something new to read (and yes, I’m lousy at keeping in touch)

I got an email a while back from the guy who runs this relatively new blog: “Musings from the Underground – asking to link here. dude, this is the Internet: link all you like, we’ll just make more. 🙂

but go read his stuff, y’all, because (a) it’s sweet of him to have asked (tho one assumes he was also hoping I’d read…and link to…his) and (b) there’s some funny little musings in there.

and (c) he links to a woman who uses the name that I’d always thought would be perfect for a weblog: Memex, which is also pretty darn readable.

You are 39% geek.

You are a geek liaison, which means you go both ways. You can hang out with normal people or you can hang out with geeks which means you often have geeks as friends and/or have a job where you have to mediate between geeks and normal people. This is an important role and one of which you should be proud. In fact, you can make a good deal of money as a translator.

Normal: Tell our geek we need him to work this weekend.
You [to Geek]: We need more than that, Scotty. You’ll have to stay until you can squeeze more outta them engines!
Geek [to You]: I’m givin’ her all she’s got, Captain, but we need more dilithium crystals!
You [to Normal]: He wants to know if he gets overtime.
