for ages, and have put together some really great projects. Now, as the non-profit organisation I work for expands and we are slowly starting to migrate away from Microsoft to Google Apps, I am really excited about learning how to develop using this technology.

I've gone through some Apps Script code examples, and as you probably all know...it ain't VBA. That being said, I'm raring to go, and hope I can take some of the foundations of development and apply it using Google Apps Scripts.

I hope you will lend a suggestion here and there when I get stymied.

I've heard of FusionTables, but never looked into it. I am quite happy with everything that Google provides to NFP organisations. Although I think the learning curve might be steep, I think the outcomes will be easier to manage and cheaper than Sharepoint.

The article linked is worth a read. Science in Canada has been receiving government pressure since Harper became PM.

I'm wondering if the radar issues that happened here in NZ reently were in any way linked with DDOS attack that happened to Poland's flight control system.

Pilots would have lost all radar communication during an outage that grounded hundreds of flights.

I'm have recently embarked on something a little different as a creative experiment. My sister has two fantastic children that I'm just crazy about. They are intelligent, funny, and engaging and just a wonder to behold. In the past ,Alianna and Aiden, have sent me videos of themselves asking ...

We loved the amount of selection that this Roots store had available, and would have loved to have browsed the selection looking for some of the great Roots merchandise. But alas, we were virtually attacked by what I can only assume were commissioned sales people, because it was like they were buzzing flies, and we were the rotting carrion they were hoping to feast on. I couldn't touch an article of clothing without one of the staff member jumping in between me and the clothing shouting that they could find a size for me. My wife tried to look at a hoodie and a staff member jumped in between me and her offering to hold the hanger while she tried on the clothes. Added to this unpleasant situation was the fact that there was an irate and screaming customer trying to return an article of clothing that was no doubt force-fed to her in the past, and now she was suffering from buyers remorse. By-the-way...I am not being overly dramatic for effect. The staff at this store would follow you around virtually one step behind you, offering unwanted input and advice and would not leave you alone! Hey Roots: Want to sell some clothing? Let people browse your merchandise without being accosted. By comparison, the Roots store in Victoria was a dream. Staff greeted you warmly, and offered their services if needed. I only wish that store had the selection that the one on Robson had.

We've been using Zaminka for the last four years, whenever we need to go back to Canada for a visit. The staff there are friendly, professional, and ALWAYS take excellent care of our two dogs. Whenever we go to pick up our dogs after the trip, they always look wonderful and healthy, as the staff will ask if we would like them bathed and groomed on pick-up. We're often told of some of our dog's various antics while at the Dog Motel which says to us that the staff take their jobs seriously, and they truly care about them. We will continue to use Zaminka for as long as they show such excellent care and concern for our pets.
