Code, nerd culture and humor from Greg Knauss.

Every couple of weeks, after their baths, I sit the boys down and de-claw them. They get planted on the vanity's bench, facing out, and I sit on the floor in front of them, turned around and with each leg in turn clamped under my arm. You have to do this or when you go at their toe nails -- attached to their inevitably ticklish feet -- you'll get kicked in the face. Trust me.

This position leaves them looking down at the back of my head.

"Daddy?" Mikey said the other night. "Why can I see skin under your hair?"

"What?" I said.

"He's going blonde," Tom said.


"Like Lex Luthor," Tom said.

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!
