Mike: 2 each lazy bastards
Jim .: it is very bad.
Sam: the online application is bad.
Jim .: job fucking done.
Mike: congratulations on meeting the minimum requirements
Jim .: "the online application is the worst thing I've ever seen on the web"
Sam: true dat
Mike: make bank
Jim .: and that includes dancing hamsters
Mike: well why wouldnt it?
Sam: now you give us 2 sentences each about how bad the online application is
Mike: Would you say that the paper version of the online app was 30 feet long?
Mike: or just 20?
Mike: I'm leaning towards 30
Jim .: there's a paper version of the online app? uh...
Mike: remember the one I printed out and taped to the wall and ceiling and wall and floor?
Jim .: oh yeah
Jim .: at least 30
Sam: says the guy whose submarine only goes 20ft deep
Mike: yeah, what the fuck do you know about measurements?
Sam: i'd say 30 too
Jim .: I thought I just imagined a submarine that goes 20 ft deep.
Sam: so now you're saying you don't even have a submarine, jeez
Mike: what next? No Santa Claus?
Jim .: I'm not saying that.
Jim .: maybe i have a submarine that goes 10 feet deep.
Jim .: but I could imagine one that went 20
Mike: i doubt that...
Mike: its a stretch
Sam: why are you suddenly asking about online app anyway?
Jim .: don't you know there's no more development on admissions stuff pending implementation of Kuali?
Mike: Shiran needs numbers to help build a case against the way admissions does things
Mike: so that Tribal can build us an app
Mike: or somesuch
Mike: im sure
Jim .: uh
Jim .: how is that possibly Shiran's job?
Mike: the amount of time we spend on hotfixes and maintence
Mike: mmm maintence
Sam: well i hope the 30ft number helps
Mike: im pretty sure thats the number they were looking for
Sam: maybe put it in cm, it has more impact, 900cm
Jim .: I couldn't imagine an online app being 30 ft long.
Mike: full circle
Sam: i'd say it was also about 6ft wide
Sam: so basically its a 30' x 6' app
Jim .: that's as big as some vancouver apartments.
Mike: Jim...reach into your magic SQL bag and give me the number of abandoned apps since September 2012
Jim .: we have an online app you could live in!
Jim .: 42
Mike: i was imagining about 7
Mike: so thats great
Sam: that's 42 ft
Mike: 42 odd foot of abandoned applications
Sam: that can't be right
Mike: thats only about 1 and a half
Jim .: loling too much
Mike: i heard
Mike: Hi Shiran,
We're looking at about 42 feet and 12 ounces of abandoned applications
Sam: Just paste this convo in for her
Mike: Our online application consumes 72 litres of webspace
