PriceChildHello there Soskel, how can I help?00:03
SoskelPriceChild is acting extremely irrational by banning me because i was asking for help00:03
Soskeli actually want to run that command00:03
PriceChildI will leave this to someone else then.00:03
SoskelPriceChild: so then unban me00:03
Soskelhe then pms me saying "cool" 00:03
Soskelyou actually give him ops?00:03
Soskelis anyone else here?00:04
naliothSoskel: what channel?00:04
Soskeli have no idea why i am banned00:04
PriceChildSoskel, I have attempted to talk to you in pm. If you want someone else to deal, you have to be patient as they aren't always around00:04
Soskelyou just said you would leave it to someone else00:04
PriceChild<Soskel> i am actually trying to run it00:05
PriceChild<Soskel> i know exactly what it will do00:05
PriceChild(might be useful)00:05
Soskeland then you said "cool"00:05
Soskelhow does that help me?00:05
naliothSoskel: you were using a very dangerous command in #ubuntu w/o any explanation as to what it does or can do00:05
PriceChildSoskel, nali.oth is dealing with your request as you wished.00:05
Soskelthen stop speaking00:05
Soskelnalioth: dangerous?!?!? 00:05
* nalioth whistles a bit00:06
naliothSoskel: you will show us respect, please00:06
Soskeli am responsible for my computer 00:07
naliothyou were asking about a potentially destructive command in a room full of n00bies00:07
Soskelthey aren't just going to run a random command00:07
naliothoh, but they do.00:07
Soskelwell, I was banned for posting a legit question00:07
naliothwhy did you choose #ubuntu to ask it in, when ##linux or ##apple or pretty much any other channel could have helped you?00:08
Soskeli can't believe he has ops00:08
naliothSoskel: remember the "respect" part?00:08
Soskelnalioth: ##linus and ##apple are full fo noobs who blindly execute commands00:08
naliothSoskel: not hardly00:09
Soskeland i need help with ubuntu00:09
Soskelnot a mac :)00:09
Soskeli am trying to run 'rm -rf /' and i get an error saying "cannot remove root directory /"00:09
naliothSoskel: perhaps you've been ignoring the /topic in ##apple 00:09
Soskelthank you so much for your help00:10
Soskelkeep up the professional work PriceChild !!!00:10
PriceChildOur pleasure.00:10

emmaHi. 03:17
PriceChildemma, how can I help then?03:18
emmaI would like to make a very heart felt request that you reconsider the choice to opt-in to the IRSeek logging of the #ubuntu channel.03:18
emmaI respect your decision to do that but I think there are compelling reasons not to so if you would hear me out, I could tell you why I hope you will opt-out of that.03:20
PriceChildThat is why I invited you here, to listen to your reasons.03:20
emmaThere are two reasons that I think are most important. But first of all I want to say I don't think all logging is the same. I know that anyone at any time could keep a personal log. That doesn't bother or concern me. I also realize that #ubuntu itself might keep a log. That wouldn't be my preference but also wouldn't concern me. 03:21
emmaSo here are the two reasons I am passionately opposed to large scale commercial logging such as IRSeek:03:21
PriceChildWhat do you mean by 'commercial' ?03:22
Hobbseeemma: are you aware of http://irclogs.ubuntu.com/ ?03:22
mneptokjdong: rather than actually *do the shit on the list*. typical hacker.03:23
emma(1) By way of comparison when I am going to post something on Google Groups (Usenet) I may very literally spend all day making sure that it is something I can live with for the rest of my life. But that is not a reasonable burden for a real-time and semi-social medium like chat. Even a support channel like #ubuntu ought to be a comfortable place to share information. The expectation is that you are sharing information with others who ha03:28
emmave gathered with you. The expectation is not that everything you say is being broadcast to the world and for all time. 03:28
LjL(1) it's already all there in our official logs03:28
emma<snip> The expectation is that you are sharing information with others who have gathered with you. The expectation is not that everything you say is being broadcast to the world and for all time. 03:29
mneptokif you follow the CoC, i don't see what problem you could have with your archived speech. if you don't follow it, you'll be banned.03:29
PriceChildI would like to suggest irclogs. is much more permanent than irseek, and will much more easily show up in google.03:29
nickrudemma: I see your point, but it's too late in this world. the way back machine type archive is the future of communication.03:30
emmaOkay but I have a second argument which bears upon LjL's objection that 'but we already have a log of our own"03:30
emmaI would just say for mneptok that many things have been justified by the idea that 'if you dont do anything wrong you have nothing to worry about'. I just don't think that's a good way to go about deciding on things. Everyone here should know I can be an articulate person, that doesn't mean I am comfortable being put under glass in every chat session. 03:31
emmaNow my second argument: 03:32
emma(2) I have ethical misgivings about taking the generous content of so many experts who are sharing their knowledge voluntarily, and in their recreational times, and then allowing a large commercial Logger to record that content for their own gain and profit.  03:33
mneptokemma: that's not at all what i said. what i said was "if you join a *public* IRC channel and follow the conduct guidelines, what content of your speech would you not like archived?"03:33
emmaNote I do not believe this likely to ever apply to an official Ubuntu log itself. But certainly does apply to IRSeek.03:33
mneptokemma: IRSeek charges money to access the historical data?03:33
PriceChildHow does irseek make money?03:34
PriceChildWhat do you mean by 'commercial'?03:34
LjLmneptok: i think she's thinking like walking around in public streets and being filmed all the time.03:34
mneptokPriceChild: my guess is Google (or similar) ad revenue03:34
PriceChildI don't see ads :/03:34
emmamneptok -- IRseek is a business, just because they have not yet monetized their product does not mean they will not or don't want to. They are not doing it for altruistic reasons. They have a CEO and a marketing vice president.03:34
mneptokemma: so do we.03:34
emmaPriceChild - They are a business.03:34
mneptokemma: best delete Ubuntu off your machine *right now*. Canonical has bizdev people!03:35
LjLemma, remember that Ubuntu itself (well, 99% of the software it's made of at least) can be taken by any commercial entity and sold, or commercialized in pretty much any conceivable way.03:35
emmamneptok - Then really my second argument (and my first for that matter) is a reason not to be logging anyone on a large scale. It's really not very considerate.03:35
mneptokemma: "considerate?"03:35
mneptokemma: if i stand on a public street and talk, anyone and everyone can record what i say.03:36
mneptokthis is no different.03:36
emmaLjL - I don't think that's relevant. I am not an expert myself but I might be some day and there sure are a lot of them in #ubuntu right now. They are doing that out of a sort of kindness. They enjoy helping others and being part of the community that assembles here. It is wrong to be profiting from their content. 03:36
mneptokemma: who is profiting? and how?03:36
LjLemma: most of the people who *develop* Ubuntu do it for the same purposes as you mentioned.03:36
emmamneptok - Yes let me address that also because I hear that quite a bit. This is very important so please don't shut yourself off to what Im about to say. 03:36
emmaLjL -- That's good for them but not really relevant to the people who are giving support and talking about Ubuntu in what they consider to be a conversation amongst people who have gathered together.03:37
LjLthey "consider"? where did they read the contract that said specifically that conversations wouldn't be recorded?03:38
* nickrud kinda likes that his glittering advice is archived for posterity03:38
emmaNow gentlemen I have to ask you for two things: (1) It happens a lot in discussions like this that people start to get inflexible because it starts feeling like a debate and the instinct is to win. It is most important that it not go that way. I respect all you are saying and I want you to listen to me in all good faith as well. 03:38
PriceChildWe are not all gentlemen.03:38
emmaand (2) Please understand that four of you are speaking to me at once so it may be difficult to answer all objections in a linear way, and you might feel like I'm not listening when I am.03:39
emmaOkay now let me speak to what was said about this being "public". I have to tell you all that this is not public. Not in the true sense. For example a public street corner is public. And a public library is public. That those are public is undisputed. And yet, it would certainly be considered unethical to record all the conversations at a public library, broadcast them to the world for all time, and profit from the valuable content of a03:41
emmall that surveilance. 03:41
mneptokemma: you're speaking on behalf of the "experts" that give advice. have you actually asked one?03:41
nickrudemma you don't have to convince me, in principle I'm on your side. In practice, you're fighting a war that was lost years ago.03:41
emmaAn IRC chat room is not a public place like those places even while the equivalent of logging in those places is not tolerable. 03:42
mneptokemma: and please do not speak of a company profiting off logging, as you can provide no credible evidence that that is even happening.03:42
emmaAn IRC chat room is not public. It is 'open to the public' and that is a very different thing. It is like having an 'open house'. Your house is not a public place just because you welcome the public in to it.03:42
emmaAn IRC chat room is on a private server and there are ops. Which as you all know very well you do not allow people to speak in your chat rooms in the same way you would have to if it were actually 'public'.03:43
nickrudemma: not true, that last. I've evicted many people from homeless shelters for the very speech not permitted here03:43
emmamenptok - I believe that is common sense. IRSeek is not doing this for a hobby or for charity. They have a CEO etc -- http://www.bcasol.com/index-4.html03:46
mneptokemma: that says *nothing*03:46
emmanickrud - I think that the substance of my argument still stands.03:46
mneptokemma: Canonical has a CEO. whe have a Marketing Director.03:46
mneptokemma: my point stands. reference facts in evidence, not your personal hunches.03:47
emmamneptok - so you think that IRSeek would have a CEO, a Cheive Technical Officer, and a Marketing Director but they have no intentions of monetizing their logging service?03:47
mneptokemma: monetizing how?03:47
PriceChildemma, that link says nothing about irseek?03:47
nickrudPriceChild: ircseek.com about us tab, last link on the page03:48
PriceChildemma, why shouldn't people be able to make money off of ubuntu as a product? Isn't that one of the aims of the project for most?03:48
PriceChildnickrud, ah thanks03:48
Hobbseeemma: please.  i'm not a gentleman.03:48
PriceChildthat's part of the freedom 03:48
mneptokPriceChild: this argument is a red herring03:48
mneptokemma: my point stands. reference facts in evidence, not your personal hunches.03:49
emmaPriceChild -- It's hidden a bit.  Go to this link -- http://www.irseek.com/    then go to About, and look down at the very bottom for a tiny link called, 'here' 03:49
nickrudredherring Hobbsee you haven't been talking03:49
Hobbseei was before.  i was afk :P03:49
emmamneptok -- I've shown that IRSeek has a CEO and is a business. If you really do think that IRSeek is just someone's hobby or is doing this as a charity then we will have to agree to disagree but I'm surprised you think that.03:49
Hobbseeafaik, though, there's no restrictions on what you can do with the stuff on irclogs.ubuntu.com - so anyone could use it commercially, if they wished03:49
mneptokemma: Mark Shuttleworth. Gerry Carr.03:50
nickrudmneptok: no, it's actually a valid point, it's just that it was lost when google and the wayback machine and the idea of 'my gosh, we can save _everything_' became the web's philosophy03:50
emmamneptok - I'm not sure how the fact that Canonical is a business has any relevance. 03:50
PriceChildif someone can make money using ubuntu then I wish them the best of luck03:50
PriceChildI would love to see them succeed.03:50
mneptokemma: what makes us different from IRSeek?03:50
emmaThe problem is not with businesses. I may have a business myself. My problem is with having to associate with businesses and them profiting off of my content without my permission. 03:50
Hobbseeemma: a question for you03:51
mneptokemma: you have not proved that is happening.03:51
emmamneptok - I choose to use Ubuntu like I choose to use Colgate toothpaste.03:51
PriceChildemma, do not speak in places such as #ubuntu then.03:51
Hobbseeemma: if irseek, or another business, were to wget the irclogs stuff, would you have objections to that too?03:51
emmaPriceChild I think that's a pretty unfortunate compromise. I hope that you will not close your mind to other alternatives.03:52
PriceChildemma, we help manage #ubuntu, because we want to aid in supporting users. If irseek believe their project can help spread more support to people then I don't want to get in their way.03:52
emmaWell it's too bad that what I've had to say here could not be more effective. 03:53
mneptok(i.e. "crap, i didn't win.")03:53
Hobbseeemma: are you planning on answering me?03:54
emmaI'm getting the feeling like people's minds are consolidating just like hardening cement so I'm not sure there is much more I can say. I hope maybe for a miracle and people will bother to scroll up past the 5 people talking to me all at once and find the things I've said and actually think about them with the rational parts of your brains.03:54
PriceChildit is not a matter of "i wish you had listened more", its just "we don't agree"03:54
Hobbsee(before you spit the dummy?)03:54
emmaHobbsee - I would not endorse that either. 03:54
PriceChildnow you're calling us irrational...03:54
Hobbseeemma: yet you haven't raised a complaint about that.  you're saying there should be no public irc logs at all then?03:55
mneptokclever way to diguise you ad hominem remarks03:55
emmaNo but I am affirming that you have rational and irrational parts of your brains. I think everyone knows that's true about all human beings. 03:55
emmaNaturally I hope that you will use the rational parts to assess what I've said. 03:55
PriceChildemma, stop digging. That comment implies we are being only irrational.03:56
nickrudemma: careful there, you're walking very close to the fallacy of agreement=rational disagreement=irrational03:56
emmaIn fact, if I might say, not only did I not call you irrational I actually explictly said you have rational parts of your brain, which is not something I might say about everyone. 03:56
* Hobbsee waits for emma to actually ansewr the question03:56
mneptokemma: i'll try looking at the somewhat attractive side of your face for a while.03:57
Hobbseemneptok: quiet.  let her answer to me.03:57
mneptoknot that i'm calling you ugly. in fact, i just admitted you have somewhat attractive parts.03:57
emmaHobbsee - Probably the reason I haven't answered you directly very much is because I am one person and you are part of 4 or more people. And you entered into this late.03:57
Hobbseeemma: let me advise you that i'm not unable to read backscroll03:58
* Hobbsee double checks the backscroll03:59
emmaOkay well in summary. I think that having large commercial scrolling is a bad idea because (1) It's intrusive and does not create a comfortable environment to share information in a setting where you know who you are sharing information with. And (2) Because generous experts are volunteering their time and having their valuable content published so that a company they do not associate with will profit. 04:00
emmaThank you for your time. I will probably just never say anything in #ubuntu. I know that's not such a great loss to any of you. I care about what's right though. 04:00
Hobbseeso, that nukes forums, public irc, etc04:01
emmaoops, in that above post I said scrolling when I meant logging.04:01
Hobbseein fact, you'd have to make sure no one from a company is part of the channel, as they might use it for commercial means04:01
emmaOkay well first of all on forums I literally might take an entire day thinking about what I say and how I'm going to say it.  04:01
emmaAnd secondly, an IRC channel is not public which i was pretty clear about above.04:01
Hobbseewhat i don't undersatnd about what the great problem with your helpfulness being used for commercial purposes actually is04:02
Hobbseewell, public irc, ie, not queries04:02
emmaHobbsee -- If IRSeek would replace my name and only use my ideas but not my exact words I wouldn't have any problem with that.04:02
Hobbseethat being said, i can't imagine commercial people wanting to trawl thru irc logs to find answers to questions - forums would be easier04:02
emmaYou mean consumers I guess.04:03
Hobbseeemma: a copyright issue, then?04:03
emmaI think so .04:03
no0ticHobbsee, it seems the contrary04:03
Hobbseeno0tic: eg?04:03
emmaI am not too smitten with anything I write being published without my permission and for some one elses gain. 04:03
no0ticif ircseek _would replace_ her name... she wouldn't have any problem with that04:04
emmaI'm no Ubuntu expert, maybe I will be some day and then it will be #Ubuntu's loss since I won't be talking there.  But I am a writer and I don't want my good writing or my good name associated with IRSeek which I do not trust or endorse.04:04
no0ticit seems she doesn't want her name to be logged beside her words04:04
* nickrud is incredibly grateful there are no logs from the 80's04:05
Hobbseeemma: nor anyone else who may happen to log the channel, then later reproduce it04:05
Hobbsee(i assume)04:05
emmano0tic -- I also said that they would have to use my ideas but not my exact wording.04:05
no0ticah ok then 04:05
emmaHobbsee -- Well you know, I'm sure you are reasonable and you can see a reasonable difference between IRSeek with its CEO and Marketing Director and large profile, versus some Old Lady keeping a log on her computer. 04:06
Hobbseeemma: how do you know that it's only old ladies in that channel?04:06
emmaThere is such a thing as 'fair use'. IRSeek is not fair use.04:06
emmaThis is becoming a philosophical conversation isn't it? Not that I'm not interested in that kind of thing. I have a degree in philosophy actually.  04:07
emmaOh by the way is this channel also logged? I don't really like the idea that everyone in the world now knows that I have a degree in philosophy04:07
no0ticyes it is04:07
Hobbseehow do you know that no one else is?04:07
emmaDo you see how there is a difference between talking to the people in front of you and talking to people you will never see or know ?04:07
PriceChildemma, of course you are interested in this kind of thing. Yes the channel is logged.04:08
Hobbseeemma: sure.  although you shouldn't assume that you will never meet the people online, incidently.04:08
emmaOkay well if this channel is logged by IRSeek I'm going to have to stop talking here also. Goodnight gentleman. 04:08
nickrudThe Lost Battle, web privacy04:08
no0ticnot by irseek04:08
Hobbseeemma: again, i'm not a gentleman04:08
PriceChildemma, not by irseek04:08
PriceChildno0tic must be wondering if there's an echo in here?04:09
Hobbseeemma: but, i'll ensure that the guidelines have a release in there about the copyrights of what is said in any #*ubuntu* channel - that it's in public domain04:09
Hobbseeso then there is no confusion04:09
no0ticPriceChild, en echo that adds words, nice :)04:09
Hobbseeemma: will that work for you, and others?  obviously, you will choose not to participate, which is valid, but then others will be aware, assuming they read the guidelines, of what their work may be published under.04:10
nickrudemma: your real complaint is you can't just kick back, have a brew (or whatever) and just chew the fat on ubuntu channels, without being recorded for posterity, right?04:11
emmaI wonder if you would actually put it in the topic or entrymsg that users who write anything in #ubuntu lose all rights to their content and it may be used by third parties for commercial purposes.04:12
Hobbseeemma: it'll go in the guidelines, whcih is linked from the topic.04:12
Hobbseeemma: (topics have limited space)04:12
emmaBecause that seems to be what you are saying is the reality and what you are endorsing.04:12
emmaI find that really sort of creepy at best and abhorent at worst. To be totally honest.04:13
Hobbseeemma: that's true - but don't assume that ubuntu development or anyhthing is any different04:13
emmaBut you guys seem okay with that and it's your channel (note, it's your channel not a 'public' channel which is why you can do what you want)04:13
emmaHobbsee put it in the entrymsg 04:14
Hobbseeemma: again, that has limited space04:14
nickrudemma: ok with it? no. realize that every single word I put up on the net gets saved somewhere? resigned.04:14
emmatell people in the entrymsg that they lose all rights to everything they write in Ubuntu and that it may be used by third parties for commercial gain.04:14
Hobbseeemma: the longer it is, the less people will read it04:14
PriceChildemma, its not going in the entry message.04:15
emma"Warning: You lose all rights to all content submited to #ubuntu and it may be used by third parties for commercial gain."04:15
HobbseeOTOH, i wonder how one would effectively go licencing under a Creative Commons Attribution 2.5 License04:15
emmaPriceChild,  because you aren't proud enough of it. I dare say. It really doesn't sound so good does it. Even though it's the truth. And what does that say?04:15
Hobbseein terms of the capacity to be able to resolve infractions04:16
emma"Warning: You lose all rights to all content submited to #ubuntu and it may be used by third parties for commercial gain."04:16
PriceChildemma, careful, I might quote you on that in my book.04:16
emmaBased on everything you all have said the preceding is the truth.04:16
Hobbseelike any other area of ubuntu development.04:17
emmaAnd yet you don't dare or are reluctant to tell people.04:17
emmaWhat does it say when the truth is not something you are comfortable informing people about?04:17
emmaIs it really something you want to be supporting in that case?04:17
Hobbseeemma: i think you're the first person to actually ask04:17
emmaWell that leaves us with enough to think about. Farewell.04:17
nickrudemma: if you will stop ranting, you'll see that Hobbsee is trying to find a working solution04:17
Hobbseeah well04:18
Hobbseeso, it's all public domain then.04:18
PiciIs it worth it for me to read the backlog of this?04:18
HobbseePici: not really04:18
PriceChildHobbsee, i think its best we get council to just confirm that04:18
HobbseePriceChild: elkbuntu LjL nalioth ping.04:18
HobbseePriceChild: there's your council04:18
* nalioth is here04:18
Hobbseenalioth: +/- 1 for making any logs of #*ubuntu* public domain?04:19
PriceChildpublic domain!!!04:19
PriceChildand lets hide it away in the guidelines because we're so ashamed of it04:19
nickrudheh. gpl, and try to track down the licensees ;)04:19
mneptoki love people that try to use big words to sound intellectual, and then repeatedly misspell them.04:34
PriceChildcrap, i didn't spell my name wrong again did i?04:34
naliothmneptok: hay! joo tayk dat bak!04:34

Hobbseemneptok: only other companies using it 04:36
nickrudwe could always go back to single line dialup bbs's, then we'd have some privacy04:36
mneptokit's like all the "as a critical piece of infrastructure, Launchpad should be free software! sincerely, idiot@gmail.com"04:36
nickrudheh indeed04:38
tonyyarussomneptok: Gmail isn't required to participate in Ubuntu.04:39
mneptoki fail to see the reasoning.04:40
* nalioth delinks mneptoks synapses04:40
tonyyarussoIf I want to contribute to Ubuntu, I have to use LP.  That applies to everyone, not just the person who thinks to complain.04:40
mneptokthe complaint is that "as a critical piece of web infrastructure," not "i want to participate..."04:41
tonyyarussoSo you're taking people like ompaul, who only use open-source software, and telling them that they can't do that and be part of Ubuntu.04:41
mneptokompaul doe snot use only open-source software04:41
mneptoktrust me.04:41
tonyyarussoAlso, Gmail is just an e-mail service.  I might be using Evolution to intereact with it and just using them as storage space.04:41
Hobbseethere are other reasons not to use LP, apart from it not being open source.04:42
mneptoktonyyarusso: so storing your critical data in closed systems is cool, but merely interacting with one is not?04:42
tonyyarussomneptok: I store my data on my disk.04:42
mneptok"just use them as storage space" is a bit cofusing then04:42
tonyyarussoit's a mirror04:42
mneptoktonyyarusso: so storing your critical data in closed systems is cool, but merely interacting with one is not? (x2) :)04:43
tonyyarussomneptok: What if I used POP3?04:43
mneptokgo scream at Sourceforge. they've been doing the same thing for a decade longer.04:43
nickrudmneptok: tonyyarusso has the option of running his own open source email server if he chooses, chooses being the relevant point here 04:43
mneptoknickrud: and you have the option of running your own project tracker, too. just not Sourceforge or Launchpad.04:44
tonyyarussoNot if we want the stuff on our project tracker in Ubuntu.04:44
nickrudtrue. If I don't want to contribute to ubuntu04:44
mneptok(and if you think GForge is Sourceforge, you've never adminned GForge) :)04:44
mneptoktonyyarusso: untrue04:44
tonyyarussomneptok: how?04:44
mneptoktonyyarusso: GNOME does not use Launchpad.04:44
mneptokGNOME is in Ubuntu.04:44
tonyyarussomneptok: that's Gnome.04:44
mneptoketc etc etc etc etc etc.04:45
tonyyarussoGreat, so we can contribute to Gnome, but not Ubuntu.04:45
nickrudall source, not packaging04:45
mneptokso, you guys want to hack on LP?04:46
tonyyarussoPlus, you have Canonical's marketing department spewing out to the world how great open source is, and then not even doing what they themselves espouse.  It's hypocritical if nothing else.04:46
mneptokuh ...04:46
tonyyarussoIf I had coding knowledge, I would.  Don't (yet) though.04:46
mneptokthat's *really* f-ing insulting04:46
mneptoki'm going away now.04:46
tonyyarussoI'm aware of that.04:46
nickrudtonyyarusso: I know I read somewhere that launchpad will be open, but not yet. So, benefit of doubt on my part. But then, I use flash04:47
tonyyarussonickrud: I know - they've been promising that for a _long_ time, but like a number of other things, no follow-through yet.04:47
nickrudtonyyarusso: a fast moving target, from what I've seen. And ubuntu's track record overall is damned good. So, a lot of credit in my books for 'benefit of the doubt'04:48
tonyyarussonickrud: Yeah, there's lot of good stuff, but there's also a number of significant negatives with no excuse, which is troubling.04:49
nickrudtonyyarusso: I don't know what the internal reasoning (or excuse, if you will) is, but again, I do trust the people doing this, based on what I've seen. If I didn't, I'd go back to debian04:51
nickrudAt least there the cabal is hidden :)04:51
tonyyarussoon the other hand, there is still a level of separation between the distro and the primary corporate sponsor.04:54
MyrttiI wonder how old DrDerek really is05:52
Myrttibecause he seems to act like 13-yo05:52
nickrudmost ron paul supporters are emotionally 13 05:53
MyrttiI wouldn't know05:53
nickrudlucky you05:54
mneptoksomeone /j -offtopic and ask "has anyone ever gotten OpenSolaris to use a ZFS storage pool on a 1976 Casio digital watch?"06:27
mneptoki just want to see Snuxoll say "i have" again06:27
nickrudask him if he got itunes working in wine06:27
Myrttithe next one he does... 06:35
Myrttithat feller really starts to tick me off06:35
