I spoke to my wife on this topic last night, and she agreed with me.  She now expects all of you to bring her boxes of chocolates.  She prefers Belgian chocolate, but will consider all other variations except for white ;)

As someone who was born addicted to chocolate, I would like to dispute the phrase "chocolate is chocolate".  For example, Hershey's is very different from Guittard, the Burlingame, California chocolate that See's uses.

@Aeroengineer: I am not sure it would matter to her.  Chocolate is chocolate...

With every post you make, the hole gets deeper .... can you hear me down there? LOL

On the other hand, I have agree with your wife -- chocolate is indeed chocolate -- speaking of which, I feel a little peckish...

I am not sure it would matter to her.  Chocolate is chocolate, the reason she gets it is not near as important.

@Aeroengineer: If there is chocolate involved, I think that it will be an easier sell.

I was just thinking, aren't you going to feel silly if everyone gives your wife a box of chocolates and she asks why and we say...

How about chocolate-covered bacon?

I might be able to get her up there.  If there is chocolate involved, I think that it will be an easier sell.

@betajet: "A lotta guys wouldn't weld so near that gas tank".

Good one -- we English pride ourselves on our understatement -- and we'd certainly be proud of that one :-)

My favorite example of Minnesotan understatement: "A lotta guys wouldn't weld so near that gas tank".

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
