Arrrr! Ahoy there, me hearties. I be havin' some explainin' to do, but afore I be startin', ye be hereby informed that today be International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Accordin'ly, we be celebratin' with a Top 10 list. Here she blows: The Top 10 Ways Enterprise Be Different on Talk Like a Pirate Day.


Now then, the explainin'. First, I be needin' to apoleegize for missin' the last two updates. Me schedule's been a wee bit off this week. Resultin'ly, the plans for this month be changin' a tad. The event I been blabbin' about this past fortnight be goin' to be postponed till this comin' weekend. Whyfore? Because I be no longer havin' time to get it out of the way afore me first mate Kira's big event this week.


Aha! Ye didn't know Kira had a big event this week! Well, she do, and she be takin' over the updates now so as she can be presentin' it. Like T' Two Towers, this be an event LONG in the makin', and ye'd best not miss it. Not merely because it be a rollickin' good event (I kin vouch fer that, havin' read the booty under discussion), but fer other reasons relatin' to your continued healt' an' prosperity, if ye be gettin' me meanin'. (fingers cutlass)


As fer me, I'll be seein' ye swabs on Saturday, an' I plan on havin' a thing or two t' show for me absence. Till then, fare thee well, an' may the Fore (an' the Aft) be with ye....

Yarrr, I were knowin' it be list twoscore an' seven, an' if I'd a' had the time, I'd a' thought up some special list fer that sole purpose alone. But notice were short; I weren't havin' the opportunity. Mayhaps somethin' fer number 50.

Of course, ye can bet yer barnacles that TJI number 47 be goin' to be an extravaganzee worthy o' Barbecue hisself....
