How Not to Get Help From a Help Forum

This post is a parody of my “How to Get Help from a Help Forum” post. Since some people find themselves offended by it, I thought I would create a special set of rules and guidelines just for them.

If you don’t understand what parody is, please don’t read this post. You’ll just get your …

…and it looks like this:

I have no idea what to do with it. Just put it on some stickers and then put them all over the place, maybe.

monetize your pets…

In May of 2010, I signed up for Google Adwords and placed them on my main site, my bookblog, and, once I got it going in December of 2010, on this blog. I never expected to make a living from adsense, much less a fortune. After all, what you earn per click is small, and …

How to Get Help from a Help Forum

I participate in a lot of help forums on the internet, and I was recently made a moderator on the Graphene theme for WordPress forum, which has been a tremendous opportunity for me to help others. This post is based on those experiences, both asking for help and giving help. While some of the advice …

upgrade day, apparently…

I’ve been trying to get some computer tasks done in between my OCD duties, like going through my inbox

where I have accumulated almost 1300 messages (I know the clipping above says 1233, but I’d already cleaned some out) since I started working at the aluminum factory. So far, I have been asked to …

how did that happen?

I didn’t have to work Sunday, which meant I had Saturday night off (I’ll explain that later), so I brought my checkbook up to date (depressing) and balanced it for the last two months (also depressing), and then feeling I needed (and deserved) a little pick-me-up, I did a short episode (number five) of Project …

last night’s podcast

Well, folks, I really wanted to post another episode of Cherry-flavored Pez last night, but that didn’t happen, as you can tell.

Last night, I got home, started up the Mac, started up GarageBand, and realized that none of my loops were there. WTH?

As it turns out, I had done something terribly wrong to …

a very good day on FB

Today is my birthday, and all day long I’ve been getting “Happy Birthday” on my wall on FB. Well, actually I only got that for half the day, because a couple of months ago I freaked out and upgraded my security settings and inadvertently made it impossible …

Google and Les Paul

When a special event occurs, Google will show a special logo on its home page. Click on it, and it brings up a search on that topic.

Today’s special event is the birthday of Les Paul, who was born on this day in 1915. Instead of a picture, it’s a postmodern electric …

ask me about ASCII

A long time ago, when computers were actually used to crunch numbers and keep track of data, and weren’t considered entertainment, people still found ways to amuse themselves. Hence, ASCII art, which was often used as a signature for email.

ASCII, for those of you who don’t, refers to the limited character set that computers …

RFB: Episode Twenty-Seven – in which WW reveals that he also uses GarageBand

Because I have a Mac, I use GarageBand for recording podcasts and such. It’s a complicated process, because I have to record in GarageBand, export to iTunes, find the mp3 file, and ftp it to my media server. Terribly complicated. Surely someone that is far smarter than I am, like Wil Wheaton, could do better.

Radio Free Burrito: Episode Thirty-One – Radio Free Burrito

Wil Wheaton says:

I’m sorry for the inconvenience, and I’m very annoyed by it, but I can make a podcast, or I can be a bug-squashing code monkey. I can’t do both, and I quite frankly prefer making the podcast.

via Radio Free Burrito: Episode Thirty-One – Radio Free Burrito.

Oh, God. I’m afraid that …
