Interesting PR Spam/Malware

I received this innocous looking “infographic spam” email (I get a LOT of these, we never publish them). It demonstrates why I use plain text when sending email to prevent spam, malware etc. I was going to send a polite reply when I noticed this text in the response. I see this because I always […]

Features I Want In the Next Apple iPhone

A cheaper price. Nothing else. Thats it. You see, I don’t need a new iPhone. Because a better camera won’t make much difference to my photos. Longer battery life isn’t a problem.

Warren Ellis on Proof Reading in MS Word

I hate Microsoft Word. I loathe it with an special passion I have for things that never work, bugs in commercial software, and the fact that I have to use the worst software because “lowest common denominator” always wins. Dammit mathematics how come you rule everything in my life. Proofing NORMAL, the novella.  Proofing, these […]

Blogging Success Is Simply About Doing

You can be guaranteed that nothing will happen if you publish nothing. I can guarantee that something will happen if you publish something. After you are publishing something, people can find you. And you can improve. And you can work out what can be done better. And then iterate. Nothing beats that feeling of people […]
