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.

Something you don't see every day.

Yes, it's a low-quality photo --- shot in a hurry through a window screen --- but take a look:

It's a bearded man, wearing a wig and a garishly colored fat suit, buying lunch at a food truck.

You see, there's a medical tech school near where I live, and part of the training involves teaching students how to manage plus-sized patients.

That's a good thing --- but it does lead to some very strange street scenes!
