Ahhh, Movember. While some women may scoff, I do love a well-groomed manly ‘tache. And there’s none that I like better than the Snook’s. You should donate to his page and convince him to keep it year ’round!

Ever, Jane: The Virtual World of Jane Austen by Judy L. Tyrer – Kickstarter – A MMORPG set in Regency England where you take down your enemies with gossip rather than guns. Interesting! I wonder if I can play as a Caroline Bingley type and wear turbans and look down on people for being excessively tan. I also love the backer rewards, especially the $10,000 level which earns you the title of Earl in the game (and associated estate), along with an actual handknitted Regency-style item from one of the developers. Very cool.
Jump-in is ALIVE!
The project that I’ve been working on for the past four months, ever since starting at Mi9, has finally been launched! The Jump-in site is now fully responsive and allows you to watch full episodes of Channel 9 (and Go and Gem) shows. We’ve had a Jump-in app for ages, but now we’re bringing that content to the world beyond iOS devices. This is only just the beginning! But man, I’m so thrilled with that the team’s managed to accomplish. This is a great foundation.
An Open Letter to the President and CEO of Costco – We were already going to head to Costco today, but now I feel all SNIFFLY about it. What a sweet letter! (And yeah, I’m not sure whether the Australian arm is as progressive an employer as the US one, but I really hope so.)
Randomly, Serious Eats has a series of recipes today that all involve breakfast cereal. I was amused by the Cheerios Coated Grilled Cheese Sandwich and the Cinnamon Toast Crunch Coated Apple Stuffed French Toast, but it was the Spiced Pumpkin and Golden Grahams Cereal Trifle that had me drooling. WHY didn’t I bring back a box from the US?! *kicking myself*
