    When I try to contact the moderators I am given the [email protected] email address, however when I send to this address I get my mail returned saying that there is no such address. What gives?

    Try using the PM (private message) function to Chip, Bruce, et.al.

    Best way is to find a posting and then send. The send to moderators goes to the host site.

    Alternatively try waving a jelly donut in front of the screen, should get Bruce's attention.

    Wow, we need to fix that email address... it's an outdated one from when we were having the spam and various attack problems last year.

    chip at degreeinfo dot com will find me. And if you need to report a post, you can use the "report a post" link at the bottom right corner of every post, that way it goes to all moderators automatically.

    That's really funny. I've never heard a donut joke before. :rolleyes:

    When I was a member of the local gendarmerie in Tampa the Juvenile Assessment Center ( where we took the smaller criminals) was less than a block away from the Krispy Kreme on Florida Avenue. I wonder what juvenile crime would have been had we not had that impetus to drive there. (Actually about the same, I never arrested anyone under 18 but I did occasionally transport for someone - less paper that way)

    I really prefer Dunkin's crullers though.

    I'm glad I don't do that anymore, a much needed profession, just not my cup of tea. Always some idiot with a gun around, often it was me.

    It's worse than you think. In Massachusetts they hang out at Au Bon Pain.

    You guys can only dream of real donuts - Tim Hortons - slowly invading the US.

    The end is near, gather your loved ones. I found a point on which Dennis Ruhl and I agree.

    Tim Hortons is fantastic ! The best coffee I have ever had. (Could be the cream from those Canadian cows)

    My acquaintances working on the International Space Station joke about shipping TCMs to the astronauts (TCM aka Torroidal Carbohydrate Module).

    Maybe this is an aerospace insider joke since abbreviationa and accronyms are so prevalent in that industry.;)

    No self-respecting cop would ever be seen in an Au Bon Pain.

    And then there's Boston. :)

    The only Au Bon Pain I've ever been in is in Harvard Square, where everyone & everything is........different.

    I think that one is also where they filmed the outdoor cafe scenes for Good Will Hunting.

    Could be the original. For the L of it I just looked them up and see they started in Boston, 25 years ago. The first one I saw, a good twenty years ago, was in the Wall Street area where everyone is different despite appearances to the contrary. (Yogi would be proud of me for that sentence.)

    Someone made more money on croissants than they would have on securities.

    If the objective was to make me think to myself "does this person really think they're being original or funny", then I guess it did "work". :rolleyes:

    If you ever plan on stand-up as a career, you really need to get some material that isn't 20+ years old.

    A common mistake for non-Bostonians....Harvard Square is actually in Cambridge, a totally separate city from Boston.

    Bruce: "I've never heard a donut joke before."

    Here's a real life one: someone offering a bribe of a stack of donuts to a police officer, to avoid a DUI arrest.

    Yeah, but Mass. is such a small place. I mean, does it really matter? :)

    My mother was from Billerica back when the knowledge of electricity could have you burned at the stake. Courtesy of my then employer, I was in Lowell several years ago. Was going to trip into Boston after work one night but the traffic dissauded us.
