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!

The Ehgloo Daily Scrum has to be one of the better blogs that focusses on Canadian politics. Solid analysis, and not overtly slanted ideologically, which is pretty unusual for bloggage. Then again, Ehgloo is not a one-person operation, and its contributors are a well-educated and experienced bunch. I'll get a link to Ehgloo up on the sidebar of this blog in the near future, along with some other good stuff that I find.

I suspect that they had "scrum" in their name first, but I assure you that I came up for the name for this blog quite independently of these guys. And now...

Here's how I came up with the name for this thing

I posted a message to a web forum on a while back under the name of Vancouver Scum. Another person responded to my post, mistakenly referring to me as Vancouver Scrum. I liked that pseudonym even better, so I decided to re-appropriate it. Thus, you have before you the Vancouver Scrum.

So, Douglass McNicol from Mackenzie, B.C., I'm buying you lunch.
Not really. It's just a figure of speech.
