I’ve been a smoker for about 13 years now. I picked up the habit working in the newspaper industry, which is high-stress and filled with people who turn to all sorts of vices to relieve said stress. When I developed TMJ disorder due to that stress, I couldn’t really afford to treat it properly (another ...
As a neurodivergent person, I have a number of unique ways of thinking and processing information. I also, occasionally, suffer from depression. Gaming provides a great respite for me (along with writing code, photography, and a whole bunch of other things). Sometimes, however, I need something a little different.. Something with a delivery that has ...
Hi. My name is Will, and apparently, one of my emails is in the data from the Epik breach. I’m writing this for two reasons: One, in case someone gets clever enough to find me and attempt to shame me for being associated with Epik. The second is to share a little bit of knowledge ...
As someone with chronic health problems, I’m all too familiar with a number of medications, both over the counter and not. Throughout my entire life, I can’t even begin to count the number of medications I’ve taken, from when I was a tiny little kid to now. Prednisone is one that I’ve taken countless times ...

That’s a big deal for me; not only do I always have strong negative reactions to them, but I also suffer from severe trypanophobia (due to some childhood trauma that I’m not going to dredge up right now). Thankfully, they were rotating in the Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccine, ...

Congratulations, Quincy IL. We’re now a COVID-19 hotspot. Wondering where the rest of the post is? Well, I decided to leave a rather vulgar rant up for about 12 hours, and now it’s gone. I said my peace. The graphic, however, you can enjoy (I’m getting a test print of it on a t-shirt soon, ...
So, I had one of those fun first-time-homeowner experiences today. Specifically, at 1 AM today. A tree fell on my house. Not really all that interesting for most of you, but that’s the reason why there is no new Ghost Recon Breakpoint video this weekend. You’ll have to wait until next weekend for stuff on ...
When you take a look at what runs the web, you’ll find a very, very large portion of sites are running WordPress. It’s insanely popular; from the small blog dedicated to cat pictures, to some of the biggest news websites, WordPress powers a great deal of the web in regards to CMS of choice. I ...
I’ve known Steve Bohnstedt for years; I first met him when I worked at the Quincy Herald Whig, where he was a photographer. He’s incredibly passionate about his work, and talented, to boot. After I left the Whig to go work for another part of the Quincy Media company, I ended up working with him ...
