Why is it that people seem to think I have something to offer?
Since I started this lark I have been asked for quite a few interviews. They have tended to tail off a bit in the last few years but I still get the occasional one, usually from some student who is doing a thesis on idiotic old farts on the Interwebs.
I don't mind them. They can be a bit of craic, and anyway who am I to stand in the way of the advancement of science and understanding [even if it is only concerned with the murky corners of the Senile Web]?
There are a couple of questions which invariably crop up.
Why did you start?
How the fuck do I know, even if I could remember that far back? As far as I recall, it was a case of here is a server and here is some software so let's stick the two together and see what happens. It's a bit like giving a kid a car and a set of keys and asking why he started driving? Why does anyone start anything? Did I have some Machiavellian plot to take over people's minds and eventually dominate the universe? I think that post was already taken by Supershadow anyway?
The other one that is the cause of some internal merriment is What is Head Rambles about?
How the fuck does anyone categorise my musings? Some say Personal, some say Political, some say Humour, some say A Load of Bollox.
How the fuck would I know what it's about?
I only write the damned thing.
