@satchmoz I just don't like having to include a full copy of the license for any reuse of GFDL stuff, like images. I've seen t-shirts with a GFDL image on the front with the license taking up the whole backside :/ CC has the "just use a url and you're good" perspective.

The house is surprisingly in good shape for not having anyone live in it for two months. (Aug 16 - Oct 16).

of course, I did also see a guy in shorts and a t-shirt, it's just the wedding gown thing on a Monday :)

@craigmaloney the idea that people can't learn new technologies on the job is crazy.

If I could find a place that had yoga sessions with this as the music close to me, I'd be there in a heart beat.
