I’ve reached a milestone.

Roughly 20 years ago I released my first inflation story, The Pageant. I can’t really nail down the exact date. The modified date on the file is November 8, 1995. It first appeared in Issue 4 of the Research and Development newsletter.

For Laughs

Sometimes I’ll write a story almost entirely around a gag that I (and likely few other people) find really amusing. Conspiracy: Peer Pressure was built around the line “Tanks for the mammaries.” I’d wanted to work that one into a story for a long time. Gassing Up is all about “I’m up here.” It was inspired by a scene from Lost that has absolutely nothing to do with inflation, but my imagination took it there.

New Spam Countermeasure


I've implemented a new antispam technique. Initial trials have been promising, but there is the potential to block legitimate users.

Recently there's been a huge surge in spam attempts. For the past month or so, I've been seeing about ten times the normal volume. This has the potential to be problematic if left unchecked.

Back Online

Decided to use the unexpected downtime to upgrade some woefully out-of-date server components. It didn't all go as planned. The search index is rebuilding so search will be spotty for a bit. Everything else should be working.
