I just had one of those strange sexist revelations people in these modern times have every now again. Like folks in the sixties assumed long hair meant a girl, and folks in the thirties assumed pants must mean a man, I naturally seem to assume that things done on the computer are done by men. The template for this blog was originally designed by Eliza Wee. Until just a few seconds ago, I'd unconsciously maintained the fiction in my mind that Eliza was some sort of Eastern European male name, probably akin to Elisha. It never actually occured to me that Eliza could be a chick name, even though, naturally, outside of this context, I would always assume an Eliza was a girl. And you think you're enlightened.
