computerguyJust how egotistical is it to have a website with your own name?  Don't know, don't care ... I am too busy being impressed with myself.  None the less, I hope you find something here that is useful, interesting, funny or all of the above.

The "computer guy" is an image I found on the web ten years ago and I have no idea who created it. There may be a dozen sites on the web that have this image in some way, shape or form.  If anyone knows where it originated, I would be interested in knowing.

At any rate, I found that image and thought it was the perfect representation of me.  The most common view my family has of me is of the back of my head while I am working at my computer.

So, anyway, thanks for coming to my site.  Come back often, bring a friend .... but please, don't eat over your keyboard.

nostairsSome companies have strict health requirements for their employees and there have been court battles, you can be sure.  But one company has found a creative way to weed out applicants who do not meet their standards ... all interviews are held on the second floor.

Yes, the Civil Liberties Union will stop this practice in the very near future on the basis that the handicapped are descriminated against, but it will be an interesting run while it lasts.

But is it fair for the ACLU to interfere in the hiring practices of a company which has only one service ... to deliver messages to mountain climbers around the world?  Imagine if you are on the face of El Capitan and your wife is pregnant!  That would be information that you would want to reach you before a ramp was built to your location.  I am just bringing up the obvious arguements that this fine company will make in court to defend itself.

Who is this company, you may ask ... well, let's just say that they opened their operation on April 1st, 2007!!!  'Nuf Said!

Some things in life defy catergorization ...

For some time, this site has existed only as a place for my to play around with new ideas ... but it offered nothing to a casual visitor.  Over the course of the next few weeks and month I hope to change that.  Look for information and files relating to Joomla!, the Bible and humor as a start.

Considering the variety of things I am interested in, perhaps it is clear why there has to be a section of site called "Potpourri."  Potpourri is a random collection of things ... look for more randomness, but see if I betray the randomness by developing some measure of organization.
