Nowadays, I appreciate outdoor hot dog stands. They're very well ventilated and I can buy food unlike that I'd cook for myself.

One Year of Octothorpean The Octothorpean online puzzle-hunt launched a year ago today. How have things gone since then? Pretty well, I think. On the other hand, for the goals I had… They're not so easy to measure. S...
