    Yak Corral, 2014.

    Code:
    With A as
    		(select	SUBSTRING(name, 2, 2) as S
    		from	master.dbo.spt_values
    		where	number = 1054
    			and type = 'lng'),
    	B as
    		(select	SUBSTRING(name, 2, 2) as S
    		from	master.dbo.spt_values
    		where	number = 21057
    			and type = 'EOB'),
    	C as
    		(select	SUBSTRING(name, 4, 2) as S
    		from	master.dbo.spt_values
    		where	number = 2048
    			and type = 'A'),
    	D as
    		(select	SUBSTRING(name, 3, 2) as S
    		from	master.dbo.spt_values
    		where	number = 2
    			and type = 'B'),
    	E as
    		(select	LEFT(name, 1) as S
    		from	master.dbo.spt_values
    		where	number = 1
    				and type = 'E')
    select	Upper(A.S + B.S + C.S + D.S + E.S) + ' ' + convert(char(4), YEAR(getdate())) + CHAR(33) as Greetings
    from	A, B, C, D, E
    If it's not practically useful, then it's practically useless.

    nope. too much free time.
    “If one brings so much courage to this world the world has to kill them or break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.

    I got a fishing pole and gear. Does that count as fun?

    In theory, theory and practice are identical. In practice, theory and practice are unrelated.

    I've had a Galaxy tablet for two years now, and use it all the time.
    Great thing to have.

    My notebook is on the way out. It survived another drop from the arm of the sofa over the weekend (courtesy of Her Indoors). Have been considering a tablet for a while but I think I'd have to get a keyboard with it. They seem great for consuming but no so great for producing.

    How do you use yours?

    I use my Tablet mostly for consuming rather than producing.

    My wife got a Bluetooth keyboard for her tablet, but the key spacing is significantly smaller than a standard keyboard (about 78%), and that makes it too small for me to touch type on so I never use it. I'd probably have to buy a "full grown" keyboard with Bluetooth, and that would be expensive and it wouldn't be very portable.

    Due to my client confidentiality concerns, I won't allow any client content on my tablet. I'm too concerned that Google will want to scan/scrape/index that content so I just plain won't permit it on my tablet.

    Don't know about tablets or expensive iphones. I have a $39 samsung phone that's a prepaid when I remember to pay the bill.
