I love Vincent. Best animal character ever.


Got paid by Gardner-Webb today. I think I’m making about $2.23 an hour to teach!  Yay capitalism.

Mysterious Universe

I listen to a lot of podcats. I’ve done a lot of podcasts as well. I’m always getting asked which marketing podcasts I listen to. My answer is none. They all suck (well, except for Fraser’s and Shawn’s). I need to give WebMasterRadio a try again, I guess. But, I do love Mysterious Universe. I’ve …

I’ve Unleashed Waynebuntu

I’ve converted my wife, my mother in law, potentially a Lutheran priest and now Wayne Porter.  Ubuntu will never be the same again after Wayne gets through with it.  What have I done? I need to send him a hat 🙂 My old IBM Thinkpad X40 (story below) now sports this O/S and it screams …

Thunder and Snow?

Mom just sent this over on email… “It thundered in the winter time yesterday so that means so said papa carroll that it will snow or sleet within two weeks we will see.”

It Don’t Get Easy

I don’t even feel like writing today at CostPerNews. It’s not burn out or disillusionment… it’s just my own reservations about the place becoming something other than a blog. Is it already too late? I’m having to watch my tongue there and keep on the correct side of the line. Is there room for honesty …

Marketers Disappoint Me

Where did it all go wrong? Affiliate marketing, especially.  So much promise and potential there.  So much good that can and should be done with such a powerful, democratic and individualistic platform. Stupid money. Someone restore my faith in marketing (online or offline) … please?


Wayne is thinking of switching one of his boxes over to Ubuntu. What are you waiting for, Wayne?? Even Anna uses it and seems to like it. At least her laptop is much quicker than it ever was with XP and she can do (just about) anything with it that she could do with Windows. …
