Why Unix Spiders? A friend at University came in to lecturers one morning, looking rather frail, and told me of a dream he had in the night. He had a nightmare where he was attacked by spiders with the label 'Unix' on them. We all thought this very amusing, and the name stuck particularly when I wast thinking about Unix/Linux problems. Which I do on the odd occasion. Seemed liked a good name for a blog, something which I've wanted to do for a while now, so here it is!
Also: I'm a Unix/Linux hacker and I work in the area of information retrieval - which use spiders.
Hey, take your pick!
