The Best a Man Has Got

Sorry to pop in -- and back out -- after a long, postless weekend, folks, but uncontrollable events are conspiring to steal my precious time with you. It's only temporary, I promise. Please don't pout.

Plus, one of the beasts clamoring for my time and attention -- moving all of this drivel to a new, faster, and more stable server, fingers crossed -- should help us spend more quality time together soon. Ditto for the long hours I've been spending researching a notebook computer purchase. When I can connect with you from the comfort of my couch, or car, or warm fuzzy toilet seat, how cool will that be?

(Don't answer that. Nobody wants you thinking about my 'warm, fuzzy seat'. Least of all you. Trust me on this one.)

"When I can connect with you from the comfort of my couch, or car, or warm fuzzy toilet seat, how cool will that be?"

Of course, to enter this magical lollipop world of speedy servers, roaming writing, and blogging bliss, I've got some work still to do. But I can't leave you with nothing, so I'll direct your attention to the newly updated, finally marginally useful 'Best' page.

What's the 'Best' page, you ask?

Well, it was intended to be a place where I could highlight a few posts and features that I hope are particularly fun. The idea was that it could be a starting point for new folks, or a resource for anyone trying to track down an old favorite. Where 'old favorite' could mean a 'hilarious post', or a 'mildly chuckleworthy bit', or 'anything even remotely amusing; where the hell has he been all weekend?'

(At the moment, mostly that last one.)

Of course, I created said 'Best' page a few months ago, without any content... and promptly forgot about it. Three months' worth of visitors (read: two people) have flooded through this site since then, no doubt drawn to the blank and desolate 'Best' page, where they would stop and ask themselves:

'Is there nothing on this site worth noting?'

Maybe not. But I've noted it anyway, on the updated and hopefully useful 'Best' page, so please go and have a look. There's still not a lot there, but I'm working on it. Three years of shoveling this crap isn't much time to develop 'gems', you know. Not the way I roll.

Anyway, there's new stuff on tap for tomorrow. Until then, I'll be sleeping, whisking files around, and -- if there's time -- putting in a few Monday hours at the office. This weekend's a wrap, people!

Maybe I'll remember to tell you when I think I post should be on the Best page! Then you can know what is humourous to OTHER people.
