If you're feeling generous - Auckland City Mission Christmas Appeal 2012 

- Become Someone's Angel

Donate now and make a difference. Click here to donate online.

Every day the Auckland City Mission sees people who, despite their best efforts, struggle to make ends meet. They are forced to choose between a doctor’s visit or putting dinner on the table, paying the power bill or buying groceries. Often coming to the Mission to ask for help is an absolute last resort.

Each Christmas the Mission supports thousands of people who have no-one else to turn to. Throughout December we expect to provide 2000 emergency food parcels, distribute approximately 20,000 Christmas presents and host around 2500 people at New Zealand’s largest community Christmas Lunch. This work is only made possible thanks to the wonderful generosity of our donors.

This Christmas we are asking Aucklanders to support our Christmas appeal and ‘Become Someone’s Angel’. Angel wings will be appearing all around the city, offering people a novel way by which they can support the appeal, while visitors to Silo Park will get the chance to add their own Christmas message to Auckland on a giant tree of Angel Wings.
Keep your eye out for the wings around the city and Become Someone’s Angel this Christmas by donating to the Auckland City Mission.

JGT note - you do not have to be a Kiwi to donate. But if you prefer something closer to your region, please consider making a donation to your local homeless shelter or Salvation Army instead. There are so many people out there who need a helping hand. It IS the season of giving, after all.

JustGoodTunes FAQ's

This blog will not return.

How long has this blog been around? 
Our official birthdate is July 27, 2006.

What's the password? It is at the top of EVERY page!

Your password doesn't work! Help!
Just copy & paste it. It always works. Make sure there are no extra spaces.

The archive is damaged/file won't open. Help!
Try re-downloading the file. Sometimes it stops before it finishes and you don't notice it. Also, make sure you're entering the right password.

How do I unzip the files?
Winrar is great.

The link is deleted/file not found. Now what?

I see a cd set with no apparent links. Why?
Hover your mouse over "Disc 1:", "Disc 2", etc. The links are embedded.

About Page Errors:
If you get a page cannot be displayed error or similar, this is a problem with your PC and/or connection. It has nothing to do with us and we cannot help you.

*Special Notice*We have seen people stooping to stealing our name and posing as us to make it appear as if WE posted our links on their site(s). Sometimes they include a link back to some other website or blog. We have NEVER posted without the password. We do not post on any other site but Sharez. If you see anyone else posing as JGT do not be fooled - it's a fake!
*Update* We have actually seen a site selling our FAQs! This is craziness!!!

Website of the week - Silent (Film) Era (1890's-1929)

Revisit such greats as Fritz Lang, Clara Bow, Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks, Mary Pickford and so many more. Everything you ever wanted to know about silent films is here. For the REAL oldie lovers! You can use the translator to see the site in any language. Or help identify unknown films with any information you may have. Isn't it sad that this information has been lost for so long? (Click information tab at page top to see the lists/sections of unknown films.)

Website of the week - Open Library

"One web page for every book ever published. It's a lofty but achievable goal.

To build Open Library, we need hundreds of millions of book records, a wiki interface, and lots of people who are willing to contribute their time and effort to building the site.

To date, we have gathered over 20 million records from a variety of large catalogs as well as single contributions, with more on the way.

Open Library is an open project: the software is open, the data are open, the documentation is open, and we welcome your contribution. Whether you fix a typo, add a book, or write a widget--it's all welcome. We have a small team of fantastic programmers who have accomplished a lot, but we can't do it alone!"

Want to help? Be sure and read the FAQ's for how it all works!

Wacky Wednesday is on temporary hiatus - while we celebrate Japan's Disaster Prevention Day!
Have a fire drill with all your friends! Attend a reptile anti-venom making party. Go around removing doors from old refrigerators (for the children!) Buy yourself a new Richter scale. Assemble or update your typhoon survival supply kit. And as always, be on the lookout for Godzilla!
