New taglines
Apparently it's some sort of law that every weblog must have a tagline. For a very long time mine was "UNIX, Perl, and short fuse". No, it wasn't great, but it was fairly descriptive and it was the best I could come up with.

Last year, as I was writing some example code, I changed it to "UNIX, Perl, Python, and a short fuse." For a brief time I considered adding PHP, or even "Languages starting with 'P'". Of course, I've been programming in all three for several years, but c'mon -- it's just not exciting. And despite my recent experience at work, I absolutely refuse to add VBScript to the list.

Finally, I decided I needed something brand new, and a bit more clever. I racked my brain, but c'mon, I'm a Computer Scientist, not a writer.

But then it hit me: the best taglines in the world come from the greatest comic strip in the world, Red Meat. So I'm stealing 'em.

Hm. Upgrades.
Note the shiny new Blosxom plugins over on your right.
