    Something better to show off? Okay, we're waiting....
    I should think a 640 x 480 image size would be satisfactory. Oh, and I'm sure I speak for others when I say an action shot - say, bouncing on a trampoline - would be helpful in illustrating your point. Please proceed with posting at your soonest convenience.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Boy, nothing reveals what someone's function is quite like an illness. It's easy to tell who does what by what doesn't get done around the place when that person is sick.

    Good luck, indeed! You'll kill it, bro!
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    He won't be able to keep me away during off work hours but I will miss the fun and energy of the work day postings.

    bosshat is my affectionate name for him. Oooh, I forgot about my smartphone. Won't be quite as easy on my blackberry but worth a shot!

    It is true! Not being able to get on very often during normal office hours really puts a damper on your Cyburbianisms. I have to keep my time in check at the new job. I too have a blackberry (but only for another month!)

    What if we were to have a thread called "The 5:01 Lounge" intended for folks who can't typically post during the normal 8-5 world (where the large majority of activity occurs on Cyburbia), that still want to post about their daily comings and goings, but don't want their posts to be buried beneath two pages of randoms? Might be a good place for the RJ's and dandys of the world to conveniently keep in touch....

    just a thought.

    I'm not convinced it's either warranted or if it would even 'work'. Just wanted to float the idea first.
