Been a while...

Gee... it's been a LONG time since I posted here. Life just got the better of me I think. I won't promise to post here more often - dont' want to let you all down - but I will make an effort to make some more regular appearances.

Well, one of the reasons for this post is to point you all to the blog of a good friend of mine: Yvette. Why? I hear you ask. Well, I'll tell you.

The reason it's SOO important that you head over there is that there is a post about - ME! So go on - enjoy!

Wow, I'm not sure if I'm up the huge amounts of traffic that will be diverted from your blog to mine :)

Great to see you breaking the weblog hiatus. I like your friend Yvette's site. Anybody that starts a post with the word "So" is near and dear to my heart. http://spaces.msn.com/members/dvette/Blog/cns!1poIjU8JCXEC7CrytxWtLsmA!250.entry

Yvette - Yes, I am indeed happily married, but I'm somewhat surprised at your inability to attrack a suitable geek man. Given that
- You have a weblog
- You have a propensity to start phrases with "So"
- You've professed an attraction to men who are lanky, has bad hair and looks socially inept(mental images of myself and many MANY other codes I know spring to mind on reading this phrase)....
- Are friends wit the likes of Aydsman
I would have thought finding and retaining a suitable male geek companion would have been almost a foregone conclusion. What are you doing wrong? Brisbane 'aint exactly Silicon Valley or MIT but go along to any of the AJUG, QMSDNUG or Brisbane Linux Group meetings and you should have the pick of the "litter". You might also want to try hanging out at certain computer hardware stores, star-trek conventions, the line-up for the new starwars movie (if there is one) or the right-hand side of the McGills book-store in Elizabeth street. Which ever way you approach it I'd be quite surprised if you hadn't seen plenty of gangly social ineptitude after following any of these steps.

Well, I am flattered at your suggestion that I should be capable of snagging a geekman

However, I may have neglected to mention a few other factors at play...
1. I don't like new people
2. I'm kind of sick of hearing about the suckfulness of particular windowish operating systems (and how Linux is an awesome name for a girlfriend)
3. People tend to be turned off when they see me break-dance

. . . . wanna dance??

1.Errr...that might be a bit of a showstopper.

2.Leeeenox is so 1999. Lets face it if they're bragging about that they're probably more of a sys-admin type than a real coder. Sys admins have the same relationship to coders that commercial radio disk jockeys have to musicians, plus there's the whole "pagers going of at weird hours" issues that sharing your life with a sys-admin would bring.(ofc I might be biased :-))

3.Breakdancing is HOT (altho both my kids can breakdance better than me).
