Closure and The Eclipse Effect

August 3, 2013

The great part about writing a blog on WordPress is that the site is sophisticated enough to work backwards – I can not only tell how many people are reading the blog, but the site lets me know how they found it.  Using this function, a few [...]

Date Ten – Mr Twenty40

August 3, 2013

No Picture
I’m Ten Dates into Thirty, and if there’s a lesson I’ve learned in the first third of this challenge, it’s that Friday night dates after a week of serial dating and speed-dating probably aren’t a great idea.  Last week [...]
