I would now like to announce a monumental change in the way I live my life.
Inspired by this blog entry, I have elected to get with the times. From now on, I will be using only one space after a period instead of two.
To be honest, I hadn't even been aware that there was any kind of controversy over this issue. At some point in my childhood, when I was learning to type, someone told me, "Period, space, space," and that was that.
Now I have to un-train my thumb from doing that automatic double-pulse after every period. It won't be easy. It won't be fun.
But with the support of my loved ones, I think I can do it.
