Derek and I were talking recently and stumbled upon the pieces of what would make an amusing tombstone for him. So I've assembled them here.

Here lie the ashes of Derek Balling,
Dork Lord of the Sith.
He died of a heart attack.
That's gay as hell!

Okay, that's probably not funny to anyone else. But that's never really stopped me before. :-)

I don't think I've ever seen an entry in your blog that was more of an in-joke than that. There's only two or three people besides you and me that would get the joke. :-)

OK, in-jokes like that only stem from friendships. Good to see you aren't all tech.
