Learned a valuable lession yesterday

I had updated this blog for all you lemmings. A long spiel about how people avoid confrontation, even in games. But it never posted. A bunch of typing for nothing. Well, I can be pretty safe in assuming I am the only one reading this, so you know what I said.

I finished my resume today. I am applying for a new job soon. We'll see how it goes.

Hey look, its the next day and I remembered this is here. The cliff isn't too far ahead, so I don't know how long this will go on. So, what do you do with a 'blog' anyway? Most of the ones I have seen are very political as far as content goes. You know, everyone spewing their opinion, ignoring the fact that most people who would read blogs are set in their ways and aren't subject to changing their minds on any issues. James hasn't updated his much in the past week or so. Probably busy at work or with something else that is more constructive.

Speaking of work, I have to do something about my job. It is just no fun anymore. I have set a goal for myself that I am giving notice by the end of May. I'm just too unhappy. Maybe this goal will get my off my behind and motivate me to find another job I will learn to loathe in a few years.

It's the business cycle, right?

So...everyone else is doing it, I might as well be a lemming and join right in. Is that the cliff up ahead? Great. LET'S GO!

This is all his fault. One night at a LAN party, where I am playing my usual role as network engineer, James tells me about his blog. Blog? What the hell is a blog? I thought he was mis-speaking. I had never heard of these things, yet I see they are quite popular. Who knows how many people read it, but hey, its your dime.

So I start checking it now and then, and follow the links to other 'bloggers', and lo and behold, we're in the late 80's all over again. BBS-time, only on a much grander scale. Actually, they're just like forums, only you don't have to let other people post. I suppose it keeps the signal to noise ratio down, though most would call the blogs 100% noise.

I suppose I could go on for a while, but there's really no point. I wonder if I will remember if this is even here next week. Tune in to find out - though if you have to wait a week, you probably won't.

Come visit me over at ChaosTheory for some old time Forum 'crap-ola'.
