I always suspected I wasn't that interesting.

I was amused when I discovered that someone had created a Wikipedia page about me. And surprised by how complete it actually was. I even filled in a few blanks (unaware that this was frowned upon).

Now I've been deleted.

Easy come, easy go, I guess.

Ya want I should go to Wikipedia? Virtually bash together some Wiki heads?

I think that life as you know it will continue. I have a pedia entry because of my books that no one really updates or adds to -- there are worse things than not having an entry. There's having an entry that no one cares to edit.

Sigh. We're just ripples in that great pond of life.

Hey! On a more important level, loved the peepers.

(I always have a desire to answer your 1 + 1 question with "depends")

Google cache still has a copy from about two weeks ago. Looks like a pretty good summary – probably worth filing away somewhere, whether Wikipedia will have the page or not.

I added you back in, though it's not as purdy as it was before...

We'll see if it lasts. I tried to add a post about myself, to distinguish between Scott Hudson the pro wrestler and Scott Hudson the computer scientist that also found an asteroid. Mine was deleted as a "vanity" post.

Maybe some day I'll get an entry too...

As of this moment (2007-05-07T18:44Z) there is an entry there, courtesy of Scott Hudson. The interesting feature is the absence of all history.

This is a peculiar way by which all historical record about a page is disappeared. There seem to be a few other tricks in that compartment.

Thanks, folks, but no head bashing or page edits are necessary on my behalf. My ego is just fine. :-)
