Slash. Dot. Match.

I was reading Hulks' post about the $250 of sweet sweet currency he won because his wife either has good luck, or can see through cardboard tickets with her bizarre - almost frightening - x-ray eyes.

The title "It's always nice to have a small win." stuck with me a bit, because I was trying to think if I had any small wins of late that I could share with you all. I don't in the way of money, more seems to be going out the door on unhealthy pursuits than comes in, but I did have another type of small win.....

I got my first article linked to on Slashdot.org

I've probably had a few submitted before, but none ever got put up there. It's nothing that fantastic in the grand scheme of things, but I've always considered Slashdot.org as the 'Neo' of online geek portals, so to get something linked to there was a nice 'moment'. I regularly get stuff referenced on N4G.com, Play.tm, and occasionally DIGG...but Slashdot was a nice feather in my imaginary cap.

I like wearing that cap... just because you can't see it, doesn't mean it's not there...

w00t.

Being a fellow journalist, I congratulate you. :) It feels good, doesn't it?

I've been linked up twice so far, not bad for three months of proper freelancing. ;)

I guess that's why Ben likes me so much. :P

The truth is Gir, I don't really like the piece that much... I'm happy with the result, but not the work I put into it... so no linkage.
