Learning to tie my laces


Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 12 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

I’ve just spent the last twenty minutes or so with Ian’s Shoelace Site, relearning how to tie my shoelaces with the Ian Knot and Ian Secure Knot. And, believe it or not, I actually think it was time well spent. So thank you, Ian, for making such an interesting site, and teaching me the world’s fastest shoelace knot.

I’ve corrected the spelling error in the title, but not in the Permalink since the various services which are pinged when I post will have been notified only of the incorrectly spelled link. That’s why the two are differing (not that I expect many people will have noticed).

Sad, but oddly entertaining…
