Thanks to all those who downloaded wallpaper yesterday, and to all those who made others aware of it through social media. It’s much appreciated. I’ll be sending along a few gift certificates as a means of expressing gratitude.

An Interview on Productivity – Matt Perman recently interviewed me on the subject of productivity. It’s at his blog if you’re interested.

Sheen vs Gaddafi – This is fun. It’s a quiz that asks you to figure out who said some pretty crazy lines. “The US actor and the Libyan leader have produced some choice lines recently. Can you distinguish between them?”
