  1. Wishing everyone and their loved ones happiness and a very merry Christmas.
    Even if you are not religious, in the words of Tiny Tim

      May your branch of the wave function treat you well, MigL.

      Or may it collapse to whatever makes you happy.

      Depending on your interpretation...

      And you MigL. From a hottish place to somewhere I presume is quite chilly just now (I once worked a winter on the Maine-New Brunswick border).

    Buon Natale.

      Happy Holidays, MigL. May immunity be with you.

      Merry Xmas to you all too. Don't you worry Mig... they will.


  3. Shout out to all my British friends.
    England bombed Germany today.

      Congratulations Italy. Hope Saka grows from his missed penalty.

      Congratulations, Italy. Poor kid Saka; he looked devastated. We can't say Italy didn't deserve it either. They played brilliantly for many minutes.

      Yeah, I felt bad for him when they showed him crying after the game.
      Penalties have always been a crappy way to decide a game, but it's better than a coin toss.
      For me, there was no losers. Both teams played to their strengths, and I thoroughly enjoyed the match.
      Judging by the Copa America, South American national teams aren't going to be a big threat in next year's World Cup, so who knows, we might see a replay of this match next winter.

  4. I realize everyone is probably isolating due to the virus, but I do hope everyone and their families have a very merry Christmas.
    Give thanks for what you have, be happy, and stay safe.

      Thanks for the thought and lots of the same to you, MigL. Sharing those wishes to everybody else here.

      And a belated Merry Christmas to you! Due to COVID, a new baby and lots of animals, I ended up spending Christmas day alone at home. But I still enjoyed myself. 😄

  5. Wishing everyone a happy, and safe, Easter.

      Happy Easter ya'll. Stay safe, I hope we will all have the patience to keep this up, it's been almost 5 weeks for us here.

      Happy Easter!

  7. One more post to hit 5000 !

  8. Daylight saving time starts tonight, and I have to work in the morning.
    Have to be up an hour earlier: 4:30 am instead of 5:30.
    At my age, I need all the beauty sleep I can get.

    1. StringJunky


      Get some zeds in mate.

      05:30 sounds as much surreal as 04:30 to me. I've had numerous streaks of 20+ hours of work in front of the PC combined with presentations/configuration/harware setup at sites but they always started after 05:30. I'm not capable of basic tasks at that hour not to mention work. When I have say, a 5 day training which I have to compile from scratch, I start working at 11:00 and when I'm near the finish after a few days I start at 16:00 and work through the night. I must have some ancestry in Romania which I don't know about. 

  9. Whoohoo !

      Congrats! Always fun to chat with others and occasionally raise our blood pressure. Glad I get your perspective on things on a regular basis. :D

  10. This is fun.
    But sometimes, it makes my head hurt.

  11. Merry Christmas to all
