Anthrocon

Yup. I heard about the local news article about the Adams Mark closing in January. Nope, I don’t know if it is all true. Nope, I don’t know how the new owner will honor their contract with us. Yes, you should still send your dealers application in. Yes, there will still be a con. I’ll […]

The con will come out …Tomorrow .. Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow… they’ll be con.

For those kind folks who want to be in the dealers room at Anthrocon this year, this is to remind you that tomorrow, December 1st is the first day you can send dealers packets in to get in line and get your table, etc. Also, good ole’ Murphy has raised his head. The packets all […]

You know you’re not a small company anymore when you have to write tactful emails without telling someone they are doing something durn near illegal:

Any stock experts?

I’m working for a privately held company. I have stock options in said company. They have never issued a prospectus or anything of that sort. I suspect (and have good verbal confirmation) that in preparation of a buyout by VC they have doubled the available stock pool to entice folks. This, of course, causes my […]

Blah

Man I hate being in a funk like this. Since about mid-week last week I’ve just generally been restless and unable to really concentrate on anything at work and in some ways, at home too. This happened to me once before, when I was working at DCI. I sure hope what happened there doesn’t happen […]
