Let's Get to 1 Million Signatures

Don't Back Down
As of today, our petition to #LetGaryDebate has been signed by more than 860,000 supporters. 

Help us reach 1 million and we will deliver them to the Commission on Presidential Debates.

The CPD may have excluded us from the first debate, but we can still get on the stage in October.
Yesterday, for example, a poll shows us at 14% in Pennsylvania, up 2 points from less than 2 weeks ago -- despite our name not being included in the top line of questions. And we are polling 15% or higher now in 15 other states.

Already Signed? You can still help get us there:
Share Petition on Facebook
Tweet the Petition
There is no doubt, we are the ONLY campaign with upward momentum.

That's why more and more respected leaders continue to call on the CPD to #LetGaryDebate.

They know that we are the ONLY campaign that is offering an honest and positive alternative to the Donald v. Hillary hate fest.
Johnson - Keep Fighting
There will be more debates. There will be more polls. And we fully intend to fight our way onto the stage in the second debate.

Taking on both aisles of the establishment is not easy. But we can do it.
Hillary will call Donald an egomaniac. Donald will call Hillary a crook.

We will keep making history. We will get on that debate stage.

And America will have a brighter and more positive future.
Chip In $15 to Help Us Promote the Petition

I Won't Back Down,

Gov. Gary Johnson

PS: Tell the CPD that America will not be silenced by making a contribution of $15 or more to #LetGaryDebate.

WordCamp Pittsburgh 2016

WordCamp Pittsburgh is just a few days away, Saturday, September 17! Read on for some important information to help you get the most out of WordCamp


The Liberty Bridge will still be closed, so if you are coming from south of the city, please consider alternate routes and plan for extra travel time due to traffic. The venue address is below if you need to use Google Maps or your preferred navigation system to assist with directions. The posted detour signs might not be the best route for everyone.

Also, the Liberty Mile race will be happening Saturday Morning and will impact Penn Avenue, Liberty Avenue, and 11th street. Please refer to the course map and we recommend avoiding those streets. http://www.libertymile.org/Files/Admin/2016-Liberty_Mile_Course_Loop.pdf


Art Institute of Pittsburgh
420 Boulevard of the Allies
Pittsburgh, PA 15219

Please take a look at the Google Street View of the venue - http://goo.gl/GpvYIz
The doors under the address are locked, you'll enter the building through a single door to the right of those (the door with the white awning to the right of the photo, near the flag). This entrance does require you to go up a short flight of 3 steps. If you can not do steps, motion to the security guard in the window and he will open the accessible entrance (you'll find the ramp at the doorway in the center of the building, under the address)


There are many parking lots around the Art Institute, but we recommend the following garage, which is right across the street from the Art Institute and only $6 for the day:

InterPark Garage
200 Smithfield St.
Pittsburgh, PA 15222

*PLEASE NOTE - garage entrances are on Boulevard of the Allies and Cherry Way (not on Smithfield Street)


Registration will take place between 7:45 and 8:30 in the Art Institute Lobby, just to the left of the entrance.

If you arrive after 8:30, follow the signs to the silver elevators (straight back from the entrance), and proceed to the fourth floor, room 421, to pick up your badge.


Want to plan your day? Review the session schedule: https://2016.pittsburgh.wordcamp.org/schedule/


Breakfast: light breakfast of pastries

Lunch: Turkey or Ham Sandwiches with chips, fruit and cookie. Vegetarian, Vegan and GF Veggie wraps are available for those who selected those options when you purchased your ticket.

Snacks: A variety of snacks will be available mid-morning and mid-afternoon

Beverages: Coffee, tea, water and pop (soda for the non-Pittsburghers) will be available all day


Please join us for some snacks and drinks after the conclusion of WordCamp at Sharp Edge. The After Party is walk-able from the venue (0.6 mile away, no need to move your car), but if you do choose to drive, the closest parking garages would be the Ninth & Penn Garage and the Convention Center Garage. Your WCPGH badge is your after party ticket.

Sharp Edge
Bistro on Penn
922 Penn Avenue
Pittsburgh, PA 15222


WordCamps are casual events. Dress comfortably and plan for air conditioning indoors and a chance of rain outdoors. All WordCamp events are indoors, but you may want an umbrella if you choose to walk to the after party.

Pen & Paper - You'll learn lots of new things, and we doubt you'll be able to remember everything!

Laptop - optional - If taking notes electronically is more your speed, feel free to bring your laptop. Wifi and charging areas will be available. You'll also want your own laptop if you plan to visit the Happiness Bar for assistance on your site.

Mobile Phones/Smart Watches - we encourage you to share all that you are learning via social media with the hashtag #wcpgh. We will source some of the best photos from Twitter for a slideshow at the after party.

Device Chargers - we will have extra power and charging stations, however you will need to bring your own charging cables. Power will not be available at every seat, so please bring your devices fully charged.

Mobile Hot Spot - optional - Wifi will be available, but when you pack 100+ WordPress folks in one place, tech can be unpredictable at times. If you must be connected to the internet at all times, consider a hot spot.

See you on Saturday!

LiveCode 8.1 Released: Fast Networking and sFTP Support

8.1 is available now and has a ton of great new features for you.
View this email in your browser

8.1: A Major Minor Feature Release

We are delighted to announce the release of LiveCode 8.1. As the first significant release post 8.0, it has a raft of important new features for you as well as refinements, enhancements and the usual herculean bug squishing efforts.
New Networking Layer
This release brings you a vast improvement in the networking speed and capabilities of LiveCode. The new tsNet networking layer, included in LiveCode Indy and LiveCode Business, can speed up networking operations anywhere between 3x and 250x, depending on the type of operation. As it wraps the existing networking commands you will not need to rewrite any code, you will automatically benefit from this improvement. The new layer also adds support for additional protocols such as sFTP, SMTP and TLS. For full details please go here.
Auto include inclusions
Have you ever had the experience that your app works perfectly when running in the IDE, but when you build the final standalone it suddenly stops working? Was it because you forgot to include some vital component that your app needed to run? If so, you are not alone. 8.1 to the rescue. It now automatically searches for and includes any extensions or libraries your app needs. Read more about this new feature here.
Goodbye Quicktime
Also in this release, for multimedia playback, the Player Object has been replaced by a new player object using Directshow instead of Quicktime. Dependency on Quicktime is removed by this new player. Read more here.
LCB Enhancements
The Infinite LiveCode project has made good progress, with consequent enhancements to LiveCode Builder. Variables now get initialised by default, unsafe blocks and handlers can be used to flag sections of code that do dangerous things, and you can even include raw bytecode if necessary.
Love for the IDE
The IDE has lots of other upgrades, too: a keyboard-navigable Project Browser that highlights any scripts that failed to compile, a beautified dictionary user interface, and access to the message box just by starting to type. It even colorises your script as you type.
New Extension Added
You can now access HealthKit on iOS to integrate activity, sport and health data on iOS devices (requires an Indy or Business license). Additionally, the SVG widget has new scaled width and height properties, and the Line Graph widget now supports a scatter plot of data and a variety of new styles.

And Even More
There are dozens of other smaller features added in this version, explore the release notes for an exhaustive list. Worth checking out:
  • GPS location history system for Android and iOS
  • list files and folders without changing the current folder
  • "filter" now works on arrays
  • extended new "return" syntax lets you write functions & commands that set "it"
  • appropriate resize cursors now show when dragging to change stack size 
Fixes and enhancements
157 specific fixes and enhancements were made between LiveCode 8.0.2 and 8.1. Since the release of 8.0 a grand total of 220 bugs have been fixed, leading to a better, smoother, happier coding experience.

This release is now available from your LiveCode account, or you can download here
