Stuff about, you know, puzzles

New Projects for Fall

Yesterday, after a morning high of about 95F, temperatures dropped in the afternoon to below 70F, which, along with the thirty thousand acorns that landed in my backyard and the sweaters that came out of the closet, kind of signals fall is here.

With my wife’s encouragement, I’ve started working on a new puzzle project that I hope to have done within the next month or two. I always enjoy writing puzzles, but this project would be for purchase, which puts an added pressure on me that I’m not used to.

At the same time, I’m working on a couple t-shirt designs, the more important one being The Smoking GNU uniform, but the more interesting one being a commemorative t-shirt that no one will probably want.

Finally, some friends have been after me to design their website, and we just recently decided to go forward. I’m hoping that I don’t fall into the pitfalls of the past (don’t get me started) and that things work out well. These are, after all, good friends, one of which whom I’ve known since sixth grade.

But hey, they’re willing to pay me.
