    Jolt.... mmmmm

    Haven't seen that around in a LONG time!

    I think they just chose coffee, because it's critical to life itself, and it is the most popular of the five basic food groups (coffee, Mountain Dew, Hot Pockets, Doritos, and cigarettes).

    And seeing the terror on the faces of the people, QIII did speak to them, saying "Fear not the Terminal, for it is a road both swift and secure to the Great Mysteries of Linux without passing through the dangers of The Land of Ten Thousand Competing Desktop Environments."

    It's always been a part of this forum. I was afraid they were going to remove it with the forum upgrade,but lucky for us,it has remained.
    The beans add a bit of quirkiness that I find appealing.

    It is the Cafe! Everyone's on coffee in here and buzzing on caffeine. Talk about anything after a couple of strong ones.

    I haven't had a coffee in almost thirty years, I'm over here next to the water cooler just buzzing and talking about anything, but I've always liked the coffee quirkiness of the forum. Makes it somehow more organic and human. Also adds a little social bonding as I imagine 99% of people in here are dosing up on caffeine of some sort.
