Fictional exchange: please design a logo for me →

When emails fail to save
No surprise that my op–ed hasn’t run yet: it was a half-baked, draft version. It’s weird, because I edited the piece straight on the email program (Eudora 7) and saved it, then sent it to a contact at The Dominion Post. I discovered today, when copying and pasting it to my own blog, that the very important additions that meant the difference between it being a self-promotional piece for my own...
Some mayoral graphics

Here’s how the web and print editions look now, compared to my ﬁrst Tumblr post in January 2008.
Technology failed me elsewhere
Tumbling because Vox.com has really pissed me off—I’ve tried combinations of three computers, two cities, two ISPs, two browsers. And I cannot compose, add photos, add videos or do anything except comment on my own and others’ blogs.
