I got on to say something about how there was more traffic to the mod_virgule archive than I expected, and ask if I should start a mailing list, but then I saw binaryfoo's diary entry and it changed the flavor of my day. It's cloudy out, perfect weather for introspection. Today has ceased being a good day for work.
More on thunk. The spouse factor seems to be an oft-overlooked hacker-related issue, and I don't doubt that folks on Advogato would have quite a bit to say about this. Maybe there's something relevant in the linuxchix mailing list archives.
