Same product, different setting.

Went to see Blue Man Group in Boston with my gf as an anniversary event.

start running on one-line LED signs
(http://www.betabright.com/Pages/windowdisp.htm) on either side of the

They start with pedestrian announcements--someone is celebrating a birthday,
someone left their car lights one, etc.  Then the announcements get a little
more notable--someone in the audience just won the Pulitzer prize--and they
announce I had just found the secret to cold fusion.

I had been working with Cold Fusion for about a month at that point and was
absolutely certain my gf had something to do with it.  How else would they
know I was working with CF?  It was however a coincidence; I now know they
were referring to the transmutation of two atoms into a single larger atom
and not server-side programming.
