    Well yeah, but I do not remember all of those 900 years.
    My brain got full a few centuries ago and new stuff just pushes old stuff out.
    Even with some enhancement the human brain is so limited.

    Especially after all that travelling and yeah I can relate to that with a 12 year difference between me n Emily. Plus women don't have to wait to reload.

    Now you really do sound like Emily.....this sort of back fired cause if she sees this she may even put me in chastity.

    Leg it.....

    Yeah true, I really like mushrooms

    Aren't they for when he's gone :devil:

    I wish someone could tell me why I woke up so damn early -- I've been up for an hour already! :facepalm:

    But I gotta get up early tomorrow so I can go and finally deal with getting our truck's tag transferred to the new one, so it's just as well; I'll be ready for an early bedtime tonight, and maybe I'll actually be able to go to sleep!

    ELP is the first thing I thought of when Lucy said brain salad surgery. I also have the album but all my albums went under water and I am not touching them for a long time hoping they will dry out and the covers wont be destroyed.

    GEEZ. I'm working in a room FULL of people that are coughing their heads off. One is sitting right next to me. I know this probably sounds selfish, but I hope it's just allergies because I catch everything that goes around. My immune system SUX.

    I had never heard that song before. Of course I heard lots of other songs they did, but not that one. It did make my brain feel like it had a surgical procedure. :eek:

    It is not selfish to not want to be closed up with a lot of sick people

    It would behoove your employer to send suspected sick folks home - the will get well faster

    And keep others from getting sick. Thing is, we have some people that come in no matter what. And say it's allergies. Next thing you know, we're all dropping like flies because these people don't want to use any sick days.

    I hope you don't get sick. Actually, I say you aren't allowed to get sick.
    Well, OK you can get sick but you have to be over it before I visit again.:D

    No, selfish is going to work even when you know you're sick and contagious to others.

    Well I looked up cedar and it's a 10 out of 12! So, I guess it is just allergies. Hoping.
    Anyway. I just had the BEST oil change experience ever. They were so fast, and even vacuumed out my car! While waiting in the lobby they had **Just for Laughs(GAGS)** playing and I laughed the whole wait!!! I'm going there from now on! Jiffy Lube Yeah! :bunny:

    I'm blessed to have some wonderful people sitting near me. We have a lot of fun sometimes. But, it's difficult being in a cube 40 hours a week. The building we are currently in is huge and has lots of space and windows and I love it compared to the last building. The last one was downtown in a scary place and the cubes were tiny, no windows and the ceiling was only 7 feet high to save electricity. Talk about claustrophobia!!!

    Worked in a Data center for about 15 years. Except for when I was in the equipment areas it was open and huge. Some great people there too. Especially considering they were Humans.

    That's like here. I'm on the Data Team. There are other teams, and some nasty beeotches on one particular team. But the team and area I'm in is GREAT! They even put up with my goofiness.

    I worked in one of Verizon's largest data centers.
    Worked data, Software development and in the PIT keeping the servers running and doing software integrations/updates.
    We used the biggest honkin servers that Sun could make. Had 6 servers in a 3 running 3 failover configuration. This was for only 1 app.
    All of the other servers in the data centers used these servers as their hubs.

    We had similar datacenters in CA, OR, TX, IN, FL and a few other places. All interlinked.

    Maybe you needed to try a smaller size Jiffy Bag. You want it to be a tight enough fit for friction.

    A few but building them and supplying was where the money is if you can grow and distribute them worldwide.

    I have worked in JavaScript, Ruby and some Objective C years ago

    Oh and of course Linux

    The bubbles popped and caused to much friction.
    Think I'll stick to Emmy

    Very cool. I'm impressed Rixy. Good job! I'm just thinking my brain is getting too old. Wish I had gotten more into all this earlier. I did repair for 10 years and then training/report writing for 6 more. Now it's just T-sql with SSRS and SSMS.
    Well, it's awfully quiet in here today. So I bid you all good night! Oh, and Cromley, Nibiru isn't near yet.
