What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Linkee-poo for a hurried Monday

Still busier than a cougar in a phone booth (that phrase may have passed out of current knowledge because I can't remember the last time I saw a phone booth).

Jim Hines' fundraiser for Rape Crisis Centers is going better than previous years. Congrats, Jim, on your work for a good cause.

Chuck Wendig with a good treatise on showing, not telling. In case you were struggling with that concept.

The Slactivist has a very poignant and apropo quote for the day. Matches into one of my currently favorite Jesus quotes (didn't know I wielded them, did ya, hey, I went through catechism - the protestant version), "Render unto Caesar…".

Apparently, while Google was doing their "Street View" drive-byes, they were also war driving. And they were collecting the data being sent over those wireless networks. Just a reminder to turn on that encryption, ya all. Not that it'll help against a determined hacker, but it'll keep the mildly curious away. (Grokked from Jay Lake)

Tweet of my heart:
@joe_hill: Don't ever write a novel unless it hurts like a hot turd coming out. - the always tasteful Charles Bukowski
