Quantum Tea » Welcome

Welcome

I've been online since 1993, minus time off to eat, sleep, go to the bathroom, and so on. This site was designed to be easy to read, hence the larger font size.

Why "Quantum Tea"?

I like tea. I like Quantum Physics. I even studied it (physics, not tea). Quantum Tea is tea that may or may not be there, tea that might actually turn out to be lemonade if you collapse its probability wave badly, tea from an unidentifiable teabag at the bottom of the box that may be chamomile, or English Breakfast, or something else entirely. This domain name was a Valentine's day present from my husband, and has lasted much longer than a bunch of roses.

Why "Caffeinated Bliss"?

Caffeine and coding go together. The Code Red virus was named after the cherry Mountain Dew coders were drinking while they worked on unravelling and stopping it. Then there's Java, the write once, run anywhere language, named after a coffee bean. How else do you fuel an all-night coding session but with caffeine?

However, if you have any doubt that caffeine is a drug, and a potent one, consider that a dose of only 1 gram, equivalent to about six strong cups of coffee, may produce insomnia, restlessness, ringing in the ears, confusion, tremors, irregular heartbeat, fever, photophobia, vomiting and diarrhea.
