Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2006 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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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.

"It's like a potluck, man. Do I like making cheesy potatoes? No. It takes me an hour. I dislike cooking. But if I'm going to eat everyone elses dishes, it's only right that I participate in the team and bring my own."
