The Gigcast Year One Birthday Show!

I just want to say, thanks, thanks to every one who has played a part, in what can only be called, a success. I’m talking about The Gigcast making it to one year, without missing a week.

No one is more surprised at this as I am. Believe you me, if there is a reason for me not to do something, I’ll find it. I’m good like that, just ask my wife. So the fact that we’ve hit one year, must mean that this little project means …something.

Hey! Wapsi Square Book!

I'm supposed to be gone for awhile right?

Nevertheless I'm very excited - and wanted to post that Paul Taylor has a book out collecting several years of Wapsi Square. (With a foreward for the book from fellow BLC'er Dave Kellett).
