The Vancouver Scrum

On the move!

Agh! You’re still here? My new site and weblog, is now up and running; new posts are building up over there, never to be mirrored here. Go! What are you waiting for? All the stuff worth keeping has been migrated over to the new server, and I don’t anticipate making any more posts here.

Bloggers and webmasters: Update your links! Simply replace with in your blogrolls or bookmarks to point to the new site. Old posts will remain on this server for as long as the people at Blogger/Google allow them to remain; unfortunately, I’m not going to bother to come up with any way of converting permalinks on this blog to their corresponding posts on the new site. Yes, I plead laziness. I also realize the irony of switching away from Blogger just it starts to add features that the demanding blog nerds insist upon.

Thanks for reading and linking, and see you over at!

Cribbed off the Frank Magazine forum:

A liberal and a conservative at the beach see someone drowning 50 feet offshore. The liberal tosses 100 feet of rope, but then drops his end to go off and help someone else. The conservative reels it back in, and tosses 25 feet because he thinks it would improve the drowning man's character to swim halfway.

The person who posted this probably swiped this off of some other source. I'm sure that I've heard it before. Nonetheless, a big thank-you to praenomen2 for posting it. If anyone really gets their knickers in a twist, I'll pull this.
