In the beginning

Before there was this blog on, it was on And before it was a blog at all, it was an email list.

And actually the email list still exists, sending out the weekly extract of this blog, as well as the Guide to Australia (when I get around to updating it) and News You Had To Have (which has become my weird news blog), along with some headlines from Geekrant. One day I also hope to update the Great Vomits page.

The 800th edition of the weekly email is going out tonight. I must say, way back in 1990 when it started, I had no idea I’d still be doing it all these years later.

I started reading toxic custard on aus.jokes, probably when I should have been studying in 1991. Doesn’t it frighten you that it was “all those years ago”

I remember getting the internet in ’91 via the computer labs at RMIT and reading toxic custard workshop in the newsgroups… those were the days.

I really miss the ascii art.
