First, a blatant plug: My bird story comes out tomorrow (Dec. 20th) in the email edition of Daily Science Fiction! Sign up for Daily Science Fiction tonight, and you'll have it in your inbox by morning. DSF publishes one story a day, M-F, with email subscribers getting each story a week ahead of time, so if you don't sign up in time, you can still read the story on their site on, I believe, the 27th. Either way you go, it's free, and they don't spam you. (And writers, take note; they are one of the higher-paying markets for short F&SF.)
About this site, the comic, and everything else: From now on, this is where everything public goes first--before because as much of a tinkerer as I am, the site will never meet my standard of "ready." And although I still plan to migrate the things I want to keep from the legacy site, I'm not going to hold myself hostage to that process.
Blue Crash Kit--as in the relaunch and continuation of--is still coming along, just at a slower pace than any of us would like, and as I announced earlier, I'm waiting until we have a big buffer before I post a single comic. I'm giving Amee more of a free hand than I did when she initially took over art duties from Shan, and she's doing some awesome things with it. It's more of a collaboration this time around, even on how we tell the stories, and instead of trying to do "Rob and Shan's BCK (with Amee playing the part of Shan)," we're doing "Rob and Amee's BCK." And so far, it feels good.
Scrivener: Still building .deb installers for the unofficial Linux beta of Scrivener, with Lit&Lat providing the files, and me packaging them up, but I have some tasks I need to pay more attention to. The most recent Linux beta doesn't expire until March of 2012, though.
