Every Aussie parent just wants to protect their kids. That's why the last 3 years have broken me – my daughter and beautiful granddaughter have been trapped by a controlling ex-husband. They’re being held in Egypt where this man can legally use a husband "travel ban" to stop them leaving the country....

I just used #LetsEncrypt, and it's awesome. It took about an hour (including learning) to get it working with Docker and Tornado. The actual certificate generation took seconds.
Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated, and open certificate authority brought to you by the Internet Security Research Group (ISRG). ISRG is a California public benefit corporation, and is recognized by the IRS as a tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

What's with all the new roofs at Richmond Station having different heights? ... And are they going to clad the walls on the ramps, or leave them as exposed posts? Looks a bit lousy ATM.

This is a problem for all works covered by copyright!
The current debate over furniture design and intellectual property is a symptom of the wider problem we face when vested interests take hold and the law takes on a life of its own, writes Chris Berg. Law often takes on a life of its own. We see this all the time. First, parliament introduces a ...

I'm getting a bus error on my hard drive, which suggests a bad cable or connection. So I want to open my laptop up, disconnect the hard drive, and reconnect it again. But I can't get into the thing. Torx screws on a consumer device? Poor form, Dell.

+Dylan AudioYep, so now I do. Not a bad screw type, I guess.

Turns out it was indeed a loose connection. Plugged it back in, and away we go! So the error first happened when my computer woke from sleeping; I guess the connector came out while I carried it. Amazingly, it woke fine and I could continue browsing etc. It took about half an hour before I realised the drive was mounted read-only. Respect, GNU+Linux.

Sorry I didn't mention your fantastic contributions to Cargo during my talk, +Lev Lafayette​! I had intended to. I also meant to talk about the changes we made to Blender during development (free software and all that, you know). Oops.

This is a pretty cool simulator. All WebGL exported from Blender!

Fantastic coffee (roasted on site), great food, and space for small kids. I had the avocado smash. It came with a drizzle of tangy sweet soy sauce, which brought it alive and set it apart from similar dishes elsewhere.

Nice cafe, one of the few open on new year's day. It was busy but the staff kept up. They were very flexible, and even let us move our table (physically picking it up) twice: once to move it outside, and again to shift it onto some grass under a nearby tree. The veggie burger was tasty enough, but used a generic (somewhat boring) pattie. Coffee was more bitter than I'm used to, but the good atmosphere made up for it.

Amazing food: the red curry was deliciously tangy, and light but very satisfying. The staff were considerate and helpful (we were dining with an 18mo).

Nice decor, great North Indian food and highly attentive staff. Very reasonably priced too! Maybe slightly westernised compared to other Indian restaurants in the local area, but the flavors are more authentic than a lot of Indian restaurants in Australia.

Friendly and quick service. Good selection of drinks too; try the ginger latte!
