As Pseudonym mentioned in the articles section, I did stuff up my wording:

Yep, I did mean a masters-only community when I said "a wizards-only community".

I am very aware that there are wizards amongst the Observers, Apprentices and Journeyers who class themselves (or are classed by others) that way because they are not prolific contributors to the open source community. Hmmm... that's one of the reasons I was expecting to stay an Observer longer than I did.

Social Creature Stuff...

Had a lovely birthday yesterday and a great party the night before. People turned up from half-an-hour-early-eeeeek!!! to after 1am (doors-close was 1:30). Geeks and kinksters got along fine. No one freaked out, no brains imploded (that I could tell) and everyone seemed to have a good time. The party finally wound up at about 5am with a geek zonked out on one couch and me on the other because an overly-inebriated kinkster had been sent to bed and there's only one bed at the moment :(
Saturday night's Spring Carnival party thingy was also great. Details may scare geeks but feel free to ask if you're interested...
Going climbing today with friends at a local indoor-climbing gym. Geeks should climb more... it uses just about every muscle and works out that "I'm gonna die!" feeling - excellent for maintaining perspective!!!
