in reply to Of all the gin joints in all the universes in all of fiction, I had to walk into:

If the Inn of the Last Home (from DragonLance) had been on the list I would have had a really hard decision. But without that, Milliway's is is the obvious choice for me followed by the The Prancing Pony.

Regardles, this has to be one of the best polls I have seen in a long time!!  ++!!

    You're giving me a hook to do this...

    Thanks go to psini for reminding me about the White Hart, the Old Phoenix and the Broken/Mended Drum, to kyle for the Draco Tavern and the Mos Eisley Cantina, to smokemachine for Moe's Bar, Gavin for the Last Chance Saloon, mandarin for the Titty Twister, and martin for the Leaky Cauldron and NYC (Nick's jazz club).

    Most of all, I prostrate myself in front of tye for reminding me about Rick's Cafe American and the Blue Parrot, and inspiring the title of the poll.

    You guys are the best!

[Corion]: No. It's just that I'm comparing the same output file twice, instead of comparing the output files of the two runs %-)
[Corion]: Lo and behold, running a program with the correct input files yields the correct (and expected) output. Yay me.
[1nickt]: Got a MacBook and am expected to develop directly on it, ironic given the recent thread about that.
[marto]: Corion, some not too serious issues with the kids, hopefully, other than that just dealing with commuting by car again in the winter, not much fun so far, and there's no real 'bad' weather yet :)
[marto]: 1nickt, glad to hear it, I'm sure you'll bring improvements to their stack in due course ;)
[1nickt]: Just trying to adjust to a new culture. Better doc than I am used to , but quite a bit more Agiley meta-bullshit; at least half a dozen meetings a week, strict "sprint" schedule etc. I'll adjust. And I hope to just switch off after the "scrum" each day at
[1nickt]: ... the end of the afternoon. marto How are you, snowed in? Mum and Dad expecting snow today in Surrey. (Have 5" on the ground here in NJ. And my son's high school in SOCal closed until after Xmas due to fires.)
[Corion]: 1nickt: In a sense the meta-bullshit might even be beneficial to you as you get to hear the cow-orkers talk (or not talk) about the issues you perceive. I think Agile is mostly about the meta ;)
[Corion]: 1nickt: On Sunday maybe 10cm of snow fell, and the airport closed, and the trains stopped running etc :) It always comes as a surprise that snow falls here during the winter...
[marto]: 1nickt, no snow, just some ice on the roads and the usual idiocy associated with humans and driving in less than ideal conditions
