the brainwashing of our world is not enough. i want to fork the brain and keep the child. if only to reread huck finn for the first time again. perhaps a new brain would help me find a reason for my navel. maybe even: to store salt in, so i can dip celery into when i'm in bed and i get hungry. thanks to someone around here for linking yaml one day. i listened on the list for a bit and started the yaml4r project (a YAML emitter/parser for Ruby). It's nice to be pitching in on someone else's project. Clark, Oren and Brian all have been welcoming and VERY appreciative of my effort. in many ways, it's often more rewarding to help out on a project than to push my own. i've been enjoying reading recentlog lately. I've thought it would be kind of cool for an advogator out there to make a weekly summary page. One-liners for some of the highlight entries. Perhaps even rank the topics and encourage more succulent content.
