Re: BunsenLabs quotes

^ it's a fine quote, but I honestly don't see why i should include verbatim wikipedia quotes?

btw, i asked you about one of yours earlier, was it an original quote of yours? if so, may i add, it?

Pee out of a tube? I can't even remember what I was thinking there. Google doesn't show anything, I guess it's mine. Use it if you like!

Re: BunsenLabs quotes

Works in any communication related context. I read it with stress on word "look".

Just noticed that extra apostrophe.

Re: BunsenLabs quotes

i think my current practice (*) here is to simply use the quotes presented, if there are no objections (incl. my own).
but you, brontosaurusrex, seem to be objecting, however mildly, so i will wait for your confirmation.

since i don't know what the OP looked like before the mod edit, i don't know what this is all about anyway, but the quote sounds amusing enough on its own.

(*) it seems i am less than consistent. does that make me look stupid?

And I agree that it's funny as hell in context, not so much stand-alone.

-edit The mod edit was me, just removing quotes from the OP announcement. Nothing to write home about.

Someone posted it on the debian-user mailing list the other day. I don't know if they were quoting from elsewhere or not. We could add it, attributed to "anon" perhaps?

Re: BunsenLabs quotes

@johnraff, Charelston was evacuated Tuesday for a storm predicted to hit Friday night. Our restaurant opened Wednesday and then closed til Monday. Thursday was beautiful. Friday I decided to stay downtown, and that night was light rain with wind gusts of 25mph. Same with Saturday. We got less than 2 inches of rain, and there was no storm surge and no flooding. I didn't lose power or Internet, it wasn't even the worst storm of the year. not by a long shot. Everything went to the northwest of here. This whole week has been summer as usual with temps in the low 90s F.

The only impact here was on the economy since the hotels had to be evacuated (we're primarily a tourist destination) and most people left.

Good grief - that's a big city to evacuate!
Anyway, glad it was all OK in the end.
