ppI love ecto, but that goat lice post nearly broke it. I don’t know what the problem is. I’m taking this moment of relative calm in the yurt to see if I can do a little troubleshooting…./pbr /

There’s been some problem at my webhost, massive spamming or something, and their servers are all clogged up, thus preventing me from getting into my control panel and stopping Akismet, the spamblocker on my blog’s comment section, from working. So I’ve been getting gobs of spam, masquerading as comments, to weed through every day. God, [...]
…and nearly wet myself with my geekgasm!
(It’s the one in the middle, between my beloved ipod touch, and my also beloved macbook. It’s a triumvirate of apply goodness!)
EXCEPT WHO THOUGHT OF THAT STUPID NAME???? I mean, really. iPad??? It sounds like something you use when you’re on the rag. [...]
A while ago, back when I first got my ipod touch (how did I ever live without it?), I wrote a post about gaming on the ipod with my kids. (ETA: for part three, go here.) At the time there seemed to be very little out there on games for little people, [...]
The time has come to reveal that lately, here at the yurt, we have a secret identity, a secret purpose, one we take very, very seriously.
We kill zombies.
I know I previously commented on a lack of zombie action here in yurtsville, but all that has changed in the last few weeks. [...]
I realized yesterday, with a start, that my thinking about books has shifted to a digital model, without my noticing it had happened. It freaked me out a little because, hey, I’m a book lover. My standard answer to “what do you want for [birthday/christmas/holiday/etc]?” has always been BOOKS. Or, in the last few years, [...]
This weekend my poor, traumatized blog was hacked again. Repairing the damage takes all the energy that would have gone into creating cool blog posts for y’all. So, sorry things have been dull around here for a few days. I don’t really want to increase my knowledge of blog security by a power of ten, [...]
Picture me, running around the yurt with my arms up in the air shouting “Go Me! Maya Rocks! Woo HOO!!!!”
That was the situation last last night when the google malware alert was lifted off my poor, victimized blog. Malware FREE. I mean, I had to learn a bunch of tricky tech stuff, and talk [...]
I’m hardly an expert, but a friend asked me the other day, after reading my one year anniversary post, what my thoughts were, at this point, on blogging. Heck, having a blog is all about spouting one’s opinion, right? So here you go…
—They say to have a single topic blog, and I get that. [...]

- "Dusi's Wings" April, 2003. . . . "One thing fantasy can do for us is to give shape to the mysterious in the world; another is to make emotional yearning concrete. The early sections of "Dusi's Wings" do just that...there was a strong grasping towards the spiritual in fantasy here that was very promising, and I look forward to reading more by Lassiter." --review, Tangent Online.
