I sometimes wonder what will become of this site when I’m gone.
When I say gone, I mean gone as in lost interest and gone away doing something else.
Or maybe gone as in gone to the Great Smokey Pub in the sky.
Will it just languish here gathering cobwebs and spam?
Or will some enterprising soul print it all off and flog it as a chart topping best seller?
Will the Grandchilder read it from head to tail, top to bottom and marvel at the wit, intelligence and insight of their Grandad?
Or will they clad it in lead and bury it as deep as possible in order to preserve the family’s dignity?
How quickly will it be forgotten?
A couple of hours?
A couple of days?
I did contemplate putting a doomsday machine type chunk of code in here. Its clock would tick inexorably towards total and complete catastrophic destruction, unless I nip in every now and then to reset it.
But I would probably forget about it and would wake up one day to find this site has become a massive hole in the ground lined with glass, with the surrounding neighbourhood uninhabitable for the next thousand years.
Probably the most likely scenario is that the name won’t be re-registered and some enterprising young soul will grab it and set up his own Head Rambles, selling porn and Viagra.
An ignoble end to an ignoble site.
It’s kind of poetic really?
