I like the like about 'a dynamic hardon-purpose timesink'

I have done LFS, HLFS & Kevux from scratch and they _are_ timesinks. Educational, but timesinks.

someone put a measurable amount of effort into a distro website that doesn't even allow a person to download the ISO. I wouldn't have ever believed there was anyone that insufferable.

Hilarious.

Although it is funny, and I admire the MS paint graphix,.. I can't help but feel sorry for the person who wrote it. So sardonic and derogatory. I wonder if he hates all people that take an interest in anything non-mainstream/prepackaged.

Either that or he hates people the don't. I enjoyed it. I even shared it on Facebook. The only thing that tweaked me off was when he made the comment that nobody has successfully got X to work on it, so I thought to myself: "challenge accepted." That's when I found there's no iso.

Yeah, I certainly wouldn't expend (or even have the time to) that much energy on a joke. But then, they don't do "work," hahaha, so they must have plenty of free time.

Thanks. I've always been keen on doing nothing, so that should be very useful.
