I seem to fail at either remembering or googling

There's a comment that was made on either the grey or the blue, many years ago. I'd like to use (and attribute) it, but either my memory or my google-fu is failing. [more inside]

A tiny General Systems Vehicle appears!

Colossal congratulations to EndsOfInvention and his wife who had a baby around midnight, GMT! Seeing as he is an all-around good guy and excellent dad, this shiny new unit has excellent general prospects. [more inside]
