Full Disclosure

So, how’s that whole “write more/complain less” thing working out for me?  Well, I will readily admit I haven’t been able to write something new Every. Single. Day. I’m eyeballs deep in a brand new work project that has me writing software like a maniac. Or a fiend, even. Possibly even a maniac fiend! But […]

A Haiku For Web Development Nerds

Spent my day knee-deep, Model View Controller-ing Brain’s gone all to mush.

Everything You Need To Do Regarding Net Neutrality But Maybe Didn’t Realize

Unless your neighbors mostly consist of those rolly-poly bugs and you generally only see the light of day if a giant comes by and lifts your home up off the ground, odds are good you’ve at least heard the words “net neutrality” at some point recently. More importantly, though, you might not know what it’s […]

Games Writers Play: Seven Lines from Page Seven

A few days ago, I was tagged in a one of those chain-style Facebook memes where someone is chosen to do something very specific and then post evidence of it a status update, at which point they’re free to tag some non-zero number of other friends, family, and/or in-laws to carry on the cycle. In […]

Search Terms, Revisited

To the best of my recollection, it’s been something like a geological epoch since the last time I mustered up the courage to delve into search phrases in my web stats. I do this periodically because I have this tendency to use…unusual…turns of phrase in posts form time to time, which Google categorizes with what […]

Pictures worth 400 words

As is so often the case when that first week of real work in the new year rolls around, I find myself swamped worse than Luke Skywalker looking for a 900 year-old Jedi Master. How bad could it really be, you ask?  Well: My task list at the office stretches from here to Narnia, and […]

I call BS on the G-I-F

I’m taking a very very brief moment out of today’s work-family-oh-did-I-mention-it’s-the-last-day-of-school-writing-like-a-panicking-fiend schedule today to address something very very near and dear to my heart. Just in case you weren’t aware, the internet is as full of animated images as your aunt Glenda’s house is full of cats, mothballs, and canned produce that looks like snot.  […]

Weekend Debate: Kindle Fire HD vs Nook HD Tablets

I’ve been contemplating writing a post for quite some time about the Nook HD versus the Kindle Fire HD.  Since we have one of each, I’ve definitely formed an opinion about which one I prefer to use on a daily basis. Admittedly, there are many different facets to this particular topic of debate. Some people […]

Things that made me smile: catching-up on literary things

It’s suddenly come to my attention that I’ve somehow recently shared next to nothing about the current state of my author-ly pursuits.  I mean, I did little but badger you poor readers about writing back in November (well, when I wasn’t trying to ignore everything blog-related competely) as I worked feverishly* on my NaNoWriMo novel.
