So, anyone have recommendations for free image archives? Thinking of stuff like memory.loc.gov, www.gettyimages.com, and so on?
Find high resolution royalty-free images, editorial stock photos, vector art, video footage clips and stock music licensing at the richest image search photo library online.

Ok folks, need some advice. Trying to print out a print table for random rolling for my cosmic encounter game.

Right now I've got three columns: Dice Roll, Name, Difficulty Level.
Let's say I want to compact this as much as possible, so ideally I'd print in landscape mode, with the columns "wrapping", that is, when it hits the bottom of the page, it treats the three columns as unbreakable and starts again at the top of the page if possible.

Any ideas on how to do in LibreOffice? Or should I attempt this some other way. (Say, xsl-fo?)

Does anyone know of any resources that allow folks to collaboratively build up a list of books? I'm thinking there's probably stuff like LibraryThing and GoodReads, but does anyone have a preferred tool?

(Thinking of having a talk w/ links and qr barcodes to lists and asking the audience to extend them.)

Unhappy with the recent state of politics? Feeling like there's little you can do to change things?

Seriously consider donating to mayday.us. If it reaches $5 million dollars by the end of today, that money will go to candidates who are serious about campaign finance reform.

If they don't make the pledge level, they return the money (ala kickstarter).

It's not affiliated with either of the major parties and you can select that the funds only be reserved for either Democratic or Republican candidates.

Even if you can just donate a few bucks, I believe this is an important political experiment and a noble effort to again have a government of the people, by the people and for the people.

Let's make a government we can all be proud of: https://mayday.us/
Help us reduce the influence of money in politics and pledge today!

Pledged to #MAYDAYUS -- seems like a good cause: http://MAYDAY.US/
Government has failed us. And more than 90% of Americans link that failure to the influence of money in politics. Yet the politicians do not talk about this influence. While our democracy decays, they spend endless time with their funders. These funders hold our democracy hostage.

Wish I could better explain the feeling of simple elegance and beauty from some code. It's like snuggling contently with Colleen.

Just got the song "Where have all the IPs gone?" stuck in my head. If it doesn't actually exist, it should.

I rarely feel overwhelmed with information. However, feeling annoyed by a distinct lack of time is quite common.

I don't talk much about politics, but Lessig's work has always impressed me. Take a look at https://mayday.us/.  If you are int he US, I strongly encourage you to consider at least contributing some money to this experiment. #MayDayPac

So, any recommendations on good books on software testing (mostly platform agnostic) and/or css frameworks, in particular bootstrap?

Actually almost finished reading Clean Code. Got interrupted by some reading for my IT book club.  Hadn't heard of the 4 Rules book though, thanks!.
