Whoohoo! I won my name back!

About a year and a half ago I wrote about how my personal domain name (jackwilliambell.com) was stolen by domain vultures. (Go read the sordid tale, I’ll wait.) So, basically I told them to choke on it. They sent me a few more emails trying to entice me to make another offer. I ignored them. …

Vanishing Point

The more things change, the more we want them to be like they used to be. (Except for when we don’t.) Back in the 1970s I spent a lot of summer nights in local drive-in theaters south of Seattle.

A certain whiff of carrion about it

About six months before Anita passed away I set up a new website for myself, using my full name for the domain. (It was jackwilliambell.com, but I’m not linking; more on why later.) The hosting company took care of the domain name and I did a quick and dirty home page intending to revisit it …

Twas the night before the night before Christmas

And all through the house not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. But that’s because I use a trackball! I’ve been snowbound alone here in the house, with only one visit to a nearby food court, for about four days now. But it isn’t like I haven’t been working. No, indeed. I’ve been …

Horrfied B-Movie victims

Featured on Boing Boing today. These are mine and live in my cube at work. I won them a couple of years ago in a costume contest! If you zoom-in (keep clicking on the picture) you can see that the packaging graphics use Seattle (including Space Needle) as the city under attack by the giant …
