I'm trying to abide by the rule “if in doubt, don't send it”.
So, after writing a potentially contentious e-mail just now, I wrote at the bottom of the e-mail:
p.p.s. This post is a masterpiece. It's going to be a shame when I don't press send.
I then clicked 'save' and closed it.
Now it will live in my drafts folder for a few months, become forgotten, and then one day be deleted (i.e. moved to the 'deleted items' folder).
I just chuckled to myself when I wrote that at the end, realising that I wasn't going to send it, and feeling sort of ripped off that no-one was going to be able to witness my true wit and altogether dark and dry humor.
So, I thought I'd share with you, my internet groupies.
John. (Your fearless leader).
p.s. There are still far too many of you reading this thing. We need more unsubscriptions here please. ;)
p.p.s. In other news. VB6 still sucks. However, it does not, I might add, suck as much as C++ (from a 'readability' and 'potential to really fuck it up' perspective).
I'm not a groupie; I'm just studying you. ;)
When you figure me out, please do me a favor, and let me know what you find!
I've been studying myself for (well <g>) 24 years now, and I still have no idea what's going on..
Oh yeah -- Happy Birthday!
I know it's over in your timezone, but it would be just gearing up in this one (assuming you work the standard 8-5 and are leaving work 1.5 hours early to hit the seedy (in a bad way) bar up the road).
All of your assumptions are wrong, but thanks. :)
