The sun’ll come out… has come out… is out

I think that this point I can officially declare that I have just pulled my first true all-nighter since May 15, 1998, when I put off writing an 18-page paper in Spanish until midnight of the due date. And when I say true all-nighter, I mean one after which I did not have the opportunity [...]

Refresh! Renew! Recycle… no, probably not.
