Leeking Ink

I wanted to give the author of this zine the benefit of the doubt after I read her introduction, in which she assures the readers that she would not be making this zine a “mama-zine.” Boy, was she lying. I found this zine immensely boring. I only found myself reading the section about her partner’s brush with cancer, which was something I could understand and sympathize with. The rest of the zine was endless prattle about the whats and whatnots of her toddler.

Perhaps if I wasn’t childfree I would be able to appreciate the content of this zine. I found the lack of consideration for the common reader an immediate turnoff. When writing a zine that corresponds with your life, it should have content that can be enjoyed by everyone, if everyone is your aimed audience. I didn’t get that while reading this zine.

With the exception of the brush with cancer, I found that I just did not care at all about what the author had to say or how she said it. At times, I even found the aforementioned to be boring and self-centred. The problem isn’t in her writing style; her style is actually very fluid and imaginative. It’s the content that holds the problems, and I just couldn’t get past that.

Perhaps if I were a different person under different circumstances, I would have enjoyed this zine. As I am now, I did not. I also have a hard time imagining anyone besides the author’s family and friends who would. (Tara Blackmore)

    A couple of issues i have seen in terms of laptop or computer memory is that often you can find capabilities such as SDRAM, DDR etc, that ought to fit in with the specs with the mother board. If the private computer’s motherboard is reasonably current whilst you’ll find no operating-system issues, improving the memory literally will take under a couple of hours. It is one of the easiest computer upgrade types of procedures 1 can envision. Thanks for sharing your tips.
