Yesterday, Google+ asked me (in the way that a copied letter slipped under a door is asking), to post about something I can't live without. Not the usual Valentine for a current partner or for a sought other, but some other core of my existence. I decided you, my blog audience, might be interested in … Continue reading This Also…
Jaspar Fuzzy-Breeks, Jarl of Sofar, Chare, and the Boxen Isles, stretched. Winter had come to Ut-Garden, bringing cold and damp to the very sill of his hall. And, as they did every year, the thumb-giants had failed to drive it back. Una the Deep Meowing counselled yowling at the winter, but Jaspar favoured a different … Continue reading Raiding the Giant’s Horde
To celebrate another year of service to the little fuzzy gods, here's a picture of them claiming the sofa.

Remote support and training gain most of the advantages of an on-site presence. Furniture that changes shape in response to the user? No more fiddling with handles to obtain … Continue reading A More Fluid Interaction
Last weekend was the third anniversary of them moving in. In celebration, they spent the day sleeping on us, bunting at us, and playing cat chess. So, much like any other day. As I was under cats, I couldn't post on the day, so here's a belated celebration of their first three years here. From … Continue reading Mischief Continued
This morning I found myself faced with two questions: am I the smartest one in the room? and do I want to be? I was reading a book yesterday in which someone was described as the smartest one in the room. As my wife was in another room at the time, I was struck with … Continue reading Fuzzy Thinking
