    I expected tattoos, animal skins or horns content.

    Buying anything from DQ for a boy is borderline child abuse. Just sayin';)

    Otherwise, speaking of a work week reorg easily places you in the catagory of a visionary. Run with it.

    The Boy is in an apartment now. He came home for 6 weeks when school went all on-line. All we had to move was clothes, some food, and a laptop. One trip in the VW, so not too bad.

    Yeah. A small or mini blizzard is all they can get, and only on rare occasion. But your point is valid...

    @unixfish, you're a freakin' WILD MAN!
    Thank goodness I don't hang around with you and risk having you drag me down with you.

    Some of these have not been opened in decades, I just don't have the heart to throw them away.

    I hope that includes K&R. I haven't touched C since the late 1980s.

    It does. I have / had a friend that worked with Kernigan, Ritchie, and Pike at Bell Labs. He had some interesting stories about them getting stuck on projects and going back to someone's place to drink heavily.

    I have not seen or heard from that friend in a long time. I wonder where he is now?

    The only time I ever even look at C code is when some package will not build on my Linux machine. Heck, I don't even try to manually build things unless I am absolutely forced to, so even that is rare.

    The last real C project I did was back in the early 90's. It was a real doozey too.

    Ditto here. Restaurants, schools and stores open. Virtually no cases. I've had to do a rethink of my utter contempt for the provincial government. Well done folks! Hopefully the Atlantic Bubble will reopen soon. Me and Ms. d are getting a little stir crazy. Never been to PEI. May just have to check it out.

    Ha, that sounds remarkably familiar :) A few more classics... note both Old and New Testaments...
