I almost managed to not start up the laptop for two weeks, but I got an email from a customer and they had a small problem so now I'm working again
Got it fixed though and weekend is at the door so that's another two laptopless days
Back to work on Monday
Let's see if I can still remember that syntax...

return a + b

Your first new year celebration in the Netherlands?
Yes. But I am used to fireworks so noise was not a problem. Smoke on the other hand was a big problem. I felt the amount of smoke generated by fireworks here was way more than those in India. I could not see the house across our street. It was fun to see unhinged calendar independent people around.
Other than that, it was fun. Next year, I plan to do big fireworks myself (this year we only got little ones to not scare our little one) but I really need to find those which produce less smoke.
We have had a couple of incidents were people have entered our facilities with dubious intentions. So at all the card lock doors, signs were put up: "No tailgating" (as if that would make those spies say: Oh well, then we'll have to try to break into another hi-tech company).
It struck me that since we make chips, at least a third of our employees are hardware experts, shouldn't the sign display a NAND gate symbol?
Ah. I had no idea what that expression meant, as for here in the US, it's referred to driving too close behind another person or, at a football game, a tailgate party. Never heard it applied to people before.
