Way back when I was just a little bitty boy living in a box under the stairs in the corner of the basement of the house half a block down the street from Jerry's Bait shop…

You know the place..
More adventures in publishing today, both in the online and print spheres. Why are they spheres, anyway? I don’t think I’ve ever read a perfectly rotund magazine… but I guess they are technically circulars.
*tumbleweeds blow by*
Thanks, folks. I’ll be here all week. Judge ye not the Salmon.
macworld1207small.jpgIf you’re enjoyed this terrible pun, you may also like other works by this author. Consider, for example, the December issue of Macworld Magazine, a magazine so revolutionary that it actually prints the cover date of the month in which it comes out on the cover! No, I don’t know why they don’t all do this — they just don’t. Anyway, this month’s Macworld is predictably a Leopardstravangaza, except for one rogue columnist, who chose to use his valuable podium to talk about flooring staples. And that rogue columnist would be me. Today, still wanted by the government, I survive as a freelancer of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find him, maybe you can hire…the Alex.*
Alex can also be found online. Consider, for example, these reviews, live over the past couple of days at CNET.com.au:
Navman S90i: “We’d love to heartily endorse the S90i but, like the spurned high school prom queen in every slasher flick ever made, its surface beauty is marred by intermittent spurts of insanity, and so we can’t…”
Altec Lansing Orbit-M 360: “Five years ago, thanks largely to the efforts of a certain fruit-themed computer company, every man and his dog was releasing products with an “i” prefix..”
*Alex clearly needs coffee and sleep and jelly beans and games breaks and sex and all the other things he’s had to do without this week in order to get anything done. The saga of the road trip is comin’ real soon — I promise…
