Those free Nigerian scam t-shirts never materialised, but still, the affair prompted me to get some excellent merch art made and set up a web shop. A good thing about this is that now I can offer all three designs submitted by Jim Allen, Stacy Mason and Joe Hewitt! Dear Reader, hie thee over to…

Joe’s Aard T-shirt Design

Joseph Hewitt of Ataraxia Theatre is the artist who rendered almost the entire ScienceBlogs stable as zombies last summer. He has submitted the third t-shirt design, and when I saw it I thought, “Screw the reader’s poll, this is the one I want!”. So although I’d very proudly wear shirts with the designs by Stacy…

Stacy’s Aard T-shirt Design

Here’s the second t-shirt design suggestion, from Stacy Mason! Compare the first one from Jim Allen/Sweeney. And Barn Owl has volunteered to distribute the shirts! So unless a third design comes my way soon, I’ll set up an on-line poll to decide which image goes onto the Aardvarchaeology t-shirts, and then place the order.

Jim’s Aard T-shirt Design

Here’s the first t-shirt design suggestion, from Jim Allen/Sweeney! Says Jim, “The image could be printed in black or white on a contrasting shirt, or even in three colours – say, white for the eyes and trowel, tan for the outline and green for the lettering.” I’m thinking that the URL would go on the…

Aard T-Shirts? Help Needed!

A company has offered to sponsor Aard with 15-30 free printed t-shirts bearing the design of my choice, delivered to a US address. I’d like to accept their offer, and so I need help from my readers. 1. I need a hi-res design to put on the shirt. I only have the blog’s venerable masthead…

Head on over and greet Bora Zivkovic at A Blog Around The Clock Krystal d’Costa at Anthropology in Practice Jennifer Ouellette at Cocktail Party Physics Janet Stemwedel at Doing Good Science Kevin Zelnio at EvoEcoLab…

Earl Birger Rules

Birger Johansson is an awesome guy. We’ve never met, but he’s one of Aard’s most prolific and witty commenters. And then, out of the blue, he suddenly tells me that he’s got some free shipping to spare on Amazon and sends me a hoard of books, a DVD and a graphic novel! THANK YOU BIRGER!…

ScienceBlogs Solvent Again

I just got paid half a year’s back wages by the ScienceBlogs Overlords. Christmas came early! No, I mean, last Christmas came late! Paying me off wasn’t such a big deal as I usually make only $75 a month. But at least two of the heaviest hitters here on Sb have also been paid. That’s…

Hi Bloggers, Let me apologize again for the problems that many of you and your readers are experiencing. The attack is ongoing, originating from Turkey and Qatar, and until it stops, Rackspace must block IP ranges in order for the site to be accessible to anyone. They are also unwilling to manually unblock hundreds upon…

Here’s an idea that I’d like some reader feedback on. Would it be worthwhile to put together an EPUB e-book, about as long as a 200-page paperback, of selected blog entries of mine? I’m thinking I’d organise it in thematic sections and sort each section chronologically. And publish the thing for free on Smashwords. If…
