Several commenters have suggested I add Google ads to the blog so that they can donate. I thought I had, but for some odd reason, the ads aren't showing up. Tried to resolve the issue this morning, but the computer I'm using has decided to fight me tooth and nail. Looks like I'll have to get outside help to resolve the issue. The problem is that I can't see the ads from my computer. If anyone else can, please let me know; and also let me know what browser you're using to see them. That will give me more clues as to what to look for. I plan to add a "Google Search" bar and I've already updated the page to allow posts to be sent via e-mail (didn't see that option before when I set things up.)
On another front, the Beast has turned to more subtle tactics. He's been lashing me with an old weapon I thought I'd taken from him some time ago*. So far, the attacks are just an annoyance, but all it would take is an unguarded moment to become a full-fledged ego attack.
Mike's Beast has apparently been attacking him, too, but his manifests more subtly, making him withdraw into his own little world rather than feeding him doubt and fear. We're on top of the situation, though, and are getting him some professional help.
*I'd rather not say what it is, no. Let's just say it's something that it's a mental thing I've struggled with on a low-key basis for years.
Good luck on those job hunts, man. Care to tell us what kind of position you are looking for? I'm curious about what kind of carreer you'd like...
Feel free to email me anytime and say hi.
Good luck fighting the Beast...
Time to start clicking away.
Good luck to you. I know your situation well.
