Soon, I'm going to start a webfic serial called "Endless Nights at The Mansion".
And I'll try my best not to turn it into creepypasta; That's what I _hate_. But mild classic (and not psychological) horror would be fine, I guess. And I'll try to post 3-4 entries per month.
What do you guys think about it? It's my first ever serial writing.

Why IBM’s “Dear Tech” ad is so enraging.
Technology hasn’t fallen short of its promise. Tech companies have.
A friend of mine asked me why the hell I read old/arcane titles.
This is my answer:
"Things are CONFUSING AS HELL!"
As someone who lives outside the US, DC and Marvel comicbook catalog is very puzzling to me; especially since I'm not exposed much to American superhero stuff.
Is it just as easy as taking one randomly and following a title mid-way (i.e. #74 or something)?

I really hate it when authors resort to magic as an explanation for things. It's probably why I could never muster enthusiasm for Harry Potter, and it drives my girlfriend crazy.
It's just this unsatisfying feeling, that nothing in this magical world has any relevance or makes any sense.
You can roast me now.
~=8 Character Passwords Are Dead=~
New benchmark from the Hashcat Team shows a 2080Ti GPU passing 100 Billion password guesses per second (NTLM hash).

White people offering “free internet”* to the people of Africa…
* i.e. a private monitored ad funded network they call “internet”
Free, subsidized world-wide shipping for products from China is a price we just can't afford to pay.
On the contrary, we're overpaying for this by further destroying our environment and economies.
Mind you: I'm not trying to bash Chinese products here. But please, let's not pretend shipping something worth $5 across the entire globe is something you'll get for free.

It is an OSH by Purism.
