RECOMMEND T-REX TO... THE INTERNET:
What are the haps my friends


November 17th, 2009: If you missed my Reflections | Projections talk, the tastefully-titled "GUYS, LOOKS LIKE IT'S WACKY TIME", and you still want to see it, then I've got some good news for you: the videos of all the talks are now online!

If you do anything with JavaScript, Douglas Crockford's talk, JavaScript: The Good Parts was really interesting, Alexis Ohanian's opening talk was excellent, and Robert Lang's talk on folding and origami was just incredible. Did you know you can solve quadratic equations by folding paper? The entire length of this Robert's talk I was nudging Jenn beside me and saying "I am tripping balls", and then whispering "whoaaaah"!

You can watch all these (and more!) (and apologies to the speakers I grouped under "more", but I didn't want to go on forever!) on the videos page. Seriously, check them out!

HERE ARE THE HOLIDAY SHIPPING DEADLINES FOR AWESOME DINOSAUR COMICS STUFF, YOU GUYS:
November 22nd: Deadline for USPS International First Class shipping!
December 8th: Deadline for USPS International Priority shipping!
December 15th: Deadline for USPS International Express and Domestic (US) First Class and Priority shipping!
December 21st: Deadline for USPS Domestic Express shipping!

So what this means is that if you don't live in the States, you should order soon to get sweet presents there in time for Christmas - no later than December 15th at the very latest, and that's with paying for express shipping. It's cheaper the sooner you order! If you live in the States you can push this a bit longer with the domestic shipping options, but you really shouldn't wait!

Might I recommend... this rad T-Rex hoodie?

To make sure the best gifts ever in time get to you when you want them, here are the HOLIDAY SHIPPING DEADLINES. Orders placed before these dates will get to you in time for Christmas!

December 1st-4th: All shipping methods except U.S.P.S. First-Class Package International Service™ are safe.
December 5th: International orders made not selecting U.S.P.S. Priority Mail Express International™ shipping will likely arrive in January.
December 10th: USPS FIRST CLASS and STANDARD may not make it in time and neither will USPS EXPRESS MAIL INTERNATIONAL.
December 14th: ALMOST NOTHING IS SAFE. USPS EXPRESS is the only safe USPS option. For FEDEX HOME/GROUND shipping it depends on where you are: refer to this map!
December 17th: A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE (IF THINGS PLACED ON OR AFTER THIS DATE ARRIVE BY THE 24TH, THAT IS)
