To my friend Joan; I will miss you.  Thank you for encouraging me to write; I promise I'll get back to that soon.  I will miss our fun conversations.  My thoughts are with your family tonight.

To all my friends reading this; I'm sorry if we haven't hung out in awhile.  Life keeps me pretty busy.  Know that I think of you all often.

Dunno about "the most", but it's definitely in the top 5, & over a lifetime, by far the most reliable entry in the list.

Anyone want to get paid to help out a good cause?
 
I run a non-profit and will be looking to redesign our website at the end of this month. Up until now, I'd primarily handled the task myself as it's just a simple wordpress installation but I want something a little nicer than what I've been able to achieve on my own AND we were hacked some time ago and I've never fully recovered the site so I also need someone familiar with SQL databases so I can get everything fully restored (if possible).

I know I said "non-profit" but this will be a paid gig. So, any recommendations on site builders/designers for small businesses would be awesome! The link below is an example of what I'd like to turn my site into.

Looking forward to it - please put a comment with a link in this thread when ready!
 
This won't just effect Australia; they're trying to pass that here in the US, too.
 
A short, entertaining video that explains how the TPP will override Australian laws in favour of multinational corporations.

With a series of murky international trade agreements like the TPP being negotiated, will a secret court give corporations the power to erode the rights of nation states?

Ayep. Obama somehow just managed to get it fast-tracked in the Senate. :(
 
The folks behind #Keyboardio  stopped by the +LVL1 HackerSpace and showed off their prototypes and device; it was a very cool experience:

Know anyone who needs to hire a quality retouching expert?

No, not me; I'm out of that game.  My friend Dave here, though, needs a new job:

+Ben Hibben I used to create a duplicate layer, circular-blur it, then paint it over the original image.
