I am the first result for “snail in a turtleneck”! (Okay, not terribly surprising.) What was really entertaining was the ads it generated, though: Target: for the finest in snail turtlenecks.
I was eating lunch today and reading my RSS feeds. Every half-dozen spoonfuls or so, I’d look at my bowl to plan my next phase of attack, but mostly I was just reading the blogs. Near the end of my soup, I looked down and saw a big clear chunk on my spoon. Now, I’veContinue reading “Soup and Circus”
I was looking at real estate listings today and there was one place that had “1.1” baths. I’ve heard of 1.5 baths, but what’s .1 of a bath? A bidet?
I saw a video today about how Microsoft imagines 2019 to be. It gave me the idea of how to do a better RSS reader, which is something I’ve been thinking about for a while. It’ll have a main page with snippets of stuff in sections like a newspaper, and you can click on aContinue reading “RSS Idea”

So, IContinue reading “Pain in my CVS”
Someone at work showed me http://www.wordle.net/create, which is cool. Using this blog’s URL (one whole post!) gives: which I suppose it mostly accurate. I think this blog will be less about CURRENT in the future (even though that sounds… strange), and more about cartooning, Linux, reading, and stuff like that. If I remember, I’m goingContinue reading “Nifty Flash Thing”
Usually I discover new comics by reading a recent one I like, then starting from the beginning and reading the whole oeuvre. Unfortunately, I’m often not connected to the internet. So, if you like my comics: Email me and let me know. Artistic insecurity knows no bounds. Use this handy-dandy shell script to download themContinue reading “Downloading the Archives”
