I've Heard This Called Blegging

Official thanks and acknowledgements need be extended to my son Andy, who set up the technical end of this Wizblog project for me a couple of days ago, and is hosting it as well as providing an informal Movable Type 101 course on the phone...(well, once)

By day he's a mild mannered 24 year-old Computer Engineer working for IBM in Durham, NC, as part of their WebSphere product group doing application and sub-application development, sales force training, and customer support.

He has a blog, also in its relative infancy, called The Middle for some reason, where the very brave can learn some web content terminology and other twenty-something stuff, and come to wonder, as I do, where he got the tendency to be a wise ass.

As I am now in only my second day of participation in the blogosphere, hopelessly addicted already to the process, and yet still utterly clueless about the nuances of the software, I will continue to post nice things about Andy until he calls me and explains how to do all the things I don't yet know how to do. I will post paeans to his wonderfulness, sing his praises, and otherwise verbally kiss his butt, as I await a few moments of his sage telephone wisdom.

Enough for now, it's late, and I've got to go dust and polish the Andy Wismar Shrine, the old third-floor bedroom he once called home. (It's a striking replica, by the way, looking much like it might have looked the day he left for college five years ago.)
