I am entering this from a computer other than my own. I seem to have acquired a ghost in the machine: first a hard drive died, then the CPU fan, and now the monitor is expiring. I'm not sure when I'll be able to get this journal back on track - I have a metric fuck-ton of other things I need to attend to once I do get my machine operating again - but I'm still creating content for it and hopefully I'll manage to start getting it here before too long. My hope to hit Puzzle 100 before Portal 2 comes out is looking right hosed, though.
If you want to get in touch with me for anything in the interim, the easiest way is to actually send me a message over Xbox Live. (Honestly, that tends to be true in general. In fact, I'll probably be on. Playing Torchlight. Incessantly.) I will try to check emails (which is what comments here essentially become) fairly regularly, but can make no promises.
ObTeasers: Puzzle 53 will honor one of the most prolific puzzle designers alive; Chapter 3 of Twenty/Zero will end with someone getting shot by someone OTHER than Sam; expect to see more things involving playing cards than just puzzles. - ZM
