JAPH. (That's right -- I'm not Really Inexperienced any more.)

I'm not just here, I'm here [perlmonks.org], and here [javajunkies.org] too, I ramble randomly in my philosophical blog [blogspot.com] and my other blog [blogspot.com]. Soon I'll come in a convenient six-pack.

Sharpest Banana In The Bunch

[ #17207 ]
It honestly did not occur to me to ask the guy who first evangelized Slackware to provide me with a copy. Yes, I'm not always that bright.

On the other hand, I told him I was going to try to get a copy, and it never occurred to him to burn me a copy, either, so...I don't feel that bad.

I've been footling around with Orkut so much the past couple days that I'm slacking off on writing code, which I need to be doing now that my work schedule has provided me a few hours of morning time where the SO is at work, my parents all don't know I'm home (I've effectively got 4 parents total, 8 if you count the SO's as well), etc. Quiet time.

And I keep trying to spend it socializing. :\

  • I have been to the Orkut site but of course I can't get in. What is the attraction? Is it the features of the site? The other members? The fact that it is exclusive (at least somewhat)?

    I know you are on at least one other site where you can socialize even if the male/female ratio is a bit lopsided. And there are many places on the net to socialize that don't require an invitation.

    This is not a knock on Orkut. It is just my curiosity meowing.

    • I think the exclusivity preserves a certain semblance of order. There are a few trolls here and there, but in general, if you don't behave, you don't get invited in the first place.

      I don't know how I feel about that -- kind of like I've been brought into a country club, as if it's elitist -- but on the other hand, I generally think I'm an elitist anyway...and I don't know many people I haven't invited to Orkut at this point, informally or otherwise, so I don't really feel like I'm excluding anybody speci

      • Frankly, I don't know wether I want an invite or not, although I do thank you for the opportunity. I spend most of my 'web time' either here or at PerlMonks. On the other hand it might be nice to talk about something other than Perl once in a while(did I say that?).

        Yes, please arrange the invitation. If nothing else I would like to see what they say about themselves. Do you need anything from me? Once again, I appreciate the offer.

        • Just an email address to send the invite to. If you send a quick message to rover at sdf dot lonestar period org the invite will probably arrive within an hour or so.
