Rory's Minions Rout Canucks in a Landslide
]]> The 2007 Caffeinated Codey Showdown is officially over and the votes have been tallied. Despite an early lead by the Canadian contingent (Justice Gray and D'Arcy Lussier), Rory Blyth rallied the troops and surged ahead to win both the Best Blog Humor and Most Fun with Multimedia categories in a landslide. Justice still dominated in the Best Post Title category and the anonymous ALT.NET Pursefight blogger edged out Fake Steve Jobs to claim the title for Best Technical Satire. Congratulations to ......

Mystery Solved!
In my last post I hypothesized what could have caused Scott Bellware to disappear from the blogoshpere so quietly and abruptly. I admit that I was leaning towards one of the options that involved alien abduction, but then after doing a little detective work I uncovered this little bit of photographic evidence.

Imagine my surprise the other day when I discovered one of my Scott Bellware links was broken. Panic quickly set in when I went to CodeBetter and noticed that his blog was no longer listed on the site. I did notice that my Bellware feed hadn't been updated in a while, but I figured he was just taking a break after the comment section of one of his recent posts devolved into the equivalent of a Jerry Spring episode. I had no idea that he was going to pack up his bags and leave codeBetter for good. ......

Guest Blog Post History
My official "homage to Justice Gray" guest blog post has just been published. Besides providing me with some of the most fun I've had in blogging yet, this post also inspired me to finally learn some basic photo editing skills (beyond just cropping and resizing) so that I could provide some appropriate visual aids to go with the post. Many thanks to my lovely wife for sharing some of her image manipulation prowess with me and to the creator of for providing such an awesome free tool. I ......

2007 Caffeinated Codey Final Showdown
The regular panel of judges used to select the monthly Caffeinated Codey winners are all far too hung over to competently decide the overall winners for the year, so I've decided to let the nominees fight it out pollDaddy style and then actually award the survivors real prizes for a change. Rules I have selected 4 categories with 5 nominees per category. All the nominees were either previous Caffeinated Codey winners or else featured in one of my review posts this year. For now, all of the categories ......
