Hello again.

This is a followup to my previous blogpost where I detailed my immediate re├Ąction to a sudden and (yet somehow not) total loss of my data to a hard drive crash.

Life Comes at You Fast · 11:20pm Oct 18th, 2022

So.

Some of you, mainly over on Discord, might've been wondering why I kept a near-total comms blackout over the last two weeks.

The Children of Planet Earth - Equestrian Dialogue Translations · 4:05pm Dec 15th, 2021

I've written a lot of Equestrian dialogue in this story, but never bothered to translate it in the story itself. I wanted to leave it a mystery for the reader -- and besides, from my experimentation I found in-story translations to be rather tacky. But now that it's complete (including the paper explaining the phonology, grammar, and so forth), I think it's high time to pull the curtains back and show the reader what the hell the ponies have been saying all along.

With Humility and Hope · 2:32pm Jun 9th, 2021

First, I'd like to open this blogpost by reminding you that Fimfiction's development started ten years ago on this very day. Feel old yet?

That said. . . .

An Open Letter · 3:03pm Dec 30th, 2020

For almost seven years, I've wanted to write a particular fanfiction. I've gravitated to similar stories, but they all have their own shortcomings. Even the classics and the most technically adept have their flaws in one specific department -- which motivates me all the more.

Well, I Guess That Takes Care of That · 4:32pm Jun 17th, 2017

Almost two years ago, my browser, Google Chrome, started acting up on me. No matter what I tried to access, the "He's Dead, Jim!" error kept popping up. No rhyme or reason to it.

Today, on a whim, I relaunched Chrome. . . no issues. None at all. It works flawlessly.

I'm still sticking with Vivaldi. That thing where you can group tabs together is so cool.

Good night, and good luck.
