The men’s room behind my office is out of order. I’ve always wondered why the phrase is used to mean “broken.” Out of order shouldn’t mean the room is unusable, just that things aren’t where they should be. Like a synonym for messy. Though I guess if someone walked in and found the sink on the ceiling or something, that would certainly meet both criteria.

It’s hard to imagine that there are those who still see the PC as ascendant, and not merely one option available to gamers, an option fraught with costs in time and treasure that not every person feels like fucking enduring when they get home from work.

Via today’s Penny Arcade. Without realizing it, Tycho has hit on exactly the difference between the groups of people who are going crazy in forums about whatever this week’s gaming injustice might be…they are people without jobs. Once you have a job and start caring about things that have actualy value to your life, you kind of gloss over meaningless crap like this. People who rant and rave on message board clearly have not just come home from work exhausted. Ranting on messageboards IS their work.

I’m starting fresh with WordPress for all my blogging needs. Why? Sadly, it mostly boils down to my thinking that WordPress is just a more pleasant interface to work with. There’s not much more to it than that. At some point I hope to move the older content over here, but in the meantime, here’s a link to my old blog.

Edit: I just looked at all the old crap. Never mind. Sheesh.
