Apparently I look at Google + every 18 days. Job looks intriguing, but too far. I like my in laws in Shirley a lot, but...

Okay, gonna try this place again because FB seems to have confused the heck out of everything. Problem is, to me this is still a wasteland. The only people I know who have adopted G+ at all seem to be either librarians or an occasional IT professional. It feels like pre-web internet days...

Run a website that allows external users to post content? Worried about what happens if SOPA or PIPA get implemented? Here's a good little article to keep you ahead of the game... they will automatically reroute any DNS requests to an IP request which neither bill would be able to stop:
