Well, it was a hot time in the old town of Chicago. It's 12:03 at 69
degrees F and 88% humidity, but it was cool in George's tonight.

Mike McCune in a breakout performance as Mike McCune!
Paul Suda in his sophmore release!
Jack Edwards as... Jack Edwards!
Peter A. Peterson as... The Guy With Six DOllars In Change!

hamburger patty, a hard-boiled egg, some cottage cheese, and some
greens. (Maybe something else.)

Peter had the Cheeseburger Deluxe.

Jack, Paul, and Peter had coffee.

Paul Suda showed us all a very cool method of loading the creamer into

quite a bit about Paul Suda's new Clockwork Programming Language, which

writing a technical book for Prentice-Hall. We also trouble shot a
script I'm writing for work, as well as just hung out and had a good

Comments, additions anyone?


PS: I'm installing Clockwork RIGHT NOW. Why aren't you?
