04:57 pm - Goddess of all things written
Screaming Mob: BRING OUT THE DOCUMENTATION! We want the docs! You can't withhold knowledge from us! We demand documentation!
Picket lines start forming outside the hapless cubicle.
Me: Oh dear. What are you looking for?
Screaming Mob: We want to run a built-in client through the undocumented interface utilizing a hoard of screaming monkeys as console jockeys.
Me: I'm not sure we have that.
Lone voice from the screaming mob: But we're sure anotherWriter wrote it!
Me:So you're coming to me for help? No, no, don't answer. I can see that you're here. Let me ask thirdWriter. (Fires up an AIM to thirdWriter) What is that book you wrote with anotherWriter?
Screaming Mob: But we just came from thirdWriter!
thirdWriter: It's the Undocumented Interface User's Guide.
Me: What's in it?...No nevermind, I'll just call it up here. (Opens a directory of files named client1, client2, client3...etc. Scrolls down to uiguide.pdf. Opens it. The Screaming Mob gasps in awe. Locates the chapter entitled Hoards of Monkeys Running The Client that the Screaming Masses Want Using Our Undocumented Interface)
Solies: Nice.
Screaming Mob: Yea!!!!!!!
(The crowd disperses happily.)
Solies: (helping clean up the mess left by the Screaming Mob) I'm just impressed that we were able to bring together such a diverse group united to a common purpose.
Me: Harrassing me? There's a giant step for mankind!
Robert: (Stepping over the trash left by the mob) So were you able to help them?
Me: Of course. It was a documentation question, and I am the goddess of documentation. My reputation is still intact!
Screaming Mob (dispersed): (cheers.)
Current Mood: tiredtired
Current Music: The Carter Family "Worried Man Blues"

I asked myself the same question. I think it's because they asked thirdWriter the wrong question and she's on heavy drugs.

Yes, I am the third writer, and . . .

sadly the drugs aren't heavy enough

and . . .

yes, they asked the question strangely

and . . .

I'm sort of tired of being asked questions only because folks don't like to deal with MLH.

Luckily for them, they don't have to. MLH is on vacation all week, hence the blissful silence...
