Ever since I started it, my blog has had a sub-title (or whatever you'd call it) of "Linux, Perl, MySQL, Open Source, and whatever other random stuff catches my interest..."

But I really don't say as much about Linux as I used to. Sure, I talk about MySQL and Open Source from time to time. The "other random stuff" seems to be most of what I do (aside from semi-regular Google bashing).

This makes me think I need something new and slightly more accurate to put there.

Any suggestions?

Feel free to be as rude or crude as necessary in order to ensure honesty. Or maybe just something funny like "washing my ass on the digital soapbox of the internet."

Okay, maybe not quite that.

Please, save me from myself. I'm no good at this.

Oh, why not fall back to that great reservior of bloggers, Bad Puns?

Far too esoteric for anyone:
Hey's from Z.

DB geek puns:
My Sequels

Really horrible Beck riff I used to use but stopped because of induced pain:
I got two Turing tables and some microcode

More (probably liquor fueled) entries later.

How about make the subtitle the pronunciation of your last name. I don't know if anyone (who doesn't know you) knows how to pronounce it properly.

Couple of ideas:

1. "All That AND a Bag of Chips"
2. Yahoo - Technology at its worst. ;)
3. Making the World Safe for Everyone
4. Guaranteed to be Terrorist Free

Or any combination thereof... :)

Silly geekiness: "Easy as 3.141592653..., and just as random."

Name confusion: "Random Open Source Stuff, and my name's not Ross."

Defeatist, self-deprecation humor: "Call it what you like; I'll write."

Zawodny anagram: "Zealots are welcome - ogre demons, not yet" (wondered about open-source demogods ;-)

how about we go back into the archive and use "timing is my specialty?"

few suggestions:

"...for all the people afraid to bitch."

"I am not creative enough to come up with my own subtitle."

"blogging is cool. I am cooler."
