    Good thing it updated. I was about to lose my shit

    I mean, two minutes, i get that. But THREE? Not cool

    Seriously, though. Hello Mr. Carlberg. All the best to you and yours, fellow Pac Northwesterner

    Have a lovely day,

    How could three minutes matter in a place that spends an inordinate amount of time discussing things that happened ≈ 50 years ago

    You'd think it would be at least 18 minutes on a prog site.
