Well, we're at a pivotal point. I'm poised to lock down the final layout for the front panel for my Vetinari Clock project. We've explored several alternatives scenarios in earlier columns (see this blog and this one too), and now I'd like to hear your thoughts on the final conten......

I'm now cursing myself for being a fool. I have let chances and opportunities slip between my fingers. I deserve to be berated soundly. But what is the cause of this gnashing of teeth and rending of garb? Well, let me explain ? As you may recall, my Inamorata Prognostication En......
