A key benefit from having a weblog is that you can quickly and easily post your thoughts on a topic for all to see. Alas, lurking within that advantage is the risk that you might post in the heat of the moment something that you later regret. Last week I made such a post.
Friday last week, in response to the new name “Windows Vista”, I took a rather gratuitious potshot at Microsoft. It is true that I find their new product name uninspiring, and I really did immediately think of “station-wagon” (I’m old enough to remember the Vista Cruiser), but my post on the topic brought no benefit to anyone. If you’re one of the people who read my post, I apologize for its inflammatory nature. You deserve better. Next time I will make it a point to calm down a bit and consider my words more thoughtfully.
