If my browser is open for more than 12 hours (like if I leave the computer on overnight) then feedly stops loading and asks if it's been blocked. Since I'm usually leaving the browser open because there are other tabs I need open it is a HUGE pain to reboot the entire browser just so I can get my RSS feed.

Fundraising for Rape Crisis Centers

Each year I do a fundraiser for rape crisis centers, offering prizes to encourage people to participate. This year, in addition to giving away an ARC of my own Libriomancer, we've got autographed books from +Alyx Dellamonica, Patrice Sarath, +Anton Strout, +Stina Leicht, S. L. Farrell, +Elizabeth Bear, +Martha Wells, Anne Bishop, Marie Brennan, and +Laura Anne Gilman.

Please check it out and spread the word.

Don't worry, y'all, despite all that marble in DC's best attempt, I remain uncrushed.

From the Sorry About Your Drought but This Is Really Interesting department:
As lack of rain caused the waters of Turkey's Lake Kucukcekmece to slowly pull away from its shore, the ancient harbor town of Bathonea revealed itself. The ruins of buildings, roads, and a sea wall are thought to date back as far as the 2nd century BC, meaning it would have been a thriving community at a time when Byzantium--now Istanbul--was a sprawling metropolis.

Spotted on Tumblr. I love this so much, it's going on the Wall of Inspiration by my desk, next to my Cult of Done Manifesto and Ira Glass' Crossing The Gap thing.

a very interesting article, but McAlvanah is mistaken about the Veteran Affairs committee being the only Senate panel that is completely in compliance with NARA. HSGAC is, too
