[personal] Miscellaneous updatery for a Sunday

I'm most of the way through writing another Sunspin short, "A Long Walk Home". Might get it finished today. Also, going hiking up on Mt. Hood today with calendula_witch and T—. It's nice to be able to get back out in the world.

I got an email the other day from a reader. I hesitate to call it a fan letter, because they talked about how much they disliked one of my books. I have requested, and received, permission to quote the email for a longer post on reader reactions that I hope to draft this afternoon and put up on the blog tomorrow.

Finally, I discovered another odd bug in Microsoft Word, at least Word 2008 on Mac OS X 10.6.5. If I click on a pair of .doc files, Word will open. If I click on a pair of .docx files, Word will open. But if I click on a .doc file and a .docx file at the same time, ie a mixed-format pair, Word tries to open, then goes off into la-la land until I force-quit the application. Easily avoidable, but a tad odd.

So we know I'm hiking, writing, and playing with software today. What are you up to?
