You Make Me Look Good. Thanks!

After half an hour I gave up on figuring out how to do my civic duty, and leveraged Adam for some help. He’s my go-to guy for this kind of thing.

He has the kind of readership that provides answers in as little as forty earth minutes, making him look pretty good in the process, but none of that was the point to my story.

I’d like to toot my readership’s horn a little, and point out that that answer showed up 40 minutes after midnight, Pacific time. I have no doubt that had it been the middle of the day, we would have seen an answer before I even finished posting.

Because you’re just that good!
