+Another month passed by, another update. I'll try to keep this on monthly basis:
+
+
+`mr.bob <https://mrbob.readthedocs.org/>`_ does your project skeleton templates. Today I
+`released <http://mrbob.readthedocs.org/en/0.1a6/HISTORY.html#a6-2013-01-02>`_ *0.1a6* which introduces
+`hooks <http://mrbob.readthedocs.org/en/0.1a6/templateauthor.html#hooks>`_.
+It allows you to hook into various places of the rendering flow. Before/after a question is asked and
+before/after rendering of directory structure. It's also a cleanup release before last missing piece
+is implemented - dependance between templates. I also updated my
+`bobtemplates.ielectric <https://github.com/iElectric/bobtemplates.ielectric/>`_ templates to be used
+with newest ``mr.bob 0.1a6`` release. There are already few packages using it, for example
+`bobtemplates.niteoweb <https://github.com/niteoweb/bobtemplates.niteoweb>`_ and
+`bobtemplates.kotti <https://github.com/kotti/bobtemplates.kotti>`_.
+
+
+`29c3 <http://events.ccc.de/congress/2012/Fahrplan/>`_ - every year at the last week of December,
+Hackers organize a conference in Germany. Those are the
+people tinkering tools in a way they weren't designed. In most of the cases it results in security holes.
+There were way too many interesting things to note here, going from
+`brewing probiotic beverages <https://events.ccc.de/congress/2012/wiki/Brewing_probiotic_beverages>`_ to `Hotel card
+door hacking <https://events.ccc.de/congress/2012/wiki/Hotel_Door_Unlocking_Kit_Assembly>`_,
+mostly aimed to inform general public about issues we have to face when considering security.
+This year there was a lot of political movement around privacy and neutral net. There are estimations that
+the new data center NSA is building in Utah could crack 1080bit RSA keys in ~year, parallelized for thousands
+of keys in a row due to batch algorithms. I very recommend skimming 29c3
+`schedule page <http://events.ccc.de/congress/2012/Fahrplan/>`_ and at least watching the
+`keynote <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNsePZj_Yks>`_ by
+`@ioerror <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNsePZj_Yks>`_.
+
+
+`Products.TinyMCE <https://github.com/plone/Products.TinyMCE/pull/40>`_ - quite a short patch to add
+a feature of "adding an image by external URL".
+
+
+`django-akismet-comments <https://github.com/iElectric/django-akismet-comments>`_ - got tired of all
+crappy Django solutions to provide `Akismet spam protection <http://akismet.com/>`_ to Django
+commenting framework. Still lacks a command to clean current spam comments and a way to flag
+comments as spam/ham that will teach Akismet to be a better filter.
+
+
+
+If you have an interesting problem to solve under public license, I'm happy to hear from you at domen@dev.si :-)
