Mozilla Webmaker is a fun, way to learn how the web works. It is similar to something like Codecademy, but much less structured. Which can be a good thing.
I've played around with Codecademy,and it is a lot of fun to learn, but it is very structured. Mozilla Webmaker is the complete opposite, and instead gives the chance to play around with a site. It is certainly a different ta...

My incredible DIY ipad attachment for a tripod. A metal bookend, some packing tape, and some rubber bands.
Great news was that it functioned perfectly. 
No bad news really, it was just really ugly.

I wish to have a portal I submitted removed as soon as possible.
Portal Name: Rainbow Riders

Portal Link: http://www.ingress.com/intel?ll=47.576231,-52.744772&z=17&pll=47.577161,-52.745404

Location: St. John's, NL, Canada

Grid NR03-Romeoe-06

The portal was just approved today, and I was waiting for that to happen so I could ask for it to be removed.  I submitted the portal, thinking it was a good idea because it is an interesting place, but upon reflection, and further reading the guidelines I believe it is a terrible idea. The facility in question teaches horse riding lessons to children aged 3-15 who suffer from a range of mental and physical disabilities. Placing a portal in a location that serves such a vulnerable section of the public was a bad idea, by me, and if possible I would like to see it removed as soon as possible. In many ways it is worse than if it had been placed at a school.

Anyone notice that _Jarvis_ bot that seems to have used a Jarvis virus on some portals? It hit my hometown, and I can see at least one other in Yellowknife. Storyline Jarvis? Or just a Bot with a similar name?

Foolish me, I put the BBQ in front of the snowblower, thinking it would be the most important thing in the shed. 
20cm of snow today, and another 20 or so on the way Wednesday proved me wrong.

You really do have my deepest sympathy. Because I left town this morning to spend two weeks down south, out of that crap. :)
