  In Short

25 May 1999

10:59 PM: Wow. Writing and writing and writing and hello, brain! Shiny! But that was fun - taking another stab at writing a semi-sorta introductory article thing about PHP. Sure hope it doesn't suck. At least I get to make fun examples.

Panicked yesterday when I got my new ATM card because I forgot my PIN. And once you start trying to remember something like that, it's hopeless. You force all these numbers up, and ever phone number you've ever had or known starts mutating in your mind. Then today I found out that, technically, they won't give me a new PIN in any branch unless I have a "currently valid photo ID." That means that even though that's my picture on the fucking driver's license, they won't take it because the license itself is expired. Hey look, I don't want to drive the damn thing, I want to use it in an ATM, you know?

But I went to the branch anyway, to see if I could get lucky and find a lazy person who wouldn't care, and gave the machine one last shot. Bingo. I was so busy being teed off that the muscle memory came back and I punched in the right number.

I'm sure I could learn something from all this but I don't want to. Nyah.

Willfully blind self-indulgent nebbish or amusingly quirky old coot? And how bout that local sports team? Discuss among yourselves.

All names are fake, most places are real, the author is definitely unreliable but it's all in good fun. Yep.
