I found the funniest email in my inbox the other day from Dan Sickles,
I LOVE IT!!! I could not agree with Dan more than I do in regards to my dislike of the DOM API (No offense, Mike, but uh… yeah, well, anyway :D)
But wait, it gets better!
In a follow-up response to my inquiry regarding use of the above in a post **, Dan signed his response with,
-dan (aka Phantom - http://www.oreillynet.com/xml/blog/2006/05/on_closures_persistence_web_br.html)
I know all of you were just as puzzled as was I, and in fact I can only assume that many of you were losing sleep, wondering who “The Phantom” truly was.
It’s like my own little “Grassy Knoll” mystery has been solved!
Now you can FINALLY get some rest!
Me? Oh, I’ve been sleeping like a baby… I don’t let things like this get to me. You, on the other hand, should look into some counciling, or something. This Conspiracy Theory obsession of yours is getting out of hand! ;)
Setting this aside (for now — If an intervention proves necessary… well just count yourself as being intervented (I’m not even going to bother looking that one up… I like the sound of it, whether it’s a word or not ;),
Thanks Phantom (aka, Dan ;)!
