I kept finding myself with stuff to say, but it seemed innapropriate for the forums here. I suppose I could post in "wheaton labs" but that seems to be tied tightly to stuff that applies to this property - and the stuff I want to say is for people that are here and not here and about stuff that might go anywhere. Plus, the stuff for the labs probably shouldn't be diluted with a bunch of my tripe.
I don't feel comfortable creating a blog. I'm a forum person. I like the idea that lots of people can start threads and I may or may not participate.
And when people comment they sit on a soap box that is the same size as mine.
Although I am a freakishly arrogant and obnoxious git, and when talking to most people I feel surprised that they have the mental capacity to type or make sounds ... I feel that most of the people on this site have brought me a great deal of insight and knowledge that makes it clear that I should shut the fuck up and listen. And to those people, I feel if I share my crazy thoughts, then I will often get some excellent feedback - of course, I have to sort it out from the foolish drivel, but it is nearly always there.
Further, by putting this stuff in this forum, the people that think I'm a dumbass blowhard can configure the forums so that they never see anything in this one forum. Safe from my tyranny ... sort of ...
