FYI, there's a Tim Hortons in the RIM comic, just like across from the actual RIM building.

Mind you, it's just one of the small gas station ones, but still.

Oh...I thought that said "RIP Tims," and I was a little crestfallen.

Mmm...Tims...

(And hey, those small ones aren't too shabby - one of those kinda gave me a little extra 'fuel' on my way out of Quebec. [Smile] )

Yeah, I saw that and thought maybe Tims was having another Rrrrroll Up the Rim contest.

Ha Ha! I heard from someone who used to work at that building. ...


--------------

I like the comic on RIM. Very nice. It’s almost like you have been in that office…the exceptional detail of the Tim Horton’s across the street. Whoever at RIM Technical support that is responsible for this is a wise and brave individual. Definitely captured the essence of these folks.

....The building is the first tech support building RP5, The office is on the second floor. The irony of course is that the only time either Jim B or Mike L have ever set foot in this building was on the day it opened in 2001.

For those of us who really know the inside story the funniest line was “Hold on, our lawyer says”. Nothing after those 5 words mattered, you could have ended the strip with “…” and it would have been just as funny.

Cheers

(editor's note: nobody at RIM leaked us a photo, I just used Google Street view to get an idea of what was across the street. [Big Grin] )
