I'd like to formally announce my weblog as the official Weblog of the Internet. I figure that if Pentax can announce the Official Digital Camera of the Internet with apparently no IETF or ISOC input, I can do the same for my weblog.

Or maybe someone needs to ask Pentax just what "official" means in this case?

Update: Okay, I was a few months too late. But as JR suggests in the comments below, I'm going to claim the title of "Official Web Site of The Internet" instead. I should get some t-shirts made up.

This is the official comment of the official weblog of the internet. No other comments on this weblog are official. And certainly comments on other weblogs are not to be given a second glance. This is OFFICIAL.

So we can declare High Performance MySQL as the only official book for MySQL, Steve as the official and only person who would use ASM for a site, Learning Perl as the book for perl..Kasia Trapszo as the only official girl who can drink two pots of coffee and still stay proped up when its April and still freezing over like winter..So Jeremy, pick an official position for yourself yet? :-)

By the way, your Linux distribution is only official if it has been kissed by Linus' child. By no means does that assure that you will not have kernel panics or imply any warranty on the part that your RAID 5 array will not suddently shut down and die all at once.

To become Official Weblog of the Internet, I think you need to ask The President of the Internet http://www.ceoblues.com/archives/2004/february/thepresidentof

Shouldn't that be "The Offical Weblog of The Internet(tm)"?

Sorry Jeremy, I beat you to it.


I'll grant you the title of "Official favorite weblog of the owner of the Official weblog of the Internet".

It looks like Steve O has me beat, though.

Yep, sorry Jeremy, but Steve-o's got you beat by several months and a search query.

You, can be the Official Website of the Internet.

Thanks to your update, I now hereby declare that I'm the official visitor of the official website of the internet. In addition, I'd like to officially proclaim this comment as the official comment of the official website of the internet, which is not to be confused with Daniel's official comment of the official weblo ...

It seems that Pentax has received only 4 of 5 stars for their Official Camera. That's 80%. By my standards that's a B-, and a low one at that. Rather disappointing, actually. (Although, maybe with the trend in grade inflation it's more of a high B or low A.)
