Simple Pen Art

After 22 comics and graphics released, I’ve decided to name this webcomic Simple Pen Art. It’s a pretty general title because I like the freedom to do comics on whatever without format contraints. Hopefully you find them thought-provoking, interesting, or sometimes just funny.

Error 2013 with Seagate FreeAgent backup

Deleting Facebook

I deleted my Facebook account a few days ago. It’s not really an earth-shattering event for me: I spent less than 15 minutes a month on the site. What was really interesting about my account there was just how many of my friends and relatives were my “Friends” on the site. I never sought out [...]

iPad Tablet First Impressions

I just went to the Apple Store and played with the iPad which was just released a few days ago. Here are some first impressions: Compared to the iPhone, it has a large screen but not a particularly high resolution screen(1024×768).

A bit about binary

Blogger is ending support for publish-via-FTP and because it is costing them valuable support time and they claim 0.5% of active blogs publish this way.
