    I love this show! No matter when you post it. Yall got the best chemistry on all of channel 9! Keep up the good work. Love the new desk. Paul should get Laura coffee every morning as part of the punishment. Or do a episode of Hot Apps LOL... no scratch that. Coffee idea sounds better. Leave it to the pro's to do Hot Apps. And maybe get some of those banana bread slices to go with the coffee. Those things rocks! anVzdCBzYXlpbmc=

    Uhm, it is now 1:18PM on Tuesday in PT and it says posted 17 hours ago, so I guess Laura failed this one already right? It should have said 24 hours ago Big Smile

    Maybe Laura's fate should involving nakedness ( god no, in all that is holy no. ) and a plackard saying "Lost To Paul" in Pike Street Market.

    Or Laura having to put Paul face as the Background and or lock screen on her phone.

    1) We have a no nudity rule.

    2) I already do that when she leaves her phone unlocked.  That, and dial a bunch of 900 numbers. Shh.

    So, since you clearly both lost....

    You should both pick eachothers halloween costumes and walk arround campus in it for the whole day! We want pictures in your office, in meetings, trick or threating coworkers (not just your building!)

    Also, use Bing Haloween Big Smile And the rules don't say anything about the costumes having to match gender Big Smile But they must be the right size though.

    @Moumen: Cool! You using the algorithm I had in my code? Big Smile Besides, you should add an option on it so it doesn't add the spacing which Laura does not like since it takes up way more space then without spacing, even though I agree it looks far more organized with the spacing Smiley

    Nice Suface. You should demo it a bit on the next episode.

    Did Laura verb a noun when there's already a verb that was verbed from a noun?

    Laura, where in the world do you come up with all of the audio clips where you cut to text on the screen for a moment and comment on/reply to something that you or Paul just said? In any case, it's one of my favorite parts of ping! and adds a great fun flavor to the show. At least, I've always assumed that those quotes were your doing. Perhaps there's someone else involved in production there at Channel 9 who picks these?

    @reply to comment: Thanks Smiley but I didn't use your algorithm. I did it myself (it's not really that complicated Smiley ). As for the spacing, it actually does allow you to turn them On/Off Wink (the ToggleSwitch at the bottom)

    Come on guys! would you vote it up for Hot Apps? Big Smile
