All Those Lovely "Easy Questions"

Posted 12-26-2005 at 06:11 PM by XavierP

Ingredients:
1 blog
1 blogger
Mixed users
Mix of things that need to be said

Stir well and leave to percolate.


What's this all about then eh? Well, since I already have a blog and since everyone else will be blogging about their Linux experiences, I felt that I needed to do something a little bit different.
