I wants me one of these

Nothing much


I don't have anything to post about, but I have been catching up on a lot of webcomics lately. Here are some of my favorites, in no particular order.

Primarily, they're scifi or geek related.

Have fun!

I have a WatchGuard Firebox (the original model) that was picked up at a computer recycler after they were discontinued. They were special at the time for being an early corporate adopter of Linux.

What does one do with all the empties after the weekend-long party?


Why, recycle it, of course.

More things that keep one awake at night.

Just how does one properly alphabetize the band The The? Would it be listed as 'The The' or 'The, The'?

Things you gotta wonder about...

One of those things I often wonder about - in those sexual dysfunction and STD commercials, do they actually use actors that have the given problems? And if not, do they have trouble getting dates afterward?

I don't know how writers can stand it..

Sometimes this writing thing is annoying as hell.

I head off to sleep last night after replaying the first two campaign scenes in Warzone 2100. I lie there for a bit, tossing and turning..

Then this story idea I had dreamt a while back started fleshing itself out and wouldn't let me get to sleep, so I wrote it all down in the notebook I keep by my bed.

I try again to sleep but cannot. It absolutely insists that I put it in the computer with the rest of my notes. Now!
