And there's a nice request!
Someone wishes something on clothes category (not a G-Joe jacket tough...don't pay attention).
As I never experienced driving a vehicle I don't know how hard it is (but I can imagine).

The closest experience I have to it,
is have to type at 8:30am commands on the computer of my school at 5 degrees Celsius!.

Anyway, I bet this isn't nothing, so I hope santa have your request on consideration.

Glad your request was smile (much cheaper, kidding).
But have you searched all the posts of LinuxQuestions?
There are smiles almost everywhere! Like this one

The purpose of this thread was to make a smile and I'm very happy actually 1 between 100 smiled (sucess achievement!)

Now seriously, I hope everyone have a great Christmas, because sometimes presents aren't everything.

Linux Questions have some kinda of Christmas on it, is friendly,
have a bond between people of every kind, and gives answers (this is a feedback direct to Santa Claus that never answered me) for all that a big thanks!
Also is like Christmas every second!

cheers! 9/10 days Left!

What is the temperature? I heard last from my friend that Delhi was somewhere around 6 degrees? Is it? And you go to office at 7:30 in the morning? Are you kidding? I somehow manage to push myself to office at 10 and still feel sleepy most of the time

I wished for a dual-sport motorcycle, to complement my cruiser motorcycle, so that I could travel into the wilderness and see things I can't see from my cruiser.

And, voila! A Suzuki V-Strom 1000 appeared in my garage! Funny thing, though...about the same time my wallet got a bit thinner...

I need a new desk chair, a proper nice high-backed leather one that I can lean back in.

Oops my bad, forgot to allow more than one option to select on the poll.
And yeah nice list!
But why a pack of "Verbatim" DVD+R & DL? Can't be "Sony" DVD-R & DL?

Nice! Now you can offert your cruiser motocycle for someone (pick me, pick me!, kidding)... Anyway glad you can explore better our "planet". If feeling like something different, i.e. "world tour in 1 day", may you can ask santa for his reindeer space shuttle for experience it.

By the way, is it true that some people bought "pieces" of the moon?
\\\------------------------------------------------------------------------///
And everyone, thanks for keep the requests alive!
Seems that santa will have some work from now on, heh?
And 9 days left!

I'm afraid not Dear Santa. -R DL does not have a very good compatibility rate on DVD Players, plus when burning movies the first layer (L0) sometimes is not fully utilized and on -R DL discs, the first layer must be filled up entirely, so you cannot arbitrarily set the layer break.

Essentially -R DL is suitable only for data.

I will ask.

A lonely place with more trees, flying birds, running squirrel, mini apples, a small river. There I can live with out any disturbance and in peace. Before going to that lonely place I have to get married.


Advance Christmas wishes to everyone in this forum.

Cheers

I have just the place for you. You need a dirt bike, a quad, or a horse to get there. Very peaceful.

That place won't be peaceful anymore if you take your wife there!
