[how about no.] 9 Lesser-Known IPAs You Should Be Drinking
I like most beer, but IPA's have to be at the bottom of the list of stuff I would order... unless it is the hottest day of the year, and then they somehow taste awesome to me. So, I have maybe one or two in a year. - Jennifer Dittrich
God I love a good IPA. IPA all day. - Eric
I've had the Great Divide Lasso IPA, great, and a couple weeks ago picked up a 12 pack of the Hop Nosh, pretty good, different. - Eric
They are THE WORST. :P - holly #ravingfangirl from iPhone

I've missed quite a few of his zingers, but I think I'm caught up now, so I'd like to send Steve to his corner until further notice. He has repeatedly violated our before 10pm rule.
You need to cut him a little break; new baby means he's sleep-deprived and not really responsible for his posts. ;-) - Anne Bouey
OK Anne. Just for you. <3 - Monique Judge

Sleep is unproductive and a waste of time. - Louis Gray
Hahaha that's awesome Monique. After consulting with my lawyer Anne I must humbly plead guilty to all charges and throw myself at the mercy of the court. I am hoping the court is lined with mattresses so I can get some unproductive waste of time in. You are cordially given two free passes to break our 10pm adult entertainment rule as reparation. - Steve C

You'd think that someone who could handle 120 proof vodka wouldn't get laid out by a pair of gin & tonics. My head says otherwise.

Tupac used to live in my neighborhood. #SaturdayFF
Just northwest of Lake Merritt, I lived on Harrison & he had an apartment up the hill & around the corner. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
A friend from high school lived in the same building as him. He was super cool to her kids, they loved him. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
But when I met him, before many people knew who he was, he'd only done music with Digital Underground. When I met him, he was a supreme asshole. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Me & my neighbor/homie Lori were coming back from a weed mission, on foot, late one weeknight. We passed JJ's diner, nee Biff's, a guy Lori knew was in front and they were happy to see each other. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
He invited us inside to eat with him & his friends so of course we said yeah. He was a music producer, or promoter, or something. We walked to their table & before he started the introductions, I saw Money B and Tupac and some other guy sitting there. I was like whoa, rap stars, but Lori had no clue who they were. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
So, we're talking, chopping it up, Lori says we were coming from getting weed, Tupac said "oh y'all smoke? Your weed ain't shit, we got the best weed." Me & Lori looked at each other like, O Kay. She was already tripping off how he was wearing four giant chains with giant diamond pieces on them. She wasn't from Oakland. She'd barely seen anyone wearing just one of them chains. lol - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
So we order, me & Lori get milkshakes, the guys order food...Tupac ordered like, 6 entrees, asking for special shit, was talking down to the poor waitress. Like he'd never sat down in a restaurant before. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Money B was very nice. He must've been used to his homie acting like that, because he for the most part was doing a great job of steering the conversation in a better direction. But damn. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I don't even remember all the things he was talking about, but it was about him, & how he was bigger & better at everything than everybody. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
He took a bite or two of the stuff he'd ordered and was rudely telling the waitress to wrap it up to go. Me & Lori got up to leave & her friend walked us to the door, apologizing for Tupac. "he's young and hype". - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Whatever. We were shocked by his behavior & talked shit about him for hella long. It was a trip when he went solo & blew up. I kept seeing that rude 20 year old douchebag from 1990. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
When All Eyez On Me came out, I thought there'd never been a more apropos song title :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Ha! Good story. I always saw two sides of PAC in interviews. The cocky dude and the other one who was calm and introspective. Guess he was on his ego trip that night. - Eric from iPhone
IT service build is not a factory | The IT Skeptic -
IT service build is not a factory | The IT Skeptic
"There is a widespread idea in IT that IT is a factory, repeatably turning out code which can be treated as identical products on some kind of optimisable production line. This is only true for parts of our IT world: it's usually not true of building services. What do we mean by factory in this context? We mean that building software can be treated like a production line cranking out standardised components, where we manage work-in-progress (WIP), and we optimise repeated tasks. IT is not really a factory. I wrote last year about the applicability of factory-floor techniques to IT in general. I want to focus today on service Build in particular. You can't generally treat Build as a factory. Only a sector of the build-centric community think so. The people who run the shop know better; ITSM knows better. IT is more often a bespoke engineering shop, building one-off make-to-order systems, not make-to-stock components as if we were churning out flat-pack bookshelves." - Me from Bookmarklet

My kids rarely wake before 7am, but I'm a 2am - 10am sleeper, so that's still early for me ;) - Melly
Yeah. For us, we had to wake up early on school days in order to get the kids up & moving (which was a nigh impossible task with Thing 2, who needed to be awakened at least 6 times before he'd actually get out of bed on a school morning). Then, on weekends, Thing 2 would be up around 5 a.m., bouncing off the walls, every freakin' time. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

Busy NYC Restaurant Solves Major Mystery by Reviewing Old Surveillance -
"We are a popular restaurant for both locals and tourists alike. Having been in business for many years we noticed that although the number of customer's we serve on a daily basis is almost the same today as it was 10 years ago, the service just seems super slow even thou we added lot's more staff and cut back on the menu items. One of the most common complaints on review sites against us and many restaurants in the area is that the service was slow and or they needed to wait a bit long for a table. We decided to hire a firm to help us solve this mystery, and naturally the first thing they blamed it on was that the employees need more training and that maybe the kitchen staff is just not up to the task of serving that many customers." - Elena from Bookmarklet
2004: Customers walk in. They gets seated and are given menus, out of 45 customers 3 request to be seated elsewhere. Customers on average spend 8 minutes before closing the menu to show they are ready to order. Waiters shows up almost instantly takes the order. Food starts getting delivered within 6 minutes, obviously the more complex items take way longer. Out of 45 customers 2 sent... more... - Elena
2014: Customers walk in. Customers get seated and is given menus, out of 45 customers 18 requested to be seated elsewhere. Before even opening the menu they take their phones out, some are taking photos while others are simply doing something else on their phone (sorry we have no clue what they are doing and do not monitor customer WIFI activity). 7 out of the 45 customers had waiters... more... - Elena
26 out of 45 customers spend an average of 3 minutes taking photos of the food. 14 out of 45 customers take pictures of each other with the food in front of them or as they are eating the food. This takes on average another 4 minutes as they must review and sometimes retake the photo. 9 out of 45 customers sent their food back to reheat. Obviously if they didn't pause to do whatever on... more... - Elena

Two new-to-me works of art I came across in the books of the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center Library, given to Colorado College. That's the Devil's Bible and Fragmentary Head of a Queen.
Fine Arts Center has a library? - Eric from iPhone
They did, but when they renovated in 2007 or so they eliminated the space for the library, dismissed the librarian, and boxed up the collection. This summer, they gave the collection to Colorado College, where I'm a librarian, and we are adding thousands of those books to our collection. - Steele Lawman
tell me more about the Devil's Bible? - RepoRat
at least they didn't pulp the collection. i've heard of that being done. - Big Joe Silence
The Devil's Bible isn't actually in the collection we were given, just a photograph of it. :) It's the largest extant medieval manuscript, currently in the collection of the National Library of Sweden. - Steele Lawman
awwwww. I wish you had it, because it looks AWESOME. - RepoRat
Joe, agreed. We think it's good for the center to be rid of the responsibility for an asset they could no longer manage, and good for the college to be able to expand our already-extensive art history collection. The gift also includes a good deal of books about the American West and American Indians that we are happy to have. - Steele Lawman
RepoRat, me too! But it isn't that kind of collection. - Steele Lawman
