I hate work coffee. We have a keurig machine here, I will never understand the obsession with these things.

i guess it shows my provincialism, or something. i thought a dongle was one of those dreadlocky things long-haired dogs can get (particularly disgusting when around the butt).

i'd say i should get out more, but then i see what's out there....

I thought a dongle was a widget used for connecting.

That's a dingle. More commonly referred to as a dingleberry. When I was in grad school, I lived near Dingleberry lane. They would try to get it changed every now and then.

That's how it was used in this case.

The incident that this thread is supposedly about involved a couple of men who were having a conversation (while waiting for a talk or something I guess) making dick jokes about dongles.

dingle! that's right!

although i should think 'dongle' would work as well. they both imply hangy-downy things.


mostly, though, it reminds me that i want to stick with short-haired dogs. should i ever get another dog.

In response to the topic at hand: I don't care, and I don't think anyone else really should either. That's not to say that they can't care if they want to, but why would anyone want to?

So they made some cockjokes and she didn't like it.

OHMAHBAJEEZUS THE HORRAH OF IT AWLLL, THE HORRAH!

I'm going to throw in my lot with whatever group of people out there is saying "So what?"

And now on to more important things.

I am going to go on an expedition into some jungle-y place with a lot of undiscovered plants, I'm going to find a new fruit, and I'm going to call it a dingleberry, just so I can make myself a dingleberry pie. And then I'll have a dingleberry pie party, and I'll serve dingleberry pie and tea and crumpets and rice cakes and justice flavoured cookies and apple cider and I'll invite all of you and it will be smashing!

*catches breath*

We've got one of those gigantic industrial coffee machines and despite the fact that they tell us they clean it regularly, all coffee made in it tastes like it's being haunted by the coffee of generations passed.

Which is to say, not good.

There is a proper way to clean large coffee urns and samovars; one must completely remove all of the oils of previous brewings from the metal. (Straight ethanol and light but thorough scrubbing followed by a clean water rinse will do the trick.) Otherwise, it's exactly as you say: you'll be forever haunted by ghosts of coffee past.

We have one of those coffee makers you see in diners:


The hospital supplies terrible, terrible coffe that tastes like ashes sifted through a grimy paper towel, but we bring in our own so we can make good coffee in like 3 minutes. Everyday at 8:30am, 12pm and 4:30pm, like clockwork. Because we're all coffee hounds.

how big is your dongle?

USB dongles just keep getting smaller and smaller

I mean just look at this

that's tiny
____
but what you need might actually be a forking dongle

Here's a T-shirt: http://forkmydongle.com/

all proceeds go to Girls who Code, a national nonprofit organization working to close the gender gap in technology and engineering

of course, that's not actually a dongle, and the actual "forking" comment was "I would fork that guys repo," which is a rather unusual way of saying that you want to make a fork of a project and does bear a resemblance to a particular breed of legitimately sexist comment

https://help.github.com/articles/fork-a-repo

Definitely a legitimate term, and not an unusual way of saying it. I mean, github is pretty damn ubiquitous when it comes to collaborating on projects.

I'm pretty sure I've said "I would fork that guy's repo" before myself.
