The Conclusion Of Mike Cane 2008

December 31, 2008

PullTheStrings

Pull the strings! Pull the strings!

And for a year, I have.

I had no frikkin idea what nearly a solid year of blogging would be like.

HeadHurts

Dear God. I am wiped out!

Starkers

Some days made me absolutely fucking insane. Even without Simvastatin rotting my mind!

And now I have reached the end.

Two bits of advice before I go.

The first for dealing with the financial chaos of 2009:

AdviceOne

The second for every writer and would-be writer out there:

AdviceTwo

And that’s all there is.

Thanks to everyone who stalked this blog, irregularly popped in, and also linked to it.

My online presence will now flatline. I’ll likely — maybe — pop up on Twitter for reaction to MacWorld Expo and CES introductions.

But a new blog? I have no plans for one.

I need rest!

We race towards Zero Hour here!

HourZ

There are less than twenty-four hours left to this blog!

“But,” people ask, “What will you do after this?”

My fingers will still be busy:

With a series of children’s books!

The Happy Stabby Family!

There’s Junior Stabby:

Papa Stabby:

And Uncle Fun Stabby:

Oh, I just know you’re all waiting for this! I can tell.

I can feel your reaction through my screen:

StopNow

All of this is my kindly way of saying:

MYOB

Avanti!

Look at time flying!

(Yes, it’s earlier than last night’s post. So I messed up! Shut up!)

There are now just two days left to this blog!

Soon my frenetic fingers will cease.

Always Do A Scan.

I had something really slowing down this PC today.

I ran Ad-Aware 2008, because that’s the fastest triage scan. avast! anti-virus takes the entire day.

And, lo! There was a trojan downloader!

Quarantined, rebooted, and better.

I’m taking most of the blogging day off.

And there are now only ten calendar days remaining to this blog.

Minus Christmas, only nine days.

Blog Notes: Another Short Day

Bleh. I’m not pleased by this. But an afternoon appointment looms.

When I get back, I hope to do the blog post for Leverage episode 3.

Meanwhile, the hell with global warming. Did you know our magnetic field is dying and we might turn into the next Mars?

Weep or dance. Your choice.

I have an afternoon appointment that will probably devour the best blogging hours.

Only fifteen days left to this blog anyway.

Well, minus no-blog day of Christmas, only fourteen.
