Do You Have the Addled Font?

May 28th, 2010

What’s that funky, grumpy font style in the header above? Cool, hu? It’s called “Addled” and it’s a free TrueType font available at most free font library sites.

Lazy, Good for Nuthin’…

May 28th, 2010

Lazy Bum!It took years to finally redesign this website and what do I do??? I let the damn thing sit for another 2+ years to do anything else on this site. Every time I come here for something, I see what little I have accomplished. It’s funny too, because I think about stuff to write and post here all the time. Do I do it? Of course not.

Grump’s Pissin’ an’ Moanin’ Blog

January 31st, 2003

My first blog entryNestled in the nether regions of My Documents was a copy of the first blog post I ever did.

What you see below is word-for-WordPress. ;) The only thing I changed was the email link at the end – it now links to my official contact page. Sorry. I know it’s bad, but remember, this was new to me in 2003 and still new to the World Wide Winternet back » Read the whole entry »
