You know, there are times where I find myself wondering “I think you really missed your calling in life… You should have been a poet!”
And then there are times (like for example, the above chosen title) where I realize “You know, you should really just consider yourself lucky that you

You asked for more choices, and now you have them. You can now generate a virtual appliance in the Microsoft Virtual Server VHD format directly from within rBuilder Online.

[M:Speak(with a whisper(reaching a near obvious swelling of tears))] “that’s … how … much.”
[M.: Action: one last sniff, and… lower head in obvious moral suffering, and while crouching your shoulder, turn, and…
You know… now might be a good time to consider *RUNNING LIKE YOU’VE NEVER RAN BEFORE, THEY’RE GEEK BOY!!!
