i was chatting with tricky when that particular neuron fired... the little twerp never bothered to actually tell me. i think blue already had a couple hundred posts by then too. in my mind, kewp had been missing for weeks - i thought he was another online funeral in the making.

But what if this IS our life? Then we don't need to get one, as nothing else matters, yeah?! My posts obviously don't support this theory for me, but i'm home everyday bashing on the keyboard, trying to get something right that, in the end I find the answer was a two character command. So, philosophically speaking, LQ is the umbilical and Linux is my life. Now all of that said, the only real thing i've accomplished is adding another post to my count and making people staring at thier screens say, "What a freak!" Well, that's ok, cause if you're reading this and actually got to the end...You know the rest!

hey... don't get me wrong... i love this site. it's the only thing that keeps me sane at work sometimes. i'm just trying to keep from getting overly-existential and the postulating-about-what-life-outside-of-linux would be like. if i didn't have this, i'd probably be doing something equally geeky and antisocial. this is definitely my favorite online site, by far. i really believe that life is just doing what you enjoy doing. being a part of this particular community is part of my life - and it's actually one of the things i enjoy most. it's always hard to explain that to someone on the outside tho... and i guess the language i use on everyone else spills over a bit onto my posts here. it's hard to have a good cerebral relationship with anyone you know personally, but it's really easy online.

"hmm... somethings amiss on LQ - i must get connectivity now!!!"
hey, what can i say? I felt a great disturbance in the force...as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced.

I just woke up and read my post and your reply and feel bad! At the time it wasn't meant to sound so condescending (sp?). I appologize for that and if you or anyone else took it personally. I got off on a tangent there and really wasn't mad or frustrated at all. I was just typing and that's what came out. Sowwy...

hey, you could at least actaully go do the "behind his back" thing BEHIND rather than INFRONT of me...

star wars 2. that looks so crappy. i thought the name was soooooo bad, but the clone wars were mentioned in A New Hope, so you gotta let them off for that i guess. but the trailer is just sloppy trite. I don't care how many times anakin looks at amedala and what color brown robe he's wearing at the time...

GUNS! BOMBS! ROCKETS!

incidentally, if you didn't know, Darth Vader spent much of the 80's as the Green Cross Code man, touring UK schools teaching kids how to cross the road. no shit.

Hmmm, I feeling like buying a cape and mask just so i can't rip them off and go...

HAHA IT WAS ME ALL ALONG! and i'd have gotten away with it if it wasn't for those pesky meddling kids.

ms whacker... you got an IM handle then?

Didn't anyone realise that the tagline in your signature was exactly the same? I'm not a pesky meddling kid, but I am an evesdropping intrusive know-it-all computer geek.

Aight, Someone has to ask Jeremy to build a chat room soon or General is going to have to come with a FAQ. For Instance:

Q: Why is it that the Threads in General never seem to stay on topic?

That would be the transitional nature of the Posts here, where the beginning of the post is related somehow to the original note, but then sidesteps into an entirely different topic somehow related to something else. The transition does not have to be subtle, and usually occurs near paragraph breaks.

Why exactly is it that George Lucas thinks he's good enough to direct his own films? Ep 5, Empire, easily the darkest of the 4 so far, and in my slouch opinion the best, George kicks back and produces while letting Kirshner do his job. Ep 6, George gets a little more involved after letting Kershner slip in the line, "Then I'll see you in hell," and what do we get?

As Kevin Smith put it: A bunch of muppets.


I want to see this spot of dialogue for Ep 2:

Mace: Hand me my lightsaber.

Anikin: Which one is it?

Mace: The one that says 'Bad Mother@#&%er on it'.

Okay, maybe I'm all alone in wanting Tarantino to direct Ep 3, but someone, anyone else: Kevin Smith, Ivan Reitman, even Jerry Zucker could do a better job.

Oh my, today I've posted about Quake 3 and Star Wars on a Linux forum. Can I have my geek merit badge now?

Cheers,

Finegan

Ok, a Tarantino Ep 3 would scare me too much, although it would probably be killer! Anyhow, I believe Jeremy keeps the geek badges in his comp. desk's belly-drawer. I'm waiting for nomination myself.
