Fool Me For The Nth Time, Shame ^Nth on Me

Unbe-freakin’-lievable. The client who screwed me back in October called and, sure enough, gave me an assignment for an article that, just as I predicted, they now needed ASAP. Because I was hopeful that this would allow my context-sensitive image-resizing code to see the light of day, I agreed, working 12 hour days and through last weekend in order to clear out the time to write the thing. And then… yep, they delayed the article.

Well, fool me once, etc.

Mamas, don’t let your babies grow up to be freelance writers.

Tor.com is giving away eBooks of apparently-well-known authors. It’s been a long time since I’ve followed SF, but “free eBook + Kindle” is too good to pass up. So far, I’ve received:

  • Old Man’s War by John Scalzi — I’m reading this now; it’s kind of like an updated Starship Troopers with a sense of humor.
  • Spin by Robert Charles Wilson
  • The Outstretched Shadow by Merces Lackey and James Mallory
