Before April Goes Out the Door, Lemme Note

1) I passed the A+ Essentials exam!  FINALLY!

2) I STILL need to finish the NaNoWriMo book I worked on in November.  :(

3) In another week I'll be just another pirate looking back at 40.

4) I keep asking you Chinese spammers to buy my book, but NOOOOOOOO you cheapskates are just here for the free donuts!  Shame on you!

I'm getting spammed by the Chinese?

Last two entries had comments on them trying to link to other locations on the 'Net.  No comments at all, just the links.  That never looks good, so I trashed them.

If you Chinese guys adding comments are really reading this, could you at least put in a sentence or two so I know I'm not getting spammed by 'bots?  Better yet, can you guys go on and buy my book?  Awesome sauce!

Update 11/24/18: All this week I've seen a serious uptick in traffic to this article. Oh, great, I did something to anger China again.

Dammit, you guys, will you AT LEAST leave a comment in English because I can't read Mandarin or Cantonese or Klingon! AND BUY MY BOOKS!

Update 3/30/19: And the Chinese are back. Traffic to this article is just... meaningless without an honest comment below. IN ENGLISH! You're dealing with a guy who flunked out of college-level German, OKAY?! /headdesk

Update 12/13/22: What the absolute hell? I just got yesterday three more spam comments to moderate. At least this time the comments were in English, and were coming from what looks like Italian domain names.
