I'll intercede on this minor point. The list is 'freewheeling', but it is
not conversational. FoRK is for bits, silly wabbit.

I like to remind myself that each post is archived, and to ask 'why': what in
this post merits recording, and second, will this post allow the thought to be
unpickled in the future?

Rambling, diversionary, tangential volleys are great, but I like them with
bits: in recent memory, the 'timekeeping' standards was an excellent example
from last month.

Remember, there can only be one Tim Byars.


PS. Don't forget the Pyrite Rule: if you could imagine VOXing something, don't
ever FoRK it :-)
