iFAQs (inFrequently Asked Questions)

A list of information you might be looking for about Slaunchways.com in Q&A format!!!

Question: Why not just call it "Frequently Asked Questions" [FAQ] like everyone else?
Answer: Perhaps it's simply my limited understanding of frequently asked questions, but I believe you must receive questions with some frequency to qualify for an FAQ section. Besides, isn't iFAQ far more hip and Apple-ish than just plain old FAQ?

Q: So who are you again?
A: This guy.

Q: Can I contact you?
A: Absolutely - I'd love to hear from you. Post a comment or shoot me an email. The address is:


Q: Do you have any feeds to keep me updated?
A: Sure thing.
Atom: http://www.slaunchways.com/feeds/posts/default
RSS: http://www.slaunchways.com/feeds/posts/default?alt=rss


If you'd rather get updates via email, you can sign up for my mailing list somewhere over there to your right.

Q: You've got a lot of crap. Since I have no interest in reading through all of it, anything you'd recommend?
A: While everything is always beyond awesome here, I would have to say the posts linked on this page are beyond beyond awesome.

Q: What does slaunchways mean?
A: Askew. Askance. Slanted. Etc. It's a real word. And it's really fun to say. If you don't believe me, try it.

Q: Ok, so slaunchways.com is all well and good, but wasn't this thing once called "Unknown Stuff" or something?
A: It used to be called Unknown Knowns and Other Ramblings, mostly as a tribute to the wise words of former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. When he resigned, there was no point in carrying on. That, and I got really sick of it.

Q: How do you come up with this stuff?
A: I couldn't do it without these folks. So thank them or blame them.

Q: This (or that) story you linked in a post years ago isn't there anymore.
A: That's not a question. So get over it.

Q: How much traffic does the site experience on a daily basis?
A: Because of, uh, privacy concerns, I don't want to go into specifics, but believe me when I say that a comparable amount of traffic drives into Juneau, Alaska each day.

Q: Is it just me, or do you go back and revise previous posts?
A: Sometimes. Never. Your memory must not be what it used to be.

Q: Why are we here?
A: Wow. That's a terrific question. I believe that we're all put here on this Earth for a specific purpose. Without a doubt, at times that purpose can be hard to see. . . why are you looking at me like that?

Q: When I said, "why are we here?" I meant, like, why did we are we here on this webpage? As in, what's the point?
A: I think it's time to end this conversation.

I like that since you updated this post, it returned to my news aggregator. I kept thinking to myself that I'd read this all before, so I came here to see the date and sure enough.

I think I'll miss that Mosty guy.
