Good news all Froods!
Pliny is back alive!

Brian applied his best sorcery, sent a link to the core team, who replied "IT WORKS", and then Brian said

"Well, that's rather annoying, as it should not have worked. I mean, it's nice that it does, but annoying that THAT made it work, as that makes no sense"

Well, such is life back stage at h2g2.com, deep in the basement behind the sign for "Beware of the Leopard".

We can't explain it. But it works. So Share and Enjoy! smiley - bubbly

For the Core Team
Milla smiley - cogs

I am so proud of the team.

You don't get the big bucks, but you deserve to. smiley - smiley

The thing is, it's always a work in progress. Things will have their snags, but they'll get ironed out. (Hope I haven't jinxed anything by saying this smiley - blush).

The Left Reverend Doktor Baron Grim

I fondly remember seeing the following error message on a Sun Sparq Station 20 (really expensive and powerful desktop workstation from the last century running a proprietary Unix based OS) running a film scanning system from Kodak.


"ERROR: This should never happen."

Dmitri's video about T.J. made me think about an old song called "Kitten on the keys"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TBxRRUj1bcA

(Keys used to be something that you use for opening locks. Then they became things on pianos. Pianos have been losing their luster as computers have been gaining, but both have "keys.")

Anyway, if T.J. did play a role in bringing Pliny back, I for one would be willing to contribute to a catnip fund.

Did you say salmon? smiley - bigeyes

This brings back memories. My family used to celebrate Memorial Day with salmon and new fresh peas. smiley - drool

My grandmother was such a superb cook that she worked for a specialty caterer, and then was hired to cook for her landlord (incidentally, at one point he became interested in marrying her). Her salmon salad was exquisite, as was anything else she cooked.

Ah, yes, cats also like salmon. As well they might. smiley - smiley
