    @doctorlinguist I've had garlic ice cream. Frankly, I thought it needed more garlic. @wildbill

      @doctorlinguist Celery soda, right? Have you come across any garlic sodas? #NeverEnoughGarlic

        @bazbt3 You're such a tease. You post this, letting us think you're back... then we check your timeline and realize it's just an automated post. :(

          @doctorlinguist When I first read this, I heard: Burn the land and boil the sea / You can't take the sky from me.

            @apathos I fired it up from the Dropbox dir and it detected it, and asked me if I moved or copied it (I said moved). I haven't tried from another machine yet.

              I think I context switched (switched projects) at least 30 times today #BrainFriedCoreDumped

                What happens when you upgrade your Dropbox to paid? You start doing strange things like throwing a virtual machine in there.

                  @bayprogrammer It seems that if you are headquartered in the bay area, you are either exponentially growing or you are dead. I want to deal with companies that are more like an oak tree than a yeast colony.

                    @larand @indigo My coffee philosophy is, "If you don't drink the good stuff, you don't develop a taste for the good stuff (so the office slop is fine), and you save lots of money."

                      @jnm Years ago I visited a monastery in Georgia. I'll never forget what a wizzened old monk (with a wizzened old Southern drawl) said: "I always felt kinda gypped. Everyone else got to play with C and Pascal, and all we ever got was RPG..."

                          George Coe passed away. "DURKEN: I will have to say this morning, I was the leader of the universe as I knew it. This afternoon, I am only a voice in a chorus. But I think it was a good day." One of my favorite TNG lines.

                            @jnm It's an alternate universe, so the odd ones are good and the even bad (no, it wasn't bad, but I did feel strongly like I was being pandered to).

                              For example, Pinky is a genius at comedy, and Brain's take-over-the-world ideas are seriously delusional. So maybe Pinky is the genius and Brain is insane?

                                "Pinky and the brain. One is a genius, the other insane." Which is which? Discuss.
