I’m Over Here Now [FAQ]

As of last Friday – the only place to get regular updates from me is here at rizzn.com. Change your email address for me to guesswho@rizzn.com. Unfortunately, given the amount of buzz going on around the tubes at the moment, I can’t publicly address or answer...

Get Off My (Virtual) Lawn!

Just another cynical observation today, but it seems that with the election out of the way, and all of us settling into a routine of living in the world of our current “Great Depression,” it’s time to trot out the tired old tropes of the social media...

5 Friggin' Fantastic Blogs

BlogDay this thing thought up by some folks who want bloggers to honor bloggers. I’ve been blogging since the 90s, and this is the first I’ve heard of it. I’m pretty much already on the outs with anyone who owns a computer, these days, since...

Elite Tech News #11: Hot Coffee Pods

Hey Rizzn-ites, I figure, since I’m posting here regularly, there’s no reason I shouldn’t use this personal blog platform to pimp my other podcast as well, Elite Tech News, to all four of my readers (or is it five? Steven, did you ever subscribe to...
