Did you know that the tradition of using the phrase “Hello world!” as a test message was influenced by an example program in the book The C Programming Language. The example program from that book was inherited from a 1974 Bell Laboratories internal memorandum by Brian Kernighan, Programming in C: A Tutorial.
I’ve been in two minds about going blogging for a couple of years. I didn’t want one more thing to waste time with, especially having in mind that I’m writing challenged (actually communication challenged). Being an introvert type I’m expending great deal of mental energy trying to express myself.
Anyway, I hope communication is skill and can be improved by practicing it, so in the long run it may turn out to be the reason to blog rather than not to.
Another thing is that like most people I forget. Few days ago I stumbled upon a linux related mailing list archive and it was really funny to reread my own posts from like 8-9 years ago. Likewise now when I and Antonia wonder about when something has happened we just go to her blog and check it out. I hope I will have the patience and persistence to update this blog regularly so it would become a valuable database with memories.
And last but not least: I’ll be preparing for IELTS certification soon so blogging in English is one more way to exercise.
Originally I wanted to write about many more things in this post but I don’t want to become boring. So here I stop and as Vetinari would have said: “And now, please, I’m sure you all are very busy, don’t let me detain you”!
