Today in my inbox is an email from Google about the new Play music Service apparently called "Google Play Music All Access". While this is a pretty horrible name for a service.. if you sign up before June 30th your monthly fee will only be $7.99. The price will be going up to $9.99/month after 6/30.
My wife has posted a gofundme campaign to try to raise funds for our friend and community member Paul "Nigel" Cote who recently suffered a heart attack.
Please consider heading over and donating a little something. So far we've managed to raise over $200 in five hours. Thank you!

This of course means that my site got a slew of traffic and much of it from osticket.com.
