"On the scale of 1 to 10, this is an 11," wrote security expert Bruce Schneier in a blog post this week. He was referring to Heartbleed, the devastating two-year-old bug that was only revealed Monday. It is quickly snowballing into the single biggest security vulnerability in Internet history. Here’s what you need to know about it, what it’s doing to companies, and what you can do to protect your data.

Exploring Sarajevo’s Abandoned Olympic Park

To see more photos and videos of Sarajevo’s Olympic bobsled and luge track, explore the Olimpijski Bob Staza and Trebević location pages.

Stark against the dense forests of Trebević mountain stands a crumbling, brightly adorned concrete track built for the 1984 Olympic Games in Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The track, used for bobsledding and the luge competitions until 1991, primarily draws hikers and graffiti artists these days. It bears the marks not only from the passage of time, but also from the wars that plagued Bosnia and Herzegovina during the 1990s.

I find it hard to talk about this situation without tearing up, but here goes.

For those who haven’t heard, Michael Morones is an amazing little boy who has experienced significant and persistent harassment and bullying because of his love of My Little Pony.  So much so that this week Michael attempted to take his own life.  He is currently in a coma and seems to have has suffered brain damage.  His family is now faced with mounting medical expenses, lost work time, and the horror and stress of seeing their sweet, amazing child suffer.

For those who would like to reach out to Michael and his family or follow Michael’s progress and recovery, you can do so via both Facebook and Twitter

Donations directly to Michael’s family can be made through paypal using this email address- csuttle3@gmail.com

I am also running an ebay auction with all proceeds going to Michael and his family.  

The auction includes-

An 11x17” print featuring Spike the Dragon and Mayor Mare, signed by their voice actor Cathy Weseluck and a first edition printing of the book Twilight Sparkle and the Crystal Heart Spell, signed by author G.M. Berrow.

The complete set of out-of-print official 11x17” My Little Pony posters.  Styles included are Season 2 Cast, Antagonists, Royal Wedding, and Equestria Map

Fifty-six of my convention prints.  Close to every print I’ve ever had at a con can be yours in one fell swoop.

If there’s something from my gallery that you don’t see here, and you win the auction, let me know and I’ll make it happen.

43 buttons including all the ones I’ve retired. ALSO, though not listed on ebay, but I will include the I Believe In MA Larson button, the I Believe in Tacos and Beer button, AND a Chaurus Egg Button.

My new Alicorn Amulet blank notebook with fabric cover, silver page edges and laser-etched  symbol on the front cover.  The notebook is the first version of the Black Alicorn Amluet books I will be selling at conventions and on Etsy later this year.  This copy will be the only one made with the crystal version of the Alicorn Amulet. 

Thanks to everyone for checking in.  If you can, please take a look at the auction or make a donation to Michael.  If you can’t, then please keep Michael in your thoughts and prayers.  I will try and keep my Deviant Art version this journal updated as information changes and other ways to help become available.

Borderlands — Tales from the HQ Animated Series Coming December

Months ago, 2K and Gearbox announced a partnership with the Academy of Art University to create an animated short film set in the Borderlands universe. Since then, the plan has been revised to include the creation of three animated short films.

The series, titled “Borderlands — Tales from the HQ,” is slated to release on YouTube this December. Over 100 students worked on the project, and over the course of eight months, 14 different storyboards were created, of which three were ultimately chosen for animation.

One of the lucky three was “Bride of Frankentrap,” an episode conceived and storyboarded by Leslie Harwood.
