Nodes Of Note:This is going straight to my boss...He will enjoy it as much as me :D
Chatterbox Ramblings of Note:bart suspects a failed ambition is at the basis of the crisis (comparable to a midlife risis, though I think technically he's a bit too young for it.)
[archfool]: If the average human lives to be 90 years old, then: 0-29 = youth; 30-59 = middle age; 60-90 = old.
[telcontar]: I'm much too near "middle age" then
[telcontar]: though I think a the average is quite below 90
[Old_Gray_Bear]: I AM NOT OLD.
[Old_Gray_Bear]: I am mere 'well preserved'
[Aim9b]: Are the Tutorials downloadable, or must they be read online?
[thezip]: I'm very disappointed in my code... I was hoping it would finish writing itself this weekend

[marto]: without marto function booze not
[virtualsue]: gotta admire a person who will inconvenience himself for the sake of a principle, no matter how incredibly trivial the matter

talexb still recalls hearing about a speech recognition demo that ended quickly when someone shouted FORMAT C: and someone else added Yes, Enter! We're such geeks.
EvanK taunts the NodeReaper with a ripe delicious node...
[tye]: Rationalizations are more important than sex. Ever tried to go a week without a rationalization?
ChemBoy stares at his e-mail from tech support
[aaroninbeta]: Looks really helpful. I'll have to wait to read it all because I'm actually taking a final right now.
