An update on some web site administration today. Some of you may have noticed that ONCE UPON A GEEK looks a little different today.

Well, thanks to the internet I’m reliving my […]

If you look in the right-hand sidebar I’ve added two Twitter feeds, one for comic books and one for Doctor Who (both popular topics here). I thought this […]
