Hello kinja neighbors, and welcome to the been on an unplanned haitus cross thread. The cross thread is intended as a random thread of sorts (with the occasional topic) shared across Whitenoise, Hackerspace, Groupthink, Powder Room, Odeck, Tay, Oppo, Backtalk, Clashtalk, CrossTalk, Gawrker, and The Salad Bowl . It’s often hosted on a different blog each week, and let me know if you’d like to host. How’s your summer been going?
