I may have to end up giving up programming for something even better than programming. My wife had a feeling and we took a prenancy test this morning to find that it turned out positive so we go tomorrow to her doctor to find out for sure. All I can say is that I remember how I was with my mom so this will end up being pay back for my troublesome years:).

Pity the fool who had a child. Good luck with bringing up a child in our disgusting world.

You're going to name your child after Matthew Leverton? :P

Oh and the spelling isn't "Nicole," it's "Nicholle" :P

Caleb, Matthew, Jacqueline, and Nicole are my wife's favorite names so I just told her to combine them and that is how we came about Caleb Matthew and Jacqueline Nicole although I have to admit I didn't realize that we had picked the names of our A.CC founding members until this thread was made:o.

Have you tried finding a guy instead? ;)

Similar problem here, though. Can't find a "girl who can stand being around me for more than 5 minutes." Well, not entirely true, but close enough. Plus I've only met a single intelligent woman in my life. ::)

Well, it'd be extremely geeky to name your kid after a founding member of allegro.cc :P
