Quickie Boilermakings For 2/17

I received some good news last night. SB Nation, as a thank you to this being so explosive with all you guys visiting and coming back for more, has upped my monthly stipend a second time. So, thank you, everyone. I cannot say that enough. They have also allowed for a second paid contributor for the first time ever, so that is something else I am working on nailing down.Basically, Hammer & Rails is the most successful SB Nation site where one guy does the vast majority of the work, so if I can get a second paid guy on board, like many other huge sites have, we can make this place even better.

Again, this is not all me, but on you guys for making this place so great. Now, onto some links:
