What is {6230289B-5BEE-409e-932A-2F01FA407A92}?

I have been adding {6230289B-5BEE-409e-932A-2F01FA407A92} at the bottom of my posts.  What posts you ask?  Well every post I am doing on the internet.  MSDN Managed Newsgroup forms, woodworking forums, and this blog are just some of the places.  Why you ask?  Well I want to be able to find all my posts that are unique to me.  It just so happens I share my name with several other people on the Internet so I wanted a unique name that was anonymous that would find only my stuff.  I will be adding to my BIOs when I write articles, and my web sites.  This way I can go to Google and search for my GUID and find everthing on the Internet that I have done.  You can do the same, just generate yourself a GUID at: and get started.




  1. hihi - and I'm first to comment? After a year? It turns out the internet is *not* full with curious people after all

  2. Hey Wayne,

    This is Henri (we met while I was at PC World -- I'm now back in Paris). I did find you by googling your guid!

  3. What's the idea here, Wayne? Just a tag for identification purposes? I admit that I bit and Googled it - I thought perhaps it was a Bitcoin address, though it didn't look quite right. Anyhoo ...
