today i was running with someone and i started
to get slightly annoyed at him for being slow to
respond. after taking the time to get to know him
just a bit better, i learned that he was blind, and using what
he called a screen reader.
i felt really bad, at this point.
but my whore point here, is that i think it's really, really
cool that a blind person is playing legend. it made me
realize that i should have a bit more patience, and
a bit more consideration.
again, i just thought it was the coolest thing i've
seen happen here in a very long time, and
i wanted to share it.

Actually, there are a lot of folks who have different reasons for
being slow to respond -- how about a good helping of patience for each
other in all cases? :)
Sometimes I get into a frame of mind where I want everything to happen
as quickly as I'm able to think it, type it, etc. -- easy to trample
on other people and miss out on things when you're running a mile
a minute. When I get too twiddly and feel like I need everything to
go faster, faster, fast as possible, it's time for me to fire up some
extra windows to distract myself, or else just chiiiilll. Oops, I am
rambling off topic :)
