A fortuitous hypertext trail

Following trails of hyperlinks can be fun. When looking up some javascript type comparison details, I had the good fortune of stumbling onto another, unrelated trail of links; one that I thought I’d share with you.

It all started with an entry in Eric Lippert’s Fabulous Adventures In Coding blog. The fun part (at least for me, I have a penchant for reading semi-diaristic details of complete strangers’ lives) came in the end, filed under “other news”.

Follow the link, read the entry. Eric’s funny — which is to say that he writes nicely and elicits laughter. But not only that (another link, here), he’s an internationally recognized expert on getting boys to like you, and, as the entry clearly shows, a nice guy to beat.

Do note that in the end of this third entry, there are links to parts two and three of his answers for searchers.


Oh prolix garbled supercilious perfidy

Or, excerpts of some spam I’ve recently received.
