  • Don't forget the original caffeinated drink: coffee. Available in stores near you.
    • You, my friend, have just touched on a big sore point. Coffee is what I drink when I don't have change for the vending machine because, after all, it's free.

      Or was. (SOB!) As part of a money saving measure, our company has recently dropped all free coffee. And we can't have coffee makers on our desks, because that would violate fire codes, and they can't keep up with firecodes across the country. Oh, and they've got these lovely new vending machines that'll sell us a tiny cup of coffee without enough sugar for 40 cents. Some of us highly think there's a connection between the firecodes and those machines, but I can't quite figure out what.

      So now, when I need caffeine, and don't have money, I'm out of luck. Coffee won't substitute, because it's not free. So I just sleep at my desk! I figure, it must be what the company wants!

      Never cut off free caffeine from your developers.

      • Why not get that caffeine sludge from Thinkgeek.com?

        It has an insane amount of caffeine in it. Just add water. :-)

        Worst comes to worst there's always caffeine pills.

        Then again, the only caffeine I get is the iced tea I drink at lunch.
        • I love thinkgeek. :)

          No, the main issue about the coffee is, "How do I get my caffeine when I have no change in my pockets?"
