The GPF site will be undergoing maintenance this weekend (most likely Sunday, April 2nd) that may render some parts of the site inaccessible. Individual pages may "break", fail to render properly, or generate errors as we perform a series of upgrades.

Transcription

[[Tim and Sharon are coming back from getting coffee.]]
Tim: So you actually CHEW some coffee beans first, THEN wash them down with the brew?
Sharon: [smiling] It's an acquired taste.

Tim: [thinking] I guess she passes the caffeine test...
Sharon: While I've got a strong man with me, why don't you help me move some hardware upstairs?

Tim: [lifting a server] Some of this equipment looks pretty old.
Sharon: We keep some of these old machines around for clients with small requirements. Not everyone needs top-of-the-line hardware.

Tim: [smirking] Betcha can't make a ten teraflop supercomputer out of this pile of junk...
Sharon: [raising an eyebrow] The woman in me wonders why you'd make that challenge, but the geek in me says you're on.
