Lost, Lost, all is Lost

... well, not on the ITR project. The workshop went swimmingly (all hail to Charlie and Kader, and thanks to Andrew for a nice little demo). Nothing dispels the Demo Demon like a little Emeril design philosophy.1


I hate this show!
I LOVE THIS SHOW!!

Exploding Arzt: Ew.
Homeric survival of the heroes: Fortes fortuna ContractShieldedTM.
Walt, Michael, Jin, Sawyer: Noooooo, *sits back and lets him do the screaming*, go Jin go, and you know he'll be back...
Stupid $)(#&*&!(#&%(* leading to... sdfhskgshglhsa CLIFFHANGER. J. J. Abrams has denied that it's all a dream and they're all dead and that the shaft is a tunnel to hell, but after the Black PearlRock? Who the trask knows? Craphole Island has Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan, for criminy's sake. Throw in Jimmy Hoffa and Surak and you've got yourself an episode of Trek!


1 The "cooking show" approach to software demos, adopted and refined by yours truly since 1996, is to favor live demos over screenshots whenever possible, but to have "fall back" measures in case of network outages, OS glitches, etc. Recordings (such as our BNJ animation), pre-loaded applets, and other preparations are key. Always have something to show, picking up from the next stage, in case you have a problem or (in rare cases) a crash. I've used the cooking show method before and though I have never had a major show-stopper crash in a software demo, I have had minor environment errors that I was able to get through because I prepared 2-5 "copies" of every "dish", the way Emeril Lagasse does.

Do not adjust your computer screen.
This is Banazir's M.O. He will backdate posts to the date that they would have been written had he not been sidetracked by other stuff.

My advice: get used to it. The creepy feeling will go away with time. Eventually. I think. If it doesn't, see a dermatologist.

My "M.O."! You make me sound like one of those creepy killers on Profiler that Samantha (Ally Walker) hunted every week!

Mmm. Ally Walker.

LOL!

One post per day
Yep, as sui_degeneris wrote, this is an idiosyncrasy of mine. I don't back date this far often, though.
