Sometimes it takes drawing a picture to make certain things painfully obvious. For instance, I thought that having a peer of networks who only talked to two other peers was a good idea until I realized, after drawing a picture in Dia, that when sending a message to your two other peers, you would only have a network of depth 1... duh! You end up with a circle. Not good. Not at all. Here's the picture.

I've been watching a lot of TeeVee lately. Ms. Stacy noticed that Jeri Ryan on Star Trek Voyager has big jugs. I pulled my amazing skills of knowing stupid TV trivia tricks out of my bag. My pal Rosco noted when I lived back in Oregon that I could always place somebody in a TV show as having been on another show somewhere else at sometime. He used to laugh at me but I could consistently pull it off. Tonight I noticed Scott Thompson from Kids in the Hall and the guy who played Elaine's boss in Seinfeld. No alien foreheads could fool me!

And now we know why I don't watch TV anymore... I'd rather sic my obsessive-compulsive disorder on programming langauges and punk bands.
