Negatives are usually returns, yes.

re:spaces - that's just HTML, I think. Like, if you made an HTML page and added spaces/newlines they'd be (mostly) ignored.

I have a "markup" for adding spaces = *space* which is sometimes useful. Also, stuff in {pre} tags will keep spacing (mostly).

Thank you. I didn't know HTML just did it, or I forgot. I'm only just now getting back into HTML - my team is using ASP.NET and C# for our final capstone project.

Todd explained how he could make it in Java, but my brain auto-rejects anything Java. I understood the basic principle though... iterate over the length of the comment, allowing for one space, but stripping any after it, or replacing many spaces with one. I guess that's the kind of stuff going on with HTML that we don't see. I use my employers' JavaScript library, and I often get glimpses of the code that was written to make the code I'm using work, and that crap is complicated lol.

We have a guy at work that is like Milton, squirrely and talks to himself, and would most likely kill you if you took his stapler (or anything else).

It's actually a bad ass stapler... I laughed at the description that it would go through 40 pages... well it does, and it does it effortlessly. Stapler technology has come a long way!

I was in and out of the open order for days. Sometimes I went there via SC's link, sometimes via my email, sometimes via my history. Even though it began at SC, I can't be sure it continued to be linked to it, or if my final checkout access point was SC. I'm not really clear when the order is actually 'tagged' as being linked to SC.

I'm not sure either and I've gotten reports that seem to show it doesn't work consistently. I think that the first affiliate link that brings you to the amazon product page gets associated with that item if bought within 24 hours.

There, I just partially made up for the one last month :).

We're switching from oral (compounded) steroids to the inhaler type. I had to buy a cat spacer.

It's the same thing you use to give a kid an inhaler puff, only with a cat shaped face mask. I recently had to take a breathing test, which partially involved taking a few puffs of albuterol. They had me use a spacer like this too. It's for noobs.

This one is pretty nifty. She has to wear it for 10 breaths, and it has a little indicator that shows every breath she takes so you can count. She has to get her medicine twice per day, and we've just been practicing with without any medicine, to work our way up to 10 breaths. It's an adventure.

Poor asthmatic kitty; but, quite the lucky kitty to have a family who are willing to spend a lot of money to make her feel more comfortable. She's already used to the machine and is getting a puff twice a day. She's a smart girl. I think she knows what helps.

I got the iPhone wallet case and a phone charger (new work phone - I'm lucky ext. 13), the mice (matching couples mice), can opener, sauce pot, Aerocat, leaf tarp, and fanny pack (which turns out, is AWESOME for canoeing/pot smoking/diabetes).
