Hacker for Hire

A Bitter Ray of Sunshine

Wyatt • • General

It’s always a pleasure to get something unexpected in your email. Today, the 61st edition of the DNRC newsletter was released to me, and I must say, it was good. Along with all the other fun stuff that comes with it, I found that Scott Adams, the creator of my role-model and hero, Dogbert, has now started his own blog. You’ll see that I’ve taken the chance to add it to my blog role. Although I don’t personally know Scott Adams, his quotes, such as this one, make me feel as if he was my crazy uncle that no one liked me hanging around, but I did it anyway so I could learn how to make armpit noises and tell fart jokes.

People who are trying to decide whether to create a blog or not go through a
thought process much like this:

  1. The world sure needs more of ME.
  2. Maybe I’ll shout more often so that people nearby can experience the joy of
    knowing my thoughts.
  3. No, wait, shouting looks too crazy.
  4. I know – I’ll write down my daily thoughts and badger people to read them.
  5. If only there was a description for this process that doesn’t involve the words egomaniac or unnecessary.
  6. What? It’s called a blog? I’m there!

The blogger’s philosophy goes something like this:

Everything that I think about is more fascinating than the crap in your head.

It’s statements like those that make me smile that sort of evil smile you get by smashing a kid’s ice cream cone into his face so he’ll remember you for the rest of his life.
