+Alexander Baran-Harper Thank you for your videos. Probably the best group of LaTeX instructional videos out there.

Moody Blues second show at Fallsview sold out in less than 15 minutes. I was able to get balcony seats for the first show. Not bad for a group that has been around since the sixties. I am impressed by the tour schedule the band has, quite a fast long pace.

As for the ticket sales, they went on sale at noon today. So you would have to be able to get to a computer at noon in order to have half a chance at getting tickets. I do not work on Friday so I was able to sit at the computer and buy them as soon as they went on sale.

God is not on the ropes, the Christian right is, us folks in the Christian left are doing just fine. So much scientific discovery is good, and was aided and abated long ago by way of education for everyone, an idea that was perpetrated by a bunch of left wing (at thy time) Christian zealots who wanted no more than for everyone to be able to read the Bible.

Finished 2014 off by painting a wall. We decided that we did not like the dark blue on one wall in the apartment and went to the store picked a colour, we both liked it, painted it on and then realised that the colour we picked called Pebble Cream was just, landlord beige. But we still like it. Happy New Year everyone.

Linux may be communism, but does it make good business sense to have so many businesses reliant on just one software provider? True we are all using the same kernel in Linux, but we do not have to.

Comunisim? Well without the free software contributions of (to name a few)
Tim Berners Lee
Linus Torvalds
Richard Stallman

The dot.com billionaires never make it to the starting gate.
Without this "communism" Gates, Balmer and Jobs are not worth a fraction of the money they are today.
 
The origins of the Linux communism connection. A somewhat lose connection but a connection regardless.
After a short silence, Motormouth is back, folks...

From my friend Mike Baker via Linkedin
"Lessons/Noah's Ark.
Don't miss the boat. Remember that we are all in the same boat! Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark. Stay fit. When you're 60 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big. Don't listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done. Build a future on high ground. For safety's sake, travel in pairs. Speed isn't always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs. Stressed? Float awhile. Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by pros. No matter the storm there's always a rainbow waiting."

Bottom line: You can always learn something from the Bible.

Here are some verses liberal Christians wish they would get “fundamentalist” about.

"If you would know the value of money, go and try to borrow some."--  Ben Franklin
At times I worry about the low interest rates, coupled with the bidding wars that can happen in real estate transactions.  To me it is like money is worthless. Perhaps it is, think about it, is there really enough money in the world to cover all the debt?
I would not enjoy going to a barter system, not at all.
When it comes to money theres lots of responsibilities that come with it. One being that if you're wealthy, don't spend it foolishly, be frugal with it . Not saying that you have to become cheap, but rather not spend money on unnecessary costs. Ben Franklins quotes and sayings about frugality address the topic perfectly. Teaching that wealth imparts the importance of frugality.

A new website made for sending LaTeX notes to one another also works as a place to test code. I had a line of LaTeX that was not compiling properly that I was able to manipulate to find a solution. Well worth a few minutes to check it out.

Somehow I do no think that he said that. Download his work? Just when did the word "download "enter the English language?

+Gary Walsh​ There are some lessons created for school children that have built in quotes like this one to teach children to look at information critically.

Really? Say it isn't so. So far all I can read is the headline.
Cyber-intelligence firm iSight Partners has identified a bug in Microsoft Windows that Russian hackers have exploited to target Western governments.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper says one of Canada's greatest mysteries now has been solved, with the discovery of one of the lost ships from Sir John Franklin's doomed Arctic expedition.
