Eric's sense of humour.

Eric thinks that his sense of humor is 'dry'. But I find his writing very light and funny yet it conveys the message.

Check this excerpt from his article on SCM Introduction.

"Second of all, please accept my apologies if my dry sense of humor ever becomes a distraction from the material.  I am writing about source control and trying to make it interesting.  That's like writing about sex and trying to make it boring, so please cut me some slack if I try to make you chuckle along the way."

I think that was hilarious! What you say?

I thought it was also quite funny.

Bobs Your Uncle == Eric

Even when hes trying to be self deprecating, hes funny!

The "Bob's your uncle" poster is essentially correct.  I've been called worse.

However, it's fairly obvious that I did not post that comment, since I know how to correctly spell the word "pompous".

/me breaks out in a fit of maniacal laughter...

Just don't make fun of Eric's name.  I learned the hard way.

Instead, make fun of the fact that his bio pic looks like a DUI mugshot.
