AT-AT Organizer Has Everything You Need to Keep your Desk Organized
I guess forget about using The Force cuz The Empire has you covered for desktop organization.

The 1/72-scale replica AT-AT Multi Stand organizer from Premium Bandai contains hidden compartments and a snowspeeder (which you can attach to a charging cable to simulate the iconic scene we all remember from Empire).

Will go on sale December for about $95.00 (9,720 yen) in Japan. International shipping is I think available. If anybody can translate lemme know if that's the case.

Search Results are officially AMP’d - Get your WordPress site AMP'd too
Today, the median time it takes for an AMP page to load from Google Search is less than one second. Beyond just saving you time with fast loading pages, AMP will also save you data -- AMP pages on Search use 10 times less data than the equivalent non-AMP page.

Yoast has a great breakdown of getting your existing WordPress site running with AMP.

You can read more on AMP from Google here: https://www.ampproject.org/
My previous post about AMP lead to a ton of questions and rightfully so. We’ve been testing, developing and working hard in general on understanding what needs to be done to get AMP working without too many errors. This post is an update on where we stand right now, introduces an updated Yoast SEO AMP Glue plugin with …

Completely agree. The only argument I've heard is they want to position Hangouts as an enterprise/business product. Weak argument IMHO and as a Fi user Hangouts is the shiat!

Mega-detailed

My name is Paul Spoerry (http://www.PaulSpoerry.com) and I was fortunate enough to have a father who recognized that a computer would be a “good investment for his children’s future”. To his dismay the investment he spent a good deal of the family savings on wouldn't work when he brought it home. I begged him to let me play with it, but he always brushed me off (would you let a little kid play with a $5,000+ piece of hardware you’re struggling to make work?). After having several people out to diagnose the machine, each unable to fix it, he finally turned to me and said “well, you can’t break it any more than it already is” and walked out of the room frustrated. When he returned a few hours later the room was littered with components… I had his “investment” in pieces. I’m surprised I survived that day because I saw his face turn several shades of red in rapid succession. He walked out of the room… I’m not sure if it was because he was going to cry, or because he feared he might kill me after seeing what I’d just done. Several hours later he returned again, presumably to dole out my punishment. When he walked in the room this time it was no longer in disarray. The box was put back together, the OS was booted, and I sat there with the soft glow of the monitor highlighting a giant smile on my face. All he said as he walked out was “that’s yours now”.

That moment solidified my passion for technology. I've had very little “formal” training. I grew up hiding my inner geek, secretly tinkering with beige boxes that no one around me understood. I’d go to school, wrap up soccer or Tae Kwon Do practice, and then spend my nights dialing out (ok yes, sometimes wardialing) to BBS’s – seeking out other geeks and as much information as I could get my hands on. Sadly, my passion was discouraged at every turn by the education system… from Junior High all the way through college I was told my math skills weren't strong enough to work in computers. I eventually pursued a degree in Philosophy; but dropped out when I realized that would require a boatload more school (which I already didn't really care for) and all I’d be able to do with it was teach Philosophy.

As luck would have it I was really good at telemarketing (worst.job.ever…. you’re rejected for hours on end, it’s seriously a psychologically difficult job, but the money was good). This was fortunate because while on one of the thousands of calls made, I managed to social engineer my way into an interview at a technology training company. The rest is history because that call turned my passion into my career.

I now have a utility belt full of programming languages (like Batman but for coding). I'm into Local SEO, Lead Generation, Affiliate Sales, Email Marketing and promotions. I have a database of all my knowledge on databases; it has indexes on key elements and filegroups separated across different RAID arrays – performance baby. I'm a keywording SEO junkie fascinated by the new influence of Social Media / Social Networking / Engager. I practice code fu. Oh, I've also done actual Kung Fu - Citong Shaolin Kung Fu. I’ve done martial arts for a large majority of my life. I studied Tae Kwon Do for 15 years; earning a black belt and eventually worked hard enough to earn a gold medal in the Junior Olympics. I meditate daily and find mindfulness meditation has brought a quality of presence to my life that is amazing.  

I’m the proud father of a fantastic little boy. He’s incredibly smart, both intellectually (he’s in the gifted program at his school) and emotionally. When he’s with me we wrestle, play Xbox, and go for adventures with NERF guns in the woods behind our house. I’m his father, but he’s perhaps the greatest teacher I've ever had. I have a fantastic woman in my life; she’s full of more energy than I could possibly explain (no seriously, the woman can talk like you wouldn't believe). She’s deep, compassionate, and full of life. The three of us do Parkour together (free running) every week. It's an amazing, challenging, and rewarding thing to put your body in motion and challenge yourself to tackle new things or refine existing things every week. 

I’m an Android enthusiast… that means that I break my phone often tweaking and overclocking it (note to self: remember to NAND backup first!). My youth was spent spending time doing martial arts or sitting with my mom while my sister did dance lessons. While I never took lessons, I love to dance; it’s when I feel most free. The rapidly shifting landscape of social media is my latest fascination born from IT.

I'm active on EmpireAvenue and enjoy the community, engagement, and the fun of the social stock market. 

I code. I run. I love. I meditate. I dance.

I've been known to remodel airports on my lunch breaks, making them more efficient in the area of heat retention. I manage my time efficiently, I write award-winning opera, and translate ethnic slurs for North Korean refugees.

Using only a hoe and a large glass of water, I once single-handedly defended a small village in the Amazon Basin from a horde of ferocious army ants. When I'm bored, I build large suspension bridges in my yard. Thanks to my ginger playmate I know the exact location of every food item in the grocery store (yes, including real butter). With this knowledge I plot my shopping list on my smartphone for maximum efficiency. I've performed several covert ops for the CIA, the details of which I cannot share or I'd be forced to kill you. While on vacation in Belize, I successfully negotiated with a group of terrorists who had seized a small bakery.

I pay all my bills as they arrive and always on-time. I have a gold medal in full-contact origami. In college I discovered the meaning of life. Sadly, I forgot to write it down. I breed prizewinning shrimp and enjoy books... they are like the Internet but made of trees. I ponder who is smarter, Jesus or Buddha, in terms of not letting himself get crucified. No, this last part is not all original but has been modified to fit me and is hilarious.

I currently work for Concentrix developing web enabled insurance applications (formerly with IBM).  I blog at PaulSpoerry.com, tweet @PaulSpoerry, and develop for The LittleBigFund.org. I do side gigs via http://Enhanc3.com.
