I mean that. Seriously, you don't have to read this, you know. There are plenty of better things to do with your time. Time is valuable. You'll thank me in the long run (actually you won't, will you, you ungrateful bastard? You won't even give it a second thought and nor should you).

It was originally quite vague, but it's now known by a few people (luckily, people that I like).

Any views expressed of course, are my own.

Of course, if you do stumble upon this and don't know me, feel free to get in touch, it'll be interesting.

Auto-write

In the middle of the night is when I think of a lot of things.


I don't think that's unusual, it can be quite a peculiar time.

So I was thinking about the infinite amount of monkeys typing on an infinite amount of typewriters, that sort of thing, and those story-wheel things and random sentence constructors that I used to piss about with when I was learning BASIC programming. For some reason I then wondered if you could take a well-known passage from something, then randomise certain words and see if it would still be recognisable from the original.

My instinct is that it wouldn't take many substitutions before the passage became unrecognisable gibberish, no more than four or five substitutions, something like that. Bet someone's done some work on this. Can't be arsed looking it up now.
