Would I imply that a system that simply performs well and reliably might be superior to one with all the bells and whistels? Me?

Rapaire, even folks at Microsoft know that some things don't improve with change, even though they foist change upon everyone else. Do you think that could be it? Last thing I heard, their Beta version of Office won't speak to documents and files from earlier versions. . . typical, eh?

From the bulk of the message it appears that they want someone to test their automation system on Microsoft Server 2007. A Systems Librarian's job is different from what Amos assumes, too. I know, I was one before I threw in my lot with Lord Moldyfart and moved to The Dark Side. What I find interesting is that Microsoft's corporate library is still using the "obsolete" text-based system we migrated away from three years ago. Then again....

All those Microsoft jobs start out that way, and they list a lot with temps companies also. I looked at those at one time.

Taught the sprout how to make guacamole tonight, and we made a nice big batch (about 4 pounds of it). We had plans to freeze it in ice cube trays so when it comes to snack time he can just thaw two or three cubes and get out some chips. But - gasp! - we were out of chips!!! so we could hardly adequately taste this food of the gods, so I ran to the store. When I got back I found that he'd been so efficient in fitting all of the batch into the ice cube trays that he had to rebuke his sister for swiping guac off of the top of the trays in the freezer to give it a taste. We liberated some of the fresh stuff before it froze and everyone got a taste. Good thing Gluon wasn't around for this--with the garlic and onion in that stuff, its like the perfect critical mass of flavor. We might have had a nuclear reaction if that duck-dog had been in the house!

So Microsoft wants a Software Librarian. Tricky work, ya know, not just like dealing with books and periodicals. ALl kinds of version tracking for complex program builds and different sub-combinations of files in those builds and individual file changes and managing simultaneous updates from multiple sources. No piece o'cake.

Tweed or BWL will experience a melding of flavors in the smilax (greenbriar) I send because it will be commingled with other backyard vines, mostly Lonicera (honeysuckle) and to add a zing that keeps going and going and going, there will be a little Toxicodendron (poison ivy) mixed in. That's one way to tickle your tastebuds! (I found a web site that makes great claims to speed up healing after exposure. I'll bite. I'm not likely to be able to avoid that weedy vine the rest of my life.)

Tweed is noticing strange cravings. Ergo, Tweed in pregnant.

Why not ship all of the smilax you you can spare to Tweed? Not only will it help him with his strange cravings, but it will also ease the pain when he gives birth! Yes! Medical researchers have found that smilax, when eaten in enormous quantities every day, will make a primigravidus give birth at least as easily as if an sharp ax or knife were placed beneath the bed! And if you have recordings of such groups as "The Back Street Boys" or "'N Synch" around send them too!

The tender young shoots of some varieties of smilax are quite good. The type that grows where the Florida Folk Festival is held tastes great. A friend who lives just ten miles or so from my place says his daughter browses their smilax regularly. Unfortunately, what grows on my property tastes like turpentine, and not very good turpentine at that.

BWL, I haven't experimented brewing with my smilax, but tell you what: that's your research project and in the spirit of science I'll be shipping all of mine to you. Just untangle it from the baby opossums and squirrels (no baby dillies around here, yet).

Meanwhile, I have some sea urchin fossils out back that I'll ship directly to MMario. I think he might want to simmer them for a while and come up with a nice sauce for the glyptodon.

Meanwhile back at the ranch.....
The Corn-Porn Queen put aside her cobs to gaze at the large ship, entering sky left, that strangly resembled a Mammadillo. The ship made a sound that was something like rubbing your hand on a piece of viraoglaxamine in the pocket of a pair of tweed pants.
It sounded like... BuWahahahah..kaff kaff......ack phhttt! BuWahahahah..kaff kaff......ack phhttt! BuWahahahah..kaff kaff......ack phhttt!
Slowly hoovering above the Corn-Porn Queen, the hatch of the ship opened and from it fell 3355 jars of caviar and one beluga.
The Corn-Porn Queen ran to her pantry quickly, not to hide or take cover, but to grab a jar of chokecherry wine and crackers.

Baby armadillos seem to be attracted by the sound of scratching in the dirt. We've had them come check us out while working in garden beds with hand cultivators. Little critters are about 90% blind and can't tell that a human is about fifty times bigger than Mammadillo. All they seem to notice is that something's making armadillo noises.

And the world can walk right through you

Tweed's Log: MOABDATE13518

Solar flareups have caused some personality aberrations in the crew of late.

The usually agreeable Amos snaps at the slightest provocation. He's noticeably edgy and has shaved off his eyebrows for reasons known only to him. He refuses to give any explanation.   

Rapaire has transmogridated into a smarmy, yet oddly polite republican! and insists on having four forks of various sizes at mess.

Chief Engineer Bee Dubya, neglects his beloved accordion studies, preferring to conduct impromptu spelling bees instead. He has taken up hamster breeding and keeps two or three hidden in his beard, which only serve to unnerve the contestants, as they sometimes crawl up to the exercise wheel that their master has fashioned into a sort of headgear. It is especially hard on Rapaire during meals and the poor fellow can be heard all over the main deck. "TAKE IT OFF!! FOR CHRIST'S SAKES, WE'RE EATING DINNER HERE!!" and Beezer calmly sups his soup with hamsters spinning merrily away, completely oblivious to the forks. squeek...squeeeek......squeeeeeeek....

And this battered vessel called MOAB ambles onward into the great unknown, leaving only the scent of Tang, Ho-Ho's and a hint of mildew in her wake. The GreatBlack Hole, hitherto uncharted and known only as X-14K looms like a mountain range in the distance.

What new adventures await the crew of the Ark? Gold and riches beyond their wildest dreams....Or something a little more sinister?

BuWahahahah..kaff kaff......ack phhttt!

I understand that your beady little mind cannot comprehend when someone is following the dictates of Miss Manners and attempting to make life pleasant for others. Perhaps that's just a result of living too long in Southern California amidst Those Kind Of People.

Oh, and Amos, if you want to feel better go do a good deed. I did one of those today also. I was pushing a cart with three small things in it in the grocery store and came across an elderly man with a hand basket putting a flat of 30 eggs in it, and they were rolling out because it would only go in on an angle. I stopped to help rescue his eggs and suggested we trade. I left with the hand basket and he rolled off with the cart, eggs flat and all intact.

"How much will that cost?"

"It's free. You bought it from us so we fix and balance it free."

Sometimes all it takes is one little thing to make your day. :) They put the spare back up under the back and put everything away. How nice!
