Just. Brilliant. Heineken asks if there's more that unites us than tears us apart. What a fantastic video!

Can't say I haven't felt that way more than once.

My 9 year old son told me that EVERYBODY is playing Minecraft on the PC now, as opposed to the tablet or console versions. What he was really saying was that he wanted me to build him a Minecraft PC server so that he could play with his friends on their own private server. Eventually, I gave in and, using the open Minecraft server from Project Rainbow, I created a very cool server for him, and his friends, to play on. In this video, I'll take you through all the steps so that you can make one for your kids. Or yourself. I'm not judging.

50 shades of scandal in the Drupal open source community. From the article, " The idea that women should be submissive to their husbands is a prominent feature of many religious faiths, and a value that plenty of Christians, Jews, Muslims, and others still hold dear—typically with way less add-on feminism than you'll find in BDSM relationships. Would the Drupal Association feel as comfortable ousting a devout supporter of Islam or evangelical Christianity if it came out that their wives practiced voluntary submission?"

The horror. The Horror! Even thinking about getting into the Megalopolis League in the Contest of Mayors is not for the faint of heart. It's wickedly hard work and really didn't think I'd make it. Except for one thing. There was this movie set, a horror movie set, that I really, really, really wanted. Check it out . . .

The Easter Story

Every Easter, a giant invisible white rabbit, only vaguely like the one in the famous play, Harvey, visits every house everywhere all around the world, delivering chocolates for Easter. He goes by the name, Easter Bunny.

Possessed with awesome jumping powers, the Easter Bunny doesn't need a sleigh or reindeer to cover the world. He just hops from house to house. When he arrives at a house where a boy or girl live, he slides down the chimney, in much the same way as Santa does. Unlike Santa, however, the Easter Bunny doesn't care if you've been bad or good. He has Easter eggs to deliver and by gum he's going to deliver them.

Now Santa may be rounder than the Easter Bunny but the Easter bunny is a lot taller. Also unlike Santa, the Easter Bunny can shrink himself down to the size of a fly. This is cool because if you don't have a chimney, he can come up the floor vents. Once he pops out, he returns to his normal size (about 7 feet tall). You won't see him,  of course, because he is invisible.

Once in your house, the Easter Bunny hops around, pausing to poop out chocolate Easter eggs here and there. The eggs are hidden because he's a bit shy about pooping in public so he poops the eggs behind furniture, bushes, and so on. 

Even though the Easter Bunny is invisible, you can tell when he's around because he growls like a tiger. So if you're out hunting for Easter eggs and you hear a low growl when you find an egg, that's the  Easter Bunny.

And that is what Easter is all about.

The robots ARE coming and there's no stopping it. We do, however, need to figure out how we fit into this whole picture. Not least of this looming need is a means of taking care of people who will lose their jobs and, really sorry, folks, whose jobs are NEVER coming back. Whether it's Universal Basic Income or taxing robots, something needs to happen now.

Airlines know you will buy from whichever carrier gives you the lowest price, no matter how bad the service is, so they can treat you like shit.
