Only in Rochester would this matter

Does anyone know the canonical spelling for the word "chromagenic?" Is it "chromagenic" with an 'a,' or is it "chromogenic" with an 'o?'

Some of the enums and comments in our code use one spelling, some use the other. Likewise for the accompanying documentation.

Oh, and does "anal retentive" have a hyphen?

More about the weekend

As I cryptically mentioned the other day, it looks like linuxspice is going to be coming to Rochester, at least for a few days or a week or two. Peri and I had been jokingly talking about "kidnapping" her all weekend, and by the time Sunday rolled around, it occurred to linuxspice that she really could come home with us, as she doesn't have to worry about the Evil Job any more. But she still has to go visit the unemployment office, which is on her agenda for tomorrow, so she's tentatively planning to drive out here afterward.

And, in case I haven't mentioned it, YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! :-)

Our actual reason for going was for our friend Dana's birthday slash end-of-chemotherapy party. We all know Dana from the Full Circle of Women conference that we all attend each year -- which is where Peri, linuxspice, and I all met -- and were saddened to learn at this year's conference that Dana has leukemia. She's still not out of the woods, but signs are encouraging; good healing vibes for her would be much appreciated.
