    Whoah! Somehow my landline internet is running at 1.06MB/s! That’s slow for normal people, but really fast for me. Utterly unheard of.

      @matigo <3 Thanks so much!

        @matigo I’ve got an ultimate key, and a home premium key. Whichever you’ve got. :)

          @matigo I’d torrent one, but the one I tried just then contained malware.

            @matigo ISO. I’ve got the key. :)

              Any of you guys have MSDN? Lost my Windows 7 CD. :(

                @keita No, that’s not the same thing — a conductor rides on the train, rather than taking tickets at the station. @matigo

                    @matigo At least here and in the UK, the conductor is a mostly antiquated role — they were responsible for taking tickets. The driving was an entirely independent responsibility. Do the Japanese call their train driver a conductor?

                      @matigo There’s context to their posts — you just need to be following the right people. :P @keita
                      cgiffard
                        @keita It’s almost a no-brainer on a train — the only real thing a driver can control is the acceleration/brake balance. All the line switching is automated anyway! Just plug in a computer and be done with it. @matigo
                        cgiffard
                          @matigo I thought the conductor and the driver were two separate things…?

                            @simon_w I’ve been waiting to get rid of the stupid union jack in our flag forever, but nooooo — monarchists are apparently legion. (Are they masochists, I wonder? Who else volunteers to be subjugated?)

                                @keita (Also, 男女平等 assumes a gender binary, which we know not to be true.)
                                cgiffard
                                  @keita Could 性平等 work instead? Or would people just not understand it?
                                  cgiffard
                                    @matigo @keita I’m sure you could specify any variety of easing modes, and tweak a cubic bezier specifying your optimum acceleration curve. :)

                                      @matigo The conductor is the person who drives the trains in Japan?

                                        @tewha You’re supposed to be able to get two or even three billion dollars per character if you do it right — but I’ve only ever been able to get just over a hundred million. :-/
