Bits and pieces
1) Has everyone else lost the ?nc=xxx flag from the comments links in their friends page? I'm wondering whether it's universal or style-based. (The ?nc=xxx is still there in user pages for me).

2) My office has moved from N42 to E17, in case anyone was thinking of visiting. I've yoinked the Super Big Printer of Doom, and will have to see where it can fit in my little cubicle. The view is better, the commute is better, but I'll miss Tosci's and the Rolly Place.

3) Last weekend was my Painting the Porches project. Due to communication problems, we trapped tirinian outside at 3 in the morning, which was a little embarrassing. And wow, are my legs sore (too many hours of crouching). But they're all shiny and red now (the porches, not my legs). :)

I lost the nc=xxx parameter. I'm somewhat annoyed by that.

What's it good for?

Many people use it to tell when there are new comments because the link changes color from visited to unvisited (because the link has changed URL). I also use a public greasemonkey script that separates out the number of unseen comments (so instead of "5 comments" it says "5 comments (2 unseen)") and a second script I wrote that adds a clicky link at the top to open all the comment pages at once that have unseen comments.

I don't know what a ?nc is, but dcltdw was complaining about something changing colors.

We should do lunch. :)

Is the Rolly place gone? It doesn't seem like you're moving that far from it, from this 3000-mile perspective.

It's not actually that far, Mike and I will just end up going less often, due to psych lims about efficiency. :)

Clearly it's your psych lim and not Mike's, given that bldg 54 is most of the way to E17 from the Rolly place.

No, no, if it was my psych lim it would be "laziness". That it's mostly his means it's "efficiency", because he clearly isn't too lazy to walk to the rolly place from 54, but thinks it's silly to do so when neither of us works nearby.

Yeah, when our offices are on opposite ends of the campus, one of us has to walk across the whole thing, so it may as well be me. When our offices are practically next to each other, both of us walking all the way over to the Rolly place is a harder sell.

Ah, I see. So the walk from 54 to N42 was "sunk cost."

Also, given your recent feats of artifice, I would have a hard time describing you as "lazy."

I like the Clover truck, and would be happy to join you there at lunch time sometimes.
