Lil'Dub tagged me

1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123.
3. Locate the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences on your blog and in so doing...
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged me.


New designs result. Mary Eleanor Spear's "range bar" and John Tukey's "box plot" can be mostly erased without loss of information. The revised design, a quartile plot, shows the same five numbers.

I tag every single one of you who is right now reading this. If you have a blog, you must comply!

I bean Dubin on boring.

"This channel provides about 80 percent of its revenue, and, as a result, is the focus of the new management team that took over in 2004. The relationship between ATW and its distributors and dealers may take two forms: (1) Large distributors tend to have a vendor-managed-inventory (VMI) agreement with ATW. In this situation, ATW monitors the inventory levels of various products at the distributors' facilities, and makes additional shipments as necessary. (2) Midsize and small distributors do not have the technical capability to participate in the VMI relationship, since they don't have the technology to automatically transfer the necessary sales and inventory information to ATW"

Arguably that is only two sentences, but you get the picture. It is from David Simchi-Levi, Phillip Kaminsky, and Edith Simchi-Levi's "Designing and Managing the Supply Chain: Concepts, Strategies and Case Studies", 2008. Fun.

Oh dear.

If you choose the (p)ermanent option, the server certificate will be cached in your private run-time auth/ area in just the same way your username and password are cached (see the section called "Client Credentials Caching".) If cached, Subversion will automatically remember to trust this certificate in future negotiations.

Your run-time servers file also gives you the ability to make your Subversion client automatically trust specific CAs, either globally or on a per-host basis.

I think this is a contest to be the most boring. The closest book was really a Furman Center report on housing, but page 123 only had six complete sentences in it.

Rosso, where'd you learn to count? I see four sentences.

Hey Dubin. Long time no update. Once they start to walk, there's a lot less time for anything else, eh?
