My first post

This is my first post to Bill space D. Why Bill space D? Why not? Here's the short story about how I became known as "billspaced."

Back in 1995, when I bought my first Windows PC, my roommate was insistent on signing up for this thing called America Online. I had no idea what it was. It seemed like some silly gimmick to get me and millions of other unsuspecting computer idiots to spend money I didn't necessarily have to meet other unsuspecting computer idiots online.

Anyway, my roommate signed up and so did I. I wanted Bill D, as in "Bill D" but little did I know that I spaces weren't allowed. So, I did the next best thing: bill d, as in "billspaced." It stuck.

(Not that being somewhat blond didn't hurt.)

Now, 12 years later, I'm still using it as my "handle." That's the end of that story.

I'd like to tell you now why I created this blog. Mostly because "billspaced" was available and I wanted to get it before anybody else did. Have you done any WHOIS searches lately? It seems like every possible combination of letters in the English alphabet has been used to create domain names; there aren't many names left.

But billspaced was available, so I took it. And was available, so I took that, too. Blogger is my blogware of choice. It's easy to use, the hosting is free, and it's very popular. It doesn't hurt that it's owned by google, either. I am sure that helps in the searches.

This blog will be the place where I ramble on about the things going on in my life, both at home and at work. I may talk about my family (all good talk, by the way), my job, things that get under my skin, good news, bad news, and everything in between. I may post some book reviews as well. I'll try to relay facts rather than opinion; I have another blog where my opinions virtually bleed off the pages (Rants 'n Reviews). I have a personal finance blog called Money Hacks and a photography blog called Photododo. I also have a computer-oriented blog called Computer Monkeys.

I like to read, fish, cycle, weight train, and have a keen interest in photography, technology, and family. I especially like to play with my 1-year-old son. He's a prince.

Anyway, that's all for now.
