This Blog Is Officially Dead

I’ve spent several days reviewing all of the posts here.

This is not something I want to continue. It is, mainly, all wrong.

If there’s ever another blog, I’ll pay WordPress the damn US$48/US$84 (1 yr/2 yr) fee to get rid of the damn ads. Looking at this site as a reader, I’m disgusted by all the ads WordPress has defaced it with. And I think most people think I want the ads there and am making money from them. Not so!

Farewell, readers. And thanks for your attention.

And again, go read the posts at iPeople. I am pleased with it and hope to get back to it.

I don’t know yet.

The Fight For The Aviation Black Box

This story has everything:

  • tragedy
  • making an unusual connection
  • seeing things differently
  • short-sighted opposition
  • secrecy
  • determination
  • vindication
  • changing the world for the better

This little-known inventor has probably saved your life

If I find you talking to anyone, including me, about this matter, I will have to sack you.

“Addiction Is Profit”

You can’t make the average person buy a course. But you can ruin the life of the ones who do.

R.I.P. Radio Host Don Imus

Don Imus, Legendary ‘Imus in the Morning’ Host, Dies at 79

Imus was loved or hated for his caustic loudmouth. Outspoken in an age of political correctness, his often coarse satire offended sensibilities. Yet his listeners included those whom he often ridiculed. His call-in guests included President Clinton, Dan Rather, Tim Russert, Bill Bradley, David Dinkins, Rudy Giuliani and political analyst Jeff Greenfield, who once remarked, “He’s out there talking the way most of us talk when we’re not in public.”

Whether you liked him or not, you can’t deny he wasn’t an original.

And that’s what really matters in this world.

Rest in peace.

Past Posts: eInk Screensavers

These two posts were published in 2011(!) at Mike Cane’s xBlog:

Screensavers For eInk eBook Devices

More eInk Screensavers

Back then, eInk eBook readers mainly had screens of 600×800 resolution.

Today, the new Likebook Ares Note has a screen at 1404×1872.

So, I’m not saying those old posts will necessarily be useful (I didn’t check out what they link to — so beware of possible 404s) but perhaps they will give people some ideas to create their own.
