Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) - tax break in the UK

I've just commented on Business Insider article...

London - The City With The Most Opportunity Right Now

(technically speaking I live in Cambridge, 45 minutes by train which is not that bad at all)




Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS)

Tax relief for investors who buy new shares in your company.

I had a discussion on Makespace email group (Makespace is a community workshop / hackerspace in Cambridge):





I would really like to be your local contact in the UK.

Setting CORS (cross origin resource sharing) headers in node.js express app

There is a question: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7067966/how-to-allow-cors-in-express-nodejs





The essential part was here:

app.configure(function() {
// has to be in that order ! ! !
app.use(cors());
app.use(express.static(__dirname + '/static'));
 
// will NOT work like that
// for files served statically
// (it took a little while to figure it out)
// app.use(express.static(__dirname + '/static'));
// app.use(cors());
})
I encourage you to use Nitrous - reflink - because you are up and running in no time, think jsFiddle jsBin codepen plnkr for node apps. On this occasion Rubber Duck method proved itself useful (as always) so no silly questions posted to StackOverflow.
