Added DiffLines:

* HypocriticalHumour: This exchange;
-->'''Owen:''' You're both abrasive, know-it all loudmouths who like yelling and making people wrong.\\
'''Fang:''' *''yelling''* '''''You're wrong and I'll prove it!'''''


Added DiffLines:

* IllNeverTellYouWhatImTellingYou: Umesh.
-->'''Desmond:''' How come you and Fang aren't fighting anymore?\\
'''Umesh:''' What? No! I've never even ''had'' sex! ''How dare you sir!''


Added DiffLines:

* SlapSlapKiss: Fang and Umesh, to both of their considerable shock.

Added DiffLines:

* BecomingTheMask: "The Protocol" involves assuming the identity of a past programmer in order to better understand really old code and update it. This is one of the risks.


* NostalgiaFilter: Desmond feels like a kid again when his first computer is mailed to him by his uncle. He snaps out of it when it's pointed out that it would take every remaining computer of that model to match the processing power of one {{iPhone}}, and use way more electricity.
