of zines and hard disks

Pleased this week to have received two different mags in the post.

First came Perhaps I Am Wrong About The World (something I have never been) with a really awesome issue crammed full of great poetry etc.

Then I received Bacopa, the annual publication of The Writers Alliance of Gainsville with a very professional and well put together volume. Bacopa, by the way, is the water hyssop, which is a plant.

On another note. Hitachi's current hard disks suck monkey balls. Seagate Barracuda, however, are marvelous disks. Sometimes I open the computer just to pat them and tell them how much I love them. I have three Seagates and one old Hitachi, from when Hitachi were good. Actually I have a fourth 2TB Barracuda but haven't bothered to put it in the box yet.

And if you're stupid enough to buy Western Digital disks, then I'm ashamed that you are reading this blog.

Mung Being 38

Mung Being 38 is going to be themed "time and age." Now I have lived a long time and am thus very old, so I shall be in that one too. Here is some info and stuff by me in their present issue, which came out many eons ago, on a planet far, far away.

Amazon dogs

Well, my new chapbook is now on sale at Amazon, which is cool.

Even cooler is that in Sweden kick ass as an ISP, and have the most pleasant and competent support, EASILY. So I now have ADSL here and, thanks to the b43 module and a borrowed and antique Belkin Broadcom PCI card, I have wireless working. Strictly I shouldn't need the firmware separately since I have the 37 kernel, but I still use an old kde-3.5.10 install, since I prefer a Gentoo that I know won't mess around, so it was easier like this.

A note to others on the Internets. There are no bad wireless cards, they all work. What there is, though, is plenty of retards saying "this doesn't work" instead of "I can't make this work."

Hanging Johnny

Today received a copy of Hanging Johnny 2 from Skrev Press - it's been produced and designed really well, and it can be ordered here. It's a great magazine from a great press.
