About the blog title

Posted by on in Blogs

Let's face it: “Mark Edington's Blog” just doesn't have a whole lot of zip to it (not that this “Unknown Identifier“ thing is much better).  You see, several of my cohorts around here have these catchy little blog titles, so I'm under intense pressure to come up with something!

For those of you who program with Delphi it may sound somewhat familiar:  If you are writing some code and misspell something or forget to declare something the compiler will complain about “undeclared identifier” when you try to compile the code because it cannot figure out what it is.  So the title is really just a play on that theme.  I got the idea for the name from Nick Hodges when he wrote about me in his blog.  He said: “Mark’s not one of the more well-known R&D guys, but his code is running on all your machines”, which I think sums it up pretty well.  Oh, there was also some drivel about me being a “very nice guy” but you can be sure Nick forgot to run that one by his fact checker before posting it.  Anyway, I don’t think anyone really cares what the title of the blog is anyway, right?

    You are probably right - but when I made a refresh of FeedDemon and sow "Unknown Identifier" on the moment I was thinking about some problem in news feed software ;). "What is this: Unknown identifier? One more bug in 'perfect' software world!" :))
