In other news, there is a Wager going on between Blair and I.
We have a thing happening on our machines over at Avdar -- it takes about two hours and 40 minutes -- 160 minutes.

In a few days I'll be putting in a Gigabit switch to replace the 100 Megabit switch we have at the moment.
If this thing we do still takes more than half an hour, I'm going to have to pay for the coffee and muffins all week.

The battle is on.
I should have a "powered by muffins" icon ...
