BA Bro Blog

Genetic material is not a finite resource. It's not used up like printer ink or oil or raspberry jelly (note to self: need to go shopping). Watered liberally with nurture, nature can produce a lot of talent in one family. For example, my sister sings opera, and she's really good. Yet I can play trombone, showing that musical talent is not a non-renewable resource.

Writing is the same, y'know. My extraordinary abilities, generally eclipsing those of mere mortals, are not alone in the family font. I present to you my brother's blog, hosted at his site Plait Solutions. He does computer tech support in his town of Roswell (I know, I know, but this one is in Atlanta, not New Mexico; the only aliens there show up for Dragon*Con), and started a blog to help out his clients and give them some basic, useful information. He does have some solid advice there, as well as the odd ramble or two.
