Blue and Pink Conversing

And it's conversations like these that make me love my wife more and more.

We were talking about tax time and getting papers together since there's enough tax forms behind my desk to build a fort...here's where we got it rolling.

Blue: The piece of paper that showed the breakdown of the taxes paid to the house and where the money went.
Pink: Hmmm. I’ll have to have a look at it.
B: *whistles quietly* That’s what I said 3 weeks ago when it came in.
P: I don’t remember that at all. My brain did a data dump when I wiped my stomach drive yesterday. Is that a good excuse? ;) (24 hour flu)
B: I think it stuck in some of the temp files in the root directory. You’ll know the file when you see it, but because it’s in the swap file, it’s broken into fragments. As usual, I’ll perform a search and locate the document in question.
P: Searching software components and hardware extensions are we?
B: *grin* Already the search strategy is being formed. I have a feeling the document is in the Piano directory, but might also be placed in the bookshelf directory, mantle directory, and least likely, the desk module. Document is tri-folded and has either letter head with the City of Olathe on it, or has the City of Olathe Seal. No envelope.
P: No no, you’re supposed to search MY local drives, not remote home locations.
B: Your local drives are of no use to me for this project. Your temp files are discombobulated and only retrieval from the remote home location will cause the temp files to reorganize and upload into RAM and setup for permanent storage.
P: *sniff* You don’t like my local drives. *sniffle*
B: Command: <*sniff* You don’t like my local drives. *sniffle*> has resulted in an Eye Dee Ten Tea error. (written: I.D. 10 T)

“Your local drives are of no use to me for this project.”

Please refer to the user manual that indicates all commands must be processed in their entirety or not used all. Failure to do so will result in wasted time spent debugging a issue that is a result of user error.
P: LOL. You got me on that one!
B: *wins*

*demurely points out that Blue posted the Rated-G version of today's discussion* And that's all I have to say about that. ;)

Huh? I have no idea what your conversation was about. Then again, I'm a luddite.
