Code, nerd culture and humor from Greg Knauss.

I drove something like six hundred miles yesterday and learned a few things in the process:

  • Bug ichor is clear. At least that particular bug, and at that particular angle.

  • Never trust a restaurant whose name is a pun.

  • The same three women sing the frequency -- "One oh two point seven!" -- of every FM radio station in the country.

  • The sign that says "See Canyon, Next Right" is directional, not instructional.

  • You know you're in the boonies when you hit "Seek" on the radio and the first five stations it finds are, in order: religious, religious, country, religious, country. Also, use of the phrase "Rockin' the tri-counties area!" is a sign from God to speed up.

  • When you finally give up on finding a quirky local beachside restaurant that isn't either packed or completely lacking in parking and head into IHOP, it's still worth your time to find one that doesn't smell like a wet rag.

Hi there! My name's GREG KNAUSS and I like to make things.

Some of those things are software (like Romantimatic and Buzz Clock), Web sites (like the Webby-nominated Metababy and The American People) and stories (for Web sites like Suck and Fray, print magazines like Worth and Macworld, and books like "Things I Learned About My Dad" and "Rainy Day Fun and Games for Toddler and Total Bastard").

My e-mail address is I'd love to hear from you!
