Say it ain’t so, Sam.

I just went to look up the URL of a comment I recently made in response to a request from Patrick Mueller, one of IBM’ bloggers, to play the “five things you don’t know about me” game that is making the rounds.

I got the following response:


Unexpected exception.

Status Code 404.

Message Page not found or error parsing requested URL

Exception Page not found or error parsing requested URL.

I tried IBM’s blogging software early in 2006. To use it then was to launch a denial-of-service attack on it.

Suggestion to IBM bloggers: leave the firewall and use WordPress. It’s more fun and more reliable outside the firewall. You’ll also learn more from those who will only be able to read your blog because it is in the real world.

PS: I finally tracked down the URL: Some things about Dave.

(Part of the game is to tag five others after you respond, though I have declined to do so as IBM has a policy of not participating in “chain letters.”)
