About Me

My photo

Tech journalist since the dark ages. Windows Secrets, LangaList newsletter, Windows Magazine (NetGuide, Home PC), Byte, Popular Computing, yadda yadda yadda. Google me, if it matters.

This feed is mostly personal interest; it's NOT my professional writing. There's tech here, yes, but also lots of general science and some politics and weird humor thrown in.

Another punctuation mark you've never heard of: the \sartalic\.

Sartalics are backwards-leaning italics, meant to convey sarcasm or irony.

Most fonts don't have sartalic alphabets, so backslashes are sometimes used instead.

Oh, \great idea!\
