We supported Twitter, Facebook and Github. While developing the site, my concern was that the registration flow be simple, and that it actually work. Once we launched the site, I realized that I had trouble remembering which provider I had signed up with. Sure, on the backend we can link multiple accounts, but that means users went through the registration process multiple times. This is not optimal. This is the primary argument for using social auth.

The Prologue of this nifty, tongue-in-cheek little novel explains how, during the golden age of men and gods, Zeus became enraged at the lazy humans who took the gods for granted and removed fire from the earth as punishment. Prometheus, the Titan, stole the fire from Mount Olympus to give back to mankind, which is why Zeus hunted him down and had him chained to a rock so an eagle could gorge on his liver each day. What you might not recall is that Zeus finally set Prometheus free, and as a reminder of his misdeed, made him caretaker of a small wooden box filled with all the miseries that would bring torment to mankind if someone were to open it. And then he married. And then he had a daughter. And then. He threatens Pandy and the whole class with punishment if they do not garner at least one bronze medallion at tomorrow's judging of the annual school project, with this year's theme being "The Enduring Presence of the Gods in Our Daily Life.
None of the minor incidents in our naval history has inspired so many writers as the Mutiny of the Bounty. Histories, biographies and romances, from Bligh's narrative in to Mr. Becke's "Mutineers" in , have been founded upon it; Byron took it for the theme of the least happy of his dramatic poems; and all these, not because the mutiny left any mark upon history, but because it ranks first among the stories of the sea, instinct with the living elements of romance, of primal passion and of tragedy—all moving to a happy ending in the Arcadia of Pitcairn Island. And yet, while every incident in the moving story, even to the evidence in the famous court-martial, has been discussed over and over again, there has been lying in the Record Office for more than a century an autograph manuscript, written by one of the principal actors in the drama, which no one has thought it worth while to print. Though the story of the mutiny is too well known to need repeating in detail, it is necessary to set forth as briefly as possible its relation to the history of maritime discovery in the Pacific.
