Tell HN: Happy New Year

So far people are wishing a productive new year. You know what? Screw that. You deserve a break, HN. Take some time to yourself. Go on a vacation. A long one. Spend some time with your wife. Or husband.

You guys are always so goddamn productive it makes me feel unproductive, and I have a full time job, a side project, and a wife who puts me on a very busy social schedule. For once take it easy and enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Seriously HN, sometimes you anger me, sometimes you entertain me, but mostly you guys amaze me and you all deserve a bit of a vacation. Tell your boss I said so.

I hope for the sake of everyone here that productivity implies more free time to spend with friends and family.

The autistic coder in me never understood why we paste printf("Happy New Year\n"); readline(); at the top of every conversation during the holidays.

But for once I'll follow protocol. Happy new year, HN!

Because it's important to acknowledge crossing an arbitrary boundary we all agreed was important, and wish each other well when we do it.

I don't get it either.

Happy New Year to you all.

In this short, brutal life you have to seize any opportunity you can to celebrate.

Happy New Year :)

To each reader I hope you a productive, hackin' new year!

Happy new year to you as well :)

Happy New Years hackers. Here is to a year full of productivity and learning!

Shouldn't this have been posted at 0 GMT?

Or has doing time math gone to my brain...
