Wednesday

July 30th, 2008 by Rick

The day started off a little weird….  I drove my wife’s SUV to work today, but didn’t bring the power cord for the router.  NO INTERNET IN THE CAR!!!!  Bummer.

Weird Wednesday?  Wired Wednesday? (obviously not today it wasn’t).  Wistful Wednesday? (no).  I’ll have to come back to this.

Not much of significance happened today, so maybe this post is more about being disciplined to write something – anything – for the sake of staying active. That should cover it.

What defines it? Having tech stuff? No… Technical babble three levels above nerd? Not really. Writing code? Nope.

Grr.

Net nuisances…  setting up my geekster blog and it’s only fitting that I plug “The Tech Guy” (Leo Laporte) in my blogroll.  Cool – link up – only to find that his site is overwhelmed at the moment and it’s throwing database errors.  The price of popularity.

Blog… Cool.

Finally catching up with the world. I consider myself a major, homebrewed geek but I’ve never blogged. More to follow shortly. I think you’ll be surprised.
