Ok, so if you ask my wife she'll quite honestly tell you that I'm a bit retarded. This in and of itself is not untrue. In fact I can give you an example.
Quite a number of my friends, relatives are doing blogs now. I figure it's a neat way to keep up with them without the pain and hassel of actually having to email/talk to them. I figure that I should do the same (a common courtesy). I have a website where it was going to try and be a blog (an idea way ahead of it's time) but the concept of having to build webpages in pico (our college used unix for everything at this time) was really just a pain.
But back to the point.
I'm going to start a blog and I choose the name that I've had for approximately 6 years or so now. Crazykarl7. I find out that someone else has my name! What the heck? I've practically cornered the market on this name. I realize it's not a very good name but the fact remains that I've been using it for years and not once has someone else had it. I've got to tell ya, it really made me mad. So I tried other names to create this account with. cwillis, crazykarl7@, yada yada yada. Yeah well, it turns out that I had actually created the account about 8 months earlier when I was doing research for my boss. (He was interested in blogs and what information could be gleaned from them)
So I guess in conclusion of my first blog entry (8 months in the making), it's really not worth getting worked up about stupid stuff like a name...unless your name is something really bad like Bigthana.
