February’s Fecund Sausage

I am a victim of my own success. Yay me? All of the Prohibition Orcs and OpenBSD Mastery: Filesystems sponsor gifts and rewards and kickstartings and preorders are fulfilled. My plate is clear to make more words. Except for filling out the tax paperwork, that is. Last year I waited until early March and the […]

January’s Jammed-Up Sausage

Welcome to 2023. So far, it has little to say for itself other than “Lucas still has poor scheduling.” But this time, it’s not my fault. Last year was thin on books. I shipped DNSSEC Mastery 2nd edition to print backers last spring. Letters to ed(1) came out, which didn’t seem to merit a mailing […]

December’s Diffident Sausage

I’ve said a bunch of times that my Patronizers make a big difference in my life, and it came into focus this morning. Y’all give me tooth money. Bad teeth don’t run in my family, they gallop. I brush, I floss, I use the water-pik and the fluoride and the 12-horsepower gum sander, but my […]

November’s Narcoleptic Sausage

Ah, November. The time EDT becomes EST and everyone in Michigan goes to sleep. Michigan is in Eastern Time, which is the same as New York City. We’re six hundred miles west of them, so our experience of Eastern Time is very different. I’m all for the Sun being overhead at noon, but that happens […]

Tiny Silly Useful Patronizer Freebie: “To Serve Orc”

A bit of an odd one, but I promised some of y’all copies of everything and this is part of everything. I’m giving it to everyone, because “Beans with Found Meat” is delicious. One of the stretch goals for the Prohibition Orcs kickstarter was a collection of recipes. Not many recipes, mind you, but recipes. […]

October’s Onomatopoetic Sausage

I have spent my life looking for a valid excuse to use the word “onomatopoeia,” but at last have settled for an invalid one. The deadline for tech reviews on “OpenBSD Mastery: Filesystems” is one week from now. I’m already looking at early comments and wondering what kind of idiot I am. Part of this […]

September’s Scrambled Sausage

Woke up this morning and realized I hadn’t posted this month’s Sausage, or scheduled the video hangout. Oops. This month can best be described as “overload.” I’m writing the very last chapter of OpenBSD Mastery: Filesystems, and as usual it requires me to go back and fill in missing tidbits from earlier. “How the system […]

August’s Agonized Sausage

August 2022, two and a half years into Covid, and all is as well as it could be. I mean, society’s decided to ignore Covid, and to pretend that monkeypox is an STI rather than a wildly infectious bacteria that can be transmitted by touching a shopping cart, but other than that everything is dandy. […]

A note on the orc Kickstarter

Hi folks, There’s been some confusion about the Prohibition Orcs Kickstarter, so I’m making a standalone post. There’s no need to back the Kickstarter to get the rewards you’re already entitled to. If you back me at Digital Reader or above, you’ll get a copy of the Prohibition Orcs collection and novel. If you back […]
