A student I used to work with at Tulane University wrote to me out of the blue last night. He said he owed me a steak. I had completely forgotten why he would owe me a steak, but he was kind enough to remind me that five years ago we had a bet that Linux would overtake Windows on the desktop. Of course, that hasn’t happened, so he owes me a steak.
Now, the only question is, how am I going to get the steak from my jet-setting friend? Last I heard, he was in Saudi Arabia.
