Ask the Headhunter blog

[ #32419 ]

Nick Corcodilos (of Ask the Headhunter) has a blog. I haven't looked at it yet, but everything else Nick provides (book, website, newsletter) is spectacular.

I assume Andy Lester already knows, because he reads the ATH newsletter. :) But I hadn't been reading it lately, and just popped in to that folder to check it out.

  • No, I hadn't seen it. Thanks for the pointer!


  • Hi,

    Are you the David Blackston who used to work on patches for the game Angband? If so, please could you email me at

    • Nope, I'm afraid not. He's probably a different relative. I believe a lot of the British branch of the family is Blackston or Blaxton. I'm Blackstone. But it's all from common stock, and a lot of people who knew the roots of my family in East Texas pronounce it Blackston even when spelled Blackstone.

      Looks like programming is in the genes. :)
