Code, nerd culture and humor from Greg Knauss.

It rained all last night, and this morning the ground was still wet when I went outside to the car, the air thick and deadening. And when I heard the heavy whump-whump-whump of the helicopter overhead, hidden above the gray clouds, I did a quick circular sweep of the sky and tried to pull out the rocket launcher.

Which, of course, I didn’t actually, y’know, have.

I’m finally playing Half-Life 2 (yes, yes, late), and the goddamned thing is seeping into the real world. I know at some point someone is going to throw a whole, plucked chicken at me and I’ll freak out and start beating it with a crowbar.

The last time this happened, I’d been playing a lot of Battlefield 2 and couldn’t look out the window of my office without seeing a sniper cross-hair superimposed over the people down on the sidewalk.

Which wasn’t all that different than normal, actually.

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!
