That is why I still think there should be a digitalmars.offtopic.

I will say that unless we do get an OT news group, I welcome that kind of thread or threads that turn into that kind... every few months or so. Some of them are some of the more interesting threads I can remember. It's one of the reasons I like hanging out here.

I mostly agree. But it would be nice if OT threads would at least stick to their own topics. Unless making mudpies and and claiming that Fritos is a vegetable is so good as to explain why God allowed Nazi concentration camps, theology has nothing to do with what makes programming fun. -- JMNorris

Perhaps what makes it fun is that we can run off on tangents and relate=20 it to so many different things?

I've been wondering when Walter will release a new level of D. That should redirect the conversation. :)
