DJ Tween: Shows here I sent you a message, E
Dexter Fong: I guess that constitutes a msge
||||||||| Gusts of wind blow in from outside and the thumpa-thumpa-thumpa of helicopter blades is heard as Happy Panditt's chopper lands on the lawn and Elayne falls out at 9:36 PM.

doctecazoid: the massage is the medium
Principalpoop: update your browser/
Elayne: Tween, I didn't see your msg. Regardless, I can't respond except to "Send to all."

Dexter Fong: Who did you want to msge elayne, tell us and we'll all close our eyes

doctecazoid: like firesign, he was remarkably prescient
Principalpoop: i have no idea then...
DJ Tween: Can you try a different browser?

cs: i may visit dex and el and doc again, if i am lucky
DJ Tween: Won't run on my old Macs, but I use it for social networking stuff in Linux
DJ Tween: Yeah, Firefox in Linux won't work with Facebook. Chrome does
drummerguy1956: Touch Grid, Mac - that's who I am.
Elayne: That would be lovely, Cat. We only have Amy now, no more Datsa. So the place is a bit more manageable with the one cat.
cs: i would not bet on it
DJ Tween: Touch Grid?
doctecazoid: tough, methinks
DJ Tween: Don't you get a shock from The Electrician?
cs: today is my first not taking drugs for leg, which means i can drink as usual

cs: happy i can drink. you can't imagine
DJ Tween: The sangria missed you
Elayne: Tweeny, thanks for playing so much Bergman tonight. Great way to remember him.
Elayne: I'm hitting the double-nickels this Sunday. Beats the alternative, I suppose.

DJ Tween: Glad to do it :)
doctecazoid: for the past year and 9 months i have been dealing with a co-worker who made my life and job miserable
Principalpoop: ahh 55 is pretty much like 54, not a big deal hehe
DJ Tween: sux, Doc

Elayne: Sorry to hear that, Doc. Is that situation over now?
doctecazoid: thankfully, mgmt finally realized he was never going to overcome his incompetence and sacked him
