devMEET Report: September 17th, 2007
Welcome to the fifth newsletter on world wide devMEETs! If you don't know what devmeet is, it is an account dedicated to promoting devMEETs around the world. Our journal lists upcoming and recent devMEETs as we hear about them. We are also working on putting together a comprehensive FAQ on everything about devMEETs, from what they are to suggestions on how to organize them. A devMEET Mag is also in the works, but until we've got that sorted out, some reviews on recent devMEETs will be provided with our twice monthly newsletter.
:new: NEW!
I have added a "devMEETs Wanted" section. If you're looking to plan a devMEET and want to see if there are people interested first, let me know. If you think there should be a devMEET in your city/area, let me know. This list will be in alphabetical order, not date order even if there's a tentative date set. This section is also going to stay in the journal until I see if enough people find it useful.

:: Contest - Heroes ::
Most people have a hero, right? Sporting legends... movie stars... family members or the guy who gives up his seat on the crowded train.
Each one has their part to play and some feel the effects more than others. They inspire us in our own lives even if they don't realise it.
Hero
he-ro [heer-oh] Noun. plural -roes
1. A person of distinguished courage or ability, admired for their brave dees and noble qualities.
2. A person noted for feats of courage or nobility of purpose, especially one who has risked or sacrificed his or her life.
3. The principal male character in a story, play, film etc.
4. Classical Mythology:
a. a being of godlike prowess and beneficience who often came to be honoured as a divinity.
b. a warrior-chieftan of special strength, courage, or ability.
c. an immortal being; demigod.
5. The bread or roll used in making a hero sandwich... :O_o:

Four and a half years there and I moved to Melbourne.

But I still wont drink XXXX Beer, or Crown Lager

Cancer's a bitch

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 24, 2014, 7:41 AM
  • Listening to: A Fan Whirring
  • Reading: Tom Clancy Novels
  • Watching: Burn notice
  • Playing: with myself
  • Eating: Food
  • Drinking: Water


All I'm going to say is this: To date I haven't been diagnosed with cancer. But statistics show that at least one of My Mother, My Sisters, My Nephews, My Niece, probably will at some point. My brother and one of my sisters already have been.

I participate in fundraisers for raising the fight against cancer because it's a non-discriminating demon of a disease that nobody deserves to be subjected to.

If you can, I'd appreciate any donations. If you can't, I understand, money doesn't grow on trees.

This is for Coombsey - Coombsey is a friend of mine who's got Terminal Cancer. To help him laugh in Cancer's face, he started Naked Tuesdays

Your support is appreciated, be it financially, or even just by sharing this link and awareness.. Please see This link for more information, and the generic plea

Please see more information about Coombsey's cause here: youtu.be/mpaq7c1xEb8
