Kevin Hall, Kickstarter and catching up

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 06:56:55 +0000

I’ve noticed a lot of bloggers who write sort of potpourri posts from time to time.  I think I’ve written a few in the distant past.  Hard to believe I’ve been at this – at least intermittently – for over 12 years now.  I want to bring everyone up to date on what’s going on […]
