Lol, nah custom roasted coffee. It's actually fun to roast coffee, surprisingly. Unfortunately, I spend more time working on back-end code than the website. Eventually I will have to fix it if I ever want to go prime time. Someone where I work said he wanted Blue Mountain coffee so I have been looking around to find an importer but most places I can find it aren't selling at import rates if you know what I mean.
I was getting prices for dev tools for my possible new job, and I couldn't believe my eyes - Visual Studio 2013 Ultimate about $13.3k. HOLY CRAP!
I remember when the most expensive MSDN subscription was just $700, and included ALL Microsoft software products, and that was when they actually pressed CDs to deliver and update it.

You see that, in the distance? The small, bright, thing? That's the point, and you've missed it.
Not so very long ago you could pay MS $700 for an MSDN subscription and get actual physical disks with pretty much all the software MS produced. Now you have to pay $13.3K for less (for example on the old full subscription you'd get all the current Windows flavours, not just server).
