Successful application of Scrum?

I may be one of the few people who enjoy bid management and fundraising. I am good at documentation management, procurement, recruitment, and development. However, I am looking for ways to be a better manager of campaigns and people where we may only have a few weeks to a month turnaround as well as managing the larger scopes these programs fall under which can last multiple years. Would Agile/Kanban/Scrum master training would be a good way to get these skills? Is there a way to understand discipline differences better for their applications?

Hurricane response - how can we know how FEMA is doing, &other efforts?

Is there a clearinghouse site for covering Caribbean or other hurricane relief efforts, reports from hurricane-hit areas other than St. John, ways to help that actually do help, ways to hold organizations' feet to the fire if that is called for, how to rebuild in preparation for future 'weather events', etc?

Country Video

I'm looking for an old country video, from the 80s probably. The main setting of the video is in a restaurant and the singer is on a date. There are plastic ketchup and mustard bottles on the table, and I think a checkered table cloth. Other scenes from the video include classic US Southern trees and covered bridges. I don't know who sings the song but the music is 80s country lite, along the lines of this Ronnie Milsap song. Halp? [more inside]

Recommendations for Jeet Kune Do training in Portland OR?

I'm interested in taking Jeet Kune Do classes and would love to get recommendations in Portland, preferably at a place that won't try to rope me into long-term contracts because my schedule is usually random/busy. Also, I'm not married to JKD and open to other styles as well. Thanks!

Audible.com notifications when my wish list books get added?

I prefer reading via audiobook. When I find a book I want to read that's not on Audible.com, I add it to my Amazon wish list. Sometimes, months later, I will do a search and discover that the recording has been added to Audible. Is there a way to get notifications when the audio recording is made available for a book on my Amazon wish list?

Recommend an LTO-7 drive for use on CentOS 7

I need to create LTFS LTO-6 tapes on a CentOS 7 system. As the newest LTO drive I have is a (non-LTFS) LTO-5 drive (I've been using tar and such), I figure I'll buy an LTO-7 drive, since they can write LTO-6 tapes, and I'll be more future proofed. Which model to get, considering not just the hardware, but also the corresponding LTFS Linux implementation? [more inside]

How to set up shared folder desktop sync in OneDrive for Business?

OneDrive for Business recently (finally!) implemented shared folder desktop sync - previously you could only sync to your desktop if the folders were created by you but not if they were shared to you. I can't find instructions for setup anywhere despite detailed searching including limiting results to the last month. Any ideas? [more inside]

Find this late '90s or early '00s Subaru "frozen in time" commercial

As a kid in the late '90s or early '00s, I remember seeing a Subaru commercial where a power line or telephone pole sparks and falls, and a Subaru narrowly avoids hitting the falling pole. The scene freezes much like in the Discover "Freeze It" commercial, and a narrator talks about Subaru's all-wheel-drive. I vividly remember him grabbing a piece of popcorn that the children in the back seat are eating and saying, "mmm...tasty" or something. The scene un-freezes and the car drives off. Can anyone find this commercial?

Can someone recommend a good solution for ModX migration to Wordpress

Hi all, I've inherited a fairly horrible done site full kinks and NO ONE likes ModX, it's really a horrible CMS and not user friendly unless you got developer chops. That said, how easy are ModX to Wordpress migrations? I saw some cost around $1500 but unsure who is really proven in this space. Thanks

How do I feed myself motivational quotes?

Is there any iOS equivalent to the fortune app? I've got a list of quotes I really like. I'd like to be fed one a day, ideally using the notifications feature of my iPhone, but I'm up for email as well. Do I need to roll my own for this, or is there an existing solution out there?

Bumper stickers with a single "M"

I've started seeing these round "M" bumper stickers around my part of town a lot, usually black, but today's was blue. I haven't been able to get close enough to read the url, and Google image search hasn't helped, unless people are super-into advertising the Paris Metro. I realize it could be anything, and could be regional, but does anyone know what they represent?
