Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2001 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
Today I got to read some more of Kenny Byerly's work. I've known Kenny since our freshman year in college, when we both lived in Freeborn Hall. I told Kenny about Segfault, the geek humor site, before I had even met Leonard, and Kenny submitted "Microsoft Bankrupted by Foolish E-mail Giveaway" and now it ranks even above my "If Shakespeare Wrote Error Messages" in the Top Stories of All Time.
Kenny writes terrifically, and I enjoy his stand-up comedy, and he's overall a fun guy with whom to hang out. It seems so even more today than it did three years ago when I watched MST3K for the first time ever in his room in Freeborn. I wonder how much that's because I've changed, and how much is because he has too.
