I have experienced some extremely geeky moments since joining the blog commmunity, but today has to top them all.
First of all, many of us have been anticipating the birth of Lee’s daughter, Jayne—so much so that we have been leaving comments, voting on her name, and stalking poor Daddy on IM.
Then, today at the Smackdown, we wrote haikus about it.
And then, I noticed Lee come online and pounced on him on IM. Amber got there at the same time, and we had a three-way chat from the delivery room. I won’t spoil the newsy bits about the birth… but I have to say that I nearly crawled into the monitor out of sheer joy. I could not believe how exciting it was to be able to send messages to Lee and Mary before the baby was more than an hour old!
And then, the ultimate geek moment: Lee sent us a pic via IM, and I downloaded it. Amber couldn’t open hers right away, so I asked her to turn on her web cam, and voila! She was able to see the pic Lee sent from the hospital in Denver, CO, displayed on my monitor in Los Altos, CA, via webcam in Brussels, Belgium.
I thankyew. Geeks rule.
