What kind of a stupid name is "The Shrubbloggers"?    |    Why is there a "2.0" next to the crappy logo?    |    You could well starve if you feed on our RSS.

Grumpy Greg
October 28, 2003 — 5:45 pm

Well, my good friend Greg finally took the plunge and is now up and running with his very own blog. Everyone give a big and hearty welcome to

Now, let me tell you a little bit about Greg. I had the fortune of knowing and working with Greg off and on for the past eight years or so. First in Hawaii, then in Maryland. He is an analyst and a programmer at heart. Once, while we were all sitting around the office quite bored (I suppose we should have been doing work), I commented that I’d like to play a game of chess. Greg thought that that was a good idea. However, he tactfully pointed out that we had no chess board at hand. Did this deter Greg? Hell no. He turned to his SUN OS computer and began hand jamming in a chess program with some form of visual PERL I had never heard of before. Not only did that game work, but it worked over the freaking network. I’m telling you, the guy is a programming genius.

So, it comes as no surprise to me that although there are simpler ways of building a blog (I.E. Movable Type), Greg invented a completely new way. Who knows, perhaps it will be tomorrow’s standard.

And so, without further ado, I give you Grumpy Greg.
