‘Forgive me Father for I have sinned. It is 25 years, 3 months and 47 days since my last confession.’

According to Feedburner, Tim Hall’s Oracle blog aggregator has 723 avid readers.

One of those readers summoned up the courage to send me an email complaining about my continuous off-topic posts. Apparently, the straw that broke this particular camel’s back was my participation in the evil ‘8 things’ Oracle TagFest.

Forget the fact, my blog is not currently aggregated by OraNA which is purely a temporary oversight by Eddie and will be rectifed imminently (once my cheque for $250 clears).

Forget the fact, I didn’t tag 8 other unfortunates to propagate the Black Death. That was only because I have no mates and am very lazy.

I can only apologise. I owe you, Roger Howard, an apology. I never meant my inane posts to push technical content off the front page within 27.8 seconds.

I never envisaged that this blogging meme might possibly ‘inconvenience’ you. May the Lord have mercy on my soul. “Go in peace to love and serve the Lord. Oh, hang on, I nearly forgot your penance. 67 ‘Hail Marys’ and 43 ‘Our Fathers’”.
