I came to a few realizations tonight.

First, after reading a post at Slashdot about how the P2P population is growing again, which states toward the end:

Keep in mind however; these numbers do not represent the population of the BitTorrent community, which would surely add many millions more.

I realized that I am strictly a member of the "BitTorrent community" they speak of, and no longer a user of P2P software of old (relatively speaking). I allegedly download only full albums via uTorrent and Mininova these days.

Second, I realized that I still attribute more credibility to the things I read on Slashdot than I do to the things I read on Digg. I think it has more to do with the quality of writing in the individual posts than it does the amount of time the sites have existed. When I read Slashdot entries they have a consistency to them that I just don't see over at Digg. Maybe this can be attributed to differences in moderation. I don't know.

And last, I realized that I have been working too much. I have been thinking about work way too much when I'm not actually at work, I have been dreaming about work (and apparently talking to my girlfriend about it when I'm half-awake), and my typing speed has dramatically decreased over the past week or so. My hands and my brain could definitely go for some good ol' fashioned R and R.
