(obligatory FiPi reference.)

Geoff.'s user page throws the following error:

Error Occurred While Processing Request
Invalid list index 2.
In function ListGetAt(list, index [, delimiters]), the value of index, 2, is not a valid as the first argument (this list has 1 elements). Valid indexes are in the range 1 through the number of elements in the list.

You know you guys can drop the period, that was just because geoff was taken.

I'm glad my first metatalk post was something totally out of my hands.

I never seen anyone make so many references to the pile on Metafilter.

Aren't you special!

And this has *what* to do with filepile?

Hey! SpecialK420! Can you share with this dude for a minute?

Interesting; I thought I tested it a few other ways and got the same error each time; oh well.

*cough* -I- thought it was significant enough for it's own thread at the time...

Re: FiPi reference: I was trying to cover for the fact that I had just woken up when I posted this and had gotten confused as to which site I was on. Note to self: No posting before caffeine. I rarely reference FiPi on MeFi... they're two great tastes, but they don't necessarily go well with one another.

FilePile? I've decided I don't need a FilePile account. I wouldn't take one if it was offered.

i have one. i've forgotten the password. i never saw the point. whoosh on me, i guess.

These are not the droids you're looking for.

Sorry, SpecialK. I was pre-caffeine too, and probably unnecessarily snarky.

i never saw the point.

Holy Fucking Shit. I don't actually LOL very often, but I think my neighbors heard that one. What an excellent all-purpose excuse. I'll be trying that in many new contexts from now on. "Sorry, boss! I fucked your wife, but it was all pre-caffeine, and, if you count the night before, post-alcohol!"

God I miss the Clinton days....

just kidding, SpecialK - it was a legit bug which had yet to be reported as its own thread. If you're not a professional bug-isolaltor-and-reporter (like so many of us here) count yourself lucky!

every bug has its thread. you cant have your bug if you don't eat your thread. a bug in the hand is worth two in the thread. don't take any threaded buggles. bug goeth before a thread. never count your bugs before posting your thread. don't put all your bugs in the same threadlet.

It's "Bug goeth before the fall," you semiliterate freak. What, you ain't never read a book before?

And why is the FiPi reference obligatory?

(Except of course as an excuse for me to restate my deep and ever abiding yearning for an account there, I mean.)

the thread, I mean. Never mind. I told the joke wrong. It's why I don't do standup. You're welcome.
