Character Records

Keeping your dramatis personae straight can be a chore. Back in the day, when I played Dungeons and Dragons, my favorite part of the game was creating characters. I know, it’s weird, but, there it is. I don’t know what it was about filling out the forms, either the ones we created or the fancy […]

Building Resumes

No, I’m not talking about building the skills that go on resumes, but the resume itself. For reasons that are best left unexplored, I’ve been thinking about resumes lately.  Specifically, writing them and formatting them.  It’s a chore.  And, it’s hard to do well, frankly.  For example, I’ve been using the same basic resume format […]

Style Maker

Hopefully, you all won’t be too disappointed to not see links to a bunch of other blogs today. I hate to admit it, but I wrote this at the last minute because I’ve been so busy.  So, if you all think this is lame today, well, I don’t blame you.  I’ll try to do better […]

Regular readers here will know that I’m not only security and safety conscious, but into, well, some of the stranger aspects of culture.  If there’s an obscure method of self-defense, or a strange sub-culture, I probably know about it.  I tend to be that way with […]

Canon Quick Guides

Since I started shooting digital, I have always shot Canon, in spite of what some of my shooting buddies may have thought. And, naturally, as a faithful Canon shooter, I’m anxiously awaiting the announcement from Canon HQ tomorrow, whatever it may bring.  As I’m in the market to upgrade, I have mixed feelings about any […]
