The clicking is deafening!

I’ve been updating my Link Din stuff. Every interaction with someone causes Link Din to automatically prompt you to send a thank you message. Thing is, I’m the kind of person who does that anyway. Doing stuff on Link Din feels like when your mom told you to do something polite that you were already […]

I forget something new every day

I never noticed before how close the words “buffet and “bugger” are if you are typing.   That’s pretty handy. Keyboards must have been designed that way on purpose.

The Upside

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

Yeah yeah, “search is awful.”  I say it every day, so often that I bore myself–and I think every word I say is FASCINATING, so I can imagine how it must be for people who aren’t, you know, on my level.. This park has both swings and roundabouts though. First of all, most people never […]

I made a meme! It’s mine, but you can have some!

The Black Squier–Update

Saturday, November 7th, 2015

More pressing of words, less booking of faces. This is an update to an earlier post about my beloved E-series Squier Strat from 198something.  It might be of use to you if you are thinking of modding or rehabbing a Stratty guitar. Since that post, I’ve done the following: Started playing in a band called […]

“Generously proportioned” at best

Friday, October 17th, 2014

We got a promotional flyer in the mail from yet another car dealership, which looked kind of like a free raffle for cool prizes. And right at the top it said that it was “Cars for the Cure to support the American Cancer Society.” It’s a nice looking piece, tri-fold, card stock, four color printing.  On the […]

Origin story

Monday, August 18th, 2014

A friend on the social medias asked about the origin of the Penguin character.  I’m not absolutely sure if this is completely correct, but the wonderful thing about comic characters now is that there are so many story streams and reboots, and delivered in so many forms, that accuracy kind of doesn’t matter. Besides, no […]

Something about getting a “charge” out of this

Monday, August 12th, 2013

Most big batteries (like the batteries in laptops and tools and phones) are actually just a bunch of smaller battery cells wired together. It would be very useful, and a lot less wasteful, if there were a set of standard battery cell configurations that rechargeable batteries could be built out of, and batteries were built […]

Free to read

“What is ‘RSS?’”  Pooh asked, as if he’d forgotten how to use a search engine, which once again, he had. “It’s short for ‘Rich Site Summary’” said Christopher Robin, though he liked to tell people it meant “Really Simple Syndication.” But he just couldn’t be mean to his friend like that. “All the new information […]

We like to go out for home-style cookin’

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

Kids, please. You have GOT to calm the hell down, because you are making the Ineerweebs boring by whining about the same things over and over, every time a big shiny new movie comes out based on a book or a comic or something else that you care about. And it’s only going to get […]
