Don't neglect your spouses!

Information Technology can be a lonely occupation, as it tends to attract the geekier of us. Worse still, due to the historic bias within societies for the conditioning of gender roles, the female population within IT is smaller than it should be. Too many of us fritter away our free time with our square-headed girlfriends instead of more normal human activities like eating, exercising and - heaven forbid - actually finding out what someone elses skin feels like.

As I right this, my beloved wife has stomped off upstairs while I finish my email (which could have waited) and write this blog entry (which, let's face it, you're probably realising that it wasn't a smart move to read).

Anyway, learn from my mistake! Don't neglect your spouses. (For some reason, I feel the plural of "spouse" should be "spice"). I'm going to go and spend time with mine now - hopefully, she'll still be pleased to see me.

Good night!

I'm glad to see someone is thinking of important things. My own better half and children are now in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The modern digital life drives us to loneliness, and it is not just the IT professional. We simply need to resist it . . .

Hi, Jimmmo. I just got back from a weeks vacation spending 24x7 with the wife and kids. I think that they are glad to get me back to work.
