Which OS are You?
Which OS are You?

Amiga OS. Well I guess it could have been worse.

SQL Server worm hits Microsoft. No doubt some heads rolled.

Opera 7 is out.

A couple of new high profile bloggers: Dave Barry and William Gibson. Gibson is a writer so he writes. Barry is a humorist so he doesn’t. Go with Gibson.

Also 17th century blogger Samuel Pepys.

I had the chance to buy 100 shares of EBAY at their IPO offering price of $18. Didn’t do it. I won’t make that mistake again with Google if given the chance. Simple example of why they kick ass.

Had drinks last night with a guy from work who ordered a Blue Monday – 2 vodka, 1 Courvoisier, 1 Blue Curacao – served as a martini. Pretty good but bartender thought it was too sweet so he went with 2 vodka, 1/2 sour 1/2 simple syrup, 1 Blue Curacao. I liked that one – I dubbed it the “Whiskey Blue” for the bar we were in.

Sure it’s just on paper, but losing $100,000,000,000 in a year? WOW. AOL. AWOL.

Working in Cincinnati was weird – airport in Kentucky, work in Cincinnati, play in Indiana.

In hindsight “Whiskey Blue” is not so good of a name for a vodka drink – but I have the benefit of clearer thought tonight. 🙂
