According to the BBC’s On This Day site, nothing memorable of any note or significant historical impact happened, er, on this day in the year 2000. Indeed, 15 October 2000 was entirely unremarkable. Well, it was a Sunday, and nothing remarkable happens on Sundays, except perhaps for some bored 29-year-old with time on his hands and a very shaky knowledge of HTML starting one of those newfangled weblog thingummybobs. And even that, on a sliding scale of remarkableness, is about as unremarkable as a very unremarkable thing after it’s decided that it’s thoroughly underwhelmed.
I have a headache, yet even that dull thudding pain is failing to cloud the vague feelings of unease that I’ve managed to keep this site going for five years, when I’ve not managed to keep anything else going for that long. Ever. Gosh. You would think that I might have had something better to do with my time, wouldn’t you?
