Seems like a pretty good time to switch to

So, I am.

feel free to follow there if you desire.

Some cultures have a rich tradition of street food.

America has mall food courts.

Don't fight me, just sob into your basket of deep fried cheese curds.

Hrm, there are a LOT of EVs and PHEVs coming out in the spring...

hoping @Valette @robotkarateman and the rest of Anchorage are ok.

Looks like that was a heck of a shaker.

Yes, this is from birdsite.

But if you're an open source author and maintainer, and want to get paid by the big companies that use your code, you need to read this thread:

I think I procrastinate via checklists and requirement documents.

There's something weird about that, but I'm willing to write up a document I can use to specify the process to determine what it might be.

Words and phrases my wife doesn't know that I'm not sure I should tell her what they mean:

* Camel Toe vs Moose Knuckle
