Walking WMD

Thanks to my job I am now “walking WMD” as @tefft puts it. Smallpox, anthrax and a hepatitis cocktail.

Standing in line all day thanks to my decision to revisit every aspect of my will, insurance and powers of attorney, I came to the firm decision to buy some sort of e-reader. I was previously merely strongly inclined. I’ve pretty much ruled out the Kindle, because of the DRM, lack of support for other formats without crazy service-based conversion, clunky design and general antipathy for the company.

I was fortunate enough to have Napolean’s Pyramids with me to read. It’s not great but easy enough to read in a loud room while standing in line for eight hours.

Mea Culpa

To acknowledge my failure as a blogger, repent, and recommit myself to a life that walks the walk, and blogs about it in tedious detail.

Many frustrating things going at work, mostly consisting of my subordinates losing valuable items. It doesn’t exactly redound to my credit.
