I think the single most important political issues today are electoral reform and campaign finance reform. Their effect is indirect but undeniable: until we fix how our officials become elected, they will have no reason to bend their ears and sincerely listen to the people of America beyond a select few. Please ask President Obama about reducing the impact of money in politics, gerrymandering, and alternatives to first-past-the-post elections. Our words on a thousand other vital issues are wasted without them.

IT and SE types should find this funny:

I use the CAD software Pro/Engineer at work every day. After a Windows Update (I eventually realized) I could no longer access our Pro/Engineer server. I eventually realized that I could not see our server from Pro/Engineer or from IE, but I could see it from Chrome.

As it turns out, Pro/Engineer's network connectivity was built on top of IE, and IE settings regarding privileges the local server had were blocking server access. I lost a healthy few hours of more productive worth to this coding curiosity.

Why, in agnostic heaven's name, would you build your software's network connectivity on an IE framwork?

2 hours left on this incredible fund raiser! Please, if you are in any way a fan of this wonderful comic, please throw in your support, we have one last obscenely ridiculous goal to hit!
Help us reprint the out-of-print The Order of the Stick books to reach new readers (and let existing fans complete their collections).

I would agree with everything you said. Its also very very smart, even more than Gutter Anthems. I'd be a bit concerned its "overwritten" if they wanted mainstream success from it. Not that I think they should be worried about that.
