Garçon Stupide said...

Aw thanks Mike!! Apart from my beloved Cogent, it seems like no one is commenting these days :(

I do have a real job, from which I'm on extended assault leave at this time.

In any case, I decided to try and spread The Week According To... throughout the week for a while, as an experiment.
