On Tea

"Without tea there would be no Llamasoft, no coding and, indeed, no British software business at all. The lines of code flow out upon a river of tea; this marvellous substance lubricates and stimulates the synapses and helps them to fire in a manner conducive to the generation of practical and robust code. Tea begins and punctuates the day; whenever a moment's pause for thought is needed it is to the kettle that we turn, that humble appliance, ubiquitous in every British home, without which the wheels of industry would cease to turn."

Preach on, Brother Minter.

I remember the day we ran out of tea in the fotango office. Tom pointed out:
We're programmers! That's techy speak for someone who turns Tea into Code.
More tea was bought really really quickly.

Ah, Britain. *gets teary and nostalgic* If only every other country could be so inclined.
