After a series of quarte disengage attacks, Bijan takes several counter-ripostes before finishing with a fleche. (For those striving for perfection--He's too close when I'm coming forward/hand is too far back in his sixte parry & he's not fully stretched in the fleche--Aside from these things, I think Bijan has admirable form but I'm his coach & biased...)

If you've ever organized an event, you know how chaotic it can be. Event planners are essential, but even so, taking the time to make sure it's organized and everyone is getting what they want can be stressful. Especially when you have to account for what every person is eating at the event, what their toppings are, and how they'd like their meal cooked.
With the purchase of my new Apple Watch, the days of striving to be a James Bond-like spy have never been closer to fruition. Granted, talking to your wrist in public can look pretty pretentious, and I may very rarely do it, but let's get real—you look like 007!

The problem with striving to be on the bleeding edge of what's new for your smartphone, or really anything else in life, is having to constantly check websites and forums for new content. And with lots of that browsing happening on our phones, the aimless page loading and refreshing is not just annoying when there isn't new content, but can lead to wasted data usage, not to mention time.

If I had Photoshop superpowers, I'd be constantly striving to make the world more beautiful. I'd be fixing, cloning, and leveling up the saturation of all the colors around me... Below, "I have PSD" by Hyperakt and friends.
Our mission for this week's Community Byte was to create a Python program to crack web-based passwords, like the ones you would see on an email or router login. I wanted it to be universal in the sense that it could be easily modified and adapted to another website just by changing a few variables. That was a success! Even though people weren't on time to the coding session, everything went well.
Welcome to the second Goonight Byte! Our second coding session was kindly hosted by th3m, so props to him for letting this happen.
