exercising my inner beavis

Exercising my Inner Beavis, it's a kind of funny name for a liquor store. From after a job interview in Salem, MA, April 25 2002.

Quote of the Moment
If anyone chopped the top off my car I'd be upset, but car people are a bit strange and seem to like it. Not quite sure why, it never looks the same, lets the rain in and puts you in the middle of a car where the back end is doing different things to the front end. I suppose if you are that type of person, you don't care about having wet carpets or which direction you are heading just as long as you are Easier To Notice (have you noticed how, the more one tries to be noticed, the less worth noticing one is?).
--From "Underman's Cars: Lamborghini", Phil Vendy, The Underview, Sydney, 1998. I thought that that last line was a very good point. On the other hand, a kind of studied casualness isn't that great either.

Slashdot had a set of the worst programming bugs ever. Now I don't feel so bad! (Actually my code tends to pretty ok.)
