    Everybody who’s listened to the news or old people has probably been told that the Internet will destroy us, that it will leave us as simpering, babbling nincompoops. And by and large, that’s happened. Nobody needs to be reminded how much... More

  • Hello, again.

    I have had a hiatus(I really hope I used that term correctly) from GIO for the past two weeks... at least, I think it has been that long. Half of it wasn't my fault. We didn't have internet for three or four days. The other half of it WAS my fault... More
