First blog posts

June 26, 2006 No Comment

'When you hear the long beep, followed by the three small beeps, please leave your message.' That was the answering machine message of my friend's mum.

Then there's the instructions on the work voicemail: 'Instruct the caller to leave a detailed message, including their name, phone number and address.' The word 'detailed' really is stressed like that. I'm presuming if anyone leaves a message saying 'It's Bob, call me' then an error message cuts in to say it's not detailed enough and they haven't left their address.

A first post blog carries equivalent danger: 'Hi, this is my blog. After the word comments, please leave a detailed comment, including you name and IP address.' Maybe not. So let's assume you all know what a blog is. If you've come across it before there are any other posts, sorry. Read the 'About this blog' post on the right.
