Twenty years ago, Richard Campbell was one of a bunch of people I knew peripherally through the local Vancouver computer bulletin board system (BBS) community. A couple of years later we met in person, then became part of a large group of modem geeks—including Dave and Alistair—who hung out late at night, went camping at Long Beach on Vancouver Island, and did many silly things. Now he's a big database expert and, this month, (reluctantly) has a weblog:
I've always considered blogs a plague, just the vomit of the masses upon the Internet. Now its my turn to hurl.
I'm glad to be able to keep up with his activities without actually having to (gasp) contact him or anything. And that little "CDF" icon at the bottom of his page is quite retro, very 1998.
Thanks to Mark in the Cayman Islands for the pointer.
