The following occurred over the phone when a client had a minor issue with the site I built for him.

Client: Hi, the margin between the logo and the content is wrong. Can you simply change it while I’m on the phone?

Me: Sure. Did you want the margin to be bigger or smaller?

Client: Can you increase it about by 50%?

Me: Sure. How’s that?

Client: No, that’s not right. It’s too much. Can you decrease it slightly?

Me: Sure. How’s that for you?

Client: Sorry, it’s still not quite right.

After ten minutes of "a little more" and "a little less," the client tells me it’s spot on.

After they hang up, I realized that I had made a mistake. I had been viewing my local copy of the site, and they had been viewing the live version. I never once uploaded the changed file. 



kamen rider gaim is the deepest, best-written, intricate, mature children’s show on the air right now and there are few series that have it’s level of depth, i don’t care who you are, you should watch kamen rider gaim if you appreciate good storytelling and if you want a live action show with urobuchi-levels of anime storytelling (gargantia, madoka, fate/zero)

the fact that the four main characters can not only be an allegory for the united states, china, japanese tradition, and modern japan, are four of the best characters on tv right now

gaim is the first show i allowed myself to have high expectations for and the first show to exceed all of my expectations and it’s so good and so important



"One day in the subway, James saw a red cat with a wound to the leg that likely resulted from a fight with another cat. It was obvious that the cat needed help. James could not pass and took the cat to the vet. With a little medical treatment and prescription drugs, the cat quickly recovered. At that point, James found it impossible to say goodbye to Street Cat Bob. Bob followed James everywhere he went. As James played the guitar on the street and Bob sat nearby, revenues increased dramatically. People found it difficult to pass when they looked at the cute kitty. James went on to write a book describing their adventures in the street which was full of life – both dramatic and comedic. In the book, James says that he could not have imagined how meeting Bob would change his life. His friendship with the cat healed him from a life that had been very hard. Most likely, if Bob could speak, he would say the same thing.”



The crisis in Gaza is so serious, it can be seen from space

International Space Station astronaut Alexander Gerst has posted his “saddest photo yet.” From all the way up in the thermosphere, ISS personnel orbiting 200 miles over the Middle East can see bombs and missiles exploding in Gaza and Israel as the two sides go to war.
