I customized the section include air dates and show hosts and I have been copying over show notes (which has been an adventure since HTML does not always play well with BBCODE) and as I do this I am reminded of a lot of great times with great friends. I ended the show after 4 seasons because towards the end, it started to become a chore and a burden because expectation were there every week for people and I was trying to keep everyone happy but at the cost of my own enjoyment of the show. When I realized this, I knew that it was time to end it.
But man, while I was doing it, even the last stressful episodes, I had a blast. This was one of the funnest things that I ever did in my life. It was me along with some of my best friends just talking tech and hacking and just being ourselves and doing what we do. We were thinking, challenging boundaries, questioning authority and taking stances on what we believed in. We were learning and teaching at the same time. We were laughing, joking around, and even, on some pathetic occasions, singing. I bore my soul on that show sometimes. I look back and do not regret anything I ever said on that show and if you really want to know who StankDawg really is and what he is all about, just go back and listen to these shows.
That was me.
That *is* me.
I am not, nor have I ever been, fake and I know exactly who I am. You will not find me saying or doing one thing and then going on livejournal or a blog somewhere and pretending to be someone that I am not to people that don't even know the real me. If you listened to those episodes, you already know the real me.
