Free Wendys

I just got spam offering me Free Wendys Gift Certificates. I think this is ironic.

Earlier today, tried to set a macro on Outlook so I could process my junk mail all at once, adding it all to the junk senders list, trashing it and making it so it gets trashed forever after... only Microsoft's instructions didn't work since they assume I can find my junk sender's list and it's not where they say :( Pooh. I get an average of 100+ spams a day in Outlook (which is 4 accounts plus some weird email aliases I have) and it is getting really freakin' ridiculous.

Brag / Promo: Wraeththu Fanfic Booklet

Well, I just put up a little site for the new Wraeththu fanfic story anthology, Writers of the Storm. This is a printed fanfic anthology that Addie (whom some of you may know from the VC and other fandoms) has produced with Storm's cooperation. It's really nice, with a beautiful Ruby-designed cover and six stories, each with its own illustration by Deb. Soon Mercredi and I will be published in TWO books!
