|01:33 pm - INTERNET|
Six years ago (to this day, according to the timestamps) I put up some stupid webpage involving dancing cats and abuse of the marquee tag and a 500K looped .wav file. I can't remember to whom I was trying to give a seizure but it apparently didn't work.
The page got boingboing'd today. Posted between a video of Jon Stewart taking Obama to task and a graphic someone made of the BP logo in bullets.
The webserver's been taken down to avoid horrendous bandwidth charges and I've gotten rid of the humonjus .wav just to be safe when it comes back up, but seriously people.
Know why I have that shirt that simply says "Internet." on it? THIS IS WHY, PEOPLE, THIS IS EXACTLY WHY.

Could be worse... you could be my roomie.
Once upon a time in late 2006 or early 2007 the MBTA revamped its website and I visited it with the Opera browser and it was bustificated beyond belief and I bitched about it on b0st0n
or something and it got picked up on Universal Hub and then the guy writing the Globe's T column said "Here's a tip, then: Don't use Opera" and I went off on him saying it's a perfectly cromulent browser goddammit and all I ask is W3C compliance and I may have called him Chuckles as well because that's what I call people when I am feeling sassy and anyway Slashdot picked up on the story and it sparked a browser flamewar in the comments and I thought that was pretty awesome.

It's worth noting that I was indeed writing angry at the time. I posted more coherent follow-ups in the comments, and the conversation turned from "he's being a whiner" to "ur browsar sux mine rules" and I was more than happy with that.

My 2-year-old son saw this and said "Cows. Some cows."
When I closed the window he protested mightily, then asked "Bring back the cows?"
When I did, he saw they were cats and said "I kiss the cats." I had to lift him to the screen to accomplish this.
There are brain cells in that tiny head that surely didn't live past this sequence of events.

This is why you're awesome, Mr Spatch.
You are one special guy, Mr. Spatch.
I think I have to go lie down with some anti-seizure meds and a fifth of scotch now...
So, um, what does it mean to be "boingboing'd"?
