Hooray for work! Plus, random, and quotes.

First, the good news: I have the damn reports in a place where I can near-replicate what the Queen Bee was putting out, in like half the time, and broken down by job.

The bad news: it's still not done, 'cause we want bells and whistles on.

The good news: This stuff ROCKS. We issued a prototype to the people doing workshop today. They were thrilled to pieces. Oh, and I had a meeting with the web guy. We've seen each other's names all over, but this is the first time we've actually met. (He's married. There are pictures of the wife and family in the cubicle.)

Dan Savage tells it like it is to a self-inflicting masochist: "First things first: Stop hanging frying pans from the head of your dick." OMG. *giggle* *giggle* Death Note fic, Light/L

Heroism on command, senseless violence, and all the loathsome nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism -- how passionately I hate them!
Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

Honesty is the only way with anyone, when you'll be so close as to be living inside each other's skins.
Lois McMaster Bujold, A Civil Campaign, 1999

There are two classes of poets - the poets by education and practice, these we respect; and poets by nature, these we love.

As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain; and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality.

When I'm working on a problem, I never think about beauty. I think only how to solve the problem. But when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong.
R. Buckminster Fuller (1895 - 1983)

No matter what side of the argument you are on, you always find people on your side that you wish were on the other.
Jascha Heifetz (1901 - 1987)

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from a rigged demo.
James Klass

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.
Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

If women are expected to do the same work as men, we must teach them the same things.
Plato (427 BC - 347 BC)

If you want to build a ship, don't drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery (1900 - 1944), "The Wisdom of the Sands"
