/whois Baldric?

Me: Kevin, I’m a dude (and what a dude), married, and living in Cape Town. To earn money I develop software, and in my spare time I hike and enjoy most casual sport, read A LOT, play computer games, complain about the world, nitpick other people’s written grammar while making mincemeat of my own (“know thine enemy…”),  and generally try to remain the most humble person I know. My greatest ambition in life is to grow old (and considering the alternative, I think that’s fair).

Baldric: Baldric-Man, much loved defender of the world (and in particular damsels), is my alter-ego, birthed in the dim conditions of a boring, low-paying job many years ago. As such my friends (both of them) sometimes call me “Baldric”, as they are never quite sure which one I am at any given time. (My wife, for that matter, is sometimes respectfully referred to as “Baldrina-Woman”, with much fearful quaking and reverent knee-buckling)

Otherwise, I’m a Christian (what some would call “committed”: I struggle along…), I’m white, and I’m absolutely in love with South Africa. I admit freely that I entertain mildly bigoted and stereotyped views at times, because it’s more fun that way. To deny that would be, well, pretty blonde. (Oh, wait, I never entertain communist thoughts. You won’t catch me dead thinking like a damn commie!). 

Hope you enjoy my blog, cheers for now!

Actually you were in the “middle-paying, highly stressful job” phase…. You’re about 4 years too late there.

Hi Kevin, I’m trying to track down the owner of the inactive twitter account @digin which I notice you follow. You wouldn’t happen to know who owns that twitter handle do you? I’m helping setup a festival to teach people about food, urban agriculture etc in St. Albert, Alberta, Canada and the name of the festival will be DigIn. We would love to take over this twitter handle if possible. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

You wouldn’t consider that payment you make to the bank every month on a car loan,
a ‘discount’ on the price of your car, would you. Simply visit the paid focus group websites
and submit your information to them. This occurs only in the qualification part of
the survey.
