Neglect is an ugly word. The connotations bring images of abandon children and starving puppies to mind.
Hi, My name is Barefoot and I’m neglectful. I’ve neglected the blog for a few days. I’ve been distracted with work. You know work. It’s that darn four-letter word that pays the mortgage and pesky grocery bill. I have to focus on it every now and again.
Right now, I’m creating thousands of tiny SQL statements. Oh, the joy! Problems solving with programming doesn’t get any better than this.
Then there was the whole Associated Content snafu yesterday. Seems they miscalculated the cumulative count of hits for the last few weeks. When caught and corrected, people were understandably bummed that their huge increases weren’t what they were all cracked up to be. Tempest in a teapot compared to the price of gasoline.
Speaking of gasoline, when did they stop mixing it with ethanol? My car ran just fine on that and it was so much cheaper. I hear Brazil makes ethanol out of sugar cane is is 100% energy independent. Brazil did it. Why can’t the U.S.?
We have tons and tons of viable material. We have the technology to build dual-fuel-source cars. I’m going to have to buy a scooter. My minivan is just sucking the life out of me.
