    Prelude's Baby Betting Pool

    The time is drawing near, so let's have a little game of it. This is about all we have to go on:
    "The rough estimate is January 5th."
    The ground rules:
    1. Guess what day the baby will be born (the poll had a maximum of 15 options).
    2. What time of day it will be born [edit](local time)[/edit].
    3. And the weight and length (I'd prefer pounds & ounces and inches).
    4. Whether it’s a boy or a girl.

    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    I didn't even know Prelude was pregnant.

    So I'll bet instead (no offense meant).

    - January, 2
    - 16:50
    - 7.5 lbs
    - 19.5 inches
    - A baby girl! What else? I bet Prelude's X chromosome planted a warning sign outside against any intruders.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    There is a difference between tedious and difficult.
