Linkity is crabby

Nobody should have to deal with ransomware on their 50th birthday, dammit! It seems to be an issue with my work computer – I noticed it because there were a couple of dropbox folders that I synch between work and home and suddenly all the files in said folders were encrypted. Plus there was a helpful “pay us and we will decrypt your files” message. Not sure if it’s good or bad that I’m on vacation this week (although hey! I obviously didn’t click anything stupid on my work computer, since I wasn’t there…). Anyway, cleaning that up, restoring the folders from backup (I definitely recommend CrashPlan, which paid for itself in salvaging this mess), and sending an email to our support guys at work has consumed quite a bit of my linkity time. Let’s see how far I get in the time I have…

Reading Update
My Day with the Cup by Sidney Crosby. It’s very sweet. And it having 87 pages is the most Sidney Crosby thing ever. (This is from the 2009 Cup win.)
Little Book of Letterpress by Charlotte Rivers. Interesting look at the work of various letterpress studios around the world. I would’ve loved for the “Letterpress in Practice” chapter to have been much longer.
Eight Million Gods by Wen Spencer. Anytime I end up reading a book in a single sitting because it completely sucked me in, that book is an automatic five-star read. Plus I’ve reserved Wen Spencer’s Elfhome series at the library and am looking forward to starting it soonishly.
Letterpress Now: A DIY Guide to New and Old Printing Methods by Jessica C. White. Very good overview of three types of printing presses (tabletop platen, freestanding platen, cylinder press), along with projects for each type.

  1. Happy Birthday Chris.

    Hope the ransomware isn’t still bothering you too much. I’m still suffering with the fallout from 3 weeks ago! My backups weren’t up to date as my server link had broken some weeks earlier and I was just backing up to my PC hard drive. Duh! Wish I’d known about CrashPlan! 🙁

  2. That Death Star tree topper seems particularly apropos for this year. If it weren’t so expensive I’d get a couple — one for our tree and one for was-once-Star-Wars-crazed Elder Son.

    And happy 50th! On my 50th ES, then 15, wrote me a poem:

    Now you are 50,
    It’s really, really nifty.
    Here is a gifty.
