Ch*rp those basement stairs are slippery! Time for some of that Heinz stuff... you know, the stuff you have to wait for. 'fraid this will be an ironicly quick one though. Hardly a long pint.

Depends what you do with your Time, nest paw? In your case I think you're already running the wetware version. It may not be as "ooh shiny" as the latest iThing, but it's Time tested.

Amazing story. I never cease to be amazed at your sandcraftiness. Best I've done is, after installing an 8 bit memory board into a 16 bit computer, configured it as a hard drive, and then put the windows swap file on it (because if I simply let Windows manage memory, it would not know or care that the 8 bit memory is so much slower). So, I had memory acting like a hard drive acting like memory. I think I posted details (way) upthread.
My mustard story: We needed to build a temporary extension for a stage. This is fairly simple woodwork: lay out 2x4s, brace them, cut plywood to fit on top, add legs. The extension was to be in the shape of a flat isosceles triangle, about eighteen or so feet wide and from 1/2 to 2 feet deep. So, it couldn't be cut from a single 4' x 8' sheet of plywood. And the legs were close together at the ends, so it was a little bit tricky to drill for the screws. But, overall, no big deal. I've done this many times before, and the person I was working with was a professional building contractor. However, it was not a good day, unless you were a mustard salesman. It was some years ago, so I don't remember the details, but between the two of us this was the absolute worst piece of woodworking ever made. It was warped, the straight cuts were so far from straight that you could fall into the basement in the gap they made, it wobbled, none of the legs went on right, it ended up being the wrong size, it used all of our C-clamps to keep it attached to the main stage, and we were glad that it was only going to be used for that one show and then discarded with prejudice.
Alas, every director since then wanted the stage extension.
The theater in question has since closed down and the dumpster was engorged with its detritus. I don't think that had anything to do with it, but at least that mustardy secret died with the theater.
"We shall never speak of this again."
I've also got a telephone ringer I built that was stillborn. Too bad; it would have been treeish had it been steakish, but now it's just mustard looking for a hotdog.
But on your end, yay PCB STAF!

I guess I retrofulfilled the decree there. So much timey-wimey!

Resistance is futile.
I want to say how much I enjoy seeing all the ottifications, and the past-ottcolored. So wingish! There are some I don't remember seeing before; it could be my CRS, but it could also be time travel. In any case, brings me smiles. I've noticed that (but haven't statistically investigated whether) the otties peaked after the voldeframe, and have dropped off. I'd wondered about that, and have concluded that in the Age of the Ice Cream, people were quite concerned that the thread might die and we'd lose this home. The creOTTivity it sparked was a way to avoid that fate. But at this point, I think we're pretty confident that the OTT will not end, and we've got backups of backups in case the xkcd version does, so we're more relaxed about things. And, in the yips since the Voldeframe, we've been blessed with many opportunities to Wait For It.
I think this also extends to the anxiety blitzers may encounter in the Time when the future was unknown. (aka the "past").

No blitzrocket option? Also, the -V option seems rather dangerous. Does blintz take the -V option? I suppose that would be even more mustard-inducing!

Molpish wishes here. Just start a rumor that the house is built of sand. Anybody who still wants it must be an OTTer, and that'd be cool.

I think it is mold. (ok. ok. it might not be That bad.)
Is it ruined?
Does it matter?
Yes, it matters... it's your backpack! But I bet it's not ruined - just needs a good washing. Backpacks don't get washed very often.
But I'll give your backpack my father's incantation from every time I was sick:
"Sana te, sana - colita de rana.
Si no sana hoy, te sana mañana!"
It means "be cured, be cured, tail of a frog.
If you're not well today, you'll be well tomorrow."
I wonder if frogs have an affinity for backpacks.

If the number of staffs are increasing, either it's a bureaucracy or a sheep herders' convention. Or, a convocation of the gods.
Actually, I think that's what's happening.
