Too depraved to book a hotel

Saturday, May 30th, 2009

For my business trip to Hamburg next week I booked an apartment. But today they cancelled. First reason is that they find a software developer who does not have a mobile phone suspicious. Second is the text on my private website which says:

Death Knight Kai
At first glance, this clean-cut, well mannered man appears to be an average software developer, but a dark heart dwells within that handsome exterior. Kai is one of the most depraved men alive. Nothing is sacred to him, and with each passing day he sinks further and further into his darkest thoughts.

It’s not astonishing at all that they do not understand it. It’s an insider joke for people who played Heroes of Might and Magic IV back in the days, which features a death knight with the same description ("Jarvis"):

Death Knight Jarvis
At first glance, this clean-cut, well-mannered man appears to be an average knight, but a dark heart dwells within that handsome exterior. Jarvis is one of the most depraved men alive. Nothing is sacred to him, and with each passing day he sinks further and further into his darkest thoughts.

Strange is that someone would think that there really is a dark side to software development, and that those who have fallen to it would not only use PHP and Ruby on Rails, no, they would also devastate hotel rooms.
