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.

Drawing AutismDrawing Autism by Jill Mullen. It was interesting to see the wide variety of art drawn by others on the spectrum and to read their thoughts about their art. But my favorite remains this bit from Temple Grandin’s intro:

Some people who are visual thinkers can do geometry and trigonometry; they possess the second kind of mind: the pattern thinker. Instead of creating photo-realistic pictures in their imaginations, they see patterns and relationships between numbers. It is a more abstract form of visual thinking…. If they do visual art, it may be more abstract and impressionistic, as opposed to photo-realistic.

The Martian by Andy Weir. I haven’t seen the movie, so I was unprepared for how much this scifi thriller sucked me in. Glad I read it on a Friday evening so it wasn’t a huge deal that I read the book in one sitting and went to bed at 3 am…

Jack of Kinrowan by Charles de Lint. The two books contained in this omnibus edition are about Jacky and Kate, two ordinary Ottawa women who get drawn into the machinations of Faerie. Definitely not my favorites by de Lint.
