This week in “That happened: notes from #splunk”, a blog about the goings-on in the Splunk IRC channel: Disappointing your mother, viral videos in the making, nationalistic beverage pride, and a French lesson.
Will the REAL Sorkin please stand up!
Aaron Sorkin’s mother is probably disappointed he isn’t our Sorkin.
<mlanghor> anyone else watching the new Sorkin show?
<derkferz> mlanghor: ?

<derkferz> mlanghor: oh .. that sorkin – I thought you meant sorkin of splunk fame
<derkferz> the OTHER sorkin lol
<mlanghor> oh, lol.
<mlanghor> Aaron Sorkin
<derkferz> he’s not even a Dr. is he?
…And while we’re on the subject of stardom:
This week, we released some video teasers for .conf 2012 featuring some of our own #splunk denizens:

Surely there is a new Olympic sport in here somewhere:
<Nerf> I normally have about 2 cups of coffee a month. Due to an ordering error at Starbucks, I was given an Americano and a Red-eye. I drank them both. HOLY CAFFINATION!
* duckfez waits for Nerf to shake at his building’s resonant frequency
<ftk> isn’t americano the watered down coffee
<ftk> so amaericano+red eye = normal cup of coffee?
<@jlaw> americano is espresso + water, right?
<ftk> no clue
<JoeTron> jlaw: that is correct
<JoeTron> shot of espresso with hot water
<JoeTron> A single shot of espresso with about 7 ounces of hot water added to the mix. The name for this coffee drink stemmed from an insult to ‘uncouth’ Americans who weren’t up to drinking full espressos.
<duckfez> JoeTron: but can these people trying to insult us drink their beers while shooting their rifles out their pickup truck windows?
<ftk> duckfez: yes
<duckfez> ftk: no fair, you’ve lived in Florida for waaay too long
<ftk> you can do anything in the favelas
<JoeTron> all while pulling a shot of espresso
<JoeTron> true story
<jspears> I’ll form the… the part that enjoys the coffee!
Half of Splunk Support is rumored to be French…
But it’s clear that none of them took part in this conversation:
<Ayn> bon soir
<Ayn> oui, ca va. et toi?
<Ayn> est-ce que tu a une baguette?
<Drainy> Je suis un maison?
<Ayn> oh la la!
<Drainy> ok I’m going to have to bail on the french now
<Drainy> my housemate is away for a few more days so I struggle at anything after Bonjour
<wilco> je ne parlez pas francais
<Ayn> au contraire!
