For Your Holiday Shopping Convenience

December 7th, 2010 by Tom Johnson

Because I know you’re busy, I’ve created a new category for the blog: Gift Guide. ¬†Call it one-click shopping, at least until Amazon’s lawyers send a cease and desist letter. Instead of having to browse down through all the other crap, you can just click on Gift Guide category over in the right-hand column, and [...]

Oops

August 26th, 2010 by Tom Johnson

The really attentive among you may have noticed a piece posted here for 23 minutes that is, in fact, a draft of something not yet postable. It had lots of sentence fragments and paragraphs set aside for later use. It was, in short, entirely incoherent. Sorry about that. Pushed the wrong button.

Two Ways to Change a Blog

March 3rd, 2010 by Tom Johnson

The Wine Whore changes the blog but not the title: The best way to keep people coming by the site to read about my affairs, is to make them more intimate and personal. That doesn’t mean that I am going to ramble on for hours about my cat… it just means that I am going [...]

Not That I’m Bitter

January 28th, 2010 by Tom Johnson

Here in the Bunker

January 11th, 2010 by Tom Johnson

Louisville Juice is enduring a huge comment spam attack at the moment. Viagra is exploding all around and the blog is under constant fire from Cialis and Levitra. I’ve deleted more than 100 bogus comments in the last two hours. These comments have not been posted because first-time comments have to be moderated. Because the [...]

Thanks

January 1st, 2010 by Tom Johnson

Serious person Tom Wark says incredibly nice things about this blog, here, a couple of paragraphs down. Now I’m going to start thinking before I write things and ruin everything.

We Take Baby Steps

December 5th, 2009 by Tom Johnson

I went back to my old political blog to do a little housekeeping and discovered that six months after my last post there it’s still getting six times as much traffic as this blog. Technorati Tags: blogging

Comment From Yoda

December 2nd, 2009 by Tom Johnson

“In it something is. Thanks for an explanation!” Just to recap, because I get a ton of comment spam — much of which, like the above quote, seems to come from non-English speakers — first-time comments are held until I approve them. Once you’re approved, comment to within an inch of your life.

Pinky Promise

December 2nd, 2009 by Tom Johnson

I was doing a little techno-cleanup on the blog today that had me rolling back through the archives and I noticed¬† something. I’m on a statistical binge right now. I’ve got data and pie charts and all kinds of numerical outcomes, but no tasting notes and nothing even a little bit funny. So, from now [...]
