Come to think of it “The Old Master” would be a pretty good hacker name. Too bad I’ve doubled down on @F*ckS4boo.

But it’s a new dawn, kittens. Time to face it bravely, armed with nothing more than your own steely resolve and a bunch of pixels dancing across a screen, feeding information directly to your synapses. And, as always, the strong beverage of your choice; Kenya AAA is good, absinthe, not so much. Not before 9am anyway.

We are civilized, after all. We are not savages. The stuff you can get in the States just isn’t good enough for breakfast.

To the links, kittens!
