    Question No new years thread

    Most boards get a "Happy New Year" thread by now. Is it taboo or something to do so on this one?

    Yeah, it's all hexadecimal here, with 0x100 days per year
    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 personally cannot tell the difference between -40 degrees Celsius and -40 degrees Fahrenheit.

    This is the only board that I visit that didn't have one. Not surprised though, this isn't
    your typical, warm-fuzzy board.

    Hey hey hey now! We are very warm and fuzzy here! We just like to save the warm-fuzziness for the elite nobility. Peasant users don't receive of it.

    It'll always be them and us; Rich vs. Poor, Smart vs. Dumb, Expert vs. Novice. It's a good thing that death is the great equalizer, else I doubt Heaven n' Hell could accommodate so many swelled heads.

    In my opinion we were all too busy celebrating to worry about what was on the board or not.

    I personally was drinking at 9PM and drunk by 2AM... I woke up around noon on the 1st, took a train home, got there around 2:30PM and by that point I felt it was a bit too late.

    I had a wild night too, Sly.
    Was at a friend's watching a movie. Heard fireworks and gathered I'd missed the countdown. Ah well.
