Badvertising – Nice Rack

Recent travel dictated that I purchase a PC rag to read while waiting through endless security checks. Normally, Blurbomat would not include in it's gallery of bad ads those in the rear of a technology based magazine. However, this one crossed the line. Far be it from...

Office Space

Recessional times demand a certain action. Like most of my ilk, I'm shoring up on the client-side of things, hiding out and holding out. This means taking a job at a company who actually needs what I do. It also means that I'm no longer older than the CEO. It means...

Softlaunchtm

This is the unofficial pre-soft launch of yet another useless website. The beauty of this site: no ads, no 80 link nav, no 70 column layouts taken straight from print design. Who are these people kidding? The web has been around 9 years and we still are cramming more...
