A propos of nothing, it seems like all of our (read: mine and Liz's) computers/phones decided to go kerflooie at the same time. Some of the kerflooieness is nothing more than your garden variety antiquated technology problems. Some are, well, strange new ways of gear falling apart, components ceasing to function, error messages that lead us down help pages written in techno mumble jumble, those sorts of things. To complicate manners further, we're having a bit of difficulty getting back on our feet too. Maybe I've got a metal plate in my head that's emitting bad vibes, or maybe it's just have bad luck, but it seems that Liz's replacement laptop conveniently crashes after about ... oh, I'll say ten minutes of use. Good times, good times. Anyway, today's puzzle's theme comes not from error messages, but from the more creative way people talk using computers. Enjoy.
Hey, if you have a bit of money burning a hole in yr. pocket, why not consider backing Peter Gordon's latest Kickstarter? Okay? Okay.
Share the puzzle. New one on Monday.
