Everyone is a little on Edge
Maz: We have a problem on IE.
QE Diva: It's really a problem on multiple browsers.
Maz: I'm not seeing it anywhere else, unless maybe it's on Edge.
Emma: We're all a little on edge.
NRECW: That really was an unfortunate choice for a browser name, wasn't it?

JohnnyB: But why would anyone use that?
NRECW: God knows.
JohnnyB: But just because we can build something, doesn't mean we should build it.
NRECW: But once we do build it, QA will insist on testing it.
QE Diva: If you build it, we will run it.

The Sum Total of Everything
Emma: Flying is weird. The airline prices are so arbitrary. I mean look at this. It's cheaper to fly and rent a car than just to fly.
Jumpie: That's because of bundling.
Emma: Well, I know but it's still weird to pay less for a flight and a car than it is for a flight.
Jumpie: Well, it's because with bundling you're paying less for both than you would each separately.
Emma: Yes. I would expect that. I know what bundling is. I'm just surprised that it would be less in totality for the bundle than the individual.
Jumpie: But of course you pay less for each...
Emma: No, less total. Not less for each. Like, okay, the flight by itself is 520$ including taxes and fees. Add in a rental car, and the total price, including rental car, changes to 503$ including taxes and fees for the whole package.
Jumpie: Oh. That's weird.
Emma: That's all I'm saying.

The wrongest of wrongs
Emma: Hey, can you tell me how to end this sentence?
NRECW: It's wrong.
Emma: But how does it end?
NRECW: It doesn't matter how it ends. It's wrong from the beginning all the way through to its complete lack of ending. It's wrong. It's a wrong sentence.
Emma: So, you're saying I should remove it?
NRECW: If you would be so kind.

Emma: Did you have fun tonight?
Princess Leapling: Yes!
Emma: So what did you do?
Princess Leapling: I don't remember?
Emma: Must have been good then.
Princess Leapling: I remember one thing. Teen Titans Go!
Emma: Okay.
Princess Leapling: And Avatar!

Princess Leapling: yeah, Herbs are yukky, but I like them.
Emma: Um, okay. That's good. (??) Scootch over and make some space for me.
Princess Leapling: But what if there's no space for me.
Emma: I think there's still space for you.
Princess Leapling: Not when daddy comes. He steals my pillow. Then I don't have any space.
Emma: If you sleep in your room, you wouldn't have to share space. It would be all your own.
Princess Leapling: It's too lonely in my room. (Starts to cry)
Emma: It's okay honey, you don't have to sleep in your room. Need a kiss?
Princess Leapling: Rocker didn't give me a kiss.
Emma: He doesn't usually. He gives you hugs.
Princess Leapling: He didn't give me a hug.
Emma: An oversight we'll have to tell him about on Saturday.
Princess Leapling: Okay. (sniffles)
Emma: Do you know how much I love you?
Princess Leapling: Yes.
Emma: How much?
Princess Leapling: You love me so much that you can't even stop.
Emma: You're so right.

Women Not to Be Messed With
Solies: Hey Emma, whatcha doing?
Emma: I'm doing a comprehensive review of the all the documentation affected by a user interface redesign.
Solies: making a gagging face behind Emma's back That sounds like fun.
Emma: Yes, loads.
Solies: What's this?
Emma: That's the list of things that I'm finding that aren't being changed, but are wrong, misleading, or confusing.
Solies: Oh, like this one, "Doc says setting not active until server reset."
Emma: Yeah, that was a big ole lie. It's effective immediately.
Solies: Locked yourself out of the server again?
Emma: Yup.
Solies: On the plus side, at least you didn't destroy your server installation like last week.
....
Emma: And that's exactly what happened.
Blinky: I'm just saying if had been Lanna, the loud yelling and crying would have been reduced to faint yips. Why can't you be more like Lanna?
....
Emma: And that's exactly what happened.
Lanna: I don't mind the screams. The office is too quiet anyway.

Current Mood: cheerfulcheerful
Current Music: faint yips and loud screams

I'm actually fine with that
Emma: When I do something the wrong way, it breaks.
Hersh: Yes, and...?
Emma: It used to work. I want it to work.
Hersh Put it back the way it was and it will work again, and you can make your changes the right way.
Emma: Fine. That works and I guess if I have to, I'll do it the "right" way, but please know that I'm silently hating you.
Hersh Silently would be good. Thanks.

Current Mood: amusedamused
