Agent Ransack on the Case

The majority of folks can skip this article, because most PC users never use most of the space on their computer’s hard drive. Don’t bother denying it, as I’ve already seen this, hundreds if not thousands of times over. That’s okay though, you’re still okay, as far as I’m concerned.

And So It Begins

While I’ve been communicating electronically for over two decades, I never took web logging (or blogging) seriously. I still don’t (take it seriously.)
