Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2003 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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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.
I am currently rearranging a stack of purchase orders. Soon they will be in order by PO number. As Jon Carroll once repeated to himself (more like this), "Man shall be saved from repetitive labor."
Update: Whenever an order number contains the sequence 1077, I automatically think The Bone.
