Some time in the early 1990s, while playing with Microsoft Paintbox on a prehistoric laptop, I came up with a small one-eyed alien named Blinky. I made up a little children's book called "The Adventures of Blinky and the Mysterious Box" and printed out two copies, one for me and one for a friend.

While I was cleaning out the junk in the back of my wardrobe last month, I found my copy. Looking back, there are many things I don't get about it. Where did I find the time to do this? It must have taken hours! And since when could I drag a cursor around a screen with a mouse and make it look like an expression of smug triumph or nervous cheer? I'm not that clever.

It's an enigma to us all.
