L’esprit de l’escalier

There’s a French phrase “l’esprit de l’escalier” (“wit of the staircase”). It refers to those times when you think of a witty response or retort … just a little too late. It happens a fair amount to me in real life but I’m referring to something on my blog.

See, occasionally, I get a small spike of visitors on my blog. Someone links to my blog and then a bunch of their readers check out my site. Sadly, they usually only visit once and I don’t find out until the next day when I check out my traffic stats in the morning. It’s too bad because I’d like to greet them with something like, “Hey, readers from Kupuk.com, welcome to my site!” and also that … umm, well, I guess I don’t have much more than that.

In any case, I just wanted to say, “Hey, readers that happen to be visiting my little blog for the first time today, welcome to my site! I mostly started this blog to chronicle my experiences developing iPhone apps. But occasionally, I write about other things. I guess that’s about it. Oh, I almost forgot, go buy Mach Dice!”

    When are you going to make a Mach Dice option for World of Darkness?

    Mach Dice is awesome. When’s your next project coming out?

    Thanks! As for the next project, yeah …. that’s a good question. I’ve gotten most of the proof of concept stuff working so I think I’m relatively close. It’s just hard finding the time to finish it. So hopefully, it’ll be a matter of a few weeks.
