Ottawa Biofuel is a great local company that transforms used cooking oil into diesel fuel.
They’re currently running an Indiegogo campaign in order to update their equipment and expand their production.
They also make wonderful glycerine soap.
Even if you’re car-less, like me, it’s worth helping them out even for the 1 or 5 dollar pledge. You’ll be doing something good for the environment and helping out a great company.

I saw the new Amazing Spiderman last night and loved it. Unfortunately, the tickle in my throat I’ve had since Saturday turned into a full blown pain and by the end I could barely talk.
I’m home sick now and am going to attempt to do so writing.
Here’s this Wednesday’s recommendation: The Ten Doctors
It’s a webcomic with all the Doctors from Doctor Who from 1 to 10. It’s set right after The Runaway Bride and right before Season 3 and the Doctor’s adventures with Martha.
It should be fun for those of you who’ve watched the rebooted series but it’ll be amazing for those of you who’ve watched the classic series too.
The writer captures each doctor and their companions perfectly, somehow managing to bring out each personality in a cast of 30+ characters, not counting villains. Talking about villains, they’re all there from the Silurians, to Ice Warriors, all the way to the Valliard.

Hello my imaginary friends,
Last week I wrote ahead to make sure I had Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday off from writing. I thought that was enough. I totally forgot about the fact that Monday was a vacation and that I should have worked ahead. Past Eric messing with present Eric again.
Of course it’s a short week and the workload can be described as “AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!” so I’m not getting as much done as I’d like.
For all those reasons I’m starting a new tradition: Recommendation Wednesday. Where it’s Wednesday and I recommend something.
This week’s recommendation is: WereGeek.
It’s the most balanced gaming/slice of life comic I’ve read. The characters are fun and believable and the gaming is exciting and makes me want to try new things. Plus there’s a healthy sprinkling of puns.
Alina Pete has a great sense of humour and a great feel for characters. Go give it a read if you’re into gaming and like webcomics.
