FerretBrain

Rampant Ranting, Spurious Supposition and ... OOOH look Shiny Thing!

Back from upgrade. WebFaction upgraded our server, and it took a little while to put the ferrets back in their cages. Please let the editor or our tech-wizard know about any issues you notice through the usual channels.

Ferretbrain is an easy-going, irreverent e-zine about stuff - we publish reviews, essays, opinion pieces, podcasts and whatever else we thought was cool at the time. For our articles, you can click on the articles link on the sidebar or browse this very front page for updates. Podcasts can be found under podcasts. The playpen is where we talk about things we found on the internet, or what happened to be on our mind at the time.

If you'd like to join our wayward repository of ideas, you can comment on any article using Open ID or you can email the editor (editor at ferretbrain dot com) for a Ferretbrain account, which has the added bonus of letting you post in the playpen.

For more information about Ferretbrain, or joining Ferretbrain, check out our about page (currently left as our previous editor last revised it - mild revisions forthcoming).

The recent bug affecting article dating has been resolved, thanks to our tech-wizard Rami. (Thank you, Rami!) If you've been sitting on an idea for an article, now's the perfect time to press on with it.

  • I was *just thinking* the other day that I wanted to read more about UFOlogy and urban legends. As soon as the leaves turn crunchy, I get an itch for that sort of thing. at 17:01 on 02-10-2018 by Ronan Wills - link
  • October's here which means it's time to get spoopy! Web hosting and DNS are paid up fully so we should be safe from outages. This year I'm going to mix it up a bit by weaving in some articles ... at 17:59 on 01-10-2018 by Arthur B - link
  • Alright! I've successfully moved into my new apartment! Which... uh... means I don't have wi-fi (at least for my computer). I can still access this site on my phone, so I'll still be able to c... at 01:38 on 17-09-2018 by Raymond H - link
