What's this new style of posting you guys do? Donald Knuth all
over? (Not that I know/saw it, just heard it. There was a long
discussion recently, don't look that up, embarrassing, heh :))

But I don't mind, on the contrary as they say in the sweet
science, "styles make fights" ... there is a guy in
gmane.emacs.erc.general who also does it! He is ... either
almost scary or very impressive ...

Here is also a workshop BTW, inspired by Emacs. Or did I came
to Emacs because of "the workshop" inside me, embryotic at
that time? Because you can take the tiger out of the jungle
but etc ...

I've been telling the folks there it doesn't matter what
_order_ you do good things. They are idempotent! No ... that's
when nothing happens the second time you do it ... they are
a transaction? related but not it. they are/can be done in
parallel? but they can't, sometimes they require the same
tools and we have a finite number of those as you see -
especially in the machine shop ... but these things tend to
multiply when you get it organized and in one place (but teen
girls can't have the same effect with a box with
chronologically sorted LOVE LETTERS <3 )... anyway, just do it
if it makes sense, and don't worry about the order!
BUT DESPITE telling this my most important message to the
masses over and over - yes, I did take those photos AFTER
I cleaned and organized it :D
