Still Bloggin!

Yeah, I'm still here. Down with a nasty cold, sitting on my bed with a laptop (thank God for 802.11b!) ... Anyways, I always find it interesting how people generally place a great deal of significance in arbritrary numbers (present company included). This should be my 100th post. What does that mean? Absolutely nothing, in fact, I'm surprised it took so long to get to 100.

Back in the fall of 2000 my Technical Communication prof was explaining how something called a "blog" would be revolutionary. I wasn't paying attention. Now it seems like everyone (HardBlogger?, GM?) has one. Some surveys have claimed 2/3 of blogs are not regularily updated while other put the guesses at: 1/2 or 1/4? Either way even 1/4 of millions is A LOT of useless blogs! To counter what Tai said: "Do I really feel like what I want to say is worth another person?s time to read? Unfortunately, the answer is I usually come up with is ?No.?" I say, you don't need someone else to read your blog for it to have value.

So my coworker started his own blog recently, my Intel buddy in Austin is giving a second stab at his blog and I just found out some of my family friends discovered my blog! More readership, more blogs! Alright. Now excuse me while I get some more tissues.

    What I’m doing for the sore throat that I just got the other day: herbal tea. It’s from some company called Traditional Medicines, which sounds hokey, but it works for me. Licorice root, fennel, cinnamon bark, alhea root and slippery elm bark.
    I never read the ingredients before, now it sounds a little wierd. What exactly makes the elm bark slippery?
