Casual Acceptance of Bullying is Rather Horrifying

So this is somewhat embarrassing, Google's failed me. I cannot find the radio commercial that prompted this blog post, although I do have a reasonable memory and can recall portions of it. So any quotes here will be paraphrased from memory. Apologies.

Note: If you know what commercial I'm talking about, I'd appreciate if you can direct me to it online or if you remember what company did it so I can include that here.

It's the "smartphones are like tutors" commercial which has some pre-teen sounding girl complaining about a series of historical figures. Things like, "Alex Bell posted again. Just because he invented the telephone doesn't mean he can blow mine up all the time"

Now, that quote is from my memory, but complaining about historical figures isn't the "bullying" that I'm talking about. It comes later.

Really?

My app review of "Juggernaut" is twice as popular as the next most popular post...IT'S NOT EVEN A GOOD GAME!

-_- (double-posted on twitter due to brevity)

Thoughts on the new look?

Although the inner me tends to try to do everything in black at first, I am not completely immune to the demands for an easier-to-read blog style. Thoughts?

I'll be customizing ApocalypseDesigns.com to follow suit with this. Thank you in advance for your comments!

Just got hosed again by one of my day jobs...

...and I really am not sure what to do.

I wish Americans supported the worker instead of the corporation, and I wish I could make a living doing not just what I love to do (teach), but what also requires a strong investment of my own time and money to even be qualified to do (six years of education in a field like mathematics isn't something anybody can do, but you'd think so with how they pay us—hell, six years of education in any field isn't something anybody can do).

Are only rich people and famished people supposed to teach? If so, I'm sick of being the latter, although it's doing wonders for my figure.

Make that two of my day jobs. Curiosity doesn't kill cats, it just makes you confront reality faster. WTF.

"The Perks of Being a Wallflower" Movie Recommendation

Because I don't want to talk about this movie, because I won't talk about this movie, because I can't talk about this movie: six words.

Gut-wrenching wonder of awesome. Must-have.

Freeware Recommendation: Bitmeter II

Hi guys,

I recently switched back to using my mobile phone for my home Internet, so I required the use of a data tracker on my PC (since the phone's data was always a few hours old). I looked around and decided to try out Bitmeter II.

It's fantastic! I just Googled it to find the download. Here's the link,

On Unpublishing

Like a coward I didn't promote the last post. Not really sure what prompted my reluctance, but the last post did help me come to a few realizations.

I am happy where my math books are and I am happy with Change of the Zombie (although it desperately needs a new cover and I would really love to finish its evolution into a visual novel—by the way, because of the formatting abilities of ebooks, planning on including the VN version within the ebook and not just the original story...ANYWAY).

And although I am proud of The Throne of Ao, I am not happy with it. So until I can put out the second edition, I will be taking it off the market.
