Review: Daughters of Freyja (negative stars, really)
I don't have a thing against self-pubbed authors (or vertically integrated, or whatever the appropriate term is these days). What I do have a problem with is a book that proports to be a genre (and erotica) novel that doesn't pass even the most basic "smell...

There are a lot of these kinds of poorly thought out, poorly executed books, particularly in the erotica genre. Any single author will have dozens of similar cheap, short, and bad books out there.

That's what Chuck Tingle is spoofing so well, actually.

It's not difficult to avoid books like this - the cover, the typography, the 'blurb' at least give a truth-in-advertising warning, so I don't even really consider these part of true self-publishing.

Review: The Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard K400 Plus
I used Kodi to turn my old laptop into a media server attached to my television. It's a really nice setup, and well worth it. It doesn't require a new top-of-the-line system, either; this eBay search should show some systems that will work well enough in th...

The Positive Point Of Being Able To Be Hurt
Earlier this week, I got hurt. It was a very specific kind of hurt. While it resembled garden-variety hurt that happens to nearly everyone, nearly all the time, this hurt was tailored . Due to specific circumstances, it was very clear, and very obvious that...

Three tools that will help you save money automatically, without effort.
So as you may have guessed from my last post about how I'm using Remember The Milk now , I've been messing with how I'm reaching the goals I've had all along and making them more deliberate, more mindful, and more focused on what I want to achieve. And part...

Just a quick status update: I'm probably depressed. (READ THE POST, NOT JUST THE HEADLINE)
This post is just a recognition that I'm about to hit a point where I've crossed of most of the criteria for major depression.  It's not - repeat FREAKING NOT - a cry for help, a request for sympathy, or anything of the sort. If you feel it's absolutely nec...

Changing the way I do chores with Remember The Milk
