What started as an unorganized, autonomous band of like-minded individuals has developed into an efficient software producing machine filled with talent and potential. For 10 years now, an underground organization known only as ‘GBBG’ has been evolving. Now we are ready for the BIG TIME
Once upon a time, around 10 years ago, a few software developers started an underground forum to share ideas, collectively solve problems, and periodically show off their skills to their peers. They established a meeting place so members could come and go as they please, participate openly without judgement or criticism, and even remain entirely anonymous if desired. Admission to this secret society was by invitation only, and subject to successful demonstration of intellect and skill.
Over time, trust and respect evolved among peers. Groups of individuals banded together around ideas. Projects emerged to provide solutions for different problems. Entire software packages and operational frameworks grew out of thin air. Some of these solutions had so much to offer, they gained the attention of the entire club.
Eventually, chaos and random chit-chat became uniform efficiency and focused discussion. What was once a friendly experiment was becoming a well-oiled machine. And, as expected, the members realized they had POTENTIAL to create something bigger.
Ten years is not a short time in the world of software development. A team with this long-standing history has, and will continue to foster value. The combined experience, knowledge, and honed skills become impressive. Inevitably, the collective team is THE ASSET.

Blessed Sunday (or for some like me, Monday)!
I know I have been missing in action again this weekend and usually when I am totally "out of the FanBox world" I am in the busy real world experiencing something really awesome!
I just tend to realise that lately ha ha ha.
(well, making Crafts of Love items is also something awesome! Wouldn't you agree?)
Anyway, this weekend, was another day not wasted. It started from lack of sleep since Tuesday; from designing to execution, and then replenishment.

Facts About Lucid Dreaming
Dreams are a series of images, emotions, and thoughts that occur during sleep. The term 'lucid dreaming' refers to a kind of dream in which the dreamer has the realization that he/she is dreaming, and has some control on the dream. While Frederik van Eeden is credited with coining this term, there are references to this practice in a French publication named Les Reves et Les Moyens de Les Diriger: Observations Pratiques, which was written by Marquis d'Hervey de Saint-Denys (1867). The title translates to 'Dreams and the ways to direct them: Practical observations'. The scientific community is not at a consensus regarding the veracity of this phenomenon, and studies are still being conducted.
In the 1960s, Celia Green, a British writer and the founder of the Institute of Psychophysical Research, made the connection between REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep and false awakenings (when you think that you have woken up but soon realize that you are still dreaming). Stephen LaBerge, the founder of the Lucidity Institute, is known for his seminal work in this field. In 1978, he published data on an experiment, wherein the dreamer indicated his consciousness through pre-determined set of eye movements within the dream state. In another study that was conducted at the Neurological Laboratory in Frankfurt, in 2009, gamma brain waves were recorded during lucid dreaming, thereby indicating the fact that the dreamers were at a higher state of consciousness while they were having a lucid dream.
When Do Lucid Dreams Occur?
Sleep refers to a naturally-recurring state of rest that is characterized by partial or complete loss of consciousness, wherein several bodily functions are suspended. There are five stages in one cycle of sleep. Each cycle lasts for 90 minutes. Each cycle includes four stages of NREM (Non-rapid Eye Movement) sleep and one stage of REM sleep.
5 Healthy Foods for Instant Energy
WATER It doesn't come with any slick advertisements or cutesy cartoon characters to sell it, but plain old H2O is one of the quickest energy boosters out there. When kids become dehydrated, their energy plummets and their brain gets foggy, which makes it hard to concentrate. How to get them to drink it: Kids often don't realize when they're dehydrated, so keep water handy and offer it often, especially if they've been playing a lot or have been out in the sun. Skip flavoring packets, which are often full of artificial sweeteners, colors, and flavors. You can try adding a squeeze of lemon for flavor, but I've found that most kids don't like any "floaties" in their water. The trick is in the packaging-let your child pick out a fun water bottle (they can even decorate it themselves with permanent markers) or stock up on twisty straws and funny ice cubes. You'll be amazed at how much water they'll drink. Related: 4 Foods to Eat for a Healthy Smile OATMEAL

In the aftermath of Newtown, with all the sensationalism starting to set in, with the beginnings of the seemingly inevitable politization of the unmentionable slaughter of innocent children and adults, I think it is all the more important for simple, sincere shows of grace and humility to rule the day.
