Not an End of Year Reflection

In Geek, Personal

I was going to do one of my traditional “reflect on the year” thingies, but it occurred to me that there’s not much point. I have actually done very little this year that I intended to. Oh sure, I finally managed to get NinjaLinks in… read full entry →

New Year, New Habits
