OUCH, hutcheson!

"Resource" is an encomium bestowed only by users; "authority" is bestowed only by previously recognized authorities. Anyone who calls himself either one, is just an ego with vocal chords.


Good enough zinger to go in my quote file.


Damn, now I'm gonna have to

Damn, now I'm gonna have to change my resource directories to Conglomeration Directories... Yes that's it, "Conglomeration of Slightly Related and Rarely Used Stuff by Me, Directory". Yea, that's a descriptive keyword phrase I can use as the Orginator and Creator of these piles of stuff AND that phrase will likely rank better anyway... Crap where did that search and replace text tool go...

Well paint my ass green

According to the WikiP - he he

A resource is anything that has identity. Familiar examples include an electronic document, an image, a service (e.g., "today's weather report for Los Angeles"), and a collection of other resources. Not all resources are network "retrievable"; e.g., human beings, corporations, and bound books in a library can also be considered resources.

My God! I have an identity? I'm a flipping resource, OK? bwaaa ha ha ha...

Authority - I shall go with this one from Princeton myself -

assurance: freedom from doubt; belief in yourself and your abilities


the power or right to give orders or make decisions; "he has the authority to issue warrants"; "deputies are given authorization to make arrests"; "a place of potency in the state"

WOW - seems I have authority as well... I may not BE one... but I sure as hell can ACT like one.. oh this is fun ( Dave roots around desk trying to find a Life )

Well I am feeling much better now... for a minute there I thought I was simply an 'ego with vocal chords'... well, maybe I am, it seems the jury is still out on that one. As long as I feel like a 'resourcful' 'authority' - who cares?
