It took about 4 different ones before this one worked. Boot from usb failed too so I had to burn a disc like a peasant. It's now running, activated and well. Downloading a shitload of updates before I can transfer my ****.

Case 126
Tea for Two

Like many her age, the young nun Satou had an irrepressible curiosity: the less she knew about a thing, the more she wanted to try it. Thus she had elected to use multithreading to improve performance in her log processing utility, despite master Banzen’s cautions.

Banzen reviewed her code, then invited the nun to discuss his findings during the morning tea break.

When Satou had seated herself in the master’s tea room, Banzen took a ladle of boiling-hot water from the iron pot and poured it directly onto Satou’s tatami mat. Satou yelped in surprise, leaping from the floor to avoid being scalded. The master calmly beat the spreading puddle with his whisk as he set an empty bowl in its center. Finally he spooned powdered green tea into the dry bowl.

“Now,” said Banzen. “Let us discuss race conditions.”

Hey Joe! is there any chance that I could get your email, or some other method of communication? I am looking to build some sql based database stuff, and I was hoping that you may have either some insight into it, or possibly a better solution than what I am thinking of currently.

Can't you just walk over to Hoboken and find him in person? I mean Joe has given some clues. Look for apartment complexes that are right in front of train tracks, then ask management if the amount of hot was usage has gone up drastically.

Was the common fashion in The Netherlands in the 1920s really the same as that of southern New Jersey in the US?

Or is this just another one of those things that's going to make me ask myself "Why are the Dutch so fascinated with this one specific aspect of American culture?"

Good job. You've given me a third thing about the Netherlands that irritated me today.

There are style guides on the internet about how to dress for an era. The hardest part is keeping your lapels, collars, brims, ties, etc. the right width. In other words, it doesn't matter as long as you're wearing "classic" clothing styles that were not too trendy.

And a pocket square.

And slicked down hair with a well-defined part.

You can also opt for a hat other than a fedora.

I fancy a homburg:

God, my stomach has become so pussified. I had two cups of coffee earlier and my stomach is hurting so bad. I guess after drinking so little caffeine over the past few years, drinking a few cups of coffee maybe once a month is too much of a shock to my system. At least it got my bowels moving like a freight train.

So, it obviously goes without saying that the first is the Dutch tulip bubble of 1637, but I kinda feel like I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't ask what the second thing was.

I have a friend who owns a vintage clothing store in Somerville NJ called Incogneeto. She's super cool, and a walking encyclopedia of vintage fashion. She'd likely rent you the appropriate duds. PM me of you want my name to drop and her contact info. I'm sure it could be shipped there fairly quickly.

Stop sipping the haterade. The party's in the uk and my cousin's wife is actually American. Thus the theme.
