    I bet it's you. Only because you suggested making a betting pool on it.

    It's gonna be John Elway...

    Or better yet, she'll probably wait until April to tell us and then just fool us with a stupid Terrance and Phillip episode, then we'll have to complain to the network to get a real answer.

    There is no father, she's actually programming the child.

    If she was programming it, it wouldn't take her a whole other month.

    It was none of our business. Well... at least I know for a fact it wasn't my business. Besides, let's face it. If we don't know about it, we don't take extra care. Which only means Prelude can keep being her usual self.

    Actually... I bet when all this will be over, she'll post a thank-you note for having had the place and all the opportunity to relieve the stress. Her, and her workmates and her husband.

    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Well I wasn't trying to be rude. I underestimated how long people have known each other on this board though. I'm no good with these things so I won't be participating. :P But it is wonderful news nonetheless. Congratulations again!

    It never crossed my mind you were being rude, mate.

    Why do BS, McIlroy and K&R all look, well, strange. They just do, lets face it.
    You could use McIlroy's nose as a cot for newborns (a poor attempt at not totally de-railing the thread).
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.
