: Many armchair remedy-makers in the Microsoft antitrust case would have liked to see Windows released as free software. But as this screenshot shows, that's not a workable solution.

I always wanted to be the originator of one of those things that gets forwarded around; maybe this will make it happen (with the Cap'n).

Apparantly, in the Windows world, the term is not "screenshot" but "screen capture". This is weird because the term was "screenshot" in the early 90s when I was using DOS and Windows. Who changed it?

: "Installing GnomeHack is about as simple as you can get. Currently, there are no binaries available or packages, so you'll need a C compiler." Did I miss something here?

: Susanna cut my hair with her haircut kit. It actually looks pretty good. It's the crew cut, not the buzz cut. I don't know if Celeste objects to the crew cut, but I know she objects to the buzz cut. I object to the buzz cut, in fact. It's ugly. But I really like the crew cut. A lot of the collab.net people (including Brian, I think) are where I was in 1998, haircut-wise. Think Penn Jillette.

I must remember to write a Segfault story about the Commission of Advertisers for the Responsible Regulation of Online Trade (CARROT) reforming as the Society for Tormenting and Incapacitating Consumers (STIC), following the failure of the incentive method for convincing people to give up their personal information to marketers. That's the sort of thing that would normally go in my personal notebook, but I like those acronyms so much that I feel the need to show them off even though I don't have an actual story yet.

Tra la, tra la, the tiger. He told a terrible tale. The turkey tipped over the teapot, and toppled away with the snail, the snail. And toppled away with the snail.

: ACTUALLY, I think some of my Segfault stories have been forwarded around. But I meant graphical forwarded around things. purple has gotten the forwarding madness going.

Note: I'm not asking you to forward it. It may be too technical a joke to forward around. It may be not graphical enough to forward around. I just thought it was a good DOS counterpart to those silly UNIX commands like %blow and ^did you switch the^regular coffee with Folgers?.
