For the last 11 years, David Thorne has shared the various ways in which he's annoyed co-workers and neighbours for his own entertainment. Thankfully he shares these stories with us too. The ways in which he is able to wind people is almost admirable. He can push buttons in a way that I could only dream of doing.
The website itself hasn't changed much in the last 9 years. The B in 27B/6 is now uppercase rather than lowercase, but there's not much more in it. It's surprisingly very good at displaying the contents of an email thread too which really helps to tell the stories. The most amusing to me are the ones that feature colleagues/clients who expect design work for little or no compensation.

While the website is a great intro to his world, Thorne has also authored 9 books featuring essays and previously unpublished stories.
