Some really good points listed therein.

I dream about the days when our code all runs happily on Solaris, is packaged up in SRV4 streams, and I can open "add DTrace providers to stuff" tickets...

What a stupid, stupid day. I don't even want to get into it.

Let's just say: I could have used some beer when I got home at midnight.

But there was no beer to be had.

Damn you, roommate guy. Damn you to heck. Crying anime emoticon face here.
