Viral Music

If you're blue and you don't know where to go to why don't you go where fashion sits,

Puttin' on the Ritz

Different types who wear a day coat pants with stripes and cutaway coat perfect fits,

Puttin' on the Ritz

Dressed up like a million-dollar trooper,

Tryin' hard to look like Gary Cooper

(super duper)

Come let's mix where Rockefellers walk with sticks or um-ber-ellas in their mitts,

CPM in text?

Does anyone know of a text-based method of representing a Critical Path Method model?
 
Thanks,

The Perfect Computer Programming Environment

1. Good music -- Jazz, folk, or some of the milder hip-hop. Sprinkle in some Techno every once and a while. Plenty of Rolling Stones.
 
2. Office a window, preferably overlooking traffic.
 
3. Good cigar.
 
 
Give me that, and I'll Code The World!
 
All The Best,

Best Music Ever

Right now, I'm listening to my all-time favorite song. Ever.
 
"Silver Bells" by Perry Como.
 
This song immediately snaps me back to a wonderful time in my life ... a youngster, no responsibilities, parents taking me Christmas shopping in downtown York ... presents under the tree ...
 
Christmas was my mother's time; she decorated and had the Christmas spirit, without ever going overboard.
 
You'd show up at her front door and instead of "Hello" when you walked in, you'd hear "Merry Christmas".
 
What a wonderful woman. What a wonderful time of year.
 
What a wonderful song for bringing all that back to me, time and time again.
 
What songs do that for you?
 
All The Best,

Home Office: What Color?

I have a room at home that will become my new home office. Currently, the walls are eggshell white. The carpet is light gray but can/will be changed -- most likely be replaced by laminate flooring of a color that will go with the walls.
 
And that's my question: What color to paint the walls?
 
Right now, Orange is the front-runner.
 
Your suggest is wanted.
 
Thanks, and All The Best,
