The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Have you seen this person?

Sya has:

Sometimes I stumble upon a blogger waxing on and on about how long he/she has been blogging and knows all the tricks in the book and is now a hardened veteran of the blogosphere. Then I check the archives and it only goes back for a couple of months.

Says this eleven-year veteran: "There's a book? With tricks?"

Funny thing about that learning curve: the more you know, the longer it gets. That light at the end of the tunnel? A tear in the fabric of space/time, caused by a MySQL error.

Heh. While the oldest entry in my archives was written in 1993 (and carries that approximate date), it was posted in my blog only a couple of months ago.

I am totally hat tipping you for this link. Good thing you're on my blogroll or I'd never find stuff like this! Hopefully the people reading my post on your post on this guy's post will buy a book on amazon through the link on my site. Then I can make mad money.

Ok, that was all intended as satire, but I feel somehow dirty after saying it.

Off topic, but thought you'd want to know:

Edwin Traisman, the inventor of Cheez Whiz died this week. He actually has a very important place in fast food history, that extends beyond the obvious Whiz connection. More importantly, he was inducted into the Wisconsin Meat Industry Hall of Fame. Despite his fast food and meat connections (and presumed diet), he lived to 91.

There's a fairly recent pic of him at the link. I must say that, like his most famous creation, he was remarkably well-preserved.
