The lack of posting

March 17th, 2008

Hi everyone (all four of you by this point),

As you’ve noticed, there haven’t been a lot of posts here lately. Between one thing and the other, things have just been a little too hectic. Work is very busy, and there’s a lot to do at home as well.

Hence the last thing I need is another distraction, such as a blog. So I’ve decided that I’m going to take a more substantial break – probably until early August. If anything really strikes me between now and then I’ll post it, but otherwise expect very little.

In August I’ll probably come back with a new format for the blog too, tweaked to make it a bit easier to keep up with things.

So I’ll be back in August. Unless I get some really good idea I just have to blog about, that is.

Teller (of Penn & fame) and the Las Vegas zombie rising.

Really fantastic production values for only 36 hours from start to finish.

Sketching time

An Ektch-A-Sketch converted into a digital clock.

Makes me wonder what a creative mind could do with a spirograph.

More US Political analogies

The candidates as AD&D monsters.

A little bit too balanced, actually. I rather suspect these would work well to play…

Losing a MacBook Air

Steven Levy loses his new laptop:

As humiliating as it sounds, let me repeat: the MacBook Air is so thin that it got tossed out with the newspapers.

Given the usual state of my home office, this doesn’t actually make me more likely to buy one…
