The first random 10.

Thursday, May 3rd, 2007

I am of course waiting for it to explode in my ears or catch fire or whatnot, but I finally gave in. Stupid new music technology. Horribly cute little practical thing. I own an iPod. R. would be so displeased. So far all I can manage to hate are the default headphones. Dammit. And, of […]

Three notes, briefly.

Saturday, January 6th, 2007

If I thought I had no time for blogging before… (a) Writing an epic. Finally found the beginning I’ve sought, and it’s going well. Book one is well underway.

Geekery in the house of geekery

And in the course of the half-dozen years or so I’ve been there, I’ve always had a couple of different machines, much like home. Though at work they’re actually separate boxes.
