...and yes, I do live in Hayward now.

This is not my box either, but the result of a digital cable channel scan on Comcast.

No idea what this means. :S

Good point.  I think it's ever so slightly different:  after flipping through all the channels, I found they are all radio (no video without the descrambler box, turns out).  I think this horribly old Fedora box is streaming audio to those other channels.

Pardon my language, I was feeling a bit punchy by this point in the evening.  :)

It was good too, though I was a bit too far gone to ask what the hops were.  Super aromatic, almost floral, rather than purely bitter/astringent.

Same here, though I finally realized the grates probably cover big pots sitting in holes.  Still cool.

Had to repost this; I can't stop thinking about it.  Our system administration directory is gigantic, flatter than Kansas, and completely disorganized, and right in the middle was a broken link (a missing file, for the non-technically-inclined) in angry colors.

I did not doctor this in any way, except to cut off any context that looked like sensitive information.

Had a fun little adventure in gmail today; got someone's second 50 year reunion invitation and felt bad, so I tried to do what little I could:

======
<event organizer>, I am certain that this message came to <my own e-mail> in error.  I have no idea who else is attempting to use this e-mail address or what their correct address is, or I would contact them and notify them of the misunderstanding.

Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance...
======

Got a response a couple hours later:

======
I was sending this to <someone I don't know> who may have the same email address as you. His email address <my own e-mail>
I will try sending it again. If you receive it could you try forwarding it to him.  Not sure what else to try.  
Thanks
<event organizer>

Sent from my iPhone
======

I'm not sure where to start, but I keep coming back to "may have the same email address as you".

To quote Larry the Cable Guy: "Can't fix stupid!" God bless you for trying! :)

The best example I've found yet of the self-righteousness that makes me so hate stackoverflow and the rest of the trollexchange family.  SUCH a simple and -- dare I say it -- germane question, so deserving of a thoughtful answer (of which it did get several, each validating the question in and of itself), permanently shut down as always, despite being SEO'ed to the top result (with no external indication of its status).

Plus, they fragment their domains so inconsistently that they take several search box widths to exclude from a search.  Sigh.
