Ubuntu - They Drink It In The Congo


Hey, everyone who likes/doesn't like/has never heard of Ubuntu head over to http://northwich-scene.co.uk/ubuntu/ and check out the Ubuntu song, courtesy of the LugRadio boys (http://www.lugradio.org).

Even though I didn't make it, it's brilliant.

Both monietary gifts and sexual favours are welcomed.

Not bad... but isn't ubuntu supposed to mean "humanity to others?" Why would people drink it?

And to help you sing along...

Way down deep in the middle of the Congo, a hippo took an apricot, a guava and a mango. He stuck it with the others, and he danced a dainty tango.

The rhino said, "I know, we'll call it Um Bongo", Um Bongo, Um Bongo, They drink it in the Congo.

The python picked the passion fruit, the marmoset the mandarin. The parrot painted packets, that the whole caboodle landed in.

So when it comes to sun and fun and goodness in the jungle, They all prefer the sunny funny one they call Um Bongo!
ok , i take things seriously so great that i make it as the startup rhymes for my ubuntu partition ............



PS:: http://www.umbongo.com/downloads/?PH...2d4fd0d73#song

EDIT:: now i decided to be kind of 90% ubuntu and some african studies after all these FunSunNy stuffs ....... simply great .......

I've stuck the Free Software Song by Richard Stallman up there too if anyone's interested.

Also, if anyone has any other linux related songs, I'd be very grateful.

Re : Free Software Song by Richard Stallman

i can't resist from being a busybody .......

it is a "tune of Sadi Moma , a Bulgarian dance tune" .......

Hoarders may get piles of money,
That is true, hackers, that is true.
But they cannot help their neighbors;
That's not good, hackers, that's not good.

When we have enough free software
At our call, hackers, at our call,
We'll throw out those dirty licenses
Ever more, hackers, ever more.

Join us now and share the software;
You'll be free, hackers, you'll be free.

feels like the only survival with some rats and cockroaches after a nuclear holocaust , thanks to that always trival but kind Supreme Mercy bestowed on us , a new world is left for us to play with ........



EDIT :: now playing this "blues" in xmms in repeat mode while following the lyrics above ...... oh , where's my clove cigarettes .....

Wizard of OS from OpenBSD 3.7

might be old story for some but anyway just whack .........

it's a kind of "story" song "ten minutes long and inspired by Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon album" according to the posting from KernelTrap.org .......

"something big we have been dealing with over the last 6 months of the release -- our fight to get programming documentation and redistributable firmwares ......"from Theo de Raadt , OpenBSD creator not that poster

download : Wizard of OS

Quote:
The heroine is deaf to her device
her uncles on the farm,
send out the alarm
and the shit storm flies
E-maelstrom is lifting up the house
With Puffathy inside,
twisting up a ride
to the land of OS
Hard landing, the packets celebrate
The wicked lawyers dead
The open slippers red are
Hers to take

Ding dong the lawyer's dead
You're off to see the Wizard kid

The north witch instructed Puffathy
To get yourself back home
Take this yellow road and
You'll be fine
Believe in the open ruby shoes
Now go to see the Wiz and
give Taiwan your biz
You'll never lose
The 3 friends she made along the way
Were nice but pretty lame,
lazy and insane
but they sang OK

Ding dong the lawyer's dead
You're off to see the Wizard kid

Finally we're through the trees
The city glows
It's positively green
Pompously the wizard booms
He wants the broom of triple 'w'

Go to the west
You must pass the test
For me
Bring me the ride
of the witch I despise
And you'll be free

You don't need the broom
You don't need the shoes
You don't need the wiz
You will never lose
You have all you need
You always had heart
You always had courage
Did somebody fart?
You always had brains
You answered each call
And this may surprise you
But you've got some balls
So double click heels
and work with Taiwan
And speak to your doggie
You're already gone....
darm long , what else to expect from Pink Floyd inspired

this is a gentoo song

another [garage_basement_staircase_tunnel]-"session" original by a gentoo user ...
sounds [velvet underground]-ish to me ....

listern or download from here : gentoo song

Quote:
Gentoo is finally here
running on my screen

It uses Linux every step
And ports from BSD

Why go to shop when you can roll your own
and make it start

Compiling sure takes awhile
but then it pays off

Gentoo is finally here
running on my screen

It uses GNU System
And portage like ports from BSD

Why go to shop when you can roll your own
and make it start

Fully optimized and it
pays off

The System Administrator Song

maybe very old news for some anyway ...

a live performance by a stage comedian i guess : The System Administrator Song

to tap along :
Quote:
"Hi, my name is wes, I'm from way up in Canada, and I run a website called deadtroll dot com, so check it out if you feel like it. This Is a song I wrote about some very special people who make sure your computer works. They're called "System Administrators", and they're very important. ..."

(playing guitar)

There’s a guy who works in another room, or on another floor,
He’s the one you call, when your document ain’t there no more
he’s probably a boy, but he might be a girl, or something in between
he’s the only one in the office who knows what “PC Load Letter” means

He’s your system administrator
he’s probably into comic books
and you tremble in fear when you have to hear
one of his “what a dummy” looks
got a virus, lost your password, or you just can’t print
in an hour he’ll show up and then he’ll crouch and squint,
he’ll fight to save your files, he might be there all day
but sometimes he just presses “caps lock” and then walks away
but hey! Suddenly my password works! Hoooray!

Hooray hooray,
happy sys admin day
I’m gonna buy my guy a gift to say
“Having you around means I get to stay…
stupid, and uninformed…

and I can keep opening dot e x e email attachments
and forgetting my mother’s maiden name
and I can keep naming files with spaces and ampersands and colons
cause you’ll fix it all for me!

Ohhhhh!
I’ll give you a cake
I’ll give you a hug
I’ll buy the “world’s best system administrator” mug
just help me out,
system administrator
delete my “recently viewed websites” file

System administrator
restore my network settings so I can find my F: drive
system administrator
Uh… plug in my mouse
system administrator
piss him off and you’ll be fired by tomorrow morn
‘cause he’s the guy who knows that you were surfing porn

So don't forget to be nice to your
system administratooooooooooooor
his site and source : Three Dead Trolls in a Baggie
