Good music, priced right: CD Baby, baby.

I like to have a martini, two at the very most. After three I'm under the table, after four I'm under my host.

Top article. XKCD has long since been a favourite of mine too. I bet that was a brilliant trip.

A mere sign isn't going to keep those clever ass-raptors out though. I hope you were armed with sufficient quantities of grapejuice.

I had plenty of fermented grape juice; does that count?

Bastard typos. I went through it I-don't-know-how-many times.

Well, thanks for spotting it; it's now fixed.

re-read it... I think my favorite part is "A quick sketch of a cat's face had the caption, "I can has chalk!"" Immediately some LOLcats came to mind and I ... LOL'd.

definitely fun times. wouldn't be surprised to see a bunch of plskthx scrawled after bad leet speak requests or spots from the ascii war flash vid.

Indeed. I've written to the editor asking for it to be corrected, but they've probably already gone to press. Ah well. I can live without one extra vertical stroke.
