Work was slowing down, then the economy happened. "More with less" makes a pithy appeal to my language nerd side, but it kinda sucks when it actually *happens*. Still, as many have pointed out (to the point that I want to punch random people when I overhear them in public -- because they are, inevitably, the loudest people in the room), things are great because I "still have a job..."

...for now.

In other news, I really, REALLY enjoyed this recent post by Neil Gaiman on entitlement and the creative process.

Other things I've enjoyed recently:

This xkcd, which not only made me laugh out loud, but also amazed me that the punchline never occurred to me, even after being so engrossed in the software development lifecycle for the last couple of years.

Patrick Rothfuss' blog

The name, adventurous spirit, and (above all), the writings of Radigan Neuhalfen. (Warning: some content may be NSFW.) I found one of his blogs through a random google image search for foreign driving licenses (no, I totally don't remember why), and was entranced by his command of language and sense of humor.

I have jumped on the Dominion bandwagon, mostly thanks to [livejournal.com profile] doctorconquest and [livejournal.com profile] shardavarius. Am contemplating the "chip deck" idea I've seen posted a few different ways online. Anyone actually tried this yet?
