Hey, that's pretty amusing. I just wish the post titles weren't so tiny compared to the posts themselves, because sometimes the titles make it funnier.

Also, two posts per page? Really? That's awkward.

Glad you guys like it! I actually just made the post titles a little larger.

The two posts per page was a design choice. Your feedback has been duly noted. I may change it.


Thanks for reading!

Well, two posts per page is not so bad when one or both of them are fairly long. And considering each post is an image, I understand you don't want to go too crazy. But when I was trying to catch up on all the backstory in one shot it made my clicking finger a little sad [Wink]

So... how did you magically pop in on this thread as a new user where we were randomly talking about your site? Do you know steampunkgrrrrl? Are you steampunkgrrrrrrrl?!

Or the infamous boyfriend?

I will note that the formatting is more tolerable in RSS...

Hilarious. I like the June 2 entry, in which he gets stuck in a shirt.

Heh. I've just not bought clothes because I couldn't figure out how they worked. And, um, when I got married, I had to practice putting on my wedding dress. Had a side zip and the first couple times I tried it on I stuck my arm through the wrong hole... [blush]

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Yep! Analytics showed some traffic coming from geekculture.com so I thought I'd say hello. Hello!

If you scroll down to the archive and click by month or year, you get a whole bunch of posts at once.

Also, if you didn't know, there is a Awkward Engineer Facebook page with a little extra material, like random assorted pictures and projects.

Well that makes sense. And hello! Welcome to our little corner of the world!

I hooked up the RSS feed for ongoing awkwardness, but I'll try to remember to click through in case that matters to you.
