Wife Acceptance Factor (WAF).

Posted 03-11-2010 at 05:27 AM by dsmyth

The Wife Acceptance Factor, or Wife Approval Factor (WAF), is an estimation of the wife's acceptance or refusal of a new acquisition by the husband.

The Woman Acceptance Factor is inversely proportional to the possible amount of conflict resulting from the different points of view. The lower the WAF, the more convincing needs to be done, or the more conflicts arises from the acquisition or project.

Wow. Linux has come a LONG way since Slackware 3.2

Posted 03-09-2010 at 11:35 AM by Raveolution

Yeah, that's when I started using Linux. Since then I've been on Slackware up to 9.1, and then mainly Redhat from then on, stopping at about RedHat 9 and then jumping back on around Fedora 7, then off again around Fedora 9, and now I'm running a fully upgraded install of Fedora 12. Well, it'll be fully upgraded when I reboot, which I am want to do whenever a kernel or X upgrade occurs. Other than that, it's been six SOLID weeks since I've booted this comp into Windows, and three days as far as my...
