Brandon Wilson last shared their writing Costco coupon
"Do you need to stock up on toilet paper? It's on coupon right now."

"Sure might as well."

"You can just take it out of the cost for those racks I asked about."

"I can't find the one you sent for $34.99. When I search for that exact one on Amazon, I see...

The Man With Three Laptops

I know it doesn't sound as cool as The Man With the Golden Gun. Nevertheless, I have become the guy who travels with three laptops. 

The primary laptop is the MacBook Air of course. It is my primary writing tool, after all. By the way, the M1 processor is worth the...

Seven screens

I shared a picture with folks in the 200WAD migration Telegram group showing my home-office set-up dubbed "Mission Control." I stepped back and counted the number of screens that I sit in front of on a daily basis and that number is seven.

My iPad mini and iPhone are with me...

The scary thing about the coronavirus is that you might be just minding your own business and end up getting it anyway. You could be peeping into your neighbor's window or rummaging through their trash. Maybe today's the day you take a few packages from people's porches. Here you are,...

When I went off to college in the fall of 1999, I had already decided on a major. Math was my favorite and most challenging subject in high school. For some reason, I wanted to be a college professor even though I had minimal interaction with them. I was also...

Who are the people using email read receipts?

Every now and again I click on an email and see a message that reads "XXX requested a read receipt be sent when message YYY is read. Do you want to send a receipt?" I always click no.

Who are the people using this feature? If I send an email, it's...

Enough with the lazy writing

I have decided that there are certain types of headlines for which I will never click on the story. They contain the following phrases:

"...the Twitterverse explodes."

"...and Twitter is not having it."

"...and Twitter erupted."

I guess it boils down to any headline with Twitter in it.

What these "stories" usually entail is someone...

Nurse and Nuke buttons next to each other

I miss cool music videos. In the music video for Land of Confusion by Genesis, Ronald Reagan is depicted as someone who lost his marbles. I think it's accepted that he was suffering from some type of dementia toward the end of his presidency. At the end of the video, it...

AutoSave screwed me

In a situation last week, NOT having AutoSave screwed me much to the chagrin of abrahamKim . AutoSave is a must-have when writing on the web. The AutoSave that screwed me was the one rolled out to Microsoft products within the last couple...

Christmas cards are a waste of time

I was having a conversation with my girlfriend yesterday, in which I reiterated my belief that most Christmas cards are a waste of time. 

Why go through all the hassle to buy generic Christmas cards, sign your name, address envelopes, attach stamps, and mail these out? All just for me to...

Tunnel vision

A buddy told me a story of a time when he visited some friends in Texas. He stayed with his friend who was living with a girlfriend at the time. The two decided to play a prank on my buddy by sneaking into his room, pulling down their pants to...
