Heather Hamilton has left the building!

Tomorrow, officially. You know I couldn’t leave without saying goodbye, my wonderful, invisible interwebz friends. It’s been 12 years of hard work and 7 years of blogging. Seven years! I plan to pick up the blogging again, elsewhere; at least the personal stuff. Yeah, yeah, the Microsoft stuff stays here. And hopefully this blog will remain…

Speaking of "do I fit into your target market?": Facebook Deals

Tell me if this is ironic, unfortunate or if I am totally nuts

This story has not been formatted for viewing on the web. Commentary on one of the superstars appears under a picture and heading of another;…
