So, the general shape of blog posting around this time of the year is in the form of “my five predictions for 2007” and in discussing site statistics for the calendar year. I’m not going to bother with predictions; but I’m going to walk through my statistic through the year and talk about what I was doing in the way of marketing and how those activities impacted my site traffic. It’s been an eventful year, as these statistics fairly clearly […]

So, what with the holidays, moving, and all those wonderful things one gets up to sometimes, I’ve had very little time for writing. And there are a few other things I fell down on, too… For example, next week I’m going to be at SES Chicago. I managed to get my plane ticket squeaked in there…but didn’t get around to calling the hotel until last night — and there aren’t any more rooms. Whoops. So…anybody need a roommate? Or know […]

And it’s a great excuse to talk about one of my favorite authors, so I’m taking the liberty of going thoroughly off topic. This one, I picked up from Emma, who picked it up from ThePickards. The rules: Grab the nearest book. Open the book to page 123. Find the fifth sentence. Post the text of the next 4 sentences on your blog along with […]

That is, an Uninterruptible Power Supply. Why? Well, on Saturday I had a bit of a power failure: in the middle of working on a project. I didn’t lose much…but I did lose some project work. Frustrating experience… So, now I have my own little battery backup: 45 minutes of continuous power. That should give me plenty of time to save my work and shut down! Comes complete with handy-dandy auto shutoff software (which I have not yet installed). Its […]
