Other Ten Percent 1/28/11

Jan 28 2011

I kinda feel like a failure for not coming up with a totally new format over this month that I can do regularly but I think now it’s just time to switch over to shake down mode and figure out what to do with the things I’ve learned for a while before announcing a new format for each day of the week. I’ve got some ideas and stuff should be getting back to normal starting next week but I may still mess around a little.
