Oh my giddy aunt, Eric in a shirt & tie and a suit, AND minus beard!! Definitely one for the archives. Oh, and BTW, one does not wear a belt with suit trousers. They should be self supporting if the waist measurement is correct, and they have a crepe anti slip band on the inside.

Mind you if you go to Saville Row, they will cut your suit assuming you will be wearing gents braces, as that is the only way a quality suit will ever hang properly.

These forums are for the active community. Thus the need for active credit (as in RAC). We've been telling the developers for years about how the text is wrong. It's not a certain amount of credits you require, but you need to be active to post here. And else, you can still post in the Help Desk (Q&A) forums.

That may be true, but one doesn't get the same quality of banter in the Q&A section that one can partake of here.



Let us hope that Eric does manage to find the time to support Angela's RAC, and that soon she will be able to support herself in the manner to which we have all become accustomed (not to mention enjoy).

Such banter as in the regular forums is frowned upon.

I must say...

If it comes down a choice for Eric between fixing Angela's computer or driving to the lab and kicking the scheduler, I'm afraid I have to vote for the scheduler.

Sorry, Ang. Your RAC may have to wait even longer for its new support.

No matter what support Eric gives to Angela, it won't help her RAC until the scheduler is fixed...

Well it looks ass if the scheduler has had its tyres kicked, so now its the turn of Angela's computer.
Best of luck with that, I suspect it will be harder to find the right place to apply the kick of life to a small PC compared to a big rack of servers....

I didn't get around to fixing Angela's computer this weekend. But it's her fault.

I transfered 10 of my RAC to her account so she can post and hooked her account up to one of my computers at work. Maybe she'll let me fix her computer this weekend.

Actually, it IS my fault he didn't fix my computer. I made him go to a family party with my relatives. It pretty much killed the day.

Thank you dear... for everything.



(I thought about making Eric give me 100 RAC points, but then realized that would only give him free license to put off fixing my computer for a long, long, long time. It seemed best to simply ask for 10 right now. I didn't realize he had set me up with another computer!!!)

Nice to see you have a supportive husband. We were all getting very worried about loosing our Raccoon Lady and her RAC, but she's back :-)

I think Angela's RAC and Eric's support of it is going to be a cross-topic point of humor for a loooong time to come.

Watch him catch the limit and you have to clean and cook. Well, really fresh fish is good so it would be a win win.

Remember that picture of Eric wearing a suit that I posted here? Eric was on his way to a NASA site review for a satellite project he is a part of. (Not a seti thing... sorry friends.) Anyway, it got funded. Yay!!!
