Happy hump day, kittens. It’s a long haul from here to the next holiday, particularly if you are a geek of pristine antecedents and spotless reputation if not wardrobe (ie Forever Alone) and Valentine’s Day just means chocolate at half off. Don’t worry, there’s always Saint Patrick’s Day when it’s not just okay but positively festive to get black out drunk.

No, you cannot pass off last week as “practicing.”

Get it together, get some coffee in your cup and stimulants in your brain and prepare to download the very latest thing in crypto and cyber and cybercrypto news links!
