PeterJF: SJ: i'm watching you right now. I have a computer with DSL in a nearby building
SeriousJ: dsl?
PeterJF: it's like lsd, but more addictive

Alden: I so want Star Trek, where you program a computer by saying "I want you to do this and this and this"
Alden: Then I will retire to a small padded cell somewhere
SeriousJ: "Working. Insufficent technology."
Oh_sod_it: ..and it can tell you 're talking to it cos you say 'computer', yet ignores you if you just use the word 'computer' in a sentence
SeriousJ: OSI- Like how the control panel ignores Riker's butt?
PeterJF: riker sits on the control panel?
Alden: Now that's error anticipation.
PeterJF: spoken like a dev
Alden: "What if someone sits on the control panel?" "Who would be *that* stupid??"
Oh_sod_it: and doors know when you want to go through them and not just walk past, and open conveniently when you finish a conversation
PeterJF: okay, if the heat signature is butt-like, ignore it
PeterJF: oh wait- we need to write a routing to distinguish between finger presses and the noses of exhausted users
Oh_sod_it: supposing he's tied up, and has to use his arse to send a distress signal?

DoctorWho: And while I'm at it, I'm anxiously waiting for everything to go wireless too :P

Greebo_T_Cat: my dad said he was making 'breakfast sandwiches' and asked me if i'd like one... i said yes.
Greebo_T_Cat: i've just recieved 3 pieces of bread, between which there is: Bacon, sasauges, fried egg, more bacon, sasauges, cheese and fried onions.
Greebo_T_Cat: *blinks*
Greebo_T_Cat: this may or may not kill me
Alden: crikey
Alden: Your dad's not Dave Lister, by any chance?
DoctorWho: LOL
Greebo_T_Cat: Gods no.
Greebo_T_Cat: no chilli sauce, no chutney
DoctorWho: hm... bread, meat, cheese, onions... technically I think that covers all 4 food groups...
DoctorWho: At the same time, I can't bring myself to believe that such a dish is actually good for you.
Greebo_T_Cat: nate: i never said it was
DoctorWho: a) I was being sarcastic, b) That's the point
Greebo_T_Cat: c) *munch*
Alden: lol
DoctorWho: As Thete said at approximately this juncture while trying vegemite on toast, "Hm. I'm not dead."
DoctorWho: Though, that sandwich sounds like something I would make
DoctorWho: Double-decker... might even be big enough portions for me to consider it a 'meal'
Greebo_T_Cat: Nathan 'Steak? STEAK? Just gimme the whole damned cow and some napalm' Roberts

DoctorWho finishes debugging the toilet
DoctorWho: (we hope)
PeterJF: oh lordy. programmers fixing toilets?
RedQueen: Thete: it's a rough job market out there
DoctorWho: Thete: Yup.
DoctorWho: Fixing it from a programmer's perspective too

Greebo_T_Cat: sorry, just trying to flush it out of my cistern
DoctorWho: *fwap*
