    It's not that geeky if you start counting at 1.
    Real jedi masters start at 0.
    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.

    Feh, that's not geeky.

    I'm going to start creating a work log and release notes during the pregnancy of my first kid. That way, I can show it to him when he/she's older.

    Oh. How exciting. The first of the possible days for babylude have come ... 2.94% of voters are relying on this day ... I just want to say I enjoyed the run up to this moment and I hope we have a nice clean game here. There's no reason to get physical!

    (Any news on the mod for a day present for the winner?)

    And the Winner Is...

    Prelude's daughter "was born on Christmas eve at 9:27pm after what I'm told was a textbook birth. [...] Oh, and for the guessing game, 8lbs 8oz, 20.25"."

    And all is going well as I understand it.

    Congratulations, Prelude and Family!

    That's a big girl - and so's her daughter.

    Congratulations, indeed.

    Congratulations :-)
