Oops

It was bound to happen.  It was probably inevitable.  Still, I made it more than halfway through the year, so that’s something. After multiple updates to my blog and forum, I finally managed to obliterate my discussion board two days ago.  Poof!  Gone. Oh, the files are still there.  The directories are still there.  I… Read more »

A little bit of mish, a little bit of mash

Before starting this scintillating public blog, I used to blog more “privately” (it was still accessible by anyone who cared to look, I just never “advertised” it).  Occasionally, I would hit a day when I didn’t have anything that would take up an entire post, so I would blather a “potpourri” blog that day.  I… Read more »

I laugh so as not to weep

Yes, this was supposed to be on Friday, but these things happen. If you’ve been following along up until now, you’ve noticed the tone of the posts is usually light.  Even the occasional rant (such as Thursday’s) is hopefully accented to the positive.  That’s obviously on purpose. With the recent disaster in Japan fresh in… Read more »

This space for rent

I was about halfway through a long blog on memory when I stopped to reread it and discovered it was utterly boring. This creates quite a problem, since I can’t think of anything interesting to fill the space here today and yet I have committed to daily blogs.  That leads to the question of whether… Read more »

Briefly

It came to my attention after reviewing the recent blogs that many of these posts are long.  Given that some of you possibly have lives outside my website, I am designating this week as “brief post week”. There may be some cynical people out there that say this is nothing more than a transparent stunt… Read more »

Is it plagiarism if I do it to myself?

I’m on record (right here in this blog) saying I’ll keep to a strict daily blog for a minimum of the weekdays (there’s always the possibility of a bonus post over the weekend).  That’s a commitment I’m happy to keep and, while I have many topics that I can cover, another thought struck me during… Read more »

It was funny when I….

You can fill in the blank…wrote it, said it, thought it.  You know, you had to be there. The funny thing about trying to be funny is that the only thing you’re absolutely sure of is that you thought you were funny at the time. There are plenty of times when you are telling a… Read more »

Withholding comment

Time once again for our continuing series of random ponderings on life in cyberspace.  Today’s chapter:  Life as a website admin. Being but a tadpole in my writing career, I reasoned it would not be likely to need an administrator of my blog and message board.  Until I built up some mass with substantial sales, it… Read more »

A blog a day keeps the cobwebs away

It has always been my intention to make this a “daily” log.  That is, post a blog every weekday and take the weekends off.  After all, you aren’t going to be logging on here during your two valuable free days over the weekend just to read my prosaic musings, riveting though they may be.  No,… Read more »

Did I just type that?

Let’s hop in our way-back machines today and take a short trip.  What’s that?  You don’t have a way-back machine?  Well, you can all pile in mine, but keep your feet off the seats please! Our journey is a quick one this time, just about a year and half ago.  I was given the time… Read more »
