Gerald E. chuckled "I do love the back to the future movies. But now I can see Beck from the future."



Steven J. Pemberton , as his mother calls him, snarked about Utilita: "I received this letter from my energy supplier on 10th May, telling me they were going to install a smart meter at my house on 3rd May. (Spoiler: they didn't.)

But despite all the atom-splitting that has gone on in the area. It remains firmly fixed to the space-time continuum, and I assure you that it is indeed in the Mountain time zone, one hour earlier than Los Angeles is.

Finally, François P. (the P is for punch card) declared "While 19 years ago witnessed the start of the daily wtf (congratulations!), my files have been on the cloud for 54 years. I'm still not sure which files conflict, but if they've been waiting for 54 years to tell me about this conflict I'm sure it can wait for another year or two."
