Ask Mr. Wizard Wednesday


I've been lax here on BlogHQ, spending more of my effort on DreamLoom and the new home for Sketch War. In an effort to fix that and to increase the interactivity around here (that means you guys,) I'm going to institute a new feature. Wednesdays I'll be posting an open call for questions. Any kind of questions.

Questions about me, advice for the lovelorn, software questions, writing questions, questions about the annual cinnamon harvest in Sumatra...ask 'em and I'll answer 'em. I make no guarantees of the quality, veracity, or utility of the answers, but you'll get *something* either useful or funny.

Ask your questions in comments and I'll be posting your answers through the following days. This will keep you coming back and keep me more actively engaged over here. See? We *all* win.

How did you come up with the idea for the weekly "Ask Mr. Wizard Wednesday" posts? :)

Wiseass! This one I'm just gonna answer in comments. ;)

A blog I read has an infrequent feature similar to it and I thought I'd try it out. Weekly might be too much, but I thought I'd try it out and see.

My oldest daughter has colored hair. Not much, a touch of pink here, a bit of blue there, a raccoon tail effect.

As a likely expert in these matters, please tell me if Trader Joe's Tea Tree shampoo is safe for colored hair.

What's the best way to keep a mildew free shower/bath? How do you treat the existing mildew?

R.A. Porter said...

Colette, just curious if you saw I'd posted an answer for you.

Ok, here's my question: Is the company that bought Archway going to start making the cookies again? You know, the Archway cookies that we all know and love. Thanks!

R.A. Porter said...

@Astrogirl426, I'm going to answer that one inline. It looks like Lance restarted cookie production back in mid-December. I would expect them to start showing up on store shelves pretty soon.

If you could write for any show, which would it be and why?
