Okay, I've had enough of this. I invented the term "open sores software"
in 1998, and I'm tired of people using it like it's some kind of
brand new hilarious sarcastic joke. It was funny once. Once!
And I did the once! Last March! So knock it off!

My packing up reveals that I no longer need the karaoke machine (the machine I recorded BSD, NST, and the rough draft of OMP!(25K-4)YOPPO on). I
haven't needed it for months, and I don't even have any microphones
that fit it anymore (it takes standard 1/4" jacks, but my only microphone
is one of those professional-looking three-prong deals). I'd like
to give it to someone who would use it for home recording, but there
are logistical problems inherant in getting it to anyone. But if
you want it or know someone who does, let me know. It still works fine.

The Penguin Computing ad on Linuxtoday asks "How do you get 21
penguins in a rack?" It advises purchasing the Penguin 200, as
"you can fit 21 servers on a standard rack". However, this assumes
a needlessly wasteful policy of one penguin per server. With eight
penguins per server, you'd only need three servers to get 21 penguins
on a rack. One server can handle eight penguin processes without
Also, I just realized that instead of remembering "Thirty days
hath September, April, June, and November", you can remember
"four, six, nine, eleven". It's easier to memorize and it's also
faster to go through. Or, if you're an EE type, you can turn
the numbers into binary, make a Karnaugh map, and get
"a3 v a4a1".
They laughed at my theories! But now I'm laughing... at them!
AH HA HA HA HA!

If you visit my site on any kind of regular basis (ynn.com, infoave.net, bellsouth.net, saunalahti.fi (!),
etc.), let me know who you are 1) because I'd like to know, 2) so I
can change the Browser Greetings program to greet you. Thanks. If
you don't want me to know who you are, at least tell me that. Through
BAH/HumBug or something, Idunno.
