I suggest floppy for the LightBulb Mag's Users Award 2005. (Please look throughout this thread to get a picture about his contribution to the LightBub community.)

Tink, I hope you will confirm it.

As a sidenote: it's an old text. In fact, the orginal version wasn't about forums, but about Usenet groups and you can still see it in the fragments that don't fit (like the one about email clients).

The light-bulb (_correct_ spelling) outside my window's gone out - any gurus here want to help me change it? I'll even pay you...

Hmm, no, I don't think it'd be too hard to program the sockets of a light bulb. It would all screw together tightly.

Linux + light bulb == THE FUTURE


edit: I think the future should be called 'Libux'. How's that?

Yes, I agree. 1 Lux = 1.275GB. We can have MiniLuxes (1 MiniLux = 255MB), and there'll be 5 MiniLuxes in each Lux. From there we get MicroLuxes, NanoLuxes, and so on...

So a NanoLux is Damn Small Lux then

Yes, it is indeed! Although Hyper Small Lux is still much smaller, therefore more convenient

Please submit these to the FSG (Free Standards Group) so that they can update the upcoming LSB 4 (Linux Sandard Base) to include the LightBulb platform also.

used to feel that linux is kind of planting tropical fruits on arctic marshland
but now ... when thinking linux is like thinking of soap !
bring along highly "portable" linux even when we go bathing
... maybe a damn small soap

GNU's Not Unix !
LNS's Not Soap !
now ... gurus ... how to pronounce that ...

Good idea! Although may I may a correction there- it's called the Libux platform, actually.


It's raining....where's a tinfoil hat when I need one!? ...I think I might start producing Libux promo hats! Hahahahaha....

No, no, no!

You start with an appropriately-sized colander (preferably metal) to get your basic shape, wrap 5 or 6 layers of foil around it, attach some wire clothes hangers with foil tape, then cover everything with one last layer of foil for maximum reflectivity (and to preserve esthetics). Chinstraps are optional, if the fit is snug enough.
