I'm writing this from a hotel in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Two weeks ago I would never have guessed that I'd be here now, but life is funny that way... I had been nominally looking for a full-time job since October when I got back from my trip to Great Britain. I hadn't actually gotten around to applying for jobs; a few recruiter cold-calls had led to a few interviews last month, but nothing panned out. Then, the weekend before last, a friend and...

The other day I used a slider to have G+ notify me about all Friends posts.  I want to slide that back down to where it was, but I can't find the slider again!  Help?

Not going to be there, but I have many a nerdly friend there as I am from Miami. If you are looking for something to do I could ask around.

Andrew Plotkin reveals the plan behind our IF Comp '11 metapuzzle.
IFComp is over, and it turns out I entered this year! Cold Iron placed fifteenth of 38 entries. It's a tiny little game -- so if you're hungry for Zarf IF, you can either be disappointed that it's so small or happy that it only took a few days of my time to write. But I think it's pretty good, and reviewers seem happy with the quality of work (if not the quantity). But there's more to the story than that. I collaborated with three other Boston I...
