So I guess I can still use this space

Or something like that.

Thursday, December 27, 2007


Well, because my good friend Dave was unkind enough to point out my abandoned blog, I felt the need to post something new here.

Thanks a lot, Dave. (jerkfaced idjit.)

So anyway, this is my 200th post, according to the little post counter thingamadoodle on my stats page.

Not that it means anything, because when you post in the wee hours of the morning, nothing much makes sense and if it does, it's still nonsense.

What I SHOULD do is go through and delete just about everything on here (it's all crap anyway) and start fresh... or maybe start a new blog elsewhere. Not sure. I'll get back to you on that.

On Steve Irwin

I've been gone a while, but I felt obligated to write a brief blurb about the late Steve Irwin, who died Monday of a stingray strike to the heart while filming a television special on marine creatures.

I liked Irwin. I felt he was a bit overexposed, but I felt he had an enthusiasm about nature, including some of the most unloved creatures out there, that was extremely important, and likely turned countless children onto an interest in the animal world.

There are many who did not like Irwin's methods, or felt he acted too juvenile to consider him a real conservationalist. This dislike saddens me, and I feel people in this mindset are missing the point.

To turn an average child onto science, one has to show the exciting parts of it. There are boring parts to every job, but if you show them the rewards of the work then it will outweigh the lackluster. When trying to turn on the average person to Chemistry, one does not pull out a chalkboard and write the equations to show chemical reactions... one rummages through the chemical closet and blows stuff up. Irwin did this for biology, trying to show the interest and the risk of the animal kingdom. And like it or not, Irwin did constantly raise awareness for the conservationalist cause, and not just the “cute” animals either.

Love him or not, the loss of Irwin is a loss to future interest in the field.

Rest in peace, Crocodile Hunter.

Last Post on Old Computer... No, Really This Time

This is also the final time I am using my old computer. I know I said this before, and then ended up looking like a goof after I screwed up the implementation of that one, but seriously this time. After this, I am finally switching fully over to the new machine. It works, got everything up and running, I've just been using both.

But this machine has been acting a bit funky. She's been a good girl, but it's time to retire this one and move onto the next.

So until I finally have something relevant to say... Rock on.

I Hath Returned... Sort Of.

Okay. Long hiatus, but I have returned.

The reasons for my temporary abandonment of the blog are multitude, but I'll run down the important ones.

I originally intended this to be more or less about politics and philosophy. Soon after I started this, I hit a period where I was absolutely and ridiculously jaded about life. I felt that my nation's politics had entered a point of such ridiculous idiocy, that there was no point in bothering writing about it. So I wrote stupid little things instead, dumb jokes and posts about random girls licking things. It was all very boring. So I quit.

Now I am back. I'll be reevaluating if I even want all my old posts here, but I'll start new stuff in a day or two.

So until then... Rock on, kids.

How cool is that?

One Year of KnightErrant

It's been one year since I made my first post!

(It has also been almost two months since I posted...but oh well.)

195 posts later, and I still manage to occasionally put stuff up here. Cool.

I'd like to take this anniversery moment to plug Cloudstrider again. Both the old blog at as well as the brand new forum at!

Rock on, kids, time for a nap.

The Knight Is Confused

Who's on first!
What's on second!
I don't know!
