  • Happy 2018

    Here we are, New Years Day 2018! That is a whopping 4 years since my last update here… That is due to many factors, some seemingly contradictory. I mean, some of it is laziness, some of it is lack of time, some is the fact that a bunch of my websites got infected with malware […]

  • Way to go PTC (again)!

  • Postcard Exchange: First Arrival

    Here it is, the first arrival from the 20SB Postcard Exchange. It’s a classic Sci-Fi card to boot, cool. I was starting to get worried that I was not going to receive any cards after I sent out all of mine.  This one came in from Catherine over at SaidtheCat. According to her card I […]
