New Site Up! (Arguably It’s About Food, Someday)

Okay, it’s not anything to do with food, unless I write a mystery that involves cooking. (Now there’s an idea; hmmm…) No, this is the newest, and soon to be the best, boutique site about novel writing on the whole InterTubes: The Accidental Novelist. The plan is for plenty of blog posts, of course. […]

Comment Spam Fixed; CU Open to New Comments! Watchdogs Sent to New Homes…

Okay, maybe this time the Elves have gotten things under control. (I found a way to get the job done quickly. Just take away their beer and pretzels, and cut the cord on the TV. Then promise to bring it all back when the problem’s solved.) The several watchdogs the Underground has been using […]

Remodeling Under Way; Pardon Our Mess

Chile Underground Goes Mobile; World Leaders are Awed

Well, folks, it’s finally happened. The Web will never be the same, either. To top it all off, we’ve even beaten that “other” Underground, the one that talks about fish and other weird stuff, to the punch!
