Viruses and Spam in Real Life

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

After receiving a spate of spam and questionable emails, I’ve been thinking. What if real life interactions were more like these messages?

Ancient Cartoons

The other day I was digging through my writing archives, looking for a Windows 95 screenshot. I never did find the exact image I wanted, but I did stumble across something no one has ever seen before.

Avoiding Writer’s Block

Filed under: Main — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

In my process of furiously writing text, the goal is to finish the document without suffering the pains of something called “writer’s block.” I don’t suffer from writer’s block. That doesn’t mean I don’t get it from time to time, I just know how to best deal with it.
