> terminally boring

Speak for yourself. By a strange synchronicity, I have just been watching that again this evening, and liked it at least as much as the previous times around. p~

but then, I'm Jung-er than you ;)

A final /d/ devoicing to became a final /t/ is not all that strange. They're both alveolar stops. Now, a /g/ going to a /dZ/ is a little more strange, but still within the bounds of what could be expected in phonological change.

The willow tree is still weeping there, Bill
and the laddy with the twinkly eye does come whistling by.

They're both alveolar stops.

I knew Albert Veolar. He had a place on Interstate 40 on the Mohave side of Needles, California, where truckers could take on fuel and get a decent cup of coffee. It was called, naturally, the Al Veolar Stop.

Al Veolar Stop

Varry fine indeed. I myself enjoy a paronomastic cavort from time to time. You should try to work ridge into your calembour.

You'd be one too if you'd just spent the best part of a day trying to get a wireless network to work in the face of the complete ignoring of its existence by one of the nodes.

Conclusion: Reinstall W2K on said node to get the TCP/IP components working proper, like. Ah, shit!

But Groundhog Day is still one of the most boring movies I've ever had the displeasure of seeing ... p~, indeed.

I'm with Cap on this one. Seeing Groundhog Day once, was definitely one-too-many times for me.

Mind you, I have to admit that I'm not a big Bill Murray fan. I would rather avoid anything he's ever done, ever.

oops, did that come out a little harshly
