Whether or not you like the nsfw stuff what google is doing is nasty. Read the link about the damage they're going to do. Why?
Yep, free service so suck it, but little notice and disappear the already marginalised. Not nice.
 
"Every Blogger user behind an "adult content warning" page was told Monday by Google to delete sexually explicit content, or find their blog removed from every form of access except invited, registered users.

Until today, Google's Blogger platform previously allowed "images or videos that contain nudity or sexual activity," and stated that "Censoring this content is contrary to a service that bases itself on freedom of expression."

That changed on a whim Monday when Google ripped the rug out from under its previously-compliant Blogger users, who were told they'd be disappeared if Google decided their blogs contain "sexually explicit or graphic nude images or video." (...)"
Summary:In an abrupt reversal of policy, Google will soon disappear blogs on its Blogger platform that don't conform to its new anti-adult policies.

It says images or video. Not text. I didn't get a notice on mine.

Humblebundle books at a price you can afford
 
Have I mentioned the recent Humble Bundle yet here on G+?

It's your chance to get over 100 dollars of DRM-Free ebooks for super cheap.

What's more, a chunk of the proceeds will go to my charity, Worldbuilders.

There are some great books in there by great authors. Including one of my favorite books of all time...

It's a limited time offer, so you might want to head over there and check it out sooner rather than later.

Spread the word,

pat


https://www.humblebundle.com/books
In celebration of the publisher's 20th anniversary, we proudly present $96 worth of sci-fi, fantasy and horror in the Humble Subterranean Press Book Bundle.

Welcome to the future. Particularly if you live in California
Brazilians are hoarding water in their apartments, drilling homemade wells and taking other emergency measures to prepare for forced rationing that appears likely and could leave taps dry for up to five days a week because of a drought. In São Paulo, the country's largest city with a metropolitan area of 20 million people, the main reservoir is at just 6 percent of capacity with the peak of the rainy season now past. Other cities in Brazil's heav...

Can't find the article I want now.

But some of the outrage of state water sources california relies on are stressed as well.

But either way farmers vs city for water seems to be a perennial Californian issue.

Don't use about.com for a while
 
New, by me - I tried to include some advice for visitors to About sites just in case...
Summary:A security researcher disclosed Monday that over 99 percent of About.com's topic links and domains are vulnerable to open XSS and Iframe Injection (XFS) attacks.

I actually hit it last week and thought it was odd.
Useful result but been a while between them there.

3rd interview in a week.
One last week with a new company building a big project.  Still to hear back.
One on Monday with an established company in a new role. Word maybe next week.
Phone interview just then with a big established company looking to fill a new role who has a massive work program ahead after a recent purchase.  I seemed to hit all his questions and know which problems he needs someone to help solve - he noted from my answers I was aware of the environment in which the company was operating.  48 applicants, from recent graduates to (ex-)CEOs, 18 get a phone screen for a chance at interview next week.

Better get my suit dry cleaned.

Data retention isn't just bad. The problem is we don't know how bad it will be.

Penalty rates, the minimum wage and the workplace flexibility of 11.5 million Australian workers will come under the microscope in a sweeping review of the industrial relations system.

+Derek Symion sorry, not sure exactly what argument you mean. i just showed the three possible outcomes of the inquiry.

In an even handed situation SPC should be advised to fire a bunch of its workers and replace them with automatic mechanical systems... thereby keeping wages as they are but for less people.

Not that I am happy with that solution, quite the opposite, but the failure to automate many of our industries is why most (big) businesses in Australia go out of business.
