This week’s blog theme is “currency” and as such, this week I’m highlighting “Empire Builder – Currency Generator”. Currency, is for many many cultures, an important thing as can be ingrained into almost every aspect of life, sometimes a bit too much.

But it can also be, for some, a form of art in itself, with many varieties of shapes, designs and more, to the point that some individuals will collect them, not because of what its “worth” but because the design is rare, unique or just aesthetically pleasing.

In other related news, things have settled down with regards to the site – the SSL was successfully installed, and things *should* be faster now, but I’m having to go slower than I hoped due to health, but some progress is still progress!
