What’s next? A week of seconds? We’ll see.
I need Your Help
I’m happy to admit that the goal of dropping to 200k Alexa ranking via Yakezie challenge has been met two weeks ago.
There’s just one problem: I’m not sure what to do now?
I guess I’m supposed to check in on the Yakezie forum (I’ve been too busy to hang out there too much), but I can’t seem to access it now. Tried initiating a password reset but it doesn’t do anything. Any ideas what to do about next?
Over the last two weeks with all the political stuff going on I came across many posts about the fiscal cliff. I thought it would be a good idea to see them all in one place to get a well-rounded understanding of what the heck it is (as if you don’t know by now!)
