I'd be happy to donate my skills to any number of topics :)

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work in flame wars (On the rare occasions I respond I tend to feed trolls/fan flames)

When I woke up this morning I briefly thought about how nice it would be if I could just spend the morning in bed. However I didn't want it to be a hospital bed.

Over the weekend I accidentally broke a glass desktop on the desk in my home office, which is in the basement. After cleaning up the small pieces of glass I set aside the larger pieces so that I could safely break them down later.
I didn't want any children getting near them if I set them outside.

This morning I was checking messages and briefly touching base with dothebart and the_mgt on IRC while having my morning coffee. I got up from the desk and ... tripped over the pile of broken glass in my bare feet.

While I showered I noticed the stream of blood going down the drain was getting bigger. The cut was worsening the more I moved around. I wasn't going to be able to keep this one closed on my own, so I threw on some clothes and had my wife drive me to the hospital. Six stitches later I'm back at work and limping around the office.

I blame Mark Zuckerburg for all of this. I just haven't figured out why yet.

Ack. Sorry to hear that!

Glass furniture has always freaked me out. Thanks for strengthening my paranoia, and for giving me an anecdote to reference (though I'll probably
refer to you as an amputee if I ever re-tell it).

Got wood?

Actually it is a wooden desk, inherited from my great aunt when we cleaned out her house. The glass was one of those glass tops that go *over* the wood.
Nowadays they make those out of plexi but this one was probably 50 years old.

Whoa, evil! All my glass furniture is marked with the label "security glass", but I never put it to the test. And I hope I will never need to.

Anyway, hope your foot gets better soon.

Ouch, IG, heal up.  And stop auditioning as a glass-walking miracle man.  Don't you know those are all aliens?

IG: I hope your foot gets better quickly. That really sucks.

interrupt: I was an Amigaphile as well, although I have long since moved on. Still, it might be interesting to examine.. maybe it's a good OS for specialized needs, which my company has. Hm....

all that is, is an old version of linux mint with a theme. nothing to get excited over. and it is certainly NOT a commodore OS.

It is the mindset the RDF he radiates that calls for transparent personal appliances
which is responsible.

Get well soon.

so meanwhile the best part of this news message is, that the hotel guy claims about half of the whater was shaken out of the pool.

After that kind of storm, if there's any water left in the pool, it's so disgustingly dirty that it needs to be changed out anyway. That happens to my sister every time there's a hurricane/flood in Florida. If she's lucky she gets some free 'gators as pets, but in any case the pool water is replaced by very muddy water.

Maybe it is your sister... I have not heard that, she needs to plant some grass in her yard.
