The Comic Work of James Burns
I've redrawn large portions of my first comic about the fear and dread I experienced while having some serious vision problems ("Detached," mentioned earlier on MetaFilter), and also put together a collection of a year's worth of my ongoing weekly "Grumbles" comic strips, and made printed versions available using Lulu's on-demand printing.

I'm working on a making a mini comic....
Hopefully I will finish enough to put one together by the end of the year. Hopefully it will be at least 30 pages. I know this is supposed to be for projects already completed. But the more I say (or type) the words "I am working on a comic." the less I feel I can slack off or chicken out. Anyhow.

The Brutal Battle for the Soul of Professor Perry Mills
An ongoing investigative expose of the embezzlement scandal at Western Washington University. Professor Perry Mills discovered the massive theft of student course fees by his department chair and demanded an audit. The university created a phony audit to cover up the embezzlement and suspended Mills on blatantly false charges. The case is now in federal court in Seattle. The blog was started by Nick Johnson, antarctic explorer, author, adventurer and former student of Professor Mills. I have been contributing investigative research to the site. This scandal has been percolating out of public notice for nearly six years, but has recently begun to attract media attention. The ultimate consumation will likely be the resignation of most of the upper administration of the university and criminal prosecution of the malefactors. Thrills, danger, lust and excitement in the ivy-covered halls of academia. Higher education as an ongoing criminal enterprise.

Muted Tones
An ongoing monthly sound/music series, now into its forth volume. Past volumes have included the work of MeFi's twitch, almostcool and aliclia. melissa may will be producing a piece this December. There's about four hours worth of curious and lovely soundscapes available in handy free mp3 format to download or stream. Past volumes: one, two, three. (this was posted to MeFi a few years ago but the music has doubled since then, so hopefully it's okay here. enjoy!)

Password generator
I wrote a bookmarklet to make up passwords for me. It asks for my master password, which is all I have to remember, and uses it to make a unique password for each site. It even types the password into any password fields on the current page for me, whether I'm registering for a new account or logging in on a subsequent visit.

OfficePoltergeist is the easiest way to terrorize your coworkers. OfficePoltergeist sets up a small server running on the victim's machine. The program, which hides in memory while it runs, waits silently for a connection on port 666. With the OfficePoltergeist, you can be the poltergeist! OfficePoltergeist allows you to:
  • Play spooky sounds
  • Open or close cd drives
  • Transmit text through your victim's keyboard
  • Make windows shake
  • Turn monitors on and off
  • Move windows slightly left and right
  • Send popup alert messages
OfficePoltergeist does not install itself or remain in memory after the game is over. While the OfficePoltergeist server does run as stealthily as it can to avoid the victim's attention, OfficePoltergeist is totally gone when the user restarts his or her machine. Source code and whatnot is available.
