Kicking and Screaming Into the 21st Century

Those well acquainted with me are already aware of the trepidation with which I take on all things digital. It's only fair to tell you—you know, whoever you may be—that I wanted to be sure creating a blog wasn't akin to investment in an 8-track or Laserdisk player, or one of those fur-collared sheepskin jackets that all the thuggish boys had to have when I was in fifth grade.

So if someone out there in the ether will promise me, that now that I've finally emerged from my technophobic cocoon, that I'm not metaphorically putting a phone in my car that requires one of those boomerang shaped antennas on the trunk, well, I'll get on with it.

Welcome to the world of blogging Adam. Kicking and screaming you may be, but within a month you will wonder what all the fuss was about :o)

I think I can promise you that thing about the - um, what the heck was that? Something to do with this thing quickly becoming obsolete? Requiring more parts, upgrades, gadgets, whatevers? Look at it this way, these things are not going away- they seem to be getting better and better and you'll be that much farther along the learning curve than if you'd never ventured out of your cacoon, right? Besides, the price is right. Looks great so far, Adam! Hope you have fun with it! (The voice of such experience I am, you know!) Snicker!

I was an "I don't blog" snob for the longest time, and now I'm pretty geeky with it all. (I still don't know how to text though.)

I promise you will love it in the land of Blog. Your Rhino boy is a great start. Welcome!
