Now started a new epoch...

Time to roll up our sleeves and remake the world in the image of our ideals, hopes and dreams...

Yes we can!

With a nice bear interpreting...

And did I mention that I also find sign language like in this video sexy?

Just saw today's edition of "Cyanide and Happiness", giving a new fresh view on why this election is so important (in an odd heterosexual kind of way)....

You be the judge here...


Given I'm a political geek - I honestly read "OH" as Ohio at first.....

Been wanting to donate to No on Prop 8 for some time now - and saw in [livejournal.com profile] furr_a_bruin 's journal entry ( furr-a-bruin.livejournal.com/560663.html ) that the HRC is having a "double down" 

So I went to the website, and was pleased to see that they included a "Country " selection, suggesting that non-US residents could make a donation as well...  Some of the previous donation forms would only take contributions from US residents...

So i fill out the form: Select $100 bucks (which counts for $200!), fill in name, address, credit card details and such... Then hits Submit..

1st error: The street information is wrong. In Denmark, we type the road name before the house number, so my address is "Nedergade 50, 2nd floor"...

Well ... I changed that to "50 Nedergade, 2nd floor", then hit the Submit again...

New error: Wrong ZIP code for the credit card....  Well duh.... We have postal codes in Denmark, but apparently the website is trying to match my postal code "5000" to some US address...

I try to change it to "DK-5000"  - but get the same error...

Then again .... If this contribution form was open for non US residents, why is ZIP Code a required field...


Why does it have to be so hard to contribute.... ?

I just saw this on the Prop 8 issue

Google says 'No' on Prop 8
While we respect the strongly-held beliefs that people have on both sides of this argument, we see this fundamentally as an issue of equality. We hope that California voters will vote no on Proposition 8 -- we should not eliminate anyone's fundamental rights, whatever their sexuality, to marry the person they love.

I've been actively working to maintain a positive attitude towards life... Been thinking about spiritual concepts like Karmic Wheel/"What you give is what you get" lately... I've made an effort to be more proactive at work - be more overbearing when others make (what i percieve to be) mistakes....
And in some sense, I'm slowly starting to believe that you in some sense can reap rewards by just taking a more positive stance on life.... A few observations:

I've got a interesting job - got some nice colleagues and I very often get positive and affirmative comments from the things I do...
My department chief and the chief consultant has just commented independantly that they find me more skilled as head-honcho for the subsystem, than the guy currently holding that position (my intermediate boss), although I'm very new and he's been in the company for years. She (the dept. cheif)  would review the situation in the coming months - but this may be a way to a better position and/or salary...

Edwards just endorsed Obama...

To top that off, I've just been invited by Mozilla Corporation, to partake in the 2008 Firefox Summit in Whistler, B.C. Canada -- All expenses paid!
So I'll be making my first trip outside of Europe in the last week of July...

How can I feel but blessed...

Well..... It had to be revealed sooner or later...
