On a trip to Ireland this week I visited the Cliffs of Moher. Since my last visit, the new vistor centre has been built and is quite impressive. Booking online before-hand is a must to secure a free place in the car park and a reduced entry rate. It was funny to see the many tourists ignore the warning signs and hang out over the edge amid huge wind gusts to get a selfie, eek! the photo above is of the Branaumore sea stack, the poorer cousin when it comes to photographed landmarks at the cliffs.

Charging For Your Work

This is a good story by Ibrahim Diallo about how he quoted $18,000 to build a single HTML page and got away with it, or rather, he quoted for all the time the company took to give him what he needed to build the page.
