The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Kind of a drab

An old friend of mine used to sign into the local dialups as "Dull N. Boring". (I asked him once, "What's the N for?" "Null," he said.)

Mr Boring has no real input into this site, but clearly it is informed by his spirit: on the splendid table that is the Blogosphere™, I'm purveying, at best, a can of sub-Chef-Boy-Ar-Dee pasta-like substances. A dented can, at that. Still, this isn't the dullest Web site in the world — it's only a tribute.

Hmm. Am I the only one who read the "-N-" as the shortened form of "and"?

Actually, no, but the usual syntax for logons in those ancient times (we're talking middle to late Eighties here) often didn't allow for hyphens and such, so he rendered it "N." to make sure he could get some sort of access.
