I'm probably the same way. Got to milk my 3 digit UID for all its worth. :)

I've never gone to a meetup. I'd be self-conscious, feel out of place, and so on. Add travel, and forget it. If there was one here in Detroit, i'd at least consider it.

I did meet one slashdotter though. He got me an interview in Toledo. Though i don't remember who it was, i remember his smile when i came through the door and feeling good about meeting someone else.

Last night, as the calendar shifted to 27 Adar, i became 42. My birthday is actually in Adar 1, but not being a leap year, there's no intercalary month, so its just plain Adar.

42 is cool and all, but as each year passes, i care less and less about birthdays. It's not more than just getting older. It's about understanding things, realizing how stupid young people are (like i was, back then) and just a general non caring. Life simply is.

Leaving the office yesterday, i got in at the 6th floor. First it stopped at the 5th and a man got on. At the 4th floor, another man and woman entered. From there we went straight down the other 4 floors unabated.

Mr. 4th floor recognized Mr. 5th floor and they chatted. Moments before the gates to freedom something like this transpired:
