The proper name of the game for getting people to post in the Faces of Geekhack thread is called "Stop, Drop, and Selfie". #Stopdropandselfie is the proper associated hashtag. Spread the word

the scanned license/ID thing is something that another forum I used to go to uses.  It used to be invite-only, but now I think accounts just need to be 'verified' before they can post buy/sell threads.  It has worked reasonably well for them, I don't think there have been any major thefts, and 4 and 5-figure items are frequently being sold there.  However, it must be noted that it is a marketplace forum, and may not work as well for GBs that may have hangs and hiccups.

Maybe he would shave it off and send it to you if you asked nicely enough.  It would grow back, so eventually everyone could have a bit.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Looks like my Soundcloud account is messed up, at the moment.  I can't log in and access it for whatever reason.  E-mailing their support.

When will the next entry be?
