Back into Business

I’ve finally, finally managed to move the blog to this account. So not only will new content be added, but I can finally get rid of the backlog of links that’s been housing several generations of digital dustbunnies.  (OK, that only brings joy and happiness to me and my browser.

Edgar Allen Poe Wall Art

On Etsy there are always interesting things to find. This is a print / print compositon to decorate walls.  (At first I thought it’s a decal, but it turned out that I was wrong.)

However, if they don’t change their attitude towards copyrighted material, chances are they’ll be out of business soon. (They offer prints from movies / fairly recents posters.)

What did you do all day?
