Thanks, I think…

Rob @ 3:38 AM

While cleaning out a week's worth of backlogged emails. I found one from someone informing me that I have an entry in Wikipedia.

I'm flattered (in a weird way) and weirded out (in a flattered way) by this. But it does bring forth a dilemma for me.

While I find no errors in this entry, I could certainly tweak a few things and add to it a bit, being more than a bit familiar with the subject matter... but what's the etiquette here? Would it be pushing it for me to contribute to Wikipedia regarding myself? I'm not sure the Internet really needs even more of my ego cluttering it up than it already has.

Granted, I could have some fun with this, for better or worse.. but the little cartoon angel and devil on my shoulders are currently giving me nothing but the same dumbfounded expression I'm already wearing.

I'll leave it alone for now, I guess...

I just wonder who started it. Come forward, my odd GNU-referencing fan known only as i8myh3d! Anybody who likes Super Mario and Mick Foley is okay by me.

    It'd be funny if you added to the entry, then somebody reverted the changes, alleging them to be vandalism.

    Oh, so how did you find out about it anyway?
