    Tis for the good. I’m just surprised how that article slipped under your radar :-/

    When was that article even written? It was linked-to only like a few days ago on slashdot. It couldn’t be that old that it was common knowledge and I just wasn’t aware.

    It’s probably for the good, but it means a reset on my few-week wait period. Plus now I have nothing in common with that one hot woman I’ve always wanted to talk to in the coffee shop.

    So I can mourn.
